We started our weekend in Blue Ginger in Bon Ton, what a great little Malay house, lots of charm and character, although i am 6ft 5 and it was just a little small, however we asked the next day whether they had any rooms available that were a little different as no room is the same and thus we always intended to sample the hotel. We moved 100 metres up the road to Colinial House 3 which was epic, truly colonial and much more suited for the taller person, double baths and showers....very comfortable and the mozzies didnt like us as much up there.
The management were lovely, very attentive, perhaps too much but on reflection really made you feel welcome and they were always ensuring we were well watered and fed. The food....wow....seriously good, very impressed and a strong wine list!!
Living in Singpaore you know that Malaysia is not cheap, if you are booking from Europe beware Langkawi is not your cheap holiday destination, taxis are comparable to Singapore, Wine as expensive if not more than the UK.......but a great island to chill out on and explore away from the hustle and bustle of Bali, it is just a little more rustic and rough around the edges.
I would definitely go back here, i would spend a tiny bit more and book the Black & White house at Temple Tree this time.
Onyl thing to note - there are a lot of cats around, so if allergic dont go there, otherwise they are very sweet and provide an endearing relaxed addition to the hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Though classified as B&B/Inn, Temple Tree is actually more of a boutique resort of many cultures, an eclectic mix of heritage chic...Antique buildings of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin, make up this 8 villa hotel, with 8 rooms & 6 suites now open. Each building has, over its 70-110 year old history, created its own heart and soul. Hopefully we have given due respect to each of these family homes with the restoration process. These houses are now the continuing the story of people who live in them, our guests. ... more less
