We loved our stay at the box chalet. We stayed for four nights and we could not have asked for anything more. It's very basic, but spotlessly clean. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. You definitely need to have your own transport, we hired a scooter which we loved using. The island is very small and roads very simple,... More

- The rooms are clean - owners are helpful and friendly - Its a 5-10min drive from the main beach so you need to rent a scooter (around 30rm/day) or you can rent a car which i do normally for about 70 -140 depending on season and make or type of car you need - Over all I will recommend... More

The trip advisor reviews were so good for The Box Chalet that we didn't think twice to book. The location is just incredible and we spent time everyday just relaxing in their beautiful tropical garden. You can hire a car from the fabulous owners and get out and see the island so easily. Lovely breakfasts every day, we felt really... More

We were really sad to leave the Box Chalet after six nights being hosted by Mas and Fendi. We are on Langkawi for almost three weeks and have stayed for the previous week in Cenang so were a little nervous of being away from island life. The location is certainly away from it all: several kilometres from Cenang and not... More

We had booked for a week but changed our mind once we got there. The area is remote and isolated, even as small as Langkawi is. The positive I garnered from the one night we stayed is the wonderful host. The negatives include its isolated location in the remote country side, wifi connectivity (though we believe the host may turn... More

Me and my family stay for a night and we enjoy the stay very much. Kak Mas help us a lot in planning the trip even before we reach langkawi. The box chalet worth for the money we are paying, it is suitable for traveler who need a budget stay with comfortable environment as well as good host.

The place is located a kilometre or so off a main road, surrounded by the woods and far away from any noise. The chalet itself was simple and clean (a little dimly lit), and fairly spacious. However, the true stars of the show are Mas and Fandi, the proprietors of the place. They saw to my needs, discussing my travel... More

I spent 4 nights at the charming & spotlessly clean Box Chalet. I hesitated at first as they had no reviews on expedia but am so glad I did make a booking! If you are looking for a raucous, party environment close to the beach then this place is NOT for you! If you are looking for a charming place... More
