Anantara Desaru Coast Residences offers ideal holiday or investment property in this up-and-coming destination

Offering scenic ocean views, wide open spaces and easy access to a range of outdoor activities, Desaru Coast is emerging as a desirable off-the-beaten-path destination for travellers and property buyers alike. Located along a pristine 17-kilometre beachfront facing the South China Sea in Johor Darul Ta’zim, this unique gem is one of Malaysia’s rising-star tourism developments with so much to offer.

Minor International, one of the largest hospitality, restaurant and lifestyle companies in Asia Pacific, recently launched Anantara Desaru Coast Residences, the first resort branded residences in this market. With a prime beachfront location and the promise of turnkey luxury in the midst of a 5-star resort, the award-winning development is the ideal investment for discerning buyers seeking a second home for family holidays, rental income or retirement.

“With increasing tourism focus and private and public investment on Desaru Coast in the last few years, interest in the area’s property market has grown,” explains Mr. Micah Tamthai, Vice President of Real Estate, Minor International. “With Anantara Desaru Coast Residences, we wanted to develop a property that offers much more than real estate investment: more than a luxury home in the heart of one of the region’s most beautiful coastal landscapes, it is an opportunity enjoy seaside living in a vibrant destination that appeals to everyone.”

With its own international airport and future ferry terminal, Desaru Coast is easily accessible from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and beyond. While its two championship golf courses – managed by The Els Club – have long attracted golfers to the destination, Desaru Coast is fast developing its reputation for other outdoor and recreational pursuits.

For the young and young-at-heart, Adventure Waterpark Desaru Coast is one of the world’s largest waterparks. Nature lovers can avail to a multitude of eco-tours and walking, hiking and bird watching opportunities at the Sungai Belungkor Forest Reserve – home to a quarter of the world’s mangrove species. Those seeking an active (and action-packed) lifestyle will also enjoy scenic coastal cycling trips to Sedili or to Batu Layar Beach – joining a growing group of keen cyclists who pioneered these trails, as well as kitesurfing, sport fishing and other watersports off Desaru Coast Beach.

Developed jointly with Themed Attractions Resorts & Hotels (TAR&H), a subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad, Anantara Desaru Coast Residences offers 20 three and four-bedroom luxury villas – each featuring between 3,100 to 6,426 square feet of fully furnished living space, a private infinity pool and direct access to the beach. The residences are situated along a pristine beach facing the South China Sea, offering the privacy and seclusion of a beachfront sanctuary in the midst of lush nature. The Residences are managed, maintained and serviced by the five-star Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas, offering owners access to the resort’s world-class facilities, including a private beach, a lagoon pool, an ocean-fronting infinity pool, Anantara Spa, a fitness centre, kids’ clubs and a variety of restaurants.

Designed for family-friendly luxury, Anantara Desaru Coast Residences are perfectly suited for buyers looking for a well-managed second home with the assurance of a trusted luxury hospitality brand. Owners enjoy hassle-free home ownership as well as the opportunity to earn returns through a resort-managed rental program.

Anantara Desaru Coast Residences’ three- and four-bedroom villas are available for purchase at a starting price of MYR 7.5 million.
