Langkawi Village Resort
Langkawi Village Resort is situated on a 10 acre verdant landscaped grove of coconut palms at Pantai Tengah, on the South West of Langkawi Island. With a golden beach-front of soft sand stretching over 400 meters and lapped by cool inviting waters, it offers a panoramic vista of the nearby islands and of the setting sun; a sea-front location which is unmatched on the entire Island.
Known only to the discerning few until now, it is a hideaway which offers a peaceful, informal and thoroughly relaxing atmosphere for the weary traveller. The resort is a mere 15 minutes drive from Langkawi International Airport, 25 minutes from Kuah Town and 5-10 minutes from local restaurants, convenience stores and handicraft centers.

20 - 20 Chalets: The biggest rip off
This place is completely run down, it is owned by people living in KL, who open it during peak season for a quick buck. They pick up all the travellers/tourists after all the other places are fully booked and charge RM100. The rooms are smelly for being closed for a long time, the first room we had was leaking when it rained and the bathroom needed a very good scrub. The sheets and blankets have seen better days.
Imagine moving from this to AB Motel and paying less per night :o)
Although the people running it are friendly, I would strongly not recommend it!

Asceana Hotel: Asceana Hotel
I didnt actually stay here but i knew some of the guys working there in the pool bar. Asceana Hotel has one of the nicest swimming pools in langkawi and is worth the stay just to use the pool.
The bar tenders, at the pool bar, will serve you a number of beautiful cocktails, and play beautiful music.

Home Stay Environment
I think i can help a little here,it's depands on where do you want to stay. Either near to the beach or to the town area. Langkawi Seaview Hotel is near to town and as for Langkasuka Beach Resort is near to the airport and beach area. Pricing wise, Langkasuka (around RM200++ per night) will be a little more expensive than Seaview (around RM150-RM160 per night). But there are many food variety for you to choose from along the beach area. You should try the sea food here. There is one chinese restaurant in Kuah town by the name of " Wonderland" they serve awsome food. You should try out.
If you would like an exclusive home stay environment, I would like to recommend you a place at Cenang Beach area and it's call " Pondok Keladi" it's low density and nice environment. Pricing cost around RM150 per night.
Here you can visit the Traveler Review about this place:
If you need any assistant for your trip to Langkawi e.g: car rental, accomodation, or other activities, you can contact Mr. Shan 018-4666546, he can provide you a very good and reasonable service.

paku Pakis Tropical Resort bungalow: Beach Villa
Its a small private bungalow directly facing the beach in a very quiet area of Langkawi. The Owners are very lovely couple who would help you with everything they could. Paku Pakis is well-fumished, with a master-bedroom, a double room, a single room, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen and a separate common bathroom. It accommodates five comfortably.
You will need to rent a bike or a car since it it not very close to the city center.
The exterior landscape is very well done with a nice water feature filled with Koi and a nice water fall.

Charlie's Motel: Charlie's Motel
Well... we had no idea when we book the hotel from the ferry harbour (jetty), just looked thru the pictures, we dicided to book for 2 nights. Anyway.... Its a bit pricy, but worth to pay with all the facilities inside such as fridge, hot/cold shower, air con, tv, drinking water and towels.
Room for 2 people cost 120RM per night, Bungalow cost 140RM per night. It was not easy to get the bungalow because most of them were fully booked!
Its just on the beach, especially all of the bungalows face into the sunset! make great view every evening!
Oh, one more thing, they dont have double bed for room (2 people), all rooms are twin sharing (2) or 2 double beds (4 people)

Nice island resort
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.

Sunset Beach Resort: Their Website Befools!Filthy -Disappointing
The rooms seem beautiful and everything looks totally different on their website.
We stayed in 3 different rooms the 4 nights of our stay here. What you see on the site are the 3 rooms which are supposed to be the very best and they give the impression that the rest are similar making the guest look forward to getting there. The majority of rooms however are very small like jails, filthy and disgusting and you can hardly walk around the bed. Rooms like cells.
Rooms: We were given a standard room upon arrival which was extremely small and dark and we asked if we could change it the next day. We were lucky that somebody checked out that day and we moved to a bigger room which was the room you see on their website. We stayed here just for one night and unfortunately we were asked to move to another one because as the reception informed us somebody else was moving in.
Beds were ok but bed linen was synthetic thus we struggled to keep them on at night and the result was a very little, poor and uncomfortable sleep.
The third day, we were back to a similar as the first room we had the first day of arrival but a different one this time. A jail-like room or cell which was also dark because outside the two very tiny windows it was something like a shed that kept the room with no light, creating a frowsty atmosphere.
Coffee/tea facilities and a bottle of water were available.
Bathroom: Don’t expect any toiletries –a shampoo or bath gel other than a tiny small soap. Towels: (see photos) torn and dirty with stains on.
Cleaning: Non-existent! They use nothing but water to clean the bathroom with no detergent of any kind. I came to the room and watched the ladies ‘cleaning’. Just a very quick sweeping of the floor with a broom made of straw. No mopping of the floor, no nothing! The ladies don’t seem to know what cleaning means.
Breakfast: Average. The usual machine kind of orange juice, a lady would ask if we wanted an omelette, and there were 3 kinds of jam, fresh bread and butter. Filter coffee was ok.
Restaurant next door: I can speak highly of the Oasis Restaurant next door which has nothing to do with the hotel. Good service, nice people, western and Indian food. We used to have lunch and dinner here all 4 days.
If we had more time we would certainly look for another hotel but we remained here to avoid losing more time in searching around.
Never here again and I don’t recommend it to others as well.

ApartmentinLangkawi.com: Great apartment, best pool on Langkawi
We visited Langkawi six years ago on our way to Australia. Although we are keen travellers and seen many places, this island had a special charm for us, and we decided that it would be an ideal place for us to retire to when the time was right.
I returned a few months later to buy an apartment at CHOGM villa on the outskirts of Kuah - the capital town. Since then we visit at least once a year, and I feel I am therefore able to provide a balanced view of the island.
1)It is a beautiful and natural island, full of exotic animals and fauna. However, litter is a problem in some areas, and really spoils this natural beauty.
2)The islanders in the majority are happy, gentle and hospitable people who are welcoming to tourists. Smile and treat them with respect, and you will be treated the same.
3)The road system is excellent, driving standards are good (although whole families on mopeds can be a bit of a surprise!)
4)Food is abundant and inexpensive. There is a wide variety of style and price of places to eat, and most of it great value. The decor and tables/chairs in a lot of eating places may not be of restaurant standard, but the food is great.
5)It is a safe country, and I have never felt threatened or intimidated anywhere. My wife regularly travels there with her sister, and they have never had any problems at all.
6)The island is small enough to be accessible easily by car (which you will need in my opinion), but also big enough to have lots of things to see and do.
7)Great links with mainland Malaysia and the rest of Asia via Air Asia which I have found to be inexpensive with quality service.
8) The weather - everyday between 28 to 35 degrees, although during rainy season it does rain more than normal. Who cares though when rain is warm!
Overall, for my wife and myself Langkawi is the place that we want to spend lots of our time when we retire,and as much as possible time before then.
If you want to try the island for a short holiday can I suggest staying at the CHOGM Villa. Not only does it give you a real taste of living in a mixed community environment, but you will also meet other apartment owners who have emigrated to Langkawi and will give you their honest thoughts on living there. The complex also has the best swimming pool on the island!
Have a look at apartmentinlangkawidotcom.
A modern, well equipped 2 bedroom apartment on a secure complex on the outskirts of Kuah town in Langkawi.
Wonderful community, great pool, handy for Kuah, shops nearby.

Hotel Sweet Inn: Value for Money
We had a 3 nights stay at Sweet Inn in the last week of September 2010. The host Mr. Kamruddin is very friendly. He can arrange u for all the available tours in Langkawi. Staff is efficient. The service is very good. Rates are very reasonable. Its quite popular amongst the tourist. So make sure that u have booked the rooms in advance.
Sweet inn is very close to all the famous eateries & restaurants in Cenang such as Rasa,Orkid Ria, Breakfast bar etc. If u just cross the road then u are on Pantai Cenang Beach. Even car & Bike rentals are nearby. In my next Langkawi trip with my familly again Iam going to opt fr Sweet Inn only.

Foxhill Resort Langkawi: Kampong (village) stay
I stayed at Foxhill 10-13 Feb 2011 to get a 'feel' of what it would be like to live in Langkawi (in the middle of the island, where Foxhill is located, as opposed to a beach resort where I'd normally stay while on holiday).
It is run by Maria, a warm, bubbly, very cosmopolitan 'original' Kedah Malay lady! ;-) Since Langkawi's local population is Malay, you'd want to experience Malay hospitality, which is what she provides in a charming Malay kampong (village) style resort on a hill side, with friendly help and great home cooking! You can find the best 'rendang' in Langkawi in Maria's resort's kitchen :-)
I'd recommend you write to Maria and book well in advance as she has only 3 Malay style village houses (plus the tree house) which always get full! For, you get a 'house' here, mind you, not a room! ;-)
In addition to my Foxhill tip on VT, you can look it up with reviews from those who've stayed there on TripAdvisor (VT's parent company). There are plenty of pics there, except the tree house, pic of which I'm posting here plus (I think!) the best shot of Foxhill Resort Langkawi, looking down the hill (that I took)! ;-)
1) Unique Malay village experience in 2) authentic Malay houses 3) in a charming Malay village setting on a hillside 4) offering warm genuine Malay hospitality and 5) wonderful fresh home cooking :-)
