“Staying for an extra week”
Reviewed 30 November 2012

The rooms are about 5 min walk to the beach, though being situated in the centre of Pantai Chenang that isn't a bad thing. It is quiet and the room is good value for money. The food at the restaurant is good with breakfast being served till 12 noon. I would like to make special comment about the assistance the manager Jai has given me with issues with my travel documents. I'll certainly stay again as I have been to Langkawi 10 times and living in Singapore means a 1 1/2 hour flight with Air Asia to get here.

a) To change input in Google Map to avoid future disappointment. Currently in Google Map the hotel is situated at the left side of Pantai Cenang instead the real hotel is on the right side wich far from the sea.
b) The room is quite nice but the walking distance from receptionist to the room is quite far.
c) Hotel to provide a transportation such as bicycle from receptionist to room upon the stay.
d) To get the street light switch on during night.

We are given Jelita room with 2 queen beds. The beach is a bit away but a walking distance. We purposely rented an accommodation away from the beach to avoid the hustle & bustle. So that we can have a good night sleep after a day tour in Langkawi. The breakfast that comes with the room was soo marvelous especially nasi lemak, french toast & house sandwiches to name a few. Island hopping is a must while you are in Langkawi. Definitely will come here again & ask for Anggun room instead.

We stayed at Rasa Eksotika (RE) for three nights. Upon arrival we were led up grotty path away from the beach. Tucked away were three chalets. They looked pretty grim. The interior on first inspection was ok, there are some nice ornaments and the presentation was quite good. The room is painted in a dark colour with no proper window. This lack of light hides a lot of shabbyness. The lightshade was mouldy and dirty and veneer was peeling off all over the place. At night there is a lot of insect noise. There was a large gap at the bottom of our door so we had to put a towel down to stop the insects coming in. A few made it anyway. Breakfast was included and it was atrocious. You order off a menu and the staff bring you something different. This happened so many times. Even when you get what you order it is flavourless and small. The only good things I can say is that the owner is quite friendly and the wifi is very good. All in all I could not recommend RE to anyone.

This is a very beautiful place! Just beautiful. Good decoration and good add ons but you can't sleep as the mattresses are ruined and you don't understand it till you go to bed. As you put your weight on the bed it starts going down and you understand that you have made a big mistake by just looking at this beautiful place and not trying the mattress.
We just were counting the seconds till morning and early when the fist daylight appeared we jumped out of this hotel.

Hi All,

A few point to note about this home type accommodation:

1) Location: Pantai Cenang- about 150m-200m walk from the main road, near to beach
2) The room itself is so so only, nothing great, items in the room looks old and thrashed out.
3) Not much security at front door, just a normal plank wood and a key to open, so cant keep anything valuable inside.
4) Bathroom look so old.
5) Has an old CRT tv and not LCD, limited tv channel.
6) Ok for cheap stay
7) Has a ceiling fan, aircond. heater in the bathroom and a fridge.

Will not stay here again as the surrounding and rooms were just not up to a level of comfort besides the basic amenities given in the room unless you are up to a village style living...:)

Thank you

Room Tip: No suggestion, avoid if have better budget

When we arrived at Rasa everything seemed ok till we were lead 20/30 meters down a path behind the reception. Being led past someone's house daubed in grafitti we were lead to our room which seemed very isolated opposite an untidy area of untidy land. On entering the room seemed nicely decorated but there were stains on the bed, the room smelled foisty, and the bathroom was in a terrible condition despite the fact that other people had complained about the state of it in previous trip advisor reviews of this room (Chantek). This place maybe ok for travellers on a budget but at the price they are charging it maybe too expensive for that market. We sought out another hotel and moved just hours after checking in, the sunset beach resort was a little extra but I wish I'd spent just that bit more to begin with to avoid this hastle and losing 4 nights accommodation!

Room Tip: Pick a room in another hotel!!
