Tourism players in Kota Tinggi, Johor, are expecting a good number of visitors, especially domestic tourists, during the current school holidays.

Lotus Desaru Beach Resort and Spa chief executive officer R. Indra Gandhi Pillai said,“We received many enquiries from locals and a small number of foreigners, including Singaporeans, wanting to stay with us during this period.

“There are 750 rooms at our resort with 70% of them booked for the school break.”

Indra added that many people were looking forward to taking a break from their busy schedules.

“As we are located on a beach, it can get a bit cold at night, which will offer some comfort to our guests during this current hot spell,” she said.

Kota Tinggi Tourism Association honorary secretary Rafeah Mohd Noah said the district had much to offer both domestic and international visitors.

She added that Kota Tinggi had beaches, forests and mountains for nature lovers as well as museums and historical sites for history buffs.

“In terms of connectivity, Kota Tinggi is a short drive from Johor Baru.

“We hope to receive many tourists during the current school holidays.

“This will help spur the tourism industry in Kota Tinggi, which was impacted during the major floods that hit Johor earlier this year,” she said.

Rafeah, who is also Kota Tinggi tourism information centre general manager, added that the number of visitors coming to the district had increased, especially during the recent Hari Raya Aidilfitri season.
