Enchanting Lunar New Year Celebrations at One&Only Desaru Coast

Desaru is located just a stone’s throw away from Singapore and it has been a very popular choice of Singapore families for a quick, fun and short getaway. This Lunar New Year, families can look forward to making meaningful, unforgettable memories at the ultra-luxury One&Only Desaru Coast resort.

True to its name, One&Only Desaru Coast hosts a breathtaking collection of expansive suites and positions itself as an ultra-luxury family getaway that’s just a 90-minute ferry service from Singapore.

One&Only Desaru Coast

Visitors can embrace the festive spirit with Chinese cultural traditions such as ceremonial lion dance performances, firecracker lighting, and a visit from the prosperity buddha AKA Dai Tou Fat. Among many other fun-filled family activities, guests can unleash their creative side with an interactive calligraphy workshop.

When it comes to Lunar New Year, the iconic glutinous dessert, tang yuan, is a quintessential must-have treat. A favourite among many Singaporeans, One&Only Desaru Coast’s very own Ambara restaurant will be hosting a class teaching guests how to recreate their very own rendition and the recipe for this delicious treat.

If there are bountifully planned activities for adults, kids won’t feel left out at all.
