very nice architecture(traditional Malay huts).Minus point was the fan above our head; whenever we turned on the fan,the movement of the fan was so shaky ,as if it is going to fall onto our bed (I was so scared to use the fan ,but aircon alone is good enough).Another minus part is the wifi signal;no signal in our room and have to move to the balcony area whenever we want to use the internet (which is almost all the time when we were back to the hotel). The problem is, the balcony is outside,which is hot and lots of mosquitoes (may be because our room is garden view?).
Good parts:(1) swimming pool ( thanks god for the great swimming pool!i cant tell how disapointed i felt about the beach of Langkawi;nothing about white sand,blue sea that you will see in here.or did i come in the wrong season (end of jul)? yes, w/o the swimming pool, i wouldnt be able to use my bikinis at all as the beach is so not worth trying). (2)location is very near the airport(so you dont feel like rushing for your flight) and is at the center of town;which is convenient to local shops/restaurants.but it will take quite a walk to get there and you have to pass some dark area (no street light,). Recommend to try a diner at la casa de mar next door (recommendation in advance needed)
tips: if possible, try to avoid Ramadan period(july) as limited choice of food is avail outside resorts area,esp during the day when you go out to explore the island.
