Hard Rock Hotel is coming to Genting Highlands!
As fans of Hard Rock Hotels, we are thrilled to witness the historical event of rock and roll landing in Genting Highlands!
We were there to witness the signing agreement between HR RESORT & RESIDENCES and HARD ROCK INTERNATIONAL; transforming the upcoming Hard Rock Genting Highlands into the largest of its kind in Asia. Asia’s largest Hard Rock Hotel, with 1001 rooms and suites, is due to open at King’s Park Genting Highlands in 2027, turning Hard Rock Genting Highlands into the largest in Asia.
A historic milestone achieved – HR Resort & Residences and Hard Rock International team bringing Asia’s largest Hard Rock to King’s Park.

Located in the heart of the 130-million-year-old tropical jungle on the mid-hills of Genting Highlands, HR Hotel & Residences Sdn Bhd aims to introduce a world-class entertainment experience by fusing the tenacious spirit of Hard Rock with the unparalleled beauty of King’s Park, an integrated entertainment hub and the first Central Business District (CBD) at 1,000m above the sea level with 365 days of cool weather.
King’s Park Genting Highlands is a colossal mega development that takes advantage of the booming tourism industry in the region thanks to a successful partnership between Yuk Tung Group and the Association for the Promotion of Higher Education in Malaysia (APHEM). Set to become Genting Highland’s first Central Business District (CBD), it spans a massive 61 hectares of freehold land and has an integrated entertainment hub that seamlessly combines commercial experiences with recreational delights.
This massive RM10 billion gross development value project is set up well to take advantage of the improving investment climate in the heart of Genting. A staggering 53 million tourists are expected to visit Genting Highlands by 2026, with a catchment area of nearly 700,000 people within a 5-kilometer radius.
Taking cues from colonial and historical architecture, the King’s Park development displays a state-of-the-art 2,000-meter-long pedestrian boulevard with a 500-meter riverside patio and a total of 360 businesses spread throughout 12 beautifully built blocks. The approximately 18,680 square meters of ‘Truly Asia Cultural Streets’ is an ode to our rich East-Asian heritage and will only add to the splendour of King’s Park.
The project also plans to include a halal retail zone and a halal luxury boutique hotel that will welcome Muslim guests from all around the world. This promotes cultural awareness, inclusion and diversity by capitalizing on the expanding demand for halal-friendly vacation spots and eateries.
King’s Park will have a large area set aside for eco-sports and mountain biking routes, perfect for thrill and adventure-seekers alike. Other attractions such as branded theme parks and the world’s largest terrarium, which spans an astonishing 600 meters, are also within easy walking distance, adding to the charm of King’s Park.
The inauguration of Accor’s famous Swissôtel brand within King’s Park Genting Highlands in 2028 will dovetail around the much-anticipated Hard Rock Genting Highlands, which is scheduled for a grand opening in 2027.
There is a little doubt that King’s Park Genting Highland, as an integrated entertainment hub and Central Business District (CBD), will have plenty of hotel rooms and exciting experiences to accommodate to the discerning needs of every traveler, tourist, backpacker, or visitor.
