“Very nice and individual place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Even though the resort is not next to the beach and close to the airport it is a nice and quite place to stay. The Villas are nicley done and equiped with all you need without loosing their typical malayan character. Each Villa has a house cat and there are several more around. So you should like cats if you want to stay there. The food at the restaurant is very good and every evening a sun downer with a small appatizer is offered to house guests. A good oportunity to calm down, watch the sun set and get incontact with other guests if you like. We had an evening flight out and even though our Villa was booked again we were allowed to stay at another Villa for that day, so we could enjoy the day and have a shower before leaving in the evening.

This intimate resort consists of individually styled genuine Malay villas. Our villa was one of the smaller ones and the bathroom was at the back, under the stars which was fantastic.
We had our own villa cat, Skippy, who allowed us to stay for three glorious days.
As a bonus the food is excellent both at Bon Ton and the sister resort Temple Trees.

The hotel is just beautiful and fits so well with the surrounding. The location is fabulous. The rooms were very well appointed with full amenities and great bathrooms. Comfortable beds ,great design made this hotel a place to visit instead of just a place to sleep in. Needless to say it was spotless and smelled great.

Bon Ton Resort Langkawi is one of the island's most stylish, unique, sexy and intimate resorts, with eight individually styled antique Malay villas, the perfect small boutique hotel with a view of paddy fields. Nam Restaurant at Bon Ton is regarded as one of the best on the island.

Location is quite near to Cenang Beach and nect to Casa del Mar Hotel.

Stayed twice in two different villas (Yellow Orchid Villa and Blue Ginger Villa).

Although the swimming pool is not that big but suffient. Great for couple and family with kids.

The only thing is, lots of mosquitos and insects especially in the evening.

Room Tip: All villas are completed with living room, outdoor shower, bathroom. Each villa is unique.

Horrible place! never again. so many cats around..apparently is an animal shelter but does not mention that on the website. pool is dirty. cats around the kitchen. insects everywhere inside and outside. bathrooms old and rusty. no phone. dirty pond next to what's called " Villas" which is a source of many strange insects. I hated it so much. I would give it 2/10 and that's stretching it. only good thing is location.

We stayed here for 4 nights in the yellow orchid villa during March. Initially a bit sceptic as it is called a resort but the experience is very personal as there are not many villas. The staff is extremely helpful and go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. They even arranged for me to watch a game of rugby next door at temple tree in the private tv room!Their recommended activities and restaurants were spot on and they helped booking all of these and taxis within minutes. Complimentary cocktails with sunset is a great way to relax or mix with other guests while enjoying the view.
It is about a 15min walk to cenang beach, but taxis are cheap enough not to walk in the heat.
Only downside was the planes doing their training runs before the air show and if you don't like cats as there are quite a few around but did not bother us. They do a good job with the cat and dog sanctuary next door as well.

One of my favorite getaways in the world I have stayed here many times

For beautiful surroundings nice people and out of the ordinary very comfortable lodging this is the place. Gorgeous each one with its individual character and style old malay houses surround a infinity pool and cosy restaurant with great food and even better staff

Do stay here if;
-You like very comfortable but different types of stays and are not looking for a cream and white box like five star hotel

-You love animals (remember this is an animal sanctuary and thanks to the hotel sponsored refuge not far from the grounds they take care of spaying and caring for lots of wonderful cats which you can either participate in our not)

-You enjoy quality but relaxed surroundings and cool things like outdoor showers, gorgeous views and quiet

-You are indeed looking for a different type of getaway and enjoy having the luxury of hand picked gorgeous old houses lovingly decorated and each one so very different

A great place for a quiet getaway, with children or to put on your socially responsible shoes and go take a dog for a walk (or not)

I love it here and am so happy to see that quality and beauty can also be shared with social responsibility caring and good things

Room Tip: If you are not fond of cats this is not a good option for you
