Hotel on the Park, Genting Highlands

Formerly known as Theme Park Hotel. But after the refurbishment, it is now known as Hotel on the Park.

Hotels at Genting Highlands are selling fast, especially on weekends.

We planned this almost one month ahead. This newly opened hotel started operating on early July 2017.

It was a short family trip to escape from the hot weather. HAHAHA 😀

Hotel on the Park is a boutique hotel perfect for those who like to stay together. For the first time, Resorts World Genting is offering rooms which can accommodate up to six people.

Before checking in to our respective hotel, while on our way up hill..we pay a visit to Genting Highlands Premium Outlets. Quite crowded too. There’s still queue for Coach Outlet. The selections of brands are not bad. From average to above average depending on your budget.

 

I managed to book The Sixers (3 queen-sized beds (including a bunk bed). Accommodates maximum of 6.) at a price of RM440 (exclusive breakfast). You can get it cheaper sometimes. Price may varies weekly too.

Room Layout

The Sixers is suitable for friends or family gathering.

Check-in time: 3.00pm
Check-out time: 12.00 noon

Also available is Quads rooms which have two queen-sized beds and can accommodate up to four people in an approximately 260 sq ft space. Another room option for smaller group of people.

The hotel lobby at 6pm. Hence you see it quite empty.

The check in process was quite fast during my arrival time. However an amount of RM200 is required as deposit. But it is refundable upon checking out.

There were 3 working lifts (1 is blocked by the wall).

Food and drinks Vending Machine at the hotel room corridor. I seriously don’t know why they uses purple lights for the corridor. It looks creepy to walk alone. (think too much)

The lil kepochi is curious about the vending machine. Nicely choosing what he wants.

My room number was #3434 😀

Lift and room is only accessible via room access card.

 

 

It does not disappoint me that the room is exactly the same as shown on the web. Probably because it is still new. It looks neat and clean. Very cute and cheerful room, I thought.

Queen size mattress is laid on the raised wooden platform of tatami style.

There’s also compartment for you to store some small luggage.

A Queen size bunk bed. However a tall person has to be careful with their head, due to the low headroom. 😀

Room facilities:-

In-house Video/In-house Radio/Telephone/IDD Access/Tea & Coffee Making Facilities/Kettle/Open Top Safe-Box/Standing Shower/TV/Mini Fridge/Mineral Water/Free Room Wi-Fi/Bedroom Slippers/Fan/Hair Dryer

The open bathroom has 2 wash basins.

Shower area and toilet are separated. There are no wall hooks inside the shower area. Therefore I find it quite inconvenient. Where to hang my clothes le? Unless I undress myself before entering the shower area.

(No complain about the water pressure and temperature 🙂  )

Bathroom toiletries such as Bath Gel, Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap, Shaver, Cotton buds, Tooth Brush and Shower Cap are provided.

View from our room (Cable Car & First World). Lots of on-going constructions.

Hotel on the Park at night.

Since the hotel does not have a restaurant, we decided to walk to Sky Avenue which took around 10 minutes on foot.

A covered pedestrian corridor linking the hotel to Sky Avenue.

Sky Avenue, claimed as shopping and dining at 6,000 feet with more than 70 retail and dining outlets opened so far.

On top of that, Sky Avenue also boasts a world-class LED display that spreads across an entire atrium within the mall.

The Sky Casino is also adjoined to Sky Avenue. Have any of you tried Burger & Lobsters? I saw the prices ain’t cheap. But the queue is fantastic. Be it late night or early morning, there are people queing for it. I wonder what is the average waiting time or best time to visit.

Stay tune to my next post on my dinner post. 
A place worth checking out.

The hotel rate does not include breakfast. But you can get some quick bites from Eatopia, located at the hotel lobby.

Bring along your Genting member card. Because you could save some ringgits on each item. Do check out the Nasi Lemak Ayam (RM8-member price, RM9-non member), which tasted good I felt. Apart from the Nasi Lemak, Croissant with Tuna was nice too.

This hotel has several photo spots.

One of the favorite spot has to be this mirror effect one. You gotta get a quick shot. There will be people waiting for their turn.

 

Verdict: A fun boutique hotel with reasonable rates. Sleeping quality was alright. But light sleeper may think otherwise , if your room is facing the road. You may hear the sound of racing bikes. The hotel does not have its own parking lot. Therefore the nearest place to park your car is at Resort Hotel’s parking lot (within walking distance).
