La Pari Pari is a popular haven for those seeking the quiet respite of laidback Pantai Tengah. Although located slightly inland from the main thoroughfare, they are just a 15-minute walk from the seaside as well as the livelier Pantai Cenang scene. La Pari Pari’s 1.5 acre tropical setting is worth dodging the odd mud puddle to reach.

Bringing a touch of the ethereal to the island of Langkawi, starting with their moniker being inspired by the Malay word for fairies (pari-pari), their stark white bungalows are nearly blinding against a vast green backdrop of a well-manicured landscape.

Poolside bungalows work for us!

The hotel aimed to create a setting in which the white simplicity of the bungalows did not compete with the surrounding beauty of nature. Or in their words: “No need for more colours when we are surrounded by such existing natural beauty.” It works.

The six bungalows each house two side-by-side suites that face a central garden and spacious lawn. Separate entries into small fenced-in courtyards allow guests some privacy, with a small table and chairs to kick back in. Room interiors keep the minimalist colour scheme and create an airy feel with a plush bed taking centre stage.

A breath of retro fresh air.

Amenities include air-con, hot-water shower, minibar, safe, flatscreen TV, WiFi and a daily replenished coffee/tea service — it’s really everything you want in a neat little bungalow nutshell. Hairdryers, irons, infant cribs and personal care items are also available for use on request and they also include a continental brekkie for two.

A perk at La Pari-Pari is an inviting saltwater pool just steps from your doorway and some lovely shade trees to lounge under as well. With La Pari-Pari being family friendly, there is plenty of room for kids to run off a few duty-free chocolates without disturbing the zen-like quiet too much.

Maximum impact with minimalist approach.

Aside from the on-site restaurant Fat Cupid, plenty of dining options line the nearby main road, in addition to a sundry shop or two, spas and a variety of other handy available services, but their own restaurant also has a full bar for those evening cocktails or morning Bloody Marys.
