Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently get the opportunity to discover the Theme Park Hotel at Resorts World Genting, a unique family-friendly accommodation without the stereotypical look of hotel lobbies with chandeliers and tinkling fountains.
The Theme Park Hotel is aptly named as it is a mere stone’s throw away from the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox Malaysia Theme Park. The hotel has 456 rooms spanning 8 floors throughout the Main Wing and the Valley Wing.
I like the overall greenish feeling. The hotel lobby is splendidly decked out in massive trees that reach all the way up to the ceiling and seem to be lost amongst the ‘clouds’, while the check-in counter is inside a hot air balloon draped in vines that looks like it drifted away and came to find its home in the middle of the forest that is so high it hits the roof.
The quirky and playful décor is further expanded on the other areas of the hotel. Directional signs around the hotel are all ‘handwritten’. Line art and cartoons abound around the property. The corridor linking the two wings of the hotel features a floor with a hopscotch pattern on it so kids can indulge in exuberant play. A chic trick with the corridor lighting illuminates the space in a wash of coloured purple light. Room numbers are hand painted on the floor in front of each room that makes searching for your room a fun game for the little ones.
Most rooms at Theme Park Hotel feature a built in, Tatami-style raised platform on which are 2 queen sized beds which can comfortably hold 4 guests in the Quads Rooms.
A built-up bunk bed above the platform holds another queen sized mattress, effectively enabling 6 visitors in a room in the Sixers Rooms. There are also Kings rooms for a cosy night for travelling duos.
The raised sleeping platforms also serve as storage spaces. Compartments in the platforms are used to store luggage, while room safes are also built into the drawer space.
Clothes are hung on knobs around which artists have drawn outlines of closets. The television set too is hung on brackets, with artwork around it to make it seem that it is enclosed in a TV cabinet.
The goal of the ‘line of sight’ design theory is to have continuous, uninterrupted lines, straight lines to a clean ceiling which gives the impression of space.
If you want some romantic, there are 4 units of Honeymoon Suites that overlooks an uninterrupted panorama of the valley offering stunning views of natural mountain forests complete with a clawfoot tub in the living room. Designed around the 4 fun stages of romance – courtship, proposal, wedding and honeymoon – the suites are all executed as stand-alone units, unique in décor, feel and furnishing.
Feel hungry? You can get some quick eats and bites at Eatopia, a grab and go F&B outlet located at the hotel lobby. An assortment of bakery items, heat-and-go wraps and pastas, Malaysian staples like nasi lemak, sushi as well as hot and cold beverages are available for customers to choose from.
