Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa for its “Re.Defined” showcase event to rediscover its redesigned and refreshed spaces of different event set-ups and customisable needs with endless possibilities to elevate events to an unparalleled experience.
The 4-month closure which facilitated a RM54 million major refurbishment work, including enhanced facilities and technology upgrades to its Grand Ballroom, meeting and functions rooms spread across 3 levels as well as all the pre-function areas, reopened in November 2018.
The fast changing landscape and today’s on-demand clients are re-shaping the way meetings and events are designed, thus Re.Defined focuses on user experience to future-proof the hotel’s products, services and offerings.
“Since its opening in 1996, the Hotel has played host to many local and international events and we continue to elevate these events experiences to stay relevant to the fast changing consumer tastes and needs. Re.Defined brings a refreshed approach to Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa’s events and meetings programmes, which are immersive, responsive and customised to exceed needs; with endless possibilities to push the boundaries of one’s imagination to elevate events to the next level,” said Mr Roger Marcz, Cluster General Manager of Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa.
I was really impressed with the surround sound and visual experience using the built-in high definition LED screen backdrop, alongside 4 additional LED screens located on the front and side walls off the ballroom that shows panorama format for an immersive effect. Laser light show with high-powered sound system was also showcased during the launch of the new Grand Ballroom at the Re.Defined event, demonstrating its ability as a venue for events of all kinds and not just a function hall.
The 2,266 square feet Grand Ballroom overlooking the lagoon and Sunway City has a new luxurious palette of colours soaring through in hues of gold, bronze, platinum and a tinge of royal blue, with contemporary textures and bold geometrical patterns, used dramatically on the wall, carpeting and ceiling.
Grand crystal dome lights with smart lighting system runs through the ballroom, including the vast ballroom foyer – in addition to the natural light that shines through the floor-to-ceiling windows, giving it a completely different scene during the day and night.
The pillar-less Grand Ballroom features a dramatic 30-ft high ceiling and a grand built-in elevated stage equipped with high definition LED screen backdrop, alongside 4 additional LED screens located on the front and side walls off the ballroom for guests to enjoy an unobstructed view from every angle.
Ideal for the most prestigious banquets as well as intimate functions, the Ballroom can seat 2,000 guests in a banquet setting, 2,700 guests in a theatre setting and 1,400 guests in a classroom setting. It also has divisible partitioning features that can split the ballroom into 3 separate rooms to cater for smaller event needs.
Perfect for business events, intimate functions and social gatherings, the 32 versatile column-free meeting and function rooms measuring 30 to 344 square metres spread across 3 levels of the hotel has also been transformed with new carpeting, wall coverings, lightings and furniture, including its pre-function spaces and common coffee break areas. The use of wood and fabric, including wall coverings made from Jute, an environmentally friendly natural product, exudes an inviting air of warmth and cosiness.
Modern gadgetry and high-end technology has been fitted in to give small meetings, brainstorms and off-site discussions or presentations an extra edge. These includes built-in LED projection screens or an 86” 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.
Located on level 10 and level 12 respectively, the Grand Forum and Grand Congress are made up of 3 and 4 combined function rooms respectively which overlook Sunway Lagoon, presenting a cosy atmosphere and wow factor for every occasion, seats up to 300 persons in a banquet setting and 330 in a theatre setting. The Grand Forum is supported by 12 other function rooms on level 10 whereas the Grand Congress is supported by 8 other function rooms on level 12.
On level 15, Arena features 5 function rooms with Arena 4 as the most sought after choice for brainstorming and workshops due to its panoramic windows that overlook the Sunway City’s skyline, inspiring creativity and sparks ideas. For more private and intimate events, the individual Arena function rooms can host from 22 to 132 persons in a theatre and/or private dinner setting.
The food & beverage professionals and a brigade of chefs led by Executive Chef Peter Lee are able to customise a menu based on guests’ taste, preferences and dietary requirements. From local to international flavours, and buffet to serving menus, the new menus will complement the brand new spaces for a truly memorable event.
Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa combined with Sunway Clio Hotel and the adjacent Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre, offers a total of close to 13,000 square metres of function space featuring more than 60 meeting rooms, making this one of Malaysia’s most versatile conventions and exhibitions venue. The convention centre also recently went through a refurbishment programme, unveiling a world-class convention venue with versatile facilities and services.
