This place is not a your typical hotel. It is more of a villa/boutique resort that offers unique, quirky and luxurious experience at the same time. I stayed at Penang house 1 for 3D2N and I must say, it was one of the best experience ever! I got it cheap from last minute deal through Agoda.com. Our villa (Penang house1) consist of 2 rooms (1 king sized bed + 1 single bed), living room, 2 bathrooms (1 with shower area + another with wooden bathtub).
Location : walking distance (15min walk) to the hot-spots area of Pantai Cenang. Gotta try these 2 amazing restaurants - Red Tomato (fantastic breakfast!) and Yellow Cafe.
The villa is very spacious. I had good night sleep thanks to the comfortable bed and functional a/c (Langkawi is extremely hot and humid!). Our breakfast was prepared the night before and it was put in our fridge (bread, yogurt, tropical fruit, cakes, fruit juice etc). Fridge, toaster, kettle, coffee, tea, flat screen tv, DVD player, pool, towels, sarong, toiletries can be found in this villa. Wifi speed was OK. The villa is an old, rustic house but the stylish interior decor put a luxurious feeling to it. I've found our 'tropical survival kit' on our shelves (consisted of insect repellent, flashlight, sarong etc)
But what makes this villa an amazing place is the top notch services received from the staffs. The moment we stepped our foot into this villa, we immediately felt like we were at home. Friendly smiles can be seen everywhere, from the staffs to their guests. It was just so lovely. This place is suitable for everyone except those who allergic to cats/dogs as they run a small animal shelter nearby. Cats can be seen roaming freely. Do not worry, they are all well behaved, clean and extremely cute!
We had a surprise birthday party at the villa, and things got a bit messy. However, the staffs handled the situation really well. Everyone did have a blast that night.
Cons: not suitable for those who allergic to animals. The food are a bit expensive. Walls are thin. Wi fi speed can be improved.
In conclusion, I had a fantaboulous stay in Temple Tree. I will definitely come back again. But next time will choose a different type of house. I heard a new "Ipoh" house will be built soon. Yeayyy,..
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Though classified as B&B/Inn, Temple Tree is actually more of a boutique resort of many cultures, an eclectic mix of heritage chic...Antique buildings of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin, make up this 8 villa hotel, with 8 rooms & 6 suites now open. Each building has, over its 70-110 year old history, created its own heart and soul. Hopefully we have given due respect to each of these family homes with the restoration process. These houses are now the continuing the story of people who live in them, our guests. ... more less
