Budget friendly chalets in Malaysia

By Nadia Sheng,

Chalets are a favourite accommodation type in Malaysia. Also known as bungalows, over water chalets in MY are cheaper than their Indonesian counterparts. Given chalets are standalone structures they’re more roomy than building-bound hotel rooms in the same price category. They’re also more private and idyllic as they’re more out to sea, situated on the beach or directly in the water. These budget friendly chalets will have you wondering why you’re not already there in your birthday suits!

Ombak Villa Langkawi

Ideally situated between airport and nature, the beachside Resort Ombak Villa Langkawi sits on the Andaman Sea and is five minutes by car from the airport. The best thing about this four star besides its full range of amenities and location is its unbelievably cheap price tag. High ceiling chalets that comprise several suites make up the hotel’s private, verdant seaside compound. Over water chalets in the same room category are also an option.
