    Johor Baru  – Renaissance Hotels, a lifestyle brand within the Marriott International portfolio, celebrated the opening of its newest gem in Malaysia recently with the inauguration of the Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel, officiated by the Tunku Temenggong Johor, Y.A.M Tunku Idris Iskandar Ibni Sultan Ibrahim.

    “The opening of the spectacular new Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel marks the seventh Marriott International hotel to open in Malaysia,” said Don Cleary, Marriott International’s COO in Asia. “Renaissance Hotels is a brand known around the world for inspiring its guests to discover something wonderfully new every time they travel. We are thrilled to introduce this new hotel to the dynamic Iskandar Development Region.”

    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 sophisticated lobby bar offering exclusive RLife LIVE entertainment.

    For leisure and relaxation, the hotel features an outdoor swimming pool and fitness center, while for those visiting for meetings, the hotel boasts seven flexible rooms packed full of state-of-the-art technology and plentiful natural daylight.

    The Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel is located in the township of Permas Jaya, close to the city centre 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 perfectly situated close to the port and industrial area of Pasir Gudang.

    • Connecting you with the world of travel and tourism

      What they say

      Tourism is a people’s sector. One in 10 people in the world are directly or indirectly employed by tourism. Ours is the responsibility to ensure that tourism benefits each and every community, leaving no one behind.
      Tourism’s sustained growth brings immense opportunities for economic welfare and development. Yet, it also brings in many challenges. Adapting our sector to the challenges of safety and security, to constant market changes, to digitalization and the limits of our natural resources should be priorities in our common action.
      As we move towards a future guided by the universal 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), I take upon me to lead UNWTO with a strong focus on building partnerships with public and private sector, fostering jobs and opportunities for all, mastering technology and innovation and advancing sustainability and the fight against climate change.
      I trust that, together with our Member States and our partners from around the world, we can build a more competitive and responsible tourism sector for the benefit of all. I wish you a very happy 2018.
