Malibest Resort @ Langkawi

Initially, I planned to have a 4 days 3 nights stay in Langkawi, then when planning my itinerary I find that time is not enough, hence I extend 1 more day.

BUT, after spending 4 nights in Langkawi, especially after the Pulau Payar trip (which I did not blog about it), I find that I am kinda exhausted. I want a day where I can do nothing on the beach and have a good rest. Hence, I decided to extend 1 more night, which in the end, I spend 6 days 5 nights in Langkawi!

Although Four Points by Sheraton had a great room and pool, but I decided to spend my last night at some hotel in Pantai Cenang.

After some quick research, and due to the mother of luck is on my side, I manage to book a Super Deluxe Beach front room at Malibest Resort.

After sending Cow Cow to the airport, I checked in at around 1.30PM at Malibest resort. Since the room is scattered around by the beach, their staff lead us to our room.

While the room is a normal budget resort style….

While the bed is not really that comfortable….

Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant @ Langkawi

After the tiring and disappointing trip from Pulau Payar (which I did not blog about), and since it’s our last day in Langkawi, I and Cow Cow decided to have our dinner at Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant, which we both heard that it served great Japanese food.

Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant located at a hill along Pantai Tengah. The road leading up to the restaurant is very small and steep, so drive slow if not you will just missed the entrance.

If you choose to sit at the upper floor, you can enjoy some nice view while dining. Reservation is advisable if you travel on peak period since the restaurant is quite small only.

Crystal Yacht Sunset Cruise @ Langkawi

I had heard a lot about sunset cruise before I went to Langkawi, and I had read quite a lot and most of their websites make me WOW.

However, joining this cruise as a couple only might not be as fun hence it’s really a hard decision for me to join or not since this 3 hour activity is not cheap. It cost RM250 per person so yea…hard decisions to made eh.

Luckily, cow cow decided to join us in Langkawi, and since he is also interested in this sunset cruise, here we are!

The cruise started at 5PM, but they already starting to pick up guest as early as 4PM. The van driver arrived at our hotel at 4.15PM sharp, and took us to Awana Porto Malai.

And no, this boat is NOT the one we are going to spend 3 hours on. It’s just to transport us to the yacht.

Little Mexican Cafe @ Langkawi

After our crazy Go-Kart at noon time, 4 of us are hungry like hell and so here we are, at Cenang trying to find something to eat.

After driving up and down, and even stopped at duty free shop to stock up for alcohol, we finally decide to have our lunch at a small cafe, named Little Mexican Cafe.

Only few tables available in this small cafe, and there are also 2 customers besides us when we were here.

However, although our order was taken quite fast, but the food really take ages to come. This plate of cheesy nachos take at least 30 minutes before it arrived our table when there is only well, 2 tables of customers?

Not to mentioned, it’s bad. 3.0/10

Luckily, the Chilli Chicken is really really good. I forget the exact name of it, but I like it a lot. I do wish it’s even more spicy though 😀 7.8/10

Cable Car & Sky Bridge @ Langkawi

Today is the day Cow Cow and his girlfriend arrive. I picked them up at the airport at 8.30AM, and they are able to straight away check in at Four Points! Damned!

Trying to go to the cable car as early as possible, we head straight to Oriental Village, thinking that we can find something light to eat there.

End up….only 1 small shop is opened for breakfast. Sigh. Finding a place to eat early in Langkawi is so troublesome. This had spoilt my mood on taking any pictures of Oriental Village, which makes me kinda regret now. 😀

Anyway, the queue to the cable car is long. We waited for almost 1 hour! The ticket of the ride is RM15 per person with Mycard.

During queuing, we noticed a funny incident. A couple decided not to queue anymore since it’s so long. He then proceed to tell the officer that his leg is pain (well, he does have something wrapped on his ankle) and asked can he get to the ride first. Luckily the officer is firm and say no. Unless he is willing to pay RM50 per person for the express ticket, which I saw few person actually bought it. Anyway, when his leg is so damned holy moly pain, I still see he being able to walked happily to the sky bridge later on.

The cable car ride is a short one, and you can see some really nice view of  the island when you are in it. The red buildings in the centre of the pictures are the Oriental Village.

Orkid Ria Seafood Restaurant @ Langkawi

After checked in to the room, I and LY have a slight nap, before we were out to enjoy the infinity pool! Although the sun is so damned poison, but the pool is just great.

Anyway, after fooling around, we were out for dinner at Cenang Beach again. Choices of restaurant? Orkid Ria, one of the most visited restaurant by tourist from China.

It was around 7pm and it was already packed, and we were lucky that we don’t need to wait for our seat.

Scallop, just a few tiny piece. Taste good though. 7.2/10

Four Points by Sheraton @ Langkawi

After lunch and top up my alcohol stock at a nearby duty free shop, we head straight to Four Points by Sheraton to check in.

The hotel dos look promising from outside.

However, the spacious and empty lobby does look depressing. We arrived at 2.30PM and was told that our room was not yet ready. Well, okay, I might as well take some pictures around first.

In less than 10 minutes, the room is ready….yay!
