Shama Suasana Johor Bahru unveils a new chapter announcing the official rebranding from Suasana Suites Johor Bahru. This exciting transformation marks a new era of exceptional hospitality in the heart of vibrant Johor Bahru.

Shama Suasana Johor Bahru’s relaunch ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mr. Mohamad Iqbal ( UMLand Head of Asset Management & Business Development), Mr. Syed Ali ( Shama Suasana’s Executive Assistant Manager) and Mr. Liew Chee Young (SCM Property Management’s Deputy Senior Manager)

Effective July, the esteemed Shama brand will be introduced to Malaysia. Shama Suasana Johor Bahru will elevate the accommodation landscape with stylish, contemporary serviced apartments, designed to be your cosy homely haven. Perfectly situated for uncovering hidden charms, its location allows one to explore the city’s unique offerings. Whether for business travelers or adventurers, Shama Suasana Johor Bahru aspires to be a trusted sanctuary, offering a comfortable and reliable haven for visitors to Malaysia.

Shama Suasana Johor Bahru, strategically located adjacent to the Zenith Lifestyle Centre, and across KOMTAR JBCC and City Square Johor Bahru, offers guests the ‘Freedom to Explore’ aligned with the Shama brand’s tagline – with easy access to shopping malls, department stores, and the Johor Bahru Heritage Trail. This prime location is ideal for both business and leisure travelers as well as short and long stay guests.

Exceptional Amenities and Services

The hotel features 87 elegantly designed suites equipped with modern amenities, spacious living areas, and fully equipped kitchenettes. Guests can also enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness center and a refreshing swimming pool.

Shama Suasana Johor Bahru marks the second collaboration between ONYX Hospitality Group and UMLand, following the successful launch of the five-star Amari Johor Bahru in 2017. This achievement is particularly significant as it makes Malaysia the first country outside of Thailand to host all three ONYX brands: Amari, OZO, and Shama.

Commitment to Excellence

Syed Ali Syed Othman, Executive Assistant Manager of Shama Suasana Johor Bahru, stated, “This rebranding reflects our dedication to creating a sophisticated living environment that meets the needs of visitors to Johor Bahru. We are committed to delivering unmatched comfort and convenience to our guests.”
