Resorts World Genting Has Rooms From S$38/Night For A Quick Getaway Next Year
For a lot of people in Singapore, Chinese New Year (CNY) can be a very exciting but busy period filled with house visits, feasting, and catching up with relatives you don’t see often.
As such, some may want to get out of town for a quick vacation to relax before things get hectic during the festive week, or after the celebrations are finally over to recharge.
If a trip up to the chilly highlands sounds good, you might want to check out Resorts World Genting.
To welcome the Year of the Rabbit, they’ve rolled out their first-ever Huat8 Room Deals at four of their hotels, where Singaporeans can enjoy up to 75% off the usual rates.
Get direct access to Genting Highlands attractions on a budget
Travelling to Genting Highlands doesn’t have to cost you all your angbao money.
If your priority is getting the best bang for your buck, First World Hotel fits the bill.
Widely known as the hotel with the best value in Resorts World Genting, it may also be the most eye-catching as the building sports a rainbow-hued exterior that’s visible from miles away.
Furthermore, it carries the impressive title of the world’s largest hotel, with a whopping 7,351 rooms.
This means you likely won’t have to worry about not getting a room even if you make a last-minute reservation.
Being at the heart of the hill resort, the hotel also has direct access to the SkyAvenue shopping mall and Skytropolis Indoor Theme Park, making it ideal for those seeking a weekend of retail therapy and thrilling rides.
Explore nature at 944m above sea level
Located just 35 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur (KL), Resorts World Awana might just be the most accessible among Resorts World Genting’s accommodations.
Accessibility aside, its true appeal comes from the wide variety of nature activities it offers.
To really feel like you’ve gotten away from city life, choose from indulging in a round of golf at the resort’s mountainous 18-hole course, multi-level trekking through the 130-million year old rainforest, or exotic bird-watching. Or you could just do it all.
Once you’re back from the great outdoors, you can dine at AYU Awana, Malaysia’s first tropical lifestyle restaurant, or chill at the poolside lounge.
Besides that, the Genting Highlands Premium Outlets are only a two-minute drive away, so you can hop on the hotel’s free shuttle service and fit in some shopping before making your way home.
With so many things to do in one place, Resorts World Awana is a good fit for all kinds of visitors, whether it’s families, couples, friends, or solo travellers.
Bring out your inner kid with a theme park at your doorstep
If you’re the theme park fanatic in your gang, the Genting SkyWorlds Hotel is where you can indulge your inner kid and adrenaline junkie to the fullest.
Located right outside the hotel is the Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park, which boasts nine themed worlds and 26 rides spread out across 26 acres.
Having been under construction since 2013, it finally opened earlier this year to great fanfare.
From carousels to rollercoasters to interactive 3D rides, there’s plenty to keep you and your friends or family entertained for an entire day.
Theme park aside, the hotel is also situated right at the doorstep of the Arena of Stars and SkyAvenue, so you can fill up your itinerary with a showcase or shopping spree.
Experience luxury hospitality at the top
For a true ‘treat yourself’ experience, Crockfords immediately comes to mind.
Touted as the most exclusive stay at Resorts World Genting, Crockfords has lived up to its reputation year after year by being the first Malaysian hotel to receive a five-star rating by the Forbes Travel Guide four years in a row from 2019 to 2022.
All suites feature an in-room private steam bath and Greek Calacatta marble restroom fixtures.
Guests can also command the room with a mere tap of their finger thanks to the latest in one-touch technology.
With all these spoils in one room, Crockfords would be an ideal pick if you and your other half simply want to enjoy each other’s company in an opulent setting.

Start the new year at the top, literally
In many ways, 2023 will feel like the first year things have almost completely returned to normal since we were hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Hence, it’s easy to see the appeal of kicking it off in a setting that’s drastically different from home, such as someplace high up and chilly. Thankfully for Singaporeans, there’s a place like that in our neighbouring country.
And with bus operators having fully resumed two-way trips across the Causeway, there’s even more reason to have that getaway now.
