Bella Vista Langkawi: Castle in Langkawi
Stayed at : 2 bedroom apartment
Price : RM250 per night with breakfast
1) very near to lobby, coffee house & seaside - nice view
2) ample parking space, very near our apartment
3) very near to Kuah town
4) very good House-keeping service - fast
1) Although it was a 2 rooms apartment, only one room has air-cond, 2nd room only has a ceiling fan. Another air-cond was at the living room, so have to switched on that unit the whole day to ensure the other bedroom is cooling.
2) Pipe water supply is yellowish in colour, must be the poor piping system. The water is not drinkable & have to bear with it during shower.
3) Shower head is fixed on the wall - not children friendly
4) Swimming Pool is closed
5) Limited food & same food for breakfast every morning

Stardust: Floating hotel
We went on an overnight cruise on Stardust for two nights while we were in Langkawi. The scenery was stunning and changed every day, as did the swimming pool and at night we slept under a canopy of stars. Some of the other guests were on day cruises, or joined us for dinner but we had the nights to ourselves. The service was informal , but the captain Dean and the crew were great. We sea kayaked through caves and went to remote beaches, helped steer the ship and get the sails up and there was still plenty of time for reading.
This was a bit of a lifestyle thing. There are cabins but it was nicer on deck as Stardust isn't air conned. Its a bit like glorified camping without the rain, without mosquittoes and with lots of great food and bucket fulls of cocktails.

Hi, i am just back from my holiday in Malaysia and i spent some unforgettable days in Rebak Island Resort, Langkawi .This recently revamped resort which is now managed and operated by,as i was told, The Taj Group is undoubtedly Heaven on Earth.I would recommend all those who are planning to spend some quiet moments with their loved ones,away from the bustle of city life to head there,and if you are planning to go to this resort i would advice you'll to go there by September,so that you'll can avail of their special introductory price,just like i did.Believe me, it makes a lot of difference.
I have come back with memories that i will cherish for a lifetime.The hospitality and the service of the staff there is unbilevable.They have this warmth in them, that makes you feel at home.For Foodies this is the place to be.You can enjoy cuisines of all types under one roof at the Rebak Island Resort's restaurants :Senari and Boardwalk.

Rebak Island Resort offers an exotic balance between diversity, activity, and exclusivity. Glorious sunshine, deep azure water, romantic caves, tucked away corners along the beach and breathtaking flora weave enchanting memories.Only when you go to this beautiful resort, will you agree to what i am saying.
The Rebak Island Resort is indeed unique and this makes you feel "special".

Hotel Baron: Nearest Hotel to Kuah Night Market
I am putting up this tip is just because one of our VT friend did asked about which hotel that is situated near to Kuah Night Market.
The answer is the Baron Hotel. It is not a 'star star' hotel that offer luxurious and high class services plus accommodation. It is just a budget hotel and being build just next to Kuah's River.
And the night market which being held in Kuah for every Saturday and Wednesday is just in front of this hotel doorstep.

Delta Motel: Cheap but not even worth that
We arrived on the Ferry from Penang and thought we would try a beach chalet. However, they did not have any air conditioned rooms left and this one with a fan was awful. However, only £9 a night so you can't really complain.

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 :-)
