A 128-acre beachfront development, this ultimate bespoke lifestyle experience will feature 42 suites, an additional two  luxury suites and an exclusive 4-bedroom villa. For those seeking to stay longer, approximately 50 One&Only Private Homes will be available for purchase.

One&Only’s debut property in Malaysia as part of the expanding collection, the new opening will offer guests the ultimate lavish escape.

The resort, designed by award-winning architectural firm, Kerry Hill Architects, will place an emphasis on privacy, providing the ultimate hideaway. Guests can also relax with a visit to an indulgent destination spa, introducing traditional and holistic practices fused with modern spa therapies, with overall wellness at its core.  .

The resort will become a culinary destination, offering three restaurants, a dynamic bar for the latest in mixology and a Beach Club, each defined by their own distinct ethos, energy, design and flavour, showcasing the bounty of the region. The Beach Club will be a vibrant location where guests and residents alike will want to linger at the water’s edge for hours, to lounge, socialise or play.
