We are at the Lotus Desaru Resort supposedly for a day and I cannot believe that we are leaving the resort that quick. It felt that we did not do much and spend most of the time traveling. Then, Little Girl suggests that we can extend our trip and have all the time to ourselves. I immediately said let’s do it.

Cloudy Sunrise at Desaru

We woke up early that morning and too bad, there was no beautiful sunrise. We did have some quiet time and relaxation at the beach before we go for our breakfast.

Check-in again

Since we have to check-out the current room before 10am to check-in to a smaller room at 2pm, we packed our stuff nicely and waited at the lobby for 2 hours after we bid goodbyes to our family. Since there’s free Internet Wifi, time flies by very quickly.

Back to Lotus Desaru

Little Girl and I spent the rest of the day in the resort. The resort is pretty big and there are a lot of activities and shops around the resort. It’s so big that you’ll need to travel via their internal shuttle tram as it’s too tiring to get from one place to another by walking.

Sunset at Desaru

To be honest, we did not expect the sunset to be dramatic since we missed the sunrise in the morning.

Last day at Lotus Desaru

Before we made our way back to Singapore, we are lucky that the sunrise at Desaru was beautiful this time in the morning.

Overall Desaru Experience

When we asked our friends and families the one place to in Malaysia, their responses will either be Legoland Malaysia or JB downtown area/shopping mall. To us, our answer is Desaru. Unlike everywhere else in Malaysia, Desaru is safe with a lot of securities and everybody in the resort is friendly and approachable. Desaru, we will be back soon!
