DREAMHOUSE AT CENTURY LANGKAWI BEACH RESORT

DREAMHOUSE AT CENTURY LANGKAWI BEACH RESORT

A wooden house surrounded by a tropical rainforest and atop a private beach featuring beautiful French doors that open to private balconies and where a breathe of fresh air is conventional, makes the last setting of my vacation in Langkawi Island, Malaysia. 

The Century Langkawi Beach Resort villas made my dream house come into reality.  It may not be titled under my name but at least I now know how it feels to live on such when realized.


SEAFRONT ROOM VILLA

A 52-square meter room with a private balcony became an instant comfort on one afternoon.  After checking-in, we were ushered by a golf cart from the hotel’s lobby descending to the beachfront area, where our villa is situated.

The fresh air and the cool afternoon breeze made me go in deep slumber.  I have never had a quality siesta for a very long time. The king-sized bed with soft and clean duvet aided my quality sleep.  The room comes with a blackout drapes and curtains as well but I opted to have the French doors open.

I was assigned alone in this non-smoking air-conditioned room that comes with a climate control and a daily housekeeping service.  There is free-wifi and an LCD TV with satellite channels, giving guests the chance to lounge on the sofa while watching TV.

One of the outstanding features of the room is its layout.  It is so spacious and bathroom is uniquely positioned facing the French doors of the balcony that leads to a sea view.  The private bathroom has a separate bathtub and shower provided with bathrobe and slippers and of course, the complimentary toiletries.

There is likewise a mini-bar and a coffee/tea maker.  Since we are far from the city center, we have anticipated that we won’t be going out anytime we want to, and so bought supplies and of course, dozens of beer in cans.  Langkawi Island is duty-free (no taxes) and supplies comes in cheap cost.

At night, the balcony turned into a bar for us.  It was so convenient.  After the long hours of drinking spree, in just a few steps is our lair.

FACILITIES

The spacious reception area and lobby of the hotel can be a good venue for lounging as well.  Internet access is faster at this area and usually we gather at the lobby for checking emails and updating our social media accounts through the uploading of photos.

In addition, Century Langkawi Beach Resort has a private white sand beach and a large infinity pool. The pool bar also adds to the charm of the area and the possibility of lounging for longer hours as we people-watch and share stories.

The wooden boardwalk that surrounds the infinity pool complements well with the natural backdrop of the facility.  There is a well-landscaped garden and natural coves surrounding the area as well.  Staying at the hotel feels like having more intimate encounter with nature.

Our complimentary breakfast was served at the hotels’ in-house restaurant, which is adjacent and a few steps downward from the reception area. 

The restaurant provides a good vantage view of the Pantai Kok (Kok Beach).  Its ambiance is homey and provides a wide range of Asian cuisine.

SERVICE

Efficient and quality service is expected of Century Langkawi Beach Resort’s personnel.  The prompt service is commendable as well and even for asking directions, we can count on them.

It was so unfortunate that I have to leave early and only did the overnight stay but if not for work commitments, I could have stayed longer together with my friends.

My over-all stay was good.  It really felt like home.  Away from the city center and with nature’s purest sounds being heard of – the splashing of waves and the chirping of birds, Century Langkawi Beach Resort is a representation of my dream house.  For now, one of the memorable destinations I had with my travel buddies.
