This is not just a hotel... it is a mini paradise. The hotel is connected to all the theme parks, hotels, and gambling casinos via convenient shopping arenas. We found the whole genting heights development an outstanding achievement. Our cable ride to the heights was itself one of the best experiences for our family.
We have to applaud the chinese owners who have developed genting height so professionally. Whe we went there - the resort was enveloped in a light mist and drizzle. This is a super 5 star resort. i wish they will develop something like this near khandala/lonavala in india too.It can be done .

We just spent a nite in the Genting Grand yesterday(16.9.2013). The rebranded genting grand was formerly the Genting Highland Hotel. It was the oldest and first hotel in malaysia granted a casino licence and was the only and tallest structure in genting highland then. The hotel had very spacious rooms and very good layout of facilities and it was the best (in my opinion ) hotel in the genting resort.
The rooms' rates were not cheap unless you were their regular big time casino players where you could great discount or free accommodation. The check-in was fast and there was no big crowd awaiting for check-in unlike the crowd in First world hotel. The morning buffet spread was good beside you could also get a good breakfast, lunch and dinner within the hotel complex

Room Tip: Every room has good view of the surrounding

Its a huge huge hotel with hundreds and hundreds of rooms. Hence there is no concept of a room service or house keeping if you ask for. You may get lost in this entire place. rooms are too cramped and if one family has to stay then probably one of them will have to sit and sleep. the only advantage is that it is right at the indoor theme park and outdoor theme park so you dont have to travel anywhere. if you are coming through the cable car then you will have to walk a long long distance to reach this hotel. Guide is a must to walk from the cable car station to the hotel else you may get lost somethere.

All the staffs we met are very friendly. We have been staying here many times. The room are spacious and cosy. The bed are very comfortable. After upgrading , now they provide free wifi in the room. We had a pleasant stayed. If we do visit Genting again, Genting Grand will be definitely our first choice.

Last minute check in when we decided quite late to stay for the night with no previous reservation!
Paid using Genting points so excellent value.
Warm welcome back at reception and given really nice suite...room 15008. As per previous review suite at end of corridor, bedroom one side, lounge on the other and bathrooms in between.
Room now has free Wi Fi which was an amenity much missed on previous stays.
Comfy bed and great nights sleep.
Coffee machine, kettle, well stocked fridge, fruit tray and free basket of goodies, chocs, chips & mints.
Excellent stay after the reported problems last time.
Still our favourite hotel in Genting

Hi every one..
I stayed here one night and 2days..
Actually everywhere i saw the check in time was 2 P.M afternoon...But here i check in by 10 A.M in the morning through KIOSKS....and check out was so simple just insert key card..
So no need of wasting times and everything..if already our room was confirmed...
This was the biggest hotel and having Guinness record of having more than 6000 rooms in a hotel...
The room was so clean and good...having with a fan...and washroom was so nice....we can get both hot and cold water all the time...electric locker and wardrobe...also available in the room..
We can find everything like small fridge and t.v. and hair dryer and complimentary water 2 bottles per day..
Everyday they will come and clean our room by 12-1 p.m..whether we were in the room or not...they will do their work..
No worry about our luggage and items..
The bed was so good..Our room was deluxe room..
We get complimentary breakfast too...We can find all types of foods over there..
Very nice view from the room........
Almost all the time the hotel was covered by Clouds...
Because of that colors outside we can view this hotel from long areas......
The climate was amazing..
The value for money and full security with high speed lifts..
We stayed in 25th Floor in tower 2..
So the view was good..
I am happy with the service and hotel....no worry about check in and check out...if we have little knowledge we can prefer kiosks to check in and check out...so you feel good..
If we find any problem they will help us...at reception counter...
If you are planning to enjoy at Genting...I will recommend this 4star Hotel....
Even trip advisor also recommend i think so...

Room Tip: Top floors with outside view...so that you can enjoy the theme park view and nature...
