We just got back from a lovely and lively holiday in Langkawi. We stayed at The Andaman, luxury Collection. it was absolutely wonderful from the moment that we were picked from the airport to the time that we were dropped back to the airport. The journey started with a warm welcome at the airport by the hotel staff. The location is in the midst of 10 million years old rain forest, on one side it is open to Andaman sea and the other side is impenetrable forest. It is very rare and unique location. It takes about 40 minutes drive from the airport. The drive was amazing, the rich experience of driving through golf course and dense forest area to reach the hotel. The checkin was very smooth and cordial (advantage of being a lifetime gold member). We stayed in luxury pool access room – south wing. The staff, the room the pools and the relaxing atmosphere made this resort a place that we must return to. This is a resort to relax, swim, eat and drink.
There are four restaurants and a coffee shop, one of them is Japanese restaurant. To start with, the breakfast selection was like no other I have tried!. The selection and the options are wide and caters to different walks of life. Each item is delicious and lure you to taste everything. Coconut water goes very well with breakfast. Lastly, to conclude breakfast relish Masala Tea prepared by Ajay. This is not part of the menu and is freshly prepared upon request and is gratis.
We would like to thank four staff members Chef. Sankaran (who was very very accommodative to cook veg. meal for both lunch and dinner) He cooked delicious and hot meal everyday and the beauty is, he did not repeat the dish thoughout our stay. We strongly recommend guests to interact with him to relish the dishes he cooks. He is innovative. Second person is Mr. Alwyn, from concierge, he went out of the way to extend support and ensured our requirements are addressed. The third person is Mr. Vijay, Director, Finance, down to earth and radiates positive energy. He is a man of action and man of words. We have a special place for him for the gesture and Impeccable service extended, we are touched by his service and it will be remembered for a very long time. The fourth person is Mr. Jose Ignacio Carazo, he works at Malay restaurant facing the beach. Every evening he enquired about our well being and exchanged notes. Feel good factor interacting with him.
We would like mention another special person Mr. Selvam, has abundant knowledge on butterfly and has authored a book. It is worthwhile to invest time with him to know about butterflies and its lifecycle.
We were privileged to meet the above three staff members who were instrumental in making our holiday outstanding and ensuring our specific requirements are met to our satisfaction.
The entire staff were so friendly and helpful, the resort is so beautiful with many delights to explore. There are many different places around the resort to just sit, and be, and enjoy a unique view of this spectacular spot on our planet.
Definitely, will be back….
Finally, a suggestion to the management – kindly create a docket about the resort and the coral lab that you are promoting to balance the ecosystem. Also, the resort is in rain forest, introduce indoor sports and come up with innovative ideas to engage guests whenever it rains and otherwise too.
Tip of guests – The resort is safe and secure, enough care is take by the management to put in place safety measures. As the resort is in the middle of rainforest, at times, you may experience some sound, do not panic bring it to the attention of the staff, you are assured of the resolution.
