Iskandar Puteri, March 11, 2016 – is proud LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort to announce that it has clinched first place in the prestigious TripAdvisor® Award, as part of the Top 10 Travellers’ Choice hotels for families.
This comes as a huge leap for LEGOLAND Malaysia, jumping to first place this year from number 10 last year. Besides getting nominated in the Malaysian category, the hotel also placed sixth for the Asia category, and was the only Malaysian hotel on the list.
TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site, enabling travellers to plan and book the perfect trip. Based on millions of reviews and opinions from travellers around the world, The Travellers’ Choice awards are the highest honour TripAdvisor can bestow. These annual awards reflect “the best of the best” for service, quality, and customer satisfaction, from hotels and accommodations to destinations, attractions, and even brands and products. The winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews as well as ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions in destinations worldwide.
This awards comes just two months after the resort was also awarded the Best Tourism Attraction in the Man-Made Attraction category for the inaugural Malaysia Tourism Awards 2016. The resort was awarded based on creativity of product development; popularity, cleanliness and maintenance of the attraction; type of facilities available; positive feedback from visitors; displays of Malaysian cultural elements; and value for money.
“Having been nominated before and emerging as the top 10 in Asia has truly been an honour. We are grateful and humbled by the support everyone has given us, and none of this would have been made possible without the Resort team who are dedicated to providing nothing but the best. At LEGOLAND Malaysia, we continue to strive to improve and go the extra mile, and seeing the efforts of everyone being paid off, it has spurred us on to continue being the best we can be. We hope to continue being a destination for families to create fond memories.” says Mark Germyn, General Manager of LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort.
The Park, which opened in 2012 is fully committed to adding new attractions every year, and since its launch has added the highly acclaimed Water Park and LEGOLAND Hotel, alongside the Star Wars Miniland, the Ninjago: Realm of Shadows Live show, with many more to come over the next few years.
What’s New in the Park
It’s the attention to detail and keeping the interest of Park guests in mind that has helped the Park to win these awards, and this comes from initiatives like extending the operating hours of the LEGO® Wave Pool in the Water Park until 9pm starting from 11 March, every Friday and Saturday. Guests can expect a fun time with their family with various party themes, exclusive LEGO® character appearances, and unleashing their inner rockstar with karaoke night. They’ll also be able to bond over games such as tube racing, Build-A-Raft and building a brick tower! This initiative was borne out of the Resort listening to the requests from guest on providing a family friendly hangout at night.
To further thrill guests, earlier in March, the Park welcomed the addition of the new LEGO® Movie™ 4D: A New Adventure screening exclusively at the LEGO Studio. While later in the year, visitors can also look forward to the new Ninjago ride, which will be the park’s biggest investment to date, and will be at the heart of the new Ninjago land.
Extended hours for the LEGO® Wave Pool
Beginning 11 March, every Friday and Saturday, the LEGO® Wave Pool located in the Resort’s Water Park will be opened until 9pm. Food will be available at the Surf Shop and Beach Grill with an exclusive promotion, for 20% off all food & beverage during the extended opening hours. Ticket prices for late entry into the Water Park from 5 – 9pm will be priced at 50RM, upgrades at 30RM for all existing ticket types (including Annual Pass Holders and hotel guests).
