SkyAvenue is a unique retail concept because it was conceived as an amalgamation of the things that Resorts World Genting do best: entertainment, dining and retail catered specifically to Resorts World Genting varied visitor profile.
I haven’t had the opportunity to actually go on a shopping spree at SkyAvenue yet, but I have done my fair share of delighting my tummy at SkyAvenue during my most recent visit with my wife and son at Resorts World Genting.
Having invited to experience a 36 hours of foodie indulgence, I can assure you that SkyAvenue is dedicated to all things gastronomic, with a good mix of quick service restaurants, cafes, food kiosks, mid-range and bespoke food outlets.
Here’s sharing with you what we had during our 36 hours food trail in SkyAvenue:
