Pantai Cenang, Langkawi, Malaysia
8.4 Very Good - based on 240 Agoda reviews
Why this hotel: Exclusive villas. Award winner. Gay-popular.
A luxury boutique resort comprised of just 8 beautifully restored antique “Malay Kampung” villas.
Each villa is individually decorated in Aseana style and feature all the modern 5-star facilities (air conditioning, TV & DVD, free WiFi). Five of the villas have a private sun deck with freestanding wooden bathtubs (the remaining three have indoor bathtubs).
The villas are set within the tranquil garden of a coconut plantation with a pool and jacuzzi that overlooks wetlands and mountain ranges. The beautiful Pantai Cenang beach is just five minutes away.
The onsite Nam restaurant offers a eclectic mix of ‘East meets West’ cuisine and an extensive wine list. The resort’s funky lounge bar, housed in an old Chinese timber ship house is a great place to relax with a drink.
Bon Ton has won critical acclaim from the likes of chef Raymond Blanc, Tatlers Travel Guide, Condé Nast Traveller and Time Magazine. But the real difference? Profits fund a local animal sanctuary run by the resort’s owners.
As gay-friendly as it gets and gay-popular!
