Awana Porto Malai Hotel
Explore the beauty of the Resort's Mediterranean-inspired setting and embark on island-hopping adventure and soak in the sun, sea & surf on enchating white sands.
Ignite the flames of passion with a luxury sunset cruise, moonlight strolls on the Boardwalk & a romantic candlelight dinner under the stars.
Discover the fascinating cultures and legends of Langkawi with exotic local tours & end with a shopping spree at the many duty-free outlets.
Awana Porto Malai Resort is just the right place for all your indulgence.
Unique Qualities: Awana Porto Malai Resort provides a host of leisure activities such as land activities & sea activities. Other notable facilities are duty-free shop, shuttle service to Kuah Town & Cenang Beach, Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa, etc.
This is a wonderful resort popular among the local & foreign tourists alike. Eventhough this resort is facing the sea with its own jetty, the only setback is that it doesn't have any beach. The swimming pool as an alternative is rather small & lonely. However, you still can have all the fun by going to the nearby Cenang beach or sign up yourself for an island-hopping tour (just nearby hotel, enquire at the concierge).
The continental buffet breakfast has a decent variety that will appeal to all tourists. You can either eat in or alfresco by the Boardwalk.
The hotel room is airy & spacious. You can choose to have sea view or garden view room. Upgrade your room to sea view at a small sum and you can enjoy the scenic sea view & azure sea breeze, room with comfy sofa & coffee table.
A stroll on the Boardwalk, be it in the early morning hours or moonlit night, is a romatic experience. Lying lazily on the deck chair, reading to your favourite novel, popping duty-free beer & munching some tidbits or a chat with friend. Beer is really cheap here, therefore you can stock up some in your hotel room's fridge.

Lobby of The Datai
Unique Qualities: We head to this resort out of curiousity to find out how exclusive it is. Yes, it's really exclusive and preferred by the rich & famous.
First of all, it has its own private access road leading to the resort which is a few kilometres long from the main road.
Secondly, the resort has a golf course and every parts of the resort is accessible using its buggy service.
Thirdly, staff are friendly even we are not guests but just curious "visitors".
The resort doesn't have the usual design of a lobby. Instead, it's a small alcove with sort of customer service desk for check in. The main area exudes an oriental & mysterious charm. At the centre of the lobby is a lotus pond with drangonflies happily hovering around. The coffee terrace is overlooking this pond.
I do not have the chance to see the resort's private beach. I believe it's accessible via the swimming pool but have to walk some distance amidst the lush forest in order to reach there.
