|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Containing all the modern amenities you would expect in a holiday apartment, all towels, bedding, wifi, final cleaning and air con are also included in the rental charge. No extra's!
1st floor location - Two bedrooms, lounge/diner combined, balcony with pool views, kitchen, washing room and store room.
Flat screen TV with DVD (plays all region DVD's) and CD player (no satellite TV). Fitted kitchen, washing machine, drying and ironing facilities. Wifi.
The main bedroom has an Emperor sized bed, with en suite wet room/lavatory. The second bedroom has two single beds, with adjoining bathroom facilities. There is a fully kitted out kitchen, but as the food is so plentiful and inexpensive in Langkawi, it has not seen much action!
The lounge has a leather reclining sofa and chair, whilst the dining area has a table and seating for six people. The balcony overlooks the swimming pool.
Please note this is strictly a non-smoking apartment - smoking is allowed on the balcony however.
Shops and eateries can be found within easy walking distance.
Although the apartment is located in the islands capital town, it certainly does not suffer from 'city noise'. Adjoining a rainforest means that Macaque monkeys are regular visitors, and hornbills are also known to swoop in. Listening to the sounds of the forest at night is a pleasure in itself.
The complex is generally quiet during the day, and that also applies to the swimming pool. You certainly will not find yourself being crowded out in the pool, and its size means it is ideal for dedicated swimmers looking to exercise effectively. There is an adjoining paddling pool specifically for toddlers, and both pools are cleaned and treated daily. There is no life guard provided at any time though, and therefore swimmers use the facilities at their own risk.
The nearest beach to the apartment is about 1km away at Legenda Park, and this provides a sandy and quiet place to unwind. Also adjoining Legenda Park is a children's playground with loads of slides and swings for the kids to play on, as well as the local children for them to play with. There are more beaches on the island that are well worth a visit, but these will require a taxi or hire car to get you there.
The whole ambiance of the island is very laid back and friendly. English is widely spoken, tourists are welcomed, and most things are inexpensive in comparison to other continents. Langkawi is very different to its busier neighbour Penang, and may not be suitable for everyone. If you want a vibrant night life that continues till the early morning, and streets that bustle with traffic, then visit Penang. If you want a quieter, but more scenic environment, where good food is plentiful, and the locals are happy to see you, then visit Langkawi.
Sunset Apartment - Langkawi. A modern, well equipped, two bedroomed apartment with wifi, on a private and secure complex. Located on the outskirts of Langkawi's capital town - Kuah, the complex boasts the best swimming pool on the island for swimmers, and backs onto an undisturbed rainforest. Monkeys and exotic birds are neighbours to the complex, and you can listen to the night sounds of the forest as you drift to sleep.
Getting to the apartment to the airport is easy, as it is located a 20 minute taxi ride from Langkawi airport. Taxi's are plentiful at the airport, the fee is fixed at 25 ringitts (RM), and all the drivers know where the complex is located.
The apartment is the ideal base to explore Langkawi, or simply to relax and enjoy the wonderful climate. Compared to similar standard hotel accommodation on the island, our rental rates offer great value, and allow you the opportunity to take your meals when and where you want. Central Kuah is within a 10 minute walk and offers a selection of shops, banks and plenty of places to eat. There are shops and eateries even closer should you want to stay out of town.
Langkawi is a nature lovers paradise. Being assigned 'World Geopark' status by Unesco in 2007, the island provides a vast array of opportunities to experience natural wildlife in the raw. From acres of rain forest, to miles of unspoilt (and uncrowded) beaches, the island really is fascinating to explore, and readily accessible. The road system is great, car hire/taxi's are cheap, and petrol a fraction of the price than in Western Europe. There really is no excuse to not getting out and about.
The island enjoys duty free status, and whilst this makes alcohol cheap, thankfully there is no excessive behaviour anywhere on the island or within the complex. Residents are obviously requested to respect this environment.
Overall Langkawi makes an excellent holiday if you like nature, beaches, great food, exploring, swimming and generally taking things easy. Its also great value to eat and drink there. Its probably not so good though if you are looking for night clubbing or mega shopping, but then there are loads of other destinations that can offer that.
It has a growing ex-pat community as Malaysia is becoming a popular retirement destination. If you are thinking of retiring there, then our apartment offers you an ideal way of dipping your toe in the water, and seeing if island life is for you. Alternatively, its a great place for couples and families who want to enjoy unspoilt nature.
There are lots of places to visit and things to do. Here are a few that you can Google for further details:-
Langkawi cable car, Langkawi Snake Sanctuary, Eagle Square, Lagenda Park, Gunung Raya, Langkawi Crocodile Adventureland, Pregnant Maiden Lake, Telanga Waterfalls, Laman Padi Rice Garden, Underwater World, Galeria Perdana, Mangrove Tour Langkawi, Royal Yacht Club.
If you prefer beaches, then Langkawi has its fair share of these, and here are a few suggestions for you to visit:-
Pantai Tengah - adjoins Pantai Cenang, but is quieter and more suited to families. The place to chill in peace.
Pantai Kok - near to the Cable Car and relatively undisturbed. The place to be alone.
Tanjung Rhu - far north of the island, and the most picturesque with many natural attractions. The place to explore.
Pantai Cenang - the islands most popular. Lots of restaurants, shops, white sand and people. The place to be seen.
We love Langkawi island, its people and its relaxed ambiance. Should you decide to stay at our apartment we will be happy to help you make the most of your time there, and help you in putting together an itinerary that will reflect your preferences and timescales.
