Langkawi ~ Pantai Tengah

Beach ~ Stay ~ Dining ~ Entertainment

Pantai Tengah, about 500 metres south of Pantai Cenang is a great place if
you're looking for somewhere to simply chill out. Accommodation consists of low key chalets with more upscale resorts recently built.

Not ideal swimming conditions due to its position on the bay,

but picturesque and quiet.

Stay-in Pantai Tengah

he Lanai beach Resort around the corner at Pantai Tengah does front the sand. Unlike its neighbours, it is small and unpretentious.

For simple lodgings, the place is okay

The Mediterranean-inspired

Awana Porto Malai Langkawi is at the very southern tip facing a marina. This is a three-star resort, clean, with decent service. Deluxe Rooms feature a tiny separate toilet and small separate shower (on different sides of the bedroom) and a washbasin smack next to the bed. It’s a curious arrangement. There is a hair-drier and a standing cupboard. An empty fridge is provided. This is strictly BYO so stock up on your own. No beach.

The Holiday Villa is a typical mid-range holiday place with enough activities

to keep kids happy, a large pool. Not far from here is the larger Aseania Resort Langkawi, a strawberry pink, colonnaded place that works hard to appear Mediterranean. It is not on the beach (though close enough to walk down) and

offers instead a 154m pool claimed to be the longest in Malaysia.

There’s a rockery, waterfall, a wave pool and even a lazy river ride for the kids..

Dining & Entertainment
A growing diversity of cuisines can be found along Pantai Tengah - a place

famous for its first class accommodation and excellent restaurants.

The beachfront Coco Beach Seafood Paradise has a romantic tropical ambience, especially at sunset. Graceful, traditional Malay dance and music can be

enjoyed here occasionally. The Safari Restaurant & Bar has been designed

with mostly natural materials. Live bands will entertain you or you can try

something different by learning how to make batik at their Safari Batik Gallery. Overlooking the marina, Boardwalk Café never fails to pull in the crowd.

Not only does it offer breathtaking views, but also an eclectically influenced

cuisine with a Mediterranean slant.

Cactus Restaurant & Bar offers great music and traditional Asian flavours against

a backdrop of impressive furniture, hand made from mangrove trunks.

For a more homely feel, the friendly owners of Sheela’s Restaurant & Café

will make you welcome. There is a splendid landscape garden and alfresco

dining here is highly recommended. The dish to try?

The famous home-made pizza cannot be beaten.

Palo Palo, the friendly beach bar, is a must for sunset lovers.

Breathtaking views are right at the doorstep. It only serves drinks but you can

have a barbecue and bonfire on request.



If you are looking for something a little different, Urwald Café is tucked

away in the woods and is a really cool hangout

on lazy evenings. Offering an enormous menu with something for everyone,

splendid live music and occasional cultural shows, there is never a dull moment here. Mario’s is recommended for Italian cuisine. Artistry, top class hospitality

and outstanding food make a remarkable combination.

As soon as the sun sets, Sunset Karaoke & Discotheque comes alive.

This nightspot features a spacious dance floor, karaoke boxes for shy singers

and great music. If you are looking for a wilder evening Coco Jam Fun Pub will

keep you swaying to the infectious live tunes. Considered to be the best entertainment spot on the island, this place is packed every night with regulars

and visitors. With its beachside location, one can go for romantic

walks in the moonlight for a breather.

Another choice would be the Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant with nice open views in the far south at Pantai Tengah, and Japanese Restaurant and beach bar in the same vicinity

Padang Matsirat
A quiet and peaceful location in Langkawi's green and peaceful interior

and originally a series of padi fields.

Dining at sea does not mean you have to be on an ocean liner.

The floating restaurant, Kelong Seri Melayu, will give you a dining experience

you will never forget. Black Henry Discotheque gives you the opportunity to

kick off your shoes and dance the night away.
