Tucked away amid a century-old coconut plantation and bordered by wetlands, Bon Ton Resort Langkawi began as a seafood restaurant 20 years ago and has slowly evolved into a rather special place to stay. Eight traditional wooden Malay kampung houses and a Chinese provisions shop have been added over the years, creating a kampung-like setting for the popular resort.




Traditional tropical luxury at its best.

The original buildings, ranging from 60 to 120 years old, have been dismantled and transported from their previous locations in Langkawi and on the mainland to be meticulously restored here. The various styles show the subtle differences of regional Malaysia.

Some things just get better with age.

Each of the eight houses embrace the simplicity of Malay kampung architecture, being built on raised stilts with steeply gabled rooflines and shuttered windows to promote natural cooling. Antique furniture and fabrics from throughout the region create lovely interiors.

Though traditional, the houses have creature comforts such as air-con, TV and DVD players, kettles, fridges and even toasters. They also have freestanding wooden bathtubs, five of which are outdoors for that special al fresco star-gazing experience. In addition, all bathrooms have modern showers for a quick splash as opposed to a slow soak. Though rack rates are high, they will offer a 30% to 50% discount depending on occupancy and season; check Agoda or contact them directly to see what you can shave off.

Bon Ton Resort is also known for its LASSie (Langkawi Animal Shelter and Sanctuary Foundation) programme, which provides a veterinary clinic plus animal rescue operations for the island. Part of the proceeds from the gift shop go to fund the programme, which also provides internships for veterinarian students and a volunteer programme for both residents and visitors.

With only eight villas available, you’ll need to book in advance to be sure of a room. If they are booked out when you want to come, adjacent Temple Tree Resort is the younger sister of Bon Ton and is architecturally more reflective of Malaysia’s colonial past.

With 12 rooms and 13 suites in eight different style villas, there is plenty to choose from (take a single room to an entire villa). All have modern amenities, such as air-con, flat screen TV and modern bathrooms starting at 570 ringgit. The 90-year-old Eurasian timber-framed house at the centre of the resort offers a bar, lounge and dining space to enjoy a flavour of yesteryear.
