“exceeding expactations”
Reviewed March 10, 2011

It was a short escape from the cold Shanghai weather, 4 days of sun and beach fun in Langkawi.
We (2 couples) weren't planning to spend much time in the room, so opted for a budget hotel without much pretensions. We chose The White Lodge based on Tripadvisor recommendations booked via Agoda. It turned out to be much nicer than the photos and for the price paid. Basically all the rooms are semi-detached little houses with a small veranda and functional bathroom with individual water heater, each room has a fridge, TV, aircon and coffee making kettle. It's simply yet pleasantly furnished in warm tones with a local touch, clean.
One thing you should know when booking is that there's virtually no service in the hotel, no F&B, reception desk closes around 21h and nighttime there's no one you can call should you need (which we didn't). They can however help you with tours and activities but prices are higher than average.
The hotel is some 7 minutes walk from Tengah beach and around 10 minutes from Cenang, there are shops within a few minutes too. 20 ringgit and 15-20 minutes by taxi from the airport.
I can easily recommend The White Lodge to anyone not willing to spend too much on the room and would return if going back to Langkawi with friends.

Basically, as it was a motel we did not expect much however we were pleasantly surprised. Firstly the beds provided were clean and big, a king sized and single bed and the rooms itself were pretty spacious, with all the essentials of aircon and fridge and tv. Initially there was a disgusting toilet smell wafting from the toilet but after opening the window in the toilet the smellw was greatly reduced and we could lock the door so it was fine as well.

The location was a bit further from the beach about a 5 to 10 minutes walk, but it wasn't very far anyway so that was fine. The room was tidied and cleaned everyday and I was quite impressed by the level of cleanliness displayed by the motel and overall The White Lodge made my stay in Langkawi much more pleasant. Definitely value for money, and a great palce to stay. :):)

Very good value for money with clean rooms, nice beds and a good location very near the beach. The bathroom could be more exciting but it certainly good enough. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is made of several bungalows.....very clean and in well kept grounds. No breakfast inc but enough reasonably priced restaurants to walk to. Lovely beaches within a short walk.. Recommend Tomato restaurant...always very busy....great food and very cheap. Also being a Coeliac and finding eating anywhere in Asia a challenge my husband & I stumbled across a wonderful store selling Gluten free products imported from Australia....many items I know well! We had hired a moped....good idea as got us round the Island to see many beautiful places . The store is just past the airport...it's called Hegner...Fine Food & Beverages ...2 Remah Kulai 07100 Pulau Langkawi

We arrive at hotel around 3:00 pm, since maybe we are local, no special greet from their staff just like in other hotel. But the best of this chalet it their cleanliness. The tiles floor was so clean and not even have any dust on it, the room was so spacious, even I request with one king size bed, they give me an extra single bad attached together with master bed. There only thing is quality of pillow, the pillow was so thin and a bit firm. Maybe they need to replace with new pillow soon.

Location at the end of Pantai Cenang, across the road and beach. So you need to walk around 200m to beach. Location was very quite and privacy

I was a bit hesitant at first while booking a room here as they asked me to make a 50% down payment via paypal.

But my fears were unfounded...we reached this lovely little place just off the main Cenang beach road with its private car park and well laid out little rooms (chalet is a bit of an exaggeration). Just carried a copy of the email from them confirming the payment and our room was ready.

Don't expect too much in terms of amenities..there is no room service at all so you need to fend for yourself in terms of food and even drinking water. But they have pretty clean rooms with air con and hot water, and a cleaning service that comes in between 8am to 12 noon.

If you're looking for a simple but clean and comfortable place to stay in the heart of Langkawi but don't wanna spend a bomb then this is the perfect place!

P.S. Ask for Adie..his number is listed on their website.
