The SkyBar of Traders Hotel at Puteri Harbour

The SkyBar (N1.41768 E103.65640) is located at the Rooftop pool deck of Traders Hotel at Puteri Harbour, Nusajaya – Johor. We were invited to the SkyBar for their opening private party on Saturday evening 12th Oct 2013. SkyBar is the trademark of Traders Hotel, have you been to the SkyBar at Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur?

The SkyBar is totally different from day time and night time…it’s a beautiful infinity swimming pool overlooking the Puteri Harbour and Straits of Johor during the day time, when the nights fall…the pool area is beautifully lighted up with the good company by your side, the feeling is simply magical!

It was about 7pm, the invited guests were walking into the SkyBar area one-by-one…foods and drinks were prepared much earlier to serve all the guests…

The small table in the pool was the fresh seafood like oysters and others…this was a special arrangement, nice!

About 120 guests from members of Singapore Sport Car Club, Exotic Car Club, AT Rider Superbikers from Johor Bahru and corporate guests attended the opening party.

The guests queue up for foods very soon just after 7pm, guess everyone can’t wait to taste the delicious cuisine prepared by the Executive Chef – Alan Wong and Food and Beverage Manager – Avraam Koutsides, Traders Hotel.

I like this special sunken corner (below) very much! It’s located next to the infinity pool, surrounded with tempered glass and the blue-lighted relax chair! Overlooking the Puteri Harbour and Straits of Johor…Awesome!

We had a glass of the ice cold beer beside the pool and started our photo shooting session…
During the music played, there was a troupe of synchronized swimmers performing in the pool followed by 4 pretty colourful mermaids! That was a surprise! Everyone was busy triggering their shutter of the cameras crazily! Haha! It was a very nice scene with the mermaids swim across and the underwater lighting…
