September 30, 2021 – Sunway Hospitality has announced the launch of its first hotel in southern Malaysia. The 284-room Sunway Hotel Big Box will debut in Johor on October 1. Located in Sunway City Iskandar Puteri, an 1,800-acre integrated township with residential, hospitality, retail, educational and medical elements, the hotel is surrounded by mangrove forests and is easily accessible via Senai International AirportPuteri Harbour International Ferry Terminal and the Coastal Highway Southern Link from Singapore, which is just three miles away.

Suitable for couples, families and corporate groups, the hotel offers eco-activities in over 1,800 acres of wild, green space, which includes cycling paths, hiking trails and other soon-to-be-revealed activities. Alternatively, ATV driving, go-karting, paintballing, indoor snowboarding and more can be enjoyed at X-Park, which is within walking distance of the hotel, and retail therapy is available at the Sunway Big Box Retail Park, an open-air mall which covers 500,000 square feet of space and offers numerous retail, F&B and entertainment outlets, including 13 large warehouse-style concept stores.

Guests can choose from five categories of accommodation, all of which are designed with contemporary interiors, complimentary Wi-Fi, smart flat-screen IPTV, mini fridges, coffee and tea-making facilities and sofa beds in select categories. Each hotel room will also provide reusable, sanitized and sealed stainless-steel bottles, with water dispensers on every floor, and guest bathrooms will have organic shampoo and bath gel in recyclable containers, reducing the need for single-use plastics and helping to eliminate non-degradable waste. In the lobby, a self-check-in kiosk will expedite the arrival process, while also reducing the hotel’s paper usage.

During the soft-opening phase later this year, guests will be able to book the 345-square-foot Deluxe King or Twin Rooms, which can host up to two adults and two children, or the 614-square-foot Family Suites, which have a separate living space, two bathrooms, a bedroom with a super king or twin beds, a sofa bed, capsule coffee machine and microwave.

Other amenities at the hotel include an outdoor pool and children’s pool, a 24-hour fitness center and a pool bar. The Pendas Café serves local and international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a 24-hour in-room dining menu, while a bridge offers direct connections to many additional F&B options at Sunway Big Box Retail Park.

For corporate travellers and event planners, Sunway Hotel Big Box has three flexible meeting rooms that can accommodate between 20 and 300 people, with an LED video wall and mobile 86-inch interactive touch screen Smart Panel.
