Whenever you plan to explore Langkawi in Malaysia, think of staying in this genuinely pastoral retreat. Set in the Langkawi lagoon village, the resort gives you an irreplaceable opportunity to live for some days as a true Malaysian.
The resort is adorned with the authentic, Malaysian mannered wooden houses that are over 100 years old and stand today on a previous site of coconut plantation. Flanked by the manicured foliage and boasting one of the most famous Langkawi restaurants, the Bon Ton Restaurant & Resort is an indispensable stay option for the proficient traveler.
Speaking about its houses, there are 8 customary Malaysian houses. The rate doubles starting from MYR 490. Among the amenities, you can explore its art and textiles gallery, free internet access in the restaurant zone, massages, private dining room, massages, magazines, books, music, and DVDs. In addition, in rooms, you can use a TV, DVD/CD player, toaster, tea/coffee-making facilities, and fridge. Coming to the poolside that is surrounded by palms giving you the true ambience of Malaysia, the pool zone includes a Jacuzzi area, which is like shave of blue and grass adorning the white cuts. Well, the sun loungers ensure some of the breathtaking vistas of the mountains as well as the coconut groves.
The check-out time is 12 pm, but depending on the availability of the rooms, adjustments are allowed.
An admirable service here is the assignment of a personal butler for 24-hours. This service begins right from the airport from where you are picked and offers a myriad of services such as ironing and newspaper delivery. In addition, this man at service of yours can aid in fastening your activities, excursions, and restaurant reservations.
For babies, baths and cots are offered without any cost. At your request, the staff can also arrange for baby sitting for RM10 per 60 minutes. However, you need to ask for it before 24 hours. Taking care of the babies, the baby monitoring tool is also on offer. For the young ones to play, pool toys are in plenty here.
If you have pets with you, do not hesitate in bringing them with you here. Simply smile now as there are also no strict rules or restrictions for them.
There are 8 houses here each of which is an antique timber construction. But, all of them are unique of which 5 are adorned with freestanding wooden bath tubs as well as the open-air bathrooms. However, according to me, the hot favorite of many guests is the Palm Villa because of the elaborately carved windows as well as the opulent turquoise and lime green decor. All of these are wonderfully delivered by using the traditional stuff, antiques, and vigilantly selected enhancing details.
This one in its own right is just one of the best in Malaysia. So, you just cannot leave without tasting its delicious cuisines. This famous restaurant is named Nam that is master in mixing the Eastern and Western cuisine decorated with the flavor of spice for offering an ideal and inventive menu. I am sure you would like to try something different. So, go for Nyonga, the signature serving dish that makes you eat 9 Chinese and Malay dishes – all together served on a leaf of banana.
Want to know about the ideal dress code? Well, there is no specific one. You can wear anything that comes in the category of the laid-back loungewear. Are you eager to site on the best table? Well, rob Table 1, 2, or L6 for being on a front row seat to watch the sun going down and also the water buffalo chilling itself in the lagoon as you dine.
The restaurant timing for the lunch is up to 5 pm, while the dinner is served until 11 pm. Mezze is only available until 7 pm. In case of drinks, they are served until 12:30 am. The room service will bring the chosen items from the Nam menu until 11 pm.
The restaurant also holds the Chin Chin lounge bar that is of 60 years old. In this wooden Chinese house packed with the antique ambience, you can sip its specialties such as liqueur-coffees and cocktails. While you are at the sunset deck, sip in a Short Island Iced Tea as the most tourists do.
Tip: Do not forget your binoculars to gaze at the shining night sky while reclining on a lounger.
