It comes as no surprise that DoubleTree by Hilton Johor Bahru is one of the top picks for business travelers and meeting professionals. Here are five reasons why:

      1. Strategic location – Ideally located in the Central Business District and within walking distance of the Persada Convention Center, the contemporary hotel boasts of a sweeping view of the city and Straits of Johor. For those traveling from Singapore, Changi and Senai International Airports are conveniently reachable to and from the hotel.
      2. Impeccable food – Tosca, the hotel’s in-house Italian poolside restaurant was rated No.1 on Trip Advisor, and for good reason. The trattoria-style restaurant serves authentic Italian cuisine prepared with a contemporary flair such as wood-fired specialties, an antipasto table with cured meats, canapés, assorted bread, and various cheeses, and homemade gelato. For a taste of the local flavor, Makan Kitchen is able to cater up to 350 persons, perfect for team gatherings.
      3. Hub for team activities – A city rife with a multitude of theme parks and adventure camps, Johor Bahru is now one of the fastest-growing, which means there will be no shortage of team-building activities to be done here such as a sightseeing day to visit the Hakka Heritage Gallery and Istana Bukit Serene, the official palace of the Sultan of Johor; a hike and swim at the Pulai Waterfall to foster better team camaraderie; a day of rides at Legoland to remember the importance of unwinding and having fun.
      4. Outstanding facilities – The hotel offers state-of-the-art conferencing facilities with 13,993 sq. ft. of event space, including two divisible ballrooms, five meeting rooms, and an outdoor terrace. Together with experienced and attentive team members, each detail will be taken care of and catered to. Along with Meet with Purpose, a Hilton initiative that incorporates sustainable practices, nutritious menus, and mindful breaks, business meetings have never been more engaging for delegates.
      5. Competitive pricing – The new DoubleTree by Hilton Johor Bahru meeting package is now available with room rates from SGD97 per delegate and full-day meeting packages from SGD45.
