    Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Johor

    The southern gateway into Singapore, Johor is one of Malaysia’s most economically successful regions. Thriving Johor Bahru (the state capital) is a city with all the trappings of a small metropolis. There’s heavy visitor traffic flowing in from Singapore and tourism has taken a back seat to economic development and as a result, hard to reach off-the-beaten path offerings have mushroomed all over.

    Swim and dive into the waters of the Seribuat Archipelago, explore the Endau Rompin National Park and climb the eponymous peak at Gunung Ledang National Park. Johor is an eminently rewarding holiday destination – accommodation options are plentiful, especially mid-range hotels, but you can also find beautiful luxury ventures and budget deals. Our favourites include Cinta Ayu at Pulai Springs Resort and Sari Pacifica Resort & Spa Sibu Island.
