Desaru 迪沙鲁 day 1

The nearest resort in Malaysia could very well be Desaru. In fact, when we talk about Desaru, Lotus and seafood always come into the picture.

Together with 大舅’s family, we were at Lotus Desaru for a 3D2N holiday during school holidays.

There is a new expressway to Desaru. Just head towards Kota Tingi, follow Desaru signboard. Once you reach “E22” expressway, it means Desaru FUN is about 70 km away 🙂 The journey took us one hour from Malaysia custom.

This has shaved 1 hour off the old-route. We got a google map on our Desaru Itinerary post.

We book the two-bedroom unit at Lotus for it’s spaciousness.

A pool view would definitely be more enchanting.

Earlier, while the adults are checking into our room at the lobby, kids could not contain their excitement as the maps indicate swimming pools everywhere !

Lotus Desaru consists of a few blocks, you will need a jeepney to travel in between the blocks.

The kids do not mind 🙂

In the afternoon, we start our Fun with Lazy River.

Video : Only the video can show you how much Fun we had!

The pool. Everyone from the Lazy River will be dumped here.

** Do take note that adult should follow if the kid is a non-swimmer. The exit point of the slide have some strong currents, and are often congested. Kids might crash into someone else and the current might churn the kids round and round.

You must try the Coconut. The husk will pour gallons of water onto you ! There is a children playground, but we will recommend that smaller kids avoid the slide. Too steep and fast, we have seen kids slide and land with a big thud :p

We promised this simple slide next to COCONUT will be interesting too. It is suitable for children all ages. Kids love to go down the slide in a convoy !

Boon Xin kept covering her hands before impact. Hillarious !

The “waterfall” at the pool is always popular. Xin and Yi like to shower under the water streams.

In the evening, we decided to drove out for seafood dinner. Do take note Sungei Renggit is the nearest town with decent seafood. It is 28Km, 30min away, and road is dark, with pot holes. There are certain stretches where we cannot even see the center divider, high beam away 🙂

Otherwise, once you reach Sungei Renggit, just look for any restaurant with customers. We were clueless too, and we end up with Jade (*updated 2014Dec – On our second trip, we found a Jade Garden but it seems to have been upgraded to an aircon restaurant, we ended up with “Beautiful Village”)

Our dinner was very Satisfying 🙂 Daddy was curious why most restaurant is recommended by Singapore’s Channel U?

Kids looking at their seafood, before and after. Did I ate that lobster?
