Amari Hotel Johor

After uncountable day trips to Johor Bahru, its finally for a staycation! I have been longing to stay in Amari Hotel after my 1st sight of the Hotel one day as I was at Komtar JBCC.

Amari Hotel Johor is conveniently located within 10 minutes walk from Singapore Immigration CIQ and of course for the shoppers, Johor Bahru City Square. This place is also ideal for a short family stay as they are located near to the Angry Bird Activity Park.

Hotel is link to Suasana Suites and Zenith Mall. The latter was not fully opened but the crowd for the few eateries as well as pubs there looked relatively decent.

Check into the hotel was smooth and easy with the assistance of staff over the counter.  The stylish designed lobby just make me feel comfortable and happy even before going into the room.

Main Lobby Area
All rooms are non smoking rooms. When I looked down out of my room, I can see the pool. Room was clean, neat and spacious. We were given 4 pillows and they were soft!

King Bed
Besides enjoying the comfort of the room, WiFi connection is pretty stable here as compared to another hotel near KSL. Other than that, there are ample of electrical sockets on their wall too.

Writing Desk
If you are looking for hard copy of TV menu, waste your time no more. Find it all in the 40 Inch LED TV with your remote control. You will get to find complimentary drinks in fridge located in the TV Console.

The toilet is bright and magnifying mirror with light will come in handy.

Vanity

Toilet Bowl
The standing shower area is spacious and come with pockets in the wall to put your toiletries.

Showering Area
Room is also thoughtfully designed with a 2-way cupboard for easy access from the bedroom and near the toilet. You can find robes, Ironing board, iron, hair dryer, bed room slippers and electronic safe in it.

Checking out the facilities in the Hotel and we went into their Library located right next to the lobby.

As our hotel stay did not include breakfast, we bought breakfast for the day over the check in counter and was told it was cheaper to do so.

Amaya
Amaya is also a signature of Amari providing local street food. Do check out the latest event by the hotel for their promotional dining. Personally, I hope to be back for their high tea.

What's after Breakfast in Amaya
The spread of breakfast was good enough considering a 5 Star Hotel. We overslept and only had half an hour before the dining place closed.

Buffet Spread
I did not take much pictures as most of the food were almost depleted and I'm rushing through my breakfast. Blame it to the hotel room that is so comfortable that we had overslept. Hahaha.

Interior of Amaya is tastefully designed in the modern classic theme. There are a few stations to pick up your breakfast. One part that caught me by surprise is that they actually have a Tea Tarik Drink Station.

While at the breakfast omelette making counter, we have Chef Andy Oh serving us.

Freshly Made Apam Balik 
Food variety ranging from Local Nasi Lemak to American Breakfast. Ta-Da, I have a bit of everything here. 

Food I took
Good standard omelette. Runny Egg wrapped with the usual ingredients and not too dry.

Omlette

Porridge
If you are searching for some body relaxation, you may want to try out their spa sessions provided in house. Ha, by walking into such walkway is already therapeutic with its welcoming air fragrance.

To Breeze Spa
To enhance your staying experience, you may want to consider having a room with direct pool access. This makes it very accessible to those who love soaking in water whenever they feel like going for a swim.

Direct Pool Access
You can also rest and relax at the Cabana right at the end of the pool. Cushions that are originally there were removed due to rain the previous night.

Being the 2nd time staying in their chained hotel, I find that the standard is above average. I will not mind staying with them for my next vacation.
