Langkawi-Rebak Marina resort(Staycation)

After spending 2 days on foot in KL(read the blog here),it was time for some relaxation and white sandy beaches.It takes 45min from KL by air.Langkawi is an archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast.Langkawi means reddish brown eagle in Malay.

Airport
Langkawi is famous for its crystal clear water,beautiful beaches,diving,duty free alcohol etc.Rich in flora and fauna surrounded by picturesque beaches,this is a place for the romantics,no wonder this place attracts a lot of honeymooners and couples.
Port Langkasuka
We stayed at the Rebak Marina Resort,which is an island itself.It takes around 15 min from the Port Langkasuka to the island by jetty.The port is hardly 5 min from the airport.The hotel gives the  airport pick up and drop off service complimentary.A Taj jetty from the port would pick you up and take to the island.
Lobby

Our room was huge with a walk in wardrobe and a big enough washroom.The cottages are made of wooden which give you a feeling of being in the middle of a forest.

The island has a marina and this resort.Away from the crowd,it has got everything you need.This unspoiled gem is rich in fauna and flora.You are amidst a forest.The beauty and hospitality of Taj made us choose this hotel.In case you want to explore Langkawi,you can stay on Land,instead of an island.There are bikes and cars available on rent.





There is a big pool with excellent view and a bar.

Beach recliners are all over the beach.
The private beach has a lot of crabs and fishes.It's fun to watch them running around.


The restaurant,bars and study are quite good.Brekakfast buffet is for 44RM per person and dinner buffet is priced at 85RM per person.The spread is mouth watering and extensive.Lot of vegetarian Indian options as well.The staff and the chef would  make sure you have a hearty meal.The chef spoke personally to us and made sure we liked the food.


This was our fav spot in the resort,we sat here for hours watching the birds,speed boats go by or simply staring at the sea.It was bliss.






Cottages

There are jetties running to and fro from the resort to the mainland.The staff would give you the timings when you check in.
The Marina


Helluva good time
You can spot some exotic birds flying around the island.There are numerous activities on the resort,nature walk being one of them,where you would learn a lot about the flora and fauna on this beautiful island.Make sure you don't miss it.
