Beach Garden Resort
Beachfront haven - Pantai Cenang
Although this "resort" is better described as motel accommodation the rooms were clean and airconditioned and the staff are very helpful and friendly. There is a small pool in the courtyard in the centre of the rooms which together form a "U" shape facing the beach. The other good thing about this hotel is the food which is sensational and only a touch more expensive than the street restaurants. Breakfast was included in the room rate and it was plentiful and delicious.
Unique Quality: Outstanding restaurant in a fabulous "on the beach" setting from where you can watch the sunset.
Directions: On the main road in Pantai Cenang and with direct beach frontage and access.
Langkawi's "best " 2star Hotel :-)
"Only" a 2 1/2 star hotel.
As we normally use to stay in 3/4star hotels, we were a little concerned before, but were through to bits with this very friendly and cosy hotel. Made us feel as if we were staying in "our own house, sharing with some more guests".
The small garden makes you feel like being in a - safe - jungle. Although swimming pools are somewhat important to me and this swimming-pool could be somewhat larger indeed, I was very happy with it and we had a lovely time spending the end of our evenings there, sipping our "late night drink".
The restaurant is great and serves delicious international food and ... German tap beer. Although very prominent on Langkawi, we never had the feeling of being disturbed by its "guests from outside" or by too much noise.
The rooms are relatively big and very clean, with a marble floor and with a nice but no luxury furnishing.
Well, the bathroom is nothing special, though, and the shower without a shower tub is the only thing, I was not too happy about! (I hate to have to stand on a flooded floor after showering! ) This would definitely be a great "plus", if it could be changed! Nevertheless - definitely NOT a reason, not to stay in this hotel!
Sun beds were always available and the possibility to sit right on the sand in the outdoor restaurant while eating is - for us - the best! The food on offer is international, excellent and of really good quality. The breakfast included within the room rate is a la carte and one has a great choice. In fact, we did not miss a breakfast BUFFET at all!
The hotel is located directly on the long and lovely beach and we were positively surprised that there were hardly any hawkers in that area. (What a difference to most Thailand beaches!) Other small restaurants situated directly on the beach and a lovely big 4star hotel , the Pelangi Beach (where they have live music and you can even go or a dance) are very nearby and can be reached only within a few minutes, walking along the beach.
Unique Quality: Cosy athmosphere, nice rooms, good service, good food and drinks (especially beers), quiet and leger! Directly at the beach. Very well located. Shops and more restaurants within few walking minutes but still not "too touristy" at all!
We paid 42,- E/room via a German Travel Organizer. If we had booked directly with them, it would have been slightly more expensive - but not much!
A little German resort at Langkawi
Decent accomodations for a reasonable price.
Hotel is decorated with lots of balinese figures/masks so ambience feels more Indonesian than Malaysian over here.
Also, there are quaint waxed paper umbrellas all over the place so no need to worry if it rains at all.
Unique Quality: The resort is right at the beach so you get great views when you dine at the resort's restaurant.
Also,polite and excellent service from hotel staff.
Waiters took the trouble to lay out cutlery
properly even though we dined al fresco.
Tables/ Chairs are on the sandy beach so you'll be able to dig your toes into the sand even as you eat.

Nice resort and beergarden
Entering the Beach Garden Resort past the stone guards gives you immediately the feeling to be cut off completely from the outside world. A short jungle path heading west leads through a lush green jungle like garden, past a small pond down to the beach. At the end of the path when you step out of the shadow of the canopy the bright sunshine reflects on a spot of white, fine sand.
It is the open air part of the Beach Garden Resort restaurant, the beer garden. Protected by a sun sail this is an ideal place to enjoy a cool beer from the keg and enjoy the sunset at the same time.
Directions: Pantai Cenang
