Uniquely Cool Delights at Resorts World Genting
The only resort with an in-house Original Gelato brand

Eating ice cream is considered a guilty pleasure but these days there are ice cream recipes that allow one to enjoy the rich and scrumptious dessert without guilt.

At Resorts World Genting, the deliciously silky and tangy delight comes with reduced fat and is available in various funky and colorful styles, typical of true Italian class.

The resort is the only one producing an in-house ice cream brand, so is rightly proud of its unique creations that owe their exquisite flavors to the fact that the ingredients used such as milk and mixture, are imported from Italy. Compare to the usual ice cream, Gelato has less fat in the base and less air churned into it during the freezing process.

We are grateful to have a chance to have a closer look on the Gelato ice cream making process by the chef.

The lower percentage of fat, of course, is another plus point of the ice cream that is
sterilised by the UHT method. There is much focus on nutrients, hence the product has no added colours, preservatives and additives.

The presentation, texture and taste all originated from Venice in Italy.

The final touch

The flavours are divided into five choices of Gelato, Sorbeto, Yogurt base, Stick Ice Cream and Minou Ice Cream


There are two signature gelato flavours and must try are the Gelato Cioccolato Fondente (Dark Chocolate) and Gelato Arancia Cheese Cake (Orange Cheese Cake). The Gelato Cioccolato Fondente uses Belgium dark which means 99% of pure chocolate.

Other Gelato includes, Vaniglia (Vanilla), Straciatella (Cream & Chocolate), Rocher, Tiramisu, Coppel del Nono old recipe, Morbidella (Cookies Flavor), Affogato Amarena (Mix Red Berries), Nocciola (Hazelnut), Biscotto alla Cioccolato (Peanut and Chocolate), Red Velvet and Black Forest which is new flavor).

Top with many choices of toppings. Chef explained how to coat the ice cream

Each bloggers have the chance to try to make their own ice cream.

Beautifully done.

  As for Stick Ice Cream and Minou Ice Cream, they each come in five distinctive flavours, namely lemon, hazelnut, pistachio, strawberry and Gianduja(Chocolate & Hazelnut). They are priced at RM9.50 for sticks and RM7.50 for minou.

The ice-creams are sold at RM9.50 for one flavor, RM19.00 for two flavors, RM28.50 for three flavors and RM38.00 for four flavors. The ice-creams are also sold in mini-cones. For a plate of 8 pieces of mini-cones is priced at RM20.00 and for 12 pieces at RM26.00.

Ice cream is served in your choice of cone that comes in four different flavors, namely chocolate, rose, green tea and charcoal or in a cup.

Ice cream lovers can enjoy the dessert from 10am to 10pm daily at Lobby Café, at First World Plaza. Having a cup of smooth gelato ice cream is simply a wonderful treat especially on the cooling day at Genting.
