Langkawi ~ Pantai Kok & Burau Bay


An Introduction Getting There Legends Sights & Visits Beaches Islands

Stay-in Langkawi Travel-in Langkawi Langkawi Map

• Stay-in Pantai Kok / Burau Bay • Dining & Entertainment • Telaga Harbour •



On the western side of Pulau Langkawi (Langkawi Island), about twelve kilometres north of Pantai Cenang, lies Pantai Kok, a beautiful powdery sand bay fringed by limestone hills and forest. Quieter and more secluded than Pantai Cenang, the area makes an ideal romantic getaway or a tranquil honeymoon place.



Four new resorts, a new golf course and a replica of the Thai palace used in the film "Anna and the King" are among the other attractions.
If you're feeling energetic you can go jungle trekking or explore the local caves. Pantai Kok has a few bars and restaurants but it's mainly a place to simply relax in the natural beauty of the beach and bay.


Stay-in Pantai Kok / Burau Bay
Whipping on up the coast you’ll pass the Perdana Hotel, Langkasuka Beach Resort and the surprisingly upbeat Langkawi Lagoon Resort. Langkawi Lagoon is unimpressive on the outside but is a different story once you enter the lobby and cross over to the seaside. Here’s there’s lawns, a small pool, nice breezy views, and the extension “Sea Village” offering Malay-style stilted accommodation over water. There is a spa on site. The place does not score overly high for décor (which is mishmash) but it wins out with its low-key simplicity and inspirational touches. Not a bad spot for families.

Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort after going through a facelift has emerged lighter, breezier and far more contemporary. The lobby features full length windows offering a panoramic view of the sea. This is a 38 acre garden compound that runs up and down the verdant hillside with heady snatches of ocean view here and there. Electric buggy rides are the norm to transfer from room to lobby or elsewhere. There is the Chavana Spa (by Mandara) for spoiling rubs and a small beach area. Much of the seaside is rocky and, while scenic, swimming and wading is not your best bet. There’s mud and pebbles underfoot as the tide drains.

Getting into Burau Bay, the Mutiara Burau Bay has long been a good-value favourite. The place is unfussy and friendly. Simple cabanas run along the sides of a central garden that leads onto a wonderful Robinson Crusoe cove fringed by tall palms.

On the other side of the sweeping bay are the red-tile roofs of the
Berjaya Langkawi Beach & Spa Resort Water Suites.


The Berjaya gets better as you walk down from the lobby and approach the beach. There is a busy swimming pool with rock formations, a bar, and plenty of kids splashing about. The place is busy and involves a fair bit of walking up and down the hillside. The water suites, on stilts, are far preferable to the hillside chalets some which are a bit drab.


Dining & Entertainment
Exotic, exciting and vibrant is what you will feel at the Burau Beat Pub. Featuring hot music, the live band will entertain you till the wee hours of the morning. But if you are looking for something a little more laid back, hop over to Sunken Pool Bar and Beach Bar and simply sink into one of the sofas and relax. There is no loud music here--just the marvellous sounds of Mother Nature to soothe your soul.


Telaga Harbour
Fast-developing Telaga Harbour at Perdana Quay, Pantai Kok, is a mini Singapore Boat Quay look-alike with trendy eateries and bars like the USSR Restaurant and Cuba Libre. There are a few fashion boutiques sprinkled around as well to cater for tourists and the smart set moored along the boardwalk in gleaming yachts. Opposite the bay, Petronas Quay also offers snacks and alfresco dining.
