5 Reasons To Stay In Hotel On The Park At Genting Highlands

Take a group trip to Hotel On The Park, Genting Highland’s latest to cater to families and squads.

Genting Highlands – a world for the daydreamers and of course, the thriller seekers. For those who have been to the magical land of Genting Highlands, you must have had heard of the Theme Park Hotel, or maybe even by its former name, Highlands Hotel. It was built in the 1970s and was also the oldest hotel at Resort World Genting. In 2013, the hotel closed its door along with the Genting Outdoor Theme Park to make way for the construction of the first 20th Century Fox World.

Now the mountain-top institution has reopened with a brand new name – Hotel on the Park – a nod to its proximity to the first-in-the-world 20th Century Fox World theme park. The newly refurbished hotel maintains its original building with the same number of rooms, and previously, each room housed two to three guests. On the contrary, with the hotel’s new concept all you see is not all you get, as it can now house more guests than before!

In case you’re still not convinced, here are 5 reasons why Hotel On The Park is where you need to stay when visiting Genting Highlands.

1. (S)quads Rooms

A weekend trip with your gang to Genting Highlands can now be so much more fun with the Quads Room option at Hotel On The Park. Imagine a fun-filled night of hitting the poker table, hot chocolate at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and exchanging ghost stories from under the sheets. Not sure about you but we’re sold.

4. Location, Location, Location!

The elevated location of the hotel overlooks amazing landscaping work as well as lush jungle greenery.
Sidenote: Not all rooms may enjoy this view though.

So, this may not come as a surprise but we’re so smitten with the hotel, we’re throwing in a sixth pointer to show you why Genting On The Park is on the league of its own after all.

6. Magical Lobby

Remember Alice – the girl from the classic Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland, who fell down into a rabbit hole and at one point found everything to be bigger than her? Guess what, as soon as you walk into the hotel, you’ll feel the same. Except you won’t have to fall into any hole. There’s a gigantic bench enough for the whole family to sit on, a pillar of giant teacups stacked higgledy-piggledy all the way to the top, and the best part – a bank of trick mirrors ready to make you go nuts.
