Genting Highlands, that cool, misty hill station – just a stone’s throw away from the heat of KL City, it’s a legitimate Malaysian icon.
While many of Genting’s transient visitors come for the bright lights and adrenaline rush of the hilltop casinos and amusement parks, others venture up Genting’s slopes for more leisurely activities: relaxing rounds of golf, idyllic horseback rides across wide open meadows, and peaceful treks among giant ferns in temperate forests.
Whatever tickles your fancy, we dare you to say that you wouldn’t want to linger just a little bit longer. Well, if you’re looking for a reason to stay, we at PropertyGuru Malaysia are giving you three!
1) A Highlight of Your Investment Portfolio
With an oversupply of residential units and a sluggish outlook for the Kuala Lumpur property market in the year ahead, savvy investors are looking beyond KLCC, towards other locations with great potential for growth.
One such up-and-coming hotspot is Genting Highlands. The City of Entertainment is in the midst of a grand transformation as part of its 10-year Genting Integrated Tourism Plan (GITP), launched in 2013. As the GITP enters its final phase, Genting is soon expected to reclaim its place as the country’s top leisure destination.
Genting expects to welcome 30 million visitors this year, bringing along with it more employment opportunities and a surge in property demand, both for purchase and investment. To meet this demand, a 112-acre slice of heaven nestled in the Genting hillside is currently being transformed into the aptly named Tropicana Grandhill.
Tropicana Grandhill is the first master-planned township in Genting, a sprawling integrated community of serviced residences, educational facilities, hospitality lodging, and commercial hub catering to fashion, dining, business, and wellness needs.
Each residential unit at TwinPines is move-in ready, with furnishings curated both for timeless style and elegant practicality. All bedrooms are bathed in natural sunlight, which gently transition to twinkling night-time views of the Genting hilltop in the north-east, or KL City in the south-west. Master bedrooms are elevated with decadent king-sized beds perfect for snuggling in on chilly nights.
To optimise both security and rental practicality, there are four layout types that come equipped with a dual-key system, in addition to each unit having a sophisticated digital locking mechanism, which allows for flexible and independent living arrangements.
Investors interested in short-term returns can confidently benchmark their potential gains with comparable properties in the area, which have shown impressive average rental yields of between 3.7% to 5.7%. For those focused on the long-term, prospects are even more promising as these freehold units are expected to appreciate dramatically with the culmination of the GITP in 2023, as well as the ongoing expansion of the Tropicana Grandhill megaproject over the next 20 years.
2) A Rejuvenating Home Away from Home
With Malaysia being world-famous for having one of highest number of public holidays in the world, a well-deserved weekend getaway is never too far away. This is why investing in cosy holiday homes are especially popular among the affluent in Malaysia.
Residential developments nestled in the undulating border hills of Selangor and Pahang have always been a popular choice for the lucky ones who can afford life’s little luxuries, due to its location close to the city and its cool, refreshing atmosphere.
The enviable collection of residences at Tropicana Grandhill are expected to soon join this exclusive cohort, starting with the magnificent TwinPines Serviced Suites. With a free-form heated pool as its centrepiece, TwinPines’ tropical-themed, family-friendly facilities charmingly contrast with the breath-taking 360° mountain vistas and crisp highland breeze.
Idyllic childhood memories are just waiting to be created in the lush parks and gardens that envelop TwinPines. And for bigger kids and adults who are young-at-heart, Tropicana Grandhill also has plenty of outdoor facilities which are seamlessly integrated into the untouched natural forests.
For a truly holiday home feel, TwinPines thoughtfully features bespoke hotel-style amenities and on-demand concierge services, ensuring that your second home in the clouds stands ready to welcome you and your family whenever wanderlust strikes.
3) An Immersive Haven for Your Overall Wellbeing
Focusing on six key pillars that are catered to creating the ultimate in holistic living, Tropicana Grandhill is a masterplan which emphasises on the residential, commercial, education, wellness, nature, and silver hair components.
TwinPines takes the proverbial residential cake with its superb, resort-styled living spaces. A home in the skies would be especially appealing to those who wish to escape the hectic pace of the city life, and allow the stress to just melt away.
The commercial pillar is fulfilled with elements such as a retail street, commercial centre, entertainment outlets, mountain view cafés, and cantilevered decks which allow you to marvel in the immersive beauty of the verdant environs.
To create an all-inclusive haven, a unique setting that hosts educational institutions is also provided for. It allows the bright, young, inquisitive minds to experience a close-to-nature environment.
Blooming within nature’s embrace, Genting Highlands is the perfect setting for those committed to living an active lifestyle. Dedicated parks that are poised to be the social heart of the masterplan offer crisp, invigorating air of the mountains, which is widely known to promote good health and vitality.
For the silver-haired folks, being close to nature has been found to reduce the risk of type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, premature death, preterm birth, stress, and high blood pressure.
