stayed at this hotel last week and it was everything you would expect from a beachside property on Langkawi. We actually stayed in the Sea Village (wooden houses on stilts in the sea).
The property was more like an apartment with crisp white linen, traditional wooden furniure and a fully marbled bathroom and huge walk in shower.
Around the vicinity of the property there was very little going on, but a taxi to Patai Cenang only cost 18 Ringgits (£3.60) and it took approx 10 mins to get to all the restaurants of which there was loads to suit every taste possible. Prices range from £3.50 per head for a pizza and beer was approx £1.25 and soft drinks less than £1.00.
The choice of breakfast at the hotel was very good, but the bread and butter pudding and pasta for breakast was a new one on me, but there was everything else you would expect, cereal, fruit, toast, pancakes, waffles, eggs, omlettes, beef bacon and chicken sausages (no pork as halal only).
The restaurant is also nice and serves a la carte rather than buffet style evening meals, these were certainly alot more expensive than in town, but for a nice meal for two with desserts it would cost c£25, no alcohol in the restaurant, but there is a separate lounge bar whcih serves it at the hotel.
Trips and car hire more expensive through the hotel, but every trip you can imagine can be booked at the numerous travel agents in Patai Cenang at about 60% of the hotel price.
Cars can be hired at the airport which again is a 5 minute taxi ride and costs 12 Ringitts (£2.50). Although, hotel very near airport, you wouldn't notice as hardly any flights go from there or land.
Overall, i would definitely recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate going back. Staff very helpful and friendly and the setting is just idyllic for the price you pay.
We paid £68 per night through Agoda for a studio at the Sea Village part of the hotel. There are of course rooms in the main hotel buiding, but for something a bit different and amazing views of the sunset opt for the Sea Village.
