Temple Tree

Langkawi, Malaysia

Press Reviews


i-escape's Annual Guest Awards 2011
Winner: Beach & Island category.


Conde Nast Traveller (UK), November 2013
"If you are looking for more action, the holiday hotspot of Pantai Cenang has lots of bars and restaurants and a busy, family-friendly beach; nearby, but secluded enough for peace, Bon Ton Resort and its neighbour Temple Tree are made up of unique antique villas, set on the edge of a lagoon."

The Times
"Charming Bon Ton was our favourite hotel in Langkawi, but its new sister resort, Temple Tree, looks even better – antique, romantic kampung houses by a lagoon, with a cool pool."

  • “Charming, but in our opinion, not good value for money considering the location and the breakfast.”
    , Sweden (05.02.14)

  • “We felt that breakfast was very basic and did not represent good value for the room rate. We would have appreciated toiletries provided in the bathroom for our use. Despite the comments above, we had a fantastic stay.”

Save to favouritesPrintMailTemple TreeTemple Tree is a dream for architectural students; for the rest of us, a beautiful, unique haven. The concept? A collection of classic Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian houses from all over Malaysia, painstakingly reassembled, and divided into 20 [r:MY004:rooms and suites]. Owner Narelle is the brains behind neighbouring [h:MY001:Bon Ton Resort], and the execution of this living museum is spot-on. Each house maintains its own character and Narelle’s eye for interiors is evident in bold colour schemes, which effortlessly blend antique pieces with modern flourishes. It's a fascinating insight to traditional Malaysian living, with the bonus of excellent service. Communal life centres around the beautifully laid-out 90-year-old Straits Clubhouse with its [eating:MY004:restaurant], games room, library and bar. The houses are arranged down a ‘main street’ where saplings sway in the breeze, leading to the resort's swimming pool. Hit the beach for sunbathing or watersports; hire a car to set your own island agenda. Or stay put - the houses are so delightful, you might not want to leave.
