I had a great experience at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food/drinks were great at a very reasonable price and the beach area was beautiful - surprisingly to me most people chose to sit by the various pools when there was an amazing beach to sit by! All the better for me!
The rooms were spacious, well designed and had everything you need for a good stay. A lick of paint in a few corners required, but to me this was not an issue. Shower & bed were great.
The hotel is walking distance to the nearby town which has a nice park and a few chain coffee shops & ice cream places - it's very geared to tourists, but worth a look.
The hotel is located in the town area and provides very much a local experience. We felt very safe for our teenage daughters to wonder around and even in the night. The staff particularly the reception and kitchen staff were amazingly friendly and helpful
lovely resort, with good service, breakfast, pool. Pool was closed all morning till 2pm when it was hot and lots of kids not being able to swim. Great to have free parking, taxis there if you need them. Bed was hard, I mean starchy hard and we found it difficult to sleep the first night we had sore bodies. Shower was great big shower head. Over all lovely place.
The check in was smooth. The buffet style breakfast included was fine. Wifi need to pay extra for so be warned. Otherwise you can just use your own data which is likely cheaper if you get a local sim card. There are enough stores around to buy stuff or have food to eat if need be. Parking is easy. Only thing is that the towels once taken away are not replaced may be I am spoiled by North American standards.
HIG is a new tall building with massive sign that it is easy to find. Location is convient with petrol station, a small shopping mall and restaurants around.
Parking is easy. Staffs are very friendly and helpful.
Room is readonably clean and the bed is king size. Overall, it is good value for money.
The best resort we stayed throught out our trip... We stayed in a Longhouse which has a varanda opening to the swimming pool.. The room is really luxurious with amenties like TV, fridge,sofa sets, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, shower caps etc.. They give complementary breakfast which is buffet and you will love it.. They also gave us an organic their factory made products such as moisturiser and a skin whitening cream as complenetary and organic / healthy welcom drink too. their location does not have beach but faces to a shallow part of ocean.. they have parking spaces too.
From langkawi airport you can get a car hired for rental and drive to hotel.. it took around 15-20min max for us to reach there. Roads are awesome in langkawi and no traffic at all.. All together rated 5 from my side.
The hotel appears not to have been refurbished for some time. The decor and furnishing feel old, but otherwise the hotel is fine in its price range. It is however close to the main mosque (Al-Hana Mosque), which does mean it may disturb your sleep with its calls to prayer for those who are not Muslim or who are not used to the calls (however it did not appear to be too loud). The staff were friendly, pleasant and helpful. It has a restaurant but its offering was rather limited during my stay, and could really do with a few more choices. Overall there was nothing seriously wrong to complain about, but nothing to rave over either. It had been a functional but pleasant stay for me.
Kuah, in southern Langkawi, is the main gateway to the islands by boat, and houses the largest ferry terminal in the region. This former fishing village is a duty free port known for its shopping, which ranges from traditional street markets to modern shopping malls such as Sumadra Centre.
