This is one of the most baddest hotel experience that i had ever endured. The hotel is old and really look run down. The complexity of the hotel is even look old and irrelevant in todays hotel scene. The location of this hotel is also bad. Even though this hotel is located next to Holiday Villa Hotel, the neighbouring hotel... More

My second stay here. The Lanai needs a lot of work due to the fact it's always due to be closed down, then all of a sudden it's open for 6 more months. Beds are comfy and bedding very clean, bathroom is just bearable. However great pool, nice breaky, free wifi in the lobby but best of all is the... More

Don't stay here. I was recommended this place by a friend who said the rooms were a bit old but the staff was very friendly and the pool was great. The pool was great but that was all it had going for it. Our room was very old and had mold in the shower. When we asked to change rooms... More

A good hotel to spend time with your family & friends especially on a long vacation. Just chip in to the fitness center or take a walk by the pool to start the morning. This would be a good start. Good food for all, but at the same time it is just mind blowing rooms, interiors and guide that will... More

The Lanai is located on a very quiet beach at the end of the tourist area. The rooms are very basic and small but clean. The pool is huge and with a bit of TLC it could be amazing . There is a dining area upstairs where we had breakfast each day. The variety of food lessened each day as... More

We stayed at the Lanai resort for the fourth time recently and again we enjoyed most of the experience. We were given the room we wanted and we appreciated this very much.

Langkawi is an expensive island for hotels and we chose this inexpensive one. It was okay for the four days we were there. The room was very small and rundown. The reception staff were very helpful and pleasant. Free WiFi in the lobby only. The restaurant was okay but more expensive than going out to eat and unfortunately the staff... More

It's basically a hotel with a long list of no's. No porter, no lifeguard, no lifts, rooms with no ventilation, no housekeeping after midnight. There was even a couple of cockroaches and a stray cat running around the breakfast spread. The beach was well- maintained with an absence of watersport activities.
