Resorts World Langkawi
Ranked #23 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed 15 February 2012

My friends and I spent 4 days in Awana. As spoken in previous reviewer, the room and corridor is really really old.
The most disappointed thing is water supply in the room has problem. Tap water looks like MILK! I have complaint 3 times to the hotel. They said they will send the maintenance to check and fix it. However, no one come and check it! During the 4 days, we have to buy the water from outside!
Some ratings on the internet about this hotel is 4 Stars. Sorry, I could only give 2 Stars!
I won't suggest my friend to choose this hotel!

Room Tip: No comment!

I planned my holiday so that i could try 2 different hotels in langkawi. I stayed 2 night's in Awana Porto Malai. I must say that Awana Porto Malai has the best view... but i was very surprised when i entered the room... Especially the bathroom, the shower was old and didn't function well, the towels were of low quality.. the sink was a bit dirty...(stains on the marble), no hair dryer... no room slipper,no complimentary drinking water, no newspaper in the morning... the carpets were dusty... the king sized bed had only 3 pillows.. For a so-called 3-4 star hotel, it seemed to me like it was more of a budget hotel.. I loved the view... but i really didn't like the interior of the hotel at all.. Breakfast was great and there was a wide variety of food... The gym was not bad too but i was a bit dissapointed coz the opened quite late in the morning (9am),.. 7am would be better.. The pool was a misery too.. it was located near the car park and very small... too many people in the pool, so i didnt get a chance to dip in the pool at all... For those who plan to take this hotel,.. You must choose sea view... if you choose garden view.. you'd be staring at the car park...! Good hotel but it needs to be renovated and painted... looks run down.. You're only paying for the view...

Awana made my honeymoon special. Its location is awesome and has waterfront. The staff is very helpful and cooperative. My room was upgraded and also provided me the waterfront.

They have their private island where you can have nice time and enjoy in lonely.

Its a great place to stay with friends, family and spouse.

I would recommend to stay at Awana Portomalai

Room Tip: Choose water front view room

the hotel position is one of the best you can find in Langkawi: near enough to anything you want to do or see, and far enough from the the smell and the crowd of Pantai Cenang.
the staff is were helpful and kind, tha breakfast (we didn't have lunch or dinner at the hotel) was good for western and eastern people.
the gave us two connecting rooms, and one of them was a superior one, without any more charge. :-)
the worst thing were rooms condition and the general cleaniness..
dust is everywhere, curtains were supposed to be white but they are leopard-style..
but nothing you can't stand, if you have a sea-view room.. ;-)

This is the right place for those -
who want to pass vacation with full silence...
who wnat to stay far away from the crowd…
who wants to see wonderful scenery all around them...

You can see the blue water and green small islands from your bed ... its an awasome experience..

Main disadvantage is : you will always need to car/taxi/motocycle to reach the beaches, markets, food resturants..

Room Tip: must take sea view room
