Address: Genting Highland Resort, Genting Highlands, Malaysia.
How to get here: Getting here is quite easy with shuttle service. With Awana Skyway Resort World Genting’s cable car system, cable cars carry the passengers every hour ascending from Awana Station to SkyAvenue station. The glass floor Gondola ride gives a great view across the 620 meters of cable. You can start enjoying the sights even on the journey. There is hassle-free transport between shuttle stations and resort. It is also conveniently accessed by a 45-minute ride from Kuala Lumpur.
The resort hotel is a bright and stylish hotel that brings freshness to its modern decor. Set amidst the majestic landscape, this hotel also provides a breathtaking view and all the cool comforts. It is a high altitude resort set amidst the Genting Highlands of Malaysia. The weather is always refreshing in this part. As you walk in, you get the view of the decent lobby and the bellman is there to help you. When we entered our room, we were delighted to see that our room gave us a lavish view of the amusement park. The elevator signs took a little getting used to but after a while, we understood the arrows and signs.
Room: The room has a modern interior and it was very clean and cozy. We had the super deluxe double bed for our luxury and the staff was cooperative and polite. The room was up to standards but the only problem was that there was no WiFi connectivity. That was only available in the lobby. There are a bunch of options available for the type of room you want and we went with the deluxe option. It suited our needs and was quite comfy. With carpet flooring, in-room safe and sitting are available, it was all one could ask of the hotel.
Amenities and Services: Highlight of the Resort is the huge Genting theme park attached to it which is surrounded by a great view. We stayed in the deluxe room and it had all the modern luxury facilities. Getting back to the room after visiting the theme park was very relaxing. The room was spacious as well as comfortable. There was one small herbal shop around the corner and we delighted in their soups. Most of the facilities are within walking distance and the staff is ever so helpful. A basic set of toiletries were provided such as hairdryer, bathrobes, along with tea/coffee maker, LCD Tv, and express laundry service. The food, however, wasn’t fantastic and we preferred to eat outside. There is a Bar & Lounge if you feel in the mood for a few drinks and a Casino for trying your hand at gambling.
Some of the best places to eat that we found were Cafes Richard. As soon as we arrived at SkyAvenue, it was the first place we went for some coffee. Here, the customers can experience genuine French art with original coffees and French food. Do try their espresso.
Later, we ended up at Motorino. That is the best Pizza place baked in wooden ovens. This is the best authentic Italian pizza restaurant chain.
We also had our meals at Food factory in Genting Highlands. There was a wide variety of food choices here and even a chocolate fountain. We had our meal buffet style. There were many options for vegetarian food and we were surprised to find Rotis available.
Highlights: The theme park, though crowded remained the highlight of our stay here. One can easily spend the whole day there, enjoying different rides and activities. Many retail shops and restaurants are also readily available without having to go too far for it.
Verdict: We had a great time during our stay at this resort and would recommend it to every fellow traveler visiting Genting Highlands in Malaysia. Just opt out of the breakfast option and instead go out and eat the local cuisines. Do try out the casino and the theme park. It is all part of the overall experience which you will not want to miss.
