Malaysia Bucket List: To Stay In Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa!

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

If I see myself in Malaysia again, I have two main things on my bucket list: 1) Go to Penang, and 2) Stay longer in Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa!

Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa is one of the largest hotel developments in Kuala Lumpur, located within the integrated township of Sunway City. The vibrant 800-acre land seamlessly integrates a cluster of 3 hotels (Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Sunway Pyramid Hotel and Sunway Clio Hotel), conference and convention centres, a theme park, a mega shopping and entertainment mall, medical centre, educational facilities and a multitude of distinctive business and leisure facilities for an all-inclusive experience and convenience.


The flagship hotel in Sunway City is the 5-star Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa. As one of the most iconic hotel in Kuala Lumpur, a dramatic neo classical façade welcomes guests to superlative features and thematic architectural designs. The hotel offers a collection of 468 well-appointed guestrooms, suites and pool villas. Most rooms have a view of Sunway Lagoon or the city’s skyline; some provide balcony with an opportunity to walk out to the gardens and swimming pool.

The Club guestrooms and suites in Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa are designed for a lifestyle of added comfort, privacy and exclusivity with all the necessary facilities and services to cater for business executives and leisure traveller on-the-go.

The Villas is Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa’s accommodation nestled within the 800-acres of the resort’s lush tropical gardens. Each pool-villa features a master suite, private plunge pool, sunken bathtub and rain-shower facilities, leafy balcony, and numerous leisure facilities. Mandara Spa is located adjacent to The Villas.

The more private area for The Villas guests:


The 4.5-star Sunway Pyramid Hotel brings great comfort and functionality. The hotel showcases a collection of 564 guestrooms, which includes the Deluxe category rooms and 21 purpose-built family rooms and suites (larger rooms, can accommodate up to 6). Located at the lobby level is Kaffeinate, an express café that serves light snacks and refreshments for dine-in and takeaway. 

We stayed in Sunway Pyramid Hotel for a night. It may seem small, but it is actually spacious, clean, and had everything we need. I had a comfortable sleep, plus the shower / toilet room is HUGE!


The 26-storey 4-star Sunway Clio Hotel features 401 guestrooms with a choice of two (2) room types – Deluxe Plus and Deluxe Plus Executive Rooms; with options of rooms with unimpeded views of Sunway Lagoon or the city’s skyline. 

Leisure and business facilities in the hotel includes five (5) meeting rooms with a capacity of 20 to 150 persons, an all-day dining outlet, an outdoor swimming pool and a 24-hour fitness centre that overlooks the city’s dramatic skyline. 

Adjoining Sunway Clio Hotel is the Sunway Pyramid Mall’s retail enclave – Sunway Pyramid West, where hotel guests can look forward to more food and beverage offerings.


Right next to the hotels and resort is Sunway's shopping mall where guests can enjoy fiverse food and beverage outlets. 

Here's a list of some of their food choices:
  • The Resort Caféall-day dining restaurant presents a wide range of àla carte specialties, chefs’ signatures and buffet spreads of flavourful Malaysian, Asian and regional favourites with a selection of Middle Eastern and Western cuisines including two (2) voluminous salad and fruit towers featuring fresh seasonal greens and fruits. 
Enjoyed our breakfast buffet here, plus service is A+!
  • The Lobby Lounge - the perfect venue for afternoon tea and evening cocktails with a comprehensive list of beverages and snacks, while enjoying a series of live music performances daily. 
  • Cherootz - For cigar and whiskey lovers, they offer a relaxing and intimate space in the lounge for some private sessions with friends or business partners.
  • Busaba Thai
  • Eight Gourmets Gala (E.G.G)
  • Grand Imperial Chinese Restaurant
  • Kaffeinate
  • Café West
  • Starbucks Coffee
  • Sanoook 
Lunch was in Sanoook where I had vegetarian sushi, and where they play Filipino songs! So cool!

  • Menya Miyabi
  • Hokkaido Ramen
  • Impressoul Gastrology
  • Slappy Cakes
  • Parenthood - one-stop parenting hub providing edutainment and leisure activities including an exciting indoor playground for the little ones, a café, a beauty salon, children speciality shops, an international pre-school and child-minding services for the ultimate in convenience.
 We had dinner in Hotpot Kitchen on our first night in Sunway. Serving size is huge so make sure you bring with you your big appetite when you dine in. I love that their selection of veggies are all fresh!


Meanwhile, the 88-acre Sunway Lagoon multi-park destination offers over 90 rides and attractions spread across its six (6) signature parks - Water Park, Extreme Park, Amusement Park, Wildlife Park, Scream Park and the Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon - the first Nickelodeon themed land in Asia featuring more than 10 rides.

The Water Park lays claim to the world's largest man-made beach; the Sunway Surf Beach – stretching over 13,000 square metres, the surf pool is able to generate perfectly shaped waves up to eight (8) feet, and has been an irresistible draw to many events. 

Other attractions in the theme park include the world’s highest, largest and most thrilling water ride, the Vuvuzela, Malaysia's first permanent bungee jump by AJ Hackett and the country's first surf simulator - the FlowRider combining surfing, wakeboarding and skateboarding. Sunway Lagoon is also home to the World’s First Waterplexx 5D.

I was so decided that I will just go to the extreme rides and not swim na, but this view of the pool was so tempting I almost gave in!!

Wasn't able to explore the Nickelodeon side of Sunway, must go back and stay for 3 days, or maybe even a week!

Warm-up before the rides: Archery! Haha!

If extreme rides is your thing, they have a lot to offer at the Sunway Extreme Park and Amusement Park!

This ride FLIPS to 360 degrees!! 😂

We got wet nadin by the end of our day at the theme park! Haha!

The best part is that Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa is just 35 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), and 25 minutes to the city center. Again, I wish I can go here again and stay longer on my next trip in Malaysia!
