Hey there! Welcome to my #BigLittleBreak. For those of you that missed the blog post about G…click here. I was so excited last week as one of my closest friends from university, Tania Davenport decided to come visit Malaysia for the first time with her family from London. She asked me for recommendations on hotel stay and other exciting things that she could do here. Without hesitation I told her I would help her book her accommodation. As she was travelling with her parents and younger sister, and looking to please everyone in the family with some shopping, great local cuisine and sightseeing too, I decided to book her into Sunway Pyramid Hotel at Sunway City.
For those of you who don’t know, Sunway Pyramid Hotel is located just steps away from the famed Sunway Pyramid mall and Sunway Lagoon theme park. It’s really a very nice hotel as it was fully renovated recently and is the only hotel within the vicinity that offers both Family Rooms and Family Suites. Casually browsing through their website to see if they had any special promotions, I was amazed to find this little secret i.e. a whole list of benefits offered via Book Direct & Save on the hotels website.
The spacious Family Suite at Sunway Pyramid Hotel
For starters, there’s an exclusive members rate when you book directly through the hotel’s website. So for the Family Suite we saved up to 30% off the room rates which was an awesome surprise. There’s even savings up to 20% off when you book any of the other room types at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Sunway Pyramid Hotel and Sunway Clio Hotel. Tania was very pleased and even told me that upon arrival, there was a special Book Direct & Save (BDS) lane for members and it was such a relief after the long flight as there was no hassle for check-in.
Besides this, members also are entitled to a 15% discount on meals when you dine-in any of their outlets located in the three (3) hotels. As it was a long journey to get to Kuala Lumpur, Tania said her parents were really grateful for the complimentary 15-minute shoulder massage offered by Mandara Spa, the Balinese spa located just a short walking distance from the hotel. In-fact, they were so impressed with the service and ambience that they decided to stay longer and indulge in a relaxing Balinese body massage which was “heavenly”. Other member benefits include late check-out*, free shopping and dining vouchers worth over RM2000 and complimentary premium Wi-Fi.
Overall Tania and her family had a wonderful time in Sunway City and sung praises about their experience during their holiday here. They are already planning to make it their annual holiday destination!
