Today we hired a driver as I figured that if we hired a car and there was an accident, it'll be on me and I'd have a lot of headache so I didn't bother and rather get someone else to drive us. At the end of the day, he was actually quite a good driver, waited for us when needed and picked us up promptly so I was happy with him.
First up …
Today we went to the Oriental Village where the cable car is. It's not called the Oriental Village for nothing! It does look oriental and like a village! It looked like some Korean tv series was shot here as well as they had some pictures to show it and the landscape was left there as well.
Onto the cable car, the first part of the ride …
Today we went on a mangrove tour. On the way there, we passed a few villages and I sweat they looked the same as those that I am used to seeing in Mauritius. They looked exactly the same.
We were driven to a jetty where we caught a boat. First up was a rock where it was made of limestone with trees/mangroves growing out of it. Our guide …
We did the island hopping tour today and coming back to the hotel and thinking about it, I thought it was pretty good. We were picked up very promptly at 8.30am from the hotel and driven for half an hour to Pantai Cenang. We were picked up by boat firstly to visit the Pregnant Maiden Island. The boat to go there was quite quick and very breezy so …
We had a to wake up quite early today as the flight was on at 10.55am. We caught Air Asia to Langkawi as it seemed the cheapest and most direct way to get there from Singapore. Getting on Air Asia was similar to getting on Jetstar or Virgin. The flight wasn't too packed with about half the plane empty and no one in business class. The airport …

A Piece of Paradise on Earth
I couldn't agree more with the previous review. My wife and I have stayed here twice now and wouldn't hesitate to visit again on our stopover to and from UK & New Zealand/Australia. Love the people & the place. Great food too!
Hope everyone is holding up after the tsunami disaster. Our thoughts are with you.
I can't understand some of the reviews here. We had a fantastic time, the meals were great and the service excellent (and we have stayed in a lot of up market Hotels) I agree that some of the chalets are a bit of a walk but there is a shuttle service operating for those that prefer. The rooms were also clean and tidy and serviced promptly and discretely. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly, and promptly attended to any requests we had. There is also a very reasonably priced hire car service at the resort so that you can explore this islands many charms. If you are younger and lookng for a lively holiday full of nightclubs and technical entertainment (DVD's etc) then perhaps this place wont suit, but I would recommend this resort without reservation to those who are looking for a relaxing break away where you can totally unwind. In my view this resort should be rated at a four star.
Depends on the Chalet
...some are awful - some are average and some are great. Depends very strong on the maintenance of the single chalet and the location within the ressort. The ressort with its SPA is great, but possibly this is usual on this dreamful island.
My partner and I didn't choose the best time to visit Langkawi as it rained most of the time we were there. We got a package deal holiday which included 9 nights at the Langkawi Berjaya resort.
2 week honeymoon
We went on our honeymoon in the middle of october, the weather was fantastic, although we found out later we were very lucky with that.
The rooms as stated are in need of some attention, but if you wait, or if you book into the chalets/suites on the sea front, then i don't think you will be disapointed.
Enormous cockroaches might wake you up during the night, a big shoe will get rid of them.
The staff were very pleasant and couldn't do enough for you, the food was excellent and a very fair price.
My wife and i really enjoyed our stay, and have considered going back at some time.
What a Dump
Very disappointed, definitely not 4*. Chalets old and worn, everything shabby. Needs refurbishing.
I don't recognise the hotel I stayed at from the first two reviews on the page. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful (I've been to Malaysia many times and I've never had anything but fantastic service during my stay). It's not a 5 star resort, the rooms are basic but comfortable. If you're worried about hearing your next-door neighbours pay the little bit extra and get your own detached bungalow on stilts (if you can stretch to it, try one over the water). If you don't enjoy walking or waiting for the shuttle that runs around the resort (you just have to phone reception to request it) ask in advance for one of the bungalows close by to the pool and restaurants. The spa is away from the main resort area but the staff are happy to call a shuttle for you, I never had to wait longer than 10 minutes. The spa itself is fantastic and the quality of the treatments is superb. The restaurant overlooking the sea was our favourite but there are a number of other restaurants to try. If you're staying more than a week you may grow tired of the on site restaurants but a short walk outside the hotel grounds you'll find a duty free outdoor shopping complex which also has a number of restaurants as well as access to the Langkawi Cable Car (great views from the top). I'd happily recommend the resort.
Dreadful - do not stay here
1 The rooms were permanently damp
2 The partition walls betweens walls was too thin - all sound from the neighbouring rooms was clearly audible
3 The rooms were too far from the beach and the hotel
4 The bathroom needed refurbishing
5 The towels were old and threadbare
6 The food in the restaurants was disgusting and overpriced
7 The airconditioning in the room did not properly work
After 4 nights there we move hotel at our expense. We have complained to the agents who recommended the place.
We were scheduled to stay 8 nights at this resort - we stayed 2 and relocated at extra expense.
A Great Place To Stay
A really great resort with an excellent Spa attached. Overall, it was a great value place to stay and the staff were fantastic. The accomodation in the beach huts was too a very good standard however, the sound proofing in the twin huts left a lot to be desired. Paying the extra for a single hut is the way forward if you value your privacy. All in all though, a very good place to stay that is not too expensive when compared to some of the more upmarket resorts on Langkawi.
