Outside the main hotel building, you’ll also find villas – one, two and five bedroom villas, all with private swimming pools. Of course, every standard of room features cable TV, air conditioning, enormous ensuite bathrooms, luxurious bedding, and internet access.

Casa Del Mar, Langkawi – The Casa Del Mar is another stunning resort hotel on Langkawi Island. The Casa Del Mar features junior and deluxe suites with either ocean views or pool views, but every room is decorated in contemporary Malaysian style, that’s so luxurious yet still comfortable. Wonderfully, it’s also a small hotel with only 20 rooms, so it’s quiet and friendly too.
Each room features air conditioning, cable TV, plasma screens, mini bar, hairdryer, and either private balconies or patios. There’s an incredible spa at the hotel with every popular spa treatment, a state of the art gym, and many beach activities you can participate in.
The hotel offers incredible buffet breakfasts out on the patio overlooking the ocean, candle lit beach side dinners, and restaurants serving snacks, light meals and full luncheons and dinners.

Temple Tree at Bon Ton – Just about the most unusual resort hotel on Langkawi, Temple Tree at Bon Ton is located in 100 year old heritage buildings you’ve got to see to believe. Every room is decorated with stunning antique furniture and floor tiles, as well as old hardwood floors.
There are 13 suites, 12 rooms and eight villas in varying styles, but all are beautifully decorated in Chinese, Malay or Colonial style. Interestingly and unusually, if you want to stay in one of the villas, you don’t have to rent the whole thing either, as you can rent individual rooms in each villa, depending on availability.
The hotel has a lovely albeit small swimming pool, and there’s a restaurant, a bar, a library and pool tables, where you can relax, eat or just enjoy a quiet afternoon or evening drink. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the calmness of the property makes it a wonderful place to get away from it all.
