My first visit to Langkawi and Malibest made it better :-) Clean rooms with basic amenities and free Wifi which i had been able to connect while sitting at the beach even. One problem is, you have to drag your luggage down to the room. The lobby is along with an indian restaurant. Nearby are many indian restaurants and there... More

There are beach sport at the beach which very... More

MaliBest is right at Pantai Cenang beach. It is a budget resort with no frills. No frills means carrying your luggage to your room all by yourself. No room service. But good news is that it has free wifi. It has cottage style rooms that are simple with all basic amenities and have an earthy feel. The room we were... More

By all means, get a treehouse or beachfront room. You are footsteps from the sand and seconds from the ocean. The resort is fine as the staff were all very friendly and my room was cleaned every day without exception and I was there for 14 days. The only real negative was the WIFI. It was spotty at best and... More

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... More

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... More

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...

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... More

I stayed here before in 2011, it was a perfectly fine budget resort then but I can see in the last three years that standards have dropped and I doubt the rooms and curtains have been changed or refurbish or redecorated since I visited in 2011. Pro's The location of our room was across the road from the main reception... More
