Being an avid cyclist and trekker, I love visiting the places where you have a scope for both and when a holiday plan to the hill station of Resorts World Genting came along, I couldn’t resist the temptation. My friends booked the stay for 3 days at the Awana Genting Highlands, a popular resort there. Antilog Vacations website gave us a very good Malaysia deal at bulk rate( including KL) & was a reasonable tour package.Located between the Selangor and Pahang states of Malaysia at an altitude of close to 2000 mt, the place as well as the hotel (which came under the purview of Awana chain of resorts & hotels) is operated Genting Malaysia Berhad (formerly known as Resorts World Bhd).
Our room was in the tall tower building bordering the reception area and was six or seven levels in height and had awesome panoramic views. Our next door neighbours who incidentally were leaving when we arrived were experienced travellers and had stayed in a number of resorts and they too recommended the place highly as we entered our room.
It was a grand room with an exotic looking carpet which covered the 500 sq ft area in almost its entirety. The resort had both rooms and condo/apartment types. Our superior deluxe hotel room located on the top floor had a balcony with breathtaking view of the green tropical forest and with cool breeze blowing; the evenings were well spent even staying indoors.
The travel operator guy showed us around the hotel and gave us trips to some nearby places like the serene 9-hole Awana Golf Resort. Moreover as the Genting Highlands serve as the end point of the concluding stage in the famous Tour de Langkawi cycling race, I personally requested the manager to arrange for a trip to the same and I was delighted when he complied with my request.
Thus friendly people and an eager tour operator gave us the perfect stay at Awana.
