The resort’s 108 accommodations comprise 90 tastefully decorated en-suite deluxe rooms in low-rise traditional Malay buildings that overlook the gardens, lagoon and ocean. They are adorned with indigenous materials and fabrics, such as woven textiles, renowned Malaysian wicker elements and silhouettes of traditional Malay crafts.

Thirteen stand-alone double storey luxurious one- and two-bedroom pool villas are located around a lagoon. Their design draws heavily from traditional kampong houses that are designed to suit the tropical Malaysian climate with floor-to-ceiling windows, slanted carved wooden panels, louvres and vents under the roof, and wide-open doors that allow natural airflow to cool the interior.

Five expansive family sized three- and four-bedroom residences offer guests utmost privacy with an infinity pool, spacious contemporary living areas, full kitchen and butler service.

Stay at Anantara’s flagship property in Malaysia with the first Residence development outside of Thailand.
Enjoy long stretches of soft, white sand with waves that is perfect for surfing.
