My family and I in front of Amber Court. We had the opportunity to stay here for a weekend, thanks to the ‘Siapa Paling Berani’ Haunted Hotel Bloggers Challenge jointly organized by Lomo Pictures and Sam Kassim Events and Communications.

I’ve heard alot of things about Amber Court Apartment. It is rumoured to be one of the Top 10 Haunted Hotels in Asia. It is said to have frequent ghost sightings and a hot location for murder and suicide cases.

The Internet and gossip blogs would have you believe that this place is completely abandoned and haunted, but the truth is otherwise. Amber Court is definitely not an abandoned building. It’s actually occupied, just like any other apartments you’re familar with. The residence over here are mostly people who works in Genting Highlands and foreign workers who works in construction sites nearby. Some of the units here are turned into a homestay.

There are plenty of shops selling sundries and whatnot at the lobby floor. A shop providing telco service and self-service laundry shop is also available at Amber Court, alongside with a pub and small restaurants.

So, is the place really haunted? Did I experience strange stuff during my stay? I guess, while Amber Court inspired plenty of horror and mystery stories due to the paranormal and mystery stories surrounding it but truthfully, it’s just a sadly misunderstood place. Nothing strange actually happens.

On a personal level, I think Amber Court is great for honeymooners who wants privacy or holiday-goers with small children and family in tow, considering how spacious it. And unlike other hotels in Genting, cooking is allowed in Amber Court. A plus point, in my opinion.

For room bookings, you may lookup on various online hotel booking sites like Air BnB, Traveloka, Booking.com and many more.
