The Last Weekend Before MCO @ Swiss Garden Genting Highlands

The Last Weekend Before MCO @ Swiss Garden Genting Highlands | During the very last weekend before the whole Malaysia went on Movement Control Order, I went up the Genting Highlands with some friends for a trip that was kinda long overdue - it has been quite sometime since I last spent time with my blogger friends (read: on a crazy trip).

So, Zharif, Mahamahu and I hitched a ride with Faries and we all went up the highlands right after Friday prayer. Thanks Faries for the ride (you can claim the Starbucks later ok). We arrived at the Swiss-Garden Hotel and Residences Genting Highlands, located around 30 minutes from Tol Gombak (the traffic was light then). 
You can actually see the building from the main road, just before the Starbucks Genting Highlands (you know where that is hehehe). We met with Abam Marcus at lobby before he brought us to our rooms - room 3007 for Mahamahu and I, whereas Zharif and Faries will be staying at the room right in front of us. And the room was huge - it is a two-room apartment with all the basic necessities - a complete kitchen and two bathrooms. Since our roomies (Kifli and Helmi) has yet to check in, Mahamahu and  I chose the master-bed room as it has a bathroom in it. 
Not soon after, Kifli and Helmi arrived and the hell literally broke loose. There were screams of joy as it has been so long since we all met.

Later that evening, we all gathered at the lobby to meet with other media friends - so I got to make new friends there. We were told that Faries and Zharif's roomies will be arriving a bit later so we just gathered around and listened to Abam Marcus' explanation of what is waiting for us throughout the weekend. 
Basically, the trip will be super easy and fun for all  with emphasis on the facilities and what one can do here while vacationing at Swiss Garden Hotel and Residences Genting Highlands. Apart from spending time here at the residences, Genting Premium Outlet (GPO) is just a drive away from here (the hotel offers pick-up and drop-off using its shuttle, FOC to GPO - just enquire at the lovely people at the front desk. 

After a brief explanation from Abam Marcus, we all went back to our rooms while waiting for dinner. Most of us went straight to Level 41, known as Ceremonial Alcove where the view is SUPERB and AMAZING. During a clear day, one can see straight up to the highest building in Genting Highlands, which is the Resort World Genting and other buildings there.

There are two swimming pools here and a beautiful glass house in the middle of it all (the best place to take your pictures - everywhere else is beautiful too). We spent almost 1.5 hours here just taking pictures at every corner of the level - the scenery was breathtaking way from Level 41. Some funny incidents - there were some friends who are experiencing acrophobia (and they should remain nameless hahaha). 

We were told that the temperature would drop at nights - but the pools will be heated so that the guest could enjoy the night view here comfortably. And the pools are open until 10 pm daily. 

For dinner, we went down to level 5 where The Garden Terrace is located. And I will forever love the delicious Teh Tarik here - I want more!

And not so long after we were seated, walked in the mystery roomies of Zharif and Faries'. Who else than none other than Cik Lily Putih and her husband!  I should have known about this conspiracy between these two! The crowd just shouted and cheered on as Cik Lily Putih and her husband walked into The Garden Terrace.

The Garden Terrace became louder and merrier with laughter from then on.

Later that night, a bunch of us went down to the Starbucks nearby, just a walking distance from the hotel before calling it a night. 

The next day, after a hearty and scrumptious breakfast at The Garden Terrace, we were shown around the hotel - the rooms and facilities available in the hotel. I will share more about the rooms in another post. For now, it be enough for you to know that the rooms are beautiful, spacious and the view is breathtaking

And guys, there are activities room too there. 
It was at level B1 if I am not mistaken where the whole floor is open for activities as there are 3 squash courts, 1 huge Karaoke Room that is adjacent to a huge Games Room. Your family members will not be bored here at Swiss Garden Hotel and Residences Genting Highlands - just head on to the Front Desk and they will assist you to access the activity area.

Later that evening, we were told to dress up as the hotel will be featuring its Ramadhan Buffet. Befitting the theme 'Sajian Warisan Budaya', we were told to dress in the best traditional attire that we have - and man - everyone showed up in the grandest attire that they have! 

After the grand dinner, once again, the group went to Starbucks, again. Hehe. Some of us just cannot function properly, not even  one day without coffee. Hehehe.

Early tomorrow morning, right after breakfast at The Garden Terrace, we were invited for a zumba session with Dr. Lashela Dharmadass from Toscana Medi Clinic. The session was open to all and soon, the garden right in front of The Garden Terrace was full with happily sweating people, dancing their stress away with the pumping music and the zumba steps led by Dr. Lashela. 

Later that day, Dr. Lashela chaired a sharing session about beauty and health talk, focusing on Anti-Ageing and Effects of Snoring. It was such an eye-opening session and I will share more info about the session in another post. There were too many informative bits that I would like to share in depth with all. Thank you so much Toscana Medi Clinic for such an informative session. Bottomline about the session - snoring might be symptoms to other sickness, slowly creeping inside you. Get yourself checked and be sure, rather than be sorry.

It was a short and sweet getaway that I really needed - the rooms are spacious with complete amenities (the residence rooms), the food was tasty and making me wanting more, the activities are endless and the best thing is - the staff are super friendly!

I hope the dangerous Covid-19 will soon gone and we will be able to enjoy our lives as before. And please do visit here to ease your minds from  the troubles of the world - I know I managed to do so.
