Sea Horizon Resort in Kota Tinggi, Johor


Living in a post-lockdown era can be stressful. Though we’re no longer cooped up in our homes for long periods of time, we’re back to dealing with the hustle and bustle of work life, and traffic jams again. So picture this – a night under the stars by the sea, without giving up the comforts of a hotel stay.

Enter Sea Horizon Resort, a luxe glamping resort tucked away in a fishing village at Kota Tinggi, Johor. Here, you can recharge your batteries in comfortable bubble dome tents with breathtaking sea views from bed.

Sure, staying in a luxe hotel may sound like a staycation we all need. But for a nature-filled resort to unwind with the fam or friends, check out Sea Horizon Resort. 

Their dome-shaped tents are ideal for urbanites seeking a comfortable contact with nature. Each room features comfy beds with duvets, air conditioning, and bathrooms – a step up from your typical camping experience, which has minimal amenities.

The dome-shaped tent has a large window with spectacular unobstructed sea views. It’s also wide and tall enough, so hotel guests can stargaze and moon-watch at night from the comfort of their suite.
