Best Options For A Hotel With Private Pool Malaysia

Langkawi Options For A Resort With Private Pool Malaysia

Langkawi is a well known destination which is home to an international airport and many domestic flights making it an easy place to visit.

More importantly, however, is that there are quite a few pool villa Malaysia choices! Find them below…

Andaman Langkawi

private pool room Malaysia Andaman

This private pool suite could be all yours right by the beach!

The Andaman Langkawi is one of the top places we have stayed in the world. The resort itself is beautiful and so are the private pool suites!

The Andaman is located in a secluded part of Langkawi. You are surrounded by rainforest and on a beautiful, private beach which is well looked after. This is definitely the choice for people looking to get away from it all as it’s a bit of a drive from anywhere else.

There are many room types including the choice of a suite with a private jacuzzi or (our personal favourite) you can have a condo with private pool Malaysia.

These excutive pool suites are large – more like one bedroom apartments. They have a living area, big bedroom with king bed and a huge bathroom with great bath. Outside, they have a lovely terrace area complete with private pool. You can see part of ours pictured above.

The pool is a decent size and a good depth. We loved the terrace area around it where you can relax in between dips.

If you are travelling as a family, you can get pool suites with a fold out sofa bed in the living room. These suites comfortably fit a family of four.

You can see inside an executive pool suite in the following video.

The Andaman is a luxury resort and has more on offer than just top class pool suites. The private beach is beautiful. There is a huge pool and, of course, the rainforest is right there to explore. You can even go on guided walks. There is also a coral nursery where you can learn about coral and snorkel.

There is an unreal kids club (the Young Explorers Club) with a great program of events. There are many events and activities for adults as well.

When you get hungry, there are four restaurants and several bars/lounges. There are many cuisines on offer and the food is fabulous. We particularly enjoyed the seafood.


It is hard to beat the Andaman Langkawi if you are looking for a secluded, luxury beach resort where you can stay in a top-class suite with your own pool inside hotel room Malaysia. This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The private pool suites and beach are excellent and we highly recommend it.

The Datai Langkawi

This resort is situated by a beach surrounded by jungle

Located next door to the Andaman, this is another top class option for people who want serious, secluded luxury surrounded by rainforest by a glorious beach with maybe the best private pool villa in Malaysia.

The Datai shares the Andaman’s private beach but is more focused on the rainforest and you will really feel like you have escaped it all here.

Of the many room types, the best ones for people looking for a bungalow with private pool Malaysia are the one and two bedroom beach villas and the rainforest pool villa.

You can choose whether to have a beach view or to be surrounded by rainforest. Either option will give you a spacious, private villa with a beautiful outdoor area complete with ten-metre pool.

Rates include breakfast, afternoon tea, minibar and airport transfers.

This resort is not lacking facilities either. You can enjoy the private beach, the three pools (one for adults, one for families and one for toddlers), water sports, health club and many nature activities both for children and adults.

When you’re hungry, there are four restaurants. There are also two shops.

One of the best parts about The Datai is that it only recently re-opened after shutting down for a complete refurbishment. So everything is extra beautiful and lovely right now.


If you want the absolute top choice of resort with private swimming pool in Malaysia then this is it! You will really feel like you have escaped it all with fabulous, private pool villas in a stunning location.

The downside is that this does cost and this is one of the most expensive options on this list. It also isn’t as kid-friendly as the Andaman next door with kids needing to keep quiet even in the family pool! However, if these aspects aren’t an issue for you, you will love it!

The Westin Langkawi

The Westin is a top resort in Langkawi

Your final option if you are looking for a Malaysia beach resort with private pool in Langkawi is The Westin. This 5-star resort is a great option if you are looking for a private pool but don’t want to be in a secluded location.

While it is still tucked away on its own private (and nice) beach, it is also just minutes drive from the centre of Kuah, the major town on the island and the jetty off the island. This makes it easy to get out and eat and shop elsewhere if you chose.

There are many room types, but the best ones are definitely the holiday villa with private pool Malaysia. There are a range of villas from one to five bedrooms that all come with their own private pool. We particularly love the one bedroom beachfront pool villas.

All villas have living spaces, beautiful outdoor areas with their pools, spacious bathrooms and bedrooms and are just beautiful. For the ultimate in luxury on a family trip, try the five bedroom villa. It’s huge with gorgeous views.

You can have a quick look at a one bedroom villa below. It’s gorgeous!

There are many facilities at this five-star hotel including a 500 metre private beach, four pools, a kids club, gym and spa. There are also many watersports, squash and tennis courts and, of course, multiple restaurants and bars.


This luxury resort is perfect if you are looking for your own little villa with private swimming pool in Malaysia to escape the world while having all the facilities of a top hotel and a stretch of private beach. You are also just a short drive from a town with many eating options and shopping.

Looking from the ocean back towards the private pool and the hotel room at the Grand Lexis

You can see inside our executive pool villa in the following video. It is spacious with a kitchen area complete with some crockery, cutlery and a microwave and we loved the glass panel on the floor to see underneath. The free minibar is an extra touch and there is a lock high up on the door to the pool which is great if you are travelling with kids.

The Grand Lexis is obviously located on the coast of Port Dickson. It is home to many facilities including some big general pools, spa, bar, restaurant, water playground and bike rental. There are other eating options close by if you would prefer to leave the resort.

You can also enjoy activities both inside and out with a big games room and an inflatable maze, archery, segways and mini electric cars. There is also an indoor playground and karaoke room.

This Malaysia pool villa resort is also a good price. It is much more affordable than most others on this list and, being only a fifty minute drive from KL airport, this resort is perfect for a Malaysia stopover.
