The eveel peeps recommended the Berjaya Resort and Spa to me when Alee and I were planning our holiday. And so, we said- Why not? It helped that there was an offer for 30% off or something like that for reservations made 2 months in advance!
Alee booked us in a premier suite, with a gorgeous sea view. With very comfy deck chairs on the verandah, it was a perfect place for us to chill with our books and take daytime naps while it rained, and the birds serenaded us to sleep. The eveel peeps warned us about the monkeys in the area, and so did the concierge- reminding us to always always keep the sliding doors and windows closed when we leave the room- just in case the monkeys decide to throw a party in our suite! But thankfully, none of the monkeys in the area decided to visit, although i could hear them from afar.

In fact, the morning before we left, we heard a frightfully scary sound, which made me run right back into the room and lock the sliding door tight. The concierge told me later that it was the sounds of a hornbill- pity we didn't get a chance to take a look since it was still dark. Sure would be pretty!
I'd love to come back to Berjaya Resort- it was such a treat with the sea before you, and the lush mountains behind the resort providing cool shelter. The beach is private and secluded and is really next to a Bay, so the waters are calm and perfect for all sorts of sea sports- if it was nice and hot i may have ventured out to sea- but with the light rains in the mornings and evenings, we were contented to stay in our hotel room, enjoying the view and enjoying our books!
But be warned- it's damn ULU. So make sure you rent a car, cos you'd regret it if you didn't. Unless of course you're quite contented to eat hotel food all day long- which at Berjaya is pretty reasonable in prices. Rent a car lah- its cheap and Langkawi's really easy to navigate!
gorgeous views from the hotel's beachfront!
