              Excellent ”

              To be honest, I was impressed with Sunset Bay Cottage, beautiful and clean! Serious! The room was just nice, but comfortable enough. Less than 3 minutes walk to the beach, we can enjoy the breathtaking scenery and we loveeeeee everything about this place. Nothing to complain. This area is a bit far the town, but if you are looking for quieter place, I’ll recommend Tanjung Rhu. We can see the owner cleaning up the area, sweeping the dried leaves to ensure the cleanliness of the beach. We made an excellent choice by choosing Sunset Bay Cottage, 5🌟!

              Reasonable price, beautiful setting, pleasant accommodation: definitely recommended. ”

              We found Sunset Cottage to be ideally located for us, about 10metres from the beach, in the quiet northern part of Langkawi. Situated about 5km from the gorgeous Tanjung Rhu with several nice eateries nearby it was great. Not for those after night life (for that go to Pantai Cenang) but for a peaceful getaway at a good price I'd definitely recommend it. Alternatively, spend £600 a night at the nearby Tanjung Rhu or Four Seasons resorts!

              Beach just steps away...”

              If you’re more for the quiet beach experience and less so for the busy, crowded, hustle-bustle Cenang strip, the Tanjung Rhu in general is the place to be. If you’re not looking for a pool, a gym, a recreation room; and can be contented with well thought out amenities such as outdoor shower stalls to rinse off from your dip in the sea, outdoor clothe line/railings to dry off your wet clothes, hooks and railings in the bathroom, hot water, minibar fridge, air conditioning; then Sunset Bay checks off all that. They also provide a key to common kitchen, with barbecue pits and lots of sitting area looking out to the beach. We counted 3 hammocks under the shade of trees. Standalone, small, mom&pop convenience stores, a laundromat and several small eateries are within walking distance but gets you there faster if you choose to drive. Kuah town is about 20mins drive away. Would definitely stay here again.

              Beautiful stay!!!”

              It was really nice to stay at Sunset bay cottage. The cottages are located right in front of the beach, perfect for a quiet and relaxing holiday. Description of the rooms here is accurate. There isn't much infrastructure around, however, there is a small shop next to the hotel where a lovely old lady sells water/drinks/some snacks and other stuff. It's easy to find where to eat as well. Our best choice for lunch was Martini Restoran at the beach (about 5-10 mins walk to the right following the waterline). Food was nice, drinks were alright and we could easily have a lunch for 2 people for 25-30 ringgit. Tamarind cafe (in the cottage next door) was nice, but I felt like their food choices were a bit boring (subjective:)). Fish&chips cafe at the beach was overpriced for the area. For breakfast, we used to go to Labu Labi residence and pay 10 ringgit pp for buffet (hot drinks, fruits, toasts and cereal). We also booked a boat to Mangrove forests with them, which was cheap and really good.

              Perfectly clean rooms. Bottled water, tea are provided. 50 meters nearby, there is a small budget restaurant with one of the best local food we had in Malaysia and with a gorgeous view to the sea (closed until afternoon). Tanjung Rhu does not have white fine and transparent water, so there are very few people on it. The place is quiet and tranquil and you will need a vehicle there. This was what we looked for. Will definitely stay again if in Langkawi. The only minus is some local specious of mosquitos in the evening which were not repelled by our repellent.

              Right next to the beach. Friendly, well-kept, family-owned place with plenty of outdoor space for children to play. Hammocks and outdoor tables on the site offer a lovely place to relax. Cottages have all the facilities that make for a comfortable stay. Good food available 2 minutes' walk away at Eagleye Homestay and Din Cafe. Tanjung Rhu is a lovely but out-of-the-way beach, never crowded during our time there. Close to mangrove boat tours in Kilim Geoforest Park. Bicycles and scooters available for rental on site. Lovely, peaceful, quiet.

              The hotel was a bit hard to find since it's further up north and is tucked away from the main road, but it is good for a quiet stay. Room is very clean, the cottages are very quaint. Owners are very helpful. It is a 10-ish minute walk from Tanjung Rhu beach. Recommended!

              We really enjoyed our time at Sunset Bay Cottages. Our rooms were clean, quiet, and very near the beach. It's a nice family-run operation. Not too many dining options that are open during the daytime nearby but guests get a key to a communal kitchen.

              Spacious rooms with everything you need. Right on a small beach with lots of seating and very few people around. Great local restaurant next door overlooking the sea. Village walkable for supermarket, laundry and bakery. Scooters and bikes for hire on site for further afield. Good local fish restaurant at the tip of Tanjung Rhu (on the beach round from the jetty). A place to chill.

              New, clean apartments about 30 metres from the beach located in the quiet garden. The best choice for people who want to escape from the crowds and noisy places. Very friendly owners. Private beach. Amazing views. WiFi only available at the reception not in the rooms (for us it was ok - we can escape from it for a while). If You stay there, definitely rent a motorbike or a car. The motorbike was not available on the place when we arrived and we had to get back to the ferry (20km) to rent it. I can recommend the mangrove tour from Ebau pek enterprise - close to the beach nearbay Sunset View Cottage - negotiate the prices! :)

              Great and quiet place to stay at Langkawi”

              The place is great - it's quite far from the crowded Pantai Cenang and is located close to amazing Tanjun Rhu beach. We stayed here and traveled across the island on a scooter that was arranged by our host. I'd highly recommend this place to stay - it's quiet, clean, close to the beach. The only thing that would be missing here are breakfasts but their absence made us discover the island more while looking for food, so there are advantages even in this :)

              Easy to find with Google map. Room is clean and spacious. Basic amenities but no shampoo provided. Just a short walk to a small beachfront but not a fantastic one due to the rocks and cannot swim. Hosts and staff are very approachable and helpful. Location is within 15 - 25 mins drive to other parts of Langkawi attractions. Not many choices of food but still can get some nice local eateries such Roti Canai Power, Nasi Lemak, Scarborough Fish n Chips. Air Hangat Friday night market is only 5 mins drive away. Convenient to move around with a car. Generally good surrounding for those who love quiet and clean place, with affordable price.

Breakfast available at the nearby fish&chips restaurant (opening 10am). Supermarket directly at the driveway. Opening hours not clear though (beer available). Very nice place to stay. Local restaurant in walking distance at beach (3mins walk, cheap local food, with nice sunset view, opening 5pm).

              SIMPLY AMAZING!”

              Pros: -Close location to beautiful non crowded beaches -In expensive and tasty local food places (roti canai cafe walking distance up the road) -The owners are really kind, we had good conversations, help, hospitality and suggestions on what to do that non-locals don't know. (Driving through the villages and rice padi fields) -The Accomodation is new and super clean. -Accomodation is right by the beach woth amazing sunsets and sunrises and has a well kept garden and seating area with hammocks, tables and chairs. -During low tide you can walk and explore the stoney exposed beach and look for shells and marine life. -Nice, Peaceful and serene! Cons: It takes used to getting to know what ifood places are open at what time and which ones are worth it. Most are though.

              My most favorite thing about this place was the communal outdoor area, we had the chance to catch the sunset lying in the hammocks. It's very rocky to swim right in front of the homestay but you can take a nice stroll to a nicely developed beach 2 mins away. Clean and sufficient room, there is parking and a cafe next door where you can eat with the seaview. We won't forget this place, loved it.
