“If only...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Poor aircond,interrupted sleep,suddenly feel so hot,fan too far from bed,not feeling the circulated air. Door to shower area don't have water stopper below and end with flowing water from shower area's glass door thru the sink area until the toilet bowl.Sliding door's lock at the balcony already defect, cannot lock, not secure to prevent small kid from going there. Main entrance door also kind of hard to push open. Shuttle service to check out also took so long to arrive until I have to walk to the center area to wait for it to pick up my luggage. On top of all that, confirmation letter was given towards last minute, supposed check-in on Monday but letter only received on Saturday's afternoon in which rush for me obtain approval whether to apply leave on Monday or not (since Friday is last working day). If only all that is managed accordingly, it would be a nice vacation and experience for my family.

The guest services team was good and give us a good seaview Family Room.
The rooms have private balconies. Nice place to unwind and the restaurants are good. Free buggy rides from rooms to main building and vice versa.

Room Tip: Recommend the family room for small family gathering or reunion with friends/relatives. Very cosy.

My family and I had a wonder and memorable 4 days stay at Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort, in August 2014.
I don't have to repeat what others had to say about the resort. What came clear and loud was the fact that they had wonderful staff who 'manage your experience', by managing the resort in the best way possible. Very friendly staff, who went the distance to make your stay comfortable and memorable. They helped us with additional information which was so valuable. Of particular mention was Sampada Singh Thakuri, who took the roll of a good host and treated us as if we have been visiting her home. She has a pleasant personality and a helping nature, which is a valuable asset to any hospitality organisation.
We will surely visit this resort again, and hope Ms. Sampada is still there.

The staff at the Avani Resort are amazing, nothing is to much trouble, always polite, kind and smiling. Making you feel very welcome. FIVE STAR SERVICE

So best book from Monday to Saturday.

This is the second time we stay here. The first time was great and it was under difference owner then.
The services gone down hill for the price we paid. The bed was not even probably made. Towers were old. Don't ever stay near the bar as the singing starts at 9:30 pm and stops at 11pm - very loud. The food there is over priced and doesn't taste good at all. Better off drive to the near by towns like tajung sepat which has tons of good eats or just walk outside of the hotel, they are a few local eats - and only cost less than 1/3 you will pay at the hotel.
However, they do have new vans to drive you to and return to the parking lot. Swimming pool design is romantic but too small and sometime with too many kids in the pool do nothing romantic about it anymore. The whole hotel look is beautiful, quiet location but lack of customer services and great food.

From start to finish we had an amazing holiday!!!
The check in was easy, our bungalow....on the end of a trunk, was roomy and beautiful, with a balcony that looked out over the ocean.
We used all the dining outlets at the resort and they were fantastic, especially the Chinese restaurant and Perahu.
The staff over the whole resort went above and beyond, no request was to small and I would like to make special mention of Sook Chan, Swikriti, Pooja and Bunty.
And a definite must....the spa....amazing!!!
It was a great holiday and we would recommend it to anyone, and love to return!!!

Room Tip: A bungalow on the end of a trunk....perfect!!!

The hotel is quite a distance if you're travelling from KL/PJ. But once you're there, you'll love it. There's bicycles and buggy to hop on anywhere in the hotel vicinity and if you enjoy walking, you can walk from the lobby to your room while enjoying the view. Stayed in the two bedroom villa, big and comfy enough for the three of us. The terrace was spacious and a nice place for some beers/smoking sessions. The bed and the sheets are definitely one of the best things there. The breakfast and dinner buffet has a decent variety of food.
P/S: love the pasta station during dinner.
