Award-winning developer debuts luxury branded residences on Malay Peninsula


Minor International is pleased to announce the launch of the first Anantara-branded residential villa development in Malaysia – Anantara Desaru Coast Residences. Set on the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula with easy access from Kuala Lumpur and other cities in Malaysia, Anantara Desaru Coast Residences offers a unique coastal lifestyle with a collection of luxury villas for sale, complete with access to exclusive resort amenities, amidst the stunning Desaru Coast – an up-and-coming vacation destination with championship golf courses, water parks, beach recreation, shopping and dining.

“We’re delighted to introduce Anantara’s authentic luxury to the Malaysian peninsula,” said Micah Tamthai, Vice President of Real Estate, Minor International. “Located in one of the country’s most coveted areas, and with only twenty residences available, this development is a benchmark of prestige and exclusivity.”

“Anantara Desaru Coast Residences offers a unique blend of luxury, resort-style beachfront living and family-friendly amenities. With an ideal location in the heart of the Desaru Coast, the new residences are the perfect seaside retreat for families from Malaysia and beyond,” added Micah.

Developed by Minor International – one of the largest hospitality, restaurant and lifestyle companies in Asia Pacific, and Themed Attractions Resorts & Hotels (TAR&H) – a subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad, Anantara Desaru Coast Residences features 20 three- and four-bedroom private pool villas, each with sweeping views of the South China Sea and direct access to an endless stretch of private beach. The elegant villas range in size from 3,100 to 6,426 square feet and offer indoor-outdoor living space with natural light and ocean breezes coming through floor-to-ceiling windows, open dining and lounge areas and expansive pool decks. Surrounded by lush foliage for added privacy, spacious en-suite bedrooms boast views of the infinity pool, the beach and the ocean.

The residences are managed and serviced year-round by the adjacent Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas. Owners and residents enjoy exclusive access to the resort’s five-star amenities. This includes a private beach, a lagoon pool and an ocean-fronting infinity pool, Anantara Spa, fitness centre, kids and teens clubs as well as myriad Malaysian, Thai and international dining options.

Desaru Coast is an emerging coastal destination that is well supported by private and public investments in existing and upcoming infrastructure. Comprising 17 kilometres of unspoiled beachfront, Desaru Coast offers a selection of internationally renowned branded hotels and resorts, two championship golf courses by The Els Club Desaru Coast, the Adventure Waterpark – one of the world’s largest, a variety of beach and water activities, as well as shopping and dining venues.

Desaru Coast’s vast growth potential as a luxury destination, coupled with Minor International’s decades of experience in branded residential management, make Anantara Desaru Coast Residences an excellent investment opportunity.

The residences are available for purchase at a starting price of MYR 7.5 million.
