Basically for those who are going to Genting Highlands will stay in this hotel. Why? Cheaper rate of course. The other hotels (like Genting Grand, Maxims and Resorts) are expensive and some rooms are reserved for their gold and above card members because they are VIPs and of course top spenders at the Casino. Check in was OK with the... More

I have been there for couple of times. But this time I am not satisfied. May be because of their construction work. Not sure but this time I got a very small room. Food is also not that good this time(indian food) One thing what I liked is their automated process to checkin n checkout is a cool process. Also... More

The rooms were okay, but the view of the misty hills from the room was breathtaking. The food was okay as well. But the upside is that the whole place was bustling with so much of activity. Its got a lot to offer. Great shows, great rides at the amusement park and nice food. We had a good time.

Our room is on the 27floor, it was huge, beautiful and new, unlike their standard and deluxe rooms, which were too tired looking. The bathroom is big and modern (I chose the one w/o bathtub) with complete sets of towels and... More

I stayed 2 nights in this large hotel and this was on August 2014.The location of the hotel is great. The hotel is under huge renovation but that did not stop us from enjoying the cool weather and variety of shops at the plaza. The outdoor theme park is currently closed for massive renovation and will be for many months... More

We had given the deluxe room at tower 2 floor 27th, and my sister was given the room at floor 14th. Both were deluxe rooms, but the space was different. Our room space was narrow and set up fewer furniture and bathroom accessories. Without hand tower too. The Tv also smaller. No mineral waters were giving. But my sister room... More
