Kerzner International Holdings Limited announces the introduction of One&Only Desaru Coast in Malaysia. A 128-acre beachfront development, this ultimate bespoke lifestyle experience will include 42 suites, 2 luxury suites and an exclusive 4-bedroom villa, as well as approximately 50 One&Only Private Homes available for purchase. This will be the first One&Only in Malaysia as part of the expanding One&Only collection, as the brand continues to grow and develop internationally. Kerzner manages a portfolio of globally renowned, landmark destination resorts, luxury hotels and residences and innovative entertainment experiences.
One&Only was conceived as a hallmark of excellence, set in some of the most beautiful locations in the world. With the evolution of the One&Only portfolio, these new experiences will complement the existing award-winning resort collection, a vivid and inspiriting celebration of life. Glamourous in style but wonderfully unstuffy by nature—One&Only offers guests a distinctive style and personality borne of its local culture, and genuine hospitality that is unparalleled.
Accessible from Singapore Changi International Airport and Senai International Airport in Johor, Desaru Coast is the new premium integrated destination located in the south-eastern region of Malaysia, in the state of Johor. Inspired by the azure ocean waters and lush tropical landscape, the resort will provide modern Malaysian elegance, showcasing the incredible natural elements of the region. One&Only will honour the country’s rich culture and traditions throughout the design and experience.
Like all properties within the One&Only collection, the resort, designed by award-winning architectural firm, Kerry Hill Architects, will place an emphasis on privacy, providing the ultimate hideaway. Secluded Private Homes, perfect for couples or large families, will be a sanctuary for those that want a private haven to call home. One&Only Desaru Coast will also be home to an indulgent destination spa, introducing traditional and holistic practices fused with modern spa therapies, with overall wellness at its core. A cutting-edge fitness centre –featuring both indoor and outdoor spaces–will also be part of the overall lifestyle offering. The destination is a golf-lover’s paradise with The Els Club Desaru Coast nearby, featuring both the Ocean Course, a 27-hole layout designed by 4-time Major Champion, Ernie Els and the Valley Course, a further 18-holes designed in collaboration with Els’ long-standing friend and fellow major champion, Vijay Singh.
The resort will become a culinary destination, offering three restaurants, a dynamic bar for the latest in mixology and a Beach Club, each defined by their own distinct ethos, energy, design and flavour, showcasing the bounty of the region. The Beach Club will be a vibrant location where guests and residents alike will want to linger at the water’s edge for hours, to lounge, socialise or play.
New experiences will be introduced to discover the best of both land and sea – full of adventure. As with all One&Only properties, the resort will offer innovative programming for families with children whilst carefully preserving space for adults only as well. From awe-inspiring natural landscapes to state-of-the-art facilities for sports, wellness, cooking and more, One&Only Desaru Coast will be a stimulating oasis for active, mindful and creative pursuits, regardless of age or passion.
Outdoor spaces will also be available that can be transformed into incredible locations for private, intimate events, offering spectacular views.
