Langkawi Private Pool Villa Reviews

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

The Datai Langkawi Review

Address: Jalan Teluk Datai, Langkawi, Kedah

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 as this private pool hotel Langkawi offers is well positioned in the rainforest and by the same private beach as the Andaman.

The Datai 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 which have a 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.

This resort with private pool in Langkawi 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?

Apart from the private and secluded villas, the best thing about this hotel with private pool in room Langkawi offers is the beautiful location.

Worst parts?

Unfortunately, this private pool resort Langkawi offers is removed from the main parts of Langkawi.  Plus, 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.

Four Seasons Langkawi Review

Langkawi hotels with pool

Address: Jalan Tanjung Rhu, Langkawi

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 people looking for hotels in Langkawi with private pool 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 choose villas accommodating from three to eight people so these can be a great option 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 are also the usual resort facilities with a gorgeous pool, gym and day spa.

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?

If you’re after a hotel room with private pool Langkawi has, then you’ll love the Four Seasons stunning pool villas which are in a stunning location with many activities on offer.

Worst Parts?

It is a huge 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 about eating most of your meals within the resort.


The Four Seasons Langkawi is in a stunning location while still being accessible to attractions in Langkawi. There are a ton of activities on offer for adults and kids and you can stay in a gorgeous private villa in Langkawi in a range of sizes.

The Ritz Carlton Langkawi Review

Address: Jalan Pantai Kok, Teluk Nibung, Langkawi

Situated on the gorgeous sandy beaches along the Andaman Sea, this high-end resort offers guests a one of a kind experience where luxury is intertwined with nature. 

This 5-star resort offers superb amenities like 4 restaurants, 3 outdoor pools (1 pool for children,) a spa and sauna, gym, kids club, overwater gazebos, tennis courts, and private beach. 

There is a range of room options available which come with or without private pools.  The room types which come with a private pool private have stunning views of either the rainforest, beach or are set in villas over the ocean.  There really is nothing better than one of these Langkawi private pool hotel villas over the water and, with three bedroom options, this is one of the best Langkawi resorts with private pool for families.

The St Regis Langkawi Review

hotels with pool in Langkawi

Address: Jalan Pantai Beringin, 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 the 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 is 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 if you are looking for a Langkawi villa for family) there is also a spectacular 4-bedroom, Sunset Royal Villa with pool which is a top contender for the best villa in Langkawi.

You can see inside a pool suite here:

The Westin Langkawi Review

Address: Jalan Pantai, Jalan Dato Syed Omar, Langkawi

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 offers that range from one to five bedrooms and 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?

One of the best things about this Langkawi hotel with private swimming pool is the convenient location.  Plus these lovely private pool villas Langkawi offers are huge, ranging from one to five bedrooms.

Worst parts?

The location is not as beautiful as others on this list.


This best resort in Langkawi with private pool is perfect if you are looking for your own villa with private swimming pool for lots of fun while having all the facilities of a 5-star hotel and a private beach. You also have the added benefit of being just a short drive from a town with many eating and shopping options.

The Danna Langkawi Review

Address: Pantai Kok, Langkawi

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. It 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 is 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 choose 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.

Take a quick look at one of the villas below.

If you can pull yourself away from your private villa Langkawi offers, there are a range of facilities including a stunning infinity pool, gym and day spa. There is also a range of dining options, a kids club and a business centre.

Best parts?

These are premium Langkawi villas with private pool and a top choice, especially when combined with stunning scenery on a private beach. There is a great range of facilities making this a great choice for people who want to relax.

Worst parts?

You are somewhat isolated, so you can’t walk to many dining options. It’s about a 25 minute taxi ride to the main tourist area of Cenang.


When it comes to Langkawi resorts with private pool, the Danna is perfect for you if you want a stunning pool villa with plenty of space and great facilities while being surrounded by nature.

La Villa Langkawi Review

Address: Jalan Pantai Tengah, Langkawi

La Villa Langkawi is perfect for those after a Langkawi beach villa private pool option which is closer to the heart of the action in Langkawi and who don’t necessarily need 5-star resort facilities.

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

You can see inside the one bedroom pool villas here:

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 stovetops, microwaves and kettles.

The bedrooms have a king-sized bed.

Best parts?

The convenient location near Pantai Cenang and beautiful villas.

Worst parts?

Not by a beach and no resort facilities.
