What tourists are saying about the Frangipani Langkawi Resort and Spa

“View and location of room was excellent”

Very relaxing with with an outstanding view from the beach villa rooms. Having the beach and two pools on your doorstep is awesome.

The private outdoor showers are excellent. Staff were friendly and willing to help. Food was good. Drinks were cold.

“Awesome experience!”

The food was absolutely delicious. Staff are always pleasant and always willing to be of assistance. The villas and family room were beautiful.

Activities and signboards around the hotel makes your vacation worthwhile. Just need to maintain the upkeep in order to have that 5 star experience. All in all a wonderful place and experience for a vacation.

“A very good match between price and quality”

We enjoyed our stay at this resort during our honeymoon in early May 2015. The place was very nice indeed.

It had a clean and uncrowded beach, beautiful plants and flowers all around, and very friendly and helpful personnel. We also liked the location of the place, as it was just 5-10 minutes walk from shops, restaraunts, and etc.

Rooms were not luxury and lacked wi-fi, but it was about enojoying the outdoors: water, sun, sand, and greenery. We would recommend the place for those who seek good quality for a fair price.

“Great location to stay”

I was in frangipani resort as a couple ans we spent 5 nights.

Pros: quiet resort, pantai tengah beach just in front of the pool, free wifi in lobby and pool areas. Nice pool and great view of the andaman islands. The breakfast has a wonderfull view of the andaman ocean and the food is good. The frangipani trees give the property a cool and romantic look.

Nots: flies at night and for me poor maintainance of the pool green area. Jacuzzi was on but cold.

I think overall it has a goid relation price/quality as it is 10min walking from pantai cenang center.

We rented a motorbike for 25rm a day and it was easy and safe to go everywhere in the island. Taxi from airport costs 22rm.
Just outside the hotel you have places to eat, do some spa or rent motorbikes and tours.

Room Tip: Villas are big confortable, have a small terrace outside, safe and a good bathroom with shower

“Very pleasant low rise beachside resort”

Went as a couple for five days of quiet relaxation (during low season). Very nice resort, gardens, pool, bar and restaurant. Helpful staff, clean and comfortable room, wifi in restaurant, pool and reception areas etc. Good choice at breakfast.

Not particularly modern or upmarket but that was what we wanted. Lovely beach. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Obviously beachfront rooms are the best location

The Frangipani Langkawi Resort and Spa is already carving a name for itself as a sustainable eco-resort.

Why stay at Frangipani Langkawi Resort and Spa

Some two-storey villas for tourists.

At the resort, the catch-phrases frequently used are reduce, reuse, recover, recycle – compost and recover energy and dispose. All rooms come with energy saving air-conditioners and are fully furnished with recycled furniture.

Nothing is thrown away or wasted. Vegetation is pruned and trimmed regularly and the leaves as well as kitchen refuse are turned into compost. Vegetables are organically grown and served daily to guests.

Driftwood becomes part of the landscape with so much more being done. Paint containers are turned into rubbish bins and wood purchased from Jogjakarta to help the earthquake victims there are made into furniture.

Attractions at the resort

The Frangipani Boat, a boat stranded on the beach after the 2004 tsunami, has been turned into a cocktail place.

Frangipani Resort is named after the plant and frangipani blooms add beautiful colour to the resort.

The resort also wants to be a role model as far as the Geopark project is concerned.

It is working at being a reputable eco resort. “It is just not about the resort, but also the people of Langkawi.

Conservation efforts by the hotel

We want to educate them on the importance of maintaining the island as a geopark when we receive the status,” said its environment education officer Nurul Fatanah Zahari.

“We bring in students from local schools and take them around on education tours to show them our many conservation efforts. It is important to start them young.”

The Unesco defines a geopark as a “territory encompassing one or more sites of scientific importance, not only for geological reasons but also by virtue of its archaeological, ecological or cultural value”.

Nearby places of interest

“This is one resort where you can just walk in and out of. There are no elevators and everything is within walking distance including Pantai Tengah and Pantai Cenang,” said general manager Egon M. Lassmann.

“Most of our guests go from chalet or room to restaurant and beach. Some don’t leave the resort at all for the entire duration of their stay.”

Unlike in the major cities, Lassmann says, it is safe to walk everywhere, especially Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah.

The place has many shops, bars, restaurants, cafes and duty-free outlets, so it is no surprise to find resort guests making their way there after dinner to enjoy Langkawi’s nightlife.

Some resorts are facing the sea.

“On the beach, guests can lie around or have their sporting activities uninterrupted. There are no traders to annoy or disturb holiday makers.”

The four-star resort enjoys an occupancy rate of 55 to 65 per cent. While Frangipani resort gets its fair share of foreigners, Lassmann said the domestic market is just as important.
