By all means, get a treehouse or beachfront room. You are footsteps from the sand and seconds from the ocean. The resort is fine as the staff were all very friendly and my room was cleaned every day without exception and I was there for 14 days. The only real negative was the WIFI. It was spotty at best and... More

We had 2 rooms during a 5 night stay both good, solid bungalows with a clear view of the sea. We moved to the only villa for a more luxurious experience and it was great with large sitting room located right on the beach which is perfect. The beach itself is nice but lots of gangs of holiday makers having... More

Stayed here with my wife for a few days and would recommend the resort to anybody who's gonna visit this island. The wooden villa is just breathtaking and spacious. The service is extremely friendly and helpful and the management of the hotel works 24 hours around the clock to ensure the comfort of their guests. We would recommend this hotel... More

We were 5 couples, looking for a hotel for a long weekend in Langkawi. Found Malibest which had available rooms for our dates. This is NOT a luxury hotel, but a hotel that gives you the basics for sleeping and getting clean, on the beach, with a wonderful view to the sunset. Make sure you get a beach-front room, they...

One thing can sure of is that these staffs at the front desk would just keep on pursuing you to join their package tour by hard-selling and this was very irritating and... More

I stayed one night at Malibest Resort Standard Brick Room. Overall, I am satisfied with the facilities at the Resort. The room are well-maintained and clean. Noted that the floor have tilings so you won't have to deal with squeaky wood planks or even musty carpet smell. Pantai Chenang is just across the road from the rooms. Ample parking space,... More

We didn't stay in the hotel but we did go a couple of times to its Indian restaurant that for some reason isn't listed here. Very good Indian, really recommend the mutton chettinad and the parathas. The servings are relatively huge and considering it's Langkawi are quite good value. One rice easily serves 2.

This resort is located right in the heard of the happening part of Langkawi. The rooms are right on the beach and the views from the room are goo. However, do not expect anything more. There are no bell boys and you have to pick up your luggage on your own. There are 2-3 housekeeping ladies who would clean the... More
