Researching the best place to stay in Langkawi? Stop looking - you've found it!
Panji is exactly as advertised: peaceful, relaxing, and fun. It has an ideal location that is close enough to the main shops, restaurants, bars, and beaches (a 10 minute ride on bicycles provided free of charge by the property) but secluded enough to escape the noise and just switch off.
The air conditioned rooms are quite spacious with very large and comfortable beds. Private showers and toilets are attached but with semi-open roofs. Nice pool onsite which we took a dip in after a long day in the sea.
There is also a very popular cafe with the best coffee on the island, all served by very friendly and helpful staff. It's open from 8am to 6pm if memory serves. Very chilled out vibe with live music and delicious food. Be sure to try the banana pancakes....
As great as the property is, it's the staff that really makes the experience spectacular. Azmil the property manager is the man with the plan, he helped us arrange airport transfers (highly recommended as you get to cruise around in a classic VW van with some local knowledge to get your feet set), a scooter to jet around the island, and was always available to answer every question/request or just to have a friendly chat about Langkawi, Malaysia, life, whatever.
So what are you waiting for? Book already :)
To Azmil and all of the Panji Panji team...you guys made our trip a special one. Our only regret is not staying longer! Thank you for everything, and we hope to see you again.
A very pleasant little place to stay with lots of character, friendly staff and relaxed setting.
Our room had lots of character nice and spacious with the bonus of many trees dotted around the place to make it feel very relaxed.
Team we very helpful and responsive assisting with sorting out trips. Breakfast was great, basically a choice of whatever was appropriate off the menu, which included pancakes, juices and yoghurt amongst others.
Cafe also offered food and coffee until early evening and did a reasonable pasta and cake. However they close at 6pm so not for an evening meal.
Location wise it's about 15 Minute walk to the Main Street, but that has generally touristy generic restaurants. There are a couple of higher end places just about 10 minute walk away and a bit nearer.
Overall though really good and we had a pleasant stay.
Azmil and all the staff could not be more welcoming. Great pool, gardens, breakfast, bed will be back
We stayed here for 7 days. We had the manager on whatsapp who sorted anything we asked of him within minutes ( including car rental, laundry and day trips). The breakfast is lovely and plentiful. The coffee is the best around.
The rooms were very authentic and clean, with an amazing outdoor shower. The bed was comfortable and huge!
It's a 5 minute walk to the beach, 15 minute walk to main strip of the beach, however the hotel provides bicycles free of charge so you can get there in a matter of minutes stress free.
Definitely recommend this hotel and Langkawi as a whole.
Great atmosphere. Wonderful cafe. Friendly and accommodating staff.
My wife and I will return again...
