My family booked the deluxe room (which is their basic) and stayed here for 4 nights as our friends were getting married on the resort. The staff here are friendly, sweet and do try their best to help. I couldn't fault their service. Our room was basic and faced the forest. It has a teeny tiny balcony and had walls that didn't have great sound proofing. I could hear people talking in the rooms next to me. The next time I stay here, I would definetly upgrade and pay for a more premium room. I admit for 5 star luxury I did expect just that little bit more even for a basic room at the price that is charged per night when compared to other resorts I've been to. However, that being said, we were out all the time anyhow and their facilities are amazing!!! The private beach is clean and the water so warm. The pools are catered to everyone. It was great that their in room dining was 24 hours and they had 5 restaurants for us to eat at serving good food. My most memorable experience here was definetly the spa!!! Please try it. The spa is located on the mountaintops and you get your treatments done in an open room with the sound of the waves and beach surrounding you. It is worth every cent. To get to the rooms, they use a buggy to drive you to the little huts and the view is breathtaking. I'm sure there are more modern resorts on langkawi but if you want an all inclusive resort that really values the environment and brings the rainforest and beach to your doorstep then I would recommend it. It's very secluded and at least a half hour drive from the nearby town or conveinence store so for families travelling here, maybe factor that in and grab your snacks etc for the kids before your stay here. Overall we really enjoyed it and my daughter didn't want to leave.
The resort itself is old but they have maintained it reasonably well, but if you are hoping for high end luxury you will be disappointed. It does have its charm and a beautiful view. They are carrying out upgrades so I believe the resort will only keep improving. I had a catalog of problems that did at times leave a nasty taste. I addressed them with the manager and I hope that he will give the staff the necessary training. That said the pool and beach staff are superb. They offer a level of service and professionalism that is sadly lacking in the main building of the hotel. I am inclined to believe the manager that we were just unlucky and the problems that we encountered were isolated instances or due to young inexperienced members of staff. That said, for me personally, I will not be returning. There are just too many better options on Langkawi within and without of the SPG group.
We would like to thank the management for an amazing stay at The Andaman Resort, Langkawi. We were visiting to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and my wife's 65th birthday. Since we entered the hotel, we were greeted with warm Malaysian hospitality and the staff made us feel very welcome. We were upgraded to a higher category room to celebrate this occasion, thank you to the management (Christian) for this kind gesture. The staff were simply the best.. Priya thank you for the amazing local insight, Ajay and Harry thank you for the amazing food to match our dietry requirements, Nia thank you for the warm waitress service and Roshan thanks for arranging our local tours.. We loved the beach, room, resort and fantastic hospitality. Can't wait to return again!
the Hotel is shrouded in the surrounding jungle of the island and full well lives up to its title as a luxury Resort. All rooms are spacious and well taken care of by the friendly and pleasant staff, not to mention the exquisite ocean views one can receive from your rooms window. the facility itself is breathe taking at its size and yet some how manages to blend seamlessly into the surrounding forests. There are four restaurants to choose from along with a pool bar so you shall not go wanting for food or drink and the sunsets on the beach which is less then three hundred meters from your room is always breathe taking. To tie everything up nicely the atmosphere is that of rejuvenation and self well being, with various massages and nature tours to help you unwind and become closer to yourself and nature as you relax.
From the minute we arrived, the staff could not have been more friendly or welcoming. The hotel facilities themselves were great, from the pool, sunloungers and endless supplies of beach towels. The spa was incredible and a perfect way to relax. Thoughtful touches - like serving fresh ice lollies in the afternoon - were really welcome. The staff were attentive but equally respected your privacy and helped create the relaxed atmosphere. We ate at every restaurant in the hotel and couldn't decide our favourite, from the fabulous sushi to the traditional Malaysia and tandor flavours at the Tepian Laut, or incredible fresh fish at Jala, where is literally set on the beach... and the gorgeous daiquiris at the beach bar were the perfect way to watch the stunning sun set on literally one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in SE Asia.
I went to the The Andaman for my 1st of three places for Honeymoon. The service and hotel was amazing from when we first arrived to our departure. - On the beach - Great restaurantsand bars - Shisha (arabic waterpipe) on the beach - Great service - Rooms with pool or Jacuzzi are worth it. - Nice hotel pools Cannot pick a fault.
We really had a pleasant stay in this hotel. The restaurants are outstanding and the atmosphere is so nice. The front desk is very helpful to make all the reservations you want. We would recommend this hotel for everyone. We definitely will be back in the future.
Service (5/5): Staff is well trained, concierge is very helpful, onboarding was done by a wonderful lady, professional pick up service even with baby seat available if needed. Food (4/5): The only reason I wouldn't give it 5/5 is the lack of pork (could have been mentioned upfront on the website) and strictly average bakery items served during breakfast. There is a Japanese and seafood restaurant which we didn't visit and the rating thus does not include them. Room (4/5): Spacious, clean room; clean and big bathrooms; comfortable furniture. However, the aircon blasted cooler air than what the temperature sensor reflected. 27 degrees on the sensor felt like 20 degrees. Location (5/5): Secluded and quiet. Beach is almost private and clean. Spacious property and well spaced. Datai Bay is wonderful and picturesque. Wi fi (5/5): Just brilliant anywhere in the property. Value (5/5): The 30 percent off from booking directly on the hotel website was fabulous. Activities (4/5): Coral nursery, marine biology lab, amazing spa with a great view of the beach. Overall rating = (Total score/35)*5
we have just come back from the most amazing honeymoon ever, spending two weeks at this gorgeous hotel , we arrived to a lovely welcome and refreshments to be told we had a upgrade and a welcome from the manager. the rooms are amazing and cleaned everyday with bottles of water put in (even thou i found out in the second week we could drink the tap water ) , the staff in this place are all lovely and very friendly and will go out of their way to help you and to make sure that you are ok , they greeted everyday with smiles on the faces and even knowing your room number without telling them. Hana in the bar knew that i like my drink in a particular glass and every night she put it in their without asking , Ravo in the restaurant also got to know that we liked a particular table outside for breakfast and made sure that we got one , the atmosphere around the pool and the beach was lovely and so peaceful ( read 4 books ) and even thou there are kids at this hotel you don't hear them. we spent our days on the gorgeous beach and around the lovely well kept pool. staff were always on hand to get you drinks and hand out cold towels which was a very pleasant welcome when its hot. The beach is one of the best i have been on , peaceful and quiet and the views of the sunsets are amazing, the sea so warm and clear . the restaurants are the best five star dining and every restaurant is different and very good , our favourite was the fish restaurant on the beach. The other thing here is the wildlife amazing the monkeys are entertaining and we loved watching them everyday from our room and around the pool, the flying lemars at night and the hornbills are def ones to look for , we saw the twice and they were gorgeous. this hotel made our honeymoon and its an holiday we will never forget and one that we will treasure for ever.....
very luxury hotel & great service from the hotel staff. the spa packages is out of this world. a very big spread of breakfast with sparkling wines. i would recommend this hotel for a very romantic stay. good rest concept too.
