Corporate guests and members of the media were invited to the showcase event themed “Re.Defined” to rediscover Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa’s redesigned and refreshed spaces.
The Hotel’s new technology upgrades and different event set-ups with customisable needs elevate events to an unparalleled experience. The four month closure costs RM54 million in refurbishment work.
During the event, Mr Roger Marcz, Cluster General Manager of Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa says, “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”.
A social humanoid robot – Sunny, was present during the showcase to interact with guests, providing information and guide about the new spaces. Sunny was able to recognise faces and basic human emotions, and engaged with people through conversation and his touch screen.
The highlight during the launch of the new Grand Ballroom was the surround sound and visual experience using the built-in high definition LED screen backdrop, alongside four (4) additional LED screens located on the front and side walls off the ballroom that shows panorama format for an immersive effect.
Selected meeting and functions rooms from its thirty-two (32) rooms in Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa were also set-up in different event types to showcase its versatility.
Commenting on its concept and inspiration for the redefined spaces, Mr Marcz says “We wanted to create function spaces of the future to capture masterpiece moments and the complete makeover brings an unprecedented level of meticulous care and detailing, injecting a refreshed grandeur, sophistication and a modern attitude into its space”.
