“Perfect weekend away”
Reviewed 4 July 2009

Excellent resort for the following reasons:

- Excellent service and very friendly welcome from the owner, Leila, who is German but is married to a Malay from Langkawi. Very friendly lady - made me feel comfortable at once and she gave me lots of advice on what to see in Langkawi. Organised a taxi driver for us (who is a family friend). Taxi driver didn't charge us exorbitant prices and was always on time! Very happy with the service.

- Had a seaview room for 90 MYR per night / per room. Perfect! Clean rooms with A/C and TV ( we didn't try the TV as we wanted to be in complete peace and quiet!). Beach only 1 minute walk away from the rooms. No-one was on the beach when we went, so we had everything to ourselves!!! Lots of fun playing in the sea and riding the waves.....

- No-where to eat on site, however across the road there is somewhere to have breakfast, lunch and dinner. Italian and Indian - very tasty and good prices. There is also a fruit store around the corner. Excellent fruit at decent prices!

- There is a high quality spa next to the resort. Got a massage and pedicure / manicure done. Very professional and relaxing! 10% discount on massages when you stay at this resort. Highly recommend the spa as the staff are friendly and the massages are great!!!

The owner is a very nice person, reliable and helpfull. Bungalows are in walking distance of the center of Pantai Cenang. There are also many good restaurants near. Bungalows are very clean and just few steps from the beach. Price 90RM night is really great for all the service you get. There isnt any breakfast possible, but you can get it in a near restaurant just across the road. There is a fruit-vegetable store and minimarket next to the resort.

Tropical Resort was a good value for the price. It was clean, the owner was friendly, and
the location (while a little off the main track) was good for us. The negatives: it was set up more like a B&B than a hotel i.e. no clean towels on day 2, when we asked reception (the owner) for normal hotel help it felt like we were putting her out. It felt more like we were staying in someone's home than at a hotel. Also, the beach was not too nice--no sweeper so there's lots of garbage where the tide comes up. However, the beach is a 2 minute walk from the back steps of the 'resort'. Overall, I'd recommend this place for backpackers, but not for anyone looking for a romantic island vacation.

We had struggled to find somewhere to stay, and had to spend the night at a grotty place (Daddys place)
my partner stumbled across this place and we moved the the Tropical resort the next day.
The owner is so friendly and cannot do enough to help you. she is very sincere.
the bungalow was spotless and clean, and in a great location next to the beach.

Each time we visit Langkawi, Tropical Resort is our first choice of accommodation. The owners, Laila and Musa, make us feel like friends. They give us the same room each time we visit. But what we love most is the quiet and solitude of this place, far from the mad hippe crowds at Pantai Cenang! This place is just round the corner, located on a more serene stretch called Pantai Tengah and I can tell you, it's worlds apart from the crazy, tacky, touristy, ugly Pantai Cenang.

Tropical Resort is NOT scary, for goodness sake. It is a peaceful place if you want to go for rest with your spouse. It is not meant for families with kids as this will disrupt the general peace (unless your kids are well behaved).

The grounds are always clean and safe. The room is pleasantly clean, fresh sheets, fresh towels because I know Laila personally (as we have stayed here more than 3 times already and each time we arrive, we feel like we are coming home) and she is a stickler for cleanliness. Her rooms and bathrooms are impeccable and spotless.

The other wonderful advantage of being in Tropical Resort is that everything you could possibly need is a stone's throw away. Opposite Tropical Resort are friendly cafes and restaurants, a mini market for your water and snack needs. Down the road (towards the Awana Porto) are more restaurants and cafes worth a visit (Silk Gallery and Sunday Bistro) come to mind immediately as affordable and serving delicious Western and Chinese cuisine. If you need a massage, Alun Alun Spa is located next door to Tropical Resort! What more can one ask for?

It's the bestest little hidden resort. It does not have a pool but about 100 meters away is the beach.

Rates are good, about RM90 per night. Each room comes with 2 single beds, a small TV, a cupboard and more importantly, a clean and spacious bathroom with hot water.

  • Liked — Very clean!
  • Disliked — Nothing to complain about ..... maybe it lacks a nice little pool.

We all 2 adults 2 children stayed at Langkawi 1 night. After searching for many hotels, we decided to have this chalet in Tropical Resort which is located not far from Pantai Cenang. As the rate is cheaper ( only RM90 ) but we could not have alcohol in chalet, so we got this chalet that night. My husband felt something wrong he said : "seem like nobody stay in this resort!"after that, he said :"maybe will have chalet guest at night"So after bringing my children go swimming at PAntai Cenang, we back to the hotel at 8p.m. The sky is dark but why only our chalet is stay by us, others chalet totally nobody stay at all!! i told my husband i so scares! Its seemed like very horrible...at night we did not switch off the light in our sleep.The next morning, we all faster wake up early at 7 o'clock, after taking the bath, we quickly returned the chalet key back to the resort and went for our trip of Lankawi island!! So, after thinking back, i feel very scared and tell my husband not to stay at this kind of chalet again!
