Resorts World Genting (Part 3/4)- First World Hotel

First World Hotel has always been known for its two towers- Tower 1 and Tower 2. Now, the towers have a baby called Tower 2 Annex! Just kidding. First World Hotel now opens a third tower that adds 1286 more rooms to the world largest hotel making it a staggering amount of 7351 rooms. Having a multi-billion Ringgit tourism plan, including the most anticipated Twentieth Century Fox World, it is a sure thing that throngs of people will be drawn uphill. Genting cannot let their patrons sleep on the street, can they? 

I stayed on the 28th floor which is also the highest floor of Tower 2 Annex
I had a chance to spend a night at First World Hotel after the sensational Superstars of Magic 4 show. It was my first time at First World Hotel as other times I would be sleeping in the Presidential Suite in Maxim Hotel. Kidding again! For your information, Maxim Hotel is only reserved for royalties, VIPs, government officials (ahem!), celebrities and invited guests. 
Chic hotel lobby
The Tower Annex 2 is installed with a very contemporary and chic theme. It sends the perfect vibe for concert-goers and event attendees. This trendy 3-star hotel provides comfort and the essentials of a good accommodation. You should stay to enhance your entertainment experience in Genting Highlands. Usually people choose to stay to avoid rushing down from the highlands at night. First World Hotel is within walking distance to all of its facilities like the themeparks, Cineplex, casinos and dining outlets.

The XYZ Deluxe room’s interior is minimalistic offering standard necessities. The room is fun sized but do not underestimate it. It is complete with coffee making facilities, flat screen television, mini fridge, international charging port and even a safe box. The clothes hanging department comes simple but functional for storage.

The beds are comfortable with firm mattresses and plush pillows for a good night’s rest. The blankets are not as warm as I wished they were but I easily solved it by throwing in my jacket which I prepared for the highlands so, we could let that pass. Alternatively, switch off the baby fan and let the cool air outside subtly ventilate the room naturally.

The shower and toilet are separated by lime green frosted glass to allow multiple activities to run concurrently (wink!). Toiletries provided are limited to shower cap and hair cum body shampoo in a dispenser.

Rooms are sold without breakfast as visitors are spoilt with the many choices of eateries in the complex and all are in a stone’s throw away. However, to those who want to save the thinking and opt for a more convenient way to start their day, the First World CafĂ© serves reliable quality buffet breakfast. I must give a thumbs up for the wide spread of food, from western to asian. The asian section is further varied with a mix of Indian, Malay and Chinese selection. I came out satisfied and energized for my activities ahead.
