“Don't do it...”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

This place is really really strange... all i can say it was an 'experience'. We paid RM180 for a 2 bed apartment.. the only good thing about it was the fabulous view.. apart from that, the furniture is very dated, no hot water (we had to boil the kettle to fill a bucket for a hot sponge bath) corridors made me feel like i was walking into an asylum. At night there was loud loud music coming from the apt next door and what sounded like a party going on in the car park and the windows didn't close properly so we couldn't block the noise out! Fortunately we had a tonne of fun at the theme park so it made up for the shocking accom, but i guess you cant expect too much for AUD60/night.

I hope the management will looked over this matter seriously.

The whole apartment need to be revamp, especially the rooms need to be clean, beds need to be change.

Hopefully i could see changes.

The views are fantastic in the morning.

Room Tip: Views are fantastic. Rooms need to be renovated.

Budget apartment for unplanned/coincidently family/friends trip. A bit far away from the main theme park. But for me, still ok. You just follow the staff's usual route to their workplace, a shortcut anyway.
The apartment with 2 bedrooms, small kitchen and complete living hall set. What can I say, it is a moderate apartment. No towels. No toiletries. There is a small shop downstairs open 24hours where you can found maggi, drinks, junk foods for late night/over night activities.

We booked our stay with Agoda, and since the other hotels we booked were quite good,we expected something similar-clean,comfortable and value for money.All the other hotels were fully booked for Go-Genting Day,and it was only for 1 night,but it was a nightmare. There was no office or sign for us to Check in to.We asked around at the laundry and were told to go up to an apartment,in an awful smelly corridor.The lady gave us a key for the apartment in the next building. there were no towels,no phone,and very old dirty bathrooms.We went back and she reluctantly gave us towels.
Later that night we noticed there were no top sheets for the smelly dirty blankets. We called a mobile number we had been given, and were sent a message asking us who we were and what we wanted.After texting repeatedly,a woman came up to the apartment with even more dirty quilts and no sheets.It was disgusting,and we did not sleep well at all in the cockroach infested apartment.We would not recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Do not go to this Hotel.

Went to this apartment on 5/11/12 with the whole class of Form 4 students. Expected to stay at First World hotel, then it was changed to Kayangan Apartment. I thought it was still OK, until when we arrived Genting, we got to know that we were actually going to stay at this Ria Apartment. I have read reviews on this apartment before hand and it creeps me out that I have to stay for a night.

We arrived at the apartment at 11 A.M and found out that our apartment is not ready yet. We put our bag in the office, then went straight to the theme park. We then returned to our apartment at around 11:45 P.M.

After we took our bag from the office, we went into the lift, suddenly, the elevator juddered. It stopped and was not going up or down for about 15 seconds. We were quite panic by then, The doors quickly open after that. Then... The lights in the elevator turned itself off. Was really scared that everyone in the lift managed to come out in less than 3 seconds.

Inside the apartment, there is ample amount of space, but all my friends slept in the living room, one of them told me that he woke up at 4 A.M and heard the sound of someone using the toilet, when everybody else is asleep.

But then, for the price it offers, it is quite good IF you go with more than 10 person in 1 apartment, it will not be that scary.

Room Tip: This apartment is known to be haunted, Do a Google search first and read all of the stories to know...

This is one of the worst places I have ever lived in. The apartment is definitely huge and can accommodate alot of ppl but the place is creepy, dirty and smelly. The building is so eerie, the lifts are so old and d corridors smelt like urine. My family and i decided to stay there for a night since all the other hotels were fully booked. Initially I thought it wouldn't be too bad .. But i was so wrong. We checked in, paid rm 480 for a 3 bedroom apartment , paying that much you would expect some level of cleanliness.. But no.. The beds were so uncomfortable..the sheets had blood stain, the toilet sink was leaking and there were weird noises at night. My entire family of 6 did not sleep all night because we could here door slammings, we could here ppl talking and even the cars going up to the theme park at 3 am. It's was too noisy and creepy.I personally couldn't sleep as I could hear fireworks at 3-5 am and also heard someone moving the furniture. It is a very disturbing place. Do not stay there. Even the toilets are disgusting. It looks they have never cleaned d place in ages.

I should have read the reviews at Tripadvisor before going and booking this apartment through Agoda. This apartment complex houses all the staff workers of Genting resort who are mostly bachelors. Though the apartment is quite huge but not maintained and looking run down. the lift lobby was stinking with garbage lying around.
