We were blown away with the location of Sunset Valley. It was only 15 minutes drive from the airport where you can hire a car on arrival at a bargain rate. It's 20-25 minutes from almost anything on the island and away from the hustle and bustle of the major beach resorts. The grounds are immaculate and the pool overlooking...

Lovely to be back at Sunset Valley after a year and gobsmacked with how the whole place has matured. There was an overwhelming 'greenness' when we drove through the gate and it was a definite wow factor with the late afternoon sun. As for the houses they were good last time but now the little touches that have been made;...

Dear Nick It is always a great pleasure to share your company and Gudrun and I just love that you choose Sunset Valley when you all too infrequently visit Langkawi. The fact that you seem to relate to our little piece of paradise just like we do makes your visits even more delightful. Great that you notice and enjoy the...

This is a fantastic alternative to staying in a generic hotel room. The houses and grounds have a relaxing charm and the location means that you are a short drive away from all the island attractions. As self confessed city folk we were nervous about how much nature would be in the houses but were pleasantly surprised that our only...

Dear Megan Thank you very much for your constructive but kind review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us in the beautifully restored Paddy House. We do apologize for the state of your mosquito net. We have a strict room preparation procedure which does include ensuring that the mosquito is clean at check-in, but apparently we must...

I live in Kuala Lumpur, which is just a short hour-long flight away from Langkawi, so flights up to the island are quite common for me, either for weekend getaways or work-related visits. I've stayed at Sunset Valley a number of times (and now in three of their different houses) and always have such an enjoyable time. I nearly always...

Lovely place with some bungalows/villas in the middle of a paddy field. A green nicely prepared Garden with pool. It's not a luxury place the nature is the Luxus. The villas are individuell and nice decorated. The whole day sound of the nature (birds, grasshopper...) during night even a bit noisy :-) but that's nature. Good Moskito Spray necessary but...

We had a wonderful time. The house, the breakfast and the pool were very nice. Everything was very clean and tidy. The perfect place to explore the island from here! Gudrun and David are excellent hosts and helped us at any time.

Beautiful Malaysian homes in immaculately kept grounds. Wonderfully peaceful and relaxing with loads of birds and circadas(?) louder than any I have ever heard. You go to sleep and wake up to the sounds of nature. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful too - booked car hire and trips for us, making our stay even easier. Would...

Dear Daisy We just love that you loved Sunset Valley. We have had some unseasonable rain recently and the raucous sounds you heard were most likely frogs rather than cicadas! They can make a marvelous racket when they all croak together! The wild-life here is absolutely special and we have now achieved a high degree of ecological balance which really...

We stayed in the auththetic Paddy House which was perfect for us with its natural airflow ventilation making it cool to sleep at night. The setting at Sunset Valley is stunning and like an oasis of peace and calm with lovely views over the paddy fields to the dragon back mountains in the distance.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sunset Valley is located in the middle of the main island of Langkawi's 99 island archipelago overlooking the beautiful rice paddies with a view to the 500 million year old geological formation and rain forest. Our resort has 6 traditional Malay houses for rent, all with inside and outside living areas, kitchen, veranda, air conditioning and western style luxury bathrooms. There is a swimming pool and pavilion with BBQ facilities in a common area. We also offer breakfast as an optional extra on request. In our little convenience store our guests can buy food and drinks for meal preparation in their own houses. This is especially convenient for late arrivals. We are happy to help and advise our guests choose the most suitable island activities for them. The most popular activities are: snorkeling or scuba diving, mangrove boat tours, luxury boat cruises, island hopping, jungle walking, kayak tours, SPA and massage treatments, and many more.Another great way to discover the island is by car or motorbike which we are happy to book for you. ... more   less
