Sunway Hospitality has opened Sunway Hotel Big Box, the first Sunway hotel in southern Malaysia, part of City Iskandar Puteri, a 728ha integrated township with residential, hospitality, retail, educational and medical elements.
For corporate travellers and event planners, the 284-key Sunway Hotel Big Box features three flexible meeting rooms that can accommodate between 20 and 300 people, with a three-metre LED video wall and mobile 86” interactive touch screen Smart Panel to uplift any presentation.
Guestrooms have been decked out with a smart flatscreen IPTV, fridges, complimentary Wi-Fi, and coffee- and tea-making appliances. And as part of Sunway’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, each room will also provide reusable, sanitised and sealed stainless-steel bottles, with water dispensers on every floor, and guest bathrooms will feature organic shampoo and bath gel in recyclable containers, reducing the need for single-use plastics and helping to eliminate non-degradable waste.
Facilities on-site include an outdoor pool and children’s pool, 24-hour fitness centre, or Pool Bar. The Pendas Café serves local and international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a 24-hour in-room dining menu.
Sunway Hotel Big Box hotel also offers corporate guests access to a natural playground surrounded by some of the region’s lushest mangrove forests resulting from preservation and conservation efforts by Sunway.
Cycling paths and hiking trails abound, and the hospitality company is in the midst of planning for other activities that will bring corporate groups closer to nature. Alternatively, adrenaline-fuelled activities such as ATV driving, go-karting, paintballing, indoor snowboarding and more can be enjoyed at X-Park, which is within walking distance of the hotel.
Meanwhile, retail therapy is available at the Sunway Big Box Retail Park. Connected to the hotel via a bridge, 46,000m2 open-air mall offers numerous retail, F&B and entertainment outlets, including 13 large warehouse-style concept stores.
