Thank you for making our honeymoon the best experience.”
the candle light dinner, the good dinner, good breakfast buffet, we played table tennis at night, beautiful sunset, helpful staff when we have difficulty during check in, nice outdoor shower and spacious room.
Dear Nazibah, Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our clean comfortable Garden Villa with garden inspired outdoor shower, the daily sunsets we get at the resort and our wide spread breakfast buffet. Our continental restaurant tries to cater to all the needs of our diverse guest origins. We are also glad the services of our competent staffs and facilities of our resort were to your satisfaction. We hope you had a memorable honeymoon and hope your next visit with your better half will be as pleasant as the previous one. Best wishes, The Frangipani Langkawi Resort & Spa
Most friendly and accomodating staff I've ever encountered. Thumbs up!
The staff were exceedingly responsive to any issues we brought up (eg. air conditioning not working and fixing it within 30 minutes!). The amount of thought and effort into being eco-friendly went above and beyond anywhere else!
Dear Su-Ting, Thank you for taking your time to review us. We are pleased to know that the services rendered by our approachable-competent staffs were to your satisfaction. It’s definitely a boost for us every time we hear positive reviews such as this. Our staffs are always eager to please and are important to the hotel operations. We adore your appreciation on our green initiatives. Hope you had a chance to join our complimentary Eco-Walk to see some of the 300 green practices that we do at the resort. We are also the only resort in Malaysia to treat our grey water with a plant system into grade A drinking water which we then use to water our plants. Most island resorts impact the marine life by discharging its waste water direct into the sea. We have had hundreds of schools, NGOs and ministries come to do our eco walk every year. We hope you had a memorable stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you and your loved one at the resort again. Best wishes,
Beautiful vacation resort.”
The rooms might be a bit outdated, but in return you get a natural landscape setting far beyond any designer hotel. The enclosed outdoor shower was a hit. Staff were always friendly and helpful. The restaurant tempted us to spend the evenings in the resort although there are many good opportunities in the neighbourhood. The beach comes close to what you would expect from a tropical dream island, never over crowded, plus offering jet boats, para-sailing and other activities nearby.
I like it and will recommend it”
Not your usual resort. Great escape from the hustle and bustle. Very green resort - with the most amount of greenery at any resort I have been so far. Dont expect the usual hotel service. Be prepared for a more laid back style of holiday - in a good way. I enjoyed the food, I enjoyed the pool and the beach is just nice. Highly recommend the garden villa room as they make you feel at home. The staff are very good and competent and speak good English. I like how the manager is always involved in daily managing of things on the ground level. I really enjoyed my time there.
Pros: - facilities are amazing. I loved the private beach, jacuzzi pool, all the different swimming pools, kids play area and more. - staff were very friendly and helpful. Very well presented and always smiling. - place is very clean and I love the eco side of the whole thing. They reuse rain water and have solar panels on their roofs. - outside my room there was a jasmine tree which brought in the lovely aroma to our room. Cons: - seriously none. Definitely would come back here again.
I like the Frangipani very much. Its a reasonably priced 4 star property on Pantai Tengah that is convenient for most things I want to do in Langkawi without the hustle and bustle of nearby Pantai Cenang. There are some good bars and restaurants around within easy walking distance. The hotel is set in sprawling well-maintained gardens as a collection of double and single story villas. Hot water is from solar panels and you are encouraged to reuse towels and bedding if they are not dirty. Helpful smiling staff and a tour desk that will arrange any excursion you want. Plenty of car parking but every grab car driver knows it and I have given up renting cars nowadays as you can call a taxi to anywhere on the island and it arrives within 2-3 minutes. TV channels are limited but there are news, sports and movie channels in English. Free WiFi speed is good for e-mails and web surfing but I havn't tried it on video. The management leaves a few cans of complimentary soft drinks
More than we expected”
I read many reviews and also looked at many other resorts in the area, we dont expect much as beside good reviews there are still some bad reviews about the facilities and staffs. But when we arrived i felt like they made some changes (from the bad reviews), room was big and valued for the price, private beach view was very nice, i was very lucky with the view for sunset with a red sky. The pool also very clean, and they offerred free all snacks and 2 cokes including 4 pure water bottles, very nice and reasonable. The staffs also know how to smile and help, far better than most of the Malaysians staffs we've seen from KL airports to Langkawi. Cant complain anything!
We loved the proximity to the water and salt pool. It was easy to get to different day activities, such as jet skiing. We took a tour of the surrounding islands by jet ski, highly recommend! The food options are limited, but across the street are variety of places to try. It is a relaxing resort, but a bit dated and in need of some TLC.
Dear Caitlyn, Thank you for taking your time to review us. We are glad you enjoyed the resort’s tranquil yet central beach side location with its semi-private beach five minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Pantai Cenang and connects to many international and local eateries, as well as shopping spots. We appreciate your valuable feedback as it helps us identify the areas we can improve the guest experience. Thank you and looking forward to welcoming you again soon. Best wishes, The Frangipani Langkawi Resort & Spa
Relax, friendly, environment friendly, great location ”
Location is great, close to most of the attractions, restaurant, airport. Hotel staff Super friendly. Relax, quite, nice breakfast. Pool view at sunset is amazing but the pools are bit small. Gym room is very simple, shower is quite cold. In general, our family enjoyed our stay a lot, although the hotel fee is at high side. Like to go back again next time.
Good location, public beach outside the main strip, so fairly quiet”
Place was nice and right on the beach... good place for kids to enjoy the sun and the beach... some activities for kids to break the beach time into smaller sessions. Ocean is warmer than the pool though, which can be a bit of an issue if you don't want the sand and mud that comes with Langkawi beaches... the pool can feel quite cold in the tropical temperatures. And whatever you do, stay away from the food at the resort, it is simply not good and there are a lot of very good options only 5 minutes walk away... drinks are not much better. Staff is very friendly and helpful though and the owner is hands-on, which makes a lot of difference in a place like this. Would highly recommend the Frangipani as a destination.
Ok hotel but tired - better options along the beach”
Great location in a relaxed garden style setting on the beach. Hotel in desperate need of an overhaul though, very tired looking and not the cleanest. Get your drinks and food elsewhere as most expensive hotel along the strip.
Spent 6 nights...had everything we needed...everything worked well (wifi, hot water, a/c, hair dryer)...room was spacious and very clean (loved the outdoor shower, which is partially covered)...lots of choices for breakfast...lovely sandy beach and not crowded, which is why we chose this resort...lots of restaurants nearby...walk into Cenang approx. 15 min...staff were so friendly
Short Stop, lovely location”
The best part about The Frangipani is the people, really caring and attentive, from front of house, to cleaners to the very attentive security team. A bit pricey, but worth it to be on the beach and a little way away from the main town (which is a nice 15 min gentle stroll away). Recommend for couples and also for families with kids, not a massive amount for the kids to do, but a couple of different small pools plus a beautiful sandy beach.
Lovely beach location. Comfortable rooms. Excellent buffet breakfast. Environmentally conscious. Limited restaurant meals - meals and drinks listed were often not available. 1.2kms walk to town but ‘Grabs’ are readily available.
Great location yet secluded enough for a peacefule vacation”
- Friendly and helpful staff (very critical esp if you are traveling solo) - Great location with a private beach and beach chairs - Water sports kiosk on the property with rates comparable to free market - Couple of Trip-Advisor Top 5 restaurants right across the street - Close enough to the main beach Pantai Cenang to walk it (12 minutes)
Experience not aligned with the price ”
Considering we paid 4-5 star hotel prices for a garden villa the facilities and the overall experience are 3 star at best. Rooms are pretty basic, AC is either freezing or off. Bathroom dirty with lots of ants. The bath was filthy. The towels are thread-bare. All the things you would expect at a 3 star resort. On the positive side, the food is good, breakfast buffet was great, the staff were helpful (albeit a bit confused sometimes). Beach is lovely and a few bars and restaurants nearby (but not much)
We had a good stay for 4d3n. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast with variety of choices. Pool and beach are relaxing. The beach has a great sunset view. The staff were friendly and attentive. Love the place and would revisit.
The location is very good rooms were big and clean, highly recommended if travelling with young kids. All staff were excellent and super helpful and friendly. The breakfast had a lot of options. The pool was great, and the swimming pool kept the kids happy. will book same Hotel when come back to Langkawi :)
Excellent experience. We extended for an additional 6 nights. Short walk to the shops and restaurants in Chenang beach area, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Great view from our second floor room with balcony facing the ocean. Nice beach, but suffers from global epidemic of plastic pollution. Resort is doing its bit to keep green.
