Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa has reopened its Grand Ballroom and event spaces after a four-month, RM54 million (US$13.2 million) refurbishment.
Roger Marcz, cluster general manager of Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, said: â€śFor the past 22 years, we have played host to numerous local and international corporate events, meetings and social celebrations, and we are delighted to be adding a new chapter to our story, especially of our Grand Ballroom.”
The 210m2 Grand Ballroom overlooking the lagoon and Sunway City now sports grand crystal dome lights, smart lighting system and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The venue features a nine-metre-high ceiling and elevated stage equipped with high definition LED screen backdrop, alongside four additional LED screens on the front and side walls.
The ballroom can seat 2,000 guests in banquet setting, 2,700 guests in theatre setting and 1,400 guests in classroom setting. It can split into three separate rooms to cater for smaller event needs.
On 15 November 2018, The Economistâ€™s Sustainability Summit Asia, with 150 attendees, became the first event to be held in the Grand Lagoon Ballroom since its re-opening. In a statement, the property said its ballroom has multiple international and local functions, weddings and banquet events confirmed for this year.
The 32 column-free meeting and function rooms measuring 30m2 to 344m2 have also been transformed with new carpeting, wall coverings, lightings and furniture, including its pre-function spaces and coffee break areas.
Modern gadgetry and technology include LED projection screens or an 86â€ť interactive touchscreen TV with screen sharing and built-in whiteboard function which supports multiple devices, as well as the functionality to save the whiteboard content into a USB memory device.
The names of all function rooms have also been changed to Forum, Congress and Arena.
The Grand Forum and Grand Congress are made up of three and four combined function rooms respectively. Each has lagoon view and seats up to 300 pax in banquet setting and 330 in theatre setting.
Under the Arena range of rooms, Arena 4 offers an inspiring venue space suitable for brainstorming and workshops, with its panoramic windows overseeing the city skyline. For more private and intimate events, the individual function rooms can host anywhere from 22 to 132 people in a theatre setting.
Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, combined with Sunway Clio Hotel and the adjacent Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre, offer a total of close to 13,000 m2 of function space featuring more than 60 meeting rooms. The convention centre also recently went through a refurbishment programme.
