Renaissance Hotel opens in Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Renaissance Hotels, a lifestyle brand within the Marriott International portfolio, opened its newest property in Malaysia with the inauguration of the Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel. The opening of the new Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel marks the seventh Marriott International hotel to open in Malaysia.

The 345-room hotel offers a variety of room categories, all equipped with modern amenities including 42-inch flat screen televisions with satellite channel access. The hotel’s four restaurants and bars include Café BLD for all-day dining; Wan Li Restaurant for contemporary Cantonese cuisine; The Chocolate Cake Company featuring the hotel’s own freshly baked cakes, breads and pastries; and the R-Bar, a lobby bar offering exclusive RLife LIVE entertainment. For leisure and relaxation, the hotel includes an outdoor swimming pool and fitness center, while for those visiting for meetings, the hotel has seven flexible rooms.

The Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel is located in the township of Permas Jaya, close to the city center of Johor Bahru and a short drive from the Eastern Dispersal Link leading directly to the CIQ to Singapore, and North South Highway, leading to the rest of Malaysia. The hotel is also situated close to the port and industrial area of Pasir Gudang.

Renaissance Hotels aim to inspire travel experiences through guest programs including Navigator, the brand’s signature concierge service, and RLife LIVE, an entertainment platform showcasing music and arts at Renaissance Hotels around the world. Last year, Renaissance Hotels launched its first ever global advertising campaign, Live Life to Discover, inspiring guests to discover something new whenever they travel for business or leisure.
