“Not up to 5 stars standard”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Recently have a stayed in Avani sepang goldcoast Resort on 9/5/14 , the hotel was secluded as it mention in the billboard , good for privacy , no doubt staff are very friendly and helpful . However the hotel facilities are old and cleanliness not up to the standard, air conditioning not functioning well and the room is warm plus our country tropical weather already humid and stuffy.The room rate is overpriced and with that kind of rate , definitely we can get better place for vacation and stay. The hotel infinity pool was very small and congested . The hotel car park is far from the lobby although shuttle service is provided by it is very inconvenience if raining or u have too many luggage. I have a disappointed night and all my expection and impression prior to visit this hotel are gone . Definitely not a good hotel to stay if u plan for a wonderful and relaxing family day or honeymoon or try to escape from city life . I hope all the lovely traveler can reconsider your travelling option in view of environment , cleanliness , convenience and overpriced of this hotel . Hope my sincere review can help the fellow traveler.

Just came back from a 7 day deal to Avani resort. Had a few mixed feelings about the place but they were all put to rest once we got there. The resort is classed as 5 star which it is for Malaysians but it would be 3.5-4 star Australians style. Our deal was $999 each for the week with breakfast, most meals, spa and pick up from the air port. Excellent value but I wouldn't pay the normal













Just came back from a deal for 7 nights for up to 4 people for $999 each which included airport pickup, breakfast daily,most dinners and 8 spa treatments. Great value for this but I wouldn't pay th $6000 plus that it was normally worth.It is classed as a 5 star resort but compared to Australian standards it's about 3.5 - 4 star but still very nice. The biggest downside is that it is so far out of KL, at least 1/12 hours on a good run in the morning and at least 2 hours plus at 5 pm.

Room Tip: Get a room as far away from the main breakfast area

stayed for a night in premier treveller under IVC member. The room and view was outstanding. We had our dinner and lunch in Hai Sang Lou and the food was delicious. Especially the dim sum. Special shout out to the staff wong,jophy sook chn for their good service and hospitality. Had a breakfast in bila bila, the food was okay but a little too crowded and they need to provide more baby chair.

Loved the view of the sunset from our balcony. Management and all staff were very friendly and helpful. Kid friendly and our personal Butler Azwad was extremely professional he always happy to assist us. His happy personality and his professionalism made our special holiday very relaxing and most enjoyable. We look forward to returning in the near future, loved the fact that it was kid friendly and also romantic.
