Tropicana Grandhill Twin Pines Genting Highlands

Tropicana Grandhill Twine Pines is another condominium project at Genting Highlands. According to its master plan, it is more like a new township.

Location is at higher latitude than Genting Permai.

Personally, I own a unit at Windmill Upon Hills condominium. It is another competition in the making for my unit.

So I check my competition whether it is a real threat to my unit or whether it is good potential investment.

The unit is fully furnished, floor is not laminated so you will have cold feet at this unit. Balcony is a bit small compared to my unit.

It is more expensive per sqft vs Windmill Upon Hills.

Conclusion

For me it is not a real threat to Windmill Upon Hills because:

  • Quite far from amenities, except if all the planned amenities within the township are well implemented
  • More expensive per sqft with nearly similar furnishing / facilities / features but balcony is much smaller.

Anyway different kind of guests will have different needs and what they are looking for. So Tropicana Grandhill Twin Pines could still have its own guests fan.

Midhills Homestay Genting Highland Review – My 2 Nights Stay

Short Vacation at Genting Highlands

We went to Genting Highlands for short relaxing vacation. We needed 3 bedrooms as we have 7 family members, 4 adults and 3 kids.

For our stays, we chose AirBNB because it gives as better room space, kitchen area and better pricing compared to hotels. Furthermore there are lots of new condominium in Genting Highlands.

We have few options to choose for:
1) Geo 38
2) Vista Residence
3) Midhills

We decided to stay in Midhills because it offered best price for 3 bedrooms.

Water pressure at Midhill is superbly good. When you are showering, you feel awesome by the water pressure.

Floor is tiles so a bit cold at nigth.

The unit doesn’t provide aircond only ceiling fan. But Genting Highland is already cold, so you can sleep well at night without the aircond.

The LED TV doesnt have USB port to play my movies inside my external hardisk. It has NJOI and internet. Network coverage is a bit bad here . Only 3G so internet a bit slow.

Recommendation

I recommend MidHills Condominium because it offers:

1) Best value for money
2) The unit I stays is really cozy and provided with lots of simple things but give lots of convenient.

The Unit Layout

I stayed inside a unit of 2+1 bedrooms, size of 999 sqft. The third room doesn’t have a wall, so the owner did a sliding door as separator for the third bedroom.

IBN Highlands City in Genting Permai

IBN Highlands City in Genting Permai is new residential condominium with commercial area of shop lots and hotel. Hotel is run by Gloria, a hotel management company from China.

The project is comprising of 12 blocks of leasehold service apartments. In the commercial area, it is planned to have cinema which is good if it comes true! The commercial area will be managed by IBN itself which I think it is good to ensure survival and exclusivity of the area.

The project is now selling its second block. First block is fully sold out. Mostly buyers for first block are foreigners from China. The whole project is expected to be completed in 9 years time.

Minimum selling price is over RM1 million before discount.

When I visited the show unit, it was luxurious concept, with bath tub for each unit located at balcony. It is fully furnished from furniture till electrical appliances.

Location

Located in Genting Permai and near to Midhills condominium.

Investment Opinion

What is my opinion on this property? For me it is targeted for high end clientele and rich tourists. Besides, tourists who wants to experience luxurious living in Genting are also the potential target customers.

So if you are investors you should target these kind of customers.

Genting Highlands – weekend gateway!

Genting Highlands is one of the tourism products and attractions in Malaysia especially for the Malaysian and tourists from Singapore and other countries.

It is located in Bentong, Pahang ~ consider one of the nearest weekend gateway for KL and Selangor folks.

Attractions? (will only share places that i have been previously and still need to continue exploring)

Genting Theme Park (indoor and outdoor) – 1 day is not enough to explore all the games and rides. –RW Genting

Genting Highlands Premium Outlet – actually there are few other premium outlets existed before this one like Johor Premium Outlet (been here 2-3 times), Melaka Premium Outlet (been here once) and Mitsui Outlet in Sepang (never been). But the different between all this outlet is the climate aka temperature .. you don’t need to queue and tour around in a hot weather and it is hard to do shopping when you bringing kids and they will get cranky or moody if its hot. (shopping make easy).  –GHPO

Stays?

to come here make sure no last minute booking.. sure full. One week booking before stay date also not recommended cos its fast selling and some sold out (left not much option). Here are the places that i have stayed before;

Awana Hotel, Genting  –Awana

Last time we stayed if not mistaken the Family Suite which have 1 room and 1 hall + 2 rooms at upper floor. Cozy place but since we book hotel only for sleep and most of the time we are enjoying the theme park.. so i can say oklaahhh…

Trouble is only check in time ~ took us like forever to settle. Should check in at 3.00 pm but delays up till 4++pm and it just ruined our scheduled… sigh!

Hotel Seri Malaysia, Genting — Seri Malaysia

Been here twice – first because all hotels up there fully book and second because we wanna recce that Goh Tong area. So i can say the room is so so .. i had problem where the plug point are limited to TV and mini-fridge. The only plug point that should reserve to guest for Phone charging are spoil. When give suggestions to the staff to provide us the extension plug pun tak boleh solve … sigh lagi!

Colmar Tropicale – –Colmar

Nice place and view.. but jauh sikit kalau intention nak naik Genting! Masa pergi it was so cold and foggy and best thing that i can remember was their porridge.. thumbs up! 1-2 days is enough to explore its surroundings.

Ok thats all!
