Langkawi is definitely one of the top beach and island destinations in Malaysia.  This archipelago located in north west Malaysia, near Thailand, offers beautiful beaches, a growing nightlife, and duty free shopping.

If this island destination is on your to-go list, then you’re probably wondering where to stay in Langkawi. Here’s some of the best places to stay in Langkawi.


1. Casa Del Mar, Langkawi

Casa Del Mar is a quaint little beach resort that rests on Langkawi Island’s popular Pantai Cenang beach, that is renowned for its service. Inspired by traditional Mediterranean villas with a slight twist of Malaysian design influences, all 34 rooms on this beach resort offer sea views and come equipped with typical modern amenities alongside relaxing hammocks for the option to daydream.

Casa Del Mar is a perfect getaway for couples wishing to find a relaxing place to rediscover one another or to simply enjoy life by the seaside by seeping in the plentiful sights and sounds that Langkawi Island exudes. Other activities not to be missed at the resort should be a visit to its spa, an afternoon picnic under a castaway tent or a candle lit dinner on the beach at sunset with a significant other. Furthermore, a wide selection of shopping outlets, restaurants and nightspots as well as an aquarium can be found nearby the resort.

It should be noted that Langkawi is also a duty-free island so do make sure to make the most out of it when on the island.  This includes tax free drinks.

Casa Del Mar: Price Range

The resort offers four types of rooms and typically ranges from RM800-RM1500+ a night, according to TripAdvisor, depending on the deal or room you choose.

2. The Datai, Langkawi

The Datai, on the other hand, ups the ante by providing guests with a private and secluded beach nearby an untouched rainforest. Although this place looks like a haven for couples, the exclusive resort also features an exclusive 18-hole championship golf course and guests are able to choose between staying at the rooms, suites, or villas at the rainforest or at the seafront.

Where the resort shines is in its beautiful design that seamlessly fits in the midst of a tropical rainforest. Those wishing to spoil themselves silly should try either the rainforest or beach villas as they almost guarantee a majestic staying experience with their separate yet intricate design styles. While all villas are private, the beach villas offer a modern open-plan design that allows guests to fully bask in the beautiful natural seaside facing the Andaman Sea. The rainforest villas have a more Malay-inspired traditional sense of décor. Be that as it may, modern facilities are commonplace in the villas with amenities such as Jacuzzis, rain showers, verandas, balconies, and private pools.

We talked to several expats in Malaysia who’ve quickly claimed this as their favorite place to stay in Langkawi.  One well-traveled expat, specifically stated “That is a very special place.”

The Datai: Price Range

Staying at a room in The Datai can set one back by RM1300+ per night but those wishing to enjoy the resort to its fullest should be ready to splurge more than RM10,000 per night.
