Resorts World Genting, an integrated hill resort development featuring hotels, theme parks and casinos near the border between the states of Pahang and Selangor, Malaysia, has today stated that it is continuing to monitor the situation further regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, before re-opening.
The resort, owned by the Genting Group and operated by the firm’s Malaysian arm, previously penned the date of 12th May 2020 for the closure period to run to before considering re-opening, which will mean that the establishment will have been closed for almost two months due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis.
Despite the Prime Minister of Malaysia since March 2020 Muhyiddin Yassin announcing that restrictions were being lifted with regards to business activities and economic sectors providing that social distancing was implemented, Genting has confirmed that its operations would remain closed until at least the mid-May date.
The company stated:
‘Despite the Conditional Movement Control Order, will remain closed until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation and make the necessary announcements as more information becomes available.’
Genting currently owns and operates four hospitality properties consisting of casinos and accommodate that are affected by the closure and remain shuttered.
Resorts World Genting is the only legal land-based casino in Malaysia. There are two main casino outlets in the resort which are Genting Casino and SkyCasino.
