If you’ve been keeping track of our social media, The Iskandarian was invited to experience the five-star treatment at Renaissance Johor Bahru (JB) Hotel and we promised to share with you our intimate perspective on the “enlightening” pleasures offered at the hotel.
Strategically located between the vibrant city of Johor Bahru and the industrial port of Pasir Gudang, Renaissance JB Hotel is the jewel of fine living in Permas Jaya. Currently, being the only international five-star hotel in the city, Renaissance JB Hotel is a business hotel that is perfect for corporate and long stays, meetings, conferences, and weddings, aside from the patrons who check in for leisurely holidays. Renaissance JB Hotel is within walking distance to AEON Permas Jaya and to other surrounding entertainment, business, and shopping areas.
Offering 345 rooms which consists of the Deluxe and Deluxe Bayview rooms, Pool Terrace Rooms, Junior Suites, and the Presidential Suites, guests can indulge in different experiences every time they check-in at Renaissance JB Hotel. Each room is equipped with a minibar, 42-inch flat screen satellite TV, telephone, in-room safe, and a one-push-button DTS (delighted to Serve) for customised requests.
Guests can also elevate their stay with a Club Level room to enjoy access to the exclusive Executive Lounge. Enjoy leisure facilities like the pool, 24-hour fitness centre as well as the sauna.
As soon as we arrived at the hotel lobby, we were greeted with positive vibes and humble hospitality by the whole bunch of hotel staff there which included the valet officers and security personnel at the entrance, and the front desk staff.
Upon checking in, we were brought to our designated room to drop our luggage and to take a breather while waiting for the first agenda of the day, which is a complete tour of the hotel itself. While heading up to our Club Level room at level 12 (Executive Club levels are from level 12 to 16), we noticed that our keycards were part of the value added services that you can enjoy at the hotel.
The high-end security measure equipped in our keycard ensures us that we can only access the level that we have checked-in to and the public amenities offered at the hotel such as the pool, fitness centre, sauna, and spa area at level 6. Executive Club levels allow guests to access the Executive Lounge at level 16.
Right after settling down, we received a knock on the door by a member of the hotel staff with the widest of smiles, bringing a tray of sweet desserts for us. Just before heading out, we “basted” our pallets with the sweet stuff which made us smile from ear-to-ear.
We were first brought to the Executive Club Lounge to experience the exclusiveness first-hand. Open every day from 6am to 10.30pm, the club lounge offers a high level of personalised services while relaxing to the breathtaking views. It was mentioned by the hotel staff that the sunrise and sunset view at the club lounge level can be so mesmerising, but unfortunately, we missed it due to cloudy weather.
Stay tuned for the next part in our upcoming issue!
