Arranged with June to meet at 8:00 am to go down to breakfast, which was included in our room price, but it was 9:00 am by the time we got there. The others were sleeping in.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAwana Hotel Genting Highlands
Awana Tower Hotel at the Genting Golf Resort was a lovely, relaxing, luxury stay. The rooms were extra large with 2 queen size beds with service every day. The views were wonderful over-looking the golf course and valley and mountains beyond. A buffet breakfast was included in the price of $60 a room per night. A free bus provided shuttle service to different places around the Highlands. Plenty of restaurants for good food and a large heated pool and spa to relax in after a long active day.
