The closure of the Mutiara Hotel Johor Bahu in the state capital of Malaysia has been on the cards for quite some time. In December, rumours of a hotel shutdown circulated in the JB community. While there are a number of reasons for the closure, the most common reason is the long-term impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, which affected the state’s tourism industry.
The MUTIARA Johor Bahru features a central location, just opposite the Holiday Plaza. It is also a short distance to major shopping and entertainment complexes in the city. Guests can make use of the hotel’s free WiFi, and there’s a 24-hour front desk to help them plan their days. The hotel offers a free breakfast buffet and is well-known for its social responsibility projects, including its free newspaper and business center.
With the establishment of a heart of gold restaurant, the Mutiara Hotel Johor Bahu has long been a favourite dining spot in the city. The hotel is air-conditioned and equipped with lifts for easy access. In-house facilities include a hairdressing salon, conference facilities, laundry service, and a restaurant. The rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished, and each one has its own private balcony or terrace.
