Following Johor's transition to Phase 2 in the National Recovery Plan and in preparation for the expected domestic travels for Malaysians (as well as international travels for Singaporeans!), hotel developer Sunway Hospitatility has announced its new hotel launch, Sunway Hotel Big Box. The hotel officially unveiled its majestic doors on October 1st and the developer mentioned it "aims to be a new haven of nature and adventure" as reported by The Edge Markets.

This 4-star hotel is located in the heart of Sunway City Iskandar Puteri, an integrated township with the complete aspects of retail, residency, hospitality, education and upcoming medical care. Families, couples and friends can look forward to a rejuvenating stay at this 284-room hotel as it is surrounded by pristine mangrove forests, a successful result from Sunway Group's efforts in the conservation of the environment.

Since its opening, guests can book the comfortable Deluxe King or Twin Rooms, which fits two adults and two children. If guests have a bigger family, they can opt for the spacious Family Suite, which offers a large bedroom with a Super King or Twin Beds, a separate living room, a sofa bed and two bathrooms.

Not only that, as part of Sunway Group's effort in preserving the environment, each room will be provided with sanitised and reusable stainless-steel bottles as every floor has water dispensers to quench guests' thirst. Better yet, guests can bring their own water bottles! Organic shampoos and bath gels in recycled containers will be featured in every bathroom in the hotel as well.

Guests will be able to enjoy cycling paths, hiking trails and other soon-to-be-revealed activities that will make guests feel one with nature. A 7.3 sq km playground surrounded by the forest is also available for children to play in the evenings. Adrenaline-fueled activities such as ATV driving, go-karting, paintballing, indoor snowboarding and more can be enjoyed by guests at X-Park, one of the largest adventure theme parks in Malaysia which is just a stone's throw away from the hotel. Legoland Malaysia is also only 3.3km away from the property too.

For shoppers, they can enjoy their time at Sunway Big Box Retail Park, a one-of-a-kind open-air mall that has a variety of restaurants, retail shops and home to the massive bookstore in Johor, Bookxcess! A true book lover's heaven for cheap books.
