Top Reasons to get married at DoubleTree by Hilton Johor Bahru

1. A Glam & Refined Wedding Venue at one of the Top Hotels in Johor Bahru


Say hello to glamour and glitz at DoubleTree by Hilton. As one of the top hotels in Johor Bahru (JB), known for its fine hospitality and warm service. Upon reaching DoubleTree, we were greeted by welcoming smiles and warm delicious cookies, which made us feel really special. #reallygotstandard

p.s When we were traveling around JB, several taxi drivers mentioned that DoubleTree by Hilton¬†is well-known to be the top hotel in JB. Welcome to the ‘atas’ side.


The entire 11th floor of DoubleTree by Hilton is dedicated to weddings and events alone, allowing you to enjoy that exclusive feel, without interruptions from other hotel guests.


Upon stepping foot into the ballroom, you are greeted with a luxurious carpeting, 7 meter high ceiling, dark wood and fabric furnishings. The Grand Ballroom also features state-of-the-art audio and visual facilities which will allow you to stream all your wedding photos and videos beautifully.

At DoubleTree, you can have the light breeze and sunny outdoors grace your wedding day. Next to the ballroom on level 11 sits an outdoor terrace for you to walk down the aisle and say the perfect ‚ÄúI Do‚ÄĚ. Another outdoor terrace lies at Tosca Restaurant. A wedding often includes your solemnization/ROM, tea ceremony, wedding reception, dinner banquet, and even next day brunch.
