Skudai R&R The Best Rest Area in Johor

We went to Johor some time back and we stumbled upon Skudai R&R (Rest and Relax) during our travel. This Skudai R&R opens during MCO and it offers many cool reasons and facilities that you can’t find in other rest areas in Johor.

Skudai R&R

The Skudai R&R is beside North South Highway (South) towards Johor Bahru and Singapore. It is really hard to miss Skudai R&R as there are many signages before the entry.

Look out for 2 “Kawasan Rehat Skudai” highway signages at 1KM and 500M away to enter the R&R ingress and another 2 direction signages for the turning in.

On top of that, the Skudai R&R is located 2km after Johor Premium Outlet. You can take a pit stop at Skudai R&R after your day long shopping at Johor Premium Outlet. It is also 15 minute drive to Senai Airport and 25km to Johor Bahru and Singapore.

Once you spotted the Skudai R&R, you will spot the petrol stations. Skudai R&R will be the home of a few petrol stations and two are currently running. At this time, you can find Caltex and Shell Petrol Stations at Skudai R&R.

Here are few things you should know about the Caltex and Shell Petrol stations at Skudai R&R.

Family Mart

This is one of the biggest Family Mart outlets in Johor. There are parking spaces at Family Mart and that makes it very convenient for everyone to have a pit stop at this Family Mart outlet.

This is an important place after a long drive or you just wanted to get something for a snack or quick bite, you can find everything at Family Mart.

Skudai R&R Family Mart

What I like about Family Mart is their food and snacks and the imported Japanese food and drinks. Since we can’t travel to Japan, this is the closest place we can have to Japan.

Eureka PopCorn

One of our favourite popcorns are available at Skudai R&R. It is the Eureka Popcorn and it is located inside Family Mart. If you want popcorn, this is the place you can get them.

If you are at Skudai R&R, Family Mart is one of the places you can take a pit stop, refresh, reload and shop.

Burger King Drive Thru

Are you a fan of the Whopper burger? Check out the Burger King Drive Thru at Caltex Petrol Station at Skudai R&R.

After hours of driving and you plan to have a quick bite, you should visit the Burger King Drive Thru. They offer a great range of burgers and you won’t regret it.

Starbucks Drive Thru

The Starbucks Drive Thru is probably one of the most popular places at Skudai R&R as you can see many travelers and locals packed at this popular Starbucks outlet. The carpark in Starbucks are often full. Just park at the main carpark and make a short walk over to Starbucks!

Family Friendly Facility and Cleanest Toilet

We have been to many impressive and clean toilets in countries like Japan and Thailand. As a Malaysian, I am proud to say that Skudai R&R is one of the cleanest I have been to, even compared to Japan. We always complain that the toilets at R&R are usually dirty but it is definitely not the case at Skudai R&R.

This is a family friendly facility and this means direct, quick access from the carpark to toilets without any stairs and the toilets have pram friendly toilet cubicles.

What we notice about Skudai R&R is the proper planning when building the R&R. The public area and toilets are inclusive of ramps and designs that are friendly for families, children, disabled and the elderly.
