“New rooms are pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

The Melati Tanjung is in Pantai Cenang, the most popular area if you wanna party in Langkawi. It is far from giving you any luxury facilities, but it is close to the happening area -- in fact it is right next door. The bars and restaurants close by are pretty cool, but I see how it could be a bother for those looking for peace and quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for the new rooms, as they are nicer, bigger and cleaner than the ones facing the street.

We enjoyed our stay at the Melati Tanjung Motel. It was value for money and I will definitely come back to stay again. I will recommend it to people who wants to explore the Langkawi and Cenang Beach and looking for a comfortable bed rest at night. Location was superb. There was a nearby restaurant or cafe. However, the space is on a first come first serve basis. The room was clean, the facilities were sufficient. Overall, I enjoyed my stay

This was recommended by the lonely planet & it was a poor recommendation. The room was tiny, a double bed squeezed into it& the bed was not very comfortable. We booked one night to get our bearings & moved to a motel with a bigger room for less money. This motel is on the beach but I'd rather walk for 3-5 minutes and have a nicer room.

This is a value for money motel. Right on the beach and in the middle of Pantai Cenang. Walkable distance to the large Duty Free shops and plenty of resturants and bars close by.
However there is one problem, you are very close to the "Babilon " bar. Loud music to the early hours of the morning and the party carries on the beach to whenever. If you are a party person, this is for you. The owners are very helpfull but for a long stay I would look elsewhere. Langkawi is becoming a young persons Island. Plenty of really cheap drink and loverly empty beaches to party all night.
Go now before this beautiful Island changes into something like Patong in Phuket.

Room Tip: Beach front rooms are the best, 207,208, & 209. But beware the noise at night from the Babilon B...

Very nice and helpful staff, great view on the long beach and if you do't mind some music from the nearby bar - it's your coice. Wonderful sunset from the Seaview rooms and tons of great restaurants within walking distance. But don't forget to rent a bike and explore the Island. Careful driving!!!

I thought I had made a great score when I got a beachfront room at Melati Tanjung during Chinese new year.What I didn't realize was that right next door is a popular beach bar that is very loud, making sleep almost impossible. Too bad, because the rooms are quite large and seemed to be clean, and the location on Pantai Cenang is very central. Nice people who own and work here as well. Some cons, other than the bar are the wifi in lobby area only, no breakfast, no english channels of the 3 available, and rooms are under lit. If the owner can ever get the bars license taken away, it will be much better.

Room Tip: Opt for a room as far away from the side that the beach bar is on.

The noise from the Babylon Beach Bar, resonates throughout A & B Block from 4pm to 1am. Rooms B4xx's windows vibrated while Babylon operating. If you plan to stay I recommend a room without a view toward the front of the hotel in A Block. Recommend hotels along the beach toward Langkawi Fair.
