Situated along the Diamond triangle and opposite to Putra World Trade Centre, Sunway Putra hotel is adjacent to the new Sunway Putra shopping mall. Managed by the Malaysian conglomerate, Sunway Group, this trendy hotel is ideally located amidst all the major business centres, dining avenues and shopping arenas in Kuala Lumpur. Sunway Putra hotel is just 45 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, and is well connected to all parts of the city’s attractions such as Petronas Twin Towers, Bukit Bintang etc. One can either hire a taxi or take monorail or LRT to reach other locations from the hotel. The hotel is directly connected to the award winning Sunway Putra mall, which offers a plethora of options for shoppers.

These contemporary rooms have been classified under nine categories to accommodate the needs and requirements of business travellers, families and leisure travellers. The rooms come with all the modern facilities and comforts such as wifi, coffee & tea maker, mini refrigerator, laundry service etc. While the Superior rooms come with comfortable king size beds which are ideal for leisure travellers, the Deluxe rooms have a lovely décor with king size beds, a lounge chair and work table.

The club rooms and suites are suited for a relaxed stay and some come with a balcony, living space and multiple bedrooms.
There are three dining options in Sunway Putra Hotel apart from Cherootz, which is a bar. Coffee House is the main dining restaurant which serves a wide range of cuisines from Asian to Continental to Middle Eastern. While Gen is a Japanese restaurant, Atrium is a café that serves cakes, tea and coffee. The hotel also has a fitness centre with state of the art equipment for the guests to work out. The parabolic shaped outdoor pool is where the guests can have a dip and a swim. There is also a kid’s pool and a hot tub jacuzzi.

I stayed in Junior suite which was spacious and had a beautiful décor. The suite has a comfortable bed, attached bath, mini bar, television and all other basic facilities. The highlight was definitely the balcony which offered a magnificent view of the city skyline. The views of glittering Petronas Twin towers and KL Tower were a delight in the evening. It also offered a view of the swimming pool. I had buffet breakfast at Coffee house that had a nice mix of Indian and continental cuisines. As the visit was during the month of Ramadan, I also had a chance to relish a huge spread of the local cuisine while experiencing Iftar. A major attraction of Sunway Putra hotel is its direct link to the shopping mall, which has numerous brand outlets and dining options.
P.S.: I was hosted by Sunway Putra Hotel on an invitation from Malaysia Tourism board, but opinions are completely mine.
