Somewhere dua tiga minggiew yang lepas (mati la entry tertunda bagai!!!), akak had the privilege occay untuk buatkan hotel/ site inspection di The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa occay! Sangat grandits ya. Initially, akak planned to bawak group yang ke Langkawi end of January hari tu ke hotel iniew. Tapi, al kaedahnye, no rezeki la kan, so decided ke Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort - tapi takpo. Dua dua hotel under Starwoods; mrasalah points akak still tetap bertambah. OPS!

Jadi kesahnye di siniew, akak nak buat general review hotel yang akak tak sempat nak menginap tapi sempat la akak buat hotel/ site visit katanya. Gerandsss! Thanks to "Z" & "K", staffs dari The Westin Langkawiew itiew, yang baik hati entertainkan akak yang hina lagi fofuler nih ha... ops!

Jadi, to my dearest friend "Z" dan "K", entry self-review-to-promo iniew, adalah untuk kamiew berdua... dan ingat! Akak nak claim my pay 1 night, free 3 nights stay - boleh? Akak nak One-Bedroom Villa k, siap dengan butler anak ikan yang melerts ok! Mati la akak korang humbankan ke staff quaters, kan? Kekekekekeke...

And so... I bring you...

The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa - The Review...

General overview...
Generally I would have describe the hotel as one of the greatest heaven's made possible on earth! Truly I'd have to say that, it is undoubtedly one of Langkawi's great resort property. Situated just 5 minutes from Kuah Jetty, the hotel which used to be Sheraton Perdana Langkawi, has certainly opened up my eyes as I arrived there. As they called themselves the heavenly retreat, aiyoh! Akak cannot argue and deny about that! So true ok! SO so true! The 5-star deluxe resort is just like 3 km's away, like less than what, 10 minutes away from the town of Kuah, Langkawi's business district. And from the Langkawi International Airport, its like, hmmm... 20 minutes transfer/ ride to the resort - how far can heaven be la kan these days? ;)

Although, personally, I would have to say that, despite being the first, and only Westin branded resort in Malaysia, still, The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa's just tiny setback would be the location itself. Like most of any other 5-star hotels and resorts on the island are situated around the area of Cenang, Pantai Kok, Pantai Tengah and etc., The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa is the only 5-star resort to be in the other side of the world, setting it apart from the rest. BUT, rest assured, that, THAT shall not stop me from babbling all the goodies and wonderfullies stuffies about the resort that certainly has invited me for some free stays sometime somewhere in the future soon, yes? Maaati la akak lagi yer!!! Kali nih korang nak humban akak ke mana pulak dah tatau? 5-bedroom villa??? Lalalala...

The accommodations... in general
After its near USD20 million remodeling work in the year 2006, The Westin Langkawi now ado tastefully decorated rooms, suites, villas, all for you to indulge with luxury and comfy; provided you pay la kan; unlike moi, can claim free stay, yes? (DIE LA MOTHER AGAIN!!!). A total of 222 well-appointed guest rooms and suites, with 20 lavishly decorated villas, which all embraces magnifique beach/ garden views, I must say that the accommodations at The Westin Langkawi will prolly get you NOT GOING OUT from your rooms! Hiks! Like, hello, will you consider leaving your rooms which generally includes the following services:

  • Heavenly bed® (Berape belas RIBU RIBAN USD ok - bukan MYR ok! USD! Our dearest Pak Lah antara the 1st customer yang belik katil iniew ok? Senoroks lah Mak Jeanne, ek? Ops!)
  • Heavenly rainshower/ bath®
  • High- speed broadband internet connection/ access (chargeable of course - ko gila nak free?!)
