Malibest Resort
Ranked #30 of 108 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed 13 July 2014

I stayed one night at Malibest Resort Standard Brick Room.

Overall, I am satisfied with the facilities at the Resort.

The room are well-maintained and clean. Noted that the floor have tilings so you won't have to deal with squeaky wood planks or even musty carpet smell. Pantai Chenang is just across the road from the rooms. Ample parking space, you can just park your vehicle right in front of your room. Wifi are available in the room however do take note that the speed is pretty slow. Bathroom comes with a heater and shampoos and soaps are provided. There are hanging rack in the bathroom as well. Noise level are low even though the place is skirted by restaurants. However, I am not sure whether the low noise level is due to the reason it was during the fasting month of the Muslims.

Convenient stores, travel agents, bars, restaurants and shops are all within walking distance from Malibest Resort.

Overall, I will come back and stay here again as it is a well maintained place.

We didn't stay in the hotel but we did go a couple of times to its Indian restaurant that for some reason isn't listed here.
Very good Indian, really recommend the mutton chettinad and the parathas. The servings are relatively huge and considering it's Langkawi are quite good value. One rice easily serves 2.

This resort is located right in the heard of the happening part of Langkawi. The rooms are right on the beach and the views from the room are goo. However, do not expect anything more. There are no bell boys and you have to pick up your luggage on your own. There are 2-3 housekeeping ladies who would clean the room a a time convenient to them. The showers in most rooms have extremely low pressure and there are no other means.

There is an Indian restaurant in the resort (not a part of resort) and there are roadside night bars right infront of resort. We had booked Super Deluxe Wooden beach front room and the last one in the row (cant remember the name of room) has best view since window is twice the size of other super deluxe rooms. However, you have to keep the curtains closed most of time since anybody can see through. The tree house has more privacy than rooms since you can keep your window open all day and night and nobody can peep in.

I'd suggest hiring a bike (wearing helmet is utmost compulsory for both the rider and the pillion or else you will invite trouble) and go to 4 seasons resort, cable car (there are more good beaches enroute to cable car), berjaya resort. Petrol is dirt cheap (2 MYR/ Ltr). And so is duty free shopping.

Room Tip: Super deluxe wooden beach front are in front row so has best views, specially the last one. However...

with the coupon code think i got a really good price for the room.
the plus: value for money, walking distance to the beach, lots of restaurants and bars nearby, close to the airport, the drivers know this place and the beach is lovely. this hotel is situated next to a few 4 or even 5 * hotels but they share the same beach!

the minus: terrible hotel towels, i got one with name of a yoga center on it so i suspected that it's 2nd hand stuff! wifi is not stable and the staff's service is slow.

would recommend it if u're looking for a cheap hotel.

We stayed in a Deluxe wooden for 8 nights. the deluxe part depends on what you are used too.
becareful what you book, the extra bed you ask for is a mattress about 2 inches thick not a bed. The staff are very helpful and quick to responded to any problems.

the Hut was basic but clean not a lot of storage space but did have aircon :-).

All in all we had a great time here. if you are looking for somewhere to relax and chill. then this is the place. The Malaysian people are lovely.

I book brick standard for 4 per pax at Nato Room at Malibest Resort. Overall, the room is quite ok but the toilet flush is broken when we get there but the maintenance is fast when we make a report. The room quite sandy even there are room services. I don't now why because we are not in the room for the whole day. Maybe because the environment. But overall Malibest is ok for non-family with kids.

Room Tip: Choose room at beach area. More worth it if you want staying in Malibest.
