Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa Kuala Lumpur To Receive US$60m Transformation

October 14, 2020 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, in a drive to establish the urban destination as Asia’s leading integrated resort complex and a regional tourism hub, will undergo a US$60 million transformation.

Scheduled to reopen in phases from March 2021, Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa will be defined by seamless integration of the reimagined 478-room property complete with a world-renowned hero restaurant brand, six cascading waterfalls amongst two landscaped pools and extensive family and health facilities. Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa sits alongside the iconic family-focused Sunway Lagoon theme park which stretches over 88 acres and six entertainment zones.

With design led by Nelson Yong, Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa has incorporated new family suites, pool villas, smartphone key entry and motion sensors, live online fitness coaching, chromotherapy showers and wellness lighting to assist sleeping.

For business visitors, the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre features hi-tech space to host some 4,000 delegates theatre style or 6,000 for a cocktail reception for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions.

“It is time, it is as simple as that,” said Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey CheahFounder and Chairman of Sunway Group. “We built Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa in 1996. But now we need to step into the future as we embrace a new generation of leisure and business guests and bring together Sunway City Kuala Lumpur as one fully-integrated hospitality and entertainment destination that will rival the very best in the world.”

Sustainability is a driving philosophy of Sunway and a vertical farm by FutureX will be a key source of ingredients for all restaurants, offering healthy and farm-fresh produce for guests.

FutureX is an urban farm located in the heart of Sunway City where farming professionals, tech companies, researchers and young talent create solutions focused on food and agritech. In many ways, Sunway City Kuala Lumpur is a “living laboratory” with a thriving ecosystem where ideas are incubated and sustainable solutions are generated for posterity.

In minimising the hotel’s carbon footprint, a host of environmental measures will be introduced, including contactless check-in/out, digital hotel directories, energy-saving a/c systems and “Smart Curtains” that will help to regulate room temperatures. Solar panels, motion-sensor LED lighting and advanced water technologies will further enhance efficiency.
