The Lanai Beach Resort is at the end of Pantai Tengah beach in Langkawi. The rooms, while not modern, are comfortable with a number of the deluxe rooms also having private balconies. The resort is right on the beach and provides deck chairs and a beach side restaurant. It also has a terrific swimming pool suitable for the whole family. Breakfast was not spectacular but sufficient. It is within easy walking distance to a number of restaurants and a 25 minute walk will get you to shops including duty free.
We have now stopped there 3 times and will probably stay there again.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a deluxe room with a balcony.

Well booked, this resort for the last leg of my Honeymoon last year in December. I never got the time to review the place as there are no great memories from the place anyways. I did my booking through Agoda. I had to reach Langkawi from Satun through a Ferry. We missed the evening ferry, hence we had to stay back in Satun. We could only reach Langkawi the next afternoon, with an evening to spent at this property.

As soon as we reached the reception, I could realize that my expectation level was too much, especially after coming from the most hospitable place on the Earth "Thailand". The staff was unfriendly and did not even smile once while talking to us. We were already in a bad mood and then we came to know that we have got a room in the 2nd floor, and there was no one to pick our luggage and to my surprise no Lifts... So we had to carry our luggage using the stairs to the second floor.. That was it....

Entered the room and it was as small as a room in a ship... it was too small and I did not like it at all. The colors were too SAD as well. We just left the resort in 20 minutes and went sight seeing by hiring a bike... The bike guy next door is another rude person I have met on my trip to Malaysia... Its amazing how they claim that Malaysia is Truly Asia, while I find people to be RUDE...

We came back and decided to eat at the resort restaurant. The food was OKAY, nothing spectacular....

Overall it was a poor experience.. I would not recommend this resort at all..

The only plus point was the Pool.. It is large and good, but not properly lightened for late evenings...

Room Tip: Don't book this... but incase you have no other choice then ask them for a room at the ground fl...

Room is okay and we choose ground floor room infront of the pool for easy access to the pool. Pool is perfect and even have some shades from the building so you can still swim during the afternoon. Very quiet location and great view of the beach. Breakfast is okay and they rotate the menu with mix of local and western. Breakfast is serve until 10.30am and they replenish the food. Aircond in the room have a bit noisy sound, but it didnt bother us. Our room has another door to a verandah with table and chairs facing the garden.

Position position position. The Lanai is right on the beach at the end of Pantai Tengue, So there is only jungle on one side of the hotel. The rooms are old and a bit tired but the pool is perfect. You can be relaxed and feel comfortable moving around the hotel - all you need for a low key beach holiday. We were staying here at the end of the monsoon season. Hardly anyone here and had the pool to ourselves. The reception staff are lovely and if you take the time to talk to them, they are very helpful and friendly. Restaurants just across the road were great. Fat Mums and Cactus being our favourite.

Room Tip: There are beach bungalows available.

Rooms where not very comfortable.. Could have been better.. Service was ok.. Breakfast is ok..
Best part was location.. It is right on the beach and the hotel has a bar on the beach.. So it was great to just walk on the beach..
Overall not bad place for stay

We booked two double rooms in this hotel in June 2012. The rooms are good, but the bathrooms are not very good. The staffs are not very friendly and there's no porter to carry the luggage to the rooms. Breakfast is fine. The pool is excellent.

The excellent thing about this hotel is the beach in front. You can walk in the beach at night also. Though the hotel is in a corner of the Tengah beach area but Taxi is available.
