Berjaya Resort LangkawiCategory: 5-Star Luxury, Location: Pantai Kok
So what makes Berjaya so unique and attractive to its guests? Well, which other resort would have over 400 luxury chalets spread over 70 acres of land area, many of which are within the lush rain forests and others right on the sea water. Berjaya is located at the far end of Burau Bay
. So why stay near the water when it's possible to stay right on it.
That's the theme which Berjaya projects to those who love to be closest to the water. And for others, there are many superb chalets that are nestled in the deep rainforest. The only sound you get there are the chirping of the birds and only thing that you see there are the lush green nature's bounty.
All the chalet are tastefully built with elegance and luxury. The architecture and the interior designs combine modern with old charm. A perfect blend in a forested area that leads down to the waterfront.
There are pathways through the entire landscape of the resort and much part of it passes through the rainforest of mount Mat Cincang. You can either choose to walk between facilities or wait for a battery operated cart to come to pick you up and drop you wherever you want.
Berjaya Resort, The Lobby
In fact after you check in at the main lobby, you will be transported to your chalet in a cart. These carts keep moving around and you can either hop on or off, or call up the front desk and ask for one from your chalet. As you pass through the pathway, you will see many different birds and even many small wild animals like squirrels, monkeys etc.

Will Berjaya Resort, being a far off place create problem in our visits throughout the island. Can we get cabs all the time there for our trips to Cenang beach, underwater world, shopping etc?
Raj (langkawi-insight.com) July 2014
Berjaya is quite isolated. The hotel reception can call taxi or arrange transport for you. Taxis are not always available there. If Cenang beach, shopping etc are your priority, then Berjaya is a wrong choice. It's good for those who like to remain within resort area, enjoy rainforest and the water views. Cable car and Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells) waterfalls are of course quite close.
