Would be great for a family. Pretty views and location across a harbour. A few kms from Cenang, but we knew that when booking. It would be a long walk, but doable (not at night). Wifi only in reception/lounge. Nice pool, nice place for an afternoon drink at the bar, clean good sized room with a great balcony (stay on...

We got a room here on a discount from Groupon. Half of me expected a disaster of a hotel, but the room was clean and airy and the decor was lovely. The bathroom was a little dated but clean. On the first day we noticed a small colony of ants had taken residence on one of our beds. Even though...

Day one, we'd booked a "garden view" but it was a view of the paring lot and a concrete ceiling. I'm not sure there is a garden there. I paid an extra 50rm a day for a new room facing the sea. This one was close to the lounge, and while it had gorgeous views it also had loud music...

We stayed there for two nights. The location is fabulous and the view spectacular! The rooms are somehow out of date. Neat, but a small toilet and separate bathroom where you hardly can enter because the doors open to the inside... The noise (of the generator or cooling motor?) was 24/7, even at the pool the noise is constant. A...

Room: One word to describe the hotel: OLD. We stayed in a seaview block 4 level 2 superior room (highest level). Block 5 was too close to the nightclub and get really noisy till wee hours in the morning.

Rooms are great. I stayed at a deluxe room and I could easily access the nearby sea by just opening the balcony door. However, the restraunts there have have egregious customer service. It took unusually long for my family's food to arrive and it was cold and bland when it came. I suspect that my food was set on the...

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. The hotel also provides free shuttle to Cenang Beach 5 times a day. The idyllic Resorts World Langkawi is perfect for travelers who appreciate scenery and romance, given peace and privacy away from busy tourist centers but at the same time mobility convenience at its doorstep. ... more   less

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
