The spa

The spa at the Genting features a 15-metre pool with heated pool loungers, a sauna, gym, outdoor hot tub, salt cave and a range of health and beauty treatments.

If you fancy a day of just lounging around the pool you can do just that, but if not the spa also offers skin rejuvenation, cellulite treatments, muscle toning and hair removal. Once you’re pampered and plucked to perfection you can always have a massage to relax, or you can jump straight to the massage if you prefer.

Cinema and shops

As well as hosting the Genting Casino and hotel, Resorts World Birmingham is also home to an IMAX cinema and many outlet stores such as Antler, Bench, Trespass, Ernest Jones and more. So if you need to take a break from the rigour of the casino floor you can always take in a movie or indulge in some retail therapy.
