Finally, we had a weekend off for ourselves after all our endless work. I planned a surprise staycation for him at The Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru.
The Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru is conveniently located on heritage row of Jalan Trus, just a few minutes away from City Square Johor Bahru as well as the Jalan Tan Hiok Nee Culture street where you can do your cafe hopping. The Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) at the causeway to Singapore are also within walking distance.
I booked a 2D1N staycation at their dulex room on the Executive floor with breakfast at Agoda.com for $122.44.
As we entered into the hotel, we were greeted the newly renovated lobby.
Since we had booked a dulex room on the Executive floor, our check in was done at their Sky lounge instead of the reception at the main lobby. I love the exclusive customer service for the guests staying at the Executive floor. The check in was very fast and smooth.
I am so excited to view the room. The Executive floor is located at the 15th floor of the hotel.
The modern yet classy spacious room made us fall in love with it immediately. The room was decorated with dark wood furniture and red cushioned chairs. The layout and interior of the room was well thought.
They had a small remote board beside the bed for you to control the lighting as well as the air condition temperature instead of walking up and down the room.
They had a full length mirror at the corner for the room which not all hotel have. Perfect for couple shoot or OOTD.
The combination of the working desk and dressing table was brilliant as it satisfy both of our need.
We not only had a spacious room, we had a spacious and well equipped bath room too.
They had separated the bath tub and the shower area. I love their concept of having a 3 fold mirror too.
We were very satisfy with our room but there were more surprises coming our way.
We are able to enjoy the street view of Jalan Trus and overlook to Singapore. The sky was kind of gloomy after the rain.
We also receive an complimentary small fruit basket from the hotel.
After resting, we decided to check out the Pacific Sky Lounge on the 16th floor. You are able to get a panorama view of Johor Sentral.
While we are exploring around, we was told that we could stay for the complimentary pre-dinner cocktail that will be ready in a few minutes.
I headed for the desserts without thinking. I did not expect that the chocolate cake to be so delicious. The cake was very rich and firm, every spoonful of cake was so chocolatey. As much as I wanted another slice of it, I decided to check out other food.
They provide various finger food like pizzas, seafood toufu, spring rolls etc. As well as canapes.
We felt that the variety of food were pretty decent for a pre dinner cocktail. We continue heading out for our dinner at City Square Mall.
Other then the pre-dinner cocktail, we get to also enjoy the complimentary all day coffee/tea and soft drinks at Pacific Sky Lounge from 7am to 11pm.
Night view from our room
Happy moments usually passes the fastest, as much as we don’t wish to, its almost time to say good bye to the room.
Not forgetting about our breakfast. As an executive floor guest, we get to enjoy our breakfast buffet at the Pacific Sky Lounge.
I was so happy when I saw yogurt and immediate grab one before I start eating my breakfast.
The breakfast spread also consist of Nasi Lemak and Fried Noodles which he like. However, I felt that they should have more complementing dishes to go along with the Nasi Lemark and Fried Noodles.
They do also provide plain porridge with various condiments like salted egg, salted radish, ikan bilis and peanuts.
I made a breakfast platter for myself too.
As I was talking to him about they not having any egg station for me to complete my breakfast platter. The hotel staff approached us and ask for our egg order.
Apparently, you can order the kind of eggs you will like from the staff and they will freshly prepared them in the kitchen.
My perfectly done sunny side up which came along with hashbrown and grilled tomato.
He ordered Egg Omelette and it came with hash brown and grilled tomato too. The Egg Omelette was really good with the outer layer well done as yet keeping the moist and softness from the inner.
If you are staying at the Executive floor, you get to enjoy Late check-out till 3pm. However, due to high volume of guest on that day, we advanced our checkout time to 1pm.
Some other privelige as a guest from the Executive floor are
- Complimentary mini-bar items in the room
- Daily local newspaper
- Compliementary use of Fitness Center facilities except massage and beauty/spa services
- Complimentary 2 pieces laundry per night stay (Non accumulative & not applicable to dry clean)
- Complimentary parking
In conclusion, we really love the service and had enjoy our stay with Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru. One thing which we think that they should improve on is their wireless connectivity. We kept facing difficulties in connecting and get disconnected very easily in our room.
