Fantastic beaches, refreshing highlands and spa retreats let you truly get away from it all..and they are all right here in Awana! For a cool break, Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort lets you escape from city heat. For island adventure, Awana Porto Malai Langkawi offers island shopping, canoeing and eagle feeding. As for me, i choose to relax at the beach. So I went to Awana Kijal as part of my honeymoon. Since the piggy bank didn’t allow for the blue skies of the Caribbean or the Bahamas, we decided to settle our honeymoon for something a little closer to home: Terengganu. After all, what could be better than a paradise island where the people are warm, the beaches clean. With a wide selection of resorts and hotels to choose from, finding a cosy retreat on the island is not a problem. And Awana Kijal, a luxurious five-star resort destination and the perfect haven to soothe our body and mind, is a great choice.
We decided to check into Awana Kijal for 1 nights. When we arrived, first impression about the lobby was impressive. It was big, comfy and also the staff were friendly. We booked Deluxe room beforehand, because it was a school holiday season, the room absolutely will be packed with visitors, either foreigners or locals. However, when we got to the check in counter, we were little shocked when the staff told us that our reservation had been canceled! That was because darling dear forgot to put his credit card (which he did not have any :P) number during the booking. The friendly and helpful staff said to us not to worry, and fortunately there was an available deluxe room for us, phew!
The room is just as luxurious. This room faces the majestic South China Sea. A place with tranquility that you do not find in the city, huh? A lovely spacious room, excellent beds, good pillows and the bathroom was equipped with a bath, separate shower and toilet, everything spotless clean. Different little touches like sitting in the bath, open sliding doors (a cute window actually) and pssssttt….i can now laze in the tub with darling dear and watch TV really add to the charm! hihihi….
The evening we had a walk to remember. Holding hand and walking along the beach. A great beach for relaxing. The beach is nice. Soft powdery sands.
This resort has Taman Sari Royal heritage Spa which provides Javanese theme experience. Because it’s over budget, so what can i do is just snap a picture in front of the spa and pretending i have a spa! muahaaa.. Awana Kijal also has a giant olympic size pool! and also giant chess.! U will get exciting playing with this chess.
The next morning we had our breakfast at The Kampung Meraga Beris restaurant. The restaurants are simple but the food is excellent. Breakfast is absolutely fantastic with Terengganu dishes like Nasi Dagang, Kari Ikan Tongkol, Serunding, Lemang and so on. Before leaving, we walked around after breakfast and managed to get a few landscape shots.
If i have chance, i want to go to Awana Porto Malai, Langkawi for second honeymoon with darling dear.
