Family friendly travelling in Langkawi

Most popular areas in Langkawi for family-friendly hotels

The tropical, sun-struck island of Langkawi – based in the aquamarine Andaman ocean, off the west coast of Malaysia – boasts a wealth of family-friendly hotels. The area around the airport is a prime place to stay for travel convenience. Slightly south of here, the Pantai Tengah area offers a seemingly endless stretch of well-developed, palm-fronted beach. The main town of Kuah, on the southern coast, also offers a spread of family-oriented accommodation – perfect for families seeking a buzzing urban atmosphere.

Top family-friendly hotels in Langkawi

The Danna Langkawi is a stately whitewashed hotel rich with family-friendly amenities, like a free children’s club and a pristine private beach. The Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort Langkawi is another top family-friendly hotel, where airy ensuite rooms come with free cribs/infant beds and childcare services. There’s also a children’s pool and play area onsite. The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa celebrates an optional additional kid’s club and childcare facilities – allowing you to sneak off and enjoy the full-service spa.

Where to find the best restaurants in Langkawi

There’s a bounty of casual family-focused restaurants in the Pantai Cenang area, around the airport. These relaxed eateries serve a range of culinary delights – from comforting western dishes to traditional Malay seafood, spiced with ginger and lemongrass. The popular Pantai Tengah beach area also offers a wide array of family-friendly diners, serving western and Malay food – including Italian pizza and pasta dishes. If the teens get hungry on the beach, treat them to some traditional Malay street food from one of the many vendors.

The most popular things to do in Langkawi

With the array of fun family-friendly attractions in Langkawi, the kids won’t have time to get bored. Children of all ages will go wild for the Langkawi cable car – also known as the SkyCab – a seriously steep cable car of glass-bottomed carriages that cruises to the summit of the Gunung Machinchang mountain. At the top, discover the Sky Bridge, a curved bridge that boomerangs over jungle-clad mountain peaks, offering vivid views of the river-cut canyons below. The SkyCab starts at the Oriental Village, a themed shopping and entertainment complex. Here, you can shop for traditional Malay trinkets, while the kids feed fish in the lily-studded ponds or play on the zip-line. Inside the Oriental Village, visit Art In Paradise, a museum of optical-illusion 3D paintings and murals.

Best ways to get around Langkawi

As Langkawi doesn’t provide much public transportation, when you’re traveling with the kids, it’s easiest to book your own family-sized car. This way, you’ll have total freedom to explore, and can head off on an island adventure at the drop of a hat. The airport offers shuttle services to many of the main hotels, and the hotels themselves often provide their own shuttles. The upper-end family-friendly hotels offer private limo/town car services.
