I was very skeptical bout staying in a B&B as we are used to staying in 5star resorts whenever we travel. But we wanted the Malaysian Kampong 'feel'.
We came with a 18mth baby and our parents. Stayed in Amin and Jasmine house.
- very friendly & attentive
- on call whenever you need them
- Maria (owner) is very helpful with anything and everything u might need
- authentic malay house built
- airconditioning and fans

- plenty of clean towels and pool towels
- clean and tidy
- mosquito sprays provided
- toiletries (shampoo, bath gel) provided
- clean linen changed everyday
- TV and DVD player with great selection of DVDs u can pick from the main house
- breakfast is excellent if you are having local malay food
- we ordered dinner for most of e nights stayed there as its much NICER and authentic than ones u get outside (plus we had indonesian parents who are VERY fussy bout the food quality!)
- clean kitchen
- very quiet & surrounded by nature
- hired a car for our days there. very easy to get around as Foxhill is along the famous Makam Mahsuri Road. So if in doubt, look for this tourist sign!
- go for slightly cheaper rate for island hopping/boat trips from Maria
- cable car has great scene but u need to have e stamina to climb up n town
- waterfall. go to at least one for the experience but ask Maria if its open!
- water activities are on the beaches. prices are different for tourists so bit overpriced for me
- Makam Mahsuri is a small museum. Quite interesting. Shopping beside the complex is worth going. Better priced Batik materials can be bought there.
- DO NOT GO to the snake sanctuary. Waste of 15RM. Place has not been taken care of. You cant see the snakes. And unless u are donating your blood to the mosquitos, I suggest pls avoid!
- Cenang beach is the most happenings/populated. Other beaches are VERY quiet with no or little activities going on.
Shopping (Friday & Saturday most shop closes)
- Cenang beach has so far the best shopping. Kuah Capital is more scattered but u still can get some good finds and its cheaper. Try Langkawi Plaza Shopping Mall for touristy clothes. You can bargain better esp on the 2nd floor shops.
- Langkawi Craft Complex has nothing much to buy there. Quite a disappointment but you can have a look at the local malaysian craft. how its made etc. small souveniers sold are is slightly overpriced.
