Resorts World Sdn Bhd, a private company limited by shares, was incorporated on 7 May 1980 under the Companies Act 1965. Upon conversion into a public company in 1989, its name was changed to Resorts World Bhd (1989 – 2009), and subsequently Genting Malaysia Berhad (“Genting Malaysia”) (Co. number 58019-U).
In 1989, Genting Berhad and Genting Malaysia underwent a restructuring exercise, which resulted in Genting Malaysia acquiring from Genting Berhad its entire gaming, hotel and resort-related operations, inclusive of goodwill and other relevant assets. Genting Malaysia’s shares have been traded on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia since its listing on 22 December 1989.
Resorts World Genting (“RWG”) is a premier leisure and entertainment resort in Malaysia. It is equipped with about 10,500 rooms spread across 7 hotels, theme parks and entertainment attractions, dining and retail outlets, as well as international shows and business convention facilities. In December 2013, the Group embarked on a 10-year master plan to reinvigorate and transform RWG under the Genting Integrated Tourism Plan (“GITP”).
Since then Genting Malaysia has introduced a plethora of new facilities and attractions under the GITP that promises to provide guests a truly wholesome and world-class experience at RWG. These include the First World Hotel Tower 3, the Awana SkyWay cable car system, the Theme Park Hotel, the Crockfords Hotel, new attractions in the SkyAvenue entertainment complex and the newly refurbished First World Plaza, as well as the new Skytropolis Indoor Theme Park. The opening of the Genting Highlands Premium Outlets (a joint venture between Genting Plantations Berhad and Simon Property Group) at the mid-hill in June 2017 further complements the new and existing offerings at RWG.
Genting Malaysia also owns and operates two beautiful seaside properties, namely Resorts World Kijal in Terengganu and Resorts World Langkawi on Langkawi Island.
