“Aged but reasonably priced with good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

The hotel has certainly shown signs of aging but otherwise I'd say the stay is comfortable. The check-in was fast, the room is clean with sea view. Although the hotel is located along the shore of the sea, it is a rocky shore and not of the sandy beach type. The swimming pool and the cafeteria are located by the sea. Having the morning breakfast by the sea is a nice addition. As for location, the hotel is located in Kuah town (near the coast) with nearby restaurants opening mostly at night. For its price, I'd say it is a great bargain for an above average hotel.

Room service not so fast. But location and view is good. If you think to enjoy the beach then go for tunjhu ruh resort. It was nice. We alws freely move by our rented car to all over langkawi.... its wonderful for driving .... I miss the driving and roadside beach view in the airport roads.

The rooms were spotless, toilets were clean, A/C was cold enough, room service was excellent.

In spite of us switching off the AC and going out, when we returned, we were pleasantly surprised to see that not only was the housekeeping work done, they had switched on the AC as well.

The bar by the pool was really relaxing. Decent sized pool.

Staff by the hotel were polite all the time and were available 24 hours.

If there's one thing I would change, it would be the fact that when we asked for drinking water at around 2 AM, we were refused, stating that it would be available only in the morning.

Apart from this little glitch, a fantastic experience overall.

Room Tip: If you are going in a group of 5 to 8, ask for the duplex suite. It has ample space with sufficient...

Me and my partner stayed in the Bella Vista Resort & Spa Langkawi In May for five nights in a sea view room, after reading the reviews on here i was apprehensive to say the least about what to expect. Upon arrival the hotel looks like a fairy tale castle, the check in location was clean and decently sized the bellboys attentive ready with a cart as soon as they noticed we had luggage. The rooms are clean and for the price spacious with decent amenities.

The staff i found were extremely friendly and happy to help with what ever questions we might have had. I have to give special mention the the staff at the bar they were always smiling happy to help and gave better service then i've received at some Five star places in the past.

The breakfast Buffet was average in range a few hot dishes some cereal eggs and omelettes available to order as well as some fruit coffee and juices if it wasn't included i probably wouldn't have eaten there everyday but for a freebie i couldn't complain.

Check out was smooth and problem free.

For a Three Star resort this place exceeded all my expectations, and really made my stay in langkawi a great experience both me and my partner enjoyed it enough to already be planning a return visit.

Room Tip: Sea View Rooms are a Must most amazing view to wake up to every morning

This hotel has a superb setting and quite a nice pool and view, but the service and tired rooms do not match. A little more attention to detail and enthusiasm from staff could be expected, and while one can't really fault anything in particular, apart from an ordinary breakfast buffet and no change at check out, you don't get a good feeling while staying at the place... This compared to other hotels in the area comes in low down.

I stayed here from march 12,2014 to march 15,2014 with my wife and kid.The interior of the hotel doesn't match with it's beautiful exterior environment.The reception lobby is too hot,Lift is scary,the AC of our room was not working properly.The view of the hotel is nice but the beach is not for swimming.The pool area adjacent to the sea is beautiful.service is not so good.I loved the breakfast at the hotel restaurant with that breathtaking scenery of the sea.

I was really excited about this Hotel as their pictures are great on Google, but the moment I stepped inside it I knew I was going to regret. Firstly the reception was so hot with a minimum seating capacity and looked quite gloomy. Then the lift, oh goshhhh....I was freaking out. It was broken and looked sooo poor. Walking to my room it felt like an old hospital. The room was awfully small with partially sea view.The bathroom was such a turn off but clean. Amenities were okay but they should add a few things like tooth brush, bath robe etc. At night the hotel becomes scary with those dim lights and becomes dark outside the hotel. Don't get fooled by their exterior decoration since their interior is just the opposite.
Service is absolutely awful. The breakfast area isn't tht great but the sea view with the area is soothing to sip on a coffee.
My biggest regret would be staying in this hotel during my entire trip to Malaysia.
