Hello my dearies! Here’s a very warm welcome to you from Changi Ferry Terminal.

IMG_3784IMG_3788

I’m heading to Desaru, Johor Malaysia with my parents. Yippee!

IMG_3790

Our ferry journey took only a short time of 20 minutes.

IMG_3791IMG_3794

There we are. Welcome to Malaysia.

IMG_3796IMG_3799

We stayed at Desaru Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort.

IMG_3804IMG_3806

The room is reasonably comfortable and homely, and quite spacious too.

IMG_3815IMG_3823

Our room faces the swimming pool and beach. Very nice view!

IMG_3827IMG_3829

However, the lift STINKS!

IMG_3843IMG_3850

After settling down, we headed down to the restaurant for our lunch. Papa’s nasi goreng was my favourite as it had a very Malaysian style and was spicy enough as well. Satays were a little too flavourful but still nice.

IMG_3851IMG_3852

Mummy’s fish and chips was so-so while my mackerel sandwich was horrible. Wrong choice. The mackerel was so rough and salty.

IMG_3854

Anyway, our resort has nothing much except a restaurant, a bar and a swimming pool. No water sports as yet.

IMG_3856

After lunch and a short rest, I took a dip into the pool.

IMG_3862IMG_3866

Next up, I bathed and changed and headed to Ostrich Showfarm. It costs RM45 per pax for 2 way transportation from resort to Ostrich Showfarm and vice versa. Oh yes, the RM45 spent includes the Ostrich Showfarm’s entrance ticket too.

IMG_3891IMG_3905

Hello, I’m back to visit you, my dear OSTRICHES!!!!!!!!!!!! I last saw you close to three years ago, back in 2012.

IMG_3917IMG_3893

Black feathers with red beak = male ostrich. The rest would be female. Once the female lays eggs, its feathers would drop.

IMG_3940IMG_3945

As the weather was pretty warm, I bought an ice-cream to keep the doctor away! By the way, I didn’t know that an ostrich egg shell could actually last a 100 years! Its shell could also be used for displays and act as a lamp. Cool huh.

IMG_3946IMG_3948IMG_4204

Whatever it is, nothing beats finding STITCH stuffs at Desaru Fruit Farm! (I’ll talk about the fruit farm in a while…)

IMG_3953IMG_3965

Desaru beach is a long stretch of beach and the waves happened to be really strong while I was there.

IMG_3970

Sand art!

IMG_3971

We settled our dinner at the resort’s restaurant again. Lime juice for me please!

IMG_3974IMG_3976

Mummy tried the pineapple fried rice while papa and I shared a 10 inch pizza.

IMG_3979IMG_3993

There’s zero soul at the bar so I didn’t drink anything for the night and went back to the room to rest early before awaking to a sunny day the very next morning!!!!!!!!!!!

IMG_3997IMG_3998

American breakfast and nasi lemak breakfast to kickstart Day 2 Desaru!

IMG_4003IMG_4004

Coming to think of it, the exterior of Desaru Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort looks a bit like a SCHOOL right?

IMG_4010IMG_4018

After breakfast, we walked along the beach and visited Pulai Desaru Beach Resort & Spa. It’s glamorous!

IMG_4026IMG_4028

We also played a few games of basketball 😀

IMG_4031IMG_4050

There’s even a mini arcade over at Pulai Desaru too! Well, it definitely had more things to see and do than Tunamaya. However, since Pulai’s also more crowded, it could also mean there’s less peace and quietness to experience. I personally feel that if I were to stay in a beach resort, I would prefer if there’s lesser people so I can relax more and enjoy the nature, sea and peace.

IMG_4048IMG_4044

We then walked further along the beach all the way to Lotus Desaru Beach Resort & Spa. Its exterior is nice too!

IMG_4033IMG_4041

There’s a retail shop and water sports are also available in Lotus Desaru as well.

IMG_4049IMG_4192

I bought a beanie at Lotus Desaru for RM14 only. Cheap cheap huh!

IMG_4066IMG_4069

After exploring Pulai Desaru and Lotus Desaru, we walked along the beach again back to Desaru Tunamaya, i.e. our resort. The weather was pretty hot and so I went for a swim again.

IMG_4061IMG_4070

After swimming, I bathed and changed into my new tortoise T-shirt bought from Pulai Desaru! =D I’m so vain.

IMG_4074IMG_4076

Thereafter, we checked out of our room and proceeded to Desaru Fruit Farm.

IMG_4078IMG_4083

We had a fruits buffet, steamed eggs, asam fishes, curry chicken, stir-fry vegetables, black pepper sotongs, fried prawns, clear soup, white rice, cat whisker’s tea, and papaya juice for our sumptuous lunch. Both the lunch and fruit farm entrance ticket costs a total of RM58.30 per pax.

IMG_4100IMG_4109IMG_4110

And here we go on our fruit trail!

IMG_4113IMG_4142

There were many passionfruits hanging on the top of the fruit trail.

IMG_4147IMG_4148

3 years ago, I was here. 3 years later, I’m back again and this fake cow is still here lor. NEVER CHANGE!!!!!!!! Omg, Desaru Fruit Farm, why you no upgrade one?

IMG_4145IMG_4150

The mini zoo is still pretty much the same as that I saw 3 years ago too.

IMG_4159IMG_4162

Fluffy rabbit!

IMG_4168IMG_4169

Hungry goats I suppose. Look at their eager heads popping out! I bet they must be hoping visitors would feed them milk milk.

IMG_4171IMG_4174

See this particular goat, skinny until almost can squeeze out liao!

IMG_4175IMG_4178

The lorry that drove us around Desaru Fruit Farm is ALSO THE SAME as that 3 years ago. For my experience 3 years ago, do read up this link!

IMG_4180IMG_4182IMG_4206

Finally, after tasting some sample honey, we bought some pong piah, cat whisker’s tea leaves, coffee and star fruits from Desaru Fruit Farm before hopping onto the mini bus to send us back to the ferry terminal.

IMG_4181IMG_4184

We reached the ferry terminal around 3pm and had to wait for an hour before our ferry departure time at 4pm.

IMG_4195IMG_4199

Therefore, I killed time by playing darts before boarding the ferry.

IMG_4187

Bang, kill myself. Thanks for reading!

  1. Hello, not sure if the ferry from Changi ferry point is the right choice. The resort looks good! How do you travel from resort to the farms like Ostrich farm, etc?

    • You can simply take a taxi. I paid rm45 for two way transport from resort to ostrich farm and vice versa inclusive of entrance ticket. Hope it helps!

  2. Hello! Im interested to stay at the Lotus Desaru Beach Resort & Spa, which I believe isn’t very far from the resort you stayed at. But how to do arrive at the resort by the ferry? Do you have to change another transport from somewhere after you alight the ferry?

    • In Singapore, you can take the ferry from changi ferry terminal. After alight ferry, can arrange with resort to pick you up from ferry terminal to resort either complimentary or a small fee. Otherwise can take taxi to resort. Hope it helps!
