“A short nice stay in a quiet area...”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

Although this hotel needs a bit of updating, it is a good value for money if you can get a deal. A great location, away from the heat and traffic of Kuala Lumpur, and not quite in the hustle and bustle of Genting Highlands resort itself. We took the skyway to get to Genting resort (RM 6) and the free shuttle to get back to the resort. Very convenient. It is nice to be able to walk outside in "fresher" air and in a quiet surrounding. We really enjoyed it.

Awana Genting is about 10 minutes away from Genting Theme Park and Casino. Basically, it's a hotel out of nowhere, which is good if you're up for some relaxing time. Awana has a complimentary shuttle bus service to Genting Theme Park and Casino every half hour, 24 hours a day. It means, you can literally spend your time up there gambling or just relaxing and still manage to be back to your room no matter what time it is - for free.

The deluxe room is spacious, enough to fit 6 people in it, but the receptionist would not allow that. The toilet is clean with all the amenities you would expect from a decent hotel.

The food is mediocre and though the selection is large, you will be getting the same dishes daily. However, the service in this hotel is good, with the staffs being attentive to your needs.

If you enjoy staying in a quiet place, away from the hustle and bustle of tourists on Genting, this is the place.

Room Tip: Request for higher floors as the lower levels will be blocked by rooftops.

Beautiful and spacious hotel that comes with a golf course. Unfortunately they did not have valet service there but the room was rather spacious. Had a beautiful view of the golf course. Had their complementary buffet breakfast and got my own buffet dinner at the rajawali restaurant overlooking the golf course, variety of food were good and it is good that they kept the vegetarians in mind. Even indian food was available. Got a really good foot reflexology there, been to many but this personally was really good overlooking the gold course. They had a lovely pool with a jacuzzi near the pool. Phone line was pretty bad there, so i had to pay 25 ringgit a night for wifi in my room. The good part is that, for people who go to relax... you can choose to relax in a cooling environment away from the hustle and bustle of city life and when you get bored.... Just go up to the theme park and have some hardcore fun. How cool is that... killing two birds with one stone ;). Services were good and the room was clean, had its own balcony. Nice stay

This resort (if you can call it that) is in much need of repair. It looks like it could have been very nice at one time, but not anymore. When we went to check out the Theme park area, we were really disappointed and my boys did not even want to go into the park. We left after one night! Do not waste your time, much nicer places to go.

Good location to be aorund. Large B'fast buffet selection. Ideal place to relax after some tiring outdoor activities in the theme park.You could see the chinese temple from your room if you are facing that side. A good grocery shop close by.

Room Tip: Get a room in the highest floor possible for the best view.
