REVIEWSGUESTS: August 09/22/2016 “Great” We really loved are stay at Langkawi. The appartment we rented was clean, beautiful, peaceful and there was more than enough space for the 5 of us. The kids (15, 17 en 24) also had a great time and took a swim every day in the loverly pool. I really recommend staying in Chogm Villa, Langkawi.
August 09/19/2015 “Safe and relaxing place” We stayed here one month and really enjoyed ourselves. You are able to walk to town centre 15 mins, shopping malls in 20 mins. There are many restaurants in walking distance. Very comfortable and quiet room. Exactly as you see in the pictures. Excellent wi-fi connection and satelite TV. The complex is very safe and quiet. It's situated close to the ferry terminal, if you brave the ferry crossing! The large swimming pool is great and very clean. Robin was really helpful and nothing is too much. We definitely recommend staying here couples and families.
Februari 03/01/2015 “Simply fantastic!” Since finding this tropical paradise by chance five Years ago, we have returned every Year since to escape the British winter. The apartments Are lovely and offers you everything you need. Your hosts could not be better as they make you feel so at home and cannot do enough for you (if you need anything). We are going back again later this year and will continue to go back (something I swore I would never do) because we love it so much. We have over the years met many others who return again and again which speaks for itself. The people of Langkawi are so friendly and the food choice is amazing. Give yourselves a treat! Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014 “Outstanding service and local insights!” I stayed here with my wife and 2 kids(12 & 9) so that we had facilities to cook and more room than in a hotel room. Robin picked us up from the airport and looked after us very well for everything we needed. The local knowledge was very helpful for booking day drips, activities and shopping. The facilities and rooms are very good, clean and lots of room for the family. The pool is a fantastic pool which we almost had exclusive access to as not many if the residents use it! I travelled here to race in the ironman and this accomodation was perfect for me to relax and prepare for the event. It is not as busy with tourists which we loved, so you can really integrate into the local community and get a great experience rather than just at a hotel with all of the tourists. We had a great time and the whole family had an experience of a lifetime, I would recommend this accomodation for anyone travelling with your family. It is probably not for a young honeymoon couple who want to lay around a resort together but for mostly everyone else it is great. more
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014 “Lovely location” Loved this rental. Great location. Clean and modern apartment, overlooking pool. All facilities you would need. Robin was extremely helpful and very nice to have a friendly face to help out when you arrive at the airport. Pool is clean and large. Well managed and secure complex.more
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014 "The most relaxing experience"” I would like to firstly thank Robin our host. Very helpful and resourceful which made our stay even more enjoyable and thank you for the wonderful lunch! The apartment is well appointed and all you could need, "a home a way from home". A short 2 steps..., an amazing pool at your front door. Close to supermarkets and malls and great food. Hire a car to see the sites all a short drive away and well worth it! If you want to blend in like a local, slow down and watch the world go by.. this is for you! Enjoy and RELAX....!!more
Reviewed June 10, 2014 for a stay in May 2014 “Lovely hosts and amazing pool!” We spent 10/11 nights here as a couple and were offered to upgrade to the apartment as it was available. For this length of stay it was definitely better to have the extra space and full kitchen. Ann and Rob were fantastic hosts, picking us up from our first accommodation nearby and then dropping us to the other side of the island at the end of our stay. They took us to lunch and showed us where to do some shopping which was very helpful. I would recommend having either a car or bike to get around as the location is not too close to the beaches or main shops/restaurants. The highlight was definitely the pool, which we had pretty much to ourselves most of the time! We were very happy with our stay here and would recommend this to other travellers.more
Reviewed April 20, 2014 for a stay in April 2014 “Perfect hosts Rob and Ann” Rob and Ann were waiting for us at the airport. An awesome couple. They took us to our unit via the local shops. We bought beautiful fresh bread from their favourite bakery and I managed to get some medication for my injured back. We went to the local Billions supermarket for essential supplies and refreshments (tax free booze!) After that Rob and Ann showed us to our (up-graded) apartment. Unit 2007 is spotlessly clean and a very fresh and modern 3 bdrm unit with em suite in the master room and a second shower/toilet. Filtered water from the kitchen tap. Rob and Ann were always nearby if we needed them but also very mindful of our privacy. Perfect hosts. Thank you Rob and Ann for a wonderful stay and many nice memories.more
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014 “Excellent Langkawi Apartment Accommodation” Booking the apartment was easy and Rob helped all along. Rob and Ann picked us up from the airport and gave an interesting commentary along the way to the apartment where we were shown the facilities and had the house rules explained. Ann then took us to the local supermarket where we bought our groceries for our stay. Lovely people. the apartment was clean, everything worked and very well equipped. Beds were comfortable though the pillows were quite lumpy. The apartment is situated in a large block with a great pool. about a 10-15 minute walk into Kuah town. I recommend that you hire a car or scooter to get around with. Ann or Rob will help with this if required. As we were there for New Years eve Rob and Ann invited us to a great dinner party at nearby Pantai Chenang beach. Wonderful hosts! Food in Kuah / Langkawi is delicious. Do be brave and try the local restaurants, you will not be disappointed. Pia's Paddy is one of the best and not to be missed, though a little hard to find. get a taxi and its no hassle. taxis are relatively inexpensive. DO NOT BY DUTY FREE ALCOHOL BEFORE ARRIVING. the whole place is a duty free zone and liquor is amazingly cheaper than airport duty free in Singapore. When at the airport if you want to eat or drink before the flight stay outside the immigration area as facilities within are limited and the Priority Club inside is a sad joke with no alcohol and bad/limited food. Thank you Rob and Ann for a wonderful apartment and helping us to have a dream holiday.more
Reviewed 29 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013“Nice Apartment - Would've Been Helpful to Have a Car” We stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment. It was very nice -- clean, well maintained and tastefully decorated. We especially appreciated Rob and Ann's hospitality. They had arranged for a car and driver to meet us to pick us up at the airport and then again to drop us off on departure day. They also came by to greet us when we arrived at the apartment. Robin, who helped checked us in, was very friendly and efficient. We appreciated that he shared with us some of the local favorite places to eat and visit. He also helped us booked a couple of the activities we wanted to do.
We only have one complaint about the place. Although there was WIFI available, the connection was slow and not predictable most of the time. This proved to be a little frustrating for research on places to go and eat. We ended up going to Papparichi, a restaurant, when we needed quick internet connection.
The apartment is located in a residential complex, Chogm Villa, and is quite quiet, which is great for a relaxing vacation. The pool is very nice and very well maintained, we enjoyed it very much. However, the location of the apartment relative to various food and shopping places can feel a bit isolated if you don't have a car. Distance to the jetty area is about 2.5 km (~35 min walk) and to Kuah Town Center is about 1.6 km (~20 min). We had chosen not to rent a car, so we walked to most places where we can and used taxis for places further out. This may not be ideal for families with young children in prams unless you have access to a car. Also, it may be helpful to know that there are no washing machines on the premises.
That said, overall we enjoyed our stay at Chogm Villa. We appreciated Rob and Ann's personal touch and their taking the time to greet us upon arrival and to say good bye when it was time to leave. more
Reviewed October 23, 2013 ShueshueUpmarket vacation rental in non-touristy part of Langkawi. We loved our stay in this apartment. It was squeaky clean (great when you have kids with allergies like we do) and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was fully equipped, there was wifi and satellite TV. The balcony overlooked the swimming pool (with kiddy pool) and the coconut palms where hornbills would come in the morning and evening. The showers are large and the water pressure excellent (not something you will find everywhere in Asia). Robin was lovely and met us at the airport. He gave us some tips for restaurants in Kuah. Most of the restaurants are chinese/ malay style seafood such as prawns, crab, lobster (but they also do chicken and beef) and the food is super fresh. There is also a yacht club that does western fare. We rented a car and drove to all the attractions on the small island. We loved the fact that the place was away from the backpacking/ tourist area but close enough to the tourist sights to not feel isolated. Our only regret was not having booked the apartment for 2 weeks in stead of one!
June 19, 2013 Renee,Mick & boys "Perfection" This unit is amazing! It's perfect for a family, with an excellent spacious layout and fabulous amenities! The pool & grounds are immaculate and it has all the comforts of home. We travelled with our two sons aged 3 years and 8 months and found it just perfect. We were supplied with a cot, high chair, baby bath and booster seat all FOC. Rob and anne met us at the airport and were helpful in every way. Complimentary airport transfers, refreshments on arrival, they took us to the supermarket for supplies and organised a hire car with baby seat. We could not fault the service. Overall this is an excellent place to stay if you're looking for accommodation in Kuah & Rob and anne are delightful to deal with. Apartment is to western standard, clean and homely - perfection!!

The pool was great - warm, very clean and plenty big enough for a good swim around - with the added bonus of being straight outside our door! Rob, Ann and Robin were wonderful hosts - nothing was a problem and we had a fantastic day out with them on a Stardust boat trip.

Fabulous holiday - our only complaint was it's too far from New Zealand!....... MORE
Got to rave about this place, its location, managers and the pool Left on 05/22/2011 for a stay in May 2011 The photos online were almost as good as the real thing! This apartment is absolutely beautiful with a s/c studio plus 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and the biggest pool I have ever seen! Everything you need is here, plus just a 5 or 10 minute walk to shops and the supermarket is just 8MYR (think $2.50 aUD) in a taxi to return with shopping. We lived with the locals, instead of being in a resort with tourists. So much more authentic, but still 5 star. We dined like kings at local restaurants for a pittance and had lots of places to explore. Rob and Robin were amazing! I did lots of research before leaving home and they were so patient with my 40 or so emails! Robin made some recommendations to us to help us have a great time and everything we did was so enjoyable. Our group consisted of 3 couples and there was plenty of space to have privacy, but also to have fun together. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment and Langkawi for a fun holiday, and you can plan as much or as little as you like. Such good value, and I will be looking for this style of accommodation in other locations, to get away from the tourist traps. Thank you Rob and Robin and Trip advisor, because that's where I found you!

We've been stayin there second time. Firts time was a year ago, just by chance. Then weve dicided to come back, for NY holidays this year. The place is absolutely like on the pictures you can see on website. You may rent 1 bedroom studio (we've rented firts time), or 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms appartment (we've rented second time with our friends), or all together. Appartments are located 10 min. to walk from Kuah town, in a kondominimum (named Chogm Villa) with large clean pool and 24 hour security. Nice place. Of cause, this is isolated place, not right on a beach, but rented car or taxi are cheap. And you're free to go every day to new beach all over Langkawi. You're far away from touristic places, relaxing, with nice birds and a lot of monkeys all around of Chogm Villa. Our special thanks to the owners, Rob and his wonderful wife, and Robin. They really take care about you. All locat tips will be at your desposual. Specially recommend: if you are invited to Stardust boat cruise, go! Owners normally arrange this fo all there guests. Go!
All the comfort of a hotel with the freedom of one's own home Chogm Villas are spacious, comfortable apartments set in beautiful grounds with a fabulous swimming pool. Chogm Villas are close to local amenities and we had opportunity, at least to some extent, to get to know Langkawi from the local residents' point of view. Although we could have eaten in, mostly we ate out at night at the very cheap local restaurants. Our agent/host, Robin Gent was very knowledgeable about local activities and amenities and drove us to and from the airport. Nothing was too much trouble. Price was good.

Our stay was almost perfect. The Chogm Villa is a real nice complex. The swimming pool is huge and very quiet. Not many people use the pool so many times it is all yours. Our appartment (6003) could have been a marriot or Hilton accomodation. It is really nice decorated, very clean and you feel right at home. Every dorm has a seperate bathroom, very convenient. A really big kitchen, only thing missing is a fruitpress to make your own orange juice, but on the whole it is fully equiped! We also made use of the gym and the internet connection and dvd-player. All very pleasant to have available. Rob and Robin are very good hosts. They will make you feel right at home. They are always nearby if you need them for any help or tips. We were very happy that we had the pleasure to stay here and can recommandend it to anyone, specially people with childeren. Car rental is advised since there is much to see on the island!

We rented the 2 bedroom apartment at Chogm Villa and it exceeded our expectations in all aspects. The apartment is very spacious, the kitchen well equipped, the whole apartment very beautifully decorated - just perfect! Everything is very child friendly (we had our then 10 months old baby with us). Rob and Ann provided a cot, a baby chair and many many toys for the pool and beach. We enjoyed the big, clean pool which was never crowded and drove to the beach (about 20 minutes drive) every day. Ann and Rob were very helpful and gave us many good tips of where to shop, what to see etc. They also recommended a baby sitter to us, Nathalie, who took care of our daughter two evenings so we could have a romantic night out without worrying :-). We truly had the best family vacation ever and we can absolutely recommend the Chogm Villa for families but also for people without childrem.

Review Submitted: January 19, 2011 Date of Stay: January 2011 Langkawi was an ideal solution for a reunion between friends (from the 70's) who now live in Brisbane, Perth and myself here in Holland. As well as a great location we also had top accomadion at "Chogm Villa". All rooms had own shower and toilet and we nearly had the pool only for ourselves! We were close to restaurants (great food and prices!!) and plenty of interesting places to shop. The day trips we made: snorkling, jet skiing and a boat trip with Captain Dean were memorable trips. Our stay was made complete by the helpfulness of our hosts Rob and Robin. Highly recommended!

To be met at the airport is always a nice way to start your holiday and both Robin and Rob were so helpful when in came to things to do and places to go. Our highlight (4 adults) was our Xmas day boat Cruise, a great day and so relaxing. Renting a car was a must for us but this was made very easy with the help of Rob. Even though it was Xmas the pool was never too busy and the food and drink on the island were amazing. Once again thank you for a wonderful experience.

Just returned from our first trip to lankawi. Stayed at CHOGM Apartments. Our organisers collected us from the airport gave helpful suggestions on trips and tours and made sure we received first class service wherever we travelled or dined. Accomodation was excellent, overlooking a huge pool and close to downtown and markets.Great if you enjoy apartment style accomodation with plenty of privacy. Highlights were the variety of dining opportunities and the added benefit of being on a tax free island.

My family and I (including our 1 year old baby) stayed for 10 nights at Chogm Villa in Langkawi this November and found it absolutely perfect. Rob and Robin went out of their way to help us and made our stay very relaxing and comfortable. Robin was always available to assist us with any request that we had from hiring a car to purchasing a local telephone SIM card. We stayed in Unit 6003 which has been recently renovated and was very well equipped. From our balcony we enjoyed the fabulous views of the mountains and the complex pool and garden. Upon our arrival, Robin handed us an information pack that included maps and other tourist information about the island which was valuable in helping us explore this beautiful island. Our trip was an absolute pleasure and we recommend Chogm villas for anyone looking to spend their next holiday on the lovely island of Langkawi.

Sophie_10...Hong Kong, China “So relaxing...” Reviewed May 31, 2010, Stayed May 2010, traveled soloAustralia...
I stayed at the end of May in one of the studio serviced apartments without a TV and with view of the pool. Chogm Villa is really conducive to relaxation and attracts a community of nice people (and I really didn't want to watch TV!). The flat was recently renovated to western standards, fresh and bright. I loved to step outside on the terrace in the morning to smell the garden. A monkey came for a stroll around the pool during my stay. A reminder that the jungle is nearby. The free wi-fi connection was very useful. On Robin's (host) recommendation I did a Mangrove tour with Dev's Adventures which he organized for me on the spot. I was picked up at the door by a taxi the next morning. The logistics was very easy and I had a good time. Robin was a great source of information and was always available to help. I chose not to hire a car and Robin dropped me off at the airport in 20 minutes, no traffic. This was a nice touch. I found overall the experience of staying there very enjoyable.

We stayed as a family of 14 people ranging in age from 14 - 70 years in three of the apartments which were all superbly appointed. The facilities made us feel at home right from the start. We had everything we needed in the apartments and it was great to be close by to each other. Our hosts, Rob and Robin were a lot of fun, a great resource for local knowledge and for the best places to eat in town and we really enjoyed when they were able to join our family for dinner. CHOGM Villa has a wonderful pool area for relaxing. We were close to town and the shopping centres which made self-catering very easy though we usually dined out at night. A great experience is to attend a local night market, and indulge in some of the local cuisine as it's cooked right there in front of you.

Review Submitted: May 19, 2010 Date of Stay: May 2010 I stayed with my daughter (23), her fiance and a friend for six days in a first floor two bedroom apartment - just on the edge of the pool area. The stay was excellent from beginning to end. Before arrival the manager, Robin, contacted us by text message and phone, and arranged our pick up at the airport. The house keeper, Kate, setttled us in, and even arranged a hired car to be delivered within 15 minutes of our arrival ... and took care of all the paper work too. It also should be mentioned at a very resonably price. We had a wonderfull stay in the bright, pleasant apartment, equipped with all we needed for some relaxing days. In our booking we expressed a wish for an apartment "as near to the pool as possible". And indeed the pool was on the doorstep. Only a few yards across the road, and we were in the large, clean pool. Upon our departure Robin also arranged our transportation - and even to care of the parking ticket we got the day before our departure. I would most certainly recommend you to stay an take advantage of the facilities, the extreem good service, and the quite location - not far from the city.

Review Submitted: March 25, 2010 Date of Stay: February 2010 What a perfect place for a holiday in Langkawi! We stayed in the apartment for six weeks and enjoyed every day. Since we are a family traveling with our one year old daughter, we wanted to find a place where we can have lots of space and a quite surrounding. The apartment is spotless and the pool is outstanding, very clean and huge! Every morning my husband took our daughter for a swim, while I could enjoy a sleep-in morning. There is something special about this place - you are on a holiday, but you feel like at home. You get to know your neighbors and everyone greets you with a smile. Rob and Robin can even arrange a babysitter for you, which turns your family holiday into a romantic holiday. We were very pleased with our kind babysitter who was taking care of our daughter a few times per week. It felt safe to leave our daughter at home (yes, that's what we used to call this place) because even though we were out having a great time, our kind hosts and neighbors were checking up on our daughter. If you need help fixing something like gas to your stove, rent a car, get some DVD's or whatever it might be, Rob and Robin always take care of it right away. Our stay in Chogm Villa was everything we'd hoped for and more! Highly recommended, we hope we'll get the pleasure of staying there again.

Rating 5 out of 5 Een absolute MUST!!!! McBen % Naomi Nieuw-Beijerland, Holland
Review Submitted: January 10, 2010 Date of Stay: November 2009 Dit was mijn allereerste trip naar Langkawi en uberhaupt naar Azie. Ik ben verkocht!! Wat een superervaring was dit. Ik was er samen met mijn dochter in de laatste week van november, het begin van het hoogseizoen. Veel leuke dingen te doen. Een tocht met de Stardust vergeet je nooit meer. Maar ook snorkelen op Pulau Payar is een aanrader. In één zin: "Waar voor je euro's" Ik zeg: GEWOON DOEN!!!

Review Submitted: September 23, 2009 Date of Stay: February 2009 Langkawi is a wonderful island; nature, beach, culture and adventereous. The island has many different cultures and superb food. The Villa is luxureous and has comfortable appartments. On top it has a brillant swimming pool, sauna, fitness etc. The location is perfect to discover the island and the main city is in walking distance. If you are reluctant to be in the big resorts but want to discover the island and it's city, the cultures and its habits, without doing concesions to luxury, it's the perfect place to be!!. Rob en Robin are passionate hosts, they make you feel during your stay welcome and if you want they will organise day tours or golf trips with a smile (indeed!!). Langkawi is a very good destination for golfing addicts, there are three excellent courses. I'll be back!!!.

Review Submitted: August 3, 2009 Date of Stay: April 2009 Ben nu inmiddels al meer dan 10 jaar een vaste bezoeker van Maleisië en elk jaar weet Rob mij te verrassen. Zo was het ook vorig jaar oktober en dit april, dat ik in van de appartementen mocht verblijven. Het was een geweldige ervaring om een zo'n mooi, van alle gemakken voorzien, appartement te mogen bewonen voor 8 dagen. Luxe alom en een service die je zelfs bijna niet in een 6 sterren hotel krijgt. Langkawi blijft een bijzondere plaats innemen en dat zal ook altijd blijven zolang als mijn vriend Rob daar blijft wonen. Je gastheerschap is fenomenaal en jouw gezelschap is niet te vervangen. Rob bedankt voor alles. Ik weet niet of ik je ooit kan terugbetalen. Love U. Groet, Tom. Recommended for: Age 55+, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers Owner's Response: Vriend , bedankt voor die mooie woorden. jij was er bij vanaf die eerste begin jaren en zonder jou was dit nooit zo'n succes geworden. Maleisië is en blijft voor ons bijzonder en verrassend.

Langkawi, zeker voor herhaling vatbaar! Cindy en Kostas Amsterdam
Review Submitted: April 3, 2009 Date of Stay: February 2009 Wij hebben in februari een heerlijke week doorgebracht op Langkawi. Het eiland heeft zeker indruk op ons gemaakt, wat een tropisch paradijs zeg! En zo gemakkelijk te bereiken vanaf Kuala Lumpur.
Ik zou iedereen een verblijf in de Chogm Villa's aanraden. Wij zaten in het 2-persoonsappartement op de begane grond met een leuk zitje buiten met uitzicht op het gigantische zwembad. Het appartement is modern en luxe ingericht en van alle gemakken voorzien. Wij hebben met moeite afscheid genomen van de rainshower douche.
De boottocht met Rob en Robin is zeker iets wat je moet doen tijdens je verblijf op Langkawi, wat een onvergetelijke dag! De hele dag zeilen op zee en door de mangrove en dan lekker afkoelen in het net naast de boot.
Eigenlijk willen wij gewoon weer terug!

Rating 5 out of 5 absolute aanrader mr. ed steyl, nederland
Review Submitted: February 24, 2009 Date of Stay: February 2009 Het appartement is goed opgezet , schoon en uitstekend ingericht en onderhouden.Elke twee-persoonskamer heeft een eigen badkamer.Er is een goed ingerichte keuken en een ruime van alle gemakken voorziene zitkamer.
Een fantastisch 45 meter zwembad op 10 meter afstand.
Locatie ligt goed t.o.v. centrum Kuah, winkelcentra en vele restaurants.De locale restaurants in Kuah leveren een goede kwaliteit voedsel voor weinig geld.Ook de meer westerse restaurants zijn prima en niet overdreven geprijsd.
Alle stranden zijn met de auto binnen een half uur te bereiken.De stranden zijn zeer gevarieerd van zeer rustig tot gezellig druk; nooit overvol. Wegen zijn prima en er wordt rustig gereden.
Rob is zeer betrokken bij het wel en wee van zijn gasten, en verleent een persoonlijke op de wensen van zijn gasten afgestemde service.
De appartementen zijn een aanrader voor iedereen die( itt in een hotel), graag wat mee krijgt van de cultuur en het dagelijkse leven op Langkawi. Recommended for: Age 55+, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Young Children

Wij zijn van 4 tot 11 februari in Chogm vila resort geweest. Een geweldig mooie studio en een zwembad van wel 50 meter. Ook kun je gebruik maken van een sauna of stoombad. Rob Harting is een gastheer van formaat. Hij regelt alles voor je, als je dat wilt.Je kunt er leuke boottochtjes maken met duiken en snorkelen. En het eten is er ook heel erg lekker. Het is voor ons voor herhaling vatbaar.Lekker genieten van zon, zee en strand.

Review Submitted: November 19, 2008 Date of Stay: November 2008 Facilities were great as well as location and layout for all accomodations. The description in the brochure was accurate. It was clean, provided with very good customer service and all activities were very well organized. We were very impressed by the "personal touch" of our guide as well as by his acquaintance with Malaysia its habits and its inhabitants. This for example was shown in the excellent choise of the restaurants. We loved all of them and prices were very low. A true recommendation for my friends and those who are planning to visit Malaysia.

Review Submitted: November 19, 2008 Date of Stay: November 2008 We had a perfect holiday. Every accomodation was perfect after a well planned flight from Amsterdam to Maleisia, domestic flights and a warm reception at Malaysia airport. All tours we participated in were very well organized and exceeded our expectations. We were very impressed by the "personal touch" of our hosts. This as well as their unprecedentedly knowledge of Malaysia, its customs and its inhabitants must be to their advantage on other tour operators.

Rating 5 out of 5 a SUPER place to stay Ann & Rob Leende, Netherlands
Review Submitted: October 14, 2008 Date of Stay: March 2008 I have already been to these apartments several times. It's a super place to stay. With the center of Kuah nearby, where you find numerous places where you can have superb meal, it gives you all the peace and rest you need to relax. The apartments are well kept and the service is just what you need, when you need something, you can just ask for it. There are a lot of things you can do on Langkawi (as you can see in the advert) and Chogm Villa is the perfect base. I would recommend everybody that is looking for the perfect holiday to book one of these apartments. Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Sightseeing, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway Owner's Response: Dear Ann, Thanks for putting your good holiday experience langkawi in our apartments. I know we will see you again. Big hug and kiss from Langkawi, Kind regards Rob Did you find this review helpful? Yes No Helpful votes: 4/4

Review Submitted: January 19, 2011 Date of Stay: January 2011 Langkawi was an ideal solution for a reunion between friends (from the 70's) who now live in Brisbane, Perth and myself here in Holland. As well as a great location we also had top accomadion at "Chogm Villa". All rooms had own shower and toilet and we nearly had the pool only for ourselves! We were close to restaurants (great food and prices!!) and plenty of interesting places to shop. The day trips we made: snorkling, jet skiing and a boat trip with Captain Dean were memorable trips. Our stay was made complete by the helpfulness of our hosts Rob and Robin. Highly recommended! Recommended for: Adventure Seekers
Rating 5 out of 5 Großartig! Mo-the-Mojo Berlin-Deutschland
Review Submitted: March 2, 2009 Date of Stay: February 2009 Wunderschönes Appartment, großer Pool und direkt in der lieblichen Stadt Kuah gelegen. Besonders wohl fühlten wir uns, da viele Einheimische in den anderen Appartments wohnten. So bekommt man ein Gefühl für das Land und die Menschen, was in einem Hotel nicht so leicht möglich wäre. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten zur Selbstverpflegung gibt es einige in der Nähe, allerdings haben wir dort nur gefrühstückt. Die Restaurants in Kuah, sowie in fast in ganz Malaysia, entsprechen vom Äußeren meist nicht den Erwartungen von Europäern. Jedoch täuscht hier der Augenschein! Das Essen ist fantastisch, super lecker. Essen ist hier tief in der Kultur verankert und sollte umgeben von Einheimischen unbedingt ausprobiert werden. Der Vermieter hat zudem gute Tipps für die besten Lokalitäten. Rob ist sowieso ein guter Reisebegleiter, er ist für Fragen immer offen und sehr herzlich. Vielen Dank für alles!

Review Submitted: December 8, 2008 Date of Stay: November 2008 Wat een genot om nu eens niet in het toeristische gedeelte van Langkawi te zitten! Goede ontvangst en informatie ter plekke! Lekker met zonsopgang op en genieten van het regenwoud dat ontwaakt. Alles was super schoon en op vragen kregen we direct antwoord. Wat een groot en rustig zwembad! Ga op zeker een dagje snorkelen....helemaal top! Ga de berg op met de kabelbaan, lunch bij de japanner beneden in de Oriental Village en beklim daarna nog de Seven Wells daar om de hoek! Vergeet niet je zwemgoed, handdoek en water mee te nemen. Eindig de (iedere) dag lekker bij Starbucks aan haven. Huur een auto en verken het eiland. Shop ook bij Black Sand Beach en lunch bij de Datai Golfcourse. Wij gaan op zeker terug!! Mac and Peter Recommended for: Sightseeing
