It all began in 1965 with Genting Highlands in Malaysia

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 known as Resorts World Genting and it remains one of Malaysia's most popular tourist destinations, attracting close to 20 million visitors every year.

Hospitality on a grand scale

Inside Resorts World Genting visitors can choose from any one of seven hotels, collectively offering more than 10,300 rooms.

This includes Crockfords, Maxims Hotel, Genting Grand Hotel, Theme Park Hotel, Resort Hotel, Awana and First World Hotel - the world's largest hotel, boasting over 7,000 rooms.

In addition to the range of accommodation on offer, Resorts World Genting also features theme parks and entertainment attractions, an 18-hole golf course, a multitude of dining and retail outlets and multifunctional business and convention facilities.

Genting is now well underway with an ambitious 10 year master plan, which will reinvigorate and transform Resorts World Genting. To date, this project has included the unveiling of the First World Hotel Tower 3, the implementation of the Awana SkyWay cable car system and the opening of the spectacular SkyAvenue lifestyle mall. Other attractions and facilities, meanwhile – including the opening of the world's first Twentieth Century Fox World theme park – will unfold in the coming years.


Resorts around the globe

The Genting Group boasts an unrivalled wealth of experience in the leisure, entertainment and hospitality industry. In addition to Resort World Genting, the Group now owns and operates fully integrated resorts and cruise lines around the world including a number of ‘Resorts World' destinations in locations such as Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, USA and the Bahamas.

Resorts World Malaysia and Singapore collectively attract in excess of 40 million visitors annually.

In the UK, meanwhile, Genting operates Resorts World Birmingham – the UK's first integrated leisure complex, which features a multitude of gaming and entertainment facilities, retail and dining outlets and a 178 room four star hotel. Genting remains one of the UK's largest and most well respected casino operators with a portfolio of 42 casinos including six in the city of London.

In 2017, Genting opened Crockfords Cairo – a luxury destination that takes its name from Genting's exclusive Mayfair casino located in the heart of London. This marked Genting's very first venture into the Middle East.

Clubs and casinos

In the 1990s, we spread our wings even further, establishing ourselves as a global multinational with interests ranging from property, biotechnology, power generation, and oil and gas. Leisure and hospitality, however, remain our core business.

Today, the Genting Group, including its subsidiaries and affiliates, has a number of 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!
