“Spacious Cosy Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We are given Jelita room with 2 queen beds. The beach is a bit away but a walking distance. We purposely rented an accommodation away from the beach to avoid the hustle & bustle. So that we can have a good night sleep after a day tour in Langkawi. The breakfast that comes with the room was soo marvelous especially nasi lemak, french toast & house sandwiches to name a few. Island hopping is a must while you are in Langkawi. Definitely will come here again & ask for Anggun room instead.

We stayed at Rasa Eksotika (RE) for three nights. Upon arrival we were led up grotty path away from the beach. Tucked away were three chalets. They looked pretty grim. The interior on first inspection was ok, there are some nice ornaments and the presentation was quite good. The room is painted in a dark colour with no proper window. This lack of light hides a lot of shabbyness. The lightshade was mouldy and dirty and veneer was peeling off all over the place. At night there is a lot of insect noise. There was a large gap at the bottom of our door so we had to put a towel down to stop the insects coming in. A few made it anyway. Breakfast was included and it was atrocious. You order off a menu and the staff bring you something different. This happened so many times. Even when you get what you order it is flavourless and small. The only good things I can say is that the owner is quite friendly and the wifi is very good. All in all I could not recommend RE to anyone.

This is a very beautiful place! Just beautiful. Good decoration and good add ons but you can't sleep as the mattresses are ruined and you don't understand it till you go to bed. As you put your weight on the bed it starts going down and you understand that you have made a big mistake by just looking at this beautiful place and not trying the mattress.
We just were counting the seconds till morning and early when the fist daylight appeared we jumped out of this hotel.

Hi All,

A few point to note about this home type accommodation:

1) Location: Pantai Cenang- about 150m-200m walk from the main road, near to beach
2) The room itself is so so only, nothing great, items in the room looks old and thrashed out.
3) Not much security at front door, just a normal plank wood and a key to open, so cant keep anything valuable inside.
4) Bathroom look so old.
5) Has an old CRT tv and not LCD, limited tv channel.
6) Ok for cheap stay
7) Has a ceiling fan, aircond. heater in the bathroom and a fridge.

Will not stay here again as the surrounding and rooms were just not up to a level of comfort besides the basic amenities given in the room unless you are up to a village style living...:)

Thank you

Room Tip: No suggestion, avoid if have better budget

When we arrived at Rasa everything seemed ok till we were lead 20/30 meters down a path behind the reception. Being led past someone's house daubed in grafitti we were lead to our room which seemed very isolated opposite an untidy area of untidy land. On entering the room seemed nicely decorated but there were stains on the bed, the room smelled foisty, and the bathroom was in a terrible condition despite the fact that other people had complained about the state of it in previous trip advisor reviews of this room (Chantek). This place maybe ok for travellers on a budget but at the price they are charging it maybe too expensive for that market. We sought out another hotel and moved just hours after checking in, the sunset beach resort was a little extra but I wish I'd spent just that bit more to begin with to avoid this hastle and losing 4 nights accommodation!

Room Tip: Pick a room in another hotel!!

Liked the bali styled deco of the room..can't say much about the location cos it's so close to the beach n everything else..there is space for parking of the rented car too..the free breakfast kept us full n we don hav to worry much early in the morning about where to find things to eat..the staff are helpful too. Keep it up:)

Our trip was on budget hence, we're not here for luxury.
Location-wise, Rasa is located along Pantai Cenang, so its just 5 mins to the beach which is very convenient.
Room is clean (I'm happy so long as there's aircon and the bed is clean) and bed is very soft.
If u are a breakfast person then you might face some difficulty getting breakfast along Pantai Cenang especially if you are a early morning person also.
There's a kettle in our room but there's no coffee/tea making facilities available.
The hook for the shower-head is damage and shower room is very basic.
Overall, I'm happy with the room.
As for the receiption counter, you need some luck to see the staff around. Twice, we went to the reception counter and the staff is not around.

You dun have to worry there's no accomodation (but maybe the budget) coz there's plenty of places offering accomodation, just the price & location differs. :D

Note: Please rent a car / bike to get around the island.
