This hotel was under renovation when we stayed so unfortunately, the best rooms with ocean view were not available. Upside was that the hotel was utterly quiet with probably only at a third of its full capacity and management granted all guests complimentary activities as a compensation of the inconvenience caused.
The hotel has truly the best beach in Langkawi and it is for guests only, with a breathtaking sunset.
The Sands pool, for adults only, is great and large enough (50 meters) for real swimming, very clean and well maintained.
The Rhu is an excellent top end restaurant but be prepared to pay the price accordingly. The location is perfect for those who look for calm and quietness away from the frenzy of Pantai Cenang.
As for the areas of improvement, the room we were staying was a bit outdated and humid. It may explain the need for renovation.
The Sands restaurant is also outdated and not so welcoming with ugly mesh nets all around for whatever reason. It would clearly need better decor and refurbishment.
We recommend this hotel especially after full renovation is completed.
