DoubleTree by Hilton
12 Jalan Ngee Heng, Johor Bahru (07 268 6868/doubletree3.hilton.com). DoubleTree by Hilton has raised the bar of JB’s accommodation options. The hotel offers one of the most extensive breakfast spreads we’ve ever seen in addition to a fitness centre that’s open round-the-clock. Families are well-catered for with a wide range of amenities to make your stay more pleasant; If your little one is enamoured with horses and ponies and won’t stop begging you for one, plan a family trip to Riders Lodge. Your child is bound to cherish the memory of staying in the 27-room mansion and taking horseback riding lessons. Agnes Café, a fine dining restaurant on the premises, dishes out delicious meals that can be tailored to fit special diets. There’s also a massage parlour onsite if the knots in your back need kneading.
