There are a few room options for you to pick from. You can choose between staying in the beautiful garden view room, waking up to the luxury pool view, or in the lush greenery.

It’s so hidden, you may find it a hard time navigating to this private oasis via Waze. It’s recommended to use Google Maps instead.
2. Enjoy dinner at one of the prettiest sunset places in Langkawi
Get away from the crowd, save your precious energy fighting for a good-enough view in Pantai Cenang. At the top of Ambong Pool Villa is where you go for the Rimba Sunset Dinner. Surrounded by small islands and silky waters of the Andaman Sea, no wonder it’s one of the most beautiful places to watch the sunset in Langkawi.
Besides having a breathtaking scenic view, they also serve extremely valuable 3-course meal with a starter, main course, and desserts. We heard that the menu is as fresh as the scenery.
3. Dine and drink by the beach in a chic white and turquoise building
Located right beside the water sports in Pantai Tengah, Hidden Restaurant and Bar is where you go for a chill drink and meal.
Whether it’s the time for lunch, dinner, or cocktails, you can have it right by the beach while experiencing the unquestionably stunning sunset views and the sea breeze which never felt any closer. The tacos and pizzas are to die for!
4. Hike up to the 2nd highest mountain in Langkawi and swim in natural pools
The Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls also known as the Seven Wells Waterfall is deemed one of the nicest spots to chill and unwind in Langkawi. How it got its name is from the water streams that flow down forming seven pools at different levels.
It is at the foot bottom of Gunung Mat Cincang. There are about 367 steps to climb before dipping yourself in the cool waters.
What’s really cool about this place is that there are several slippery rocks that act as slides for people to slide through these dipping pools.
