Stayed at Avillion for a workshop in June 2013. We were lucky enough to stay for free as it was a sponsored trip.
First impression not so good. The lobby was quite small and did not look "grand" enough for a hotel that received such fine reviews. We also had to park on the other side of the road and my husband had to walk all the way from there. However, the staff at the reception counter was friendly enough and our check in was hassle free. They did not offer to bring the bags to our room until I asked them about it. A short walk into the hotel, then we started to see the better interior decors and ample facilities such as children room, pool etc
The walk to the rooms
As we were staying in a chalet, it was quite a walk to our chalet no 830. We saw the children pool, a group of staff playing traditional music, a petting zoo, infinity pool for adults only and peacocks walking round the area. The area is really clean. The chalet was situated nearer to shore and we were quite disappointed with the view as it was facing another chalet. The room size was big enough and it could accommodate our family of 5 just fine. I was curious to know if they have any rooms for disabled or people on wheelchair and one of the staff told me that yes they do have a chalet reserved for the disabled and I thought that was a nice touch and I might be able to bring my grandmother with her wheelchair here next time.
The shower was the highlight of our stay. It was so good. The tub was also the cleanest I've seen in all the hotel rooms I have stayed in Malaysia so compliments to the housekeeping staff!
The private beach is small. The staff do their best to clean the place up but it seemed like a struggling battle...The tide brings loads and loads of rubbish to shore. Definitely no swimming here. The public beach on the other end is never ending. My son had fun playing there but no swimming too.
Food was OK. Diner cost RM 98++ per head so we decided to eat out. Lunch was excellent.
Wish I had tried the SPA but was not able to due to time limit. I would suggest that anyone wanting to stay here try to get a chalet that faces the open seas...and you do not go to PD for a swim in the sea unless you don't mind the rubbish and potential skin rash !
