Top 6 New Things To Do In Genting Highlands

A couple of weeks back, we got to do a really fun staycation at Grand Ion Delemen Hotel, Genting Highlands. Genting Highlands is being quickly developed into an entertainment hub up in the cooling mountains and to meet the demand of growing tourists, many new hotels have begun to pop up. Grand Ion Delemen has actually been open for the past 3 years but it has been kept a little known secret spot - mainly because it’s tucked away in a different part of Genting Highlands. If yo

The Fairy Tales Cafe up at Grand Ion Delemen Hotel, Genting Highlands is every Instagrammer's dream. Set in an al fresco space, the lush gardenscape is whimsical in every way from its bright pink flower wall to its high tea set. The first thing you will notice about the Fairy Tales Cafe is that it gives off a very Alice In Wonderland vibe. You do feel like you're about the have tea with the Red Queen.

Beauty In The Pot, Genting Skyavenue

Beauty in the Pot is finally in Malaysia and its first outlet is in Genting Skyavenue. It’s the perfect spot to open a hot pot place, of course, because of the cooling weather.

Empire by Zouk, Genting Skyavenue

We attended the launch of Empire by Zouk, the new R&B room at the famed club up in the skies. Before you go into the club to party, drop by RedTail by Zouk to get your drink on first. It isn’t our first visit to RedTail. And it’s been consistently awesome each time! From their bar snacks to the cocktails, RedTail hits the nail on the head every time. It’s the perfect watering hole after a heavy dinner at one of Genting Skyavenue's famed F&B outlets. Beauty in the Pot, anyone?

Motorino, SkyAvenue Genting Highlands

Honestly, I hadn't heard of the brand before. So when I was told I'd be dining at Motorino during a food trip to Genting, I was unfazed. Apparently the wood fire pizza brand hails from New York but I was none the wiser till actually getting there. I often say that once brands come into Malaysia, I believe their quality tends to drop a little. Not that I have tried Motorino anywhere else but I believe even comparing to other local Western places, there is a long way to go for

Burger & Lobster, SkyAvenue Genting Highlands

Of course, when in Genting, one has to drop by the brand new Skyavenue to check out the glittering casino and the expansive F&B offerings. Burger & Lobster is one of the most well known brands to come to Skyavenue's impressive lineup of establishments. Having been to the one in London, I definitely had my expectations set up but knowing that it would be a completely different experience, I braced myself for the worst. I shouldn't have because as of March this year, I have to
