“Affordable room with clean bed”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

Our trip was on budget hence, we're not here for luxury.
Location-wise, Rasa is located along Pantai Cenang, so its just 5 mins to the beach which is very convenient.
Room is clean (I'm happy so long as there's aircon and the bed is clean) and bed is very soft.
If u are a breakfast person then you might face some difficulty getting breakfast along Pantai Cenang especially if you are a early morning person also.
There's a kettle in our room but there's no coffee/tea making facilities available.
The hook for the shower-head is damage and shower room is very basic.
Overall, I'm happy with the room.
As for the receiption counter, you need some luck to see the staff around. Twice, we went to the reception counter and the staff is not around.

You dun have to worry there's no accomodation (but maybe the budget) coz there's plenty of places offering accomodation, just the price & location differs. :D

Note: Please rent a car / bike to get around the island.

We chose Rasa, because I was worried that is going to be hard to find accommodation in Langkawi. In August is not so busy here so you don't have to book in advance. We paid for Chomel room £15 include aircon. Next to us are offering room include air con, swimming pool and freezer for £14 so even better then here.

When we arrived and opened room was still untidy, so we have to wait till will be clean, you can see everywhere that people are lazy during Ramadan.

Booked 2 side by side rooms for my family trip 3 months in advance but was given 2 rooms not even at the same row (room names were stated in the confirmation). The excuse given was the fuse box wasn't working well in the smaller room and right after that, a young couple walked into the room!

The family room was spacious and nicely decorated BUT bedsheets and pillow sheets weren't clean. We got the smaller room just 2 rooms away after requesting to have it change yet the pillows smelled and the toilet wall has lizards' droppings on it.

My family and I are not being picky but this is a basic thing a hotel / guest house should maintain - cleanliness. We went back to the family room a couple of hours after check out as we left something there, the bedsheets were still not changed for the new check ins.

The good thing about the place was it's near to the beach, about 3-5 minutes walk away. Convenient shops, restaurants, shopping and tours information counters are near by too. One more good thing is we weren't charged extra for checking out 2 hours later than the normal check out time.

One last thing, there were a lot of mosquitoes roaming wildly at night. I advise people who are planning to stay there to get mosquito coil and burn it through out the night to chase the blood suckers away. I've got bitten 7 times.

Hell. The staffs are rude. Rooms are dirty. Nasi lemak they provide was tasteless. Don't go there unless you want to get mad. Room Ayu is nice but stink. We been told the room had cable tv but when we about to watch news it appeared on tv 'the card is inactive'. So what?

Overall a great stay with Rasa Eksotika! Well furnished room, with boutique hotel concept. My guess, different rooms have different concepts. It even have a mini swimming pool for the guests. Pls note that the reception, is in the cafe (along the main road).

Located 1 minute walks from the main road. 2 minutes walk to the beach. Since it's along the main tourist's belts (Pantai Cenang), there are so many shops cater to everyone needs... Btw Rasa's guests get to enjoy 10% off their bills when spent over at their cafe. The menu seems to have wide spread of dishes and it taste great too! Staff are mostly friendly.

Our peeves, free-WIFI in our room only works on the first day. Subsequent days w/o WIFI in our room, it was inconvenience as we had to use the WIFI (different network) at their cafe across the main road. Despite, informing the staff nothing was done about it. They seems unsure of the wifi signal.

Suggestions
- Please look into the wifi signal
- To install clothing hooks in the toilet
- Better manage vector control. With so many potholes all over the area, the stagnant water breed mosquitoes.

Myself and my husband stayed there in a 'Persona' room from NYE until the 12th Jan. The room was nice and clean and air con and fridge were great! The location was UNREAL! about a 60 second walk to the main shopping strip of panta cenang and 2 min walk to the beach! We went out for dinner to the Rasa rest one night and I had the most delicious Red Snapper curry I've ever had!! was really unbelievable.. the food was v high standard and very very low in price! Jai the manager was super helpful and friendly as were all the staff, they really couldn't do enough to help. We were in Langkawi for almost 2 weeks and had a good look around other hotels and places to eat and Rasa is by far the best in our opinion for location, value and comfort 5 stars!!! We cannot recommend this place enough!!
