We booked 2 Deluxe Rooms thru Genting website as we were Genting Worldcard members.. Upon check-in, we were being debited a RM400.00 deposit (refundable @ checkout). Please note there are 3 types of rooms available..Deluxe Twin/Premier Twin/Premier King (we were told there isn’t any king beds for Deluxe) On 5th & 6th floors are the Deluxe Rooms, ask for the valley view,otherwise you’il end up with no view. Premier rooms are on the 7th floors onwards. Room was spacious (if you compare to other hotels in Genting, like the FWH), there were 2 queen beds. However it does requires refurbishment – dated decor,worn-out furnitures, stained towels/bedsheets/coffee making cockery.
The big bathroom comes with separated shower & tiny toilet cubicle... from the bathtub you could access to the bedroom by unlocking the sliding windows.
Depending on your purpose in visiting Genting, the hotel location was directly below the casino, further away from the family amusement areas, but they do offers free shuttle services every 15mins to First World Hotel (where there are theme parks & more shopping), as well as to Chin Swee Cave on hourly basis, be sure to queue outside the hotel’s entrance just in front of the valet parking. Nice restaurants around but prices can be more expensive as compared to other places in Malaysia. If gambling isn’t your forte, there is a Starbucks coffeeshop at the lobby with free wifi, relax on a latte and enjoy the cool weather, bring a jacket, it could be windy at times.
Overall i wouldn’t say it was a nice stay, go for the renovated Resort Hotel or Theme Park Hotel for cosy, clean and comfortable rooms with modern furnishings. Check on Genting website for details.
