Hot! Visit Malaysia’s newest getaway destination, Desaru Coast via a quick 90 minute ferry ride!

Desaru Coast


Malaysia’s newest integrated destination at Desaru Coast has worked together with Batam Fast Ferry to officially commence passenger ferry services that connect Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal with Desaru Coast Ferry Terminal- cutting down a long 3 to 4 hour car ride to just 90 minutes by ferry!

The highly anticipated inaugural ferry service set sail from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal at 8.30 am and was warmly welcomed by the Desaru Coast and Batam Fast team at Desaru Coast Ferry Terminal. The journey only took approximately 90 minutes.

For the first few initial months, Batam Fast will only operate one daily round trip service from Thursday to Sunday in the morning and evening. However, since the sale of tickets began on 30 June 2022, Batam Fast has seen a healthy take-up for the new service and even extended their service operations to meet the demand of the Hari Raya Haji long weekend for both Singapore and Malaysia! Batam Fast will continue to scale ferry services accordingly as demand increases.

Through this scheduled, fast and convenient cross-border connectivity between Singapore and Johor, we look forward to welcoming more international travellers to Johor and driving tourism for the state.” said Roslina Arbak, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Desaru Development Holdings One Sdn. Bhd.

In conjunction with the commencement of service, Batam Fast has been running a special promotion for the first three months. With the promo code available on its website – customers can purchase discounted tickets at SGD$98 during this period.

Concurrently, to celebrate the new service, Desaru Coast has introduced special staycation packages (RM$2379 / SGD$743), for its hotel and golf resorts as well as a new category of packages – its Daycation packages (RM$378 / SGD$118) offer unique experiences such as golfing on the fairways of its world-class courses, resort-style dining at any of the hotel’s restaurants and spending the day at its pristine beaches or taking a dip at Adventure Waterpark!
