Celebrate Above the Clouds at Resorts World Genting

Looking for a unique wedding venue? Up in the clouds, Resorts World Genting offers a stunning wedding destination with its beautiful mountainous scenery, deliciously cool weather, and plethora of dining and retail options to entertain your guests.

On 5 April 2018, we were invited up to Resorts World Genting for a wedding showcase in the popular vacation spot’s luxuriously transformed premises. As part of its decade-long reconstruction plan, the resort has unveiled a new premium lifestyle mall, an advanced cable car system, stunning hotels, and world-class restaurants. Coupled with its hilltop location, beautiful mountain scenery, and cool 14-24-degree weather, Resort World Genting’s dynamic new infrastructure makes for a great wedding destination only a few hours from Singapore.

We were taken on a tour of all the mountaintop resort has to offer soon-to-wed couples. From beautiful backdrops for pre-wedding shoots, to exciting wedding venues, to delicious menu choices, Resorts World Genting is an unparalleled destination for couples to say “I Do” above the clouds.

Pre-Wedding Shoots on the Peak

Wedding photo opportunities abound on top of the mountain, with sweeping views of the mist rolling in over the green hills, or on the other side of the mountain, glittering cityscapes of KLCC and the rest Kuala Lumpur. We were shown the magnificent views on the advanced Awana Skyway cable car system, not just from its windows, but also its glass bottom! The cable cars make a stop midway down the mountain at the Chin Swee Temple, where couples can head to for bold colours and traditional architecture for their pre-wedding shoots. Those who want something unique will find a dynamic backdrop in the SkySymphony, a vibrant orchestra of multimedia storytelling.

Largest Column-Free Hall in Malaysia

The venue of choice is the Grand Ballroom in Genting International Convention Centre. The popular event space is the largest column-free hall in Malaysia, and can host up to 1,800 guests, while offering the versatility of being configured into more intimate venues for smaller weddings. Couples who book a ballroom will be offered a VIP lounge with plush seating and an ensuite powder room for their tea ceremonies or other religious rites, and a bridal changing room conveniently next to the Grand Ballroom stage.

Garden Weddings

Genting Highlands’ cool weather will appeal to couples who dream of an outdoor, garden wedding. At Awana Hotel, you can host a beautiful wedding party in a cosy green clearing surrounded by the forest. A charmingly private venue enclosed by the forest, the lawn is the perfect setting for an outdoor exchange of vows under the blue sky. The venue hosts a minimum of 400 guests for Western individual set meals or 500 for buffets, and up to 2,000 guests under a marquee tent. Couples who choose to get married at Awana Hotel are also entitled to a photo shoot around its perfectly manicured 18-hole golf course.

Intimate Celebrations in the Clouds

For more intimate celebrations, Resorts World Genting has a plethora of upscale restaurants where you can host a sophisticated wedding in the sky. Located on the highest point in Genting, the award-winning restaurant e18hteen boasts stunning panoramic views and abundant natural light throughout its beautiful botanical-inspired space. Host poolside cocktails before your elegant celebration in the clouds, with up to 200 guests. Prices start from RM250 per guest for a buffet.

Sumptuous Wedding Menus

For lunch, we had the pleasure of sampling Resorts World Genting’s Chinese wedding menu favourites, such as the double boiled seafood broth with fish maw and the wolfberry prawn with superior stock. Prepared by Chef Andrew Lim, who has been in the culinary line for almost 40 years, the dishes use carefully selected ingredients, including freshly picked herbs and vegetables from their own garden.

Besides Chinese cuisine, the banquet restaurant also serves Muslim, Indian, and Western wedding menus, and menus are customisable to suit couples’ tastes. Wedding packages begin from RM1,688 nett per table, and includes a night’s stay in the Bridal Room, a bottle of house wine per table, fresh floral arrangements, a champagne tower, and more.
