Top 4 luxury casino hotels and resorts in Malaysia to visit this year

If you haven’t heard yet, Malaysia has some of the world’s top resorts and hotels in the world, not to mention their casino’s, which draw in the whales of the gambling world. If you’re looking for that rush of striking it big, we scoured the Malay Peninsula to bring you four hotel-casinos that are a must- visit this year.

However, before you join the big leagues, we suggest fine tuning your blackjack skills by visiting a leading casino online in Malaysia first. Playing online in the comfort of your bedroom can be a great way to find tips and tricks from other enthusiasts and professionals, who can help you win it big in Malaysia at one of these four luxury hotel casinos.

Resorts World Genting Crockfords Hotel

As Malaysia’s only Forbes Travel Guide 5-star hotel, we couldn’t start a list without including the Resorts World Genting Crockfords Hotel. Positioned adjacent to SkyCasino, the new Crockfords Hotel is one of the swankiest hidden gems in Kuala Lumpur’s Genting Highlands region. Guests will enjoy the 5-star treatment, from luxurious suites with in-room private steam baths to being the home of one of the top and more modern casinos in the area. SkyCasino is an opulent gaming space with an enchanting forest theme interior. Guests can choose from the general gaming space or opt-in for the Sky Casino Silver Club for a private experience with electronic table games, slots and more. When you’re not at the tables, take a break in one of the several bars inside, or head to Fuhu Bar and Restaurant for a fine-dining experience that meets the nightlife scene. You can also catch a live show, which is offered regularly.

Resorts World Maxims

Voted ‘One of the Finest Properties in the World 2018’ (Forbes Travel Guide), you will be charmed by the timeless elegance of this distinguished property. Hotel Maxims is dedicated to its gambling clients as bookings for Maxims are exclusive to casino guests, Genting Rewards members (Gold & above), and selected online travel agents only. The building sits atop the mountain, which provides great views of a forested valley and is only a six minute drive to the Chin Swee Caves Temple – which is a must see in Malaysia. Guests can relax with a pampering massage or enjoy the rides at the theme park, which is also a great option for families. You can also take a Skyway Cable Car for spectacular views of the Genting Highlands. As for the casinos, guests can walk to the SkyCasino or Genting Grand Casino, which are both located a mere 5-minutes away.

Resorts World Awana

Situated in Mid-Hill, the Resorts World Awana is a great option for those looking to separate from the hustle and bustle of the city and instead nestle in a lush green environment with majestic mountain range backdrop. Here, guests can enjoy nature walks, practice their golf game on an 18-hole course or shop their way through the Genting Highland Premium Outlets. Similar to the other Resorts World hotels, the Awana also has access to the SkyCasino, where you can revel in a gamers paradise, without feeling like you’re in a metropolitan area. It is only a 20-minute drive away, and once you’re done striking it rich in either the Genting Grand Casino or SkyCasino, you can retreat back to a serene setting and be surrounded by natural beauty.

Resorts World Genting Grand

Crowned with the Genting Logo, the Genting Grand is the most recognizable hotel at The Peak, which is also set in the Genting Highlands of Kuala Lumpur. Here, guests have access to the shopping district and a vibrant nightlife at the several bars and clubs nearby. Most importantly, the Genting Grand is close to the SkyCasino, which as we mentioned earlier is a gamers paradise. Although, the Genting Grand has its own casino – the Genting Casino, which remains a hot commodity among visitors and includes a variety of classic games, slot machines and of course, electronic table games.
