“Rainforest Chalet”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Our experience at the Berjaya is forever lodged in our memories. The service was excellent, our chalet was clean, spacious and the resort had a lot on offer, there was never a dull moment. We spent 3 nights at the Berjaya which we felt was just enough time to see and experience the resort. We will definately come back again, what a beautiful place.

Generally, we had an enjoyable time at this beach resort. Met a few nice Americans who managed to gather enough friends to make up teams to play a water ball game at the pool. By the pool bar, there was this curious monitor lizard who didn't seem to be afraid of humans. The staff couldn't decide if it was dangerous or not so we decided to keep our distance.

The beach is nice to walk on in the evenings but between noon and 4+pm it is like being under burning fire with lack of comfortable shady places to chill out. It might seem like a private beach but it is not.

As this is a duty free island, we would think that the liquor prices would reflect that but it didn't. We were happy to take a drive out to purchase our beer for a quarter of what they charged here.

The restaurant is reasonably priced and food was mostly local dishes, nothing outstanding.

We had a garden view chalet which we booked through time share and happy with that. But then, we had to view the newly renovated premium chalets and were so ready to top up to move in to those but we couldn't understand why the resort felt it justifiable to charge rm1,200/premium chalet (ROOM ONLY) during mid season. That's just way too much. In total, we would be asked to pay rm 950++/night on top of the rm150/ night we had already paid for room only. We really liked what we saw but felt the price wasn't justifiable for a 4 star resort. The manager was also quite snobbish so we didn't pursue.

We loved our dining experience at the Thai restaurant. The view was fantastic and the restaurant staff were great.

Overall, a good stay but we preferred Berjaya Tioman for their beachfront chalet with the beach at our doorstep.

Stayed here in early July with Family (Wife and 2 Girls 10 & 3). Overall the concept is very original, a Jungle type environment with numerous Chalets dotted around large grounds. Pick up from Airport is smooth and efficent. Travel around the complex is fine, but in date smelly diesel vans as per other reviews. We were lucky to be within 5 mins walk and so mostly we were able to survive without a wait.
The chalets are very very dated (even the renovated ones). Our cieling had plaster fall down by the aircon (which we reported but nobody came to clean up).
Nice being close to nature though with monkeys and other wildlife all around the Hotel.
Pool was ok, quite dirty at times but close to a nice clean beach. The setting for the hotel grounds is stunning and the 4 restaurants we visited served pretty good food and reasonable prices. Buffet nights were reasonable value too. Some staff were fantastic but others were pretty rude and unaccomodating. Agree with other reviews about Berjaya Resorts not updating their rooms though as these were very sub standard, verging on a very good 3 star or poor 4 star rather than the advertised 5 star (maybe the Premium Rooms were 5 Star but our Rainforest Family Chalet certainly wasn't) - We had a good time though so cannot really complain much although on our next visit we would definately choose somewhere else.
Travel anywhere around island via taxi is easy and quick to book via the hotel direct, this service is a plus.

We checked into the Berjaya's Langkawi resort on the 2nd day of our 5 day family vacation and it was exactly what we were looking for. The staff were very friendly, and like one of the reviewers wrote, if you give them your time and respect, you will be rewarded with a warm and friendly reception.

Our family of 10 stayed in 4 rooms, the Premiere Chalet on-land and I believe we got one of the best views in the resort. Our rooms were perched up high and looking out, we were able to see the water chalets followed by a breathtaking view of the sea.

Being in a rainforest, part of the charm was the sound which accompanied it. It does take time to get used to but it was a great change from the hustle and bustle of city life. The entire experience was great, with a clean and beautiful beach, while being not too far away from Kuah and the Chenang area (which to me is beginning to resemble Kuta, Bali)

We would definitely be going back again, hopefully very soon!

We enjoyed our stay in Berjaya very much. Even though the hotel provides Buggy services to operate on its territory it is worth just walking around to enjoy the flora and fauna found in abundance there:) Very friendly and qualified personal, Food was just great. Children spent all of the time in the pool or playing in the kids paradise, which allows parents relax and enjoy time themselves.

Stayed at the Berjaya for 7 nights! I cannot fault this resort, perfect location and I love the fact that it is set in the jungle it makes you feel like your somewhere totally different .
We stayed in a premier chalet on the water, room was immaculate, clean and well maintained.
The Thai restaurant is well priced and the food is spectacular.
The resort is quite big, but no need to worry the free shuttle service is super quick we would call and it would be there in less than two minutes.


Recommend
Nature walk, it's free for resort guests.
Hiring a car or a scooter to see the island best thing we ever did.
Go to the Thai restaurant but make sure you book.

My wife and I and our 1 year-old son just got back from 10 days at the Berjaya Langkawi resort where, overall, we had a very positive experience.

The resort is quite large and we were fortunate to be located reasonably close to the main complex where the dining, beach, and swimming pool are located. While the resort is slightly run-down in parts, overall it is pleasant enough and the rooms (chalets) were clean and tidy.

There is not a lot to do at the actual resort with activites and amenities being fairly limited.

The standout element of the resort was probably the staff who were all very friendly and accomodating.

The resort is great value and probably best suited to families with slightly older children. Those seeking a luxury experience will likely be disappointed and couples seeking a romantic getaway may also find the resort a little lacking in this regard.
