Langkawi, Malaysia. A Mystical Island

When you say Langkawi alot comes to mind to different people. Some think of it as the mystical island with the legend of Mahsuri. Some as a Duty Free Shopping haven for liquor, kitchenware and chocolates. Some of its many islands and beautiful beaches. For us one reason we chose Langkawi this holiday was something educational, the Mahsuri Legend. And the what we love most, beaches. But alas it was raining the whole four days, so the beach was out of the question. Maybe next time. Luckily Langkawi is not only about the beach. Here are some of the places we visited during those four days. The flight to Langkawi was about 45 minutes and to move around we rented a car.

What to do in Langkawi

Underwater World Langkawi

The Underwater World Langkawi (UWL) is located in Pantai Cenang, Langkawi. Its found exactly toward the end of Pantai Cenang Road on the right hand side. Its not hard to miss it. Parking is plentiful, but it was full. Reason being we were there during the Malaysian School Holidays. What’s more, the complex is air-conditioned. An extraordinary spot to get away from the afternoon Langkawi sun.
To know just visit my review, Escaping the Sun at Underwater World Langkawi

Laman Padi, Langkawi

Had mixed sentiments when visiting this place. Saw some incredible reviews on the food and Laman Padi. Yet when we were there, it was something very different. Not certain if we came at a wrong time. Reason being some Tripadvisor reviewers wrote about a café, with pleasant food. Where you could feast in little sheds in padi fields. But when we went there the place looked deserted.

Makam Mahsuri

A must visit place when you are in Langkawi. Here lies the tomb of Mahsuri. Mahsuri was a young lady who lived in Langkawi whose family moved from an island in Thailand during the late eighteenth century. She was believed to be extremely beautiful. Her beauty led her downfall. When she was falsefully accused for adultery. On the day of her execution, she cursed the island of Langkawi to seven generations of misfortune. The curse has now lapsed and that is the reason Langkawi is booming. Google about this old stories, it will most likely make your visit fascinating.

Dataran Lang

Dataran lang is located at the kuah jetty. We first had lunch at the food court at the jetty. Then took a slow walk to the large eagle. Along the way you can see ferriea and boats coming in and out of the jetty.

Where we stayed

Malibest Resort

We chose this place on the day of our arrival as a stopover before we went to Berjaya Langkawi. Sort of a cheap rest place. Reason being its near to the airport, so we won’t be tired after our flight. Took us a long time to locate this place as the main building look like it was undergoing renovation. And there were no visible signages. The lobby is in the main building. Check in was fast and staff were friendly.

Berjaya Langkawi

The Berjaya Langkawi Resort is a wonderful retreat which has two very different room atmosphere. You can either stay at the “Rain forest Villas” of which you will be surrounded by rich greenery. Or in “On The Water Villas” which is situated on the ocean. As we have stayed on the water previously. Not in Langkawi but somewhere else. We chose the “Rain forest Villas”. And we were not disappointed.

My Little villa in the Jungle. Berjaya Langkawi Resort

We were given room 3160 and 3159. The villa was perched stilts on a slope surrounded by enormous trees. The room had a simple and modern design. All villas are located good distance from one another. So there a kind of privacy as every villa is surrounded by trees. Peaceful. Every villa had their own air conditioner and water heaters. And also the basic amenities that you normally find in 5 star hotels. Just be aware there are a lot of monkeys around. Don’t leave your windows or doors open. I saw few monkeys stealing food from guest plates during breakfast. Which was fairly entertaining to my three children.


 
 
 
 
Woke up early, had my morning coffee on the balcony, enjoying the peacefulness. Heavenly especially with the busy schedule I had prior to this holiday.
 
 
For moving around, there is shuttle services provided. But I suggest if your room is not too far from the lobby take a slow walk. Enjoy the surrounding nature. All the way you will be serenaded by the sound of crickets.
 
Breakfast was excellent. But a little crowded. What do expect, it was the Malaysian School Holidays. The staff handled the breakfast crowd well. And also handled the monkeys too. LOL. For dinner we had buffet for both days as the ala carte restaurants were full. Food was ok, nothing much to shout about.
 
There are a kid’s pool, kid’s club, adult pool and water sport activities. And of course a very lovely beach. But we didn’t get a chance to try it as the weather was bad when we stayed there.

My Verdict

 
Berjaya Langkawi Resort is an incredible place to stay. Particularly the Rain forest Villas. Missus wants to return again. Perhaps when the climate is better, so we can spend more energy on the beach. Staffs are friendly. Particularly the buggy driver that brought us to our room.
 
A suggestion the lobby shop ought to have a few souvenirs with the Berjaya Langkawi Resort Logo. So as we can bring back memories of Berjaya Langkawi Resort.
 
An incredible place to stay. If you are looking for a place free of bugs and creepy crawlies, avoid this place. Here you will share the space with nature. HEAVENLY
