“A nice, modern, no frills hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

Design-wise, Fave is one of the nicer ones on the Cenang/Tengah area. It might not be right on the beach but that was compensated by the gorgeous view of the countryside from the pool area. You can just sit by the pool all day and just enjoy the peace and quiet. It takes a 5-minute stroll to get to Tengah Beach and add another 10 if you want to go Cenang.

The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. The rooms were a bit small, but being a new hotel, everything was functioning well and kept really clean. There was also free wi-fi Internet and the signal strength was not bad.

The room was nicely decorated with flat screen TV and safe but no closet. Just a horizontal bar with hangers.

The downside about the room is that it didn't have any mini-bars or refrigerators. If you ask me, I would rather sacrifice the TV and have the fridge instead.

The food was OK. Maybe it was the Labour Day weekend but the staff seemed to be having a lot of trouble in keeping up with the guests at the breakfast buffet. It took a long time for the food to be replenished and guests had to queue for a long time at the egg-station.

Other than that, I would rate Fave quite highly considering where it is priced at. Having been to Langkawi so many times before, it is a quite refreshing change to the big dull properties like Meritus or Holiday Villa nearby.

We (gay couple, 36) stayed 2 nights nd had a nice stay. The hotel is the only western style hotel that doesn't cost the earth in Cenang. The hotel is very new so the rooms were very clean and comfortable- excellent beds, a/c and shower. The outdoor area with swimming pool is great with a backdrop of the jungle forest. The free breakfast was a buffet of both western and asian foods with an omlette cooked to order.
The staff are friendly and always make you feel welcome. We enjoyed our stay and would go back. Some reviews say it is a walk to the beach, it is only 5-10 minutes and away from the grotty main road of Cenang. Finally Cenang as a lot of awful (and I mean awful) accomodation and lots of upmarket resorts with not much in the middle- the Fave Hotel meets that gap.
A few tips for Cenang, Babylon bar is wonderful (buy from 10.30ish), Tomato for great cheap Indian food and cheap beer in the duty free shops next to the aquarium. And price compare for trips and water sports as same being sold for different prices.

Room Tip: Back rooms face the nice jungle forest

New hotel only 3 months old. Yes it's about 400 meters from the beach but it's not a bad walk. Breakfast is basic (eggs, hash browns, Asian, beans, and the usual unedible Asia hotdog sausage) but its cooked well. Fruit and cereal options too. Coffee is ok. Rooms are new, clean, good wifi, maybe business style. Pool is shallow, you can breast stroke but not crawl but still good for lazing around in (towels and showers by the pool). Staff helpful and friendly.

We stayed for three nights in April and found this hotel to be a real gem. The staff were friendly and could not do enough to help us. The rooms were very comfortable with plenty of room to move around. The rooms were cleaned daily and to a high standard. The pool was also good, a nice area to sit by but also long enough to get some exercise. The Internet connection was fast and reliable. There a good choice of breakfast items and staff kept replenishing the items. We ate at the hotel one evening and the food was delicious, freshly cooked and well presented. We will definitely return if we are lucky enough to return to Malaysia in the future.

We booked the Fave at the last minute at a good rate and we were very happy with our choice. Breakfast was included and was very good, including freshly squeezed orange juice, eggs made to order, good coffee and tea, along with noodles and rice and platters of fresh fruit. The ground floor area was very open and included reception, bar and restaurant and opened via large doors to the pool area. The pool overlooked an open grassed area with hills in the background - very pleasant and although it didn't effect us, the pool was quite shallow, perhaps 1.2m maximum depth. The rooms were large although they lacked storage space. A very welcome feature was a machine on each floor that supplied both chilled and hot water, for no charge. We ate at the large genuine Malaysian style restaurant next door and it was very nice - authentic, fresh (and cheap) food, along with a kitten sleeping at our feet! Directly across the road is a 7-Eleven style of shop and directly next to that is a hawker stall selling tasty takeaway treats. Within ten minutes walk are lots of other restaurants, as well as Underwater World in the town itself. Beautiful Cenang Beach is seven minute flat walk away so although hot again by the return, a quick cool off in the pool was great. I think that the location of the Fave is fine! At Cenang Beach we had a banana boat ride pulled along by a jetski (MYR80 for the whole boat) - it was great fun. Parasailing and jetski hire was also available. The staff at Fave were very friendly and tried very hard to help in any way they could. We were able to check in hours early and were actually encouraged as well as welcomed to use the pool area for hours after checkout. We would recommend the Fave Hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the pool area

We did not know what to expect when arriving in Langkawi. We were relieved to find a clean, fresh, new, stylish hotel at a great rate! What made it even better was we found out a buffet breakfast was included. The pool was fabulous, as was the friendliness and help of the staff. The food and drink menu was well priced. The hotel is a short walk to the beach and a street full of shops. Across the road is a laundry and paintball park. We were very satisfied with our stay. The room was basic but for the price good value. Bed was comfy and had a great nights sleep.

We were very happy with Fave Hotel. Clean, friendly staff, cheap cocktails during Happy Hour.
Breakfast simple but nice. Pool lovely. This is not a five star hotel. Great for two or three nights.
Will recommend the Fave to anyone.
