The hill station, Genting Highlands, is a famous tourist spot in Malaysia. It has many popular attractions like Genting skyway, Chin Swee Temples, Casinos, and more. But, have you visited the Resorts World Genting of this hill station?
It's so much different than the other amenities of Genting Highlands. It's not only the luxury of the hotels, but the entertainment and fun factors also make it a famous tourist attraction.
I was skeptical about staying at the resort of the Genting Highlands at first. As the hill station already has so much to offer, staying at the resort felt unnecessary.
But trust me, the experience was so worth it! Accommodation is an essential part of the tour. You won't regret staying in one of their resorts.
The story behind Genting Group
The idea of this extraordinary resort over hills was Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong, the founder of the Genting Group. He is an inspiration to millions. He was already in his fifties when he had this idea.
He had forecasted a prosperous future of Malaysia and decided to build a soothing resort over those mountains.
The dense jungle made the idea of resort quite impossible. But, Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong was confident about his plan.
He devoted all of his time, capital, resources, and even family's resources to build his dream resort. The Government of the country was also impressed by this private sector. A gaming license was recommended to make the resort even better.
The first hotel started in 1971 (now the Theme Park Hotel), and since then, there is no looking back for Genting Group.
What is Resorts World Genting?
It is unlike any other resort that we are used to visiting. It is an integrated resort with many fold hotels, indoor and outdoor theme parks, shopping plaza, theatre, and so much more. It is like a small world itself.
There are so many things to do here that you will forget about the other parts of the hill station.
