Desaru Coast, Malaysia – – An exclusive retreat nestled on one of Malaysia’s most pristine coastal strips, Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas has expanded its portfolio of luxury holiday homes with an addition of five three- and four-bedroom residences, bringing the total number of short- and long-term villas and residences at the resort to 116 units.
The modern, low-slung buildings strike a balance between architecturally designed and cosy, and are seamlessly integrated into the area’s lush natural setting. Eco-friendly touches include a smart skylight that reduces energy consumption, refillable bathroom amenities, and rainwater recycling system for irrigation water.
The new 288-square-metre Three-Bedroom Residences can accommodate six adults and three children, and are perfect for multi-generational getaways or friends’ weekends away. Fronting the glass-enclosed structures are spacious decks with a private pool, an outdoor shower and a shaded dining area, which provides a quiet oasis for reconnecting. Ensuite bedrooms and an elegant dining area come with ample living space, while the powder room and helper’s room offer functionality. Making the most of Anantara’s peerless service, guests can outsource meal planning to their butler who can arrange a floating breakfast, a poolside BBQ or a fully bespoke experience.
Spanning two levels, the new 597-square-metre Four-Bedroom Residence can accommodate eight adults and four children. On the ground floor, guests share a range of flowing spaces, with a glazed front ensuring that the landscape remains strongly present everywhere. Upstairs, the architects have placed the master bedroom tucked away in a more private setting, with large windows framing picture-perfect views. Downstairs, two king and one twin bedrooms face calming green gardens whereas the airy upper floor living room is bathed in joyful tropical sunshine through a skylight, while a wellness room comes equipped with a treadmill, yoga mats and a professional massage bed. A nature-hedged pool deck is ideal for soaking up the warm Malaysian sunshine or cooling off with a frozen drink in a personal plunge pool, as well as enjoying alfresco meals on the pool deck.
All residences boast cutting-edge kitchens and pantries stocked with complimentary luxury amenities replenished daily, latest AV equipment, and a wine fridge. Guests also get to enjoy complimentary non-motorised water sports, MYR 500 resort credit per residence per day, access to a private beach, kids’ and teen clubs.
