About Resorts World Genting - First World Hotel, Genting Highlands

Perched high in the Titiwangsa Mountains an hour outside of Kuala Lumpur, Resorts World Genting - First World Hotel is the flagship hotel for the Genting Highlands gaming resort. Many guests choose to make the final ascent to the hotel via the Genting Skyway--a 10-minute gondola ride up the mountainside. The Genting's casino and dozens of restaurants are all located inside the hotel or within a 5-minute walk.

If the Genting Highlands is a city unto itself, First World Hotel is its biggest neighborhood. This hotel has 2 on-site restaurants, several fast-food stops including a Starbucks, and a pan-Asian food court. Hainan Kitchen Restaurant is a 24-hour eatery offering Hainanese cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Enjoy Asian noodle dishes well into the night at Hou Mei Noodle House. Room service is available 24 hours.

Genting's expansive 200,000-square-foot casino offers table games, slots, and VIP rooms 24 hours a day. A wide range of musical, theater, and acrobatic performances are showcased nightly at Arena of the Stars, featuring international and local acts. Newly released films are screened at the hotel's 2 movie theaters. The hotel also houses express check-in via self-service kiosk and several meeting and banquet spaces, including a grand ballroom capable of accommodating up to 4,000 people. Self-parking is available for all guests for a surcharge.

Guestrooms are located in one of the hotel's 2 towers, offering views of the surrounding mountains.
