Sunway City Kuala Lumpur has earmarked US$60 million for a tantalising transformation of its flagship property, Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, in a bold drive to establish the urban destination as Asia’s leading integrated resort complex and regional tourism hub.

Pioneering Sunway Group’s investment in Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa is the most extensive initiative in the resort’s 24-year history and sets out a visionary remodelling for a premier hospitality and entertainment development that will create a new benchmark for business and leisure experiences in the region for decades to come.

The hotel is scheduled to reopen in phases from March 2021.

Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa’s transformation takes its place alongside the iconic family-focused Sunway Lagoon theme park which stretches over 88 acres and six entertainment zones.

For business visitors, the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre features 7,157sq.m of hi-tech space, flexible configurations and capacity to host some 4,000 delegates theatre style or 6,000 for a cocktail reception for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE).

With design led by the celebrated Nelson Yong, Principal of Sunway Design, Sunway Resort Hotel & Spahas rebuilt swathes of the resort and re-imagined spaces offering a bold, glamourous and interconnected vision for the future. New family facilities, specialist suites, pool villas, cutting-edge technology with smartphone key entry and motion sensors, live online fitness coaching, chromotherapy showers and wellness lighting to assist sleeping which is powered by Sunway Medical Centre, are all integrated into the holistic experience.

Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa is located in Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, a vibrant 800-acre integrated sustainable city with a cluster of three hotels, conference facilities, Sunway Lagoon theme park, Sunway Pyramid lifestyle mall, Sunway Medical Centre, Sunway University and the Jeffrey Sachs Center on Sustainable Development, borne out of a partnership between the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation and the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network. — VNS
