“beautiful hotel, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

We stayed here for four nights and loved it. The beach was absolutely stunning and the pool was great. We spent most of our time at the adult only pool, which had great views of the beach. At some point each day when the tide goes out, you can walk along the sandbar, which is stunning.
We stayed in the lowest category of room and it was fantastic. The bed was very comfortable and we had a balcony looking onto the courtyard. Overall, the quality of the room was very high. The pool had happy hour drinks each day for several hours, which was also very nice. Given the remote location, we ate almost exclusively at the resort, which was fairly priced (also for drinks). The food was good, but not great, as it was altered to cater to the western clients. The breakfast was very good though. We stayed during the current renovations, which we did not find to be a problem at all. From the pool the noise was minimal and they started late and ended early, so it was not disruptive. If you want to explore Langkawi, you would probably want to rent a car, as the resort is quite remote.

My wife and I stayed here after visiting KL and Genting.
The hotel grounds are stunning, especially the pool areas which are amazing, the main pool is something very special. The beach is white sands and the water is perfect for swimming, at low tide the water parts and creates a path to walk to the islands in the water. It really is something you have to see to believe!
The pool bar was great and had a variety of cocktails to try, the hotel has a library and a DVD collection that you can take back to your room.
Often we would sit in the library deck with cocktail and watch the sunset, the view at sunset is like something out of a postcard.
The food at the restaurants were all to a very high standard especially as the price was all inclusive.
The rooms are a bit dated and need some refurbishment.
All in all a nice romantic break after the hustle of KL, would definitely recommend if looking travelling to Langkawi.

We stayed here Oct 2012 and I'm not sure why I haven't reviewed yet, as I still talk about this hotel now!
The hotel is set in absolutely beautiful grounds, it is slightly spread out which makes it feel private and not overrun. The 3 pools are all uniquely situated in the environment. The beach is pristine and perfect to swim in. The food in both restaurants was lovely and staff could not go any further out of their way to help. The pool bar also had happy hour hour which was always a great start to an evening!
The rooms were amazing and well equipped, with luxurious features.
The hotel was a little out of town, but if you are looking for the perfect, romantic get away I could not recommend this place more.

Absolutely great place for the vacation. Langkawi is a very calm island with friendly people around and beautiful tropical nature.
If you have chosen this resort, be prepared for very high prices - food and drinks will cost you 10 times more, than downtown. So, we just took a taxi down to the southern coast and enjoyed fresh seafood, fish.
All in all, our stay was wonderful. The management of the hotel takes a very good care of their status, so you will enjoy your stay a lot.
Only one word that I can find to describe the place - paradise! Enjoy your stay!

We stayed 5 nights here after a short break in Kuala Lumpur and at first the chilled out vibe of the place was a little too much to take in after the busy-ness of KL!

Check in takes place in your room, so no waiting around in the lobby. Great room layout, loved the products provided and the fact that in-room dining 24/7 was included on the All Inclusive package.

We were given a map of the resort but discovered that due to the renovations a lot of the walkways on the map were closed off, so you had to walk "the long way round" to get to places and go back on yourself sometimes.

Dining was also a bit confusing due to renovations. The food itself we can't fault - that was amazing! However some of the restaurants were closed, but their menus were being served in other locations, some places you needed a reservation, others you didn't. Even by the end of our stay we hadn't quite figured out what menu was being served where and on what night!

The staff were really friendly but we didn't always get the info we were looking for due to some of them speaking limited English. We ended up getting tips from some of the other guests who had visited this hotel multiple times, they offered some great insights for us but unfortunately they also highlighted more things that we missed out on due to the renovations, like the reading room/lounge, which was closed.

Despite this, the beach, swimming pools and views from the hotel made up for some of renovation issues. The spa was also great for treatments, and gym was well equipped.

I think we would come back, but probably not until the renovations are completed.

Room Tip: I think rooms in block 13 are the ones which have been newly renovated, so worth asking for one of t...

An amazing highly romantic hideaway under brilliant management. Results are outstanding service in every aspect - perfect tidiness of both rooms and the overall hotel facilities and a resulting an perfect experience. During our stay there were construction activities however these were managed in a very professional discrete manner. The hotel website provides guests with a schedule of works to manage expectations so that guests can decide if they want to book or not. Nevertheless these works DID NOT affect out holiday experience in any way.

We enjoyed the resort and our room on the first floor overlooking the family lagoon pool was comfortable and well serviced. The Wellness centre was excellent and not withstanding the current building improvements, found the combination of pools and the beach enjoyable. Breakfast was a highlight and the staff were at all times friendly and very helpful with any of our requests.

Room Tip: We would choose level one again as there is no lift and privacy is maintained.
