Excellent Hotel in Bandar Sunway
After a dissapointment at the Grand Central Hotel in Chowkit Area, This revisit, we now chose a more luxurious hotel that is rated four stars (but is like a five star hotel), located at the Bandar Sunway in Petaling Jaya.
This is the nearest Hotel to the Back Entrance of the Sunway Pyramid Lagoon Theme Park, you only need to go to the ground floor and pass by the big lagoon pool and to a pathway which leads to a closed Iron Gate, then Insert your hotel card to the card reader and viola, you are a few steps away from the back entrance to the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park!
Sunway Resort and Spa Hotel is a four star hotel located just above the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park and is connected to the Sunway Pyramid Hotel via a covered Walkway and to the Villas By Sunway at the swimming pool area via a wooden gate.
The Hotel boasts of 439 rooms and suites in an 18 floor buildings and five restaurants (of which the main breakfast buffet restaurant Fuzion, is at the ground floor. They also have two lagoon pools located at the 3rd floor and 1rst floor, respectively and the best deal here is the free wifi service. It again has the fastest access to the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park and is connected to the Sunway Pyramid Mall via the walkway going to the Sunway Pyramid Hotel that ends up at the Mall.
The Hotel is located 35 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and 25 minutes from Kuala Lumpur city center.
Unique Quality: the lobby is located at the seventh floor as the lobby area corresponds to the ground level and the lower 6 floors are located below (see the pictures from the Sunway Lagoon Themepark Side).
The rooms here are Huge for a four star hotel and there are wide balconies with chairs along the side facing the sunway lagoon. The hotel has a no smoking policy around the hotels and even in the rooms (BUT you can smoke at the Outside Balcony Area of your room). they have the usual amenities like free bottled water (they knock on the door twice a day to ask you if you want extra bottled water or extra soap or toothbrush, etc) free wifi service, free soap and toitletries everyday, a dryer, cofffee and teak maker, clothesline at the bathroom.
We booked a premier room and the room costs RM 539 a day, including buffet breakfast
Directions: Persiaran Lagoon, Bandar Sunway, 46150 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
I booked online after falling in love with their website. Booked the cuti-cuti package which included free tickets to the Sunway Lagoon, theme park and Zoo as well as breakfast and accommodation. The hotel itself was far from Kuala Lumpur in Selangor. I called one night in advance and found out my package was not booked under cuti-cuti but normal rates. However the staff was helpful and rectified this immediately without making me feel like I was a bother. We took a taxi to the gate and were pleased with what we saw. The lobby was full of Christmas bells and whistles and looked marvelous. The check-in was normal and I was served very courteously. The room had full windows which revealed the enormous lagoon park. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and well equipped. The room had all the necessities including free water and a guide to the hotel. A huge shopping mall was within the facility. Needless to say I was highly impressed.
Unique Quality: I had a day pass to the lagoon next door. Its the only hotel I have been to that has a zoo, with indigenous animals just next door. It has so much going on that you are sure to find what you need.
Little travel tips sharing
Whenever I’m on holiday, the one that I concern the most is the Toilet cleanliness. Can you imagine if the toilet doesn’t give you a pleasure to stay longer than a minute because of it’s dirtiness? So with this as my latest experience with sunway resort hotel, I’m truly satisfied at least I don’t feel uncomfortable and happy enough to rest at the bath tub, reading newspaper while ***TING. My last experience with one of the Singapore 3 Star hotel is I can hear other guest walking at the “room floor” whenever I’m at toilet. So annoying and make me uncomfortable.....wish its can help some ppl that need this info.
Unique Quality: Facilities, pool, services are great and more importants things is comfortable.....
Fantastic hotel outside KL
Sunway Tower Resort hotel is one of the most fantastic place I've ever stayed at. It's a five star complex half an hour drive outside central Kuala Lumpur, and is next door with the water theme park Sunway Lagoon.
The room I had was a huge one, with a great queen bed, huge bathroom with a tub and a tv with sport and movie channel. There was a safe, a fridge (empty no, no minibar) and a desk. Internet connection is available, although not wireless and definitely not cheap. 58 RM/24 hours (15 euro) is a robbery, but then again this seem to be more and more common at high valued hotel.
Best with the hotel is not the room though, and neither the great breakfast. Instead it's the cool surroundings, with a maxi shopping center in the same building (it said it contained 300 shops, but after getting lost in there five times in four days I must say that there are way more than 300...), and a ice hockey rink at the bottom of it. The rink was full all day long with people who rented skates and went out on the ice having fun. Some really good, some... eh... less good.
The hotel also has its own spa, Mandara Spa. I never got the chance to try it though, as most massage had a price of over 100 euro. Massage is nice, but not that nice...
Next to the hotel is Sunway Resort, a huge theme park specialised in water. Reviews I read before booking complained about the fact that entrance wasn't included for hotel guests, and I can kind of agree about that, specially as this five star hotel doesn't have another pool for its guests. But then again, the most expensive entrance fee is 10 euro, so I can't be too pissed about it.
More of a problem then is the location, as the hotel is a good 30 minute drive from KL. Positive is that it makes the whole place very much calmer than the rest of the city, but it also means that one has to spend a smaller fortune on taxi forth and back. Taxis to KL can be booked via the hotel and cost 50 RM (13 euro).
Unique Quality: Shopping center and hockey rink. I've never seen that inside a hotel before.
Sunway Resort & Spa (Part 2)
These are some photos of my room at the Sunway Resort & Spa, which I stayed for a few nights in June 2008. I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would come back again if I have the chance. More photos are at the travelogue section of this VT page.
Sunway Resort & Spa (Part 1)
This is a good hotel located at the Petaling Jaya area of Kuala Lumpur, which features a big water theme park (which is great especially if you are here with friends or family) as well as a big shopping mall just next to the hotel.
The hotel has 5 star facilities and the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean with great views of the water theme park. The interesting thing about this hotel is that it is built on an old mine, so the hotel lobby is actually on the 11th floor and the rooms are below the lobby instead of above it :)
More information and photos are at part 2 of this tip as well as the travelogue section of this VT page.
Not really a 5* hotel...
We were dissapointed. When we arrived in the taxi, we were just left standing there for some time before someone came to greet us and assist with the bags. Check-in ( booking was made online) was handled by a worried, no eye contact, no greeting staff member, not a very pleasant affair. When we were shown our room, which I had paid AUD$190 a night for, I just said no-way. It looked like a 3 1/2 -4 * room at best. We were upgraded to a theme suite, and we did appreciate their response. However, our dissapointment didn't end there. Service from staff in a lot of areas was offhand, bordering on the insolent at times. We felt like nuisances just being there ! The customer service just didn't happen. Getting an extra key card was a huge drama, having coffee on the pool terrace while I waited for my family to come down to breakfast was not handled graciously. The towel boy at the pool wanted to hammer home the fact that lost towels would cost us MR$35.oo, his delivery of this well signposted fact made us feel like we had already lost 10 of his towels ! We just stood there gobsmacked. It was a strange experience this hotel stay ! Gorgeous public areas though, and a very extensive buffet breakfast.
Unique Quality: Adjoined to a great shopping centre via an air-con walk bridge. Them park also adjoins. There are infrequent wave sessions and you do have to register and pay a deposit and a charge , about MR$40-50 all up for body & surf boards - you can't bring your own. This is in addition to the entry fee which is the same for users and spectators.
It is a good place for business or leisure. Why?It is a beautiful five star hotel.With a probably less than 2 minutes walk over under the roof, Sunway pyramid shopping complex. There is a Sunway Lagoon Theme Park if you are bringing your family, Petting Zoo and Extreme Park all at close proximity of walking distance.
However this hotel is in Petaling Jaya, which is quite far from city centre of Kuala Lumpur
Unique Quality: Lovely design.Good service and convenient to shop and play and rest!
Directions: Just mention Sunway hotel to the taxi driver. Is easy. Everyone should know where it is when you ask.
The Villa is one of several accommodation alternatives that Sunway provides for their high end guest.
Set within the Sunway Lagoon and Resort complex amongst the trees and out of the viewing public, this romantic hide-away takes your breath away with it charm and isolation.
Each is an individual apartment with it's own bar and spacious courtyard overlooking your very own pool. This leads you into your enclosed bedroom and TV view lounge, connected to your own fanned balcony. At the rear is your open-air bathroom.
Privacy and seclusion is the biggest sell of this place. However, if you require more, then there is the 24 hour butler, 2 hours of happy hour down at the Villa's own restaurant where you can have dinner or your complimentary buffet breakfast.
I know this sounds rich and it is. But how else to celebrate one's anniversay.
The Perfect Place to Re-ignite Romance
Unique Quality: The perfect place to re-ignite romance and of course relax. This luxury and exclusive resort (guests enter through a private entrance) houses 17 stylishly decorated villas - an idyllic retreat for honeymooners or those who want to put the spark back into their marriage. A private haven offering all the luxuries of a hotel suite amidst a natural setting.
Sunway Resort Hotel
Located at the crossroads of the Klang Valley- between Kuala Lumpur and industrial center of Shah Alam. Well served by an extensive network of expressways and only about 35 minutes drive away from the KLIA.
Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel is also the nearest five star hotel from KLIA.

2.5 million square feet shopping paradise and convention facilities with a grand hall, 8 meeting rooms and a floor space for 245 exhibition booths including an ice-skating rink, 48 lane bowling center and ten cinemas.
Hotel with more ......
Ritz Carlton, Marriot, Renaissance, Regent, Hilton, Shangri-la are among the most famous hotels around Bukit Bintang area. But, if you don't mind travelling to KL city center everyday, I'd recommend Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel which is located about 30 minutes drive from the busy city.
Unique Quality: Within the hotel area is one of the best shopping center known as 'Sunway Pyramid' . The architecture of the building was inspired by Egyptian style of design. (Good news for those shopping fanatics). There is also a water park next to the hotel. Surf pool, suspension bridge, artificial wave pool ...... and many more! Just enjoy yourself to the most.
Directions: This luxury hotel is located in Sunway. 5 minutes drive from Subang Jaya and 10 minutes drive from Petaling Jaya (PJ).

Re: Sunway Lagoon
I am not sure about that but I am quite sure that you should get a ticket online as Sunway Lagoon are famous with corporate family days where they book the whole place.
Its a good thing to get the tickets first..
