Staying at Theme Park Hotel: The Cutest Hotel in Resorts World Genting, Malaysia – For Jakarta citizens, heading to Soekarno – Hatta Airport for traveling becomes a vital preparation as the airport is located far away from the downtown and we need to reach the airport as early as possible to avoid unwanted things happen on the way.
After arriving at the airport, my fellow Indonesia influencers, my brother, and I headed to Kuala Lumpur by Air Asia scheduled to take off at 08:35 AM and expected to arrive at 11:35 AM in Kuala Lumpur.
We were then joint by fellow influencers from Thailand and we headed right to Genting Highlands by a chartered bus.
It took approximately 2 hours from KLIA2 Airport to Resorts World Genting. Since my brother and I woke up so early to prepare this trip, we were like fainted people in the bus sleeping all the way and even didn’t feel the winding road up to Genting Highlands.
When entering Resorts World Genting area, I was like awakened up and found out that we finally arrived at the hotel. The hotel named Theme Park Hotel has a cute and eye-catching decor.
This hotel became our home for 4 days 3 nights during our adventure in Resorts World Genting. You can find affordable prices on Agoda for the reservation, as it always offers some promos.
My first impression of this hotel was comfortable. The long and tiring journey that drained my energy out was vanished instantly after taking my rest in this comfy hotel.
For your knowledge, before given a name as Theme Park Hotel, this hotel was formerly known as Hotel on The Park, and the name was officially changed to Theme Park Hotel as of 1 November 2017.
Forgive me for attaching a photo with the old name as we visited the hotel when it was not changed yet.
A reason behind the name change is because the hotel location is at the doorsteps of the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park and it is expected to be the first and the largest Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park in the world. Wow!
After taking some pictures around the hotel, we were welcomed with some snacks and drinks from Eatopia, located in the hotel lobby.
You will be greeted by a pillar of higgledy-piggledy stacked giant teacups which reach the ceiling, a giant bench for visitors to sit on while waiting for check-in, and also a bank of trick mirrors that has some chairs around it. You can take pictures of you reflecting from the trick mirrors.
While having our snacks, we did our check-in and prepared ourselves for the first activity which was room inspection. In the room inspection session, we were asked to stroll around the hotel and were introduced to the types of room this hotel has.
Theme Park Hotel has two distinct types of room:
The sixers rooms have three queen-sized beds (including a bunk bed) in a 300 sq ft space. These rooms accommodate up to six people. For this type, you will be charged from RM400 – RM500 per room per night. When peak seasons, this hotel room costs even more than RM600 per night.
For a slightly smaller group, you can choose Quads rooms that have two queen-sized beds and can accommodate up to four people in an approximately 260 sq ft space. These rooms cost RM300 per room per night, but the fee can be up to RM500 per night during peak seasons.
Facilities that this family-oriented hotel offers are such as in-house video, in-house radio, telephone, IDD access, tea and coffee making facilities, kettle, open top safe-box, standing shower for warm and cold water complete with towels and toiletries, TV, mini fridge, bottles of mineral water, free room Wi-Fi, bedroom slippers, fan, two chairs, power outlets, and compartments.
Compartments in the platforms are used to store your luggage, while room safes are built into the drawer space.
Other than complete facilities, this hotel is clean and always cleaned up once a day and your mineral bottles are refilled by the janitors.
Generally, hotels only provide two bottles of mineral water, but I would say Theme Park Hotel management is generous to provide four bottles of mineral water each day.
These rooms have quirky and playful decor that is bound to bring a smile to your face. Each room has a different color, they are pink, yellow, and blue navy.
The view from your room can be different depending on which side of the room it takes place.
Each person of us got one room with quads type though every room has two beds. So it made our stay more private and tranquil. Realizing that Genting air is cold, I almost didn’t turn the fan on. So don’t expect to have AC!
By chance, I got a pink-themed room facing to the front side of the hotel with room views of First World Hotel and moving gondolas so before sleeping I got to enjoy the soothing view.
If you love reading, this room is also equipped with a reading lamp between the two beds.
I highly recommend you to turn the lights off and open the painted curtains while tucking into the blanket in the cold night, really comfy!
With all complete facilities, there is a tiny shortage of this hotel that it doesn’t provide breakfast for the visitors. So you should grab your breakfast at a-grab-and-go Eatopia in the lobby.
It is clearly evident in its offerings which include an assortment of bakery items, heat-and-go wraps and kinds of pasta, Malaysian staples like nasi lemak, sushi and hot and cold beverages.
Theme Park Hotel is suitable for families and groups of friend who prefer to stay together in one room. As they say, the more the merrier. So, no single bed is available here.
Most rooms feature a built-in, tatami-style raised platform on which are two queen-sized beds which can comfortably hold four guests. Every room has its connecting door enabling family and friend members to access each room.
- Before being named Hotel on The Park and then changed again to Theme Park Hotel, this hotel was formerly known as Highlands Hotel and built in the seventies. It is the oldest hotel in Resorts World Genting.
- There are no structural changes on the cards, only the design and decor have been newly-revamped to make it more attractive and unique.
- The hotel still retains 448 rooms and has 8 floors with new concept namely “all you see is not all you get”, with only 271 rooms at its main block, you can be assured of a comfortable stay with family and friends.
