Genting Highlands Hotels

Stroll through the clouds in the streets of Malaysia’s highest resort, play games of chance in the casino 6,000 feet above sea level, and rattle along the rails of the theme park roller coaster before shopping ‘till you drop in its outlandish mall, Genting Highlands is Malaysia’s remarkable mountain-top resort that’s truly out of this world.

Things to see

Colorful, and somewhat gaudy in places, the Genting Highland Resort is a masterpiece of construction and engineering, and an exciting playground for tourists and Malaysian city escapees. Known as the Fun City Above the Cloud, it perches on its elevated mountainside, staring back down the valley towards Kuala Lumpur, daring visitors to come and have fun. The brightly decorated malls of the First World Plaza resemble the garish interior of popular theme parks, little wonder since it’s home to one of its own. Fashionable boutiques thread their way between the clattering rails of lofty roller-coasters, music blares from flashing dodgem cars, and trendy food halls fill the air with the aroma of Malaysian delicacies. At the Genting Strawberry Leisure Farm you can stroll through lanes of stacked strawberry plants, picking their juicy berries as you go. If that all seems like too much hard work, the cozy café serves a selection of mouthwatering dishes featuring the vivid red produce, from chocolate-coated morsels to freshly baked flans. And at the Arena of Stars, with a canopied roof that’s every bit as colorful as the Mall next door, international music sensations, and traveling comedians, delight enthusiastic crowds in this elaborate 5,000 seat amphitheater.

Where to stay

There aren’t many neighborhoods to the Genting Highlands, and there aren’t many streets either. The few winding roads carved through the mountainous jungle bring you to the heart of this exciting sky-top resort, where brightly colored malls, and towering hotels extend their views even further across the lush valley floor below. It’s an exciting theme park in the clouds, and hotels in Genting Highlands are all part of the fun. Find yourself a room overlooking the main resort and you’ll see colorful pedalos splashing on the lake, and crowds of people queuing for its dedicated thrill rides.

How to get to Genting Highlands

Kuala Lumpur International Airport brings international visitors to within a 45 minute drive of Genting Highlands. Buses, taxis, hire cars, and shuttle buses all run this mountain route, so there are plenty of ways to go. If you’ve got a little extra time, though, and definitely a head for heights, there’s a rather spectacular alternative to try. Take the journey as far as Awana and then hop aboard a cable car for a lift up the mountainside and fabulous scenery.
