As most of you all know, I am one of the top 5 in recent All Malaysian Bloggers' contest. Well, I have got mine prizes already. I went to Sunway Pyramid to pick it up. Thank you The Star! Thank you every one!

Since I'm going to stay there for 3 days 2 nights there, I might as well write about the hotel. Awana Genting Highlands is near to Kuala Lumpur. It is just an hour from KL. It is located on the way to Genting Theme park which is situated on the top to the peak. I have been there many times. I love the weather, much cooler than KL. Sometimes there are a lot of fog and difficult to see the road too.. It has a abundant greenery and lush panoramas. It is certainly a prefect short get away for most KLian especially during short weekend break.

These are some of the facilities and services available in the hotel:

Tennis, Football filed, Squash, Badminton, Heated pool, Snooker & pool, table tennis, driving range volley ball court, karaoke, archery, horse riding, 18-hole golf course etc..

WOW! There are a lot of things to do.. definitely want to test the horse riding, never been on a horse before. I heard it is a very good exercise, even our previous PM, Dr Mahathir choose horse riding as his favorite past time...

    Any idea how far it is from the Genting theme park and genting resort? How much time does it take by cable car? I did not get a room in genting, so I had to book a room in this hotel. I hope it is feasible to travel to genting staying in this hotel.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Sameer!
    I need to know the full name of the hotel.. Genting hotel, Highlands hotel, Resort hotel, Theme park hotel and First World hotel are all around the theme park. Only walking distance.. 5 - 10 min walk.
    If Awana Genting, you need to take cable car. About 15min ride.. advisable for you to book the top 5 that I mentioned above..

    Hi Tuan.
    Thanks for your prompt response. I have booked a room in Awana Genting resort, because all the 5 hotels you mentioned were fully booked.
    So, is it convenient to travel from Awana Genting resort to the casino, shopping places etc? Also, is it true that the cable car runs only on weekends?

    Hi Sameer!
    Cable car open daily from 7.30am to 11pm. You can also use taxi to go up to the theme park. However, it not as convinience as you stay on the top..
