ONYX Hospitality Group, one of Asias leading hotel management companies, has launched its brand-new Amari Johor Bahru in Malaysia’s southern gateway city. The 242-room Amari Johor Bahru, located in the heart of the city, is ONYX Hospitality Group’s first foray into the Malaysian market.
The new city centre hotel is surrounded by the Persada Convention Centre, Komtar JBCC and City Square shopping malls, a short walk to JB Sentral and the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex, and the upcoming Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system which will link Johor Bahru and Singapore. Amari Johor Bahru is only a 30-minute drive from Senai International Airport, around an 80-minute drive from Singapore’s Changi Airport and also offers close proximity to the heritage district, museums, cafes, traditional bakeries and various local restaurants.
“As ONYX Hospitality Group continues to expand its presence in the Asia-Pacific region, the opening of Amari Johor Bahru demonstrates the growing regional appeal of our portfolio of brands,” said Douglas Martell, Chief Executive Officer, ONYX Hospitality Group. “Amari Johor Bahru has been designed in response to market demands and trends, as tourism in Johor Bahru is currently undergoing a major transformation. This opening will pave the way for the upcoming OZO Medini and Shama Medini at the UM Medini City Lakeside Complex in the nearby Iskandar area, also developed in partnership with UMLand.”
Originally from Thailand and expanding across Asia, Amari has a rich and long-standing heritage. It celebrates the colours and rhythms of modern Asia with each hotel highlighting the textures and flavours of its unique setting through architecture, design, cuisine and service.
Guest rooms at this property are appointed with highlights such as spa-inspired bathrooms, dual-frontage wardrobes, generous storage for shopping finds and ergonomic work stations. To complement a wide variety of room and suite configurations, the hotel also offers six unique Deluxe Pool Access rooms with private terraces, a first for any downtown Johor Bahru hotel. Standard in-room features and amenities include complimentary internet and Wi-Fi, interactive TV, USB connection and international power panels and a minibar with coffee/tea making facilities.
