Hotel On The Park, Resorts World Genting

Hotel On The Park is the new hotel at Resorts World Genting replacing the old Theme Park Hotel. This new hotel is suitable for families or a group of friends to stay because there are mostly quad sharing and sixers rooms. This hotel was designed with more beds as Resorts World Genting is expecting an influx of visitors with the soon to be opened Twentieth Century Fox World.

There is a giant bench for customers to sit and a high pile of giant tea cups stacked up to the ceiling. There is also a trick mirror at the hotel lobby where I took many photos.

There are still 448 rooms with no structural changes but the new design makes the rooms look more spacious and very cute. My family stayed in the sixers room. There are a total of 3 queen sized beds. I loved the upper level of the bunk bed. There is luggage storage space below the raised sleeping platforms. What a great space saving idea!

I love the cute designs in the rooms especially the TV cabinet. In lieu of expensive heavy drapes and curtains, artists pitched in to hand draw designs in white paint on blackout roller blinds, resulting in original works of art in every room.

Cute hand drawn pictures are on the walls too. 

The bathrooms are separate rooms for the shower and toilet. There are 2 sinks so visitors do not need to fight if they want to use the sink at the same time.

Here are some photos of the quad sharing room type.

There are also rooms for the disabled. These rooms are more spacious for people on wheel chairs.

There are also honeymoon suites located in the valley wing which overlooks an uninterrupted panorama of the Genting valley offering stunning views of natural mountain forests. The suites designed around the four fun stages of romance - courtship, proposal, wedding and honeymoon are all executed as stand-alone units.

36-Hours Food Trail at Sky Avenue Restaurant, Resorts World Genting

Recently, my mommy brought my brother and I to Sky Avenue for the 36-hours food trail at 28 restaurants. We were very happy to be able to try so many different types of food but I think the time was too short. I was very full after eating at the first few restaurants. 

We visited Starbucks Reserve, Morganfield's, Inside Scoop, Tian Ma Bird Nest, Koong Woh Tong, I Love You, KyoChon 1991, DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe, Babajia, WanHoi Yamch'a, RichDad, Just Heavenly, Tampopo. Tai'Bae, Madame Waffle, Go Noodle House, Ah Yip Herbal Soup, BMS Organics, Canton-i, Tokyo Secret, Palsaik Korean BBQ, dal.komm Coffee, San Francisco Coffee, PappaRich, Flavurs, Zok Noodle House, Dome and Royale Vietnam.

I will mention on the restaurants that I really liked. For more information on this food trail review, please visit my mommy's blog at www.yeelinda.blogspot.my

DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe had very nice Super Heroes comic decorations on the tables, chairs, walls, menu, small figurines on display and even human size Super Heroes statues was one of my favourite because I loved themed restaurants. I believe all children love themed restaurants. 

We had Mera's Ocean Magic which was Seafood Spicy Spaghetti and Katana Sliced Hawaiian Pizza and drinks. All the food and drinks came on plates with the Super Heroes logo or have shapes of Super Heroes logo on the food. It was very cool and I loved it. 

I also liked the Chinese dimsum restaurant, WanHoi Yamch'a because the food tasted very delicious and they had those cute Custard Pau, BBQ Pork Bun and Salted Egg Yolk with Lotus Paste Fillings which were in the shape of birds in a cage. These were so cute, I did not feel like eating them. We took lots of photos with these cute and delicious dimsum food.

I also loved the extraordinary and unique food at Royale Vietnam  which serves authentic Vietnamese cuisine. I had never seen prawns served on a coconut with fire. This dish was the flaming prawns which tasted very delicious. The coconut water tasted different from normal coconut water and the prawns had some slight burnt taste which made it tastier.

The other really tasty dish was very nicely decorated. There were a mixture of Fresh Spring Roll, Fried Spring Roll, Summer Roll with Prawn, Sugarcane Prawn and Fried Chicken. You have got to try this dish if you dine here. 

My family and I visited Korea a few months back and when I saw Palsaik Korean BBQ, it reminded me of the time I dined at the same restaurant but at a different branch in Seoul. I loved the BBQ meat which was marinated in 8 different flavors namely ginseng, wine, pine, garlic, herb, curry, soy bean and hot pepper. Besides the BBQ meat, I was very happy to try Japchae (stir fried glass noodles with vegetables and pork slices) because it was so delicious I had to take the balance home. Since everyone was so full and could not finish it, I told mommy that I wanted to pack it home for lunch the next day. 

I had the tastiest porridge at Canton-i which I never tasted anywhere else. Even though I was very full, I still finished it because it was too delicious. The wontons were very big with prawn fillings. I also loved the Roast Goose and Roast Pork Belly, the skin was so crispy and the meat was very tasty and tender. 

For desserts, I loved Inside Scoop where I had waffle with ice-cream.

Madame Waffle gave us 2 smaller waffles with bananas and ice-cream. This was very delicious too.

My brother loved to eat the Tokyo Secret cheese tarts and cheese cakes.

Not forgetting the famous Tian Ma Bird Nest which I loved very much. The bird nests was very nice to drink but I had to add more sugar because I loved mine sweeter.

Clockwise from the top : Signature Double Boiled Bird's Nest, Bird's Nest with Pear, Bird's Nest with Ginseng Tea

Koong Woh Tong served herbal jelly and herbal tea. We finished ours very fast because my family loves to eat herbal jelly.
