Sunway Resort, the flagship five-star property at Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, has embarked on a landmark US$60 million transformation that will elevate it to become one of Asia’s leading integrated resort destinations.
The revitalisation of Sunway Resort, which kicked off last year and the most extensive upgrade in its 25-year history, will embrace the latest design and cutting-edge technology.
Once the property reopens in phases by Q4 this year, it will be completely transformed with 460-smart, environmentally-friendly and intuitively-designed room and suites, an international celebrity chef restaurant, and extensive family, leisure and wellness facilities that form the heart of the guest experience.
“We can’t wait to reveal the new-look Sunway Resort. This hotel has been a Malaysian icon ever since it opened in 1996, and this dramatic transformation will restore it to its rightful place at the forefront of Asia’s travel and hospitality sector. With visionary design, futuristic technology and eco-friendly solutions, we will create a destination that will attract business and leisure travelers from all around the world,” said Sunway City Kuala Lumpur Hotels Senior General Manager Alex Castaldi.
Besides the transformation, Sunway Resort, also announced a ground-breaking partnership with Gordon Ramsay Restaurants to open the world-renowned, multi-Michelin starred chef’s first-ever restaurant in Malaysia, marking the start of an exciting new era of international gastronomy for the country.
Under the historic collaboration, guests at Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, the iconic lifestyle destination, will be treated to a blend of culinary brilliance and electric entertainment at Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill – the concept’s first location outside of London.
Scheduled to open in Q4 2021, it will be the signature dining destination at Sunway Resort, that will excite guests and elevate the entire Malaysian hospitality sector.
Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill will create an inviting atmosphere for all-day dining, from breakfast and lunch through afternoon tea to evening dinners and cocktail hours. There will also be the opportunity for private dining. With floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the Sunway Lagoon, the view is going to be spectacular.
Diners can select from an impressive menu, specialising in premium ingredients and exceptional flavours including the prime cuts of the finest meat, the very best elements from Gordon Ramsay’s world-famous signature dishes, as well as local selections specially created for the restaurant.
Guests staying in Sunway Resort’s specialty suites will have daily breakfast at Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill inclusive of their stay, creating one of the world’s most sought-after hotel breakfasts.
The world-renowned chef, restaurateur and star of must-watch shows such as Kitchen Nightmares, Hell’s Kitchen, and MasterChef US, Gordon Ramsay has a collection of acclaimed restaurants in the UK, Europe, US and beyond and holds seven Michelin stars. This exciting new partnership marks the first international opening for Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill outside of London.
The unveiling of Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill forms part of the transformation of Sunway Resort, which is being completely reimagined under a seamless and sustainable vision for the future.
New family facilities, specialty rooms and suites, and exclusive lounges will be empowered by cutting-edge technology, such as smartphone key entry, motion sensors, live online fitness coaching, and chromotherapy showers all integrated into the guest experience.
