If you are looking for a private and relaxing Langkawi experience with attentive staff, Villa Molek is an excellent choice for both short and extended stays.

This boutique hotel features just twelve suites, plus the Kampong (“village”) House, surrounded by lush gardens and a refreshing pool. The bustle of nearby Pentai Cenang beach disappears behind the fish-filled fountains that lead you into the grounds. The Star Anise spa beckons with heavenly reflexology massage and other indulgences.

At Villa Molek they pay attention to detail. The suites are large and well-equipped. The rain shower has Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries. A snack box of fresh fruit and treats awaits your arrival. There is even a scale, to make sure you don’t eat too many treats, or buy more souvenirs than your return flight will allow.

Staff are charming and professional. They remember your name, your preferences at the on-site cafe and restaurant, and they’ll arrange activities for you from their curated collection of excursions. As their website describes, “you don’t have to feel like a typical hotel guest any more”.
