Hi

I would like to nominate the Rasa Sayang [rasa wing if you can] in penang and Casa del Mar in Langawki. Both have the extra luxury feel that you want on your honeymoon and fit your criteria of nightlife/Markets. You will not get any snorkelling in Penang.

A second choice in Penang would be E&O, and in Langawki would be Pelangi Beach. There are some much more fabulous hotels in Langkawi, but they are very remote and don't fit your criteria.

Spliting the 12 days between the 2 would give you chance to get the know the area. Travelling between Penang and Langkawi is easy (fly or ferry), and both are easy to get to/from KL.

Just remember dont swim in the sea its polluted and full of very nasty jelly fish, but the pools are loverly ,and if you stay in the rasa wing there are no chidren so very relaxing, being a smaller pool(not overly small) its warmer than the large garden wing pool, dont like cold water!!! Have a FAB time, best wishes aka denise.

Hi Kitty,

You must make it a point to stay a few nights in Langkawi.

You could also go to the Langkawi Forum to have a better idea of Langkawi and its resort. Go to the Hotel review section to help you decide on the resort.

Langkawi is a more relax and clean place and a paradise

for honeymooners.

Thanks

Stayed at the Pelangi Beach in Langkawi last year, and would recommend without a doubt. Your room is your own Malaysian style hut, fabulous. We asked for a Lake View, and was not disappointed. It came with its own monitor lizard!!. Also staff were fantastic. However we're staying at the rasa sayang this year in Penang, so watch this space !
