Which area for beach bungalows/hotel on a budget

I'm looking at traveling to Langkawi with my other half and 2 children, aged 15 and 11 in january for 1 week.

accommodation seems quite upmarket and expensive, please can anyone recommend a nice beach bungalow/hotel in the beach with local character? Our budget is about £80.00 per night.

Thank you.

Hi

Look at such places as AB Motel, Malibest, White Lodge Motel or Casa Fina.

January is peal season and places are usually booked well in advance and are expensive.

AB motel, try for a beachfront seaview room.

You would be better phoning them directly as they can be rather slow to reply to emails.

There are a few new and nice bungalows in Tanjung Rhu next to Scarborough. This beach is still very nice and not so busy but sure a bit more remote. I would say just perfect with kids. I do not know the names of the reasorts here. Sorry.

Thanks Lesley, I will have a look at those options.

Is it very touristy around that part Of langkawi? We like it to be a bit lively for the kids but not 'package holiday' like.

Thanks again.

Thanks for that tip!

I can't find AB through online agents, I guess it's direct booking only.

Pantai Cenang is the main tourist area on the island. If you stay anywhere else you will need transport and you have said you are on a budget.

Not sure if you have booked already sorry but suggestion - look at Tengah - beach is good and nicer than Cenang and Tropical Resort is cheap and great for a family - Sunset resort even cheaper.
