The Andaman Langkawi

Where did we stay in Langkawi? The Andaman Hotel. It is a nice cozy hotel with natural landscape and peaceful environment. They gave us a welcome drink and children were given a sun visor with sunglasses attached. How cool is that?

Anyway, our room is nice but we were advised not to leave the porch door open or the monkeys might go in and who knows what they will do? No, this is not a joke. It happened, but not all the time. Rainforest, remember?
The room is simple and nice for me but we have been expecting something more for its price. My sister who is quite O.C. in cleanliness keeps on pointing certain things like the stain on the curtain and insects splat on the bathroom door. Well, she’s right. Bugs here and there are expected, but if its already squeezed between the door for some time… it should be cleaned and removed. Anyway, here are the pictures of our room:

Since it’s raining cats and dogs, we decided to have an early dinner and early rest so that we can have an early start the following day. We arrived at The Restaurant around 6 p.m. and waited around an hour and a half for our food. Good thing the food of the children were served earlier so only us adults were left hungry. After we have followed up 3 times, only then that we were informed they were having trouble in the kitchen. The whole resto was filled with customers and nobody was eating. Good thing it was raining hard and there’s nothing else to do. Haay!!

Next day was our beach day. The children were excited to play in the sand. We used a canoe and went to the seas. It was fun and we even fed a few fish. You can stand in the water, put bread and some fish will come near. It was a peaceful place where children can roam around.

I honestly prefer a white sand beach such as Boracay over a brown sand beach. But it was still a good stay and the staff were all friendly. It is a place to relax and rejuvenate. I will come back if given the chance.
