7 Reasons why you should have a luxury staycation in Crockfords, Resorts World Genting

There’s nothing like a quick local staycation to relax and reset the mind and body so you can take on the world. If you’re looking for somewhere breezy and cool yet not too far from the city, Resorts World Genting is the place to be. Ahead, we have gleaned seven splendid reasons to book a stay at the resort’s distinguished Crockfords. 


Indulge in British-inspired grandeur

Nestled in the cool highlands about an hour away from Kuala Lumpur, Crockfords offers the pinnacle of stays at Resorts World Genting. The mountaintop hotel is named after an eponymous exclusive club in London’s Mayfair neighbourhood, hence its British-inspired interiors and ambiance. 

Uncompromised luxury and warm hospitality welcome guests the moment they step foot inside the hotel lobby, with an elegant floral installation by British artist Rebecca Louise Law making an artistic first impression. Dubbed The Four Seasons, the installation features more than 150,000 hand-cut, preserved flowers of 60 varieties across four frames—embodying spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Similar elements of equal grandeur extend to the rest of the hotel’s spaces, inspiring awe, especially in the little details.


Stay in lavish rooms and suites with unrivaled comfort

With its prime location adjacent to SkyAvenue, a mega lifestyle and retail hub, the hotel offers convenient access to popular attractions such as SkyCasino and Skytropolis Indoor Theme Park while providing a restful retreat from the bustling crowds. There are 140 rooms and suites in total, ranging from Superior Twin to the top-of-the-line Villa (formerly known as Executive Suite). 

Executive Suite – Gym

The Executive Suites, in particular, come in three eclectic themes. The Gym Suite is fitted with a high-end Italian gym system; the Tatami Suite integrates a Zen tea ceremony area into the living room; and the Mahjong Suite features an automatic (read: self-shuffling) mahjong table and a massage chair.

The Villa makes up the crème de la crème of luxury living at the resort, spanning 2,900 square feet with a grand living area, a dining room, a spa room, a private gym, three bedrooms comprising two king beds and twin beds, complete with panoramic views overlooking the rolling hills and rainforest. 

Executive Suite bathroom

All rooms boast opulent furnishings and luxuries including plush 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, a Nespresso machine, and an elegant marble bathroom stocked with premium bath amenities. What’s more, the turndown service comes with a little care package consisting of lip balms and pillow mist to ensure a good night’s sleep. 


Experience Forbes Travel Guide 5 Star Award hospitality

The hotel’s impeccable standards of service have not gone unnoticed, earning the coveted attention of Forbes magazine. Calling the hotel “Genting Highland’s best-kept secret”, the esteemed publication has awarded Crockfords with the Forbes Travel Guide 5 Star Award not once, not twice, but four times! In fact, it is the only hotel in Malaysia to receive the prestigious rating consecutively from 2019 to 2022. 


Have peace of mind with verified Global Security standards

Not only does Crockfords consistently uphold outstanding codes of luxury, but it is also a proud recipient of the Sharecare Verified™ health security badge—a testament to its commitment to your safety and comfort. The security verification requires an establishment to complete and maintain more than 360 global health security standards covering hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, and other comprehensive assessment measures to help ensure guest and employee safety. 


Enjoy a hearty meal at Crockfords Cafe

Crockfords Cafe

After a restful night’s sleep, guests can look forward to a delightful breakfast at Crockfords Cafe, located near the hotel lobby.  There’s a simple buffet spread for guests to fuel up on nutritious staples, on top of the main dish of their choice from the à la carte menu. If you’re not sure which option to go for, the cafe’s signature nasi lemak with lobster rendang (rice cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf served with spicy curry) is a crowd-favourite!


Be entertained at the prestigious Crockfords Club

While there are plenty of attractions within walking distance from the hotel, guests can also stay entertained without leaving the premises. For instance, there’s the FUHU pop-up dining restaurant located at Crockfords Club on the third floor, serving contemporary Asian fine-dining cuisine with vibrant music in a dreamlike Sakura garden setting. Conceptualised by the team behind Zouk Singapore—the world’s third most famous nightclub in the world—the unique concept is popular for dishes such as Aromatic Crispy Duck and Boston Lobster Noodle, to name a few. Besides that, guests can also enjoy soothing daily live performances* by artists including Janet Lee, May Mow and more at the Crockfords Club Lounge in the afternoon and late evening.
