Hard Rock Hotel
Strategically situated between the Desaru Awesome Water Park (DAWP) – home to the largest wave pool in South East Asia – and Riverside, a new retail and entertainment quarter, Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast is a 365–room hotel located just a 5–minute walk away from Desaru Beach. Anchoring the hotel is the Main House, a 2–storey building with a reception lobby, 2 restaurants, 2 bars, a deli/business centre, and a gymnasium, while the back of house facilities are tucked behind and below the main building. This creates a plateau overlooking the DAWP wave pool, offering guests elevated views of water park activities and the wave pool.
Fanning out from the main building are 11 accommodation blocks set within lush landscape, with 80% of the rooms facing the DAWP wave pool and the remaining having views of Riverside. Facilities include 2 swimming pools – a main pool and a dedicated kids waterplay pool – an internationally acclaimed spa, the Woodstock Concert Lawn, and the Roxity Kids Club. The hotel also displays specially commissioned murals, sculptures, and classic Hard Rock Memorabilia, all with a Malaysian rock twist.
