“Had a lovely time. Friendly staff. Lovely Beach. Peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

I stayed at on 21 September. I wanted to try it out as I booked another place 2 months in advance. Tropical Resort was 4 times more worth than the other hotel I booked (and a lot cheaper too). Everything was close: beach, cheap food, expensive food, shopping, etc -- all at a walking distance. I got 1-bar of wifi from my room -- but it doesn't matter when everything else fit into place. I had a rare occasion to make friends with a Hornbill that was playing at the tree near my room. All in all, will come and stay at the same place again.

I've been meaning to write this review for some time as even though it's been a while since I visited, the tropical resort, I often think of the great week we had in Lankawi for which this was our base... and we couldn't have picked a better one.

I stayed here with a friend two years ago and found it be the best value the location has to offer.... and we shopped around, checking out practically every spot along Pentai Chenang and most of Tengah too before discovering this gem. The bungalow was spotlessly clean and the gardens well maintained. The resort doesn't offer all of the bar, massage and restaurant bells and whistles that some Langkawi resorts boast, but not having these amenities on site mean you get great accommodation for a fraction of the price... and just pop across the road to a great spa or take a short stroll along the beach to the lighthouse for a drink in arguably the best sunset spot on the island. Tropical resort has its own pathway leading down to the beautiful beach (Pentai Tengah) too. The resort is very quiet so despite the nightlife of Pentais Tengah and Chenang being a very short stroll away, it won't disturb your sleep.

The only thing that may be an issue is that the resort had a no alcohol policy which meant we couldn't have a cold beer on the bungalow balcony in the evening, but this was absolutely no issue for us and there's no shortage bars (of all types) close by anyway.

I stayed in this hotel from 10 to 13 of September. The reservation and check in process was pretty smooth. The room was in an awesome location. It was room 16. Room was clean and spacious. AC and ceiling fan were in good condition. The wifi is not a available in rooms. Instead, there is a very lovely place close to the reception with wifi. In fact the area is a kind of library which was great idea. Overall, it is highly recommended.

We stayed in the comfortable deluxe room set in a nice garden setting. It's only a couple of minutes to the beach and the main shopping / dining area while being in a quiet location - supermarket, scooter rental, breakfast joints and restaurants all within minutes.

A simple double room and bathroom. You can walk straight from your room, down a short track to the beach. Free WIFI is available around the reception area. The staff were extremely helpful, but not much English spoken ( which we liked!) Great value and we thought it was lovely, but it is not the place for you if you want all the entertainment/facilities of a big hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in a deluxe, facing towards the sea, no view but it looked over gardens rather than other...

My trip to Langkawi was undertaken in mid-June'13 and reviewed soon yet coz of there's no possibility for rewiew correcion on this source but rather delete it was completely removed.

So as for Tropical Resort it's a beautiful place with nice bungalows in a garden and Wi Fi zone to the library either quite near the other hotels and restaurants with different Asian cuisines, SPA, shops or nice quiet seashore on a straight walk way as well.
It was also car/bike rental points of service and travel agencies in quite a walk way as well.

The rooms were clean and comfortable with all the necessary conveniences like air condition, fan, frige and TV. It was even antimosquito gadget provided with a stuff.

The rooms were cleaned every day with attentive stuff and no inconvenience was caused by that action.

Special thanks to Mr Shukri (the gentlemen on reception) for advice in docs Malay translation, Mr KK (with travel agency) for a nice trip over the island with guide assistance and also Azahar (navy man before and taxi driver for a moment) for efficient recommendation and personal help with business and private matters.

Actually the place for trace leaving to mind for a nice sweet memory.

It is run by a family and the rooms are really nice and clean! They do not have food option but its ok as the main market- Pentai Cenang is walking distance from it! The library area is very nice! Wi-fi is very good though it won't reach the room.

The location is nice as it's away from the hustle bustle market and has the beach! I fell in love with their 3 kittens!
