The first question one might end up asking at Sheraton Langkawi beach resort is "where on earth is the beach?" The hotel has 2 tiny little patches of sand - one near the pool and one near a restaurant called the Captain's grill. But by no stretch of the imagination, can they even compare to the beaches one comes to expect from a first class beach resort.
On the positive side, the service is excellent and the staff are very friendly and eager to help.
The ambience is quite quaint - rooms are designed as log cabins in the middle of a hilly jungle like terrain. One can also feel close to nature and see monkeys, interesting species of birds etc. However because of the meandering paths/ roads and the hilly forest terrain, it is quite easy to get lost when one is going to the lobby, especially after dark. So one needs to call for a buggy or golf cart when one wants to go to the lobby/ restaurants. Makes me wonder how much gas is wasted each day by the hotel this way!!!
The hotel is very close to the airport but the most popular beach, Pantai Cenang is not very close and is a 24 ringgit taxi ride away. Also there is no market, restaurants nearby so unless you are willing to call for a cab and go out, you are very much stuck in the hotel every evening.
