Historic Unveiling: The Apex of Luxury Meets Rock ‘n’ Roll at King’s Park.
In a groundbreaking announcement that has sent ripples through the global hospitality industry, HR Resort & Residences Sdn Bhd has proudly proclaimed its monumental collaboration with the iconic Hard Rock International. This synergy is set to culminate in the launch of Asia’s most expansive Hard Rock Hotel, nestled in the picturesque King’s Park Genting Highlands, boasting a staggering 1001 rooms and suites.
This prodigious venture finds its home in King’s Park, a vibrant Central Business District (CBD) perched 1,000 meters above sea level. With the allure of year-round temperate climates, it offers guests an exclusive blend of world-class entertainment set against the backdrop of a 130-million-year-old tropical haven.
Mr. Sean Chen, Executive Vice President of King’s Park, remarked, “This collaboration is not just a partnership; it’s a symphony of luxury, rock ‘n’ roll, and unparalleled hospitality.” A guitar enthusiast, Chen emphasized the distinctiveness of the Hard Rock Genting Highlands, emphasizing its positioning as the zenith in Asia, both in scale and opulence.
The Hard Rock brand, synonymous with vibrant music and effervescent entertainment, matches King’s Park’s grandeur. In Todd Hricko’s words, Senior Vice President of Hard Rock International, “King’s Park embodies our spirit. It’s where iconic music meets quintessential luxury.”
Guests of the soon-to-be-launched hotel can expect an immersive experience: from the “Rock Shop” with its vast 200 square meters of Hard Rock memorabilia to the scintillating energy of nightly performances in the chic lounge. Add an array of dining destinations, the signature Rock Spa, and an enviable heated pool, and you have the makings of an unmatched getaway.
King’s Park Genting Highlands, a 61-hectare mega-development, is poised to harness the burgeoning tourism market. Thanks to the strategic collaboration between the Yuk Tung Group and the Association for the Promotion of Higher Education in Malaysia (APHEM), it’s a beacon for leisure and commerce.
Celebrating the rich tapestry of East-Asian culture, King’s Park boasts the ‘Truly Asia Cultural Streets,’ a sprawling 18,680-square meter tribute to tradition seamlessly intertwined with modernity. Moreover, the site plans to champion cultural inclusion with a designated halal retail zone and a luxury halal boutique hotel catering to an international Muslim clientele.
Adventure enthusiasts aren’t left behind, with vast terrains dedicated to eco-sports and exhilarating mountain biking trails. And with the inauguration of the renowned Swissôtel brand in 2028, following the Hard Rock’s 2027 launch, there’s no doubting King’s Park’s commitment to world-class hospitality.
