JOHOR BAHRU, MALAYSIA--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2015) - Couples planning weddings in Johor Bahru have one more thing to celebrate these days. Besides having found Mr. or Miss Right, engaged couples are discovering the perfect place to hold their ceremonies and receptions: the Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel. As the premier event venue in Johor Bahru, this hotel combines its stunning indoor and outdoor spaces with an events team as familiar with Indian and Chinese weddings as Malay events, resulting in experiences that are both authentic and unforgettable.

Just as this hotel welcomes guests to luxuriously understated hotel rooms in Johor Bahru, its event spaces feel at once luxe yet minimalist. Couples have their choice of more than 24,000 square feet of event space where rich woods, modern light fixtures and a neutral color palette create a sophisticated backdrop. The most spectacular of these is the Grand Ballroom, which is one the biggest ballrooms in town and accommodates up to 90 tables or 1000 guests. Here, newlyweds enjoy a secluded location with an elegantly relaxed ambience.

Couples who prefer a more intimate setting with a Chinese influence can treat family and friends to a reception dinner at the hotel's Wan-Li Chinese Restaurant. Specializing in contemporary Cantonese cuisine, Wan-Li can accommodate up to 19 tables in its refined dining room where tradition and sophistication unite. Price starts from RM1188.00 per table.

For a casually chic setting, couples can book the hotel's other notable Johor Bahru event venue: the sixth-floor pool. This outdoor space accommodates up to 15 tables or, for a stand-up cocktail event, 150 people with just RM158.00 per person. The fresh air, gently lapping water and aisle strewn with tropical flowers all combine for a glamorous sense of romance.

No matter which space a couple selects, they can make it truly theirs during their ceremony, thanks to the expert attention of the hotel's wedding coordinators. Couples can customize the décor to their preference, whether they want a stylish and modern ceremony, or a traditional Malay, Indian or Chinese wedding.

The Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel Marriott Certified Wedding Planner, Mary Chiong, and her diverse team understand that Indian weddings are known for their great splendor with elaborate rituals and traditions. In the joyous celebration with its opulence and tradition so vividly observed -- style and elegance are integral parts of celebrations. It is ranged from RM950.00 per table.

The hotel makes a point of accommodating any ethnic tradition, whether that involves facilitating the pre- and post-wedding rituals of Indian ceremonies, creating lavish Chinese banquets or ensuring that a bride and groom walk down the aisle to the beat of the kompang tambourine after the colorful bunga manggar in a traditional Malay ceremony. Malay weddings are priced from RM950.00 per table.

Such versatility, style and expertise promise to make the biggest day of a couple's life together one that everyone remembers.

Stand a chance to walk away with a 4 days and 3 nights romantic stay at Renaissance Ratchaprasong Bangkok, JW Marriott Jakarta and newly opened Mulu Marriott Resort and Spa in Sarawak when you sign up for your wedding beginning May 2015.
