I popped over to Langkawi for a few days, like you do, and stayed at Temple Tree which is the younger sister of the infamous Bon Ton Resort. I could have moved in. They look after abandoned cats and dogs from around Malaysia so there are gorgeous cats everywhere (I dream of being a crazy old cat woman, rocking back and forth on my veranda), the food is delicious and the whole place has a super relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The owner Nurell has done a fantastic job, its pretty obvious she is an interior designer, I wanted to ship every piece of furniture home and the old Malaysian houses are just stunning. I did some Yoga with Dorothy of Langkawi Yoga, she runs retreats on the island and holds classes at the resorts. Of course, I also found a shop (at Bon Ton Resort), and bought my 28 millionth jumpsuit, for only HK$450, bargain. Here are some pics, make sure you stay there if you ever go to the island, it is so unique and homely compared to those giant branded hotels.
