KUALA LUMPUR: To boost domestic tourism, Sunway will be launching its “Ke Sana Ke Sini Ke Sunway” campaign on July 6.
This follows the Government’s allowance for interstate travel during the recovery movement control order period (June 10-Aug 31).
The campaign launch is timely as Sunway Lagoon Theme Park resumes full operations and opens its doors to the public yesterday.
The campaign will feature a limited number of exclusive tourism packages at a great price of 70% off its actual value at the internationally renowned Sunway City Kuala Lumpur.
At the rate of RM499, the Ke Sana Ke Sini Ke Sunway package includes a two-night stay at Sunway Pyramid Hotel for two adults and two children, entrance tickets to Sunway Lagoon for two adults and two children, and Sunway Pyramid cash vouchers worth RM200 to be redeemed at selected entertainment outlets.
The original value of this package amounts to RM1,599.
Customers can purchase the package from July 6 to 20 and utilise the package to visit Sunway City Kuala Lumpur from July 7 to Oct 31.
Sunway City Kuala Lumpur is one of Malaysia's must-visit destinations with a vast array of entertainment, leisure and lifestyle attractions seamlessly integrated across 323 hectares offering all-inclusive convenience.
With over 42 million visits every year, this wasteland-turned-wonderland city is also home to Asia's Best Attraction Sunway Lagoon theme park, the massive Sunway Pyramid mall and a collection of Sunway hotels with some 1,500 rooms.
Sunway Malls and Theme Parks chief executive officer HC Chan said: “Malaysia has fared well thanks largely to the containment efforts by all Malaysians in wake of the pandemic.
“As a gesture of support, Sunway offers this attractive package for much needed rest and rejuvenation.”
Chan shared that as a key tourism player, Sunway needs to do its part in restarting tourism domestically.
He added that this attractive package for the locals is also in line with the Government’s effort in rejuvenating the industry with the announced RM1,000 tax relief for domestic tourism.
“Many would be able to have fun and value-for-money vacations with family and friends at the Amazing Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, ” he concluded.
As businesses gradually reopen in the RMCO stage, Sunway has also placed hygiene and safety as its top priority and has implemented stringent measures across its premises to protect its staff, visitors and the community.
All Sunway premises, which include Sunway Pyramid Mall, Sunway Lagoon, Sunway Pyramid Hotel and other premises in the township, will uphold strict safety and hygiene best practices and policies.
These protocols are in line with the recommendations by the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organisation.
Sunway malls implement 82 safety measures
In line with Sunway Malls’ Your Safe Space, Our Safe Space motto, stringent measures have been enforced at all of its seven malls.
Procedures such as social distancing, regular checks, a holistic education and training for all staff and tenants, periodic cleaning, and enhanced screening and safety checks are set in place.

All these amount to more than 82 measures observed as the “new normal” for all of its malls.
Hand sanitiser stations have been placed at various areas throughout the malls, while frequent touch points such as handrails, lift buttons as well as door handles are sanitised every 45 minutes to prevent germs and bacteria from spreading.
To ensure play areas and all child-friendly amenities are germ-free, all surfaces in designated spaces are coated using Smartcoat nano coating technology.
This is an eco-friendly water-based coating that kills viruses, bacteria, mold, and fungal growth as well as enhances indoor air quality.
Friendly reminders are placed throughout the malls, with social distancing officers and customer care ambassadors to encourage shoppers to practise good hygiene and social distancing while in the mall.
Play it safe at Sunway theme parks
Since January this year, Sunway theme parks have ramped up precautionary measures to combat Covid-19.
All staff are required to fill a digital self-declaration form, have their temperature taken and wear face masks at all times and online theme park ticket purchases are encouraged – to ensure increased visitors’ safety.
Hand sanitisers are available throughout the parks, including before and after visitors’ animal feeding sessions at the Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park and Lost World of Tambun Petting Zoo.

Upon entering the theme parks, guests must be disinfected at disinfectant chambers.
Consistent water testing is also carried out at the waterpark attractions to ensure cleanliness.
In embracing the new norm, all queuing and seating areas as well as food outlets are demarcated to ensure social distancing.
All high touch-point areas are sanitised every two hours, while theme park rides will be sanitised each time after they are used.
Sunway Lagoon Theme Park officially opened all its parks yesterday.
Best hygiene practices at Sunway hotels
Sunway hotels have implemented the Sunway Safe Stay programme with almost 30 safety measures focusing on enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions and workplace protocols to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Extra protective barriers placed for precaution at Sunway Pyramid Hotel.
All hotel employees must wear protective masks and those handling luggage delivery and in food preparation, put on additional gloves.
Social distancing is observed at all times, for instance, queuing areas such as at the front desk, concierge, food and beverage outlets, cashier counters and guest elevators are all demarcated.
In public areas around the hotel, the furniture has been rearranged to maintain social distancing.
There is also more frequent cleaning of public areas, particularly high touch-point spots and hotel guests’ vehicles for chauffeuring services, using medical-grade disinfectants.
For each room, a notification on the front door will inform guests that a stringent cleaning and sanitising had been performed, with a focus on 10 high touch-point areas in the room.
Guest-room key cards are disinfected before and after use and for safety reasons, guests can opt to not allow any hotel employee to enter their rooms during their stay.
Health and hygiene reminders will be placed throughout the premises that also include proper ways to wear, handle and dispose of masks.
