Austin Is Not In Texas

There are many places named Austin and one of them is in johor, Malaysia. It is one of the well planned township in the southern state of Malaysia. Mount austin as it is called, is a HOPSCA Township with a vison of Building Sustainability Through Visionary Leadership.  

A HOPSCA concept is the integration of Home, Office, Park, School Commercial and Attractions. 

I had this opportunity of being guest to this Mount Austin, Johor with a group of bloggers roped in to cover the officiating of Desastay by Chief minister of Johor at Parit Tengah, Seri Merlong and after which we put up a night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort. 



 We were greeted to a sumptuous dinner at the Sunrise Terrace overlooking the beautiful view of the 18 hole golf course. 

The Sunset Terrace is not only a dining place but also to cater for other functions and activities such as barbeque, karaoke sessions and lazing around watching golfers enjoying their game on the greens. 

Just to show what our dinner was during our arrival, I "Curi" this photo from Emily's My Lifestyle Blog, since I do not carry along my camera. All I depended was on my cheap phone camera. 

At Austin Golf & Hotel Resort, there's the Sunrise Cafe, casual all-day dining café for golfers on the move and guests. Sunrise Café serves both western and local food. It is open from breakfast till dinner. With its scenic view, it is the perfect place for a comfortable meal.

Operating Hours:
7.00 a.m to 9.00 p.m (Daily)


I tried to contain this sweet little bird at the unique seating inside Sunrise Cafe but the opening is too big and the bird flew away.

Photo below is another beautiful view of the Golf Course from the Sunrise Terrace. 

After a tiring day at Parit Tengah, Seri Merlong in Rengit, earlier in the day, and a delicuous dinner, we retired to our respective rooms. 

Nothing can show our expression as soon as we open the door and step inside except a big WOW!!! at the size of the room. Many of us said we can play badminton inside. The room is actually very big and can easily overtake the size of a unit of studio apartments. 

Even with two King sized beds, there are still many space available and in fact it still has room to fit  two or three more King Size bed, according to my to my evaluation. The room that I stay overlooks the Golf Course and I think Johor Bharu in the distance. 

For Hotel Rates and room types refer to Hotels website at the end of this blog post.

Besides the Extra Large rooms, and a beautiful Golf Course, Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resorts also has some extra amenities that might be missing from other hotel and resort. One very significant facilities is the presence of two theater that can house 30 guest at any one screening. Not only the the presence of those theaters but it has the most comfortable seating if not in Malaysia at least in Johor.
The theater's adjustable reclining seat is more comfortable compared to the bed in the room and patrons can risk snoozing off easily through the screening. If you feel too cold, there's also a blanket provided to warm up yourself. 


Screening starts at 10..00 pm and that depends on availability of patrons or demand.

Adjoining the theater there's also pool tables and Austin Heights Golf @ Hotel Resort also has an 8 lane computerised bowling alley adjacent to the indoor games room. Check the hotel websites at the bottom of this blog post for rates. 

For tired golfers or guest, there are two Jacuzzi and saunas on the ground floor one each for men and women. The Jacuzzi is large enough for you to swim in it, LOL. 


There is also a large outdoor swimming pool and childrens pool along the way to the driving range. (Photo credit to agoda.com website)
