The Haunted Amber Court: Ghosts of Malaysia

Amber Court, Genting Highlands

Genting Highlands is a sought after retreat for those in Malaysia. Being situated on the peak of Mount Ulu Kali, it provides visitors with sweeping views, as well as a world-class casino, resort and theme parks. However, there is a darker side to this tourist destination, as it is home to one of the most haunted buildings in the country, known as Amber Court.

Ghosts of Amber Court

Amber Court is a towering, though dilapidated, apartment complex hidden within the Malaysian mountainside. Just a short drive from the popular Genting Highlands resort it is mainly used as housing for staff who keep the casinos running.

Over the years many have reported having paranormal encounters within the building. One of the most common forms of activity is to sight the apparition of a ghostly woman walking around the complex before disappearing into nothingness.

Security guards at the building have also seen and felt unnatural sensations around the building, especially in its lower levels and underground car park. This is likely the reason why security dislike having to monitor these particular areas of Amber Court, claiming they are too scary.

Coincidentally and rather fittingly, Amber Court was also used as the setting for a horror movie named ‘Haunted Hotel.’ Supposedly, some of the cast members on this project actually had paranormal experiences within the building during the filming. It caused them to fear Amber Court and adds more weight to the building’s haunted reputation.

Visiting the Haunted Amber Court

Amber Court is a residential apartment complex that is not able to be visited by the general public. It is also patrolled by security who don’t allow visitors entry to the building. The complex lies just a short drive from the majority of attractions in the Genting Highlands areas.

      Hi Isa! Thanks for reading. There are many spooky stories about the Amber Court Hotel, yet people actually live inside the building. It is also hard to compare it to the Biltmore Hotel, as each of the buildings have their own history and folklore. Hope this helps!

    15 to 20 years back eventually i and a group of my friends have stayed there before. We drove 2 cars from Singapore to Genting Highlands, as it was a sudden road trip decision, we did not book any hotel in advance only to realise upon reaching that all hotel rooms were fully booked. We were told by 1 of the local to try our luck at this hotel and so we did. We managed to get a room on the 13th floor. It was like a apartment with a kitchen , living room and 2 bedroom. The apartment was full of moths. Something happen that night that creep the 7 of us which made us almost shit in our pants. We eventually check out the next day and head back to Singapore. I will never ever stay in that place again…

      Wow, that’s cool, thanks for sharing. Unfortunately at the time I visited the place was not able to be booked. I would have loved to stay there.

    Your story isn’t accurate. The general public is allowed to stay here. It’s a hotel and an apartment complex. There’s even a Youtube video from the Free Documentary channel.

      During my visit in 2019, it definitely was not open to the public, and was not operating as a hotel – I was refused entry. It was a private appartment complex offering long term accomodation for workers at Genting Highland only. Members of the public were not permitted. Maybe things have changed since? Either way, I can only write about my experience.

    I have stayed at the hotel last month. I don’t have any bad experience. In fact the hotel is very good. The night view at 21st floor is just superb. My ratings for this hotel is 8/10.
