Visit Langkawi some time in December and expect it to be hot, very hot several days it was a very hot and humid 43 degrees.
Which is probably why you are staying in Langkawi anyway so should not be a problem that you'll need to spend quite a bit of your stay in the pool area.
The good news is in theory you could stay sitting at the in pool bar sipping cool cocktails or just enjoy a snack from the decent pool snack bar.
Don't expect anything to elaborate on the menu but its good quality and pretty good value.
The rooms are a series of what can best described as woodern huts which are kept cool by air conditioning which is a but noisy when running on full speed which is something you will need both day and night.
Each block of rooms are placed in neat little tropical gardens and there is a central meeting area and reception.
The standard of food is what could be described as decent nothing is going to satisfy the client looking for Michelin star dining but for typical tourist food its not bad. The food seems well cooked and fresh and there is a decent level of choice for those not that adventerous with food when travelling.
Entertainment wise there is a evening local band and other organsied events which are typical of a tourist resort hotel don't expect anything that impressive but nice location to chill out after a busy day or a day on the beach.
Location is a bit remote and in the heat of the day you'll want to carry a good supply of water as stopping of points can seem a long way even when you can see them you'll be fit to drop and dripping wet and in need of refreshment.
If you need a busy night life and tons of modern facilities this resort and indeed probably Langkawi aren't for you but everyone else will love it's friendly family atmosphere from the minute you land at the qaint little airport and get that first blast of hot air.
Probably not enough to do for 14 days so maybe combine with a City or Penang for a good long haul holiday.
