Ombak Villa: Review

Tucked away between the lush jungle and calm ocean, Ombak Villa is truly a place to rest and restore. The luxury hotel provides a quiet escape for guests to soak in a warm bathtub or relax on a balcony surrounded by the sounds of birds chirping and waves gently lapping on the rocky shore.

The large infinity pool with cushioned deck chairs and indoor/outdoor restaurant with extensive menu options mean an entire vacation could easily be spent without leaving the comfort of the hotel. If you do decide to venture outdoors, take advantage of the large, free carpark and hire a car or scooter. In under 20 minutes, you'll be sipping cocktails on dreamy beaches like Pantai Cenang or Tanjung Rhu, or riding the world-famous Langkawi Cable Car to admire the mountainous tropical island from Langkawi SkyBridge.
