Tens of thousands of visitors took advantage of the long weekend to make a trip up to the resort for the party of a lifetime. The nightlife venue was masterminded by the nightlife experts behind Zouk Singapore, voted as the best club in Asia for the last 10 years by industry bible DJ Mag. Zouk Genting promises a complete experience with the Zouk Genting main stage, hip-hop club Empire by Zouk, gaming bar RedTail by Zouk, RedTail Karaoke and upcoming vibe dining restaurant FUHU Restaurant & Bar all in over 35,000 square feet of space.

Long lines formed outside the club ahead of its opening hours and officiating the ribbon cutting event was Mr Hui Lim, Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Director of Genting Malaysia Berhad; Mr Andrew Li, CEO of Zouk Group; Mr Lee Thiam Kit, Head of Business Operations & Strategies; Dato’ Edward Holloway, Executive Vice President of Leisure and Hospitality and Joseph Ryan, Director of Special Projects and General Manager of Zouk Genting.

R3HAB wowed the crowd during his two-hour long set that kept the party going until 3.00am. Partygoers vibed to one of the world’s best DJs who is also known for his
talents as a record producer and remixer at Zouk Genting who was on hand as the main
act for the grand opening. Dutch-Moroccan talent Fadil El Ghoul, better known as R3HAB
has been hailed by the likes of Forbes and Billboard Magazine as the future of his craft with
past hits such as ‘Pump The Party’ and ‘Prutata’ with Afrojack. Before starting his set, he said, “I love visiting Malaysia and I’ve been playing here since 2011. Zouk is also known to have a dedicated fan base. It’s great to be here because the weather downtown is hot but as you make the drive up it gets nice and cold.”

With Zouk being the training ground of many local DJs, heading the opening set was Malaysian-born talents BATE who have always showcased high energy sets at major events and festivals across the region, including Future Music Festival Asia, Zouk Out, and the much talked about ‘Asia’s Largest Festival at Sea’: It’s TheShip. To date, BATE has performed in Melbourne, Seoul, Bangkok, and Singapore, and has supported the likes of Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa, Tiesto, Zedd, and Deadmau5 on tour. Bate have had the pleasure of playing Zouk Genting already and stated, “Zouk Genting feels like a home to us due to the energy, the state of the art sound and lighting system combined with a great team.”
