The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Langkawi
After staying in a lovely hotel in Penang we thought that anywhere else we stayed wouldn't be as nice. Although when we arrived at the Westinn, we were all pleasanty surprised no downgrades at all! The hotel was lovely in a very scenic and quiet part of the island. The views surrounding the hotel were great and there were even wild monekys living …
Penang looks so small as we pull away. First things first: spotted home and Gurney Tower, the home of my regular Starbucks! Reality hits That moment when u realise ur on the other side of the world to your normal life..just chilling on a ferry over to an island people fly all the way to for honeymoons. Even though to u this feels standard-this …
... Athens that traveled every winter for 3 months. Exchanged some experience and than the rain stopped and we could leave again. The temperature had dropped quite a bit and we were not used to that as in Thailand the temperature never really changes in in the rain so it wasn't real comfortable on the way back. We weren't to impressed by the food here until now so we though we'd go for a burger at the McDonalds. The first in a long long time !! Great though with nice French fries, ...
... doesn't raise any questions of why i'm in that posh hotel. the sunset was absolutely stunning because the storm passed just before that and there were some very dramatic colours. and i sat by the water watching the storm nearby, listening to thunderstorms and washing my feet in warm sea water. in the true essence of my new approach to travelling, i looked up top activities in Langkawi on TripAdvisor and booked a sailing trip with the top company ...
Definitely felt so much better today! But I did wake up feeling slightly constipated. I tried and did not succeed! We went for breakfast and on the way to deciding where we were gonna go we gave up and had yet another maccies. After eating it I decided that the reason for my constipation could possibly have been due to eating too many maccies. I made up my mind that I should not have maccies for a while in order to clear my body of the unsaturated fats. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa
First, a bit of background: My wife and I have stayed at quite a few resort hotels in Asia. The Grand Hyatt Bali is our favorite and tends to serve as our measuring stick for other resorts. We have two small children who are the focus of our holidays.
Adored this hotel
Have returned recently from Langkawi. Stayed 9 nights at the Sheraton Perdana. We had a wonderful time. This hotel is entirely suitable for families( and other travelers too I'm sure). Our room was gorgeous. We had a beautiful view of the bay from the balcony. The monkey's came to visit on more than one occasion.
The staff were fantastic...nothing is too much trouble ...and the spa is an experience not to be missed.,
The food was great, variety was exceptional...had a different theme every night.
We were very sad to leave the Island...1st time ever while travelling. It was a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing experience we hope to repeat before too long.
ONE OF THE TOP 3 RESORTS IN LANGKAWI
we just returned from a 4 day stay at the resort and it was exceptional. the service was fantastic and the staff was extremely warm and friendly. we really had a great time at the resort and would recommend it to anyone looking to have a nice relaxing time with great service.
We stayed at the Sheraton Pedana in April for 8days and enjoyed the hotel and its facilities.This is a place for a quiet time not night clubbing.Most of the tourist hotels are on the west side of the island about 30minutes drive away.However a taxi can be hired for 20 ringetts an hour to get you around.Visit the Bon Ton restraurant for a beautiful meal,30 minutes by taxi and he will wait for you.
Sheraton Perdana Hotel excellent, staff could not do enough for us,great spar treatments very relaxing.Five min taxi ride to Kedah main town shops and resturants. Five min walk to yacht club great sun deck for a drink also food very good.A must is the Wonderland resturant for fresh fish,its always full with locals, we often saw staff from the hotel who always came over for a chat, meal for 2 with a few beers about 5.Cable cars a must views wonderfull.We arrived new years eve only one hotel had been damaged by the tsunami on the west coast and the locals ask us to tell everyone Langkawi is safe and open for tourist.Overall Langkawi is beautifull,very safe with the friendlest people we have ever met,We will go back
Stayed for 7 nights at the Perdana from 16th - 23rd January 2005 as part of a large family group of 19 that included elderly with limited mobility, babies, children, newly weds, DINKYs and normal adults. The hotel had facilities to keep us all happy- gym, sauna, sports centre, tennis courts, water sports centre, toddler play room, kids club, babysitting, 3 really well designed and very clean pools, landscaped gardens, pool bar, 2 restaurants, big bar area, style bar/club, shops and a Spa. It is 1km from Langkawi ferry terminal, from where the Scuba diving boats leave, and 2 kms from Kuah, the main town on Langkawi with a shopping mall, night markets, duty free shops and loads of restaurants. Perdana has it's own wide beautiful beach, but this is the only slight disappointment. Like some other Langkawi beaches the white sand can be quite course and contains many shells and broken coral, which can scratch your feet when you walk on it. However the gardens, pools and view are so good it is not an issue.
From the moment we arrived at the Perdana it was clear that all the staff were intent on making our holiday very special. The hotel exceeded our expectations. We had adjoining rooms; the brats were out of sight, but safe, happy and within earshot.
Relax in great location!!
My husband and I honeymooned at the Sheraton Perdana in December 2004. We found the service and facilities to be excellent! The hotel is beachfront, there are numerous pools to relax in, and lots of activities to do. The food was wonderful... and the service from staff was faultless. Our room had a balcony with perfect views of the ocean and surrounding islands.
Our highlight was definitely sitting around the pool bar meeting people from all parts of the world! We highly recommend the Sheraton Perdana.
Ideal Resort !
I just stayed in the Sheraton Perdana Resort a couple of months ago and it did live up to my expectations of a cosy resort. The location of the resort is not that good but its usually the case for resorts that is between 4-5 stars. The hotel lobby do have taxi services that charge 20 Malaysia dollars for an hour. The rooms are clean and the daily breakfast is excellent. You can enjoy your breakfast in the view of a beach. There are also a couple of swimming pools and most of them are facing the beach. You can also relax at the poolside with the windy breeze blowing at you. I would recommend this hotel to people who loves a quiet location with a excellent view.
First of all the hotel is very far from the airport, about 40 minutes in a quite remote area. The resort has it's own private beach but there were hardly any waves and the beach was not very pleasant so we mostly chilled out in the 3 huge pools that they have. Food was not very good, staff seemed a bit unprofessional. There was even some problem with our billing. Also the pictures shown online of a room with glass walls are infact of a villa which is basically for big families. The only good thing was the nice spa facility they had. I would not recommend this hotel unless you want to avail the spa facilities.
