Johor Trip | Thistle Hotel

Johor is coming up as most of you might know, the government is making Johor Bahru 'The State' to live in with Lego Land and many other stuff planned for the state. My friend, a journalist from The Expat magazine was sent a few places in Johor for an article piece. Me, were just there to accompany her journey.

On our first day, we travelled 4 hours to Thistle Hotel in Johor Bahru. This tall beautiful building is so close to Singapore that you can see them from their Thistle Club Lounge. This well designed and architecture hotel made the place feels like a resort. Service was amazing and efficient, food was impeccable. Trust me, if you in any way are around that area, to just stop by for their RIBS, ai-ma-mi, it's like was sent from heaven.

We had lunch... Small eater wanted to try everything
Generally, their food is really good.

This is "THE" chilli/sambal to go for in Johor. 
Eat it with pisang goreng and everything else. 


Lego land coming soon.



 Pictures below are us having a working/break time in the lounge, customers who are staying in a certain type of rooms are able to enjoy this free facilities. You can even have breakfast here. 





Great band!

This is THE RIBS to die for!

Pictures below were when we had our breakfast in the lounge

Loved their pancakes

and croissant. 

Pictures below were the time we had our spa treatments
Great massage, painful though.






Overall, I seriously rate Thistle 10/10 because everything was just great there! I felt like a princess being pampered and tummy bloated after spending 2 nights there. Especially expats on business will love to stay in Thistle whether alone or with the whole family!
It is bit pricey but worth it if you need an escape within the city. Even if you can afford the hotel, just stopping by for a dinner with your loved once is a must!


Next up, we drove to another location.... coming soon!
