“A GEM TO FIND - BRILLIANT PLACE TO STAY”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

An amazing place to stay. So personalised and true to all comments listed by other trip advisor members. Staff were exceptional, Shyda, especially advised us on places to eat and to go, she organised a taxi and driver for 4 hours who showed us around the island. Great value.
On us leaving to go to Penang she also give us lots of information for our trip there, especially to see the mural paintings around Georgetown which were brilliant.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Molek, loved our time in Langkwai and would return again.

Just arrived back after a wonderful 5 day stay at Villa Molek. We were so pleased to have found a gem of a place! Attention to detail in the villa itself was great. Very clean and tastefully decorated. In our opinion much nicer than staying in a 5 star hotel! The grounds and pool were perfect nice and quiet atmosphere. Breakfast with good choices of cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurt and also hot choice of eggs bacon etc. Kept us going until our evening dinner!

All the staff are polite and friendly and could not do enough for us. A special mention has to go to Shyda who greeted us on arrival and saw us off when we departed and who was a great help throughout our stay with her knowledge of the island regarding eating out and things to do. She made our stay very special and is a perfect hostess all round and and a great asset to the Villa Molek.

Also great places to eat nearby especially good is the Oasis go down to the beach turn right at the Sugar restaurant and walk along the beach for about 5 minutes food superb location perfect for cocktails overlooking the sea.

We are frequent visitors to th Maldives and thought that It would be hard to beat but Langkawi is up there with the Maldives!

After a trip to Australia this was a perfect place to chill out before returning home to London. We will definitely be returning soon to Villa Molek but this time for longer we loved it that much.

We stayed here on the recommendation of friends and we were not disappointed.
The room (it is more like a small flat, if the kitchen was better equipped you could live full time in it), was divided in two by a wall which separated the bedroom/dressing area/separate toilet and shower from the kitchen/living area which had a small sitting area, couch, coffee table, tv, desk, etc.The kitchen has a toaster,kettle, fridge/freezer and all the utensils needed to make breakfast, sandwiches, etc but we had breakfast included in the price of the room. Beach mats and beach flip flops were also provided along with beach towels that were replaced daily.
The sleeping side of the room had a four poster type bed with a lovely frame work, above it draped with voile fabric,plenty of storage space for clothes, toilet,shower with nice square sink positioned on the wall in between the two plus a shelf unit which has a safety box fixed to the wall on it.
Outside is a large balcony (we had an upper level room, choice of ground or upper) which over looked the small pool with clothes rail for drying clothes on and two chairs and table.
The whole room was furnished in a lovely boutique style.
Our room was 110.
Breakfast is served in the cafe near reception,there is a buffet choice of cereals ,fruit, cold meats, etc. then there is a menu to choose from with about six choices, two of which are Malay, your choice is served at the table.
There is a small spa for foot massage etc (we had a free 30 minute foot massage) just opposite reception.
Outside the villas on the opposite side of the road is a good Mexican and Lebanese restaurant, turn to the left and after about 10 minutes walk is a good Thai place and a little bit further on a good Malaysian place called Sheelas in a garden setting (would advise booking). If you turn to the right and go to the main street look for a sign for Oasis on the beach about 5 minutes walk on your left, follow lane and it is at the end, very nice Indian right on the beach. There are many others to choose from but these were our favorites.
The owners Peter and Suzanna (she makes lovely flower arrangements) and all the staff were always happy, smiling and very helpful especially Shyda.
Just two small minus point wi-fi is no good in the rooms, no problems at reception but this gets a bit annoying if you want to skype, e-mail etc, and maybe the staff uniforms in reception and cafe could be a bit smarter?
We had a good room rate by dealing directly with the owners.

Room Tip: There are only 12 rooms(i think) all in good positions but book early at peak times as we saw many p...

We stayed here for 19 nights,and having read many other reviews we were not disappointed,the staff were friendly, and very helpful.The rooms could perhaps do with a little TLC,but nothing that detracted from the overall holiday. The rooms were large and spacious with separate sitting area,small kitchen with tea/coffee, fridge,large bedroom with 4 poster bed and large dressing area.We had room 112 which was at the end of the complex which meant that no one was walking by, another plus for us was that children are not allowed which enabled us to have peace and quiet.Recommended for massages is the Staranise spa which is located within the villa complex

I was looking for a relaxing and quiet atmosphere and I've read each and every review about this hotel before booking in it and it seemed to be the best choice in Langkawi although it's rated as 3 stars only. Luckily everything about this hotel was either as I was expecting or above my expectations. The staff are super friendly, The rooms design was very smart but without lavishness, it has almost all amenities and everything you need for a long stay... Very Recommended and I will definitely book in this hotel again.

We just stayed for 6 nights at Villa Molek and enjoyed it very much. The garden is beautiful, the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. There are only 12 rooms which gives a very intimate feeling. The rooms are big and very well designed (it is more a studio) with a lot of space and all amenities. A big fridge, lounge area and a spacious bathroom. Separate toilet area. The beach is nearby, at walking distance. And if you walk 10 minutes, there is an abundance of restaurants. The people at Villa Molek are very friendly and forthcoming. We loved the breakfast and the attention to details overall. We will definitely be back!

We stayed here for a week and we are happy to have experienced this place. If you want peace and quiet and a green environment this is the place for you.
The rooms are big and clean. There is everything you need (fridge, water boiler, AC, tea, coffee and water). You also have a little veranda with view over the pool. The bathrooms are cool and clean! Comfortable beds.
The pool is tiny, but it`s good if you just want to cool down.
The breakfast is OK, not so big, but enough.
The staff was very helpful and friendly.
We recommend this place!
