Meeting in the Sky at Capri by Fraser, Johor Bahru

Meeting in the Sky at Capri by Fraser, Johor Bahru | Visiting the new Capri by Fraser Hotel Residences, Johor Bahru / Malaysia, soft opening yesterday was very exciting. As I was invited by my blogger friend, Ain, to be her partner, I did not miss the chance to see how the new hotel looks like.

To describe the hotel location, are you familiar with Petronas Station, Jalan Storey? Or Gerai MFR which is known for its roti canai down the road just behind the Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration & Quarantine (CIQ) Complex? Yes, now you are getting closer. Capri by Fraser, Johor Bahru / Malaysia, located at Johor Bahru’s downtown core of Bukit Chagar, standing high within Tri Tower Residence, Johor Bahru. At first, you may get confused while searching for the hotel's carpark, but rest assured because the two towers and the hotel are sharing the carparks together. Just search for red lots which are provided specially for hotel guests.

Once we took the lift and reached the hotel lobby at the UG level, the interior started to captivate our eyes. The lobby's wall was covered with a greenish broccoli-look-alike thing. When we asked Haszlee, the Marcom Manager, he said that it was (of course not broccoli) a combination of real plants which were then preserved before mounted on the wall. If you come here to check in your stay, you will notice a big pillar in front of the reception counters with a few wooden blocks surrounding it from the ceiling above, which represents a tree.

Looks artistic, isn't it? Pic: Sis Lin

Capri by Fraser, Johor Bahru / Malaysia is offering a design-led, art- and innovation-centric social living experience catering to the digitally savvy traveller, whether travelling to the city on business or for leisure, solo or in larger groups. With 316 units of fully-furnished studios and one-bedroom apartments, some with stunning sea views, it is the perfect solution for short and long stays.

What interests me the most was the meetings and conferences facilities located at level 40 and 41. Named as Pod 1, 2, 3 and 4, the meeting/function rooms are overlooking the cityscape of Johor. You can easily check the traffic at the interconnection of Johor Bahru CIQ Complex and Woodlands Checkpoint from these two levels before deciding to cross the border or not. Haha.

Ok, let's get back on the track. Imagine conducting a meeting with your business group in the sky, while enjoying the panoramic view of Tebrau Strait. It will be very soothing and calming, especially the moment when everyone could not come out with the most rightful decision. Take 5 - 10 minutes break to relieve the stress situation. Haven't you heard that it is important to recognize when to relax or simply take a breather when frustrated, overwhelmed or anxious?

It is said that the serviced residence’s meeting halls are easily configurable to create various layouts from small meetings, seminars, and private functions to full MICE set-ups for events, exhibitions, dinners, and weddings. The meeting halls can cater from intimate parties of 20 persons to larger scale events of 600 persons.

At Capri by Fraser, Johor Bahru / Malaysia, guests also can enjoy an array of entertainment, shopping, dining and various attractions including a lively café scene and the heritage quarter with City Square Mall, Komtar JBCC, Galleria@Kotaraya, and PERSADA Convention Centre within walking distance. The serviced residence also comes equipped with Capri by Fraser’s signature Spin & Play facility where guests can keep themselves entertained with video games while doing laundry.

As I mentioned above, Capri by Fraser, Johor Bahru / Malaysia, is just minutes away from the Johor Bahru CIQ Complex, right at Singapore’s doorstep. It is well-served by a network of transportation facilities at Johor Bahru Sentral, an integrated transport hub with intercity buses and trains as well as located near the future Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link, where commuters can transfer between Johor Bahru and Woodlands in just five minutes.

Another recent addition is Fraser Place Puteri Harbour, Johor, a 25-storey serviced residence and also part of an iconic mixed-used development, that overlooks the tranquil Puteri Harbour Marina, standing out with its distinct nautical-themed interior design. You may find out more about it and sneak peek of the Capri by Fraser, Johor Bahru / Malaysia rooms here.
