Hotel Critique: Casa del Mar Langkawi – A Peaceful Retreat that tends to make you really feel like Dwelling


I returned to Langkawi with the mission to make a new travel video, not necessarily about Langkawi itself, much more like a video about how we really feel when we travel and how very easily we really feel house at
foreign locations.


Specifically, Casa del Mar – the spot I stayed – gave me such a feeling. I spent five
fantastic days there, finding to know the employees operating at the hotel, but also meeting locals and exploring the surroundings. 


For the duration of my time in Langkawi, my videographer Zeniqe and I attempted to film as a great deal as
achievable to capture Langkawi Island, displaying a handful of glimpses of Casa del Mar, but also developing a story about the beauty of travel. Before I get into all the specifics about Casa del
Mar, have a appear at the video (and let me know what you consider!!)



Previously, I wrote two travel guides about Langkawi. If you want enable with your Langkawi trip, also verify out my other articles about Enjoyable Items to do in Langkawi, and if you are up for anything fancy, bookmark my guide to Langkawi for Luxury and Adventure Seekers.


Currently I am writing about Casa del Mar in Langkawi, and if you are seeking for a peaceful island retreat with friendly employees that will treat you like family members, then you have come to the appropriate spot.
Let’s commence!

Casa del Mar – Dwelling away from house


Ahead of my arrival at Casa del Mar, I study a handful of testimonials on Tripadvisor about the resort, and I was
amazed to see an overwhelming quantity of five star testimonials. More than 2000 men and women left a overview on Tripadvisor, and at the time of writing, Casa del Mar is ranked as #1 hotel in Pantai
Cenang, the touristic center of Langkawi. 


The place is superb if you want to discover nearby surroundings. There are lots of restaurants, bars, and purchasing possibilities inside walking distance. But even if you appear for some
serenity, you can loosen up by the beach or take a stroll in the rice paddies across Casa del Mar.


Casa del Mar is a brilliant decision if you are preparing a romantic getaway in Langkawi
with your companion – The resort presents a quiet oasis for couples or fantastic pals, seeking for the ideal getaway without having distractions.

Rooms at Casa del Mar


The 4-star boutique resort offers 34 gorgeous sea view rooms with amazing beach and ocean views. My spacious beachfront area featured a Mediterranean style decor, combined
with dark wooden furnishings. A huge comfy bed with lots of pillows assured a excellent night’s sleep. 


I enjoy it when hotels offer you bathrobes and slippers, it tends to make me really feel like house. Yes, I am a single of these who walks about in a bathrobe half of the day. And considering that all rooms have either a balcony,
small garden or a patio with some furnishings, it really is completely acceptable to put on all day a bathrobe in your small oasis.


Needless to say, all rooms are air conditioned, there is a security box for valuables (huge adequate for your laptop), coffee maker, tea and kettle, complimentary WiFi, LCD Television with satellite channels
(which I under no circumstances utilized), iPod docking station and each day newspapers.


There was a jar with scrumptious homemade cookies in my area, and I was delighted the cookies had been refilled each day. I want each hotel would offer homemade cookies to their


Right here a handful of much more photos of my remarkable beachfront area…



Facilities &amp Activities


Casa del Mar presents lots of facilities, you can devote your entire time just at the resort without having finding bored. I enjoyed a relaxing massage remedy at the in property
spa, cocktails in the Jacuzzi, I swam a handful of lapses in the swimming pool. There is even a fitness center for much more fitness activities, but I decided to concentrate on the much more relaxing elements.


The hotel has its personal library with books in diverse languages. If reading is not your issue, you could take benefit of the no cost bikes and discover nearby surroundings (verify out the rice
paddies across!)


Langkawi is popular for water sports, ask at the front desk for some entertaining activities such as parasailing or jet ski. I did a jet ski tour with Megasports and it was amazing! The front desk is exceptionally beneficial and can organise day trips for you, there are lots of entertaining issues to do in Langkawi.





All guests of Casa del Mar appreciate a complimentary breakfast buffet, and needless to say, I did not miss breakfast a single time. I prefer healthier foods and worth hotels that offer you a
decent selection of fresh fruits for breakfast. There was an entire buffet with fresh fruits and a single of the kitchen employees would just reduce any fruits of my decision. Each morning I’d
had porridge with mangoes, papaya, water melon and pineapple. 


The buffet presents lots, from baked breads, salads, diverse cheeses, cereals, nuts and dried fruits, various types of spreads to freshly squeezed juices… If that is not adequate you
can get extra products from the menu. I largely ordered some fresh spring rolls on leading, which had been scrumptious. The coffee is genuinely fantastic and I was thrilled that they offered soy
milk as nicely.


Right here a pic of my usual breakfast, minus the croissant (that was for my videographer.)



The Breakfast | Hotel Review: Casa del Mar Langkawi - A Peaceful Retreat that makes you feel like Home

Aside from the flavorful breakfast buffet, I highly suggest attempting their restaurant La Sal exactly where you can get a taste of  Western Meals, Mediterranean Cuisine and nearby Asian
dishes. You ought to attempt the hummus with pita bread, it was a single of my favorites! I attempted a handful of of their homemade soups and they had been all incredible tasty.


The restaurant gets busy in the early evening when the pleased hour begins, so do not miss having an ice cold cocktail throughout sunset time. Around 7PM they set up tables on
the beach exactly where you can have a romantic dinner with your companion whilst admiring the sunset… It really is really a specific spot to appreciate a meal.



In spite of all the busy days, filled with filming and photo shoots, I nonetheless enjoyed each minute at Casa del Mar. It really is a single of these locations that feels much more like a house than a hotel – it really is the
men and women who operate there who make this resort distinctive. Absolutely everyone knows your name and is devoted to give you the best time ever. A specific thanks to the amazing employees who spoiled me in all
methods achievable. Practically nothing would difficulty them to make their guests pleased.


Langkawi is a single of my favored islands in Malaysia, it offers plenty of sights and adventurous activities for its guests, the island is just ideal for a relaxing time with your
buddy or companion. If you are dreaming of a peaceful beach getaway, have a appear at Casa del Mar, you might love it as much as I did. My time went by too
fast, and I can’t wait to go back. Next time I’ll stay longer, for sure.
