The Undiscovered Swimming Pool & Restaurant @ Genting Highlands 云顶高级水上餐厅,你去过了吗?

Discover Genting's high end swimming pool restaurant with Darwin International

Have you heard or seen this swimming pool in Genting Highlands? I don't believe it until I saw this magical place hidden so well on one of Malaysia's mountain top. That's what I am going to share this time! I've experienced special arranged limousine services from my house all the way up to Genting, hotel stay in Maxim Hotel Premier Room and of course able to enjoy fine dining breakfast at 18th floor with the magnificent view. Check out more photos below, you won't wan't to miss out this pool and fine dining place in Genting:

Private limousine services to Genting Highland

At the beginning, a limousine came to fetch us to Genting Highlands. It was all smooth journey except the occational traffic jam. There were mineral water and candies in the limousine itself.

Maxims Genting Hotel luxurious furnishing at the hotel corridor

That night we stay in Maxims Genting Hotel 11th floor, the moment when you reach the respective floor you will feel that it is way much different than the other hotels in Genting Highlands (when compared to First World). Luxurious furnishing can be noticed when you walk pass the corridor. Here's how my room looks like:

As you can see, it is really spacious inside Maxims Genting Hotel - Premier Room. The carpet, the curtain, the view (it was misty whole day so we are in the clouds), and the facilities was being brought up to the next level. The bed was soft and comfortable, I had a good night sleep. Basically this short getaway was for me to switch my 'daily office' to somewhere much more comfortable on the mountain top. I brought my laptop for work and thankfully there's Free WiFi in the room. The WiFi wasn't really fast but good enough for web surfing. There were 4 bottles of complimentary mineral water too.

Although there wasn't any bath tub in the room, the shower room itself was huge enough (can fit two people or more), two basins and a corner for grooming. I love that well-illuminated mirror and overall the lighting in the room was bright. The room was well equipped with safety box, hair-dryer, iron and ironing board.

Now let's get to the highlight of my trip to Genting Highlands - the well-hidden swimming pool and fine-dining restaurant at the 18th Floor of Maxims Crockfords Hotel. This floor is only accessible for customer who stay at Maxims 16th floor and above. Or else, you will need assistance from the hotel lobby to access to this floor. Maybe that's why this place is not crowded and appear to be peaceful at the same time. (I wonder how the room at this floor looks like, definitely looks even more classy!)

The interior and dining area of E18hteen @ Eighteen Floor Crockfords Maxim
I love the design and the way they decorate E18hteen Restaurant's interior. The plant landscape are real and the transparent glass between the restaurant and swimming pool gave me a different feel. You can choose to sit inside near the open kitchen; or dining near the pool. It seems like Maxims Genting Executive Floor (including 17-18th floor) are considered Crockfords Hotel. That's where the next level of luxury for you to explore.

There are strict dress code that you need to adhere to when you visit E18hteen (pronounced as Eighteen) Restaurant. You will need to bring your swimming suits for a change in the spacious bathroom. There were lockers available too.

From time to time, the person in charge will measure the temperature and chlorine level of the swimming pool. Unfortunately the pool was closed when I want to swim but here's some photos taken with my camera:

Initially I wanted to order a whole lobster but I was already full when I have the food above. Since I've only tried ONE food from the menu, I can't judge much about the fine dining here yet, but according to the website their menu change accordingly to the freshest ingredient of the day to give us top notch dining experience; If the weather is good, you can actually see the magnificent scenery through the windows. (I am looking forward to check it out during my next visit)

Depending on season, if you like it cold, pay a visit to Genting Highlands during year end. Then you will able to experience this misty scenery especially after a rain. Since it will be really cold if there's strong wind, it is better to prepare jacket for it. I catched some Pokemons here since there were a few Pokestops and Pokemon Gym at this mountain top. Not much special Pokemon though.
