Malibest Resort
Ranked #31 of 105 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We had 2 rooms during a 5 night stay both good, solid bungalows with a clear view of the sea. We moved to the only villa for a more luxurious experience and it was great with large sitting room located right on the beach which is perfect.

The beach itself is nice but lots of gangs of holiday makers having BBQ and leaving their rubbish - dust guesting! Each evening after being out I had to clear off gangs of people congregating outside the room and generally being noisy. This is ever email best security needs to improve as they weren't evening staying at the hotel.

Great during the day but again people see the villa bad stand outside taking pictures. One morning I had to clear a lad from my sunbed who was sat on my towel. If you can manage this and be firm then you'll have a great time if not the not you'll need one of the more up market beach resorts. Hotel still rough around the edges, Indian restaurant at the front and building work going on. Also need to pay for sun beds so it's a 3 from 5 for me for the 85$ a night room.

Stayed: September 2013, travelled as a couple

Stayed here with my wife for a few days and would recommend the resort to anybody who's gonna visit this island. The wooden villa is just breathtaking and spacious. The service is extremely friendly and helpful and the management of the hotel works 24 hours around the clock to ensure the comfort of their guests.

We would recommend this hotel to any couple. The hotel offers a wide range of activities, the private beach offers you the needed privacy and view you would expect from this island.

Will definitely return on our next trip to Langkawi!

We were 5 couples, looking for a hotel for a long weekend in Langkawi. Found Malibest which had available rooms for our dates.
This is NOT a luxury hotel, but a hotel that gives you the basics for sleeping and getting clean, on the beach, with a wonderful view to the sunset.
Make sure you get a beach-front room, they are lightyears better than the others.
Indian restaurant in reception area served very good food, but for breakfast you have to go elsewhere

Room Tip: The beach is what makes this hotel special. Go for a beachfront room

I stay in with my 2 kids and wife. Staff front desk are not helpful when we want to know more information about attraction place in this island. One thing can sure of is that these staffs at the front desk would just keep on pursuing you to join their package tour by hard-selling and this was very irritating and non-pro at all !!

Overall, beachfront view is average only and not so amazed.... but the room is clean ..so, credit to house-keeping workers.

Room Tip: Chose only the room facing beachfront..the rest are mostly facing drains or other wall

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.

Stayed: July 2014

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...
