1. Location: This hotel is at the end of the road, isolated. The place is kinda dull. No activities. No beach. If you want night life, find a hotel on cenang beach. It is really havoc and alive. But also lots of constructions going on. 2. View: We booked two rooms. One with sea view. One with garden view. And...

Well I've only been here a short while but our room is spectacular. Yes it's slightly older but it's huge & has a bathtub ( which is a must for small kids. The staff were super friendly & efficient at check in & upgraded us to sea view. So far so good!

Its a place worth staying.. away from the bz beaches but still near enough if you feel like going there.. if u decide for island hopping, the jetty is just beside this place.. the renovated rooms are roomy n super clean..

We just got in so I can't say much yet. But the staff at the reception (Diana) were amazing! Super courteous and so friendly. Upgraded us for free. So far it looks fabulous. Breakfast is buffet style. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Another review in 2 days.

As people say in the reviews, rooms are too old & require a lot of renovation. I stayed for 8 nights. I am happy with the location & views. It has the potential to be the best in the region. It as the mesmerising views of the mountain/sea that cannot be forgotten. Room & restaurant service is a let down....

We really enjoyed our stay there! We knew that there was no beach but as we intended to rent a motorbike (the hotelstaff helps you get one) we didn't care. It's a bit a pricey hotel but we got an ocean view room instead of our normal room as we chose to stay in one of the "not yet renovated"...

The hotel is undergoing a major renovation when we were staying towarda end of Dec 2016. The room we stayed in was newly refurbished so it was nice despite quite a long walk to reach there from the lobby. The blocks nearer to the lobby have yet to be refurbished. The pool for kids has a slide and a few...

It has been a great stay for 3 nights @ RWL. Nice sea view. Very helpful staff. They did their best to make our stay (with a two years old kid) easy and smooth. Upgraded our room without any extra payment as our booked room was not ready to check-in. Try newly renovated rooms, though a bit far from lobby....

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights. The room had a splendid view but that's probably the only thing that is splendid about it. We were in a renovated room so it was clean and in good condition. The shower water pressure was very poor and we were told that we had a limit of 3 towels a...

What a bad experience and never again! It started all wrong. It's very isolated from the beach and there is no beach at all. You have a shuttle driving back and forth to the nearest beach at 10 min drive, but it's unreliable and not frequent. I should have checked before. My mistake! The check-in starts at 15:00 but I...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Resorts World Langkawi is located 5 minutes away from the popular Cenang Beach and Tengah Beach, and approximately 15 minutes away from Langkawi International Airport. The seafront resort and marina overlooks east of Langkawi UNESCO Global Geopark, with the Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest as its backdrop and the sun rising along it. Peaceful and relaxing, the resort has finely furnished rooms and boasts spectacular and unobstructed views of the ocean, especially the newly renovated rooms of modern and functional design. Enjoy the convenience of our private jetty for activities like island hopping, private boat rides, sunset cruises and fishing. Intimate dining and walks along the boardwalk, or pampering at the recognized 5-star Javanese spa (Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa), are great options for couples. The hotel also provides free shuttle to Cenang Beach 5 times a day. The idyllic Resorts World Langkawi is perfect for travelers who appreciate scenery and romance, given peace and privacy away from busy tourist centers but at the same time mobility convenience at its doorstep. ... more   less

Townsville, Australia

My husband and I were looking at booking our accommodation during our visit to Langkawi with you. However to do this we needed some information to enable the on line booking to be completed.

Please see the email he sent to you requesting certain information (Number 1) and also the automated response from your organisation (Number 2).

UNFORTUNATELY we are not able to book with you until we receive a personal response.

Number 1 ------------------Our email to you

Good day to you,

My wife and I are interested in visiting Langkawi and your hotel looks fine on the internet.

However I have several questions for you before booking.

1. We like the Sunset Cruise Package (cut/pasted below) however we wish to stay 4D3N (06Dec to 09Dec 2016). Is this package (inc cruise) available with the extra day?

2. If so can you give me a quote?

3. Is/can breakfast be included?

4. How do we get there from the ferry terminal (we’re coming from Penang)? (Shuttle? Cost?)

5. Being a multi-storey building is there lifts to the upper floor? We both have injured knees/legs and are recuperating and have great difficulty with stairs.

6. Is there internet or Wi-Fi available (and cost)?

Subject to your reply we will be happy to book 4D3N from 06Dec2016.

Kind regards

Mr & Mrs Garry Cahill
