Sunset Beach Resort


What we say: 3.5 stars

This tucked away beachfront hotel is located on the least congested end of Jalan Pantai Cenang as it nears the T-junction connection to Jalan Pantai Tengah. Look for the etched and weathered concrete sign on the side of the main road and you will find the resort beneath the towering trees. As you enter the traditional Malay-style reception and lounge area, you’ll see a gateway opening into a lavishly landscaped corridor that leads between the cottages and onward to the beach.

Yes, we were here!

Sunset Beach Resort offers 28 rooms that line either side of the dense tropical garden.The cottages are of simple brick and each room has a private veranda amid the lush foliage, facing the central walkway. The modestly sized, air-con rooms exude the warmth of Malay culture with their hardwood furniture, traditional carvings, batik fabrics and local art; bathrooms have hot water showers and the beach is stumbling distance away. Free WiFi is available in the lobby lounge. The walls of the central garden are adorned with old Malay carvings, stonework and sculptures that give the entire area the feel of a lost tropical village. As you approach the beach there is a glassed-in dining area, where breakfast is served.

Cosy nook to call your own.

This is the northern part of Pantai Tengah that sits rather untouched as development mostly happens on the opposing end of Pantai Cenang. Sparsely populated and pristine due to a lack of easy public access and other beachfront resorts, this is one of the quintessential beach spots of Langkawi. Though there are no hammocks, plenty of comfortable lounge chairs will do the trick.

The resort restaurant is is only open for breakfast, but the well established Oasis and the more recently opened Tattoo bar and restaurants are just next door. Open to the sea breeze, and with views that command the beach, both of these local establishments serve up cold cocktails and local and Western cuisine. There is also Sugar, about 150 metres south along the beach, a new buzzy nightspot and a good sundowner location.

The ultimate tropical walkway.
