Hotel Langkasuka Langkawi Reviews
Mehh.. :/ Jul 01, 2011
Hotel Langkasuka, Langkawi, Malaysia.. looks nothing like they show in their pictures on the website. The hotel building is combined with the largest mall in Langkawi. Being in the centre of the city, I'd consider it's location to be quite convenient.
Firstly, a deception- We had booked Langkasuka Beach Resort for our stay, but after reaching Langkawi, we were told the beach resort was closed down for renovation of some sort and hence we were given the reservation in Hotel Langkasuka. This information was not conveyed properly by the management. Later on, we learned that the beach resort was probably being sold.
Hotel Langkasuka was weird from the word go. The hotel has an entrance on the frontside as well as from inside the adjacent megamall. The car park for the hotel and the mall are combined into one building. The only way you could get back to the hotel was to go down the elevator from the garage, into the mall, and then the hotel. Not sure why they built it that way.
The one good thing about the room was that it was big and spacious. The room/bed was clean and we fortunately got a view facing half the ocean. The staff was alright, but it would help customers a lot if they learned to converse in basic English. Another quirky detail- the hotel does not provide bottled drinking water, even after we assured them that we would pay for those in our final bill!
Our breakfast was included in the package. Their offering were fairly basic (bread, butter, coffee, tea et al) which is great for foreign tourists. They also offered nasi goreng, the malaysian local favorite! I found it pretty delicious as well :) The breakfast area was in between the hotel lobby and the megamall, which was a bit awkward in my opinion.
Would I recommend this hotel? Maybe, maybe not. In the hindsight, I'd rather spend a little bit more and get a much better deal with other fantastic resorts in Langkawi.. after all, the only reason to fly to Langkawi is for a relaxing getaway. Unfortunately, this hotel wouldn't provide you with one.
