Johor Bahru joins elite

The Puteri Pacific Hotel Johor Bahru has joined hotel representation company Luxe Worldwide Hotels
as an Elite Collection member.The 500-room hotel is strategically located in the heart of the business district of Johor Bahru, the state capital of Johor, in southern Malaysia. It is also the nearest hotel to the border crossing with Singapore, located five minutes away via a land crossing. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital, is a three-hour drive away via expressway.

Cecilia Tee, Managing Director - Asia for Luxe Worldwide Hotels, said, “Luxe is delighted about this new partnership and we warmly welcome the Puteri Pacific Hotel Johor Bahru to the Luxe Elite Collection. Our regional sales offices worldwide and in particular, our Singapore regional office, is excited about working with the team at Puteri Pacific Hotel Johor Bahru to drive business from the MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) segment.”

The hotel is physically linked to the Persada Johor, one of the largest convention and exhibition centres south of Kuala Lumpur. Ms Tee is confident that the Puteri Pacific Hotel will be the accommodation of choice for trade visitors when the Persada Johor, which is ideal for mega events and shows of up to 3,000 guests, opens later in the year.

“The advent of Johor Bahru as the newest convention destination in this part of Southeast Asia makes our association with the Luxe brand even more timely. We are sure Luxe will serve us well through their connectivity to the worldwide corporate and MICE industries. We truly look forward to establishing this synergy in moving the way forward for Puteri Hotels,” said Mr John Roozemond, Managing Director of Puteri Hotels.
