Our Journeys

Langkawi – Oh the Places we Stayed at!

by Sharm on September 22, 2015 , No comments

We stayed at three (yes, 3) different places during our 4 day & 3 night trip to Langkawi. Lugging our luggage from place to place, we roomed at:

  • Temple Tree at Bon Ton
  • Ambong – Ambong
  • The Gemalai Village

I think we may have to admit that we were a little semi kiasu (*kiasu – a hokkien term for ‘scared to lose’). Why only semi kiasu? My justification is that this ‘brainwave’ of staying at 3 different places did not occur to us until we could not stay at one of the locations we wanted for the 3 full nights. And only then did we say – ‘why not more locations?’

In hindsight, it may not have been the most well-thought out plan, but we did get a general overview of what accommodation Langkawi has to offer.

Since this is not meant to be a hotel review site (for that do proceed onwards to tripadvisor which does a pretty good job), do have a look through some of the photos we have compiled below…

*In the mean time we will be coming up with an internal pro/con list of our ‘brainwave’….

Our ‘to be filled’ pro/con list

… now should kiasu be on the pro or the con side of the list?

Temple Tree at Bon Ton

Concept: This 8 villa hotel is made up of antique building of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin.

Friendly feline companions all around the compound (there is an animal sanctuary nearby)

Ambong-Ambong

Concept: Secluded without being isolated – rooms surrounded by lush greenery though still fairly close to Pantai Tengah.

[This hotel was really close to the jetty for Rampant Sailing. The hotel staff were kind enough to give us a lift there in the morning.]

Price Range (*from hotel website at the time of blog post): RM 700 – RM1,200
