Where to Stay in Genting Highlands

The recommended place is usually First World Hotel- it provide a series of basic simple room at a budget:

Sometimes, there are room offer discounts- you need to check the website for more information.

(fyi: phone booking cost RM10 service charge).
What is available in a standard room:

2 single beds (clean sheets), up to 3 pillos, 2 cups, a plastic flask, 2 towels, a shower cap, attached bath shower lotion & hand soap, a box of tissue papers, 2 rolls of toilet paper, a small TV (Vision Four TV. No Astro, the local cable TV- t, sorry). Of course, probably only the toilet paper, tissue box and shower cap are complementary- the rest should not be removed from the room.
You can get hot/cold water using the plastic jug.

There are other resorts/hotels available in Genting. If you want to rent a condominium (located in Genting), you can drop me a comment- because I have a friend who owns a condominium there.

Note: Genting is the preferred holiday destination for many Malaysians because of the cool weather- since its Chinese name means “top of the clouds”. As such, if you go during school holiday sessions, public holidays (especially those public holidays that falls on a long weekend), it will be difficult to get the standard room- and prices are marked higher.

Therefore, please plan and book early to avoid disappointment or inconvenience.

Alternatively, if you are taking the earliest bus up to Genting, you can take the last bus down if you are staying in Kuala Lumpur. It can be a day trip- but the journey may be a bit tiring.
