Seven antique Malay houses rebuilt in an old coconut plantation on the island of Langkawi Atmospheric, laid back and thoroughly unique, Bon Ton is a careful blend of conservation principles and design savvy. The small resort (or 'Coconut Village' as it used to be called) comprises 7 antique kampung houses acquired from islanders by Australian owner Narelle McMurtrie, and subsequently reassembled on a peaceful coconut plantation just north of Langkawi's longest beach. Colourful fabrics, Malay songket weavings and antique wood furnishings adorn each of the stilted wooden houses, which face a lily-strewn lagoon. Modern touches include luxury bathrooms, fridges, kettles and (in some of the houses) air-con. It's a far cry from the surrounding generic resort hotels, and what Bon Ton lacks in facilities, it more than makes up for in atmosphere. Even so, there's an attractive swimming pool, an antique yacht for charter, a west-facing cocktail deck, a wonderful restaurant serving Asian fusion cuisine and a lounge-bar set in a heritage Chinese shophouse. To top it all, it's fantastic value for money.
