The Genting Story
It all began in 1965 with Genting Highlands Resort on the lush, tropical highlands of Malaysia. Our ambitious founder, the late Tan Sri (Dr.) Lim Goh Tong, transformed 10,000 acres of dense, impenetrable forest, 6,000 feet above sea level, into the largest resort in the world.
Today, this magnificent resort is called Resorts World Genting and is one of Malaysia’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting almost 20 million visitors a year.
Hospitality on a grand scale
You can choose from the resort’s five hotels, offering around 10,000 rooms in total. They include Maxims Hotel, Genting Grand, Resort Hotel, Awana and First World Hotel – one of the world’s largest hotels with 6,118 rooms.
There’s also a stunning casino, an 18-hole golf course, more than 200 dining and retail outlets, mega shows, business convention facilities and endless entertainment. All at this one resort, where the longest cable car system in Southeast Asia, spanning 3.38 km, whisks you to its breath taking hilltop location. In 2017 the world’s first Fox Studios theme park will open in Genting Highlands.
This highly acclaimed resort was just the beginning, however. Genting Malaysia has two other beautiful seaside properties, known as Awana Hotels & Resorts, and Genting’s gaming, leisure and hospitality business has grown across the world.
Resorts around the globe
Genting now has several Resorts Worlds. These include Resorts World Manila in the Philippines, Resorts World Bimini in the Bahamas, Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore, Resorts World New York with Resorts World Las Vegas due to open in 2017.
In late summer 2016 we shall be opening Crockfords Cairo in the heart of the Egyptian capital.
We’ve also made our mark on the cruise industry. Genting owns the Crystal Cruises, and Star Cruises operating in Asia, North America and the Caribbean.
Clubs and casinos across the country
In the 1990s, we spread our wings even further, establishing ourselves as a global multinational with interests ranging from plantations to property, biotechnology, power generation, and oil and gas. Although leisure and hospitality remain our core business.
Today, the Genting Group, including its subsidiaries and affiliates, has five public-listed companies on the Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia stock exchanges.
We’ve come a long way since Tan Sri (Dr.) Lim Goh Tong began this colossal journey in the highlands of Malaysia!
EXCLUSIVE LONDON CASINOS
We’re the capital’s leading casino operator with six casinos in London, including four of the most prestigious in the world:

A GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY
As a major UK casino operator, and part of a large multinational, we’re very conscious about minimising our impact on the environment. Not just here, but across the world.
We work hard to identify products and services from sustainable sources, maximise fuel efficiency, reduce energy consumption, manage waste and recycling effectively, and much more.
In doing so, we hope to not only help protect our world, but make a positive contribution towards a sustainable future locally, nationally and internationally.
