The Lanai seemed to portray the old colonial era with their architecture, furnishings etc. Though being old, the facility was done up to cope with the current times, albeit more could have been done. The swimming pool was just great. Breakfast sumptous. Rooms fair enough. Right at the beach so one can laze around at the beach and enjoy a... More

I doubt if any property is better located in Langkawi. Chose to stay at the property going by the representation of the hotel in its website and reviews on Tripadvisor. On reaching the hotel, I had to carry my own luggage as there was no Bell Desk. At the time of checking in, I was asked to make full payment... More

This hotel is in the process of closing down. Unfortunately we did not know this when we booked some 12 months ago. On arrival they had no booking for us. After finally getting a room, it turned out to be smelly and dirty. We asked for the stained and smelly pillows to be change, which they did on three occasions... More

Nice location and clean beach, friendly staff, good value for money. Correct breakfast. Liked the swimming pool. Public areas are really run down. Room facilities are simple. Wifi was available at the lobby area only.

It is not the 5star hotel but we did not need/want the 5*hotel. Hotel was on the beach and that was the reson why we booked it. Our room was ok > we booked twin room with a extra bed but we got the real triple room and it was nice. Value for money was excellent! Staff were very helpful... More

We had only 1 night, and most of the time we were not in the room. What I can say is, the staff is quite friendly and helpful. Room condition is acceptable for that room price. Overall, it is good. I may come back next time.

We had three nights at the Lanai over Christmas and the place is old and needs a good facelift but is perfectly fine for a stay. There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room, the breakfast was good, the pool is great and in a beautiful setting and the cafe was good and right on the beach. It... More

The hotel is connected to a nice beach and has a swimming pool which are only good things about this hotel but nothing more, breakfast is bad, room is extremely bad, most of rooms are having smelly carpet, dirty bed and very old furniture. Not recommended.
