        The best resort to stay in Chenang. Strategic location and value for money. Highly recommended”

        I was enjoying my stay here at Malibest resort. Will be the only resort that I choose everytime spending my holiday in Langkawi. Very strategic location, amazing scenery, many option of rooms, convinience place. Everything here are almost perfect. The only suggestion, Melibest resort management would have to upgrade the resort facilities such as providing more channel for tv (noticed no english channel) it only has sport which very poor connection and other channel too. Also the hotel must consider to have back the astro / tv remote in every rooms. Every lost and damage, the hotel management may claim from the deposit collected upon check in. To the Malibest resort management and staff, please take this comment positively. I really love to stay in your hotel and I am regular guess of Malibest resort. Please consider to accept my suggestion and upgrade the facilities. Thanks for the hospitality during my stay here. Highly recommended.

        This is the fourth stay iam booking at Malibest thru agoda. As always the stay was comfortable. not many options in Langkawi can beat malibest for its prime location. You are at the most vantage point from all attractions and comforts. Unlike my last trip when i was allotted room on the first floor with no any view of the ocean, this time was lucky to get a room on the floor again. That is the best floor to stay as we have unblocked view of the ocean from our bed. Seems the construction is taking for ever to complete as i have been thru it for all my four stays. Hope they make a fabulous staying option at reasonable price in Pantai cenang with the new building.

        It was a great stay at the Malibest Resort. The location is superb and it is just next to the Pantai Cenang beach. There are some eateries outside and Cenang Mall is 5 minutes walking distance. The staffs were friendly and they even arranged boats for island hopping. A good budget hotel in overall.

        It was my third time to stay at Malibest Resort. I like it because of the location of the resort, which is Cenang Beach. The staffs are very friendly and welcome their guests with smile always. Overall, the room was clean and tidy. I think Malibest Resort should upgrade the room facilities with kettle and coffee/tea.

        Malibest the best!”

        Best location at Pantai Cenang, 1 minute walking distance to the beach. The bed sheet and room are very clean too. Staff also very friendly. The only drawback is that there is no car park provided, real pain in the ass to find a parking lot during night time. In fact, Malibest is undergoing expansion/renovation, hopefully the plan will include private parking lots. In overall, I would recommend this hotel and certainly I will still choose this hotel for next trip.

        We are currently staying at Malibest hotel. From the time we arrived we have been more than happy with the standard of accommodation and service. The room has a great view over the ocean and pool. The room has been serviced every day and is really clean.There are plenty of restaurants and shops just a short walk away. Everyone we have met are friendly and polite. TOURS can be booked at the hotel reception and are fun and good value. Langkawi Island is now on our list of holiday destinations and we will definitely book at Malibest again next time.

        Malibest Resort is located right on the beach, so it made our stay much easier. Chalets are very clean and confortable. It is closed to shopping and dinning area, which is very convenient as well.

        This was my second time in Langkawi however first time staying at Malibest Resort. To me it is really convenient resort due to the location. Staff is very friendly and helpful. If I would be coming back to Langkawi again I would definitely stay at Malibest Resort again.

        Awesome location right smack on the beach..... The wooden chalet is nice and cozy

        Was a bit unsure how the place will be till i touched down langkawi and reached Malibest resort... Though its a basic resort the receptionist was very welcoming and i just needed to wait 5 mins before i was given a room..... I just loved the room as its right smack on the beach and i can watch the beach lying on my bed.... The room is clean and tidy, though I had some issues with the airconditioner after informing the receptionist it was attended to immediately and was resolved. I would Love to visit Malibest again and this time I wanna stay in one of the tree house they looks "cool" Overall I had a Fab stay ...Suggestion - the hotel might think of opening a beach resturant it will be gr8 :)

        Value For Money”

        Strategic location as it is near to the Cenang beach, lots restaurants, souvenirs & convenient shop along the street, I'm glad parking wasn't a problem to us, was quite worried cause I saw many commented on the parking issue, or probably cause it wasn't a holiday season. Just hope the management can fix the access card sensor for the entrance of parking, cause it doesn't work sometimes. Staff were friendly and attentive to guest's request. Cleanliness of the room is just barely acceptable, as we enter the room with still sands on the floor when we checked in and towel wasn't given in the bathroom. Would be great if hairdryer is available in the room, but not sure if can be requested cause we already brought along ours. Overall a pleasant stay in Malibest hotel. Will consider again if we will be back to Langkawi next time if the price are still affordable. Many thanks!

        The best stay!”

        one of the best place to stay in langkawi. The room was bigger than i expected. Even the room across jalan raya from pantai cenang but it really nearby the cenang beach. I really enjoyed my stay. Btw upper of the reception counter, the reception was very nice with a lot of chairs for waiting guest and got luggage room for guest waiting for checkin, but it is still under renovation for more room. Wish the best!

        Room size, cleanliness, location

        I went to Langkawi in October, 11 with my 2 friends. We were a bit scared about d resort after reading some of the reviews, but Malibest turned out to quiet nice. The check in process was smooth. The staff was friendly. They took MYR 100 as security deposit, gave us a receipt for the same and returned dutifully on check out. The room size was decent and so was the bathroom. As th resort is right on the Cenang beach, we got amazing view. Also, everything you would need is near by, be it vehicles on rent, grocery, massage centers, restraunts, foreign exchange etc. In short, Malibest offers superb value for money.

        The best resort on that area.”

        I been to different aread in langkawi but there is no place or location like malibest resort. Sum up whole langkawi shops at one place . Food and other shopping just on few steps. Best resort at excellent location.

        Wonderful holiday in Langkawi Island”

        This is my 3rd stay in Malibest Resort. Like this place because of location and near to the Cenang Beach. Very impreassed with latest facilities ie swimming pool and latest refurbishment. Reasonable price and all staffs in Front Office, Housekeeping and Concierge very helpful and friendly. As for room need to be cleaned esp under bed full of dusk and no ventilation inside bathroom. However I will always support Malibest Resort as long they maintain the product and service.

        Hotel and reception was good for the price, however the bathroom water was yellow in our room and the bathroom stinked. Room cleaning service was good. The view in our room was perfect in front of the Langkawi ocean and beach was easy to access for swimming. I hope the new extension is for breakfast buffet however there was 7 eleven in front of it which was convenient. I loved that Malibest had great tour packages and arranges transport for it as well. Good location and great view.

        Perfect location, Economical, Friendly Staffs, The View from the balcony.”

        Stayed for 4 days 3 nights in an attempt to have a chill out holiday, and even though at first I had some reservation with the resort and Cenang as a whole, but in the end it exceeded my expectations. The resort staffs were very friendly, and even let me check-in as soon as 9am ( some hints, do make friends with the staffs, it will do wonders for the rest of your holiday) and even though my request to be upgraded to beachfront chalet was refused because they were all fully booked, I got the perfect view with top floor unit balcony. Cenang is still beautiful, despite being the centre of activities, but it still maintains its charms, as not being too commercialised as Patong or Kuta. The beach is definitely much less busier than Bali or Phuket, even though you will have the surprised of your life to see the beauty of Tanjung Rhu beach. Overall, its a fuss free stay, with surprisingly clean and swimmable Cenang beach, the view of the beach in the morning from the balcony is just sublime.

        Malibest Hotel Stay-Langkawi”

        We stayed in Malibest resort for 2 nights in family deluxe room. It was good for a stay opposite to beach. Location is of primary importance as it is on cenang beach which is a happening place , near by to airport and plenty of shopping options. They dont have their own restaurant but you have plenty of options near by. Its a value for money, cannot expect more on a beach.We do recommend staying at malibest.
