Tucked away in a little (though not deserted) corner, near main town KUAH, is the Sheraton Perdana, one of the finest resorts in Langkawi.
We arrived there and received a warm Selamat Datang!(just as in all of Malaysia:) ...there was however a mix up in our hotel reservations, the 2 sea view rooms had been instead changed for 1 sea view and 1 garden view room, this was however a mistake on the part of the travel agent, and the hotel tried its best to rectify the problem!:)
The Perdana service is great, the beachfront nice enough (with watersport facilities at reasonable rates being available), the food just great! the ambience in the resort-very friendly and the spa experience- out of this world!!!
The Spa for one! Offering a million treatments which are the most relaxing ever! The 3 pools incl the Ocean pool, are delightful to look at and to soak in! They also have daily Perdana activities so you can join in if you want to! :)
Exceptionally gorgeous is the Perdana jetty-makes for a perfect postcard!:)
all the chalet were located within the natural environment, without harming natural beauty. Our chalet was also in the middle of a deep bushes and that chalet had all the convenience of a modern accommodation. There was a balcony as well to sit down and enjoy the evening.
All the chalets are from a distance of main reception area, so you have two options either walk on a zigzag track to your chalet or take a shuttle service. we were staying in a chalet which was located on uphill so we always use to walk down to reception area and our way back shuttle service was the best option
It was my first time going to any holiday resort in Malaysia and I really loved it. We paid around £50 per night for our chalet. Resort is spread on a beautiful natural landscape. The good thing about these chalets is nothing has been spoiled and you can enjoy a peace stay in wild bushes.
Enter one of these cheerful cabanas and you'll experience its quiet elegance and modern amenities. With air conditioning, coffee and tea making facilities, mini bar, colour tv and all the creature comforts your ever likely to need. Soak up the intimate and informal ambience. This is a peaceful retreat and a just reward for those who have worked hard to live the good life
Include in a wide selection of local and international cuisines at the Barau Restaurant and Terrace. Indoors or outdoors, luxuriate in the casual atmosphere, and enjoy a refreshing dining experience. Your seat at the restaurant gives you a first class ocean view and the swimming pool.
Take to the waters and make a splash. Refresh the spirit and soak in the sun. The sparkling bay is a natural draw for sea sport lovers. Wind surfing, water skiing, wave skiing, water scootering, yachting or catamaran sailing. You can also fish for dinner or go island hopping. Snorkeling at nearby islands available. Fun in the sun takes on a new meaning at Barau Bay Resort.
I'm getting soft as I get older but I do like a basic degree of comfort when I'm travelling. I also have an aversion to mosquitoes which makes a lot of the cheap and cheerful places almost unbearable for me. The Best Star Resort will not be everyone's ideal choice but for me it was perfect. Having arrived on Langkawi feeling very sick (the start of a chest infection) and stressed out I needed some clean, roomy, comfortable and free of biting insects.
It is a new place and has open been open just a few months, I believe. The rooms are large and spotlessly clean. Sitting on the bed or walking barefoot on the carpet doesn't make you cringe, like some other places I've stayed in.
Superior rooms go for RM105, Junior Suites with a beach view RM150, and Suites with a beach view RM250. I arrived at the start of Ramadan and Cenang was really quiet so they let me have a room for RM95. I stayed in one of the lowest priced rooms and it was a good size so the Suites must be huge.
There is a RM10 surcharge on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month and during school holidays. The peak season surcharge (festive holidays) is RM20. As always, prices are subject to the laws of supply and demand. If it's busy be thankful for getting a room. If it's quiet you should be able to haggle for a bargain.
Facilities include A/C, hot water showers with a large dispenser of liquid soap, big fluffy towels, TV and a desk in the rooms. It is Muslim run and the staff are extremely friendly. I also had confidence that things wouldn't go missing from my room or that my credit card wouldn't be 'borrowed', as has happened in Thailand in the past. Breakfast is included in the room charge, nothing extravagant but quite sufficient - eggs, toast, jam, tea or coffee.
There are many many beautiful hotel resorts in Langkawi like this one I was staying, which has got an amazing Mediterranean feel about it. Comfortable rooms with very tranquil surroundings.
Panoramic views of the sea, both during sunrise and sunset time. Go biking, boating and fishing anytime of the day. Not much night life here though, not common for the entire Langkawi island for that matter. A swimming pool is yet to be completed soon.
