The First World Hotel is an amazing place to be. From beautiful views to great soft beds. The only problem with the hotel is that the rooms are a little bit small. But still, it is overall a great place to be.

Was looking forward to first time staying in Genting but it turned out to be one of my worst hotel experiences. Construction around the facility. Hotel building deco was uninspiring. Terrible corporate group booking service - Stayed 4 nights in Tower 2, Level 28 which is in the better room category. Check-in was slow and they gave me a smoking...
