DESCRIPTION:
Langkawi Lagoon Resort is one of the recent additions of international class resorts in Langkawi. The resort property is located at Pantai Tengah and within driving (not walking) distance to the famous Pantai Cenang.

To get here from the Langkawi International Airport (LGK), take one of the island's taxis which will cost between RM10 to RM15 per way. The distance from LGK is about 5 kilometres. From Kuah town, the distance is about 15 kilometres, hence taxi fare should be higher.

FACILITIES:

The resort boasts some 160+ rooms in total with about equal amount allocated for both sea- and garden-view. The main building adopts an unflattering Mediterranean design which I find somewhat unnecessary. Nonetheless, the sea villas built on stilts above the water are nicely constructed, emulating traditional Malay architecture with extensive usage of solid timber woods and intricate decors. Generally, most rooms are well-appointed with king- or queen-sized beds, ceiling fans, air conditioner units, hot shower, hair dryers, mini fridges, TVs, and IDD telephones. There is one public pool located in the main building fronting the non-descript beach. The sea villa suites come with indoor jacuzzi and kitchenette.

ATTRACTIONS:
I find the Pantai Tengah beach fronting the resort is unappetizing, as it is the case for most beaches in Langkawi, with the exception of Burau Bay and Payar Beach. One is better off relaxing by the swimming pool. Eating out can be a great concern. Major eating places are concentrated on Pantai Cenang, not to mention a fairly active night activities. Pantai Cenang is about 10-km away from the resort and a taxi journey can easily set you back between RM10-15 per way.

PRICING:
The deluxe beach-front hotel suite (in the main resort building) costs about RM375 per night for garden/hill view while sea facing one costs about RM415 per night. The cheapest sea villa unit is RM580 per night which is a studio and the price goes upwards for bigger-sized units.
