“The best in the Genting Highlands”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

The best possible hotel & golf Resort in Genting Highland. Better than the ones up in the Highland. Awana golf resort has a 9 hole golf course and is situated just 5 minutes drive from the cable car starting point. The hotel has every 15 minutes drop & pick up to the starting point of the cable car. The hotel is Huge and golf cars to take you around. Love;y atmosphere and most of the rooms are situated at higher floors giving a lovely misty view around Genting and near by villages. Lovely small sit out area with mist all around. The rooms are really big with all amenities in the room including tea coffee machines and iron board. The breakfast is difficult t understand when compared to typical Indian breakfast, but one does get various eggs and some south Indian Malaysian style dishes. The hotel is really crowded as its a famous tourist destination. If you are there for days like more than 5 days who will definitely enjoy the hotel's golf course. Very neat & tidy and well maintained hotel. Worth the money spend for the stay.

Overall: One must stay in this hotel only if visiting Genting to experience luxury with the lovely surrounding. Worth IT.

Stayed in superior deluxe rooms. It is a 2 queen-size bedding configuration. Awesome. LCD TV however with inhouse movie programme only. Both ceiling fans & air cond provided. Room with balcony. Just nice. Bathtub for your soaking shower. Toilettries is a complete one,.... great.
The room and the bathroom is very clean. I love it. However.....ceiling fans only works at certain speed selection. TV picture is a bit fuzzy. Didn't bother to call housekeeping for fixing as we were there for one night only and so many activities waiting in our itinerary. We booked 2 rooms and asked for the ones with interconnecting door but front reception said they don't have any. A bit strange as most hotel would have this kind of rooms to cater for big groups of family. Check in time is strictly at 3pm. We turned up at 2:15pm at the front reception but was told to come back at 3pm. Buffet breakfast is just ok. We stayed at 25th floor,....awesome. The view from our balcony is breathtaking. Golf course and green tropical forest & hills. Average temp around the hotel site is quite cool breeze as it is located on the Genting Highland area. From the banners fixed around the hotel there seems to be many outdoor activities available around the hotel area. However we didn't have any chance to try. Swimming pool and indooor/outdoor sports are available. Hourly bus service is provided for free for hotel guess to take few mins short trip further up directly to Genting Highland or to Genting skyway cable car. The Bus schedule provides return trip and it is 24h available.
Overall it is a nice resort hotel surrounded by refreshing green tropical forest in Genting Highland area and will come back for another holiday.

Room Tip: The hotel has both hotel rooms and apartment/condo rooms type. I would say choose hotel rooms (super...

we stayed for 3 nights. The room was big with 2 queen beds. but the bed sheets had stains and the bathroom drainage in the sink was bad that it gets full while you are still washing your hands.

On our frist night we found a small lizard in the room which ruined our stay!

However, the view was breathtaking and it was nice to have a mini balcony.

Breakfast had a lot of variety, some of which were very normal and some were good (their potato wedges were gr8)

transportation was easy as there is a shuttle every while up to the skyway or the theme parks.

we just wished the hotel was being taken care of "clean" wise to make the stay with the view an unforgettable one.

One of the good hotels in Genting... I stayed there with my family for five nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.. the apartment we got was very spacious with spa attached to the master bedroom and a beautiful balcony.. The hotel is surrounded with greenery... And it's also very near to KL as well... Recommended !

Awana Genting Highlands - One of the best options you can take when it comes to staying in Genting. As mentioned in previous reviews, This place has HUGE rooms with pretty balconies (and if you are as lucky as me.. You can get a room on the ground floor with a small (very small) backyard). This place is very quiet and Big. Their Gold course if very well kept and is a beautiful area for Early morning walks. The Pool is small but has a beautiful green surrounding. The Internet stations have a good connectivity. Staff is very helpful and warm.
If i Ever go back to Genting it will be for this resort (and Strawberries) Overall an Awesome stay .

Good Hotel and Good Golf Course if you play, I didn't got the time to play as was with family. I have stayed in Genting First world Hotel. I will rate this much better then that. Good restaurant Rajawali for Breakfast and good service by Genting or the Hotel to and fro to Genting Theme Park.

This place was one of the best we had been, the room which we were staying was facing the golf course. It was a perfect place for our romantic getaway. My wife loved this room so much that she was planning to design our first house in a similar fashion.

The worm water swimming pool was a nice experience too..

the cafe where a chinese lady was performing Bollywood movie songs was a good place to hand out in the night.

had a nice time clicking photos of fish and tortoises at the small tropical forest makeup pool there.

Did not like the service much specially the male receptionist.

they said they willl send us the recipt by mail and i am still waiting for the same for the last 4 months.

but a ok place to stay
