The ultra luxurious One & Only Resorts is set to make its Malaysian debut in Desaru, Johor.

Located in Desaru Coast, the resort by Kerzner International will be set in a 51.79ha beachfront development. It will include 42 suites, two luxury suites and an exclusive four-bedroom villa.

In addition to the resort, 50 private homes will also be integrated into the development.

One & Only Resorts president and chief operating officer Philippe Zuber said Malaysia is the perfect location for the brand to enter the region.

“We find the most stunning destinations to create beautifully rare places for our guests to play, to dream, to work, to connect, reconnect and discover the new.

“As with all properties within the portfolio, our resort in Malaysia will be incredibly private, yet buzzing with life and energy,” he said.

Kerzner International chief executive officer Michael Wale said the resort here will blend both hospitality and community.

“One & Only Desaru Coast will be an incredible beach destination, with an exclusive residential community. We look forward to continuing to introduce new experiences for our guests to discover and the resort will offer a magnetic hideaway,” he said.

The resort is set to provide modern Malaysian elegance, showcasing the incredible natural elements of the region.

Like all properties within the One & Only collection, the resort will place an emphasis on privacy. The destination is also a golf-lover’s paradise with The Els Club Desaru Coast nearby.

In addition to championship golf courses, Desaru Coast will provide a riverside dining haven, a conference centre and adventure waterpark.

It will be accessible from Senai International Airport in Johor and Singapore’s Changi International Airport.

The resort’s opening date will be announced in the near future.
