While my friends and I were at Langkawi Island, we stayed at Berjaya Langkawi Resort.
Oh wait, Langkawi again?! Don’t worry, this is gonna be the last plug on Langkawi. I promise!
Alright, let’s get started.
Over here, the rooms are called chalets and they don’t have any high-rise building. I believe Berjaya Langkawi is renowned for its chalets, especially the ones on water.
We didn’t stay at the chalet on water though.
Instead, the chalet we stayed in is built within the rain forest, featuring the essence of early Malay architecture.
The cheapest price you can get for a chalet is RM460 a night, but we got it cheaper because kenwooi.com is visiting my friend has an uncle working with Berjaya Group.
To be honest, I thought if we’re staying in the chalet on water, it’ll be so cool! But that would cost RM1,360++ a night! o.O
Anyway, there are quite a number of entertainments around the resort lobby.
There’s a place called Rimba Lounge. Sounds groovy.
You get to play Foosball, Play Station 3, sing karaoke and chill out at a bar. There’s a mini Internet cafe too.
But nothing is free here, you gotta pay to use the facilities.
A swimming pool is available as well. For this, you don’t have to pay lah.
As you walk further in, you’ll be heading to Berjaya Langkawi Resort’s own personal beach.
Even though there are sports activities provided here, we didn’t try them out here.
Instead, we went to Pantai Cenang because the water-sports activities there are cheaper.
The beach is like any other ordinary beach, but you get to see the row of chalets on water from the beach.
You can’t see the chalets on water because their lights weren’t turned on when I took this photo.
Other than that, not many people around. Everyone probably went to other beaches.
Anyway, the only free meal we get here is the buffet breakfast at Dayang Cafe, which is situated at the lobby.
The selection of food available is simple and delicious.
Visitors get to make their own nasi lemak, toast their own bread and prepare their own mixed rice.
You can basically have most of the food to yourself because the visitors are mostly foreigners, and they’re not as greedy as us Malaysians – typical Malaysians will wallop all!
Cleanliness and presentation wise, I’d rate it as “Excellent”. Customer service by the staffs is commendable as well.
Anyway, back at our chalet – we were told that we’re not allowed to feed wandering monkeys. It is bad for their health and over time they will lose the ability to find their own food in the wild.
We didn’t get any monkey-visit actually, but on the last day…
King Kong visited us!
Huh wait, sorry wrong picture. Actually is this monkey…
This monkey is smart. It tried to open the slide door and grab one of our backpacks.
But we are smarter – we latched the door! The monkey then kept waiting and showed us this facial expression…
Anyway, no pictures of how the room looks like – it was pretty messy. So, imagine a room with queen-size bed and sofa bed okay?
And that’s it. Pretty much everything about the experiences during my recent trip to Langkawi.
Stay tuned – usual kenwooi.com entries will be back!
