Bukit Indah is a mature township located in the heart of Nusajaya, Iskandar Malaysia, Johor. The township was developed by SP Setia Berhad. Bukit Indah, which was launched in 1997, has a population of over 60,000 with over 10,000 houses.The township is the winner of the Johor State Landscape Award 2001, the National Landscape Competition 2001 and the Best of the Best National Landscape Award 2005. Bukit Indah is fast gaining reputation as the "centre" of the "new" western Johor (Nusajaya) commercial district.

From Singapore, the Causeway Link Bus No. CW3 links Jurong East Bus Interchange, Singapore directly to the Bukit Indah Bus Interchange in the township. Bus No. CW6 now also links the township with the Boon Lay MRT. Other public buses also connect the township to other parts of Johor.

The township draws crowds from Singapore as well as neighbouring townships such as Taman Sutera, Tampoi Utama, Nusa Bestari and Tmn Perling, due to the existence of Tesco Hypermarket and AEON Jusco Bukit Indah Regional Shopping Centre which are located in the township.Giant Hypermarket is also located adjacent to the township.

With the completion of the new Nusajaya coastal highway from Tuas - Gelang Patah - Lego Land - Medini 1 - Horizon Hills - Bukit Indah - Danga Bay - Johor CIQ - Woodlands, the travel time from Bukit Indah either to the causeway or secondlink will be cut significantly.

On the 24th May 2010, the Prime Ministers of Malaysia and Singapore have signed a landmark agreement to lower the toll charges for the Tuas Secondlink significantly, thus benefiting the residents of Bukit Indah.

The value of land in Nusajaya, where Bukit Indah is located, is expected to increase, esp. with the future Wellness City to be jointly built by Temasik (SWF of Singapore) and Khazanah (SWF of Malaysia). This area would be the first new economic zone that both governments have a vested interest.

In line with both governments to ensure faster immigration clearance, the MACS - Malaysia Automated Clearance System has been implemented. This facility allows fast-track immigration clearance for non Malaysia investors, business persons and professionals.

The scope of MACS facility has been expanded to Singapore Citizens who has been issued with the relevant long term immigration pass OR frequently travel within Malaysia and Singapore for the purpose of working, studying and staying in Malaysia.

Bukit Indah remains the one and only current, prime commercial and residential district of the whole of western johor with the following factors.

  1. Only township with equal distance to both the woodlands and tuas checkpoints via the new coastal highway.
