Mention “Johor” and one thinks of makan, massage, and manicures. Now, you can also get Into The Groove in this Malaysian state.
With the opening of the much-anticipated Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast, visitors to the area can look forward to the comfort of rock star lodgings and an experience that will have you Walking On Sunshine.
“Music is something we live and breathe by, and we’re excited to share with our guests a holiday like no other, where music takes centre stage,” said Mr Yoges Veerasamy, general manager of the hotel. “Everyone has a song that brings back memories of special occasions, people and places in their heart. We want to celebrate that music.”
So if you’ve Still Got The Blues because your upcoming weekends are looking a little mundane, just Beat It with a 90-minute road trip up north, that will set you on the Stairway To Heaven.
Room In Your Heart
Take your pick from 365 music-inspired rooms and suites with individual balconies – perfect for belting out Don’t Cry For Me Argentina. Each room comes with a complimentary mini-bar that is replenished daily. Cheers Darlin’.
Sleep All Night Long on the 300-thread count “Sleep like a Rock” bedding – sheets that feel like they were made for Royals. If the pull of the bed proves stronger than the many attractions outside, no one will judge if you choose to tune in to the complimentary HD movies on demand and Sleep All Day.
Put Your Records On
Audiophiles and musicians rejoice! “The Sound of Your Stay” is a complimentary music amenity programme designed for your ears and comprises three services:
- Tracks: Download curated music playlists to Listen To Your Heart’s content during your stay.
- Picks: Do That Thing You Do on one of the hotel’s premium Fender electric guitars available for loan, delivered to your room with a Fender Mustang floor amp and Nixon headphones. If your fingers are a little rusty, in-room video lessons can guide you to your favourite riffs.
- Wax: Revel in the warm sound of 10 iconic vinyl records chosen by Hard Rock’s team of music experts, as you spin them on a Crosley turntable and Dance The Night Away.
Thank You For The Music
A Hard Rock Hotel experience wouldn’t be complete without live music. Forget the stresses of the week and Let It Go as live bands and DJs take you on a musical journey.
For a good dose of family fun, every first Sunday of the month is Pool Party day, where some serious Splish Splash goes on in the outdoor pool.
There is also Rock Spa, a full-service spa that gives Hard Rock's signature Rhythm and Motion treatment menu a musical twist. Just Come As You Are. And if you need someone to entertain the kids while you relax, Hard Rock Roxity Kids Club will keep the kids amused while having Fun.
Food, Glorious Food
After all that Bodyrock, replenish your energy with Mexican fare at The Elephant and The Butterfly, or at Sessions, the all-day dining restaurant. Constant Grind cafe brings you more than an Americano, with more drinks available at GMT+8 lobby bar.
Capture this One Moment In Time
From the giant Mandala guitar that greets you at the hotel lobby (perfect for selfies!), to the unique memorabilia tour, looking back on these moments will bring you Back To Life.
Before you say Bye Bye Bye, drop by the Rock Shop and pick up a collectible unique to Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast.
Even as the road back to Singapore beckons, and you feel Sorry that your Holiday is coming to an end, Don’t Stop Believin’ that music can Heal The World, Time After Time.
