Resorts World Langkawi,formerly known as Awana Porto Malai, wil be very busy during LIMA but during the normal season it is quite quiet. Me and my wife stayed for a night as to evaluate the hotel itself. I am not so sure whether the word RESORTS really suits the hotel itself. When we arrived we have to carry our own baggage but maybe the bell boy was it bit busy so it is excusable
At the reception there were one very senior staff and another very young one. It was quite a long queue and only both of them were handling the situation.
The room that we checked in is facing the sea..not the beach as this is a no beach resort.Anyway the view is fantastic.I would suggest to everyone not to check in a hill view room as there is nothing to view except a huge open car park.
The swimming pool is okay ..at least something to do at the hotel..
Breakfast menu is much better compare to another hotel with I did mentioned before with more choices.If we want to enjoy the beach , the resort will provide us a boat ride for free to an island which is infront of the resort itself. But of course I would suggest to go in a group. Either wise you will feel so lonely on the small rock island but at least the resort management does have the initiative to provide the service.
Overall I may say that the resort is okay to be stayed but you must have a full activities within the Langkawi Island itself such as Island Hopping, cable car or anything unless you really dont want to do anything but relaxing on the bench enjoying the sea view.
