Ombak Villa Langkawi Lagoon Resort – Where Traditional Malay Charm Meets Modern Luxury

After a really long time, I was finally able to travel to Langkawi again. The last time I was there was probably more than a decade ago. Although I was there for work, I still wanted to be able to relax for the weekend and decided stay at Langkawi Lagoon Resort.

And I forgot to bring my camera along. Again. So forgive me for my iphoneography. It was my first time flying with Malindo Air and the glutton in me was happy that we got snacks. (¬‿¬)

There’s always something about the sky that always leaves me in awe. Maybe it’s because I love the colour blue? Perhaps. But the clouds are amazing.

IMG_1736After a 5 minute drive from the airport, I finally arrived at the hotel, ready to do a little exploring. The resort offers three type of accommodation concepts – the Beach Front Hotel, the Sea Village and the Ombak Villa which is the room that I stayed  in.

IMG_1978IMG_1746Being greeted by friendly staff is how a nice holiday starts and it couldn’t have been any better. After checking in, I was offered a welcome drink in the Bayu Restaurant while I was waiting for my room. I’m guessing it was mango juice mixed with some other fruit but it was refreshing after being under the hot sun.

I really like how the hotel is a blend of traditional Malay architecture with some modern contemporary interior design.

After a short wait, my room was finally ready and I got to ride in their hotel buggy to my room. Actually, my room was one of the closest ones to the lobby so it was a little funny that the ride was so short. (ᗒᗜᗕ)

I stayed on the top floor so I got a really great view from my balcony. I really love the design of the room and wouldn’t mind lazing around in here for the whole weekend. Okay, maybe not the whole weekend. Work called and I had to take the chance to explore a little bit of the island.

I think that this is one of the best spots to enjoy the sunset by the Andaman sea.

There’s a cute, romantic little arch here that can be used for a small beach wedding and it is also where couples can have a romantic candlelight dinner together. You can have a look at the Romantic Retreat Package on their website.

IMG_1973The architect definitely had great taste when it came to designing this place. This was taken from the lobby area.

IMG_1992IMG_1999IMG_2022 IMG_2021 Just next to it is the Beach Front Hotel where you can find a small beach area where you can play beach volley ball and beach soccer. There are also paddle boat cruisers if you’re up for it.

I did get to do a little sight seeing. Had to go up to the Langkawi Sky Bridge.

IMG_1858I have no idea what they were doing.

If you’re curious about how rice is harvested, you can stop by Laman Padi, a rice garden and museum.

IMG_1865IMG_1933Of course, I couldn’t leave Langkawi without seeing the famous large sculpture of an eagle at Dataran Lang.

Although I was only there for a short time due to work, it was a great weekend. For more things to do in Langkawi, you can head over to Naturally Langkawi for more things to do on the island and the best places to eat and stay.

What We Loved: I definitely loved the environment and how peaceful it was. It’s only 5 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from one of Langkawi’s popular beaches, Chenang Beach.

What We Didn’t Love: I don’t really have any complaints about it except that maybe the buffet breakfast could have been a little better.
