Pulai Desaru Beach Resort & Spa Featuring Eco Tour Back To Nature Experience

On my last introduction for my Johor escapade, we started off the journey from KL 7.30am. On a 2 cars convoy, we reach Senai airport for a break around 11am. After the break, we head to Desaru via the new E22 Senai – Desaru Expressway which shorten our trip which previously take longer hours. In the olden days, we need to go all the way down to Johor Bahru and from there drive another 1 hour plus just to reach Desaru.

E22 has been fully completed and opened to public starting from 10 June 2011. The final stretch from Cahaya Baru to Desaru is approximately 27 km in length which includes the Single Plane Cable-Stayed Bridge across Sg Johor that ends at the Penawar Interchange.

With the linkage to Desaru, Desaru will be truly rejuvenated and is expected to increase the number of visitors, both locals and foreigners to Desaru. With the completion of the highway, travelling distance from Ulu Tiram to Penawar is reduced by 16 km while travelling time reduced by 1 hour. For more details on the Expressway Map.

We touch down at the Hotel and were greeted by the staffs who were expecting our arrival.

Without wasting much time, we proceed to the check in counter. Upon stepping in to the main lobby, we already can feel the sea breeze and fresh air from the surrounding lush greenery. The tall and high ceiling is a design concept where there are no air condition needed. Eventhough it was a bright sunny day, the air in the premiss is so cool.

All the toilets look pretty the same with a bath tub and a WC at the side. There are a shower area also.

You can tell the front desk to put you in the room facing the beach and pool side. All these rooms were highly sought after and subject to availability.

The landscape view from our rooms

80% of the view is green, 15% sky blue and 5% landscaping blue.

There are not much foods around the area so we dine pretty much in the hotel for dinner and breakfast. Or you can choose the outdoor activity which we going to eat at the local villagers place shortly.
