“Stay here only if you are golfing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Hotel is nice but stay there only if interested in golf.
Out of the two days i stayed one full day the hotel staff were trying out fire alarms and that was very irritating. The reception staff were quite unhelpful in addressing this issue.
Room was very spacious, the bathroom was well fitted and big.
The breakfast was very ordinary but the view from the dining hall is pretty good.
Overall would suggest travellers to stay at the hill top in one of the four hotels there. To be fair the hotel provides free shuttle to the cable car station and to the Genting gaming and amusement center but still...why stay so far away?

We stayed at Awana for two nights, I would definitely recommend this hotel for its excellent location. Specially its good for people who admire nature, the best part of the hotel is golf club, Really nice buffet breakfast, the resort itself has loads to offer which includes daily team building activities and free shuttle service to Genting highlands amusement park.

My husband and I visited Malaysia on our honeymoon. We stayed at Awana Genting for two nights (jan 2011) and it was a wonderful experience. The booking procedure was easy as we had done it online. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The property is beautiful and soothing.... especially for nature lovers. Hotel has shuttle services to the Genting park and the provide complimentry coupons to the cable car too. It was an all in one experince as the htel is equiped with all the amenities such as gym, spa, golf course, swimming pool (with separate childrens section), resturants, boutique, room service, wifi, conference room, rooms, apartments, suites etc, etc................. we just loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Golf course have an amazing view.

We stayed 5 nights at this hotel, the room was a good size but the bathroom could have been bigger but was still OK.The view from the balcony was fantastic! There are 4 restaurants at the hotel, The Rajawali, The Flavors Cafe, The Golf Terrace and a Korean/Japanese restaurant. The Golf terrace had a very limited menu and the Korean/Japanese and the Flavors Cafe served too big portions and their menus were OK but nothing special. The Rajawali was our favorite because it had delicious food and you could sit on what I thought were Thai style chairs which were a bit like tiny colorful mattresses with a backrest with low Thai style tables if you wanted to. The grounds were good for bird-spotting and nice to walk in but the fitness course and the children's course was a bit run down. However, there were many activities to do including archery, squash, ping-pong and indoor climbing. There were also nature tours and a stargazing and firefly watching tour where there would escort you there by golf cart. The golf course was very beautiful. At check-in they gave you tickets to go up to the top of Genting in a cable car and enjoy the view. It was a great stay and I would definitely go back

My experience of staying at Awana Genting Highlands was truly memorable.My brother and I stayed there for Chinese New Year celebrations and rides and fine dining at Resorts World Malaysia. Though it is far from the center of Genting Resorts World, we liked it that it was secluded and was an important bird area and a golfer's paradise. I love the room we stayed in. I had my best night's sleep at Awana. I was able to relax and reflect and meditate because of the cool surroundings. I just suggest that the staff would help us with our luggage when going to the room. Also, the cable car going to resorts world was not working at the time so we had to take the bus and we waited for a long time. Apart from that, my whole hotel experience was very satisfying. I would recommend this place to my friends who will visit Malaysia.

Room Tip: book early so you get promo rates.food is good.
