Corporate guests and members of the media were invited to rediscover the redesigned and refreshed spaces at the Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa

The four-month closure, which facilitated an RM54 million refurbishment, includes enhanced facilities and technology upgrades to the Grand Ballroom, in addition to meeting and function rooms spread across three levels, as well as pre-function areas – all reopened in November 2018.

During the event, Roger Marcz, Cluster General Manager of Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, said in his welcome speech that 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 experiences to stay relevant to fast-changing consumer tastes and needs. Re.Defined brings a refreshed approach to Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa's events and meeting 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."

The highlight during the launch of the new Grand Ballroom at the Re.Defined showcase was the surround sound and visual experience created by the built-in high definition LED screen backdrop, alongside four additional LED screens located on the front and side walls of the ballroom that show video in panorama formats for an immersive effect. A laser light show was also showcased alongside the high-powered sound system, demonstrating the venue's versatility for events of all kinds.

The Grand Ballroom also featured a sensory visual experience with different set-ups including dining tables dressed in multiple themes such as Oriental, Bollywood, Muhibbah, and Gatsby, for cocktail events, meetings, or conferences.

Some of the 32 meeting and function rooms in Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa were also set up in the manner of different event types to showcase their versatility. These included a Grooming Workshop, Engineering Workshop, Creative Think-Tank Workshop, VVIP Dinner, Annual General Meeting, Board of Directors meeting, and a Regional Sales Conference.

Commenting on the concept and inspiration for the redefined spaces, Marcz said, "We wanted to create functional 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."

The 2,266 square-foot Grand Ballroom, overlooking the lagoon and Sunway City, has a new luxurious palette of gold, bronze, platinum, and a tinge of royal blue, with contemporary textures and bold geometric patterns, used dramatically on walls, carpeting, and ceilings.

Grand crystal dome lights controlled by a smart lighting system run through the ballroom, including the vast ballroom foyer – in addition to the natural light that shines through the floor-to-ceiling windows, giving it a completely different atmosphere during the day and night.

The pillarless Grand Ballroom features a dramatic 30-foot high ceiling and a grand built-in elevated stage, equipped with a high-definition LED screen backdrop, alongside four additional LED screens located on the front and side walls of the ballroom for guests to enjoy an unobstructed view from any angle.

Ideal for the most prestigious banquets as well as intimate functions, the Ballroom can seat 2,000 guests in a banquet setting, 2,700 guests in a theatre setting, and 1,400 guests in a classroom setting. It also has divisible partitioning features that can split the ballroom into three separate rooms to cater for smaller event needs.

Perfect for business events, intimate functions, and social gatherings, the 32 versatile column-free meeting and function rooms spread across three levels of the hotel, each measuring between 30 to 344 square meters, have also been transformed with new carpeting, wall coverings, lighting, and furniture, including the pre-function spaces and common coffee break areas.

The use of wood and fabric, including wall coverings made from jute, an environmentally friendly natural product, exude an inviting air of warmth and cosiness.

Modern gadgetry and high-end technology have been fitted to give small meetings, brainstorm sessions, discussions, and presentations an extra edge. These include built-in LED projection screens or 86" interactive touchscreen televisions with screen sharing and built-in whiteboard functions supporting multiple devices, as well as the functionality to save the whiteboard content into a USB memory device.

The names of the function rooms have also been changed to represent "assembly points" where new insights are generated and memories are created – Forum, Congress, and Arena. Located on levels 10 and 12 respectively, the Grand Forum and Grand Congress function rooms are made up of three and four combined function rooms respectively. Overlooking Sunway Lagoon to present a cosy atmosphere and "wow" factor for every occasion, these function rooms seat up to 300 persons in a banquet setting and 330 in a theatre setting. The Grand Forum is supported by 12 other function rooms on level 10, while the Grand Congress is supported by eight other function rooms on level 12.

On level 15, the Arena features five function rooms with Arena 4 as the most sought-after choice for brainstorming and workshops due to its panoramic windows overlooking Sunway City's skyline, inspiring creativity and sparking ideas. For more private and intimate events, the individual Arena function rooms can host between 22 to 132 persons in theatre or private dinner settings.

Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa has numerous events and celebration packages for every occasion. From weddings, conferences, cocktails, and charity events to meetings, birthday parties, and social gatherings, organisers can rest assured that every aspect and element is given due importance in accordance to preferences and expectations.

To further enhance the refreshed function rooms, event planners can also look forward to a wider range of new banquet menu options for meetings as well as dinner events. The food and beverage professionals, and a brigade of chefs led by Executive Chef Peter Lee, are able to customise a menu based on guests' tastes, preferences, and dietary requirements. From local to international flavours, buffets to serving menus, the new menus will complement the brand-new spaces for truly memorable events.

Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, combined with Sunway Clio Hotel and the adjacent Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre, offer a total of nearly 13,000 square metres of function space featuring more than 60 individual meeting rooms, making the area one of Malaysia's most versatile conventions and exhibitions venues. The convention centre also recently went through a refurbishment programme, unveiling a world-class convention venue with versatile facilities and services.
