What we say:
This relatively new guesthouse is located behind the Laman Padi Museum with access from Jalan Bohor Tempoyak, the first T-junction before you enter Pantai Cenang. The main house is a two-storey, traditional-style building with a small veranda and bar for guests. The rooms are located in the two single-storey wings that create the central garden compound. Located in a rural setting, this guesthouse has 12 rooms, four with fan and common bath, eight with ensuite bath, fan and optional air-con and a 10-bed dormitory. The rooms are spotless and all simply but pleasantly furnished. Dorms have new wooden bunk beds and air-con. The friendly atmosphere, rural setting and reasonable prices make this new-kid-on-the block quite popular. There is also a footpath that leads to the Pantai Cenang main strip so it's an easy stay without a motorbike.

Tranquil, no pressure
I stayed here for almost 3 weeks over Christmas & New Year. This place is a lovey rest haven - very close to the beach, shops, cafes, and yet it feels like you are on a country retreat. This is definitely a 'no-pressure' place. If you are wanting to stay somewhere that feels homely and pleasant and safe, while staying on a beautiful tropical island - this is it.
The place is clean and has a 'hotel' feel about it - especially in the twin/double rooms - sheets get changed -the towels are big and thirsty. The dorm has 10 beds and air-con between 11pm-11am (fans at other times, which are adequate). Beds are comfortable and the whole place is well-kept. The owner is a young European woman who has been a back-packer herself, so she has an understanding of the needs of westerners, and with a generous approach to her guests.
Breakfast is a cheap option, and helps you to sty on-site, if a day's rest is what you want.
The no-stress atmosphere I think is probably due to her kind nature.
Less than a kilometre away and you get all the fun that you want and still get to come home to a peaceful, tranquil, and clean environment.
Cenang Beach is beautiful, with soft white sand - stingers (jelly-fish) though, so get a stinger-suit.....
As a seasoned traveller and back-packer, I certainly do recommend this place and the prices as quoted are correct. It is a haven amongst some of the madness of Asia :)
The Island is very low key, the shop-owners and cafe staff are happy to see you, and not worried if you don't buy - it's a 'no pressure' kind of place.
Besides the stingers in the water, the only down-side of Langkawi Island (nothing to do with the guest house) does not have public transport, so if you are not prepared to hire a motor bike or car, then a taxi with set (inflated) prices is your only choice. If you want to stay put, and have all the wonderful eating places and shops within reach, you can still have that - it is all within the vicinity of the guest house (including ''UnderwaterWorld'').
A taxi will cost you 30myr from the jetty and 20myr from the airport to here.
The night market is in different places each night, and walking distance to Soluna's on Thursday nights - great for cheap food. The cafe nearest to here ''Ristoran Almaz'' is Indian - you can get roti chenai (fresh Indian-style 'bread' with dahl) for 1myr and a cup of masala tea for 2myr. Their food is really, really good (open 24 hours).
I had a really nice time here when I was nursing a broken toe - just the kind of place you would want to be laid up in, if you could choose.
