The KSL Hotel & Resort Johor Bahru is the largest integrated resort in Johor, Malaysia. It is conveniently located in the city centre, within a 5-min drive from the Causeway which links Malaysia to Singapore (Woodlands). The resort houses a hotel, numerous well-known food and beverage outlets, fashion boutiques, game arcade, cineplex, Hypermarket (Tesco) and water theme park (more details on this at the end of this post), all under one roof.
Here’s a quick photo tour of the hotel…
Entrance to hotel taken from the driveway.
Note the sign at the entrance. This is the first time I’m seeing a ban against mangosteens!
At the lobby of the hotel.
Guest rooms are located at both Towers 1 and 2 of the hotel. This is the lift lobby for Tower 1.
There is convenient access to the adjacent shopping mall via the entrance located at the hotel lobby.
Here’s a peek at the Superior room…
Complimentary bottles of water are provided during your stay.
In most rooms you can find both a Queen-size bed and a Super Single.
I love that they have a rain shower in the bathroom!
The view from the hotel window is of the Johor Bahru skyline which is pretty much uninteresting to me as I prefer nature instead of cityscapes.

It is a nice hotel and my stay was a pleasant one. The rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable and the staff are friendly. However, just note that if the hotel is running at 98% capacity and there is a conference taking place in the hotel, the wait for the lifts can be a painful experience especially during meal times as the lifts are slow to arrive and cannot take too many people else they will fail. Each tower has only 4 lifts serving the guest rooms. I stayed on the 14th floor and I remember having waited 25 minutes for the lift on one night and they were always full by the time the lift doors opened on my floor, thus I gave up and headed for the fire exit.
Unless you are on a shopping trip, there is nothing much to do in this area but I must say that it is convenient to have a shopping mall and cineplex connected to the hotel.
