We choose Malibest resort based on the photos we saw online and we were pleasantly surprised by the place in reality. Granted it is no 5 star hotel but what we got was a lovely hut/chalet by the beach, and basic amenities that goes along with it.
We got the deluxe room which comes with a king size bed, TV, mini fridge and shower. The room has a floor to ceiling glass window which offers a lovely view of the beach. Room is clean and room service may be a tad slow at times given the number of rooms/ huts housekeeping has to comb daily. The room is air conditioned and simply furnished. Wifi is spotty at best. Though there is wifi in our room/ area for the entire week we were unable to connect from our room and have to go to the lobby whenever we needed to connect online. A minor inconvenience but given we are on vacation, it made us limit our online time.
Malibest Resort is pretty much in the middle of the town. It is centrally located at the Pantai Cenang beach which is just about 10 minutes cab ride from the airport. On the main strip of town there are plenty of shops and restaurants to browse and dine. Most of the shops open late and close late. Same with the restaurants. Malibest Resort has an Indian restaurant in front of the hotel but it does not serve breakfast. For breakfast options there is Breakfast Station which is located walking distance from the hotel.
Malibest resort offers one of the most stunning beaches in the world. Deck chairs can be rented daily for RM$10 which is approximately US$3 per day and it is yours for the whole day. Facing the Andaman sea, the waters
are clear and emerald green on a sunny day. Plenty of water sports options such as ski jets, para-sailing etc. are available here at reasonable rates. At sunset, when the tide is low, locals and tourists alike gather on the beach to watch the sunset, stroll, play football etc.
Overall, this hotel is a great place for budget travellers and we can't wait to stay at the tree top huts the next time.
