“Great first impression of Langkawi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Stayed here for 5 nights and had a very relaxed comfortable stay. The owner were helpful and friendly. The room was big enough and clean, the bed was comfortable, we struggled with sharing 1 blanket, however it did not bother us that much to ask for another. The breakfast was good, the eggs superb.
As others have said you do need transport, but this was arranged on the first day of our stay and although the car looked a bit (aged), it mostly worked and got us arround, cheeply in airconditioned comfort.
If you want a change from a beach holiday on Langkawi then this is a great place to stay.

We had an awesome stay at the box chalet. We felt very welcome right away.
Mas was very friendly and we loved just sitting down with her for a chat.
Mas and her husband were very hospitable and arranged all our tours and a car rental for us.
The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were spacious, nice and clean.
Very good value for money!

The Box chalet is very good value for money clean pleasant accommodation around a lush courtyard. The air conditioning was quiet not much natural light in the room. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfasts were good . Transport is essential for this location which is convenient for most places on the island especially the airport however car hire is cheap and the bike hire is free at the box chalet

The owner Mas & her husband are so helpful & caring. Upon our arrival, Mas called us & send me the direction of getting the chalet. But we still lost when we are trying to find the chalet... Not her problem but i think we are direction blind... =p We made many calls to Mas in order to find the ways... so sorry for that... =p

It was a quiet & lovely place where they planted many many kinds of flowers & plants around the chalet!! We loved it so much as we finally get to "run away" from busy town & enjoy the "kampung" style... =)

As a vegetarian, they purposely prepare some vegetarian fried rice for me to start up my days~

The room, toilet, & bed was cleaned. Fridge & heater are provided.

We love this place, for those would like to get rid of busy life, this would be your great choice!! By the way, you would need to rent a motorcycle or car for convenient & travelling purposes.

rooms are clean, spacious and come with aircon (it's really nice to be able to beat the heat :). the ensuite bathrooms are also clean and well ventilated. the plants on the grounds are well-maintained. it looked welcoming and was really well-kept! the breakfast in the morning is quite a spread and kak mas pays good attention to detail: she ices the pitchers of milk/juice and the mini cheeses/butter. definitely stay here and save yourself some grief from the more expensive and less personal outfits.

i spent my birthday here and i was pleasantly surprised. kak mas really made me feel special by installing a mini fridge in my room just so i could keep my birthday beer and cake cold. she also left me more cake (MOAR CAKE!), a birthday card and a small floating candle as a present. it was both unexpected and quite touching :) thank you again kak mas!

Stayed here for 6 nights over Christmas 2012. Excellent value for money and Mas and her husband are incredible hosts and were always at hand to help.
Location is great if you are wanting to explore the island, fancy a quieter environment and are happy to hire a motorcycle or take taxis and it is only 15 minutes drive from Cenang beach.
The rooms are spacious and clean with air con and a mini fridge. Free breakfast in the morning with lots of choice and the whole week was brilliant value for money. Its nice to know your money is going to a hard working family.

The Box Chalet was just what I needed for my Langkawi trip this time around. The location outside from the busy Cenang Beach or Kuah Town was perfect and peaceful. The owner and caretaker is so friendly and helpful. The thing I enjoy most while I was there is the breakfast time where I get to meet with other tourist and chat till afternoon sharing stories in our own leisure time. The room are very clean, the toilet is also very clean, they have hot shower and clean linen. Perfect.

Stayed January 2013, travelled solo
