THE MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas with its 5,005 rooms, used to hold the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest hotel.
But last year, a Malaysian contender, First World Hotel in Genting Highlands, broke that record by upping the ante with 6,118 rooms.
Securing a room on the 17th floor means you’ll get a grand view of the Theme Park.
And even if you don’t make it to the Outdoor Theme Park, there’s an indoor version at First World Plaza, a shopping mall that incorporates a theme park. There, you can simulate skydiving at Sky Venture, create snowballs at the wintry Snow World, take a ride on the 4D Motion Master or visit the Ripley’s Believe or Not Museum.
The World Club Room offers more space and is partitioned off to include a mini lounge area with a two-seater sofa and coffee table. The room comes with complimentary soft drinks, mineral water, welcome drinks and breakfast. And in the new tower, the queen-size beds ensure guests get a good night’s sleep.
If sleep eludes you, head over to the First World Plaza where you can shop till you drop, grab a bite at Lake View Seafood restaurant, catch a movie at one of two cineplexes or test your skills at the 28-lane bowling alley.
Also situated within the cool confines of Genting Highlands is the four-star Resort Hotel. Furnished with modern amenities and comfortable queen-size beds, the rooms cater to guests who stay for business or leisure.
The standard room offers in-house movies, in-house music, tea- and coffee-making facilities, shower, hairdryer and bathroom amenities. Internet access is available in selected rooms.
Within the hotel, a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf outlet offers one the chance to relax and chat over a warm beverage while those who feel peckish can check out the Resort Café and Kampong Restaurant which offers both local and western dishes.
