Budget Hotels Langkawi – Melati Tanjung Motel Langkawi -backpacking Langkawi with backpackies

For our last backpacking trip to Langkawi, we decided to go a little something different from our last trip- staying in the dorms at Gecko Guest house. Don’t get us wrong, Gecko was excellent with their friendly backpacker atmosphere and all, but we decided to splurge a little and have ourselves a beach front chalet instead this time. The idea of waking up to the clear turquoise water and skies some how seemed so appealing after coming back from our trip from Koh Lipe. We didnt want to have “beautiful sea and beach” syndrome. You know after a week in heaven @ Koh Lipe. It makes you not want to leave Paradise.
So after reading all the reviews on the hotels along Cenang. (We still chose Cenang beach, due to the convenience of having plenty of shops and eateries till late at night). we decided to bunk in at Melati Tanjung Motel. Here are our pictures and comments

Melati Tanjung Motel- Fantastic Hospitality with a great beach view

It was nice that the place was run by a very nice Malay family. They were most helpful.

The LCD TV only showed the local channels. Pity tho. It would have been lovely to kick back, with a pack of ice cool beers and watch the evening Match between Manchester United and Arsenal.

Ensuite toilet and shower

The toilets were clean! And the water power was powerful enough ! 😀
(not like those cheap hotels where the water was worse than a person peeing)

Frontage of the motel- the rooms are facing one of the nicest beaches in Langkawi

The beach view is fantastic! Fresh breeze and plenty of activity on the beach! The beach has plenty of water sports and is great for swims, dips, sun tanning and water sports.

Just beside the motel is the best pub/bar in Langkawi- Babylon! Dont worry, they wont be too noisy. They only play reggae music! (it’s a great place to hang out at night)! Triple plus points for Melati Tanjung Motel!

    I´m from Germany and I would like to spend a few days with my husband and our son (19 and 24 years) in a guesthouse (I prefer the Malati Tangjung or …) on Langkawi. We would arrive on the 23.12.12 and leave Langkawi on the 4. o1.2013.

    I need the Guesthouse from the 23.12-27.12 and from the 2.01.- 04.01. because I would like take a ferry to Koh Lipe in the middle of the time.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Best wishes

    • Hi there Betina!
      We just blog about this place to let you know of what to expect of this place.
      Usually we would tell our readers to contact the hotels themselves.
      But in this case, we will help you post your inquiry up on our facebook page. The owner of the motel is a follower of our group. I will msg her to reply ASAP.
