On the western side of Langkawi Island, about twelve kilometres north of Pantai Cenang, lies Pantai Kok, a beautiful powdery sand bay fringed by limestone hills and forest. Quieter and more secluded than Pantai Cenang, the area makes an ideal romantic getaway or a tranquil honeymoon place.

Four new resorts, a new golf course and a replica of the Thai palace used in

the film "Anna and the King" are among the other attractions.
If you're feeling energetic you can go jungle trekking or explore the local caves. Pantai Kok has a few bars and restaurants but it's mainly a place to simply

relax in the natural beauty of the beach and bay.

Stay-in Pantai Kok / Burau Bay

Whipping on up the coast you’ll pass the Perdana Hotel, Langkasuka Beach

Resort and the surprisingly upbeat Langkawi Lagoon Resort.

Langkawi Lagoon is unimpressive on the outside but is a different story once you enter the lobby and cross over to the seaside. Here’s there’s lawns, a small pool, nice breezy views, and the extension “Sea Village” offering Malay-style stilted accommodation over water. There is a spa on site. The place does not score

overly high for décor (which is mishmash) but it wins out with its low-key

simplicity and inspirational touches. Not a bad spot for families.

Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort is showing its years but is going through a thorough facelift which should see it emerge lighter, breezier and far more contemporary. The lobby will feature full length windows offering a panoramic

view of the sea. This is a 38 acre garden compound that runs up and down the verdant hillside with heady snatches of ocean view here and there.

Electric buggy rides are the norm to transfer from room to lobby or elsewhere.

There is the Chavana Spa (by Mandara) for spoiling rubs and a small beach area. Much of the seaside is rocky and, while scenic, swimming and wading is

not your best bet. There’s mud and pebbles underfoot as the tide drains.


Getting into Burau Bay, the Mutiara Burau Bay has long been a good-value favourite. The place is unfussy and friendly. Simple cabanas run along the sides

of a central garden that leads onto a wonderful Robinson Crusoe

cove fringed by tall palms.


On the other side of the sweeping bay are the red-tile roofs of the

Berjaya Langkawi Beach & Spa Resort Water Suites.

 The Berjaya gets better as you walk down from the lobby and approach the beach. There is a busy swimming pool with rock formations, a bar, and plenty of kids splashing about. The place is busy and involves a fair bit of walking up and down the hillside. The water suites, on stilts, are far preferable to the hillside chalets some which are a bit drab.


Dining & Entertainment
Exotic, exciting and vibrant is what you will feel at the Burau Beat Pub.

Featuring hot music, the live band will entertain you till the wee hours of the morning. But if you are looking for something a little more laid back, hop over to

Sunken Pool Bar and Beach Bar and simply sink into one of the sofas and relax. There is no loud music here--just the marvellous sounds of

Mother Nature to soothe your soul.

Telaga Harbour
Fast-developing Telaga Harbour at Perdana Quay, Pantai Kok, is a mini Singapore Boat Quay look-alike with trendy eateries and bars like the USSR Restaurant and Cuba Libre. There are a few fashion boutiques sprinkled

around as well to cater for tourists and the smart set moored along the boardwalk

in gleaming yachts. 

Opposite the bay, Petronas Quay also offers snacks and alfresco dining.
