The Renaissance Hotel Johor Bahru - Rooms and Facilities

King bed

The Renaissance Johor Bahru is where we spent Jolie's birthday. It's five-star, it's elegant, and it's still got that clean new hotel feel. The hotel is between the city centre (about 15 minutes drive from the Causeway) and the busy trading port of Pasir Gudang. So it gets both families as well as the business crowd.

We had the junior suite and adjoining twin room. Let me show you the rest of the rooms.

Twin room Deluxe
The regular guest rooms come with King beds (first photo) or twin beds (above).

Twin Room
They are pretty spacious at 34sqm/366sqft to 36sqm/387sqft for regular rooms.

The bay view
You can also choose rooms with a bay view.

Nice, clean, contemporary bathrooms with Tokyo Milk toiletries. Regular rooms have showers, not tubs.

Bathroom - bay view room
Some of them have peek-a-boo windows.

The lap pool
The pool is on the sixth floor. There's a lap pool and a smaller round shallow pool for kids.

Pool Terrace Room
The Pool Terrace Rooms open right out to the pool.

Pool Terrace Room bedroom
The bedroom offers cool and cosy respite after a day's worth of tanning.

Pool terrace room bath area
The ensuite bath is lovely. Only three types of rooms have bath tubs - Pool Terrace, Junior Suite and the Presidential Suite.

Living and dining area in Presidential Suite
And this is what the Presidential Suite looks like. It goes for RM5,000 a night, and has been booked several times already.

Living Room of Presidential Suite
The Renaissance also gets film and TV crew doing shoots.

What a view from the balcony
Another perk - the gorgeous coastline view from the high-floor balcony.

Business and meeting area in the Presidential Suite
A small nook next to the balcony serves as a business or work area.

Bar and kitchen area in the Presidential Suite
There is a dedicated bar and kitchen area in the Presidential Suite.

The bedroom in the Presidential Suite with see-through bathroom
It's a one-bedroom suite, with a gorgeous bathroom.

Living area of the bedroom in the Presidential Suite
The bedroom itself has a mini living area, and walk-in closet.

Gym at Renaissance JB
Also on the sixth floor is a well-equipped gym.

Locker and Sauna rooms
The locker room and sauna are nearby as well.

Grand ballroom
The grand ballroom has seating capacity for 800, expandable to accommodate 1,100 when the outer areas are included. It's one of the biggest in Johor Bahru. Can you say wedding banquet?

Second floor conference area
The business and conference facilities are also on the second floor across from the huge ballroom.

There's a cafe-like atmosphere, and they even have two working ovens here that make the place smell great with bakes
They deliberately made it cosy and cafe-like. There are even two functioning ovens that churn out delicious bakes and make the place smell even more welcoming.

Business meeting room
There are a total of 11 meeting rooms. Some of which have huge windows and natural light. But you might need to draw them at times for presentations.

The grand lobby takes up more than two floors in height.

Next up, I'll show you their fine-dining Chinese restaurant Wan Li, which serves pretty good mod Chinese food that's been inspected as suitable for Muslim consumption (they just can't have the halal certification because they serve liquor).

No. 2, Jalan Permas 11,

81750 Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Many thanks to Renaissance Johor Bahru for the stay and hotel inspection
