Aloft Langkawi Pantai Tengah: Review

Explore Langkawi from Aloft's convenient location by the shores of Pantai Tengah. If clear, turquoise shores are what you're chasing, take advantage of the hotel's complimentary, on-demand beach buggy service to the soft white sand where watersport vendors await tourists eager for parasailing, island hopping, kayaking, jet-skiing, or banana boat rides.

Want to explore further? Mull over the range of activities listed on the giant lobby-level map. Concierge staff will gladly organize tours of attractions like mangrove forests, or book you on a complimentary shuttle to the Thursday night market where you can snatch up a bargain, Malay-style dinner.

Speaking of free… all guest rooms come with a complimentary mini-bar and added extras like a balcony, beach towels and flip flops. If you're lucky enough to score a room with an ocean view, keep an eye out for Langkawi's iconic brahminy kites and white-bellied sea eagles soaring above the dreamy island-dotted sea.

Ocean views continue from the 3rd floor pool, where seating options range from pool chairs, to circular sunken lounges, to day beds. Enjoy a signature cocktail from the poolside bar, Splash, attached to café-style Nook - the perfect venue for a casual meal or to sample local breakfast dishes like roti canai and nasi lemak.

Also located on the 3rd floor are the hotel gym, kids club, and a foosball table. Don't be fooled into thinking family-friendliness takes away from romance. Pamper your significant other with Aloft's romance package to be welcomed with a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and a private sunset dinner on your balcony.
