Sheraton Perdana: Sheraton Perdana

There are a selection of restaurants and bars at the hotel. The Grove where there is a nightly themed buffet as well as an amazing breakfast, the Bayu lounge for light snacks, tapas and cocktails, the poolside bar and the fun pub "Someplace else". Our favourite restaurant at the hotel was the Sambar Ria where you could sit at the edge of the beach and watch the sunset whilst enjoying the terrific food. The duck with biriyani rice was my favourite whilst Gary was addicted to the lamb shank rendang with risotto rice. He even had 2 one night!

Although the beach in front of the hotel is not one of the best I have seen, the views from the terraces are quite spectacular lloking over the islands in the bay. All in all we had a really enjoyable stay at the Sheraton Perdana and would stay again when we return to Langkawi.

Sheraton Perdana Resort: Sheraton Perdana

The Sheraton Perdana is just outside Kuah town and within walking distance from jetty point, Eagle square and Langkawi Fair-the islands biggest shopping mall.
The hotel is lovely with a beautiful landscaped gardens and a great choice of restaurants and facilities. The rooms are everything you would expect in a five star hotel.
This picture doesn't really do the hotel justice but if you double click to expand it-you will get more of an idea.

Berjaya Holiday Resort: Good

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.

Resort: Chalet

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.

Resort: Shuttle service

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

Best Star Resort: Best Star Resort - view from the road

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.

Pelangi Beach Resort

Pelangi Beach Resort, where the warmth of the sun and radiance of lush tropical gardens mingle with romantic nights.

Located on the west coast on the island of Langkawi, the resort spreads over 30 acres of palm fringes beachfront facing Pulau Rebak Kecil.

The relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the resort is synonymous with Langkawi's own laid back style, making this an ideal location for family holidays, or for those occasion when business needs to be tempered by pleasure.

Location
Only 8km from the Langkawi International Airport, the resort is designed like a Malaysian village or "Kampung", and equipped with all the modern amenities to offer maximum comfort and luxury.

The Sheraton Perdana Resort: Langkawi Luxury

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!:)

Great Pool: Holiday Villa Langkawi

Although this hotel is out from the centre of town it was ideally located for a relaxing holiday. There was a taxi stand at the front gate & the hotel supplied you with the fixed prices charged for trips which was really helpful. Along the street there was a number of restaurants that opened on different days of the week as it was the quiet season. There was a little food store & you could also buy clothes, shoes & icecreams just outside. The hotel had its own store & the prices were reasonable as Langkawi is a duty free island.

The hotel had a huge pool which was good as it was really too rough to swim at the beach. It also had a jacuzzi & a swim up bar. There were a number of restaurants but the food out in the streets was unbelieveably cheap & yummy. They didn't hassle anyone who brought their own drinks down to the pool.

Langkawi City Bayview: Located near jetty and town

Really liked the location as it is 5 minutes from the ferry jetty to Kedah and Penang and the main town itself Kuah.

However the better beaches are away, 15 to 20 minutes drive. The hotel does have an outdoor swimming pool. Be careful of security as some of my friends had their rooms broken in some time ago.

The Aesiana Hotel

This hotel was included in a deal from a tour operator that included transfers and the ferry price so we didn't choose it ourselves. It was fine though and had a great swimming pool and is less than a 5 minute walk to the beach of Pantai Tengah.

Apparently it has the longest swimming pool in Malaysia. The downside was that the room smelt a bit damp and musty.

Gecko Guesthouse: gecko guesthouse

Gecko is a join run venture by a western woman called Rebecca who set up this hostel/guesthouse in order to bring in the backpackers. Its set just off the beach, altho its only a 2 minute walk and you're there and it has a wicked bar which at night can get really busy and has a relaxed atmosphere as well. Theres a choice of both bungalows with bathroom and theres rooms with shared rooms. We found the cheapest rooms at Langkawi here, and also the best ones!!

Gecko has a couple of bar men who work there who will entertain you all day with their stories and antics. Miss them!!

Ask for Rebecca!

Bon Ton Coconut Village: Langkawi's best kept secret

Many of Bon Ton’s guests are people seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives. Why do people keep coming back? Because Bon Ton allows guests to escape to the simplicity of kampung (village) life. Resort owner, Narelle McMurtrie, treats guests like part of the family, in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. And yet a sense of style pervades the whole experience. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience...

The five restored century-old Malay houses are decorated with antique furniture and textiles. They are surrounded by coconut palms and look out on to a deep-blue oblong pool with a Jacuzzi at one end. You can sip a mango margarita at the bar or take a class at the onsite Langkawi Cookery School.

The Bon Ton also houses one of the best restaurants to be found on the island. The barbecue rock lobster was wonderful, as was the baked snapper served on mango rice.
