With a presence in more than 75 countries across the globe, Hard Rock International continues expanding its global portfolio with the official opening of its second hotel in Malaysia, Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast. The 365-room property features a mix of music-inspired décor and contemporary accommodations that offer a reprieve from traditional, predictable resorts.

“What excites me the most about Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast is that the DNA of our brand and what we have to offer amplifies everything the destination is being created for; family, fun, friends, live music, great food and amazing experiences,” said Dale Hipsh, senior vice president of Hard Rock Hotels. “We are also pleased to partner with local brands and events within the destination and are confident everyone will love Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast because of the unique experiences we have to offer.”

Located in the state of Johor, on the southeastern region of the Malaysian coast, the stunning Hard Rock property is situated in Desaru Coast – a premium integrated destination resort and one of Malaysia’s most anticipated new tourism developments. The up-and-coming integrated destination encompasses everything needed for a luxury vacation, from restaurants, shopping and 45-holes of golf, to one of the world’s largest waterparks featuring a giant wave pool and man-made beach. The property boasts a range of stylish accommodations, including Studio Suites, Rock Royalty Suites and a Rock Star Suite. Additionally, kid-focused amenities provide the ultimate all-access pass to family-fun, like the Hard Rock Roxity Kids Club™ where little rockers can enjoy fun and supervised activities, giving parents some much needed ‘me time.’

The property features four enticing dining outlets, including Sessions all-day dining, Constant Grind coffee & bar, GMT+8 Lobby bar and The Elephant & The Butterfly – a Mexican poolside bar & grill.

Hotel guests can visit the Rock Shop® to purchase iconic Hard Rock merchandise, while fitness fanatics will enjoy the Sound Body® wellness experiences, such as a fully-equipped Body Rock® fitness center, in-room Rock Om® yoga program and for those who want to relax, there’s the rejuvenating Rock Spa®. Also available is the Sound of Your Stay® music amenity program, which allows guests to set the mood with complimentary vinyl players and records or strike a chord on a Fender guitar during an in-room jam session, complete with an amp and head phones.

Throughout the property, guests can explore the vibrant collection of iconic music memorabilia at their own pace or join in the daily memorabilia tour, organized and led by the in-house VIBE manager. All of the memorabilia is carefully curated and chosen from Hard Rock’s world-famous collection, which features more than 80,000 items.

“This is an exciting time for Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast, as we have a huge variety of entertainment and services to offer to our valued guests,” said Yogeswaran Veerasamy, general manager of Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast. “We’re looking forward to bringing new brand experiences to one of the region’s leading tourist destinations.”
