Happy To Be Five

Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast celebrates 5 years of success and shows its dedication to sustainability


Five years after it first opened, the Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast (HRHDC) has reached new heights thanks to its unrelenting dedication to sustainability as well as its great reputation for excellent entertainment and hospitality.

The renowned resort has not only reached important milestones but also effectively navigated through difficulties and challenging times. The pandemic struck the world just over a year and a half after the grand opening, putting the devoted team’s resiliency, tenacity, and labour of love to the test. Despite facing challenges, the resort survived and thrived thanks to their unwavering dedication to giving visitors a safe and memorable experience. A further sign of the Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast’s dedication to its team members was the absence of any personnel layoffs during the trying time.

With sustainability being such a large part of the resort’s mission, HRHDC has achieved significant goals such as reducing single-use plastic, composting waste, and partnering with local suppliers to deliver their produce in plastic-free packaging, among others. These commendable sustainability efforts supports the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact on human rights, environment and anti-corruption, which has led them to become a member of the United Nations Global Compact Malaysia & Brunei (UNGCMB). By becoming a member, it further stems the resort’s commitment to align and drive its business with Sustainable Development Goals.

“As we look back on five incredibly successful years, we are celebrating our journey as well as our dedication to giving back to the community and the environment. The Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast’s General Manager, Murray Aitken, said, “Our 5th anniversary celebrations are more than just fun; we are devoting our time to volunteer activities like “World Clean-up Day,” “Mangrove Seedlings Planting,” and nurturing our long-standing partnership with the “Breast Cancer Support Group” by empowering them with “farm-to-table” recipes created by Executive Chef Halim.

In celebration of their 5th anniversary, the resort is striking a power chord with electrifying experiences for rockstars to experience an epic stay, rockin’ eats and indulgent spa treatments for the whole month of September.
