It ruined what was a perfect trip to Malaysia. The owner (Nelson) was highly unprofessional, unorganized and rude. The Amara Motel is a piece of trash for the money they charge. They shut the premises at Amara Guesthouse at 11pm with absolutely noone to reach out to for the keys, we ended up sleeping in the lobby all night cause no staff (or whatever they were) could reach Nelson. We ended up walking between the Guesthouse and the Lodge in the night to arrange for accommodation. Imagine being on a holiday in Langkawi and being made to walk on dark and deserted roads at 1 in the night.
Nelson, on top of that threw attitude at the guests. Amara Motel charged us 220 Ringgit for a night in a room that took more than 6 hours to cool (WITH NO FAN)... Why would I pay so much to live in room that resembled a prison. The Wi-Fi never worked outside of the lobby.. Inspite of this, he argued that he was doing us a favour.
You wanna ruin your holiday, go stay at the Amara Guesthouse & Motel. Be ready to be fleeced by the owner cause he rarely does provide any confirmation of bookings on mail. He assured us of VIP passes for the Aero show (LIMA) but never showed up when we asked for them. By then we had realized he is all talk and no show. Piece of crap....
