We stayed at a rainforest chalet, surrounded by the trees with a bit of a sea view up ahead. The experience of living so close to the rainforest is great. We stayed on our balcony until late spotting all of the big flying and crawling things around us. At some point a monkey even dropped by.
The hotel uses diesel shuttle busses to drive guests around (there is no way around it, its a large hilly territory), so it can get noisy if you live close to a busy stretch of road. Rooms are a little older than we expected. Cleanliness is average - housekeeping failed to remove huge palm and finger stains on all of the windows from previous guests and there was some hair in the bathroom. Breakfast is simply disappointing, but room service is surprisingly good. The "oriental village" part is boring, but there is a duty free shop there (Langkawi is a tax free zone), which is walking distance to the hotel.
While we are generally not fans of large resorts, Berjaya can be anything you make of it - whether its romantic walks, wildlife, dining, sunbathing etc.
We would definitely come again.
P.S. Please do get the free Dev's evening walk, you won't regret the time spent.
