Bon Ton Resort Langkawi is one of the island’s most stylish, unique and intimate resorts, with eight antique Malay villas. Nam Restaurant at Bon Ton is also regarded as one of the best on the island. Everything here is perfectly timed. Rick Stein is a noisy fan of the prawn and pineapple curries. There’s no beach, but who needs one when views across the lagoon encompass egrets, herons and the odd sea-eagle, the peak of Mount Mat Cincang on the horizon and the most perfect sunset you’ll ever see.
8 Unique antique villas starting at approx USD $250 per night for a 2 person villa.

"This resort was so relaxing! No TV, no party animals, just some friendly little kitties to make the place feel like being in someone's home. The lack of beach was not an issue for us as the gorgeous tropical surrounds of the hotel and pool were much more pleasant than a crowded tourist beach. We were upgraded to "Silk" but any of the cottages would have delighted us. We particularly liked the open air bathroom. We had our own "resident" cat but others also visited. All the cats were well behaved and would pose no problem for those who were indifferent to cats. The resort had a reasonable DVD library and a book library and the restaurant provided a good choice of food.(It was there that we discovered heavenly Gula Malacca icecream!) To see the island and visit the waterfalls and some of the better beaches, a car is essential. Tip- arrange car hire through the resort. Prices were better than elsewhere and cars were delivered for no extra." TrainLovers2, Perth, Australia
"Extraordinary attention to detail, knock out cuisine; perfectly restored historical buildings, filled with appropriate but also indulgent and comfortable antique furniture; great service and friendly cats wondering about: what more could you want? The kind of boutique experience still very rare in Malaysia but which the discerning traveller who rather have a customized experience with a handful of like-minded travelers; than a cookie cutter 5-star resort with 1000s of rooms - increasingly demands.
Our only - unresolvable - quibble: is that it would be perfect if it was on or even just near the beach. Langkawi has great beaches and water sports, and it was frustrating having to cab or drive every time we wanted to get to one. We'd recommend splitting a Langkawi visit between Bon Ton and one of the beach resorts." ARVD, London, UK
