Choose both rainforest and beach
Langkawi is an archipelago consisting of numerous islands scattered on the Andaman Sea. Just because you’re staying on an island though, doesn’t mean you have to only stay on the beach. Langkawi has numerous hotels and resorts positioned on the water that are also surrounded by dense rainforest.
Stay at the Andaman and rest easy in spacious rooms and comfortable beds before heading out into the rainforest to scale the Skybridge and take in stunning views. The Sheraton Beach Resort is also nestled between rainforest and ocean, packing plenty of luxury into its contemporary rooms with private balconies and Jacuzzis.
Life’s better with a private beach
The only thing better about staying at beachside accommodation is staying at a resort or hotel with its own private beach. With so many smaller beach paradises, Langkawi is the perfect place for finding accommodation with a beach that only you and the other guests can use. This means less crowds and more space to relax and unwind.
The five-star Westin Langkawi Resort and Spa doesn’t rest on the laurels of its private beach, with extra amenities that contend for your attention. The Langkawi Lagoon Resort also stretches out from its own beach into the water, putting you as close as possible to the surface without getting you wet.
Explore surrounding islands from Pantai Tengah
Pantai Tengah only takes up about one kilometre of beach, but it's what’s nearby that is most impressive. From your hotel, you can cruise over to the nearby islands of Pulau Singa Besar and Pulau Dayang Bunting, which offer untarnished landscape and beautiful swimming spots. Back in Pantai Tengah you’ll also find some great restaurants amongst tropical vegetation.
For an affordable price, you can stay at The Villa Langkawi, the Green Village and the Sunset Beach Resort and experience charming rooms, great service and plenty of fun activities. For a bit more money, the Holiday Villa Beach Resort and Spa, the Aseania Resort and the Resorts World will leave you wishing you could stay for years.
