Malaysia resort closed until May 12

The closure of Malaysian operations will be extended until May 12, the promoter of the resort’s World Genting tourist complex (pictured), which includes the country’s only licensed casino site, said in a notice posted on the accommodation’s website.

Genting Malaysia Bhd’s notice attributed the country’s prime minister to extending what the country calls a movement control order to that date as part of efforts to stem the further spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

In a televised address on Thursday, Malaysia’s prime minister, Muhidin Yashin, said the country’s movement control order should be extended to keep its people safe. But some measures would be eased slightly, he added.

Yasin said continued declines in coronavirus numbers would gradually ease more lockdown measures, including bans on all social gatherings and closures of non-essential businesses. Malaysia had recorded 5,603 cases of COVID-19 as of Thursday, official data showed.

In a March 17 filing with Bursa Malaysia, Genting Malaysia confirmed the closure of casino resorts and other Malaysian non-gaming resorts from the initial March 18 to March 31. Resorts World Genting in late March said the closure would be extended until April 14, after which the suspension would be extended to April 28.

The operator of Resort World Genting, which has a theme park located in the Genting Highlands near the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, confirmed in its most recent statement announcing the suspension until mid-May that the closures also apply to several non-game resorts operating in Malaysia, Resort World Awana, Resort World Kijal and Resort World Langkawi.

“Resort operations will resume once the movement control order is lifted. We will continue to monitor the situation and make the necessary announcements as more information becomes available,” the resort’s publicist said.

“Despite the temporary closure, we are confident that we have already stepped up our strict hygiene practices to protect the health and safety of all our guests and employees. This will allow us to have a safe and enjoyable experience when reopening.”

Banking group Nomura said in a note on Thursday that it expects annual sales in Genting Malaysia to return to 2019 levels only in 2022 through a “tick” recovery.
