Sea Horizon Resort is situated in the tranquil fishing village of Sedili Besar, towering over the magnificent cliffs overlooking the South China Sea. This ideal location is only 1.5 hours drive from Johor Snai Airport, bringing one closer to nature and closer to the heart. Drawing deep inspiration from the local culture and architecture, the resort incorporates the spirit of the seafarer into its construction, creating a “Mediterranean” beachside living experience that exudes an element of serenity and calm, a rarity in today’s fast-paced society.
01 Located on the Malaysian coastline, the project’s three 7-meter accommodation domes are nestled in pristine woodlands near the cliffs, where the designers and construction team worked together to create Malaysia’s first exclusive cliff-side luxury project. The conditions in this area posed serious maintenance and construction challenges.
02 The inexperienced team took a pragmatic approach to constructing the platform and complete drainage system to accommodate the original hotel, pool and tent camping facilities.
03 During the 4-5 years of operation, the project not only survived sea and typhoon winds, but also stagnated for 3 years, but still maintains good customer service and reviews, and a high rate of exposure on major booking platforms.

Each rock has its own unique characteristics – brightly colored and forming the perfect habitat for a variety of marine life.

- Historic Chinese Temple
This Chinese temple was built in 1948, shortly after the end of World War II, on a piece of reserved Malay land by a kind Malay gentleman living in the quiet town of Sedili Besar. This act of kindness is a reflection of the close-knit community of Sedili Besar that embraces multicultural life. Situated on a four-acre hill facing the South China Sea, the temple is said to be the perfect place for devotees of “feng shui”.

The 80-year-old fire pit was built during the Japanese occupation of World War II, according to those still alive to tell the tale. However, the purpose of the burning pit is unclear. For history buffs, the old fishing village of Sedili Besar is a short bike ride away.
Located just a stone’s throw from the Sedili Besar Jetty, this magnificent mosque is a sacred place for local Muslims to perform their daily prayers.
