Sunway’s First Hotel in Malaysia’s Southern Region Welcomes Guests
Sunway Hotel Big Box is poised to be a one-of-a-kind natural biosphere for tourists from around the world.
The hotel will open in phases beginning 1 October and will provide another haven of nature and adventure for all.
Sunway Hotel Big Box (SHBB) will be opened in phases beginning 1 October, in line with Malaysia’s plan to revive the economy by rebooting domestic tourism.
The RM160 million property is Sunway’s first in the Southern region of the peninsular and will be the highlight of the 1,800-acre integrated township which has brought a revival of liveability and eco-friendly spaces in the state. The 284-room hotel will sit amongst residential, hospitality, retail, educational and upcoming medical elements. It will be enveloped in the greenest of surroundings amidst some of the region’s lushest mangrove forests that were the fruits of labour of Sunway’s preservation and conservation efforts.
What to expect?
Hailed as an eco-paradise, SHBB is designed to cater to tourists from around the world.
Cycling paths and hiking trails with beautiful scenery await those eager to fully immerse themselves in nature and serenity; the X Park promises a time of thrills and spills with ATV driving, go-karting, paintballing and indoor snowboarding – all within walking distance from the hotel; and for those seeking retail therapy will be spoilt for choice at the Sunway Big Box Retail Park, a unique open-air mall sprawling 500,000 sq ft offering retail, restaurant and entertainment outlets.
The outdoor pool is a fantastic relaxation spot, and the Pool Bar is perfect for those wanting to spend their evenings sipping a drink or two. Exercise-enthusiasts will be able to enjoy a 24-hour fitness centre. The Pendas Café is open for dine in offering guests a delectable spread of local and international cuisines. Guests can opt for the 24-hour in-room dining menu as well. More dining options are available at the Sunway Big Box Retail Park, with easy access via the link bridge from the hotel.

Keeping the hotel green
SHBB has incorporated a range of environmentally-friendly elements into the rooms and throughout the hotel. Reusable, sanitised and sealed stainless-steel bottles are available in all rooms with water dispensers placed on every floor, and guest bathrooms are equipped with organic shampoo and bath gel in recyclable containers, doing away with single-use plastics to eliminate non-degradable waste.
Self-check-in kiosks at the hotel lobby will not only hasten the arrival process, but also reduce the hotel’s paper usage. These efforts are all in line with Sunway’s unwavering commitment to the UN SDGs.
