My Experience At Berjaya Langkawi


Hey everyone !

I am just back from my much awaited Langkawi trip. I had been craving to go for a vacation since long but I wasn’t sure if I would be able to handle my baby without help around. Now that she has developed a routine, I and my husband thought of visiting Langkawi  which is considered to be the heaven on earth and staying in Berjaya Resorts turned out to be one of the best experiences of our lives.

Langkawi is a small island which has a population of just 65,000. It’s a tax free island and famous for chocolates, liquor and cigarettes. You can find variety of duty free chocolates at real cheap prices here. One of my friends got a whole suitcase full of chocolates from there. My husband too had similar intentions but I didn’t let him fulfill as I know half of the chocolates will be eaten by me only. Still we ended up getting at least 2-3 years quota of chocolates from there (I know K would disagree here albeit).

We stayed in Berjaya Resort which was one of the main attraction .To give you an idea of how the place is, I took the below picture from their page.

They have a variety of rooms such as rain forest chalet, sea view chalet etc.We stayed in premier chalet on water. It was a spacious room with all the amenities, large bathrooms and balcony. From the balcony we could see the vast unending Andaman sea till horizon. To our good luck, it also rained for a while on the first day and the rainbow welcomed us. We spent lot of time there sitting in the balcony, playing with Anvika , having our lunch and reading books.

Watching sun set was an experience in itself.There were small boats which will always stay there and will light up at night – giving the sea a spectacular look.

Barjaya has six restaurants and we explored few of them. Our obvious favourite was Indian restaurant. I loved the food there and ended up trying everything in the menu.

One of the evenings, K surprised me with a cake and room decoration. As 28th Feb was our anniversary and we were traveling that day he made up for it. A splendid bouquet, chocolate cake with red wine and lots of flowers around with a room on the water. What more I could have asked for !

Next day we had dinner on the beach for which special booking has to be made. It was really romantic. Having dinner in front of the sea that too on a private beach. Beach is very clean and has white sand. Water is more or less clear and I loved going for a walk with Anvika and K there.

There were fresh fruits also which were given to us when we checked in. One more thing which I would like to appreciate about Berjaya was the staff which was really friendly.After a whole night of air travel with an eight month old I was tired and my head was banging.We reached Barjaya at 10 am and there official check in time is 2 pm but they gave the room at 10 itself as we had made prior booking. This was quite a help .

This is one of the cafe where thai food was served. Cool winds with live music and water all around made it perfect. This cafe was just next to our room and we enjoyed it on the last day .

In Langkawi no body bargains and food is available at affordable price. In Berjaya, meals is slightly expensive (but not much), that is because of the Indian currency rate which is deteriorating day by day :(. If your currency is dollars then you can have even more fun there.

I swam every day there and sat on the beach for long hours with my baby. It was just awesome. I am back with a nice tan and Anvika. I think she had more fun than both of us. Will write more about our experience and what other things which we did and of course about my duty free shopping. Right now I need to settle down a bit and Anvika is all cranky. I think she wants to go back to Langkawi and so does her mommie 😛
