With travel restrictions in most countries being lifted, now is the time to sight-see and check out Resorts World Genting in Malaysia.

In conjunction with Genting Malaysia’s 57th anniversary, here are their latest offerings and promotions.

Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park

Located at 6,000 feet above sea level, Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park has finally opened with nine different movie and adventure inspired ‘worlds’ to explore.

Besides rides and attractions, there will also be an exciting mix of live entertainment, retail and dining experiences to look forward to.

Bring your family for a trip to Southeast Asia’s most anticipated theme park with this 1-Day Family Ticket package.

While you’re at it, here are also some new F&B establishments to check out:

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse Lounge

Indulge in a variety of cosmopolitan treats and a great view at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse Lounge, one of the best places in the bustling dining and retail complex for high-tea, an afternoon soiree, or pre-dinner drinks.

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse

Experience luxe New York style steakhouse dining at Resorts World Genting with Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, the only outlet in the world with a view of a theme park.

As Malaysia’s first Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, diners can expect nearly everything from the original New York menus, with the Grand menu (dinner) being relatively unchanged.

One of Wolfgang Steakhouse’s signature offerings will be the porterhouse, as well as rib-eye, tenderloin, sirloin, and beef burgers.

Like all true steakhouses, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse will offer mashed potatoes, sautéed spinach and other sides which are purposely kept simple to best complement the meat.

Desserts will have a characteristically New York slant, with cheesecake, tiramisu and sundaes which can be ordered as a sharing platter.
