Hence, could say that there’s not much difference between GG and Maxim?

Surprised that Maxim bed so small. FWH Y5 bed looks bigger than this.

That's a twin bed...when alone i normally pick a room with a King size bed...like in any hotel u hv a choice between King size vs twin bed.

Well, bed is more or less std size regardless of hotel. Ppl mostly look at the interior layout and design ...as well the ambience as well

The Maxim looks like single size. Y5 super single size. Maybe that's why Y5 triple don't even have chair. Must sit on bed.

But of course agree that the room facilities etc are important.

Personally, i prefer GG to MXM...GG is more of executive/ conventional style - eg. with working table and mxm is more contemporary... it's all down to individual taste and preference

This time, since all the main Genting hotels are fully booked or damn expensive, I've decided to book at Gloria Residence Ion Delemen. Has anyone stayed there before? Good reviews on TripAdvisor and not that far from the main Genting area. Probably would take the shuttle or Grab/taxi to and fro.

The main disadvantage is that you cannot walk to and from the Genting area. Regardless of where you want to go on the mountain, the taxi drivers will charge you RM 20 from Genting. You can get a card from one of them so that you can call them to pick you up. Not quite sure about Grab - if you do stay there, plse post if you can get Grab to and from the hotel.

When paying cash from rooms, it is best to book about 2 months ahead of when you want to go. The trick is to book before Genting releases them for redemption as comps. Once the rooms are released, the price usually skyrockets.

It is highly recommended that you do so.

You can book the bus tickets at the automated machine near the skyway counter. You can book the bus tickets in advance (not sure how far ahead).

You can also buy the bus tickets in advance back from KL Sentral. This is a must because the tickets from KL Sentral to Genting usually sold out fast.

Incidentally, you can also use the machine to buy aerobus bus tickets to KLIA/KLIA2.

Have any bros buy the golden package recently?

Is it confirmed that the $1000 and $2000 package has been discontinued?

Thank you! Will update about the Grab situation! :)

I checked and there's still room available for booking at fwh. Where did you see the fully booked status?

Each account is specifically curated by the system. The availability/ room rate/ complimentary room differs for each account. My guess is the higher amount you transact at the casino, the greater the benefits you will enjoy.

You need to buy the bus tix at KL Sentral basement, best to do it 1 day before the trip up becuz tix get sold out on the spot quite fast. Get the return trip tix as well just to be safe. If you cannot book in time, just take grab lor. Market price is ~50RM from KL area to Awana Skyway (cable car station at the foot of Genting), most drivers won't go up because they don't want to wear out their engine. It's better for you just to take the cable car up than risk stalling on the mountain slope anyway :s8:
