Genting Back to Nature Eco Retreat 2015: Awana Longhouse

I never once imagined that I would step my foot in a longhouse, and visiting a longhouse remains just something on my bucket list but alas, I did, along with my family and friends during Genting Back to Nature Eco Retreat 2015. Who would have guessed that there is a longhouse in Genting Highlands? I was certainly not aware of the existence until my family and I happened to be invited to join the Genting Back to Nature Eco Retreat 2015 program.

While I can’t exactly strike out staying in a real aborigines’ longhouse but I still can say that now I fairly have an idea how a longhouse really looks like.

Awana Genting Longhouse is pretty much basic and it is designed for communal living where there is a huge living room and spacious rooms for guests.

There is nothing luxurious about Awana Longhouse. There is no entertainment units or even fans or air conditioner, so you may scratch luxury leisure off if you you happen to be here.

Toilets and bathrooms are located outside at about 100 meters away.

Nightfall at Awana Longhouse. Beautiful, don’t you think? If you are the kind who expects room service during your getaways, then the longhouse is not the place for you but if you are looking to get back to nature and is the adventurous kind, this might be just the thing for you.
