News travels fast when it comes to entertainment tourism in Kuala Lumpur, and the hottest news in town is about the new Zouk Genting opening in 2018. The top entertainment club in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore is now opening in Genting Highlands, Pahang.
Zouk Genting will be the highest club in Malaysia as Genting Highlands is located at a height of 1,865 meters or 6,118 feet above sea level. This mountain entertainment resort is also home to the only casino in Malaysia, a series of three to five star hotels, an entertainment hub and a soon to come world class theme park.
In the last few years, news of the first 20th Century Fox Theme Park in Malaysia is to open in Genting Highlands by 2018. With Zouk Genting combined together, this will definitely make Genting the place to visit in Malaysia.

No official date has been announced, but from other lifestyle sources, it is stated that Zouk Genting will open in mid year around June of 2018. Again, this is not official and as of 15th December 2017, there has been no official news on this.
While Genting Highlands is touted to be one of the top entertainment destinations for tourism and leisure in 2018, the opening of Zouk Genting is definitely adding strong credibility to this highland resort destination.
Zouk is a household name in the youth circle, namely for bringing in world renown DJ's to perform and for some of their incredible events. With the opening of Zouk Genting, you can be sure that they will be bringing in some of the Top 10 DJ's in the world for the grand opening.
Stay tuned for official announcements of this as when I get the information, I will share it here. One thing is for sure, you can expect Zouk to bring the 'Dare to be different' concept to Genting.
What is Zouk Genting?
Zouk is a well known brand when it comes to nightlife and entertainment in Singapore and Malaysia. In 2015, Genting Hong Kong bought over the Zouk brand in a tactical move to incorporate the brand into their lifestyle and entertainment business.
Zouk Genting is slated to be one of the classiest clubs created, offering a 4-in-1 concept for clubbers, with a special day club area that has a swimming pool facing the 20th Century Fox theme park.
For sound and lighting, you can expect the best in the world as Genting has brought in the top sound architects and lighting specialist people from Las Vegas.
In a bid to strengthen themselves with the opening of the first 20th Century Fox World theme park in Malaysia and the world, Zouk Genting will be one of the highlights targeted toward the millennial traveler visiting here.

This concept bar is targeted towards the lifestyle consumers that head up the highlands. Red Tail Genting is sized around 4,300 square feet and can accommodate around 150 people. It will also be located just next to the Zouk Day Club Pool.
