There was an offer online, making the stay somewhat decent value for money. However, we soon found out that we would rather fork out the extra couple of ringgit a night to stay at a more decent hotel. After traveling 4 hours from KL, we found the hotel to be run down and simply empty. This hotel would have been... More

Extremely slow and CBA service! Staff were on their phones, chatting as a group while guests were waiting to be served. Has not been maintained since it was built. Everything in the rooms (bedding, carpet, curtains, TV, hairdryer) screamed 80's, with no attempt to update or fix big or small damages. Yet they were building works (constant drilling during the...

Always stay at Awana Kijal due to proximity to workplace in Paka. The Room has dated quite a bit since I first stay there years ago. The Restaurant served good breakfast. The WIFI is troublesome to use as I have to keep going to the reception to buy WIFI for daily use. The WIFI signal is also not consistent and... More

We were here for a night in June 14. This hotel room was a total disappointment, old, stain wall, ants crawling on coffee table, bathroom and beds. The floor is dirty, especially near curtain. Old bed sheets. The breakfast food is so bad. May be i was the "bad luck" one who stay in the worst room in the hotel.... More

I have been to this hotel on numerous occasions of business and personal trips. One of the most decent hotel in east coast of Malaysia and they managed to maintain the place despite it has been in business for more than 20 years. The hotel layout is running parallel to the coastal line of Kijal facing South China Sea. Despite... More

I stayed here and went back happy. I was attracted to this hotel, this hotel, Awana Kijal or just the resort name is great!

I stayed here on business in May 2013, for two nights. The hotel is situated right on the beach and is stunningly designed, with a highly impressive atrium which features restaurants and the reception. Staff are very helpful and breakfast was varied and of a good standard. Rooms are rather tired, but are perfectly clean and have everything you could... More

Was staying here for two nights. Breakfast was good, the spread had western and local mix. Good enough for my simple requirements. Location was a bit out of the way but the restaurants and shops just outside the entrance had very decent and affordable meals. The residents of the service apartments mostly eat there. The beach was clean and mostly... More
