Best Anniversary Ever”
Stayed here on 2-4th March to celebrate our 2nd anniversary and also to celebrate my birthday. At first I booked other beach hotel but after receiving bad recent comments i followed my instincts to change. Resorts World was our choice as we don't have a big budget and didn't disappoint us. It's a very beautiful Mediterranean seaside style hotel. We were greeted by friendly staffs and the best part the Manager (Teressa) upgraded our room with complimentary anniversary cake, fruits and decorated the rooms with heart shaped pillows and swan towel. I was overwhelmed! Room was spacious, big comfortable bed, room view was spectacular, breakfast was great and a lot of variety. We also took the romantic candlelight dinner by the deck, it was very romantic and lovely. Cons-TV not very clear, and you have to get to the other side (pantai cenang) to see the beautiful sunset. But overall everything was perfect! Thank you Teressa and Resort's World Langkawi for making our anniversary trip meaningful and awesome! Definitely will come in the future :) Tips : It's not a beach hotel, but more like a bayview hotel? Seaside with boat decks. Very beautiful view
Langkawi stay price-worthy”
We stayed in Langkawi for 2 days at Resorts World, Langkawi in a sea-view room. Amazing views from the room and a very peaceful environment. It has a wooden deck alongside the sea for walking and chilling out. Although, its at one end of Langkawi island, it is very close to the Cenang beach, which is a very popular destination. The hotel provides free pickup/ drop shuttle service from/to the Cenang mall at multiple times of the day. The staff is very courteous. They arranged a taxi for us for sight-seeing and we had a very good experience. The lady driver was very friendly and spoke fluent English, and planned our itinerary in the best possible way. Food at the hotel is a bit expensive. Overall, a very good experience. I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Langkawi.
Worth for Value to Stay”
Situated at end of Pantai Tengah (aka Tanjong Malai) with 5-10min driving time to reach tourist hotspot: Chenang Beach. Hotel provide shuttle service direct to/from Chenang Beach (drop/pick-up at Chenang Mall lobby) Private & quiet environment to rest & relax, with stunning seaview. Basic facilities i.e. pool & gym available in resorts. New renovated room at new wing building (room number start with 3XXX, 4XXX & 5XXX) very cozy, comfort and worth for value to stay! Convenience for island hopping activities too ($45 per pax direct to Maiden Pregnant Lake, Eagle feeding & Beras Basah Island) with hotel owned jetty & private boat, easy access when departure & arrival without join with outsider boat. Serve complimentary towel & water, with sincerely arrangement and privileges feel. Definitely come back RW Langkawi when visit again.
A Great Super Relaxing Stay”
Despite many bad reviews of this hotel I found online, I decided to give this place a shot and was I in for a surprise, coz I couldn’t find anything to complain about this awesome hotel. Stayed here for 3 nights from 13/12/2018 to 16/12/2018 and it was a great super relaxing stay for me and my wife. Everything was perfect especially the superb view (I Stayed At The Premier Seaview Room). Location wise, no problem for me coz I rented a car to move around Langkawi. Thank you for the great experience Resort World Langkawi. 4 thumbs up.
Excellent! We arrived at at 7pm and the check-in process was just quick. The room was spacious for 4 of us. The super kingsize bed and a sofa bed was comfortable enough for a nite stay. Most wonderful was the broad walkway that overlooks the ocean and islands. The food was generally OK, some were great. The surrounding was calm, quiet, and scenic. We hired a car so at night we went to Pantai Pasir Hitam - it was lively at night! There were many things to see and buy..and variety of foods from local to intertional to taste...and the Turkish kebab we bought at a small stall there was great! So did the icecream! We plan to stay in Resorts World Langkawi again in our next visit to Langkawi!
Great hotel great location”
The hotel is very strategically near Pantai Cenang. We hired a car and driving to Pantai Cenang was a breeze. The hotel is also very near the jetty for island hopping. So, although the children were wet from swimming at the islands, it did not take long for us to reach the hotel for a bath. The hotel is also near the Underwater World Langkawi and the duty free shops. Hence, we managed to do some last minute shopping before leaving Langkawi. The hotel also offers a good range of choices for breakfast. However, the choices of food for the buffet dinner was limited but children eat for free which is a very good deal.
Perfect place to stay in Langkawi; awesome place”
The location of the resorts is a perfect place with a serene view of the sea all the time; we had to check in early cos of change in flight timings by airlines however we were accommodated by the hotel staff within an hour. The hotel provides free shuttle service to Cenang mall area for duty free shopping after 2 hours till 9 pm. The rooms were clean and well furnished. The resorts has got very large property with calm atmosphere. The star cruise jetty is within the premise which helps in not wasting time to commute.Most of the tour operators provide free pick-up and drop to the resorts for any kind of package tour. I also chose to use the spa facilities available in the resorts for myself and my wife. Though the rates are much higher as compared to city however hygiene, safety and expertise of the staff can compensate for the price if one considers value of that. In fact, I could not avail the full service on one night which I had paid for as I was very late but to my pleasant surprise, the spa executive offered me to get the full massage completed on the second day without charging for it which is very rare in any of the places. Must give 100 marks for that. The complimentary buffet breakfast has got very large spread (almost a full lunch kind of buffet is provided). The hotel staffs are very attentive and display cheerful disposition all the time. I was also impressed with the fact that the taxi charges in langkawi are fixed which was explained by me a cab driver in very impressive manner. Same holds true whether you book from the airport or from the hotel. It is all same without adding any extra charges. Overall, I would say that it was a perfect holiday for me and my wife and a lot of credit goes to this resort and people there to make it memorable. P.S.: The duty free shops in the city are really cheap in case you want to buy liquor and chocolates; almost less than half rates than any duty free shop at the airports anywhere including KL/Langwaki
Great Hotel with Beautiful View & Value for Money”
We have just recently visited Langkawi and we spent 3Days 2nights at Awana Porto Malai. Since it is our first visit to Langkawi, we weren’t sure of which hotel to pick and after reading some reviews about few hotels, finally we booked Awana through Agoda. Upon arriving at the airport, we rented a car and by using GPS, it was quite easy to locate the hotel and it was about 20 minutes’ drive from the airport (very close to Underwater too). We wanted to check in around 2pm to have a warm shower before leaving to Oriental Village but too bad that our room wasn’t ready so we headed to Kuah Town for window shopping and we returned to the hotel around 3pm. We were given our room keys and escorted to our rooms. The room was very clean, very spacious and comfortable. It has a private balcony overlooking the sea and the view was breathtaking. It’s definitely an ideal place for couples. The deal that we bought comes with complimentary buffet breakfast. The food was just average and it can be improved with more variety and selection. Not forgetting to add on that the ambiance of the place was superb with great live band entertainment at the wooden verandah along the jetty during the night. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Awana Porto Malai very much and believed that we got our money's worth.
Annual Family trip”
Enjoyed stay at Resorts World Langkawi very much even though for 1 night only. Stayed 3 nights at Berjaya Resorts earlier and wonderful time at both hotels. Would definitely recommend Resorts World Langkawi every time as it is value for money and very clean. A bit disappointed as no bathroom accessories like shampoo, conditioner and bath gel. Convenient location as near to Pantai Cenang area as well.
Location Location Location - another great stay”
If you're looking for a quieter stay, with the option of dipping in and out of the resort that is Cenang beach front(12 RM by Taxi-station by the main gate, more if reception to book for you), you should consider this hotel. Better to hire car or motorbike as the location of this hotel is off the beaten track. It's not perfect but the good points definitely outweigh the negatives. Check in is at 3pm - irritating if you've come on the Penang ferry as it leaves you hanging around for a couple of hours. Take a cool drink and sit out on the deck while you wait - the views are very relaxing. Rooms are comfortable, with great pillows! Very clean and the Deluxe Seaview offers just that; the most beautiful views from sunrise to sunset . The pool area sits in the garden, we were lucky to see a couple of hornbills right there by the pool. Breakfast buffet is plentiful with a wide variety. Shock to see how gluttonous and wasteful some people are -children handling food and then putting it back on the buffet: not much the hotel can do about poor parenting but off putting for other guests. Maybe- no unaccompanied children at the buffet? We ate at the hotel on 3 evenings; 2 out of 3 meals were very good with great service, standard hotel prices. The 3rd meal was poor. Very slow service for drinks and poorly cooked meals: different staff from the other 2 evenings made a difference. Wi Fi charged by the hour or by the day and is pretty expensive; we were in Block 3 and signal was poor - impossible to use Skype. WiFi is a pre-requisite for most people - it's 2014 (!!!) and it certainly makes a difference to which hotel I chose. Many hotels offer free high speed internet and bury the cost elsewhere ..come on Resort World - sort it out! Special mention to Tracy who seems to be whipping reception into shape; great communication and service - just that great big smile makes all the difference.I love staying at Resort World and it remains my No 1 for Langkawi, I'll definitely be back!
Comfortable and nice view”
It was a really nice hotel to stay with. The workers in the hotel are quite friendly. However, I could see some abandoned corridor /area which the cleanliness need to be improved. It looked dirty when we passed by the place. In addition, we need to walk a long distance to block 4 from the lobby and it might cause some inconvenience to both my old parents who went together with us. Hope that Resorts World might find some solution to solve the problems, may be to have an additional lobby/entrance/lift at another side of the hotel in the future. I might choose to stay here when I come to Langkawi next time. Quite satisfy in overall.
Good and and nice with all accessories and fridge ”
located in a secluded corner of the famous Pantai Cenang on Langkawi Island, is just 15 minutes from Langkawi Airport. Peaceful and relaxing, the resort has finely furnished rooms and boasts spectacular and unobstructed views of the ocean, the surrounding islands, the gorgeous sunrise, or the well-manicured garden. 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
On our last trip to Langkawi, we stayed 2 nights at the Premier Seaview Room. Upon arrival, I was amazed by the romantic terrace of the hotel to the main building. Unfortunately, the KingSize room we had booked is not available, so we got the Twin Queensize instead. But the dissapointment was quickly washed away when we enter the room and saw the amazing stunningly view from our balcony. It was very romantic and I was suddenly speechless, it was soooo beautiful. On the second and last day, we conveniently hired a taxi from nearby taxi station and went to Telaga Tujuh, Cable Car, Wildlife Park, Eagle Square, Langkawi Parade, Tanjung Rhu, Pantai Tengah, and Pantai Cenang. The food was delectable, and seafood there was very fresh.
Nestled at literally the end of road at the far end of town this resort is just where it needs to be. Away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the main drag, but just minutes away from everything when you need to be. They run regular shuttles into town, but to truly make the most of this place you should get your own transport. A car is very cheap to hire (from memory we paid around $25 Australaian a day) from the airport and opens the island up for you. The roads are good and the traffic light, so for those a little nervous about driving fret not. The staff were very accomodating and friendly and was a range of facilities to use (my boys had me running on the treadmill each day, looking out to sea). The pool was big, complete with slide and the food in the restaurant had a fair selection of choices that compared well with other places in town (although I must admit to being disappointed at the food generally in Langkawi as it suffered from lazy cooking that tried to cater for every taste). The resort was a little tired and could do with a lick of paint here and there. The rooms were reasonably sized and clean, but I wouldn't say of five star quality. Still, when you considered the very competitive price we payed, the location and setting it would be my choice of place to stay if we were to visit Langkawi once again. Recommended for those with young families.
Superb room with great view”
We are given two adjacent room at non smoking floor. They are large, clean n very comfortable. Definitely value for money. The view fr the window is fantastic. I rented a car. There are many reasonable good Chinese reataurant along the pantai tengah, juz 5min drive. Very convenient. Though it might a bit too far if u try to walk. Pantai tengah ia a better place to stay compare to cenang, which us pretty rowdy n lots if construction along the road. One bad thing ia the hotel do not hv a beach. And forget about their private beach. It's full on stone. However, there are beautiful beach at lanai resort, juz 5min drive from the hotel. Very accessible. Do remember to visit 'boathouse restaurant' when u are there. The food is nice and the boss is friendly. Overall stay is good. I will go back there again if I plan to visit langkawi again
I stayed at the Resorts World Langkawi over Christmas 2019 with my daughter and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Staff are extremely friendly and made us feel welcome from the minute we checked in. Ideal location to stay and explore the rest of Langkawi. I would stay again without hesitation and recommend to friends and family. Thank you to all staff for a wonderful experience. Benson Gomez
Hi Benson, Thank you so much for your kind words. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. See you again soon! :) Socially Yours, RWL Social Care Team
Traveled with girlfriends-memorable and enjoyable stay”
We really enjoyed our stay. We booked garden view and we were given sea view (thank you so much resort world langkawi) which was really really beautiful especially the sunrise view. Location of the rooms might be a nit far from the reception area but that was not a big problem for us. Would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends. Btw, we were staying at the new wings.
Andaman Sea View”
This is my third time visit to Langkawi and stay at Resort World Langkawi. This Resort is always my Priority Selected / First Choice. The environment is quite surrounding and natural with ocean. Also, resort building is quite old and is a time to renovation guest room. I have enjoyed and enough to release my tension during my holiday period. Overall, I would like to say, this is Satisfied for me and looking forward improvement.
Lovely hotel & helpful staff”
we had a swift check in. the premier room was spacious with 2 double beds. fitted our family of four perfectly. the beds were well made with crisp clean white sheets and duvet covers. however only 2 towels were provided and they could only give us one extra bath towel (hotel policy, according to the staff). the air con was super efficient with additional ceiling fan. large lcd tv with ample tv channels. the lighting was poor resulting in a dimly lit room at night! location: short drive to nearby shops & foodstalls/ restaurants in pantai tengah & pantai cenang. not advisable to walk or cycle though as the road leading to the hotel is rather dark & quiet especially at night. there is a medium sized swimming pool with kids pool but no beach here unfortunately. this is the 3rd time i stay here since 2008 & i will stay here again in the near future.!
Lovely hotel. Lovelier staff”
We loved our 6 night stay at Resorts World. The hotel is a bit old fashioned but that just adds to its old world charm. The place is airy with the doors constantly open out towards the sea which surrounds one side of the hotel grounds. The place is away from everywhere but only a RM8 taxi ride to the golden Sands of Pantai Cenang. Breakfast, the pools, the location, the rooms, the staff....everything was great.
Take a look at these facilities:
