This hotel has two sections , the main block is the hotel tower and the timeshare units are further inside and disconnected from the main building. The hotel unit is serviced and has regular housekeeping and room service , not the timeshare units though everyone could use the common facilities.
The 2BR unit we got from RCI was in the timeshare unit , no services were available from the hotel but had the advantages of being clean , well equipped with a full kitchen and even had a functional jacuzzi in the bathroom. Compared to other rooms available in the area we got this for next to free through RCI.
This hotel is not at the top of the mountain , it is at the halfway mark , but a regular free shuttle running once every hour takes you to the First World Hotel at the top in 20 minutes. And if you don't mind shelling out RM 6 for a cable car ride up the mountain you have another shuttle running every half hour taking you to the Skyway cable car lower station in less than 10 minutes.
Kuala Lumpur is just 45 minutes away on the hourly express bus service from the Skyway lower station. The fare is ridiculously cheap at RM 4.30 , it makes a lot of sense to stay at this resort and visit KL rather than stay in that hot humid hell of a city paying big bucks for a halfway decent aircon room! .
The golf course is very scenic , they allow non-players in after 6PM for a stroll. A very nice , pleasant walk. I don't know how good the course is for the players though.
The disadvantages are that the unit has no airconditioning which is required at the lower altitude but the absence may not be felt by many as the weather is pleasantly cool most of the year.
