Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong had a vision so big that he foresaw a prosperous Malaysia of the future desiring a cool mountain holiday resort within the reach of all Malaysians. The task to transform a remote mountain into Malaysia’s premier holiday destination seemed impossible to anyone… but not for Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong.
Despite all challenges and setbacks, Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong had successfully developed Genting Highlands.
To date, Genting Highlands Resort has five hotels (namely Genting Hotel, Highlands Hotel, Resort Hotel, Theme Park Hotel and First World Hotel) and two apartment blocks (Ria and Kayangan Apartments) at the hilltop and Awana Genting Highlands Golf and Country Resort.
Genting Berhad is now a leading multinational corporation in Malaysia. The Group has constantly been acknowledged by various organisations for its exemplary leadership and management. Genting Berhad was acknowledged as the No.1 Leading Company in Malaysia for 10 years, ie in 2004 and for 9 consecutive years (1994 – 2002) by The Asian Wall Street Journal 200 (formerly Far Eastern Economic Review 200). Genting Berhad was also rated No.1 in Malaysia and No.2 in Asia for Overall Best Managed Company for the Decade by Asiamoney.
“Once the goals have been clearly defined, with the greatest amount of determination and hard work, one can conclusively realise one’s goals.”
—Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong, Founder

What we can all learn from Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong is the willingness to stand firm and show up for our vision and dreams, to commit whole-heartedly to making our goals happen and to call for the willpower to presevere and persist through challenges and setbacks, no matter how impossible the road may seem. It takes full belief and faith in oneself to achieve great success in life.
