The only resort with an in-house Original Gelato Brand


Is there anyone out there who hasn’t tasted an ice cream before? Ice creams are one of the top pick desserts for both the young and the old. True enough, eating an ice cream could be a guilty pleasure but with more ice cream recipes nowadays, especially those with reduced fat, one could enjoy the silky and smooth ice cream without guilt. The lower percentage of fat is a plus point of the ice cream and it is sterilised by the UHT method. There is much focus on nutrients and hence, the product has no added colours, preservatives and additives.


Resorts World Genting’s ITALGELato provides unique creations, exclusive designs, funky and colourful styles of ice creams with its presentation, texture and taste all originating from Venice in Italy. The quality ingredients used such as milk and mixture are imported directly from Italy which gives the ice creams their very own exquisite flavours. Milk plays an important role in ice cream making and only the best quality milk product is utilised in creating the resort’s ice cream products.


Edward Holloway, the resort’s Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations, first came up wth the idea of the resort’s very own ice cream brand. “We were brainstorming concepts for our new theme park and started researching how to achieve a perfect Italian Gelato here in Malaysia. As our innovation team did a deep dive into the processes and product, we came up with ITALGELato and for fun, we set up a small stall during the school holidays. We now have four and growing! The resort is made popular for its entertainment for children, the young and young at heart. Everything we do, we do it with family in mind from magic shows to theme park and not forgetting food.” says Edward Holloway.

How awesome right? I got the privilege to coat my very own ice cream! Firstly, you got to dip the ice cream into the coating of your choice.  You may wait for the first coating to dry first before dipping it into the second coating if you wish to make a multi-colour ice cream coating. Secondly, you choose the toppings you wish to decorate on your ice cream. Thirdly, quickly put the ice cream to freeze so that the coating and all would stay neat.
