SEM9 Senai, formerly known as the Perth Hotel, has finally opened its doors and gamers are looking forward to it. Why? Well, SEM9 Senai is a gaming hotel! It’s a literal haven for gamers with High-Speed Gaming PCs and a PS5 available on premises. Gamers no longer have to miss out on team raids, co-ops, or dailies while honeymooning or enjoying a staycation.
It also boasts luxurious rooms that have the latest technological facilities. The opening ceremony was presided by Dato’ Tee Siew Kiong, consultant of the Johor Digital Economy Center. He noted that it would be an opportunity for many young Johorians to start businesses and create opportunities, and to help grow Johor’s economy.
The hotel is located in Senai, Johor; a 3-minute walk from Senai International Airport. It has the latest hardware for the best gaming experience for their guests. This includes – a gaming PC, PS5 consoles, CPUs that are equipped with RTX 3090 GPU, and high-speed internet is available as well to avoid mid-game lagging. For non-gaming guests, this means you can use the internet without it being slow.
The new hotel has a different concept than the local cyber cafes (CC) that are frequent by all Malaysians. Gamers can take a nap or a break if they feel exhausted from gaming with their friends during co-op sessions. SEM9 e-sports hotels hope that their ageing patrons can enjoy what their true passion is – gaming even during a short staycation.
Furthermore, the hotel also caters for the needs of different gamers. There are different room designs and stay durations – full day stay or half-day stay. Gamers and non-gamers alike can check in to the hotel and enjoy their weekend away or short vacation while in Johor.
Dato’ Tee also notes that esports hotels are common overseas while it’s a new venture in Malaysia and has business potential for the long run. It would also be a contributor in growing the economy as well. Gamers, will you be checking in this hotel for your next holiday trip to Johor?
