Located in Sunway City Iskandar Puteri, a 1,800-acre integrated township with residential, hospitality, retail, educational and upcoming medical elements, the 284-room hotel offers guests access to a verdant natural playground surrounded by some of the region’s lushest mangrove forests resulting from extraordinary preservation and conservation efforts by Sunway.

Guest bathrooms will feature organic shampoo and bath gel in recyclable containers, reducing the need for single-use plastics and helping to eliminate non-degradable waste. In the lobby, a self-check-in kiosk will expedite the arrival process, while also reducing the hotel’s paper usage.
