“Decent Hotel & Relaxed Environment”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Located just beside the beach, this hotel is ideal for people who are looking for relaxing trip. Doing nothing else but just relax at the hotel or even the beach, then this hotel is definitely a choice when you visit Kijal. Facility within the hotel itself include swimming pools, cycling and other gaming facilities are available so you don't have to be bored even you do not come with a car.

Room is adequately clean, giving you a comfortable sleep. Room size is good enough for a family of 5 to stay in a single room (Depending on the type of room taken) Water temperature and volume is good, so rest assured that a comfortable shower is there already.

For traveler who travel with a car, then drive out and find some places to eat would be ideal. Roads in Kijal is narrow and small, so you could find a food stall / restaurant beside the narrow road easily, do stop by when you see a local restaurant beside the road and try out the malay cuisine prepared, price ranged from RM15 to RM20 per person depending on what is ordered.

The hotel is also relatively near to a river where you can watch firefly in Sungai Yak Yah, do ask the hotel reception on direction or hire a cab will do. But beware of the possibility of nasty charges imposed, so do ask the full price in advance before you go.

The building itself was pretty old, so were the facilities - so if you liked shiny new things, it might not be a place for you; otherwise, the hotel is a decent place to stay. The beach view was nice, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. Most of the staff were very helpful and friendly, but some need to brush up their hospitality.

Kids will surely enjoy this resort, their amenities and foods are good. This resort is one of the best.
If you want to go on the nearby attractions, they have available package tours. But oopppss i do not think you can reach the place conveniently if you are going to commute with public transport, a cab will do.

I was there for a training course at the refineries fire grounds. I probably would not venture over to this side of Malaysia but the Awana was an enjoyable stay. Plenty of activities and the food was ok. Beware that the hotel is dry so finding that beer at end of the day can be a challenge. The rooms were a step back into the 80's but very clean and tidy. Hotel staff and service was excellent.
Enjoyed my time there.

also a good venue for corporate family day.

This is not a bad hotel at all! Particularly impressed with the kids facilities.....great pool, kids playground area and the kiddies club....perfect for kids!
Food was nce, a reasonable choice.
Room was comfortable...while it could do with a little updating it is by no means the worse I have stayed at.
Staff were professional and friendly.

We went to the Awana Kijal for a weekend of golf and relaxation. The hotel was ok the rooms are a bit dated, bathrooms could definitely do with a renovation. However the hotel is very definitely not 5 stars as it says on their website more a 3 star!!!The staff was very very pleasant and the golf course is nice, not too challenging! However when we wanted to have a nice ice cold beer after our round of golf we were told that no alcohol is being served in the hotel, except in the pub bar (in the middle of the hotel) and only after 7.30 pm!! So our idea of having a nice drink on the beach or terrace late afternoon went down the drain!!! All the restaurants were closed for dinner except for the coffee shop on the ground floor and this was on a Friday night !!!The food was good but no wine of course!!! think that the hotel should state in their website that they have this no alcohol policy! We do understand the local customs and respect these but it would be nice to have know about this before. We went to the Hyatt Kuantan after 1 night, the Hyatt is a much better hotel, you pay a bit more but it's worth it, plus you can have a nice drink when you want to!! We are not really big drinkers but do enjoy a glass of beer or wine when we want to, we were not given that option in the Awana Kijal!
