LOCATION:
At Pantai Tengah. If you are from Langkawi International Airport (LGK), pay heed to the signboard that points you to Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah. At this one T-junction, turn right for Pantai Tengah and you will see this colorful resort. (Turning left brings you to Pantai Cenang).

DESCRIPTION:
Boasting some 160+ rooms in total, Langkawi Lagoon Resort offers two distinctly different rooms. There are about 80 garden view and sea view suites located on the beach. The building has some sort of Mediterranean touch to it, with brightly painted colors, which I find a bit overdone. For the real treats (but it comes at a price), about 80 sea villas are offered for those seeking a romantic hideaway. The 2- or 3-storey complex is built totally above the water, which emulates the traditional Malay architecture of using solid woods and intricate carvings Inside, the fittings are plush. Luxury is the order of the day.

I find the beach fronting the resort is unappetizing, as it is the case for most beaches in Langkawi, with the exception of Burau Bay and Payar Beach. One is better off relaxing by the swimming pool.

If you don't have transportation, getting food can be a tough affair. The plethora of restaurants and night activities are concentrated at Pantai Cenang which is about 10km away and can set you back RM15 by taxi. The two main restaurants in Langkawi Lagoon Resort are The Anjung Brasserie which offers local and international fares, and The Rajawali Seafood Restaurant, which, as the name implies, serves seafood concoction of Malay, Chinese or Western styles.

All rooms with king size bed, ceiling fan along with a/c units, bathroom with hot shower, hair dryer, fridge, TV, IDD phone, swimming pool. Jacuzzi and kitchenette only in Sea Villa Suites.

MY VERDICT:
Excellent resort. If you can afford it, get one of those sea villas.
