Dear Friends,

2012 ended with fireworks on Pantai Cenang beach and thousands of lanterns lit the sky. Like a dream, the white lanterns floated gracefully into the heavenly night, bringing with it our hopes and wishes for the new year. After a sumptuous seven course dinner, a great Live band accompanied us as we danced the night away.
Now I hope 2013 has been treating you well so far. This year we are looking forward to welcome you back to your Home by the Sea. With our sunny tropical weather and soft sands it’s an escape from wherever you are, your home away from home.
Yours truly,
Tom Blachere
General Manager
Travel Tips

Travel made easy to Langkawi! Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia now provide more options traveling into this beautiful island.

Malaysian Airline has joined oneworld code- share program on 1st of February 2013. As part of oneworld Alliance, it helps to connect travellers to an extensive network of domestic and international destinations. Now, you can have more options for flying direct from your country to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This helps the commuters reduce the layover time between domestic to international flights.

Air Asia, a low cost airline is now offering flights from Perth, Australia to Langkawi, Malaysia. Although it is not a direct flight but with the ease of connecting services, there isn’t any more excuses not to travel to Langkawi.

Celebrate in a Casa’s Way

It was an honour to have you celebrate this special day with us. Our team at Casa del Mar celebrated our 2012 Staff Party and all the guests were welcomed to join us. Servers and chefs were hired for the Staff Party so we can enjoy the activities planned all day long. We spent the day with volley ball and soccer on the beach, water polo, treasure hunting and many more.

There was an amazing buffet spread of local delicacies for dinner along with live BBQ cooking and wok station. The evening highlighted with Award ceremony for many proud beaming staffs and prizes for participating guests. DJ Sopy topped the night with great music for all those dancing feet.

What's new?

Thank you for all your suggestions and feedback, we have since implemented some of them in our effort to make it a better home.

Given the little space of our gym, we have decided to replace our treadmill with a piece of equipment that should please both men and women. A combination of treadmill and cross trainer, Octane Elliptical is regarded worldwide as one of the most premium elliptical machine. It is known for the ergonomic design that produces smooth, comfortable and effective cardio and muscle toning workouts.

Magnifying mirrors have been installed in all bathrooms so you can admire those radiant happy faces after a few sunny days!

Mindful of your comfort and quietness during your stay at home, we have enhanced the room soundproofing.

We also now provide complimentary return airport transfer from 30th March 2013 for those with minimum stays of five consecutive nights in Seaview or Case Suites and for any bookings with higher room categories. Please make your bookings directly with us via our hotel website or email us to enjoy this complimentary transfer.
