Pondok Keladi, Langkawi
Pondok Keladi started as a dream idea in 2003. We wanted a hous near to the coast but conveniently away from the nightlife of numerous restaurants and resorts. Now it has become a reality, located in a small secluded area of Langkawi Island.
Situated close enough to the natural beaches (15 min walk) with the subtle nightlife of restaurants and shops at Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah, the retreat of Pondok Keladi offers peace and tranquility on this beautiful island.
Set in an acre of coconut trees, adjacent to the wooded hillside, it is ideally suited to those who wish to unwind and enjoy the atmosphere of a small kampung. At the beginning of the drive there are picturesque views of padi fields and distant hilly horizon.
Pondok Keladi has a unit of six bedroom rooms, complete with open sided, centrally located covered area called the Balai and communal kitchen for guests to cook up a storm.
The garden has been planted with various tropical species of flora, and there are several lily ponds. In the adjacent woodland there are often monkeys in the coconut and rubber trees, including the Dusky Leaf monkeys. We also have hornbills, eagles, squirrels, flying foxes, butterflies and other exotic birds who come to observe us at times.
From the entrance of Pondok Keladi, a left turn will take you to the main road, left at this point takes you to the beach and restaurants/shops and airport (15 min drive), a right turn takes you to Kuah town (20 min drive).
Turn right from Pondok Keladi entrance and the undulating road takes you, bordering the padi fields, to a small inlet mooring point for some local fishing boats at the edge of mangrove swamp (20 min walk).
