We were 3 couples who visited this resort 2 weeks ago, and it was mind blowing.
Staff, Service, Rooms, Pool, Breakfast - Everything was fantastic.
It's actually difficult writing this review, as it's just picture perfect! Words just can't describe this amazing resort!

My stay at Seri Chenang with my family was excellent overall. The staffs were very polite, friendly, thoughtful and helpful. The resort's services were splendid as well, especially when the butlers prepared items such as towels and water for my famliy when we went for outdoor activities. The resort's location is very suitable for visitors who enjoys exclusive privacy and it is also near the water breaker which I recommend visitors to visit ( it's just a minute walk away from the resort ). We enjoyed our stay tremendously and it wouldn't have been possible without Mr Azmir, Mr Syed, Mr Azril, Ms Phaharna and the staffs of Seri Chenang. It was very kind of Mr Shambol Mustapa, the Resort Manager, for driving us to a local restaurant. For dinner.

Seri Chenang is a small self contained resort, consisting of six 'houses'. During our stay, only our house (Rumah Terengganu) was fully operational, but from what I saw of the other houses, they are almost complete and look as great as our house was.

In terms of the environment, the place has a charming Malay Kampung design - the six houses arranged around a central infinity pool (with jacuzzi) and eating area - and along with the small size of the walled grounds, this lends itself to a very 'exclusive' feel.

Myself and my fiancee were the only guests in the resort during our stay, as only the one house is currently taking guests, but I reckon that even with the six houses full, it would still have maintained a peaceful and exclusive environment.

The house we stayed in was by far and away the best "room" i have ever been in. The interior design (wooden floors, rugs etc.) and amenities are first class. Everything that you could need is there, from the coffee machine, to TV/i Pod, Deep Bath and Rain Shower. I particularly liked the balcony - meals there were so peaceful and relaxing.

I found the service in Seri Chenang to be the highlight of the trip, as some other posters have said. The staff, from the 'butlers' to the chefs and management were attentive without being overwhelming and having staff help you to plan your day every morning and giving advice etc., as well as bringing you complimentary 'high tea' and gifts makes you feel like royalty - which incidentally makes it tough to leave as well...

I won't mention any staff by name as they were all fantastic, but special thanks to Farhana who unwound our hideously tangled fishing reel (as far as i'm concerned that is definitely above and beyond the call of duty)

Will also just say that the location is better than it seems, as Chenang beach is very close, a nice small beach is within walking distance, and the breakwater (that you can often see as you fly in to Langkawi) is right on your doorstep. Great for bike rides or fishing if you enjoy (the staff will help to arrange)

My only negative was the 'European style' breakfast. Not the best - stick to the Malaysian food and you can't go wrong.

Overall, I would recommend Seri Chenang absolutely for an exclusive, first class holiday where you can just relax and let others wait on you - if that is your plan, you will love it here...

Room Tip: Our Rumah Terengganu balcony had a nice breeze.

I have been to Langkawi for countless of times ever since my childhood, and I seriously did not expect much from this trip. But Seri Chenang really turned that feeling around. We were really impressed by such a warm welcome & hospitality given by the hotel staffs, especially the butlers (Farhana, Azmil & Shah). I think this is the first time that I could even remember the names of the hotel staffs that I stayed in! Seri Chenang really made me feel like home, where everyone is like family. The resort is actually designed based on the traditional malay architecture, coupled with modern contemporary touch. There are 6 villas, with each villa signified by the state where the architecture originated (Terengganu, Kedah, Selangor, etc.). We stayed in Rumah Terengganu which is supposed to be the 'cheapest' villa, but the facilities (including an 'open' bathroom) are simply to-die-for. Your taste buds will never get disappointed as food is served round-the-clock by the hotel kitchen 'Dapur Warisan'. As a coffee freak, I find it rather difficult not to utilize the CBTL espresso machine provided in each room. The capsules are refilled daily so you can enjoy gourmet coffee or tea anytime inside your room. Another good thing is that you can actually choose to have your meal at the pool area, the open kitchen or even in your villa. The chef (En Roslan) took the efforts to get to know the guests & will even personally ask if there is any special menu which his team can prepare. If you enjoy outdoor activities, vintage bicycles are provided for each villa FOC. We really had fun riding the bikes up until the Cenang beach! On the last day of our stay, it was actually my birthday and the hotel staffs had secretly planned out a 'surprise cake' during our breakfast. It was really nice & thoughtful, and I really appreciate it.

The only complaint that I have about Seri Chenang is the fact that we could not leave the hotel as much as we should & enjoy the other nice things in Langkawi, simply because we were so 'glued' to our room! I would definitely come back for another great time at Seri Chenang, and hopefully would be able to afford Rumah Selangor (with the private pool). Seri Chenang rocks!

Room Tip: Rumah Terengganu has the nicest view of the sea, but if you prefer a more quite, intimate vacation t...

I was there with my wife for our 2nd honeymoon. All I can say is, we fall in love with everything that Seri Chenang from the first moment we arrived at the airport! We were greeted by the resort’s butler, Ms Farhana. She even handed over a bouquet of flower to my wife (and that made my wife smile throughout the journey to the resort!). Upon arrival, we were ushered straight to our villa, a very beautiful villa which we stayed for 4 days. Ms Farhana & Mr Azmil, the resort’s butlers, explained to us with every details of the villa. We were very impressed and ecstatic seeing open shower as well as a bath tub with flower petals in it, not forgetting to mention petals on bed as well (wink!). Setting of the villa was very beautiful and everything is in place, whatever u might need during vacation, they have it available. They even provide bicycles for you!

Later that day, we went around to see the whole resort. They have 6 beautiful wooden villas with different design, with pool in the middle of the resort. This is what I called as heaven of vacation, everything is set to make u feel ‘home away from home’. What we notice was, every staff at the resort has pleasant skills in making sure we are at the most comfortable stay. They were very attentive, quick and a sincere smile that they always put on. One thing I mostly remember was, a staff came to our villa handing over my mobile that I left near the pool area. The sincerity and professionalism is not doubt the best.

The food was exteremely nice and we both love Chef’s specialty Scallop with fish roe, we just cant get enough of it. In summary, the stay at Seri Chenang Resort & Spa has left us with beautiful memories and we definitely will come back again perhaps for our anniversary! Kudos to all the staff there, u guys heed at our every need above excellent! I highly recommend, in fact I have been telling all friends and families about this place! Good experiences come with a lasting smile, cheers!
