Malibest Resort
Ranked #29 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

This was our second time @ malibest. This round we opted for a treetop room and were lucky that there was a room available only for one night.

Several highlights of Malibest and its Treetop Room.
1. Location
Right on Pantai Cenang. Few hundred metres from Casa Del Mar and Meritus Pelangi.

2. Food, Convenient Store and Souveniers

Dont worry... Abundant of foods available at Pantai Cenang. From local to western, mediterranean, chinese, japanese, cafe and fast food are all within walking distance. 24 hours convenient store right across the road.

3. Rooms
Our room was clean with simple decoration, and the bathroom was also clean. Aircond functioned well. However, TV seems like no signal. But we havent got time to watch tv. Being on a treetop, we felt privacy, as we almost cant hear any noisy from the ground. From our balcony we can see the beach and the view was amazing.

4. Others
Malibest also offered tour package and as a guest there are special prices. We tried the island hopping and mangrove package during our visit in 2011 and was satisfied with the service.

Moments we enjoyed were sunrise and sunset at Pantai Cenang. Strolled along the beach in the morning, reached beach at Meritus Pelangi. Put the mat and laid on the beach with music on....

It was a value for money, and we were happy with our stay. We will return to Malibest and of course to the treetop room in our next visit.

been here for 3d2n, on the tree house:p the scenary was awesome, the sky, the beach and the sand are amazing. strategic location, near to shops and restaurant. my recommendation if you wanna stay on the tree house, avoid bulky trolley luggage bag, as you are the one who will take those bag up to your room. in our case, we leaved those bags in the car, and only bring up important stuff. oh ya, and they dont have any buffet breakfast, but no worry, as the restaurant is just near by.

Highly recommend this place. The rooms are big, and it's right by the beach. If you are looking for something affordable that has a good view, this is the place to be.

Special shoutout to one of their service staff - Aida. We travelled in a big group and it was a very last minute decision to visit Langkawi. We only had one night booked at this place as we couldnt find any availabilities online for the second night. Aida helped us secure rooms for our second night there.

If I were to pick one thing to complain, that would be the lack of towels in the room. Sometimes their room service staff just *forgets* to leave towels in the room and that you had to personally go down to request for it.

Every thing is good about this hotel- the room, the location, the staffs.
However the Deluxe Melayu can be a little uncomfortable with all the wood noises and stairs but if you wanna experience the malay way of living you can book that room...but personally i dont recommend this type of room. Other Beach Front rooms are EXCELLENT, it made our holiday.
The restaurant is a bit expensive but you can walk and have more options to eat here and there.
Malibest is an excellent hotel to stay! :)

This place was quite special. We stayed in the tree house called Meranti which had a balcony facing the see. Despite the strange plastic imitation wood interior (even the floor), and the rudimentary facilities, it was one of the best places to stay ever. A couple of steps to a fairly welcoming beach. It's on the opposite end of luxury, but it doesn't pretend to be anything other than some fairly basic accommodation on the beach. I do wonder what the future is for this sort of accommodation as new hotels seem to be popping up everywhere on Pantai Chenang beach.

Room Tip: Meranti is one of the treehouses that fully faces toward the beach

I went to Langkawi in March 2013 with family. It was our first family vacation outside India and we wanted it to be good. My brother who stayed in KL made all the arrangements. The resort had a private beach and a safe. A Wi-Fi connection is available throughout the resort.The bathroom had complimentary toiletries and there was a TV too(which was of little use to us).

The resort has an on-site restaurant, convenient for those wishing to eat in which also serves Indian Food to our great pleasure.. In the evening, the lounge bar provides a perfect spot to relax and sample one of the drinks on offer.

Room Tip: Try to take the beach side rooms for a beach view experience.
