Hotel On The Park
We all have very fond memories of the old Theme Park Hotel. Filled with many nostalgic moments through the generations the Theme Park Hotel was indeed a place that brought many happy memories for the entire family. The old Theme Park Hotel have now received a new look and design.
It is now reopened and called Hotel On The Park. Hotel on the Park is a boutique hotel that is not only affordable but filled with its fun and playful décor. In the past, they could only host 2 to 3 guest per room, 4 if you really squeeze it in. But now fear not, the new hotel can now host up to 6 people in a room.
The rooms are designed in a cute Tatami-style where the beds are on a raised platform. The platform itself holds many tricks, your luggage all goes into the slots and there is even a safe hidden to store all your valuables. As for the design of the room itself, everything reminds me of the home a certain cartoon character.
They may no longer have a hotel restaurant but there is a grab and go F&B outlet named Eatopia. It is a place for you to either grab and munch along the way or seat and view their back garden as you enjoy your coffee with a muffin or even a nasi lemak.
There are many places of interest around the hotel. At the back of the hotel, you are able to find a highly instagrammable spot and the Sky Avenue is just a mere 5 minutes walk away. Also try taking photos when it’s dark around the hotel, the red lights makes it feel very sci-fi.
The Newest mall in town is the SkyAvenue, currently holding more than 70 new retail and dining outlets. Spread across the mall is a spellbinding world-class LED display bound to make you feel like you’re transported into a different time. Here are a few other things for you to check out in the mall beside their shiny new Casino.
1. La Fiesta
La Fiesta which means The Party is an authentic Spanish restaurant located right in the Sky Avenue that hold up to 90 people.

Once you walk in pass the stain glass you will be greeted by the open kitchen where all the magic happens. Great place to dine and get lost in their music along some company.
Paella is one of the most popular and famous of global dishes, and every authentic Spanish restaurant needs good Paella. At the La Fiesta, they stayed true to their roots and presented to us a whole selection of mouthwatering dishes.
