Thistle JB Hotel’s brand-new Orchid Ballroom seats up to 1,000 guests for a wedding banquet, or 600 for an evening reception. This elegant room has no pillars, adding to the sense of space and grandeur. With a modern interior design, reception area and high ceiling, this is the perfect wedding venue to begin your journey of a lifetime. You can also include the poolside area, Thistle Club and Arondina’s Outdoor Terrace in your plans.
Chinoise Chinese Restaurant can be transformed into a grand theatre of exquisite Chinese cuisine to suit the occasion you wish to celebrate. The hotel’s Master Chef and his team of culinary artists are adept at conjuring up an array of sumptuous traditional Cantonese and Szechuan favourites.
Thistle Johor Bahru has shown superior quality in term of presentation and delivering what was promised. Kudos especially to the event co-ordinators (Nor Pasma & Norlida) as well as the banquet team (Zul, Adzmi, Sharizal & Ariy). The early meetings, food sampling for 10 guests, final meeting before the event, and the big day itself; are very well-planned and conducted systematically and professionally. The Grilled Chicken with Hoi Sin Sauce and Individual Wrapped Glutinous Rice was marvelous! Their Chef is flexible enough to allow the customer change the cooking methods from the standard menu.
The banquet team has done a great job in arranging the tables, good team works & very friendly services provided to all the guests. The overall decoration is gorgeous & the bridal room is super luxurious, decorated with flower petal. The Sales Team can be hard to deal with though.

I had a splendid and brilliant wedding reception experience here on 05/04/2014 ! I’m from Penang, and I chose Thistle Johor Bahru as my wedding venue after carefully shortlisting a few other venues in Johor Bahru (most of my relatives are from Johor & Singapore). It was a night event held at the Orchid Ballroom, with a total number of 400 guests. Even though the distance from my home does not allow me to travel frequently there, the preparations went along smoothly with the in-house event coordinators. The early meetings, food sampling for 10 guests, final meeting before the event, and the big day itself; are very well-planned and conducted systematically and professionally as per my expectations. I spent 3 nights here for my event, 1 night in a deluxe sea view room and the remaining 2 nights with my wife in the bridal suite (superb room with an open air balcony of a breathless view of Straits of Johor/Singapore, you should really try it out to see what I’m talking about) and I love the warm courtesy shown and the atmosphere of the hotel throughout my stay. The day of the event was thrilling for me, in which I took part on some of the final preparations and rehearsals. The wedding itself was simply a blissful night to remember, which my family had a nice bonding time with each other. It was during this time that Thistle Johor Bahru has shown its upmost superior quality of excellence in term of presentation and delivering what was promised. Kudos especially to the event co-ordinators (Nor Pasma & Norlida) as well as the banquet team (Zul, Adzmi, Sharizal & Ariy) and all of Thistle Johor Bahru employees that I came across during my stay, your expertise and courtesy really made my wedding an event of a lifetime!
My wedding at Thistle Hotel JB last weekend was a blast! I would like to thank you and your team, especially Ms Pasma for making my wedding banquet such a memorable event to my guests. Although there were some hiccups initially from the previous staff but your new staff Pasma were very attentive to our many demanding requests. I’m apologetic that despite Pasma’s brother wedding was on the same day as us, she came back to work in the evening and assisted us until the banquet ends in midnight. I’m truly impressed by the professional services rendered to us. Initially i was indecisive to consider Thistle Hotel compared to Renaissance Hotel and Traders Hotel. But now seriously i have no regrets as i received quite a no. of compliments from my guests that the Grilled Chicken with Hoi Sin Sauce and Individual Wrapped Glutinous Rice was marvellous! I must also thanks the Master Chef for being flexible to allow us to change the cooking methods from the standard menu. Last words to all couples ~ Look no further if you wish to hold your wedding in Johor Bahru!
We are happy to hold our wedding dinner in Thistle Hotel,JB. It is awesome & rather appreciated the organizer Ms. Yvonne Kam to arrange everything make us feel very sweet & enjoy the wedding for whole night! The banquet team is pretty well arranging our table, good team works & very friendly services provided to us & to all my guest. The hotel overall decoration is gorgeous & our bridal room is super luxury, decorated with flower petal, thanks for the set of Salvator Feregamo shower set, a heart shape cake, a compliment champagne & last we are very very enjoy to have our breakfast in the suite. Well done & Thanks everyone in Thistle hotel!
In a nutshell, I was a customer who was already sold on the Thistle brand. All I required was for Sales to provide me with the necessary information and to take my deposit to book the ballroom. Yet, the Sales Team lied to me, treated me with utter rudeness, and contrived to make such a big mess of the situation that I almost went elsewhere for my wedding arrangements. However, luckily Thistle’s operations department, led by Adzura managed to salvage the situation and made the event a success. In total, I met up personally with Adzura only 3 times, but achieved so much more than my 4 meetings with Sales. My advice is to only hold your wedding in Thistle if you have the patience to deal with their Sales Team!
