We planned Genting hoping to experience water sports but all were gone in vain when we came to know that the waterpark was under renovation for past 2 years. So please make sure the motive of your visit to genting before you visit the place. It takes around 6 hours to reach Genting from Singapore by BUS.
Genting is a planned tourist spot which only has 3-4 hotels belonging to the Genting Highlands and water park (under renovation currently).
We reached our hotel at 6:30am in surprisingly chilling cold. The size of the hotel mesmerized us. I was huge construction with around 6000 rooms. We were hoping for an early checkin. But as luck has it, we had to wait along with 100's of people wishing to check-in. We waited for 4 hours before checking-in and got a room at 11:00am.
1 major reason for selecting the hotel was that we had booked the room at very descent price of around INR 2500/-. The double room which we got was a basic 2 bedded room with TV, Toiletries and Fan fitted in the room. No a great impression.
But the hotel has a indoor theme park, a BIG PLUS. We spent a our next 14 hours just exploring the hotel and playing around. It has snow world, Rope Way (longest i have seen in a while), BIG Gaming Zone, Many Rest., Ripleys Believe, Haunted House, Regulat Live Stage Shows and no. of restauranys and Brand Store to keep you busy. And lastly, CASINO made us lose money but was fun being there. So here it comes
Cost Effective Rooms
Indoor Theme Park (day pass: 50RM - Rides)
Long Wait for Checkin (if willing to check-in early)
Basic Rooms - Not much attractive
Not places to Roam around in close sorroundings
At the end of the day the visit to Genting was worth for us as a group of 5. But we couldn't have spent an extra without getting bored for sure.
