I am arranging a surprise birthday stay in a nice hotel in langkawi malaysia for my partner from 12th to 16th December.
We would of been backpacking around Asia for 3 months so wanting to have a nice break for a few nights in a good hotel.
The hotel needing the following
- Close to a nice beach
- Big nice swimming pools
- Good prices
- Big comfortable rooms
Also on another note would it be better to get a boat from Thailand or Malaysia?
How long would it take to travel to KL and then onto Singapore few days later as our flight out to OZ is on the 21st.
Thanks in advance
We stayed at Csa del Mar in August 2008 - it was amazing, so great choice of hotel.
Restaurants - about 2 minutes walk into Pantai Cenang is Orkid Ria- great for seafood, a bit further down is the Red Tomato for excellent curries, plus many more to chose from and in Kuah, the town, there's the best restaurant of all called Wonderland - its not hard to find and the food is excellent and very cheap.
Great things to do - we hired a car for the day from a shop called T Shop close to the hotel and drove round the island from the hotel in a clockwise direction, stopping at Teluga Bay, then the Oriental Village and went up the cable car - that was brilliant but make sure it is a clear day.We also hired a scooter and went into town, checked out the shops and had a great meal in an Indian Vegetarian cafe opposite the big shopping centre - that was dirt cheap and so tasty, serbed on a banana leaf!
We also did a boat trip to the 3 islands - it was okay. The mangrove tours with Devs are very popular but we ran out of time.
