Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has announced the debut of its first luxury hotel in Malaysia, a spectacular beachfront property in the country’s south-eastern coastline featuring authentic luxury and indigenous-inspired hospitality.

Today’s ultra-modern lifestyle has become too fast-paced. And for weary travellers looking to relax, the luxury hotels in the urban jungle may not be enough to provide an escape. For a real getaway, an escape from the hustle and bustle of this lifestyle, one will find peace in a truly secluded environment.

Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas is a high-end resort development featuring lush tropical gardens, nestled along a pristine 10.5-mile coastline, providing a unique and brand new experience.

The new property, a joint venture between the Bangkok-based international hotel group and its Malaysian partner, Themed Attractions Resorts & Hotels, is one of the country’s most anticipated new tourism developments — a new luxury destination for both locals and international travellers.

“Authentic Anantara luxury”

Commenting on the opening, Thomas Meier, Minor Hotels’ senior vice president of operations in Asia, said: “We are all set to offer discerned travellers authentic Anantara luxury on Malaysia’s golden shores.”

A luxurious haven in the heart of a tranquil environment…
