“Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I stayed here sometime back - mid 2012 - but neglected to add review.

Was my second visit - 2nd was good as 1st.

This place is bit of hidden gem IMO - staff were lovely enough to have left welcome gift upon my return.

What it isn't - it's not really 'resort' least in western sense of resort - nor does it have pool. It's more boutique stay - staff are lovely - free wifi in reception area.

It's got lovely staff - quiet little area where people tend to swim.

Would definitely look at staying here again on future visit.

Room Tip: There's nice Indian restaurant next door - on beach side - or you can walk other direction to Li...

Excellent hotel in a quiet area of Langkawi. The service from the hotel staff was up there with the best on the whole holiday. Right on the beach with access to jet skis only 5 mins away.

Meal at the Sunset Restaurant (5 mins drive away -delivered in a hotel car for free) was brilliant and the hotel did go all out to give us that Xmas feeling (we stayed 24th to 27th December).

Excellent value as well. Was a good 30mins drive from the port, but it wasn't too pricey as the taxi's are set at a value.

Stayed from 6th Feb - 8th Feb 2013 for Family room. The room was spacious and the room cleanliness was better than expected. Most the staff from local and middle aged ladies, very friendly staff. The room was located just next to the main road of Pantai Cenang but once you enter the resort main entrance you can feel that you are in the gardens. The garden are well kept. The room was sound proof that you can't hear people from next door or outside. Besides that, the breakfast location was great. Although just a simple breakfast but it really exciting because located near the beach. You can have your breakfast while hearing the wave and very peacefull wind from the beach. I would recommend this place to my friends and definitely I will come back to Sunset.

I couldn't fault my stay here, wonderful service from the very friendly and helpful staff, always somebody on reception to assist. Eating breakfast in the beach-side seating area hearing the waves and having the sun shining through, perfect way to start any day! I would say it is a bonus that the place has no room WiFi (even in reception the signal isn't great...) which simply means you have completely escape from the rigours and stresses of home. I will be gutted if I never get the chance to stay here again, and would recommend to anyone. Value for money here is hard to beat on the island.

The bungalows are hidden in a nice garden-like alley, very nicely arranged. Unfortunately not a good maintenance of the rooms. No WiFi provided in the rooms for those who still want to stay in touch with home, although it might be a good way to stay hidden from the outside world together with the little geckoes on the walls :) The service is not worthy the rates per night, but the alley is worth seeing.

The location of Sunset Beach Resort is just perfect, it is a couple of minutes walk from Underwater World, McDonalds, Duty Free Shopping Malls, Money Changers, Rent a cars and several restaurants. Not to mention the beach is just 30 seconds walk from your room, where you can also enjoy para sailing, boat ride to the nearby islands, etc. Location wise this is better than most other famous places. And it is very close to the airport as well.

The breakfast room is right at the beach so you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach, the cool breeze and warm sunlight while having your breakfast. The water melons were really delicious !

The staff was very friendly and understanding, the service was fair and the resort itself is beautiful. A lot of plants, which add to the beauty of this place, we felt just like home!

This place offers a very good value for money, it may not be as luxurious as some of the other 5 start resorts but the above mentioned qualities makes it totally worth while.

If we ever happen to go back to Langkawi, we would definitely choose this place to stay!

Beautiful family run small hotel in a tropical garden set just off the quiet beach of Pantai Tengah. We have been coming here for the month of January for many years. I have worked in the worldwide travel industry for 30 years. This place is a treasured find.....we keep coming back because after a couple of days you are already relaxed! Not pretentious, just a clean, comfortable place to stay with the friendliest staff ever.....they will make sure your holiday is perfect. Rooms are air conditioned and safe. The only meal served is breakfast in a lovely airy room overlooking the sea but there are plenty of places to eat locally for lunch and dinner. The beach is safe and beautiful. Sometimes there is parasailing and jet skis passing but mostly it is so quiet and the scenery is superb. Don't be put off by the drive along Pantai Cenang road which is now like the strip at Las Vegas! Once you walk through the hotel gardens....you will find all is peaceful and calm.
In the evening if you turn left on leaving the hotel there are plenty of places to shop and eat. Take my tip, turn right and follow the road along Pantai Tengah. Much quieter and fantastic places to eat like Sun Cafe and Maya's restaurant!
Enjoy your stay but book early!
