The Andaman

Langkawi, Malaysia

The hotel

A slice of paradise, The Andaman Langkawi is the perfect tropical hideaway. Its surrounds are truly breathtaking with lush, green rainforest in abundance and a long stretch of beach. As well as a luxurious spa with a full range of treatments, there are water sports galore and plenty of opportunity to get to grips with nature independently or on guided walks and tours. Enjoy a well-earned break, relaxing by the poolside perhaps or lingering over a long in either The Restaurant overlooking the freeform swimming pool or the beachfront Tepian Laut. Els Club Teluk Datai Golf course is located a mere four minutes from the resort, so if you fancy a few holes remember to bring your clubs!

The Andaman is set between a 10 mil year rainforest and the Andaman Sea. Despite being here multiple times, the beauty of this place never fail to take our breath away. We were upgraded to the Andaman Seaview Exec Suite and Executive Pool Suite. Both rooms were well appointed and very spacious. The Andaman Seaview Suite has breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea and the Executive Pool Suite direct access to the beach. Absolutely love the ability to keep our doors open and wake up to the sight and sound of the sea (despite being warned of monkeys, we didn’t have an issue - probably due to the fact that it was raining quite a bit when we were there). We also love the use of sealed reusable water bottles in the room in replacement of plastic mineral bottles. The spa was running promotions, and we booked for a couple of massages. Very good Malay Urut here in the spa villas. There is a one hour limit to massages due to covid sop, and it’s definitely not enough. The sea breeze during massage is super relaxing and time flies by too quickly. There are currently only 2 restaurants open during this period- Tepian and the main restaurant. Surprisingly, the food quality has improved quite a bit compared to when we were last here in 2019. The is a considerable wait for food at Tepian during our time dining there,but service at the main restaurant is pretty prompt. Elite recognition is very good and we thoroughly enjoy the cocktail hour at Jentayu Lounge. We would like to thank Audrey for looking after us very well during our stay, and Raj from the restaurant for Read less

Great hospitality, great food and spectacular view of Andaman sea. A place of tranquility - beach and jungle in between. All staffs are helpful and friendly including cleaners. Great efforts in preserving the coral reefs- their coral rehabilitation programme. Will definitely come again.

We were in Redang last month and was very traumatised with the so-called "top" hotel there. So when we arrived at the Andaman, all the fears disappear. You can definitely feel the welcome the moment you set your foot here. The staff was very welcoming, attentive and full with smiles. They tried their best to accommodate our requests. They even allowed us to extend our check out time since our flight was delayed. we stayed in one of the rooms with the sea view and it was breathtaking. the breakfast buffet selection was adequate and tasty. the beach is private with many washed corals and if you are lucky, you might encounter some animals there. the only downside for this hotel is the location which requires you to drive to get to the nearest eateries and attractions. hence we feel this place is best for honeymooners or couple. otherwise, by the end of our stay, we wished we had stayed longer. Good job to the team and hope the Andaman can maintain this excellent standard. Read less

Resort's location is already a spot for relaxation and the overal ambiente is amazingly designed for that althoguh plenty of activities are possible. The building looks a bit old but is well maintained and matching the highest standard for cleaness and security. Got upgraded to a room with ocean view which was a nice welcome from the management. All staff is incredible attentive and polite, everyone comes with smile and being polite in return is easy. Breakfast was just excellent, the bakery does an amazing job, fresh pressed juices are available and everyone can find food to match own taste. Going outside, pool is nice and the private beach is just breathtaking, plenty of place to relax, walk or swim. The resort is located a bit far from town, so considered it if you want to visit the island but fact that traffic is not an issue, makes all travelling very fast and easy. The only complain I want to make is on the mattress, to me is very important a good undisturbed sleep and I am sorry to say it is time to change, either brand (I read Sealy) or specs. Read less

We took adjoining rooms for 4 adults & 2 teenagers. From the time of booking to departing, the quality of service is faultless. One of us had just had a major surgery and is feeding only via tube. Nothing was too much trouble for the breakfast team.....liquidising porridge for him every morning and delivering to the room when it was late arriving.… Read more
We took adjoining rooms for 4 adults & 2 teenagers. From the time of booking to departing, the quality of service is faultless. One of us had just had a major surgery and is feeding only via tube. Nothing was too much trouble for the breakfast team.....liquidising porridge for him every morning and delivering to the room when it was late arriving. We have to single out Aliya and Naim, in particular, for their brilliant service. Always with a smile. Thanks both & all. Read less
