Holiday Villa Beach Resort & Spa Langkawi
Ranked #22 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed 29 November 2013

I had mixed feelings of this hotel when I arrived, it seemed to have been given over to the Malaysian military. As others have noted, this hotel needs some updating as its slightly jaded. But this does seem to be happening, the older pool is being replaced with a newer infinity model, and it also looks like the rooms will probably get the much needed makeover that they deserve. The beach is probably the best one on this stretch as it isn't as steep as further north. There are plenty of small restaurants and bars on the strip behind the hotel, all within 10 mins walk. Best to get a cab for the next resort or any of the other highlights mentioned in these pages. One note is that the staff are very, very helpful, and their English is of a high quality, unlike some resorts I have visited recently, they even ticked me off, very charmingly, when I over tipped them, not a thing that ever has happened before, and gives a good insight into the whole Langkawi ethos. When I had to go back to KL I left with a lot better feelings for this hotel than I had when I arrived.

it was hard to give this hotel an overall rating for several reasons,we initially booked a superior room and on arrival were given room 001 and was directed to the room which was the northern most room in the north wing of the hotel,the room itself was clean but very very dated and had a view of what i could only describe as a well kept but minimalist garden nowhere near the pool and no sea view.We walked back to the reception and requested a change of rooms to a higher category and the next day we moved into a deluxe premium room which was quite nice,overlooking the pool and much more modern,another issue was the building works for the new infinity pool that were scheduled to finnish at the end of october but were still noisily continuing in mid november and are now hopefully scheduled to finnish at the end of december,i do realize that to maintain and upgrade a hotel you do need to use such things as jack hammers and hammer drills but if i had known the work was still ongoing i would certainly have chosen a different hotel.In closing my recommendation would be if you are contemplating this hotel i would make certain that the building works are completed and also would not recommend any class of room lower than deluxe premium.Having said this the staff were in general very helpful and friendly

Room Tip: if breakfast is not included in your room price simply walk across the road to cactus restaurant,ver...

Nice location with a lot of restaurants and shops. The Aquarium and city shopping center is a 20-30 min walk. It has wonderful white sand beach. Good for swimming and sun relaxation enjoying the warm sun in a sunny day. water sport like Jet ski, Banana, Parachute are available with reasonable prize. Beach has a wonderful view of a nearby island and a lot of high green mountains. Very romantic sunset view. It also had a swimming pool and another one under construction. Spa and massage service available in health club, but I slept while massaging so I cannot judge it. Breakfast was not included and it cost 49R which is a rib off. There were no iron in the room ( but they have an iron room) and the furniture were old . the bed was not as requested . it was two twin beds adjacent to each other so It was not comfortable to me hugging my wife if you know what I mean. Finally It was not as expecting from a 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Go for the Primum room in the second floor, it is better in every thing than the deluxe room with 20...

stayed in this hotel for two nights along with my wife. The hotel compound is sprawling and has amenities like swimming pool, tennis court etc. Rooms are decent and provide good value for money. Ours was a budget trip and we got everything that we desired.

The hotel also has a private beach (or a beach accessible from the hotel itself) and it is very beautiful during sunset. It also has a small bar closeby so if you want to order some drinks, you can do it. The pool is quite large with a nice jacuzzi.

The restaurant in the hotel is quite large and has a very good menu. We loved the food and the dessert options. There is an Indian restaurant just outside the hotel, which again was a pleasant surprise. The hotel also arranges island tours, fishing trips etc. which was helpful.

Overall, we had a very good experience.

stayed as a couple just for one night, was meant to be 2 but flight changes changed that. Check in was good and offered early check in when we were just requesting our bags be stored as it was only about 11am. pool is nice (shame the pool bar was closed) and will be even better when the new pool is finished (should be by now) Location is good, far enough out of town to be nice and quite but close enough for adventures for food and shopping, this also makes the beach nice and private, swimming at the beach is a little confusing as one sigh says do not swim and another says what to do if stung....
Buffet breakfast was ok, nothing spectacular...but the seems the normal for Langkawi and it might just be the lack of bacon making me write this.
Staff were very friendly, the English was not as good as another hotel we stayed but was sufficient.

Room Tip: we had a deluxe room but our travel buddies had the basic room and theirs seemed better except it di...

I travelled to langkawi for the first time in August 2013 and was fortunate to have the pleasure of staying at this hotel. Arrived at 2pm rooms were ready (6 in group). Rooms were great on first floor overlooking the pool. Went out for dinner and staff were helpful in recommendions. Breakfast was great and restaurant was clean and staff helpful. We did our daily tours and upon our return found the bar near receipt ion to be great, beer was cold and room air conditioned, staff happy and we enjoyed our selfs.
All in all a great hotel and excellent staff

Room Tip: Go the extra and get a premium room.

This hotel is magnificently kept in the lobby, restaurants, gardens, beach and pool areas. The staff are pleasant and helpful and overall this is a wonderful hotel that I would gladly stay at again however the rooms do need attention. There are no king size beds in any of the rooms as far as I am aware and each room needs a full makeover, they are very dated and little smelly because of the humidity. Complimentary tea and coffee are only available once and replacements cost 2 ringgit, there is no free wifi but is charged in blocks of 30 minute, 60 minute and 24 hours. There are two types of room view, pool or lagoon, we had the lagoon view and found it lovely to sit on the balcony at night. The food in the restaurant is average but a little too expensive, cactus restaurant across the road is a much better option. In saying all this, if you look past the rooms, which you are just using for sleep, the beach is fantastic complete with beach bar, the pool is huge and when the infinity pool is complete you won't even need the beach. In my opinion the money being spent on the pool would have been better spent on room upgrades and then this hotel would be 4 1/2 stars.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st or 2nd floor are the better option
