ACCOR DEBUTS IN PETALING JAYA WITH IBIS PJCC


Affordability, convenience and quality. Key words Ibis PJCC would like business and leisure travellers to remember.

Opened recently in Petaling Jaya amidst the commercial and residential hub of Petaling Jaya Commercial Centre (PJCC), Ibis PJCC is easily accessible via major expressways.

Officially opened by Azrul Shah Mohamad (2nd from left), Chief Executive Officer of Tourism Selangor as the guest of honour, the event were witnessed by Suresh Nair (far left), General Manager of Ibis PJCC, Michel Vivier (2nd from right), Senior VP of Accor Hotels (Malaysia and Indonesia) and Christopher Mah (far right), Director of Luxury Alpine.
Guest of honour, Azrul Shah Mohamad (pic above), Chief Executive Officer of Tourism Selangor lauded Accor for choosing to open the 161-room Ibis PJCC in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. “It aligns perfectly with the digital trends and preferences of the younger generation; making Ibis PJCC an ideal choice for staycations and business travellers.”
Suresh Nair (pic above), General Manager of Ibis PJCC said: “We’re thrilled to open in a vibrant location with immense potential. Looking forward to playing a pivotal role within this dynamic community, the Ibis PJCC team welcomes guests to a meaningful and rewarding experience during their stay here.”

The interior is a blend of modern and functional elements: the lobby boasts soaring high ceiling with modern chandeliers, and a streamlined reception area. A laidback Lobby Bar Café serves as a welcoming haven for guests to unwind.

Comfortable and contemporary aesthetics dominate the 161 guest rooms, featuring Ibis signature Sweet Beds for a good night’s sleep. Smart TV, complimentary Wi-Fi access and minibar are also part and parcel of the in-room features.

We were impressed by the rooms, especially those outfitted to accommodate physically challenged guests: the bathroom doors are wide and wheel-chair accessible, grab bars can be found inside the toilet/bathrooms and there's even a bedside emergency button.

A swimming pool overlooking nearby city skyline, a gym and children’s playroom as well as four versatile meeting rooms are available on-site.

The hotel’s all-day dining, Ibis Kitchen, offers local and international fare. We enjoyed the modest, delicious buffet lunch laid out and found the selection palate-pleasing.

Specially curated playlists to suit different mood and performances featuring emerging musicians underscore the Ibis Music programme and the brand’s enthusiasm for live music.

SELERA SERANTAU ADDS SPICE TO NEW CINNAMON


Embark on a irresistible culinary tour of the Asian region with Selera Serantau for buka puasa at One World Hotel’s spanking new Cinnamon Coffee House.
The jaw-dropping, cavernous 600-seat restaurant welcomes diners with a floor-to-ceiling curved LED screen upon entry. Strolling down the long walkway will reveal different dining areas and live interactive kitchens; every facet stirs up a sense of wonder and excitement even before one is seated down.


External pockets of lush greenery are visible from certain parts of the dining area whilst an infusion of modern and subtle Oriental interior touches: dark marble counters, floral displays, warm spot and recessed lighting and a feature wall adorned with traditional roof tile designs add beguiling charm to the elegant and streamlined space. Food is artfully displayed and served from island counters, live action kitchens and glass showcases.

For the month of Ramadan, the Cinnamon team has gone to town with an extravagant spread of 100 local and regional delicacies based on 4 rotational menus. Whether it’s Malay, Indian, Chinese, Japanese or Continental, no picky palate is left unfulfilled.

When you break fast at Cinnamon this year, we suggest starting at the premium Seafood section: king crab legs, freshly shucked oysters, crayfish, mussels and tiger prawns. The fresh, sweet crab legs are especially noteworthy and a prized catch for buka puasa.

Heartwarming familiar favourites: Sup Tulang Rawa (beef shin bone broth with local herbs and spices), Roast Lamb and Beef, Satay, Daging Gulai Utara (Northern Malaysia beef curry), Chicken Rendang Minang, Assorted Kerabu, and festive bites of Lemang, Ketupat and Serunding beckon. 
Crowd-pleasing Chicken Rice, Lamb and Prawn Masala, and Chicken 65, Tandoori from the Chinese and Indian sections complete the Malaysian offerings.

Those with a penchant for Japanese fare will be overjoyed to find a wide selection of colourful and appetising Sashimi, Nigiri Sushi, Maki Sushi, Tempura, and Fried Tebasaki (chicken wings) to savour.

International specialities to sample include Seafood Chowder, different types of Pizza, cook-to-order Pasta, Cold Cuts and Terrines, Seafood Chowder, Cheese Board, Baked Fish with Herb Bearnaise Sauce and Lamb Cutlets with Rosemary amongst others.

It is virtually impossible to eschew the vast plethora of desserts: Malay Kuih, Baklava, Aiskrim Potong, Peanut Butter Velvet Cake, Earl Grey Mousse Cake, Pralines, French Entremets, shot glasses of Jelly with Longans, and freshly made cups of frothy Teh Tarik.


Cinnamon’s Selera Serantau is priced at RM208 nett per person once Ramadan starts. For early birds pre-booking, the buka puasa buffet is available at RM168 nett per person and RM84 per child (6-12 years old) only for reservations made before 23 March.
