“Great, relaxed, small resort!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Pentai Tengah is exactly between the posh side of Langkawi and the backpackers part. This puts it in a unique position which was great for us. We like the backpack vibe for a drink, love the luxury dinners as well.
The resort is small what makes it feeling like "home" quite fast.
Don't expect a Shangri-La, just enjoy the vibe and use the euro's you save by not staying at a Shangri-La to do cool stuff. Like drink Tiger beer...

This resort is located right by a calm part of the beach - really lovely! Having breakfast while watching the ocean is quite a way to start the day! Our room (Sunset III) was very basic and lacked some features, like a bed light for example. It was overall perfectly fine though. Staff at the front desk were helpful and knowledgeable about services in the area. Rating borders on a four.

Sunset Beach Resort is in a great location in Pentai Tengah, close to the beach, shops and good restaurants. Rooms were basic, but comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast and also massage on the beach were great. Gardens were beautiful. We were lucky enough to have wifi in our room,being close to the reception area. The only negative was the noisy air conditioner. Can recommend Sunset Beach to friends, and would love to come back again.

We stayed at the Sunset Beach Hotel in Jan 13 and really couldn't fault the hotel for the money.

Okay it's not exactly luxury and the rooms had a bit of an old caravan feel to them, but for what you pay you can't expect the Ritz on Langkawi.

AC worked great, gardens are pretty & well kept and the ladies at reception are very helpful & friendly... as was the resident cat Lucy too :-)

We only stayed for a couple of nights on our way to & from Koh Lipe, but it made a perfect stopover spot for us.

As others have said, the beach outside is very nice & although breakfast is nothing amazing it's good enough & beside there are plenty of other eating options in the area.

The beachside bar / restaurant next door was really good & the food top notch. Very nice place to spend the evening dining on the beach with a cold beer :)

Short walk to all the shops, restaurants & there is a moped hire place 5 mins walk down the road which was good value... £8 got us a moped for the day & £1 to fill it up, which took us all over the island. Would recommend doing over organised trips as not only is it cheaper, but It also gives more freedom and the roads are pretty quiet there so it's not a stressful experience.

All in all a very good hotel for your money, so long as you're not expecting luxury - we would definitely stay again that's for sure!

Stayed for 3 days, in this beautiful tropical garden resort, right on the beach, almost private. We only got sunset 3 rooms available while booking and were little skeptical about the room size but were pleased to see the actual size, its good enough for a couple even with a kid to stay comfortably. Only problem (which can be a concern for many) was that the resort being like a forest has lizards. We lived with one in our room for whole night and manged to shoo it off only in morning. They do not have much variety for breakfast but anyways we being eggiterians could not have expected much. Its convenient to rent a bike to explore the city, we took it from the store next to the resort from a sweet and helpful lady names Ina. We got it for RM 25 per day, didn't checked rate at any other place. Due to Ramadan we could not find any open fuel station in the evening and our fuel got over, she was helpful enough to get fuel for us in a container even after closing her shop. There is a beach side restaurant named Oasis next to the resort which serves decent food (though a little expensive). Beach is a bit rocky and can hurt so be little careful and find a smooth patch. Water sports available nearby. Cenang beach, underwater world and other shops are at walking distance.

The best place to have a rest. Value for money. Clean, kind and natural. Best view to sea, beach and sunset. Avarage guests are young couples of 30 - 35years with 1 or 2 childeren. I was worry about conditions and service after reservation, but now I realise that fond a good place to have a real relaxing rest.

Husband and I stayed here in January and it was a real pleasure. Driving through the no-frills village I didn't know what to expect, but once we hit the relaxing and calming lobby I was set at ease. Our cabin room was well sized, bed was comfy and air con a plus. Bathroom simple and our shower pressure wasn't strong but they fixed it when asked. Rooms are kept clean and the staff are so, so lovely and friendly. Every interaction was great.
Hotel is right on the beach so perfect for a morning or all day swim. The best bit? The breakfast! Simple but so, so good - try the traditional noodle dish, its yum!
This place is a great alternative to an impersonal big hotel, and is within walking distance to some great food and places to visit. They also help arrange tours and day trips too. Well worth it!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet - I do suggest getting up early to reserve a sunbed for the day though!
