About Temple Tree Resort

A five-minute drive from lively Cenang Beach, the Temple Tree At Bon Ton is a unique heritage resort arranged around ancient trees and a sparkling outdoor swimming pool.

The eight buildings on the property are former private residences ranging from 70-110 years old, each with its own history and architectural charm. All are tastefully decorated with antique furniture yet well equipped with modern comforts, including flat-screen televisions, free Wi-Fi, and minibars.

The Temple Tree At Bon Ton invites visitors to relax in the Straits Club House, which features a library, billiards room, and wide verandahs with plenty of seating. Pets are welcome.

A Continental breakfast is delivered each evening for guests to enjoy at their leisure. The two restaurants on site, Nam and the Strait Club, offer Malaysian and international cuisine, and the Smiling Buffalo Cafe, a ten-minute walk, makes a mean all-day breakfast.

The Langkawi Cable Cars and the spectacular Langkawi Sky Bridge are within 20 kilometres of the resort. Underwater World is roughly five kilometres away.

Positive Reviews

Lovely heritage buildings in a peaceful setting

Travellers are generally charmed by the property's unique heritage buildings. Many comment on their interesting histories and antique furniture, particularly the wooden bathtubs. Guests enjoy the feeling of having "gone back in time," while also appreciating modern touches such as dvd players and refrigerators. Travellers are also very enthusiastic about the property's well-kept grounds, and note that the narrow paths, inviting sitting areas, and ancient trees add to the peaceful "old world" atmosphere of the resort.

Laid-back, yet professional hospitality

The resort staff are widely described as very friendly and professional. Travellers appreciate that the team is always available to help with any issues and sightseeing or travel arrangements. Guests also rave about the food at the on-site restaurants, and those who like to sleep in are very pleased with the resort's policy of delivering breakfast the night before.

A paradise for cat lovers

The resort was founded, in part, to support an animal shelter; a percentage of its profits go directly to this cause, and the resort itself is home to many friendly cats. For guests who love cats, particularly those travelling solo or without their own pets, the presence of these furry companions is a great plus.

Negative Reviews

Mosquitos bug some travellers

Travellers have been bothered by mosquitos and other insects in their rooms, despite the mosquito nets and coils provided.

Limited Wi-Fi and no cable TV on site

While many travellers enjoy being "disconnected" on vacation and find the lack of reliable Wi-Fi and cable television to be part of the resort's old-world charm, others are merely annoyed by it.

Quiet, please

None of the old wooden buildings are perfectly soundproof, though the severity of the issue varies from one to the next as they are all very different.
