The First World Hotel has an impressive 6118 rooms, which makes it the world’s largest hotel in the period of 2005 – 2007 and it is listed in the Guinness World Records. If you are visiting Genting Highlands, there are high chances that you will be staying in this hotel because the other two hotels Genting Highlands and Maxims are reserved for high rollers.
First World Hotel is at present the world’s fourth largest hotel where the check in process is no joke with more than 30 check in counters.
On top of that, there are many self service check in kiosks beside it. We were there on the weekend of 31st August and the lobby was like a market, full of people waiting to check in.
If you are waiting too long while checking in, take a stroll at the the rain forest hall with conical Chinese lanterns next to the lobby.
The room is basic and quite tiny it reminded me of the hotel that we stayed in Japan, but then I guess if you are in Genting, you probably won’t be spending too much time in the room. There is no aircon so you’ll have to make good use of Genting’s cool weather by opening the windows. The price was RM 400 plus per night (peak season).
Have fun at Genting – be it shopping, casino, food hunting, shows, and theme parks. Below are a few photos of the indoor theme park 🙂
