Me and my wife visited Genting and Kuala Lampur for our honeymoon recently. The Awana Genting Highlands Resort was our abode there and our travel operator -Malaysiawonder.com ensured an awesome stay via a great honeymoon package coupled with good prices. The First World Hotel provides the only other choice of hotel here but having liked the Awana Genting from its pics & d activity nd luxury it offers, we decided to book this one.
The hill resort was reachable by car from Kuala Lumpur in around 90 mins and it was also accessible by the cable car (renowned as the world’s fastest) called Gentin Skyway and South East Asia's longest gondola lift. The travel agent arranged for our journey through this cable car and it was one of the most romantic journeys during our trip.
The room was decently large – at least 45 sq mt in area and had a great view of the thronging greenery bordering the area. All modern amenities like LED TV, electric kettle, electronic safe etc. were readily available. The dish TV had multiple channels of various languages. The service of the butlers was excellent and they even gave us local sightseeing suggestions including trying out the Awana Jungle Trekking Camp, which operates from the resort’s travel desk.
The Awana trekking was both adventurous and romantic at the same time. We travelled hand in hand through open fields of flourishing vegetation at one of Malaysia’s oldest rainwater forests. The guide was pleasant and guided us through the streams and waterfalls as we passed a wide array of colourful water birds, interesting insects and honeyed flowers. For the risk takers there is the casino operated by the Genting Malaysia Berhad (a subsidiary of the Genting Group) which is another superb getaway place. Thus overall the Awana is a recommended resort.
