“Lovely stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

I recently stayed at the resort for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The pool is beautiful and the views stunning. The beach is very nice, perhaps not the most beautiful in Langkawi, but certainly very lovely. The spa is right down on the beach. The lobby of the hotel and all outdoor areas are gorgeous, however the rooms are looking a little tired and dated. There is also a very odd bath which is quite difficult to climb in to! Breakfast was very good, the other menus were also good but on the expensive side- 12GBP for a burger. Over all I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ideally a sea view with a balcony

We had the greatest time ever in this beautiful resort n spa. The staff was very helpful and the service was very good. The management n staff went out of their way to be prompt and polite . The food at the resort was amazing esp the breakfast variety was amazing. So was the lunch buffet . The pool n the beach were really a dream .
We had a beautiful large kingsize bedroom with a breath taking view of some of the many islands that make up Langkawi .

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the island view and closer to lobby. King size rooms were larger n roomier.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

The Westin Resort is a large property, with exquisite gardens and stunning views. The hotel has a variety of accomodation styles to suit budget and needs. We stayed on the 3rd Floor of Building 4 and had lovely views across the gardens and pools towards Kuah Jetty. Don't leave anything on the balcony (food or clothing) as the monkeys have a habit of stealing as seen by us with a large amount of humour.

The rooms were very nice and had character, whilst all staff were outstanding. Generally the hotel was quiet and tranquil, but that can change anywhere with any ignorant and rowdy clientele. The pools and recreation areas are excellent and other reviews advise that the kids club is good, therefore the Westin Resort makes for a perfect family get away or a couples escape.

My only negative is that the prices for food and drinks within the resort are outrageously high compared to local restuarants, therefore we stocked our fridge with duty free alcohol and cheap nibbles. The absolutely fantastic breakfast buffet allowed enough protein and carbs to get through the day, before venturing out to enjoy dinner amongst the locals. Always ask the taxi drivers, as each suggestion provided to us was CHEAP and EXCELLENT !!

Dear sjanderson,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review and share your opinions with the other reviewer in Tripadvisor. It is delighted to note that you were happy with your sea view room and I am grateful to continue receiving positive comment on the magnificent view of the Andaman Sea. Also, thank you for sharing the tips regarding the monkeys! They are cute and indeed wild too.

I acknowledge your comments regarding our pricing for food. Please allow us to continue monitor our F&B pricing, and to make sure it is in line with other five star hotels in Langkawi. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The entire team and I at The Westin Langkawi look forward to welcome you back for another renewing stay.

I was there couple years ago and have since called it my paradise. Quiet place with great service and facilities. The Langkawi Yacht is within walking distance. Excellent in all aspects. Never got disappointed in the hotel. Joined the "sunset cruise" and turned out to be an experience of life. Drinking beer in water over a net while watching beautiful sunset. Highly recommended for romantic holidays of couples.

This hotel won't disappoint you, I only have good things to say about it. Beautiful setting and pools, the buffet breakfast is one of the best I have ever had and the dinner buffett was also very good. The staff were friendly and responded to our every need. As mentioned in other reviews, if you don't want to eat at the hotel every night there is the yacht club in walking distance. We went there for dinner one night, we found the staff friendly, my husband's meal wasn't good but they were very apologetic and didn't charge us for it and also took us back to the hotel in their shuttle. The next closest restaurants are at Langkawi Fair which is an 8 ringgit taxi fair. I think if you were to stay at the Westin for more than a couple of days it would be ideal to hire a car to see the other popular areas of the island rather than pay for taxi's. I would definitely return to this hotel.
