The Traders Hotel (N1.41773 E103.65641) is located next to the Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park at Nusajaya, Johor. The hotel was just started operation in the year 2013 which only few months ago…
There is a highway connected to the Second Link and North South Expressway to the location, so there shouldn’t be any problem if you drive from the north or even coming from our neighbor country – Singapore. (you can refer from the G map below)
“The mid-market Traders brand, managed by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, cater to today’s savvy and passionate traveler with brilliant simplicity and warm sincerity. They provide a friendly yet professional environment designed to complement guests at work, rest and play.
In 1989 the first Traders Hotel opened in Beijing to complement Shangri-La’s China World Hotel. Building on Traders Hotel, Beijing’s success, today there are 15 Traders hotels in operation, with a scheduled opening in Doha Qatar.“
We were having our 2 days 1 night city escape trip in the hotel on one of the weekend during this school holiday.
The hotel provided 2 storey of basement parking and limited parking at the front of the hotel. The lobby is situated on the 1st floor and the whole lobby is decorated by the nature theme of ocean. You can see the shape of waves are decorated everywhere included the lighting, reception counter and the sofa for the guests. The carpet is pepper stone design in the wave shape too, and if you notice one of the wall paper is in blue color that represent the ocean…
This lobby is special!
We were invited politely to the Lobby Lounge by the women at the counter while waiting for our room checking…impressed.
The Lobby Lounge
The lounge is just located next to the lobby and it was a relax and comfort place to have a drinks or enjoy your favorite coffee. The lounge is having a simple and yet relax design, it’ll be a good area for a tea break with your friends or clients.

I was surprised when the staff brought over their iPad for my signature to check in the room, and I found out later that the hotel is practice in the paperless concept to “Protect and save the Earth”! There will be no paper during your check-in and check-out, if you insist on the receipt while check out, the management will email it to you. Amazing and I like it very much!
This was the first hotel within Johor I came across practicing this ‘green’ concept. Excellent!
Let me bring you for a virtual tour around the hotel before the rooms…
The function rooms are located at the 4th floor (which also the top floor) of the building 1, and we walked passed the main ballroom…
The decoration of the ballroom is mainly about wood, and we saw some interesting ‘Batik’ wood craft decor in the room…
There’s also a VIP waiting room situated at the lift lobby of the 4th floor, provided for those who are waiting for the event.
Walk across the sky-bridge to the building 2, the roof top garden is perfect relax area for guests and you can capture the breathtaking view of the Puteri Harbour.
At the left side of the roof top garden, there’s the Traders Club Lounge exclusive for VIP guests. It’s the place for VIP guests to meet and dine their clients who visit them. There’s also a meeting room in the Traders Club Lounge where the guests to held a discussion with their customers.
Once you step into the lounge, you’ll see rows of comfort sitting area…where you can having a chat or reading your favorite books…
The lounge designed a full grass on the other side that makes a nice view of the Puteri Harbour.
The dining area is located next after the relax area…
All the decorations are based on nature and fishermen. If you notice the walls are decorated like the fishing net and the main attractive area is the foods area. There are many different type of fishes hanging on top and there are beautiful! Nice!
You will have a option to choose a privacy dining area which is separated. The fishing net deco are more clearer at this corner…
The harbour view meeting room has all the basic facility such as fax machine, printer, internet access and etc.
On the right of the Roof top garden is the health and fitness center.
It’s definitely a nice place for gym because it has a nice harbour view from the glasses…
The health center will be start operating soon in the months later…
After walk through the fitness center, another sky bridge connected from building 2 to 3. I like this well designed bridge very much! The Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park is on my right and the Puteri Harbour is on my left. I cross it many times…:)
On the other side of the bridge, we reached the infinity swimming pool and the SkyBar of Traders Hotel.
There are children pool, jacuzzi pool and a big pool overview the scenic view of the harbour, coastal of Johor, Straits of Johor and partial of Singapore.
You even can enjoy a few mugs of ice cold beer or your favorite cocktail in the SkyBar (just open not too long ago) just next to the swimming pool…the SkyBar is a total new concept that you can refer to my previous post.
Among all the area in Traders Hotel, I like this view (below) very much! Standing on the bridge connected building to building overview the Little Red Cube below…(I snapped more than 30 photos just about this view…)
Me and my family had awesome breakaway on the 2 days 1 night city escape! We all love the hotel and the surrounding very much! I over heard the conversation between my wife and my daughter said…they want to come here and stay always…:)
Below photo was one of the wood (tree) decor I like, it located at the forth floor of the building 2.
Please visit their official website (below) for the rooms rate. Their rates are different that depends on the earliest booking, means if you book early you’ll get a better rate!
I’ll continue the room that we stayed and other type of room available on my next post, that will also include the delicious meal that we enjoy in the hotel. Not to forget the Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park too. So stay tune!
