“Weird bed combination, near to Kuah town but a chic hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

After 2 nights in Aseania, we booked a room here for a change of scenery. We prefered this place as its more modern compared to Aseania (although a bit more expensive and I was using a LivingSocial voucher)

Pros
1) Clean & Chic
Toilet is spacious in terms of shower area but the toilet might get wet. Modern interior. Smaller room compared in Aseania but felt cozier here.

2) Cable TV

3) Overlooking sea-view was breath taking :)

4) Breakfast by the sea. Selection was okay when they have local dishes served. Better than Aseania >_<

5) Lotsa parking

6) Room service food was actually cheaper than the one in Aseania. Lol. Wanted to order but didn't had the time.

Cons
1) No WIFI in room

2) No place to hang clothes outside. The balcony, we think, was not supposed to open but the screw was loose and we ended hanging our clothes there. The bathroom had a wire to hang but cloths couldnt dry in time.

3) Noisy.
As our room was the 1st room after the lift, we could hear people walking outside, especially in the morning. :(

4) We requested for a king/queen sized bed but to find out they combined 2 single bed to 1. Weird. No extra pillows.

Thank you for your review of our hotel and I would like to thank you as well for staying with us. We are now undergoing a phase by phase remodeling of our hotel rooms and we value all the comments we get from our guest.

We are surely adding WIFI to all our rooms in the near future. As for the King size bed, we only have a limited number in the hotel. I am so sorry that you were not able to get one during your visit.

Once again on behalf of all of us at the Bella Vista Waterfront, I thank you for your support and hope to see you soon.

Warm Regards from Langkawi,
Bernie Primack

Langkawi is a legendary island with interesting places to visit. No matter how many times we come to visit it, we would always feel it is worth coming again. We could go by ferry or fly to the island. This time the 4 of us flew to lsngkawi as my hubby intend to bring me n his parents to bella vista so that we could attend his best friend's wedding. The hotel has a magnificent outlook of the English Tudor Castle fronting the sea. How awesome! There are family apartment rooms but after reading the reviews and recommendations we booked for 2 deluxe rooms and it was a worthy effort because the rooms have been recently renovated. Modern and clean...with the seaview. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the pool is situated at the seafront amidst the landscaped gardens. We had a lovely time exploring the surroundings and had sumptous meals for dinner at the nearby restaurant outside the gate. The hotel breakfast buffet serves homely food as well with choices of local and western. The location is great as we could easily drive to Kuah town for shopping and sightseeing to "dataran lang" that situates a flying eagle statue to signify the island's historic name and a few other attractions there. It's also quite easy to drive to other parts of the island with a good map in hand. As always...there is so much to do while we were there. This time it is uniquely memorable when we attended the classic traditional wedding were the locals cooked the meal themselves and as the groom us a dignified film director, we get to meet some popular filmstars as well. The beautiful part is when we had a chance to also visit mami's relative whom has resided there with his wife and kids. He showed us his collection of old black n white photos and I get to see the pictures of many elderly relatives whom I never get the chance to meet as well as the ones during their younger days. We also had a lovely time hunting fot gamat products, enjoying the oriental village attractions, from chenang beach and tanjung Rhu's coconut drinks to the hunt for the best "langkawi laksa" a local dish everyone must try. The one we found on the way back to the airport was awesome. Other place could be the stalls you encounter along the road near the paddy field. Very authentic taste of the northern malaysian rice noodle in thick fish gravy...healthy style cooking with fresh ingredients. We didn't have time to visit the underwaterworld, kota mahsuri and other great places or to try out the spa in the hotel as time is short for a 3days 2 nites visit that has a special purpose of rejoicing moments of "silaturrahim" with family and friends. Before we knew it, it's already time to fly home. That longing feeling for Langkawi will call us back for more visits next time. We love to try out other residents it could offer on other oarts of the island for different experiences. Bella vista is uniquely designed for family stays as well as business travellers. Till then...Asta la vista...memorable bella vista.

Dear Sir, I am sorry that you were not satisfied with your stay at the Bella Vista Waterfront. I would assume that you were staying at our Superior room during your stay. Unfortunately these rooms have not been renovated yet, but we do have plans to remodel them in the near future.

In our efforts to conserve energy, we are using solar to power our hot water, therefore it does take some time to heat up.

I do hope that you give us another try when you are next in Langkawi and I would suggest that you stay in our Deluxe or Studio rooms as they have been newly renovated. We do take your comments seriously and I will personally look into it.

Warm Regards from Langkawi,
Bernie Primack

Thank you so much for reviewing our hotel, we do take your comments seriously and will try our best to improve our service.

The Bella Vista Waterfront is separated into 2 blocks, the hotel block and the Service Suites block. The food served at the Bella Vista is strictly all Halal. We are serving an improved breakfast which has a blend of both local and international dishes. We do serve sausages every morning and an egg counter which prepares eggs to your choice.

WIFI is only available in the lobby and the restaurant for now but we are in midst of installing WIFI to all rooms as well.

Hope you give us another chance when you are next in Langkawi.

It is very old hotel (british style) and many rooms are not in good shape. The renovation work is going on, hope they will complete by may 2013, but for a while prefer studio apartment as they are newly done. It is very near to main market and has many malls and India restaurant in proximity. Service is not that good, but i think they will improve soon, not to forget it serves good breakfast to start your day good. Good SPA and road side eateries are at walking distance.

Room Tip: Please prefer studio apartment on the other building, as the main building is under renovation.
