I stay there during CNY with 5person in 1 room. The beach is nice and the loocation is like center between interest place. If taken plane to langkawi, langkasuka beach resort is perfect.

for the amount paid RM150
compare to Malibest RM145

Room Space: Langkasuka>Malibest
Room Cleanliness: Langkasuka>Malibest
Beach Condition: Malibest>Langkasuka by a slight margin (both also muddy and dirty)

but Langkasuka has free breakfast for 4pax

but it all boils down to individual
i prefer quiet place
some ppl like happening place like Cenang

The breakfast not really good. Below the resort level. You want nice delicious breakfast, you got to add rm4 to have it at lobby.

I try to book two rooms in Malibest through Journey Advisor.
Plan to go there early July. They reply I only can book for at least 3 months earlier.
Hopefully by April the room is not fully book yet, looking to stay at Malibest because of cheap and big room.

will be going on 9/3 -booked 2 rooms for 4 pax -RM125 per room @ Cuti-cuti Malaysia, i guess ok la -been there twice, never stayed in Langkasuka. Tempted to stay in Pantai Cenang, but I guess it's rather 'too happening' like people said -specially at night. Prefer rather quiet atmosphere tongue.gif .

Hope the beach is ok -want to do some shopping too -very tempting drool.gif


Added on February 17, 2009, 6:10 pmanyone has contact for car rental-last time got Nissan Sentra for RM80 per day

The stage for the anna & the King dismantled long time ago..Even 3 yrs ago I tried checking out that place & the guy at Oriental Village (Cable car terminal). told me the same. I suspect the location is Oriental Village itself.. hmm.gif

Out of curiosity & after checking wikimapia, I noted one remark on Anna & the king stage & after zooming-in I noted the blue roof stage is still there. Subsequent check wth google earth noted that image is pretty old i.e cir~ Jan 2006. The last I checked in 2007 (Not really 3 yrs ago), that stage has been dismantled- according to Oriebtal Village ppl-lah & now I remembered they told me it's not at Oriental Village but near to the beach. Dun bother to check as they said already dismantled blush.gif ) .

At that point of time, construction is still ongoing on a hotel (?) abit North of that stage & not far from Telaga Harbor(Mahathir's bread house (The Loaf). Even during my last visit in 2007, that area is a restricted area although I din know the exact location without the help from the poor reso Google Earth at that point of time

Check here for the actual location of summer Palace:
