Did you know that Sunway Pyramid has been around for 2 decades? That’s right! 21 years to be exact.
Sunway Pyramid is Malaysia’s first themed shopping and entertainment mall. Boasting 4 million square feet of retail extravaganza, the mall is architecturally spellbinding. Who doesn’t know the Egyptian-inspired Pyramid with its eye-catching domes and a majestic lion standing guard at the entrance?
We found out recently that the mall was upgraded and refreshed to create an enriching experience that continues to attract the young and old. In addition, there are new services and amenities for the ease, safety and comfort of shoppers from all walks of life.
With over 900 speciality outlets and a variety of activities, entertainment, F&B, fashion, home furnishing, health and wellness and a one-stop IT centre, there is something for everyone in the family.
WHY WE THINK IT’S GREAT FOR FAMILIES
1. Upgraded Main Entrance for Easier Access
The striking new entrance includes a level ground for improved wheelchair and stroller accessibility and a powerful air-lock system to beat the outside heat. Families may also book a Grab car at Asia’s first Grab lounge located just opposite the entrance. Along with the comfortable waiting lounge are dedicated waiting spaces for pick-ups and drop-offs.
Located at G Floor.
2. Family & Preferred Parking
Families with strollers and young children can make use of these well-lit, larger-than-usual parking bays that are near mall entrances and lifts to get the little ones into the mall easier. A new Preferred Parking area is also now made available.

6. New Baby Rooms
Be pleasantly surprised by the new baby rooms in Sunway Pyramid. Built with you and your child’s needs in mind, the spacious upgraded baby rooms come with educational wall toys and a toddler-friendly bench to keep the older children occupied while the little one is being changed or nursed in the private rooms. The baby rooms are equipped with a child-size toilet so parents and guardians will not have to step out when the toddler needs to go.
The rooms also come with air purifiers, Kimberly-Clark foam soap and hand sanitizers, Pigeon baby lotions, baby wash, and liquid cleansers, and Cuckoo hot/cold water dispensers for added convenience. You’ve got to applaud the ingenuity – they’ve really thought of everything!

We’ve all been there – a trip to the mall doesn’t mean you have to lug everything from home. Leave your home with the essentials and kids in tow, and borrow a stroller, toddler wheelie or even a double stroller. Load the kids and get ready to cover the distance!

8. Child Wristlinks & Emergency Contact Tattoos
