Malaysia: Sunway Resort undergoes refurbishment, goes futuristic
KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA –Sunway Resort has 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 June 2021, it will be the signature dining destination at Sunway Resort, which is currently undergoing a once-in-a-generation transformation 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 views will be spectacular. Diners can select from an impressive menu, specialising in premium ingredients and exceptional flavours including the prime cuts of the finest meat, locally sourced and dry-aged in-house, as well as the very best elements from Gordon Ramsay’s world-famous signature dishes.
Guests staying in Sunway Resort’s specialist suites will have daily breakfast at Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill included in their rate, creating one of the world’s most sought-after hotel breakfasts. Private rooms, booths and family areas also feature in the restaurant.
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.
Andy Wenlock, Gordon Ramsay Restaurants’ CEO, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the Sunway Group as we expand our Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill concept into Malaysia, and very much look forward to sharing our wonderful menu and famed guest experience with local and international diners in 2021.”
Sustainability is a driving philosophy of Sunway, and many of the hotel’s high-tech upgrades, such as advanced air-conditioning systems, smart curtains, solar panels, motion-sensor LED lighting and new water technologies, will further improve its efficiency. Plastic bags have been abolished and an urban hydroponic farm by Sunway FutureX will supply healthy, farm-fresh produce to the resort’s restaurants.
“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 Nelson Yong’s visionary design, futuristic technology and eco-friendly solutions, we will create a destination that will attract business and leisure travellers from all around the world,” said Alex Castaldi, Senior General Manager, Sunway City Kuala Lumpur Hotels.
This transformation of Sunway Resort forms part of the evolution and elevation of the Sunway Group, as it strives to create exceptional and memorable experiences for every guest. The company has revealed its eye-catching new branding, including a reimagining of its iconic swan logo. Just like the graceful swan, Sunway embraces guests with warmth, comfort and assurance, while also displaying deep-rooted family ideals and a genuine sense of kindness.
Sunway Resort forms the centrepiece of Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, the immersive integrated destination with entertainment zones and a wealth of facilities, including the Sunway Pyramid shopping mall, Sunway Lagoon theme park and Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre. Sunway Clio Hotel and Sunway Pyramid Hotel – Sunway Resort’s sister hotels were refurbished in 2016 and 2017 respectively, and the convention centre was upgraded in 2018.
