Resorts World Genting reopens with limited capacity from Sept. 30


Genting Malaysia’s Resorts World Genting property has reopened on a limited basis from Sept. 30th.

According to a message on its website, the resort’s employees are now fully vaccinated and some of the facilities will also only be available to those who have received both shots. It didn’t specify exactly which amenities are open.

The resort, in the Genting Highlands, will only be accessible to guests within its home state of Pahang. The government this week decided against a plan to reopen some of Malaysia’s key tourism resorts for interstate visitors. Malaysia is currently about 80 percent vaccinated and the government wants to see a 90 percent rate before further easing.

Resorts World Genting has been closed since June 1st to fight the spread of Covid. The casino had been closed a week prior to the full lockdown.
