I used to be in Langkawi over the weekend for a dose of solar, sea and surf (not forgetting the opposite s – spirits ;)). It’s a couple of 1 hour flight from KL and as quickly as I exited the airport, there was an indication with “Poh Huai Bin” ready for me.
It was the concierge from Tanjung Rhu Resort and I used to be happy with the luxurious van that supplied airport switch to the resort (full with the driving force providing you a moist towel as quickly as you make your self comfy).
Tanjung Rhu resort is likely one of the finest resorts in Langkawi, or so I hear. I used to be there to test it out for myself. The foyer is constructed in accordance with an open idea with varied water options (of the pure form), a pleasant cool sea breeze and birds chirping.
There’s even an actual, reside hornbill (and a six foot monitor lizard they name Jack). The check-in could be very problem free – it’s performed in your room! This brings customized examine in to an entire new degree. Heh!
Your baggage is dropped within the foyer to be ferried to your room later whereas a pleasant girl reveals you your room, provides you a moist towel (everybody wants a towel), takes out some ice cubes and pours a drink for you.
She fills in all of your particulars too! I feel each resort ought to supply this service. In-room check-in FTW!
The room is giant and spacious – it has an enormous tub and a huge mattress which was somewhat wasted on one individual. 🙂
It’s the small touches that makes Tanjung Rhu such an opulent place – Time journal on a sensible shelf beside the mattress, a balcony overlooking one of many swimming pools, and sweets at evening in a correct picket field as a substitute of paper.
There is a cause Tanjung Rhu is the resort/resort with the third highest spend in Malaysia – they deal with their visitors very well, with an incredible reminiscence prowess which permits them to recollect your identify and greet you whenever you stroll previous them! MENSA grade, significantly.
Oh, and one more reason could possibly be the RM 155 champagne cocktail flutes, of which I had just a few. 😉
There’s no lack of actions to do in Tanjung Rhu – we went for a Mangrove Tour (RM 220) which brings you to:
Monkeys – Langkawi is INFESTED with primates, we even noticed a household on the way in which to the airport
The mangrove swamp
This jogs my memory of a sure scene in Apocalypse Now
This one brings again reminiscences of The Two Towers
Eagles and kites
A fishing village…that includes the wonderful spitting fish!
We took turns to function the boat too – I feel I freaked out the tour information once I put it on full throttle. 😉
I’ve to reiterate that it’s of utmost significance to put on flip flops on this tour because you’re on a ship.
Leave your mosquito repellent at house because the bats right here eats all of them so there’s none! 🙂
I additionally went for a swim in one in every of their swimming pools – they’ve a number of, with one reserved for adults solely. One fascinating factor about Tanjung Rhu is that they restrict the quantity of youngsters within the resort to about 5 and of the eating places – The Rhu – doesn’t enable children inside.
However, among the finest options in Tanjung Rhu is the outstanding sandbar which makes it attainable so that you can truly WALK to the Turtle Islands over yonder. They have an superior spa and therapeutic massage too!
Tanjung Rhu Resort room charges ranges from RM 1,850 to RM 3,250 per evening. I like to recommend going for the all inclusive package deal the place all meals and drinks are free, irrespective of how a lot you eat. It additionally consists of room service, however sadly not alcohol.
