Awana Kijal Resort Terengganu
Best location but bad service
Negeri Terengganu Hotels: 16 reviews and 27 photos
Great location by the beach, clean sand and good cooling breeze.
However, surprisingly rude hotel staff with odd routine- checking out bed linens before guests check out.
Beds are too soft (presumably too old) - got a bad backache in the morning.
Breakfast- wide selection but mediocre quality, many items not replenished.
No free wifi- even wifi at lobby will be charged RM25.
Tips- go to KFC to have your meal, cheap- and complimentary wifi.
If you don't like fast food- go to Restoran Pertama Kijal, corner shop, reasonably priced (fixed price on menu) and relatively good Chinese food.

Longest Private Beach
General: Went on a family trip with my double brother-in-law's (he married my sis and I married his) family. We drove in a Toyota Innova and it took us about 4.5 hrs (thankfully to the newly opened East Cost Highway). Being RCI members we booked the apartment units which are located just beside the main hotel units. We booked 2 units and each had 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, kitchen and dining room.
Amenities: The apartments look rather run down on the outside and initally we regretted our choice of coming to the resort. However the inside of the apartments looked better. The only complain is there was a strong smell of fish like someone had been cleaning fish in the kitchen but did not do a good cleanup job. We had to buy some deodrants that we kept spraying through out our stay there. The kitchen had the basic utensils for some light cooking and enough of plates, cups for use.
Facilities: Swimming pool - The kids will enjoy the pool as it has a nice kids area with slides, hippo and crocodile float, fountain. Adults will enjoy the 2 large jacuzzi that is attached to the pool. Its is covered and easily seats 8 adults.
Hotel - We ate at a Italian restaurant at the hotel and had some wood oven cooked pizzas, pasta, etc. Good food and it was reasonably priced.
Outside - There is row of shops on the main road outside the hotel. There is a good chinese seafood restaurant, an indian restaurant and KFC (for your fast food junkies)
Unique Quality: The Beach: It is probably the longest beach I have seen any hotel have. All 7km of it which is directly facing the hotel with no other hotels in its vincinity. The beach had really nice white sand that was extremely clean. We went during low season so we had practically the whole place to ourselves. It was too long for us to explore it all during our holiday of 4 days.
