One&Only’s first Malaysian resort to include ‘indulgent destination spa’

by Jane Kitchen | 28 Aug 2018

One&Only Resorts will open its first location in Malaysia, the One&Only Desaru Coast, in late 2018.

Set on a 128-acre beachfront development, the resort will include 42 suites, two luxury suites and a four-bedroom villa, as well as 50 One&Only Private Homes available for purchase.

Designed by Kerry Hill Architects, One&Only will place an emphasis on privacy through the design, which has been inspired by the ocean waters and lush tropical landscape. The resort will showcase the natural elements of the region, and honour the country’s culture and traditions throughout its design.

“As part of the continued strategic global growth of Kerzner International, Malaysia is the perfect location for the next One&Only resort and for the brand to enter Asia,” said Michael Wale, CEO of Kerzner International, which owns the One&Only brand. “With the evolution of One&Only and the introduction of One&Only Private Homes, Nature Resorts and Urban Resorts, One&Only Desaru Coast will be an incredible beach destination, with an exclusive residential community.”

A “cutting-edge” fitness centre with both indoor and outdoor spaces will also be part of the overall lifestyle offering.
