Best budget friendly hotels in Malaysia

The best affordable hotels in Langkawi are definitive standouts from the island's hordes of budget hotels, chalets, hostels, and dorms, each offering a winning combination of smart lodgings, great beachside views, ample dining options, and easy access to Langkawi’s must-visit locales. Langkawi is well-regarded as a shopper’s paradise, where visitors can purchase cigarettes, liquor, chocolate, alcohol, luggage, sports shoes, perfumes, and household items at duty-free prices. Meanwhile, Langkawi’s pristine beaches offer excellent diving opportunities and a wide range of water activities such as parasailing, jet-skiing, and island-hopping. Most of these inexpensive lodgings are situated along Kuah, Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah, which means that you’re never too far from Langkawi’s must-visit attractions such as Dataran Lang (Eagle Square) and Underwater World Langkawi.

Azio Hotel and Residences

Azio Hotel is another surprising find amongst Langkawi’s hotel offerings. Though it is a budget property it certainly does not look that way with fashionable style in the way of polished marble tile floors, whitewashed walls and modern furniture interior design-wise. Winner of a few awards, its along Jalan Pandak Mayah and you won’t find a great inventory of hotel recreational facilities here, although there is a van or bus service to several key Langkawi Island hotspots (ask the front desk for more particulars).Instead Azio Hotel sacrifices an outside swimming pool, gym and spa to keep the hotels price tag cheap making it the type of property that can unquestionably draw in a crowd.
