Staycation at Sunway Resort Hotel

[Media Review]

We have been to Kuala Lumpur (KL) umpteen times because AJ’s grandparents live there. But, I am embarrassed to say, we have not really explored KL like a tourist until this trip in June 2017 when we spent a week there. And the bonus is: I managed to squeeze in a night stay in Sunway Resort Hotel.

Magnificent Sunway

This was our first time to Sunway City (so suaku right?) and it is so big that I think I need 3 full days to explore. Sunway City township sprawls over 800 acre with an integration 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 and educational facilities.  

Sunway Resort Hotel - Premier Park View Suite

The flagship hotel in Sunway City is this 5-star Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa. It is one of the most iconic hotel in KL, with a dramatic neo classical facade. The hotel offers 468 guestrooms, suites and pool villas. All guestrooms are equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, satellite television, in-room electronic safe deposit box, coffee and tea making facilities and a mini-bar.

With daily supply of tea, coffee and fruits, and the sumptuous buffet breakfast,
I felt that I could skip lunch to save the calories :P

The bathroom is huge! Even bigger than some bedrooms in some new condos!

The 3 hotels are within easy access of Sunway Lagoon and Sunway Pyramid Mall. The 88-acre Sunway Lagoon offers over 90 rides and attractions! The Sunway Pyramid Mall has over 900 specialty stores, 170 food and beverage outlets, ice-skating rink, 48-lane bowling centre, 12-screen cineplex and much more. So now you know why I said 3 days here? I think 3 days could be an understatement too.

Our room overlooked the Sunway Lagoon.
Every time I looked at it, I had the urge to plunge into the water.

Leisure facilities that are directly accessible from the Hotel include an oversized free-form landscaped swimming pool with cascading waterfall with an attached children's pool, a fitness centre and a Balinese-inspired Mandara Spa.

Such inviting pool! Needless to say, AJ couldn't wait to dip into it!

The fitness centre, overlooking the pool, is huge too!
I wish I had the time to stay on. I was so tempted to join the classes and try out the equipment!

Located adjacent to The Villas is this Mandara Spa, which renders a spa setting that is as luscious as its menu of treatments. The Spa features over 30 treatments from RM300 up. It is open daily from 10am to 9pm.

My me-time while the husband took the boy to swim :)

The Resort Cafe - the hotel's all-day dining restaurant is where we had our buffet breakfast. It also serves a la carte specialities. What impressed me is not just the buffet breakfast spread (Malaysian, Asian, Middle East and Western cuisines), it is also the top-notch service level. The service staff paid attention to families with young children and they even remember the guests' names!

So wide a selection, I was spoilt for choices! 

I have never been happier staying in a hotel in KL like Sunway Resort Hotel. Given a choice, I would definitely opt for a 3D2N stay than a 2D1N stay. Sunway City has so much to offer that it wouldn't do it a justice to simply stay for a night. You hear me, husband? Or the son can consider studying here in Sunway University (affiliated with Monash University) and mama gets to stay here (but long way to go)!
