Book through booking.com, didn't realize term and condition. A day before check in called the reservation team, whom rather inexperience and lazy. Asked to speak with the manager due to check in late at 2300hrs, as predicted the answer is "No, you can not -- we will cancel your booking if you arrive after 1800hrs".

Stayed for two days in the resort. Even though it was not a seaview room, it was generally clean & neat upon arrival. Staff were really friendly. During the trip, I had mistaken one of my room lights to be blown & called for maintenance. Upon check, he verified that it was not & taught me how to switch on/off...

We had booked a sea-view room. On reaching there we were given two options to choose from viz: New-Wing, Old-Wing. Although, New-Wing was recently renovated,its very far from the hotel lobby and requires min of 10 mins walk from the reception. Whereas the old-wing was easily accessible from the hotel Lobby, which we chose. The view was better from old-wing....

When we first arrived, I was a little disappointed that we were a little further from the town. But after the first evening I got over that and really began to love the place. It's private and quiet and has a romantic setting on the waterfront. It's not on a swimmable beach though. But just hire a scooter and discover...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Resorts World Langkawi is located 5 minutes away from the popular Cenang Beach and Tengah Beach, and approximately 15 minutes away from Langkawi International Airport. The seafront resort and marina overlooks east of Langkawi UNESCO Global Geopark, with the Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest as its backdrop and the sun rising along it. Peaceful and relaxing, the resort has finely furnished rooms and boasts spectacular and unobstructed views of the ocean, especially the newly renovated rooms of modern and functional design. Enjoy the convenience of our private jetty for activities like island hopping, private boat rides, sunset cruises and fishing. Intimate dining and walks along the boardwalk, or pampering at the recognized 5-star Javanese spa (Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa), are great options for couples.

Townsville, Australia

My husband and I were looking at booking our accommodation during our visit to Langkawi with you. However to do this we needed some information to enable the on line booking to be completed.

Please see the email he sent to you requesting certain information (Number 1) and also the automated response from your organisation (Number 2).

UNFORTUNATELY we are not able to book with you until we receive a personal response.

Number 1 ------------------Our email to you

Good day to you,

My wife and I are interested in visiting Langkawi and your hotel looks fine on the internet.

However I have several questions for you before booking.

1. We like the Sunset Cruise Package (cut/pasted below) however we wish to stay 4D3N (06Dec to 09Dec 2016). Is this package (inc cruise) available with the extra day?

2. If so can you give me a quote?

3. Is/can breakfast be included?

4. How do we get there from the ferry terminal (we’re coming from Penang)? (Shuttle? Cost?)

5. Being a multi-storey building is there lifts to the upper floor? We both have injured knees/legs and are recuperating and have great difficulty with stairs.

6. Is there internet or Wi-Fi available (and cost)?

Subject to your reply we will be happy to book 4D3N from 06Dec2016.

Kind regards

Mr & Mrs Garry Cahill
