Pantai Tengah or Tengah Beach is about 500 metres south of Pantai Cenang is a
great place if you're looking for somewhere to simply chill out.
Accommodation consists of low key chalets with more upscale resorts recently
built. Not ideal swimming conditions due to its position on the bay, but
picturesque and quiet.
Stay-in Pantai Tengah
he Lanai beach Resort around the corner at Pantai Tengah does front the
sand. Unlike its neighbours, it is small and unpretentious.
For simple lodgings, the place is okay
The Mediterranean-inspired Awana Porto Malai Langkawi is at the very
southern tip facing a marina. This is a three-star resort, clean, with
decent service. Deluxe Rooms feature a tiny separate toilet and small
separate shower (on different sides of the bedroom) and a washbasin smack
next to the bed. It’s a curious arrangement. There is a hair-drier and a
standing cupboard. An empty fridge is provided. This is strictly BYO so
stock up on your own. No beach.
The Holiday Villa is a typical mid-range holiday place with enough
to keep kids happy, a large pool. Not far from here is the larger
Resort Langkawi, a strawberry pink, colonnaded place that works hard to
appear Mediterranean. It is not on the beach (though close enough to walk
down) and offers instead a 154m pool claimed to be the longest in Malaysia.
There’s a rockery, waterfall, a wave pool and even a lazy river ride for the
Dining & Entertainment
A growing diversity of cuisines can be found along Pantai Tengah - a place
famous for its first class accommodation and excellent restaurants.
The beachfront Coco Beach Seafood Paradise has a romantic tropical ambience,
especially at sunset. Graceful, traditional Malay dance and music can be
enjoyed here occasionally. The Safari Restaurant & Bar has been designed
with mostly natural materials. Live bands will entertain you or you can try
something different by learning how to make batik at their Safari Batik
Gallery. Overlooking the marina, Boardwalk Café never fails to pull in the
crowd. Not only does it offer breathtaking views, but also an eclectically
influenced cuisine with a Mediterranean slant.
Cactus Restaurant & Bar offers great music and traditional Asian flavours
against a backdrop of impressive furniture, hand made from mangrove trunks.
For a more homely feel, the friendly owners of Sheela’s Restaurant & Café
will make you welcome. There is a splendid landscape garden and alfresco
dining here is highly recommended. The dish to try?
The famous home-made pizza cannot be beaten.
Palo Palo, the friendly beach bar, is a must for sunset lovers.
Breathtaking views are right at the doorstep. It only serves drinks but you
can have a barbecue and bonfire on request.
If you are looking for something a little different, Urwald Café is tucked
away in the woods and is a really cool hangout on lazy evenings. Offering an
enormous menu with something for everyone, splendid live music and
occasional cultural shows, there is never a dull moment here. Mario’s is
recommended for Italian cuisine. Artistry, top class hospitality and
outstanding food make a remarkable combination.
As soon as the sun sets, Sunset Karaoke & Discotheque comes alive.
This nightspot features a spacious dance floor, karaoke boxes for shy
singers and great music. If you are looking for a wilder evening Coco Jam
Fun Pub will keep you swaying to the infectious live tunes. Considered to be
the best entertainment spot on the island, this place is packed every night
with regulars and visitors. With its beachside location, one can go for
romantic walks in the moonlight for a breather.
Another choice would be the Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant with nice open
views in the far south at Pantai Tengah, and Japanese Restaurant and beach
bar in the same vicinity
Dining at sea does not mean you have to be on an ocean liner.
The floating restaurant, Kelong Seri Melayu, will give you a dining
you will never forget. Black Henry Discotheque gives you the opportunity to
kick off your shoes and dance the night away.
