Historical Traveller Reviews of Westin Langkawi Resort and Spa Hotel
Still a great hotelfrom Noodlesetc
Efficiently Runfrom Vardomannen
A good value resortfrom UKTAdvisor
The gardens and pool areas are very beautiful, the beach not bad. I was slightly disappointed that the beach furniture was a bit worn, and the matresses seemed in need of washing as well. We did visit during the rainy season so this may have accounted for this fact.
Breakfast consisted of a very good buffet in the restaurant below the reception area. The only negative aspect at breakfast was that the restaurant was not air conditioned and when we visited it was very humid.
During the evenings we dined on two occasions at the hotel's Sambar Rio 'beach' restaurant. The food served here was excellent, very reasonable & had a varied menu. The portions were of a good size as well. We found the service very good, with friendly attentive staff.
One night we took the 45min taxi journey to the Datai hotel for dinner which was a change and well worth the journey.
The perdana is Greatfrom Sydboy
The outlook from the hotel is just amazing and the pools and services are brilliant. You will enjoy it for sure and when they upgrade to the Westin next year I great thing will only get better.
The Perfect Placefrom A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel would have one of the best pool areas we have ever experienced, and the 30% happy 2 hours at the Pool bar was just magic,A tremendous place to meet new people from all around the world.
Buffet breaskfast catered for every taste and was outstandingly prepeared.
Rooms were large and tidy , but will need a spruce up sooner or later.
The best place to relax and get some rest!!!from ann_oll
We were given a sea view room with additional views of the ocean pools as well and ordered our first meal of the day using room service shortly afterwards. The service was prompt and the food was great.
After taking a short nap, we decided to explore the area. The beach is lovely, loads of crabs come out late in the evening which is fun to watch. There's also a private jetty where you can dine, a water sports center, a gym (this one is really equipped), aerobics studio, tennis courts (with rackets and balls for hire) and a table tennis set. You can also hire bicycles as well. Every night, the chef and his team come up with a different set of dishes - some of which are served by the pool as well. Basically, your only problem would be finding the willpower to leave the resort in order to see the rest of Langkawi cos' everything you need is there and I must say at a very high standard.
If you go to the link below, I can confirm that all the pictures shown are a TRUE representation of how things are - it really is that ideallic!!!
The staff are extremely helpful - if you ask for something and they don't have the information to hand, he/she still takes ownership of the problem. You don't get them redirecting you to someone else which is what you tend to get with other hotels. Overall, I'd say the reason why this hotel is really good is that service is done at a personal level - you're not treated as a person renting a room but like a person they're happy to have round. You really get your money's worth.
I'd quite happily visit this resort again - no questions asked.
Peaceful, invigorating, relaxingfrom Rook3rs
The room was of a suitable size with adequate amenities.
The restaurants provided an excellent variety of food at very reasonable cost and the breakfast buffet was substantial.
With the garden area, two pools plus a children`s pool, and the beach within a few minutes of the room, this led to a relaxing and refreshing holiday. The hotel was quite quiet and there was plenty of space around the pools.
The attentiveness and friendliness of the staff was wonderful and they always spoke and smiled whenever you met them.
The shops of Kuah are only a $2 ride away.
Although the hotel is being refurbished and becoming a Westin, it is to be hoped that none of its present character will be lost.
This is a hotel which is excellent for a short, invigorating break from everyday life.
Fantastic, if u want to just relax n breathe...from yatirahmat
We were lucky we got the Spa wing, so every day there was this aromatherapy in the air-it was gorgeous!hmmmm, I can still remember the scent, just so so relaxing as we walk thru the corridor to our room..
We paid 3 times more in Sheraton than what u wud hv if u stayed in Awana, for eg, but it was definitely a difference in what u pay for. If u asked me, I think it was worth it!Oh if it wasnt for my 3 kids who had so much energy in them, I would be just lazying around at the balcony, enjoying my sea view and listening to the waterfall.....It was just so, so fantastic!
The only thing that was dampening was that we lost our kids' floaters at the swimming pool, even when we asked reception/pool boy to keep it for us(since we saw it at during breakfast, but cudnt get it since it was raining) but still, till the day of us leaving, they said they dont hv it..so that was disappointing. We thought that they'd do more for us...in that sense we feel that they just dont really care abt smaller details...I think the reception girls are nice, but in a non-genuine kind of way, it just gives me that vibes. Where as the bell boys, they are the best! They seem so sincere in their smiles, their assistance, u'd like them.
YOu MUST stay there if u want complete relaxation. However, we didnt go down to the beach, since most of the time it was raining, so we cant comment. The hotel itself was just so so so relaxing! We loved it! There were 3 pools!
All in all, it was a great place to stay in. I wud definitely go there again, maybe this time just me and hubby..
One of the best on Islandfrom raffelsia
N.B. Langkawi cable car is a must see.. don't forget to cross the bridge between the mountains..
not what we had expected.from telis
