The previous name was The ZON Regency. Now it's under the new management Berjaya Group. The location is nearby the ferry terminal. Can see the Singapore shoreline and the causeway from here too.
It has plenty of car parking lot but need to climb up till level 6 above for hotel guest parking area. The registration counter located on the ground floor in which once parked the car, you need to go down to check in. The front desk counter staff was a bit slow during my check in. Being informed that they were college students from Indonesia University that doing their practical training in the hotel.
The room look the same as if the last time I went there in 2005. However the room is spacious and the bed is huge and comfortable. Food served for breakfast comes with plenty of choices. However, there were so many hotel guests in which resulted the dining place is over crowd.
The hotel also have a good swimming pool with a view of the Strait of Tebrau and Singapore. It also have pool for kids. The gym equipment were satisfying and usable. I manage to have my 1 hour workout here too. The spa also have the best service for those who need to pamper themselves
The duty free mall however were a bit on the downside. Many shops were closed and not many things to buy though it is a duty/tax free zone. For those who enjoy clubbing and nightlife, there are a few nightclubs around the hotel.
