The location of the hotel is beautiful. Its facing the ocean (sort of backwater, do not assume the ocean for a beach here) on one side and on the other side they have a forest. Its a very peaceful location. However, its bit off from the main Centai Penang St and it costs roughly abt RM20 for taxi. Hotel is...

The hotel floor is quite dirty due to the light colour flooring. The bathroom is small and the water pressure wasn't strong enough. The worst of all is the sound proof system. If you have a noisy early bird or late sleeper next to ur room then good luck to you as u can listen to all their conversations clearly.

This resort is away from the town which is actually a good thing, so you feel safe and can get some quiet if you need to. This hotel is beautifully designed except some flaws in the rooms...

The room is very comfortable and clean, and it has awesome sea view from the balcony. Breakfast is provided (buffet style). It is nice quiet place to enjoy your vacation, but the location is bit far from the Cenang Beach and the town.

The view from the hotel was marvelous; we went island hoping which was quite amazing despite my hydrophobic nature. The hotel should definitely improve on their room service, it was absolutely terrible.

This hotel was renovated from the old Awana Porto Malai (which I've visited in 2010). Thus, it now sported a (better) modern look. Nothing extravagant to shout about, but pretty decent for the price tag including breakfast. Cleanliness of the room not up to my (not even an OCD!) standard. Visited the kids swimming pool which my kids loved but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Resorts World Langkawi is located 5 minutes away from the popular Cenang Beach and Tengah Beach, and approximately 15 minutes away from Langkawi International Airport. The seafront resort and marina overlooks east of Langkawi UNESCO Global Geopark, with the Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest as its backdrop and the sun rising along it. Peaceful and relaxing, the resort has finely furnished rooms and boasts spectacular and unobstructed views of the ocean, especially the newly renovated rooms of modern and functional design. Enjoy the convenience of our private jetty for activities like island hopping, private boat rides, sunset cruises and fishing. Intimate dining and walks along the boardwalk, or pampering at the recognized 5-star Javanese spa (Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa), are great options for couples. The hotel also provides free shuttle to Cenang Beach 5 times a day. The idyllic Resorts World Langkawi is perfect for travelers who appreciate scenery and romance, given peace and privacy away from busy tourist centers but at the same time mobility convenience at its doorstep. Live band performance is available daily except Monday. ... more   less

Townsville, Australia

My husband and I were looking at booking our accommodation during our visit to Langkawi with you. However to do this we needed some information to enable the on line booking to be completed.

Please see the email he sent to you requesting certain information (Number 1) and also the automated response from your organisation (Number 2).

UNFORTUNATELY we are not able to book with you until we receive a personal response.

Number 1 ------------------Our email to you

Good day to you,

My wife and I are interested in visiting Langkawi and your hotel looks fine on the internet.

However I have several questions for you before booking.

1. We like the Sunset Cruise Package (cut/pasted below) however we wish to stay 4D3N (06Dec to 09Dec 2016). Is this package (inc cruise) available with the extra day?

2. If so can you give me a quote?

3. Is/can breakfast be included?

4. How do we get there from the ferry terminal (we’re coming from Penang)? (Shuttle? Cost?)

5. Being a multi-storey building is there lifts to the upper floor? We both have injured knees/legs and are recuperating and have great difficulty with stairs.

6. Is there internet or Wi-Fi available (and cost)?

Subject to your reply we will be happy to book 4D3N from 06Dec2016.

Kind regards

Mr & Mrs Garry Cahill
