Decent place to stay for those on budget trip (Standard double room type)”
My wife and I stayed for 7D6N in double standard room. Pro: 1. Nice location at Pantai Tengah; away from the crowded area of Pantai Cenang 2. Easy to rent motorcycle and car as there was T-shoppe in front of the cottage for that purpose 3. Very reasonable price for that standard of accommodation, self-service concept 4. Refreshing nature sound (cricket, frog) at night 5. Very friendly & helpful staff who always smiling and provide reasonable suggestion on what to do in Langkawi Con (wrt double standard room type): 1. Not suitable for those who seek for luxurious place to stay as everything here will be done by yourselves 2. Room size was quite small with less space to walk, pray (prayer room was provided separately) and store your luggage (in case your luggage is huge). 3. Only towels, soap and toilet tissues were provided; the rest can be obtained on rental basis (eg. mini fridge, hairdryer, extra fan) or can be purchased at T-shoppe in front of the cottage 4. The room can be quite hot by the day as only 1 stand fan was provided. Sleeping at night won't be a problem except for the mosquitoes (mosquito liquid repellent and net can be rented) 5. Facilities provided should be clearly mentioned to guest prior checking in. There was a manual-type of notice pasted in our room stated that bathoom service is available for guest staying more than 3 nights. Based on only that phrase, my understanding was I can request my toilet to be cleaned as I am staying 6 nights there. However, the receptionist told me that that term refer to the outdoor bathroom that can be used by guests to clean themselves after bathing at the beach even after they check out. This somehow create confusion and slightly ruin the holiday mood as we are expecting that kind of service when we read the notice. Conclusion: Recommended to be one of the choices for your budget stay in Langkawi. Nice location, friendly staff. Kudos T-Star Cottage for your services :)
Full immersion in nature”
T Star Cottage finds itself in a fascinating location: close to the quieter corner of Pantai Tengah, almost immersed in a jungle populated with groups of monkeys raiding the bungalows every now and then. It's the place to be if you want a quiet stay, listening to the sounds of nature. Due to the density of the chalet planning, however, sometimes - if the neighbor isn't as silent as you are - the situation may lack of intimacy. There are also lots of mosquitos - come prepared with repellent spray and / or rent a mosquito net at the reception! All in all, however, considering also the low cost of the hotel, it's incredible value for money. Definitely recommended!
Beautiful Hotel in a great location!”
Our stay at the T-star Cottage was excellent. We stayed here for 6 nights and had a really comfortable experience. Located minutes away from the main strip with tons of restaurants and bars and duty free shops to choose from. The beach was also minutes away. which was really convenient. We found it necessary to rent a scooter for this island, and T-star had a scooter rental shop with discounts for those staying at the t-star cottages. It was a great deal. There is a great breakfast restaurant literally 2 minutes walking distance away and an endless variety of food nearby. We would highly recommend T-star to anyone looking to explore the flavors of Langkawi and looking for a relaxing stay.
I extended four times”
I loved T Star Cottage. I extended four times. The price was low for what you get -- a private cottage with your own bathroom and a small porch. All cute and tastefully done. The room was small, no hot water, and the porch was tiny -- but at this price I felt like I had a bargain. The landscaping has a lot of greenery. Every cottage has its own fish pond in front. Monkeys run freely and add local colour. My only real complaint is with the WiFi. It's quite good in the lobby area but only adequate in the cottages. When I go back to Langkawi, I will head straight for T Star!
Tropical Resort near the Beach”
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at one of their cute room, on the upper floor (our room had air-conditioning). It's ideal for couples and backpackers travelling with friends and family, especially if sharing the same little 'house-like' structure. The interior and exterior reflects some of the local Malay culture in arts, with the toilets designed to be like that of a Balinese bathroom over looking the forest. The privacy of your own balcony area to chill and hangout at the rattan day-bed-chair with white cushions on top). You will also have a chance to observe the troop of monkeys from the forest! Just do not leave your bags or food items outside at the balcony area (one of the cheeky ones took my water bottle). We loved the concept that T-Star had, a tropical paradise yet at the coastal area. Walk to the beach was only 5 minutes away & right in front of the area. Transportation rental from their kiosk just at the entrance of the hotel also makes travelling around and exploration of the island easier. Motorcycles and car rental prices are good (helmets also provided for motorcyclists). The hotel is situated in a nice quiet area (Tengah Beach), with the more happening at Cenang Beach...allowing us to have the best of both worlds and come back to relax in the quieter environment. Only improvement needed: hot/warm showers. We definitely would recommend this to couples and backpackers for a nice tropical stay by the coast.
Super place -- I extended twice”
I can't say enough good about T Star. Very cute cottages. Soft mattresses. Comfortable pouches on the cottages. Fish ponds and greenery everywhere. I extended my stay twice. Location is not great. It's on the edge of things. But for the price, I am not complaining. The WiFi is quite good in the lobby area, passable on the porch attached to your cottage, and lousy in the room. That is the ONLY reason I marked 'Facilities' down to 4 stars. Highly recommend !!!
Basic cottages near Pantai Tengah”
Basic but lovely and clean cottages just 5 min walk away from Pantai Tengah beach. Friendly staff and plenty of good, affordable restaurants around. Some people might complain about the self-service concept, but for us it was more a matter of trying to keep the room tidy and clean so we didn't have a hard time cleaning it up at the end of our stay. Would recommend to fellow travelers!
budget but CLEAN & GOOD”
Small and Budget yet so good to be TRUE.... - fairly good WIFI.. - they have their own mini-market just in front of their cottage ( good enough to get you everything you need ) - you can also have special price for renting their scooters or cars - in the cottage itself there are tours to book too ( not too bad i think, saves you the time to find around ) - they also have a bird feeding area where you can touch and feed them ( so cool isn't it !!?? ) - ponds outside your room, so you can hear the crickets and frogs sing at night - VERY CLEAN! - VERY FRIENDLY STAFF - good food walking distance - very near to underwater world, cable car ( which has also 3D art museum + many more stuff there ), georpark, Cenang Beach, Tengah Beach, a few malls and many more Over all , we love it!!
Glamping Garden at a Low Price”
My friends and I stayed in the tents for 2 nights. The garden ambient is really nice, it really gives that camping in the middle of the forest kinda feels. Really really love the birds house - waking up to their tweeting was a bless. Located roughly 10 mins walk to Pantai Tengah which currently packed with development of new hotels and residences and 20 mins walk to Pantai Cenang (take the road between Underwater World and Langkawi Dormitorio) - the most happening beach in Langkawi. You can rent a scooter as low as RM35 a day here from the detached convenient store/travel agent which is reasonable. My only complain is...I think it is time to upgrade the sharing toilet/shower to a permanent one rather than using a modified portable toilet/shower. The portable one is rather a bit too crampy and incomplete. Lastly, if you are kinda guy who prefer just to stay in the room during the day, you might find the tent a bit warm and stuffy. Overall for the price, it was worth it.
Mosquitoes and no AC aside, it was a perfect stay”
T Star Cottage can be memorable when visiting Langkawi. The hotel is very nice, with all its bungalows in line, nice garden and cool monkeys hanging around, but unfortunately has two anoying problems...no AC, only fan(big problem at night) and many mosquitoes. You can rent a mosquito net on the reception, along with all other things you may need, like towels, soap, etc. You get what you payed for, everything is extra. The Pantay Cenang beach is 10 min walking distance from the hotel, but the best way to visit the island is to rent a motorbike and just...enjoy the view, the beaches and waterfalls. Right next to the hotel there's a T Star shop where you can rent it and also buy food, since there's no breakfaast included and the majoroty of the restaurants tend to be a bit expensive.
NEED SOAP, SHOWER GEL & SHAMPOO”
I stayed T Star Cottage in 2016 and this year (2018). In 2016 I stayed on the upper floor and this year on the ground floor. Upper floor allowed you to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery but limited space, while on the ground floor additional backyard are available. The toilets are clean and well decorated, unfortunately, T Star Cottage not provided any toiletries (no soap, no shower gel, and no shampoo). Fan provided is quite slow as well, the room heated up especially on the evening onwards. Overall, T Star Cottage is a cozy place to stay.
I keep coming back; Now I bring my friends”
When I come to Langkawi, I don't even look at other places. I look at T Star first. I've come back at least a dozen times. That says it all. I should point out that there is a mistake on their website. Their site says that there are single beds in the economy rooms. That's not true. Their economy rooms have double beds!
Hi, Sorry about misunderstanding with different for double and single bed. We already change. Thanks for your cooperation.
like a home”
hi every one this hotel t-star in my best place in Langkawi this is my 2nd-time stay in here very good staff and helpful to round the clock and very cleanness value for money and full security and good location. I recommended to these hotel ones you go after you will enjoy really I upload videos on youtube
Cabane in the trees”
Simple and clean that was exactly what we were looking for. Hidden in the trees, we spend an enjoyable time at T Star Cottage. Good restaurant and scooter rental at our door step. Only weak point: Neighbours chatting on their balcony at night :(
A pleasant place to stay”
We had a wonderful stay at T Star. It's so green and quiet, new and beautifully designed. Our room was ground floor with a fan with a bed facing the garden. On arrival you get towels, soap, toilet paper, all your bed linen and free room cleaning service every three days. There's also free hot and cold drinking water at reception. The cottage opens out onto a big balcony surrounded by lush plants. Our room was well sealed and the staff spray the grounds twice a week against mosquitoes. The fan rooms can get very hot and stuffy so you do need to leave them open as much as possible to air them out.
small heaven between the hill and the sandy beach”
had a great time staying in T Star.. its a small cottage hotel but offers you more then what you bargain for. really enjoyed its rain shower. the tranquility and fresh air that came for near by hill was nice. early in the morning, you'll be greeted by bunch of monkeys.. cool air and the sandy beach just stone throw away.. its paradise for sure.
Lovely stay in a perfect environment”
Our stay was wonderful, we booked for two nights but stayed five and would have stayed longer if our plans would have let us! It is like you're in another place when you enter, close to the rain forest, monkeys running around, the cottages are simple but really nice and have enough room for two people. The bathroom is big, new and clean. The little details make it look luxury, like if you're in a five star resort! The veranda in front makes it feel homey. The staff is friendly and helpful. Yes you have to pay extra for some things but the price is so low that it's nothing compared to the full price of other accommodations. We would definitely come back if we visit Langkawi again!
Highly recommend this place! ”
We originally booked to stay just a few nights but enjoyed it here so much and the local surroundings we extended our stay.....Twice!! The staff are friendly and very helpful, they have washing facilities and the accomodation is very clean with soap and towels provided! It's in a GREAT location, 5 mins walk from the beach and plenty of market shops/places to eat and enjoy some music in the evening very near by if you wish to. The tents are lovely to stay in but bare in mind the showers are in portaloos (they are clean though) and the other cabin style accomodation have their own showers/bathroom. You also get a discount when hiring a car/bike from T shoppe which is just outside the accomodation if you mention you stay here! :) Will deffinitely stay here if I return to Langkawi again!
For the village type lover, this is the most suitable place to Stay in Langkawi. Cheap, easy access to Pantai Tengah
A place to blend into nature”
I come to Langkawi on 4/2014. That is my first time travel abroad alone. First, I didn't expect too much on this guesthouse, because its price is so cheap. However, when I receive my room, I was so surprised because it so neat and nice. Especially the bathroom, so nice. Clean, peaceful and blending into nature (you can see monkeys everywhere). It's the perfect place for lonely tourist, who want to find a separate place to think and to relax. One minus point is that it's a little bit far from the centre. P.S: Don't even try to use fan-room to save money. The climate of Langkawi is extremely hot on summer. At that time, if you don't have an air-con, you will become a dish of BBQ. Moreover, in my opinion, upper floor rooms is better.
