The Gemalai Village

A soothing breeze, a calming lull
A private getaway in a ‘paddy village’ by the coast

Six private villas sitting on a lush paddy field just at the edge of Pantai Cenang, The Gemalai Village offers guests a most idyllic and unique vacation experience in Langkawi.

Wake up to the sounds of roosters crowing in a distance, breathe in the scent of the soft greens of a paddy field and enjoy breakfast in your room while accompanied by buffalos grazing lazily nearby, it is an experience to soothe the mind from the hustle of city life.

The Gemalai Village is an ideal getaway for honeymooners and those soon to be wed as the scenic location is suited for those romantic pre and post wedding photos.

To soothe the tired bodies, a visit to the in-house spa will help ease the aches away. For those looking for a lovingly prepared traditional meal, a visit to the Gemalai Restaurant is a must.

While it offers a calm and soothing vacation, The Gemalai Village is also just a short walk away from the lively Langkawi beachside town where guests can find great seafood restaurants, cafes by the beach, duty free shops, sights and a variety of tours.


All guest rooms are equipped with a spacious bathroom, water heater, telephone, toiletries, television with local channels, coffee/tea making facilities, wifi. The Gemalai Village also offers free parking for guests and bike rental.

What to do when you see a Monitor Lizard?

Take a photo!! But, do not chase them. They are shy creatures but can be fierce when cornered. These semiaquatic reptiles are fast on both land and in the water. Admire them from afar.
