    Just excellent!”

    Unique traditional kampung style at rice field with a twist of modern facility. The view is just mesmerizing and peaceful! Convenient location, walking distance to Cenang beach. Staffs: Anuar, Izzudin and the rest of the staffs are warm, friendly & helpful. Tasty breakfast served to our chalet/hut. My kid wanted to have another bowl of cereal, and the receptionist (Izzudin) was kind enough to add without extra charge. Cleanliness: Clean, tidy, satisfactory. Facilities: Perfect for us. Bed is big and comfy. Has air-cond and fan inside the room, but we only used the fan at night because it's cold. After the breakfast, the staff provided us some bamboo rods & fishing tools so we can do some rice field fishing there. We spent hours enjoying this activity and caught many fish. My kid was super excited and happy with this experience. We really love our stay at The Gemalai Village. Definitely would book here should we come to Langkawi again in the future, insha-Allah (God's willing).

    Beautiful and Amazing”

    This place is superb, superb and superb. Very cozy, super clean, good functioning air conditioner, comfortable sofa and bed. We woke up to the amazing view and sound of nature. The rooms are located in the middle of paddy field and connected with wooden walkway. In the morning we took a walk around the area. We watched chickens searching for food in the field, played with a friendly cat and we even had interaction with a buffalo! This place is quiet and beautiful, the best stay I had in Langkawi. However if you are not attracted by nature this place is not for you. There are no swimming pool or breakfast available but it didn't matter, we found tasty roti canai and nasi lemak just right across the street. This place is highly recommended! However I advice avoid checking in at night as this place is not easily found (there's no obvious signboard) and the receptionist is not always at the counter.

    Beautiful surroundings close to nature, taken beautiful shots. Beautiful night sky full of stars! Room was big with complete provision of big wardrobe, laundry bag, TV, clean towels, soap and shampoo etc! Nice experience. Big bed. Cool aircond. Room can be quite hot in the afternoon, but cools down quickly in the evening. Pantai Cenang is quite near, only about 5 minutes drive away. Parking is limited, about 4 cars can park at the compound. There was a small nail protruding out of a wooden plank in the room. And fellow traveler's toe was injured due to that. Informed the office and he responded appropriately. Hope this will not happen to the next person who stays in there. Overall a nice place for retreat and relaxing.

    I love this place so much! Clean & surrounded by paddy field and buffalos. What an experience! It can be hot in the evening but during night time it was so cold. I love the bathroom as well, traditional design. They decorated the room for my birthday & honeymoon. Would love to come back. Thank you!
