Amari Opens First Hotel in Malaysia

Onyx Hospitality has opened the first Amari hotel in Malaysia.

 The 242-room Amari Johor Bahru 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 is also in close proximity to JB's heritage district, museums, cafes, traditional bakeries and various local restaurants.

Douglas Martell, Chief Executive Officer, Onyx Hospitality Group, said, “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.”

Guest rooms at the Amari Johor Bahru feature 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 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.

“We are confident that Amari Johor Bahru will be very well received in the region by both business and leisure travellers. While addressing the needs of the increasing number of tourists arriving in Johor Bahru, this hotel will also have every modern facility required by the business traveller,” said Wayne Lunt, General Manager, Amari Johor Bahru. “The property’s location could not be more perfect, literally in the heart of the city, only few minutes stroll from all shops, the old heritage quarter, ethnic restaurants, the trendy café scene and the border to Singapore.”
