Our stay here was pleasant.The view from our room was spectacular. We enjoyed being in the midst of nature.Room size and cleanliness were ok. There was regular bus service to the top and back so we faced no problems. Even going to the strawberry farm was very easy. They also helped to arrange a car back to the airport for us.We had wanted to take a walk around the golf course but it got cancelled due to the rain. However the swimming pool was very nice and we spent a long time in the jaccuzzi..the only disappointment was the food- the breakfast was not upto expectations and we had lunch there one day which was also dismal.
But i would still say Awana is worth visiting!

The Ambience was too good, only disadvantage was you have to take shuttle and travel for 20 minutes to Casino and theme park. Be prepared for that. They had vegetarian for buffet that was good... Indian vegetarian...

Room Tip: Ask for high floor...

Spent only a couple of nights here but wished we'd stayed longer.

The fresh air is amazing. I wish I could bottle it.

Hotel is reasonably priced, staff friendly and the room clean and comfortable. We had a suite which was more than enough for 2 people.

What I loved most was the activities. Golf, walking tours, yoga, fitness classes, a pool, archery, table tennis and if you're really lucky: fireflies. We didn't spot any fireflies. Apparently it was too late for us to be able to walk towards where they sometimes are at that time of the day.

The gardens are very pretty. I've also stayed at other hotels in the Genting Highlands but this was far better.

There's plenty of free and secure parking for your car.

Comparing to other hotels at the peak of Genting Highland, we chosed the hotel as we expected the hotel has a park to walk around in the morning and yes they do have that, plus a huge golf course for you to admire.

The hotels located very near to the cable car station i.e. halfway to the Genting Highland resorts. but it is still cold at night and in the morning. The room we had was spacious!!! with 2 queen size bed. You can fit 4 adults in the room. My room facing the golf course and genting highland resorts.

I've been here perhaps 20 years ago but stayed in the apartment not the tower hotel. As said, 20 years ago, and this hotel probably remained the same since then. The toilet was looked very old. Plus, the sink in my room wasn't function very well, but since we stayed for 1 night, i didn't make any complain at all. This seriously need full refurbishment.

Another -ve point - the breakfast isn't that good. Not to the standard that I've expected. They have many local options but the taste was in the middle of nowhere. And staff, you don't really feel welcome at the hotel. Too many guests perhaps.

Room Tip: We stayed at room 24560 and it has good view.

If you are looking for the fast and furious lifestyle of Genting peak ( which offered visitors non-stop entertainment, theme parks, clubs, pubs, chic restaurents and casinos ), then this mid-hill resort is not for you.
But we loved this place for its quietness, peaceful, fresh mountain air and relaxation, which is just a hourly shuttle bus away(Free to hotel guests )to the peak of Genting, then you can enjoy extremes of both worlds from busy and hectic night lifes that never stopped to a peaceful, cooling breeze and nature greens (albeit the golf course ). But breakfast food were a big let down, it could be better.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the golf course, the higher the better, as the mountain breeze is plain fantastic...

The resort is located 1/2 way on the mountain to Genting highland resort. It is a quiet place compared to those highland resort hotels. There are sufficient car parks for the guest in Awan compared to Genting hotel is difficult to get a parking lot.
If you are traveling by car you can park in Awana and take a shutter bus or cable car to the hill top. The set back is the bus is available every hour it a bit too long to wait and not enough seats during peak season then you may have to wait for another hour. The shutter bus is free of charge for hotel guests.
We book through Agoda.com and room price is reasonable with breakfast provide for 2 persons (RM38.00 per person). The room is big enough with 2 queen size beds. Swimming pool is at the ground floor, heated jacuzzi pool, squash court etc. Remember to bring your swimming suit if you want to use the swimming pool. you may not be allowed into the pool if you don't have proper wear.
The surrounding place of visit are strawberry park, you can buy fruit and mushroom and a lot of eating shops near the park.
Currently the out door theme park is closed for renovation only the indoor theme park is open. You will be disappointed if you are going there for outdoor games.

Room Tip: Choose high floor.
