“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The Lanai, is a budget resort and real value for money, the staff is friendly and amenities are good for a budget traveler, room are clean and of appropriate size, Swimming is kept clean and large enough to have good time. beach side restaurant is really good and you can have sunset view while having your beer and relax. Only thing to mention that lot of lizards are in the hotel, specially located at 2nd floor lobby. Breakfast is just ok, you can have if you are not very fussy.
they have free locker locker facility at reception desk, which is very good for traveler.
The hotel is not very far from market place, you need to walk 20 minutes to reach night market and other restaurant.
Hotel is also a good option for families.

Room Tip: Occupy rooms at ground floor to avoid lizards.

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was well worth it. The rooms were standard not very modern but were fit for purpose. Breakfast was plenty, pools were okay too didn't use them. Hotel had its own beach which was lovely since it was the last hotel on that section so wasnt crowded. We hired a car and explored the island went to the cable car and drove around that was wonderful. We also went to the other beach Cenang I think it was called which was up the road where McDonald's duty free sea world and shops were, the beach here was equally lovely and you could do water sports and watch people get in balloons over the sea being pulled by speed boats, looked fun but not sure about the safety!! This hotel is located in the quieter side and is very nice. You can get taxis to places too. Would recommend it.

It is a value for money hotel, and do not go there expecting too much of luxury - what you pay is what you get.
Nevertheless, the rooms were pretty basic and decent enough. The staff were really helpful, friendly and courteous, and they accommodated all our requests with a smile.
The hotel location is quiet and peaceful, and is right next to the beach. They have a hotel/bar facing the beach (kind of private beach), which is really nice. The complementary breakfast had a nice spread.
All in all - we had a really pleasant stay at the Lanai.
Tip: Book this hotel if you are looking to spend much of your time outside exploring the island and not much concerned in indulging in luxuries.

Overall a nice resort when you want to do what you want without being constantly interrupted in the guise of hospitality. We were a family group of six, from the UK, India and Malaysia in a two-bedroom beach front chalet. The atmosphere was relaxing and casual and, the service, when requested, friendly and quick. Not a large selection of dishes on the menu, but whatever served, including buffet breakfast was delicious and wholesome. Nice beach front restaurant and bar. Great value for money and family friendly facilities.

The resort is right on the beach which is wonderful. The rooms are little old fashioned but very specious. Housekeeping and overall cleanliness of the resort is satisfactory. The swimming pool is big and well maintained. I'll book here again if I visit revisit Langkawi and one the main reason for that would be gala buffet breakfast. Overall this resort is ideal for couples, family and small groups.

Room Tip: try to book from booking.com

We arrived late but l still checked out 3 rooms they were happy to do this. The room was ok with block out curtains we found the the bed was firm but comfy and they provide 2 pillows each. The bathroom is small they need an exhaust fans though to combat the mould.

Breakfast is Buffett enough for everyone tastes, the restaurant at the beach is great with meals and cocktails watching the beautiful sunsets. There are plenty of banana lounges around the pool and there is a kids pool as well. Though we mainly used the ones under trees at the beach lovely sea breezes. Staff at the front desk were very helpful in ringing taxis for us. There are Restaurants with in walking distance and a supermarket for nibbles close as well.

Room Tip: Ground floor if you don't like stairs
