fun place....good choice of food court, small rooms but OK. The amusement rides are under construction. The casino is nice inside and lots of action. Careful, because you cannot wear shorts and flip flops.

The scale of the hotel itself will blow your mind. One can get easily lost here. It has all good facilities. We took a twin room. It was very comfortable and housekeeping was excellent! It took as a while to check in though. Too many people waiting. Its not a typical hotel but has a lot more to offer in...

I had to bring my family up to Genting Highlands as they wanted to watch the Peter Marvey magic show. Lo and behold, finding hotel rooms was a real nightmare as there are shortage of hotel rooms in Genting Highlands at the moment due to the renovation works and the construction of the new Fox Studios which will be completed...

The First World Hotel is the "budget" hotel among those at the top of Genting highland. The room can be very small, and the distance to the cable car is far. However, if you are traveling with kid that are around 2 to 4, this is not a bad choice for the families. Kid will love those simple indoor rides!...

We stayed here for two nights and was very disappointed. The check in process involved waiting for hours in what looked like a government office as you had to take a number and wait your turn!! Secondly, as we had booked four rooms, we were promised that two would have a good view...two rooms overlooked the rooms across from us...
