Langkawi Island is known for its many stunning luxurious beachfront resorts with sky-high prices to match, but there are also plenty of other accommodations available on the island at a small fraction of the price of those high-end resorts with similar facilities such beachfront villas, garden villas, infinity pools, privacy, and super insta-friendly places 😉

Here are 16 hotels in Langkawi that definitely won’t wreak havoc on your bank account for an awesome weekend getaway!

Prices are based on the searches for the travelling period of July 2019

1. Tanjung Puteri Motel

Tanjung Puteri Motel is not your 7-star luxury hotel. It’s a basic motel that is clean and comfortable with all the necessities that you need, which is a pretty good bargain at its price! The beauty of this motel is its location that is by a beautiful and deserted beach that stretches out to a good 4km of pristine white sand 😍

Chances are, you’ll hardly see more than 10 people at the beach at once so you’ll feel like you’re enjoying your vacation on a private beach instead. When you’re not out exploring the island and its many activities, you can lounge and relax on their provided sun lounges and hammocks by the beach and enjoy Langkawi’s beach and breeze 🌴

Staying at the Alia Residence at its price is a steal! Although it is not a beachfront hotel, it is nearby enough that you can hop into a taxi and make your way to one of Langkawi’s many sandy white beaches (it’s a pretty small island, after all). There are over 70 rooms available and they have all the necessaries you need.

On days when you feel like staying in, enjoy yourself by the pool or try their massage services to relax all those muscles for total and complete relaxation 😉

And FYI, the hotel is only 5 minutes away from the International Airport.
