White Lodge Motel
Ranked #5 of 16 Hotels in Pantai Cenang
Reviewed 27 October 2011

Having taken an extremely early flight to Langkawi, we reached the hotel about 9am. We were very lucky to have the room available so we managed to catch some rest until after noon. We took the superior room (told to be newer and more spacious) and we liked it (saved for the solid green walls). We enjoyed our stay there; the aircon/fan and mini fridge worked well, hair dryer was provided on request and tea/coffee making facility was given. WIFI is also provided for free though the signal was really unstable from our room (It was one of the farthest from the reception area). The only problem we had was with the water pressure on the second night. The water pressure was really low and we had difficulties taking shower that night itself. The pressure became better when the morning came. Do note that the chalet is located near pantai tengah rather than pantai cenang (it is at the end of pantai cenang) but scooters are aplenty to be rented from outside the chalet. The staffs were extremely helpful too. We were allowed to leave our luggage with them after we have checked out (since our flight was at night) and provided us with towels and soap to refresh ourselves (there is a bathroom at the reception area) just before we left the chalet. That was really convenient after a hot and humid afternoon at the beach. Should we return to langkawi, we will return to this little chalet.

Room Tip: try requesting for a room near the reception if WIFI is really important

Here's the good: pretty cheap (approx USD$45 p night for standard room), located near Underwater World, a few mins walk from the beach.

Here's the not so good: It's basic, no pool, rooms are pretty dark, pillows are poor, no shampoo or shower gel provided, cleaners knocked on door 3 times between 08.30 and 10am.

Summary: If you are only sleeping there and on a budget then it could work. If you want more comfort, a pool and somewhere to relax, you should look elsewhere (eg. Malibest which has more comfortable rooms rights on the beach for the same cost though no pool).

Location
Motel is located on the Pantay Chenang beach behind the road very close to Underwater world (300-400 meters). The hotel territory likes a triangle with chalets on 2 sides and studio under reception on the 3rd. Very quit green small territory. The new construction between the road and the hotel is not visible from the hotel. Works there are very slow (2-nd floor started). No any discomfort.
The nearest beach is in 400 meters. Just cross the road and go straight through the territory of other motels. The beach is sandy. A little beet dirty what is depends on the sea tranquility. No chairs on the beach. The option is to buy bedding in tourist shop and use this in time of ebb. When flooded sand is covered by sea and no place to lie. For me best time for swimming is ebb time. Water is low, the sea floor is flat and waves are small. Behind waves sea is quite. More comfortable beach located behind the Underwater world (take from the right side of the building).
Room
The difference between deluxe and superior rooms is in condition of the room. First was constructed earlier and has old furniture, lamp TV. Second are new constructed and now are fresh. I’ve booked deluxe room but when arrived decided to change to superior. Difference is 30 RM a day.
As this is my first experienced in 2 star I’m a little bit captious. Room is large enough for 2 persons with very good wide & tough king bed; air condition ;small desk with mirror, flat 22”TV with 2-3 Malaysian channels; no sat; small quit refrigerator; tea table with kettle, 2 cups & 2 glasses, tea spoons; very small musty clothes locker with wire hangers. Sound proofing is poor. No place to dry clothes except of 3 chairs.
Bathroom is large enough. Shower installed rigidly on the wall; personal water heater; small wash basin, bowl with shower. No shelf, small shelf for bath sponge only . Shampoo was kept on the floor.
The small terrace in front of the chalet with 2 chairs with no table for superior room (deluxe has one).
Room is supplied with toilet paper, soap, daily coffee 3-in-1. Towels are changed daily (only 2 bath towels). Bed sheets in good condition (more probably daily change). Daily cleaning.
Internet connection is very poor. Every 2-3 minutes you need to repair this. Very often is out of service.
As for me I had very good stay. Nothing prevents me to relax. A lot of cafes around.
Prices
Exchange rate in Langkawi is higher that in KL airport (2.87 vs. 2.82 for US$)
Taxi from airport is RM20, to Kuah town is RM24; laundry costs RM4-6 per kg (w/o ironing); 1 liter if Chivas Regal 12 yo is RM65; 0,33 of Carlsberg is RM1,60; massages are quit expensive comparing to Thailand and Bali, is approx. RM80; Rent a car with automatic gear is RM80 (low season), petrol is RM2/litre.
Weather in September 2011. Rain is 1,5 days from 8. Some rains in other days despite that forecast was terrible. Very comfortable season.
Tips
Bring coffee with you. Nescafe classic and 3-in-1 are available in local shops only, fumigator and cord to dry clothes are desirable. Plug adapter, umbrella are available at reception. Yogurts are available in beach duty free. To get to the fruit shop turn the left from the hotel by main street.

Really pleased to have found this motel after reading other reports here on Trip Advisor. I stayed for 4 nights in one of their Deluxe rooms, which was very clean, a comfortable bed and well equipped room. Nice TV, although no International channels present in English. Useful to have a fridge to put in your own provisions, a nice touch! Bathroom big with a powerful shower. The resort is in a nice secluded location and the path up to it is well lit at night, feels safe and is only around a 2 or 3 minute walk to the main street. A really great place to stay. Rates can be quite high (compared to other nearby places) depending on season, however this is probably one of the best motels in the area.

From Georgetown, it's a 2-3 hr. ferry ride to Langkawi. If you are visting Penang, this is a highlight not to be missed. From the ferry dock, it's a 40 min. taxi ride to this resort area. (Ask what the fare will be...the rate wasn't dirt cheap, but reasonable for 3 people. The roads are new and condo development is soon to happen so go within the next couple of years. White Lodge is tucked away off the main street so it was a little difficult for the taxi driver to find. Eateries and the beaches are 5-7 mins. away - it's an easy walk. Lodge owner was very gracious and there was no problem getting into the room when we arrived. We booked via the internet a couple of days ahead - $38/night for a large, clean room with fridge + coffee maker. Make sure to take the Geopark tour. Check around and take the tour that lasts about 6 hrs, lunch incl. Other Geopark tours were 3-4 hrs, no lunch and the same price. Shuttle picks you up at the lodge.

Room Tip: learn a few Malay words, smile and be gracious...
