Genting's First World is world's largest

First World is world's largest Hotel
19 Dec 2006


GENTING: First World Hotel Genting is now the world’s largest hotel.

The hotel has been cited by Guinness World Records under "Feats of Engineering for Big Buildings" for having 6,118 rooms.

The title was previously held by MGM Grand Hotel & Casino at Las Vegas, Nevada, in the United States with 5,005 rooms.

Resorts World Bhd president and chief operating officer Lee Choong Yan said: "This definitely adds another tourist attraction to the country.

"We will definitely continue to further improve our infrastructure as well as delivering our service to its best."

Together with five other hotels — Genting Hotel, Highlands Hotel, Resort Hotel, Theme Park Hotel and Awana Genting — the City of Entertainment now boasts over 10,000 rooms.

Last year, more than 18 million visited Genting.

Genting also offers more than 50 rides in its theme park such as the RM10 million Sky Venture (only two of such rides in the world) and the RM30 million Snow World, largest in Southeast Asia.

In line with the citation, Resorts World Berhad are offering a variety of special packages.

Mass tourism is ugly.

Genting is quite a huge casino resort. I was quite amazed at how they built all that so high up. The view of KL from there is so beautiful, especially when the clouds actually float by below you.
