The Theme Park Hotel in Resorts World Genting has finally re-emerge as Hotel on the Park last month after a full makeover. Formerly known as Highlands Hotel, Theme Park Hotel holds many nostalgic memories for generations of guests since it was built back in the 70s and known for its proximity to Malaysia’s only mountaintop amusement park.

When the amusement park was closed in 2013 to make way for the first-in-the-world Twentieth Century Fox World theme park, Theme Park Hotel took the chance to undergo a creative hotel expansion.
