The perfect place for a weekend getaway from Singapore with its awesome beach bars, luxurious pool villas and mind-bogglingly cheap transport. Very chic, very commercialized, very pedestrian-unfriendly.
34 pool villas behind Seminyak’s Eat Street (Jl Kayu Aya). Good for those without their own wheels as there are tons of amenities and restaurants nearby, *IF* you don’t mind tramping through some back alleys. Staff are always friendly and smiling, and really went out of their way to accommodate our requests.
Only 8 villas in this boutique resort just off the main beach of Pantai Cenang. I typically favour boutique accommodation over glitzy mega-resorts, but this was a too rustic for me, especially in view of the not-so-rustic price. Or maybe I was just annoyed that I couldn’t get wifi access from my villa. Grr!
I came to Langkawi despite all the negative comments hoping that the masses could be wrong. Turns out they are right ! Langkawi is really super boring. Other than chillaxing in your expensive hotel, there is nothing much else to do.
Just 1 hour’s flight from Cebu in Philippines, Siargao Island is a surfing mecca blessed with world class waves. It is a great place to learn as you can get 1-to-1 instruction from USD11 per hour. Combine surf lessons with other activities such as island hopping and dune buggies for a super fun beach getaway! (Note: Rustic and off the beaten path, not for the Aspen crowd.)
