Genting Malaysia, the global leisure and hospitality company, announced that Resorts World Genting would reopen earlier than expected as the government relaxed COVID-19 restrictions.
Resorts World Genting resumed its operations on February 16, while the company announced the reopening of Resorts World Langkawi and Resorts World Kijal, which are non-gaming properties, on February 19.
Resorts World Genting was closed down on January 22 due to restrictions established by a government order. Before that, the company decided to reduce the activity at this venue due to a travel ban that reduced the potential number of customers.
The reopening on February 16 does not mean that the activity will be fully restored, as some restrictions remain in place. In a notice posted on the company website, Resorts World Genting insisted that the activity will follow strict standard operating procedures.
The notice said: “Some of our hotels, facilities, attractions and other offerings will be subjected to revised operating hours, limited availability or temporary closure. We will continue to fully adhere to the strict standard operating procedures issued by the government throughout the resort and we seek our guests’ cooperation to do the same. The safety and health of all our guests and employees remain our utmost priority.”
