JOHOR BAHRU, MALAYSIA--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2015) -  When the Malaysian government set out to more than double its 1.3 million business visitors by 2020, leaders knew the country had many things to recommend it, from museums and shopping, to historical sites and dining. But its trump card is the Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel. This new property sits in the crosshairs of Pasir Gudang's largest industrial zone and enjoys easy access to Singapore. But it's the sophisticated meeting venues, opulent accommodations and top-notch amenities that make the hotel near Danga Bay the perfect place to both work and play.

Offering groups 11 flexible meeting rooms -- including the 800-person Grand Ballroom -- the hotel's nearly 23,000 square feet of function space can accommodate everything from board meetings to large conferences. And it does so efficiently. Groups can expect state-of-the-art technology at this Johor Bahru business hotel for optimal productivity. Built-in and portable sound systems, projectors, four projector screens, 40-inch LCD televisions and, in the Executive Boardroom, a 60-inch LCD television with live-recording camera capabilities are just a few of the features on-hand.

While technology ensures delegates don't miss a beat of the meeting, the sophisticated design provides plenty of inspiration. Rich woods, warm grays and modern light fixtures create inviting spaces in which to gather, while soft jazz and refreshing aromatherapy transport guests away from everyday stresses. And when delegates need a change of scenery, they can head to the second-floor's living room area. The first of its kind in Johor Bahru, this space features the barista-style coffee, fresh juices and sweet and savory bites to provide just the right jolt of energy.

Just as important as style is service, and this hotel near Danga Bay in Johor Bahru has groups covered. Its REN Meeting Experts provide round-the-clock service for seamless events, starting with the booking process. Meeting planners who book between 30 and 50 room nights receive their choice of one reward, while those confirming more than 51 room nights receive up to three rewards. (The selection of rewards includes perks like a one-hour cocktail reception, a signature massage treatment, room upgrades and more.)

Guests, meanwhile, enjoy all the advantages of a world-class destination during their downtime. Lavish guest rooms, three acclaimed restaurants, a sparkling outdoor pool and easy access to the city's best attractions make this 5-star property feel like a vacation even when visitors are working.
