Peaceful place to spend with your loved ones. Even though when we reached there were no towels in the room, however they reacted fast by sending 4 towels after we requested. I love it when we can order the food & eat while observing my kids playing in the pool. However they didn't clean until the next afternoon. The breakfast...

Daniel is a very helpful Staff at the Concierge. He helped to arrange for the public taxi when the hotel's limousines were all out. He even helped a little girl when her water toy bought from the Convenient Shop at the hotel was not working. Daniel went out of his way to get it changed and tested it before giving...

Booked 3 family rooms for my big family in early December 2016. Upon reaching, no concierge to help unload our bags at the car porch. The security guard on duty said it was lunch time hence the only guy manning the concierge counter was not around. He did offer his help though. Check in was swift. The hotel building itself...

We stayed for one night from 11 Dec - 12 Dec 2016. Initially wanted to book the Lotus Desaru but after reading reviews, we decided to give the Tumayama a try as we wanted a more quiet/less crowded place to stay since the Lotus one has many units and has its own water park-like facilities which are suitable for kids....

“DO NOT face the shower at anyone when you first turn it on. The water is super hot and you will get scalded. Let the water run for about 30 seconds after turning it on and carefully test the temperature of water.”
