“An absolute gem with the most wonderful staff!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

Stayed here for 3 days and 3 nights, and would happily stay again. The resort itself is peaceful and tucked away from the busy Cenang beach vibe. My room was clean, bright, had A/C, a mini fridge, a good bathroom and a front porch with two chairs to lounge on. The beach was a 2min walk from my room too. Essentially everything I needed. The staff here are always smiling and so lovely they will go out of their way to make your stay a good one! At breakfast every morning, the staff remembered my name. Their kindness and hospitality saw everyone enjoying breakfast and starting their morning with a big smile on their faces. One of the staff members hopped on his scooter to buy more eggs for my omelette because the remaining ones weren't fresh enough! Granted it doesn't have a restaurant, there are so many to choose from within walking distance anyway! It's a 10min walk to the centre of Cenang beach. Thank you Tropical Resort for making my trip so wonderful!!

Staff and service were excellent. Location was in close proximity to all aminities, restaurants, transportation, Spa, supermarkets and most importantly: close to the beach.
Friendly staff especially Mr Rusly. He gave us plenty of information about where to go and how to get there.
Tropical resort was excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the beach, if available.

Spent 3 nights here in February with my mother, couldn't have been happier. The rooms were so clean and the staff was super welcoming and friendly - especially Roslee. Great price for the location and includes breakfast. So nice that its a bit out of the way and so close to the beach -- really peaceful and quite. We stayed at another place for our next 3 days and even though it was right on the beach it was way too noisy! I will recommend this place to anyone looking for simple, clean accommodation in a good location with great service!

My 3rd stay here, previous being 2001 and 2012. Last time had a marriage proposal. This time on honeymoon.
If you want 5star with whistles and flutes, try somewhere else. If you want a great location, fantastic value breakfast and clean and tidy no frills, good size chalets only 50m from the best beach on Langkawi - here is where you want to be. And yes we will be returning. Beach views with rooms 17 & 18.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at this lovely resort.We booked online last July and when we arrived the staff gave us the room as requested on the beachside close to the main reception so we could pick up wifi in our room. Very comfortable room with kettle tv and fridge and complementary drinking water. We were given breakfast vouchers for each morning we stayed it was a buffet service of a very high standard plenty of choice and filled you up for the day. The manager greeted us every morning and the staff in general were very helpful and friendly. On our last day we were not flying home until the evening and we had to checkout of our room at 12 noon but the manager provided a room for us so we could shower and change. The staff even lent us towels and a beach mat on the last day. For the money it was an excellent place to stay and we would definately stay at the resort again

This hotel is awesome and a nice way to cap off our trip to Malaysia. The hotel is located just off the main drag of Langkawi and is within a moderate walk to the main tourist area. Our room was very clean, but very basic and the bathroom could use an update - but this hotel is fantastic for the price. We were in the last room on the corner of the property (beach side) and it was very quiet. We were even able to get internet access from the reception area early in the morning and later in the evening without leaving our room. We also saw hornbills hanging out in the trees right outside our room!

The hotel was a short walk to a beautiful and quiet beach. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast cafe was perfect. There are restaurants, laundry serivce, spas, and a convenience store just across the street. We really could not have asked for a better stay, especially for the price.

Room Tip: Request a room on the beach side for maximum enjoyment.

We stayed here for three nights during a very busy CNY holiday weekend on Langkawi (January 2014.) Our experience was wonderful. The hotel is a set of duplex cottages, well-shaded and kept very clean by the staff. The breakfast spread is excellent: standard western fare is set out when it starts at 7:00, and they refresh those items while also preparing various local dishes during the breakfast hours. The reception desk is only open for 12 hours, but the owner of the property is available during breakfast hours as well. He and the rest of the staff were very kind and courteous on all of the occasions we had to interact with them.

We were doing this trip in a very cost-conscious manner, and decided against staying at an inclusive resort for that reason. The key to doing this sort of trip successfully is having a clean and quiet base of operations, and this hotel was perfect for our needs. Tengah Beach is much more conducive to laying out and relaxing than the busier Cenang Beach to the north.

This hotel is especially well-suited for travelers who are hiring a car or scooter: there is ample parking, and the street is quiet enough that you won't get stuck waiting for an opening to leave (unlike on the main drag that runs down Cenang). At the same time, you're close enough to the bustle of Cenang that it's a pleasant walk, especially in the evening breeze.

I have already recommended this hotel to friends and family in Singapore and would definitely stay there again if our travels return us to Langkawi.

Room Tip: If you reserve your room far enough in advance, ask for one of the rooms closest to the beach.
