Langkawi Private Pool Villa Reviews

Here are full reviews of all the private pool villa Langkawi options!

Andaman Langkawi Review

private pool and jacuzzi Langkawi

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

The Andaman Langkawi is a personal favourite of ours as we had so much fun when we stayed here with our kids. It has a good balance of being a big resort with many facilities while having plenty of space so you still feel very away from it all.

Along with the Four Seasons, it’s the best options on this list of hotels in Langkawi with private pool for families with a fabulous kids club known as the Young Explorers Club.

However, whether you are a family or not, you will absolutely love this Langkawi private pool hotel’s Executive Pool Suites. These suites are just beautiful and big – they are more like large one bedroom apartments.

They consist of a big bedroom area with king-sized bed, a huge bathroom with an awesome bath and a big living area where you can make up a sofa bed if you are travelling with kids. This is what we did and it suited our family of four beautifully.

The star attraction, however, is definitely the fabulous terrace area complete with private pool. You can see part of ours pictured above.

The pool is a decent size for a private pool, being like a small lap pool. There is also enough space on the terrace to relax and enjoy the surroundings. We were also lucky enough to have direct beach access from our terrace. Most of these suites have trees outside instead but are just seconds walk from the beach.

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

There are many other room types as well as a suite with a private jacuzzi.

The Andaman is a luxury resort so if you can pull yourself away from your room with private pool in Langkawi, you will find top rate facilities.

The private beach, for a start, is beautiful. The resort is basically between the beach and rainforest and it makes for a really stunning location. This is a secluded part of Langkawi so this resort is for people who want to get away from it all.

There is a huge communal pool to splash around in and relax by if you tire of your own or the beach and you can go on guided walks in the rainforest. You can learn about coral in the coral nursery and snorkel.

There is a daily activity schedule not just for kids in the kids club but also for adults.

The seclusion of the resort means you will probably eat here a lot of the time so luckily there are some great options with four restaurants and several bars/lounges serving a variety of cuisines. We particularly enjoyed the seafood.

Best parts?

The gorgeous location, excellent standard of facilities and rooms, great private pools and the kids club.

Worst parts?

This resort is somewhat isolated so it’s for people who mostly want to hang out at a resort.


The Andaman is perfect for anyone looking for secluded, beachfront luxury where you can stay in top class Langkawi accommodation with private pool. This is one of our favourite resorts anywhere and we particularly recommend it for families. You will love this Langkawi resort private pool option.

The Datai Langkawi Review

Another luxury choice for a hotel in Langkawi with private pool is right next door to the Andaman at the Datai. This is also for people who want secluded luxury surrounded by nature with this private pool hotel Langkawi well positioned in the rainforest and by the same private beach as the Andaman.

It also has what is perhaps the best private pool villas in Langkawi. You will feel like you have escaped the world here!

This Langkawi resort with private pool options has a variety of room types. The best ones with private pool are the one and two bedroom beach villas and the rainforest pool villa.

The difference between a rainforest and beach villa is whether you want to be surrounded by rainforest or have a beach view – I promise you will love both options! Either way, you will have a spacious, beautiful villa with a great outdoor area complete with a big ten-metre pool.

If you can force yourself to leave your villa, there are also many facilities here. You can enjoy the beach, one of the three pools (for adults, families and toddlers), health club, water sports and there are also many nature activities for all ages.

The resort also has four restaurants and two shops and the good news is that rates include breakfast, afternoon tea, minibar and airport transfers.

A huge plus for this Langkawi hotel private pool option is that it only recently re-opened after a complete refurbishment. This means the whole resort is just sparkling right now! It’s the perfect time to go.

Best parts?

The beautiful location, the private and secluded villas, the great sized pools. Pure luxury!

Worst parts?

It is removed from the main parts of Langkawi, kids are only welcome if they are quiet (even in the family pool!) and it is expensive (but you get what you pay for).


If you want the absolute top choice of resorts in Langkawi with private pool then this is it! You will really feel like you have escaped it all with fabulous, private pool villas in a stunning location. We especially recommend these Langkawi private villa options for a romantic break.

The Westin Langkawi Review

Another 5-star option for a Langkawi hotel with private pool is The Westin Langkawi. This choice is particularly good if you want a spacious villa with private pool in Langkawi in a more convenient location.

The Westin has its own private (and nice) beach like the options above but it’s also just minutes drive away from Kuah which is the major town on the island and where the main jetty is located. This means it is much easier to get out and see things and eat and shop somewhere other than the resort if you wish.

This hotel with private pool in Langkawi has many room types but the ones you should consider are the private villas Langkawi that range from one to five bedrooms that come with their own private pool. We particularly love the one bedroom beachfront pool villas.

All villas are well presented and have living spaces, spacious bathrooms and bedrooms.  They also have beautiful outdoor areas with their pools. For the ultimate in luxury when travelling with family or a group, try the five bedroom villa. It’s huge with gorgeous views.

Take a quick look at a one bedroom villa below. In 17 seconds, it’ll convince you that you want to stay here!

When you pull yourself out of the pool, there are many facilities at the Westin including the 500 metre private beach, four pools, gym and spa. For families, there is a kids club. There are also many water sports, squash and tennis courts and, of course, multiple restaurants and bars.

Best parts?

The convenient location, the lovely private pool villas Langkawi and the fact that they range from one to five bedrooms.

Worst parts?

The Danna Langkawi Review

Another luxurious option for a Langkawi villa with private pool is The Danna Langkawi. Winner of TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice 2019 Award, this hotel features colonial architecture with modern facilities and is a fantastic choice for people looking for a resort away from the crowds but close to attractions like the Langkawi Cable Car.

The Danna is located on its own private beach at the foot of mountains. It’s a beautiful location.

There are a range of rooms, suites and villas to choose from. All are gorgeous and well decorated with floor to ceiling windows for winning views. Air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities and sitting areas are standard.

However, what you will be most interested in are the hotel with private pool Langkawi options as not all room types have this.

You can chose between a royal imperial suite or two types of beach villas both with private infinity pool. Any of these Langkawi villa private pool options are just fantastic.

The top private pool villa in Langkawi option here is the Empress Beach Villa which has two bedrooms, a living room, a 163 sq metre infinity lap pool and an outdoor jacuzzi. It’s simply stunning.

The villas also come with a range of extras including minibar, laundry services, bubbly buffet breakfast and afternoon snacks.

Four Seasons Langkawi Review

Langkawi hotels with pool

Another 5-start option for a Langkawi villa resort with private pool is the Four Seasons Langkawi. This resort is tucked away in a UNESCO World Geopark, surrounded by jungle and with a private 1.8 kilometre beach stretching along the Andaman Coast.

If you want beauty, you definitely have that here! The Four Seasons is a quiet, family-oriented retreat and we particularly recommend this resort for families.

While being out of the way, this Langkawi private pool resort is still just 20 kilometres from the Langkawi International Airport.

There are a variety of room types but the ones you should look at for a private pool are the villas. All the villas have at least a plunge pool with the three bedroom family villas and the royal beach villa having bigger options.

You can chose villas accommodating from three to eight people so these can be a great options for groups or large families. Any option is private, stunning, spacious and with indoor and outdoor areas. There is a choice of garden or sea view and some have direct beach access.

You can see inside one of the villas here – you will be impressed!

There are many facilities and activities at the Four Seasons particularly in the surrounding nature. You can snorkel, birdwatch, go on mangrove safaris or island hopping. Of course, you can also relax on the private beach or take a walk through the surrounding rainforest.

There is a superb kids club with a daily program for children aged 4 to 12. This includes activities like batik painting, safari cruises, treasure hunts and kids’ yoga. For teenagers there are special activities too like archery, rock climbing and henna tattoo design.

For family time, you could attend a cooking class, go kayaking or kite-flying on the beach. There are a lot of options at this resort.

There are multiple eating and drinking options and you will be well taken care of.

Best Parts?

The Four Seasons has stunning pool villas in a stunning location with many activities on offer.

Worst Parts?

It is a very large resort so it takes time to walk from one side to the other. However, there is a buggy service to help get you out. It is secluded so you need to be happy eating most meals here.

La Villa Langkawi Review

La Villa Langkawi is perfect for private pool seekers looking for a location closer to the heart of the action in Langkawi who don’t need 5-star resort facilities.

Just a few minutes’ drive from the main beach at Pantai Cenang, there are a lot of eating, shopping and activity options around here – although note that you don’t have a beach by the resort itself.

This accommodation differs from the others on the list as it doesn’t have a ton of facilities – it’s really just about the villas although you can have a massage in your room or a tour arranged.

The La Villa Langkawi – private pool options are great. You have a choice from one bedroom villas either with a regular (but fine) pool or a deluxe private pool. All villas are well presented and have living areas, full kitchens with stove tops, microwaves and kettles.

The bedrooms have a king-sized bed.

hotels with pool in Langkawi

The St Regis Langkawi is another 5-star hotel private pool Langkawi option just a short drive from Kuah town but still in a luxurious location with a private beach. Lying in the resort infinity pool, you have great views over the beach and Andaman Sea.

This resort has some nice facilities and you can enjoy the day spa, gym or set out to see the island from the tour desk. For dining, there are multiple restaurants, a cafe, bars and, of course, the option to take the short drive to Kuah for many more choices.

There are also private dining options which are particularly romantic.

There are a range of room types – as a private pool seeker, you definitely want to look into the one-bedroom pool suites and sunset villas which all come with plunge pools. For more luxury (or for bigger groups) there is also a spectacular 4-bedroom, Sunset Royal Villa with pool which is a top contender for the best villa in Langkawi.
