Gosh, time flies! Not very happy bout this cos it means I’m getting older T_T
Without realizing, it’s been almost 3 years since my last visit to Genting as a blogger.
Resorts World Genting is undergoing a major face-lift at the moment with new accommodations and restaurants were being revamped for a more exciting dining experience.
Resorts World Genting – First World Hotel
Since the crowd at Genting can be quite overwhelming during weekends and school holidays, check-in is made more efficient with the e-kiosk self check-in system that enables you to make new reservation on the spot and check-in after pre-paid advance booking using your membership card, MyKad or passport.
They have recently purchased new self check-in machines that can accommodate more customization such as request for connecting rooms, smoking/non-smoking room, etc. In the near future, this new machine will replace the old ones.
The system comes with duo language – English and Chinese. There are currently 29 units of e-kiosk at First World Hotel; 23 units at Tower 1 lobby and 6 units at Tower 2 Annex lobby. Checking out is also made convenient with checkout e-kiosk. There are 15 units of checkout machines at Tower 1 and 4 units at Tower 2 Annex.
Among the transformations at Resort World Genting are the opening of Tower 2 Annex, an extension to Tower 2. Phase 1 of the extension opened with 412 rooms and the balance of 874 is targeted to open very soon, bringing the total of rooms to 1,286. The overall number of rooms will ultimately be 7,351 – making it one of the largest hotels in the world.
Along the connecting hallway, guests will be awed by the breathtaking scenery of highlands and the contemporary setting in the lobby, complete with 3D television visuals and a designer feature wall. Newly opened Terminal 2 Cafe features freshly baked pastries, soups, snacks and beverages from 7.30 am to 12 am with complimentary wi-fi service.
The Tower 2 Annex has a total of 1,286 brand new rooms with names such as XYZ Deluxe and XYZ Triple. The size of these rooms is approximately 170.7 sq. ft. The difference between them is XYZ Deluxe Room offers either 2 single beds or 1 queen bed whilst XYZ Triple offers 1 single bed and 1 queen bed.

The most distinct feature that XYZ Rooms have is lime green frosted glasses that act as dividers between the toilet, shower and basin for convenience of guests.
Now, let’s take a tour to other room types at First World Hotel, Genting Highlands. We’ll start with the room that I love most: World Club Room @ Tower 1.

Genting First World Hotel Superior Deluxe Room
Superior deluxe room comes with a queen size bed and a single bed.
I love the fact that they provide free water for guests. It’s easy to find water dispenser along the corridor of your room.
I’m really looking forward to the Twentieth Century Fox World Theme Park that is scheduled to be completed around end of 2016. There will be lots of exciting rides inspired from movies such as Titanic, Night at the Museum, Rio, Ice Age, Alien vs. Predator and Planet of the Apes.Besides, a premium mall called Sky Avenue will also open its doors in mid 2016.After a busy day touring around First World Hotel, we went to Rajawali Coffee House @ Awana Genting Hotel to buka puasa with our Malay blogger friends. It’s buffet dinner yo! Fat die me liao…
After a heavy meal, I hiked up to Genting Grand with Clumsy Boy and chanced upon this mesmerizing water feature in front of the hotel! I just can’t wait to go back to Genting again for a short getaway ^_^
