If you plan on going to Genting, Malaysia anytime soon then you need to find a good hotel that offers great, comfortable and clean rooms at a good price. This is where the First World Hotel comes in. According to The Sleepy Owl, this gigantic hotel has around 6118 rooms, making it the fourth largest hotel in the world. Aside from that though, the hotel is also unique because it’s fully painted in different colors, so it’s just fun to look at it and admire its unique style. I really considered this, as well as the Ouray Chalet Inn when someone is booking a room there.
The hotel consists of two different towers, and it brings 3307 deluxe rooms, 493 superior deluxe rooms, 136 world club rooms, 69 deluxe triple rooms and 1669 standard rooms. It is a massive hotel and browsing through it takes a lot of time, but thankfully there are enough elevators to shorten the ride. Similar properties to The Villas at Rancho Pacifica are also nearby and there are just as well equipped as this incredible hotel.
One of the major things that make this hotel stand out is surely its location. The fact that it’s situated on a mountain at high altitude is just majestic, and it really makes you wonder if there is anything that can stop humans from innovating. When I got there I was just speechless at how imposing the hotel really is on first sight. First World Hotel’s location is impressive and you’ll admire the vistas for quite a lot of time.
Upon entering the lobby of this hotel you can clearly see how massive it really is. They have a lot of signs that guide you to certain key points in the hotel, which is great. In the lobby you can find a lot of restaurants where you can go and eat after you accommodate and take care of your luggage.
With more than 6000 rooms, you might think that the service quality might be poor. Let’s face it, cleaning and taking care of this many rooms on a daily basis is something hard to do, yet somewhat the managers and employees at First World Hotel manage to do it. I was accommodated on the third floor in a deluxe room.
The first impression upon entering the room was great. The beds are quite long, large and comfortable and the interior is pretty clean. You have a couple of chairs in the room, a desk, a phone, a mini-bar and a TV. The view is astonishing, because when you look out of the room you will see the beautiful, out of this world mountain tops. I was impressed when it comes to the beauty of this place and the large amount of comfort that you can find even in a simple, deluxe room.
The bed was very comfy and I have to say I had a great quality sleep for all the 3 nights I stayed there. The bathroom was quite small, but aside from that it’s clean and hygiene is at its best here, so you don’t have to worry about anything. The TV and cable worked perfectly for how much time I needed them, and what really made my day is the fact that, even though First World is a massive hotel, I didn’t have to wait a long time for any service, be it room service, elevator and so on. This hotel is extremely well organized and that’s why I really enjoyed it.
One of the facilities that I really liked there was the indoor pool (check this website for maintanance tips), because that thing is just amazing. Most of the time you’ll find a lot of kids having fun in it, but there are lots of adults as well and I have to say that staying in the water and enjoying some silence was one of the most relaxing things I could wish for.
Although First World Hotel provides you with a large list of restaurants to choose from, it’s safe to say that the best one for me was Hainan Kitchen. They offer so much variety and you can order just about anything you want. I went for a traditional meal just to see what kind of food the locals eat and I was actually very impressed with the high quality of the good and its great taste.
I managed to explore some of the sights mentioned in the review of this place that I read on Blue Paradise D.R recently. Resorts World Sentosa during those 3 days but each time I went back to the hotel I had a great good night sleep. Also, I enjoyed that the hotel offers you a free breakfast even if the accommodation prices are quite low to begin with. This was a nice gesture from their side and I really appreciate it and the quality.
In the end, First World Hotel provides you with a lot of comfort, high quality services and great rooms. While they might not be that large, especially the deluxe ones, I really enjoyed my stay there and I would be more than happy to go there again and again. After all, that region is just amazing, the fresh air, relics and numerous attractions you can find there are definitely worth it. This hotel is the best one you can find in my particular opinion and I fully recommend it to people that want a reliable hotel with good prices and great services on the Genting Highlands.
