A History of Genting Highlands
For most Malaysians, when it comes to the Genting story, they will recognise it as tantamount with the rise of its namesake hill resort, Genting Highlands Resort. Although many may have not truly respected the gargantuan task that was involved in the construction and the vast resources and reserves that was mobilised in order to ensure what has proven without a doubt today to be an extraordinary success in resort development.
The idea of a hill resort was thought up by Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong while amidst the crisp air of Cameron Highlands, Malaysia in 1964. Tan Sri Lim was at that time, working on a hydro-electric power project at the popular hill resort, that was patronised mostly by British colonials seeking cool refuge from the tropical heat. Here, he anticipated a wealthy Malaysia of the future desiring a cool mountain holiday resort that would be within the reach of all Malaysians.C:UsersAlexandria de LimaPicturesGentingBZLF.jpg
An in-depth study of the maps and Kuala Lumpur’s vicinity revealed the ideal site- the 1800 metre Gunung Ulu Kali, which was just around 50km from Kuala Lumpur. The location was a dense virgin tropical jungle and had rugged terrain; the task at hand was to convert this remote mountain into Malaysia’s premier holiday destination. To everyone else, this appeared to be an impossible and daunting task, but not for Tan Sri Lim.
With Tan Sri Haji Mohammed Noah bin Omar, a private company called Genting Highlands Berhad was set up on the 27th of April 1965. After this, Tan Sri Lim successfully obtained the approval for the alienation of 12,000 acres and 2,800 acres of land from the Pahang and Selangor State Governments, respectively between the years 1965 and 1970. On the 18th of August 1965, a technical and construction team instigated the staggering task that would take almost four years to complete; the access road from Genting Sempah to the peak of Gunung Ulu Kali. Tan Sri Lim devoted all of his time, capital and resources, including the resources of his family company, Kien Huat Berhad, to ensure that the construction of the hotel-cum-resort happened without incident, thus moving closer to making this “dream resort” a reality.
On the 31st of March 1969, Malaysia’s First Prime Minister, YTM Tunku Abdul Rahman, dignified the official laying of the foundation stone for the company’s pioneer hotel, initially named as Highlands Hotel, thus marking the completion of the access road to Genting Highlands Resort. The Prime Minister was very impressed that the private sector, without any assistance of the government, could develop a mountain resort for the enjoyment of all Malaysians. In addition, a gaming licence was suggested to help accelerate the development of this remote area. In 1971, the first hotel at Genting Highlands was successfully completed and was named Highlands Hotel; it has then been renamed Theme Park Hotel.
Since the opening of the first hotel in 1971, Genting Resort continued to grow rapidly. The development of the area continues to this present day, in order to enhance Genting Highlands Resort as the premier holiday destination in the region all while ensuring that the natural beauty of the rain forest is preserved.
Together with integrated world-standard entertainment facilities that encompasses various leisure, indoor and outdoor theme parks and gaming facilities. In 1997, Genting Highlands Resort further boosted its facility attraction with the Genting Skyway cable car system that provides a 3.38 km transport to the hilltop. Genting Skyway is recognised as the “World’s Fastest Mono Cable Car System” with a maximum speed of 21.6 km per hour and the “Longest Cable Car in Malaysia and Southeast Asia”.C:UsersAlexandria de LimaPicturesGentinggenting5.jpg
The Genting Group, founded by Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong, along with Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay as its Chairman and Chief Executive, from its initial hotel and resort activities has expanded and diversified to plantation, power generation and oil and gas exploration and production. Today, Genting Berhad has become a leading multinational corporation in Malaysia; it has frequently been accredited by innumerable organisations for its exemplary leadership and management. Genting Berhad was acknowledged as the No. 1 Leading Company in Malaysia for 10 years, that is 2004 and from 1994 to 2002 by The Asian Wall Street Journal 200; formerly known as Far Eastern Economic Review 200). Genting Berhad was also rated No. 1 in Malaysia and No. 2 in Asia for Overall Best Managed Company for the Decade by Asiamoney. C:UsersAlexandria de LimaPicturesGenting1431.jpg
The Founder, Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong passes away peacefully on 23 October 2007 and was laid to rest at Gohtong Memorial Park on 29 October 2007. 
“Once the goals have been clearly defined, with the greatest amount of determination and hard work, one can conclusively realise one’s goals”
