Raised on stilts above the shimmering blue of the Andaman Sea and conceptualized by the renowned architect Bill Bensley as a vintage beach house, Kayuputi exudes an atmosphere of relaxed glamour while taking one’s breath away with panoramic ocean views.
Opening with a ritual creak, the antique entrance door from the grand Dutch embassy in Yangon reveals a spacious, airy interior. The sunlight entering trough French windows gently bounces off the white-washed wood paneling, creating such a unique atmosphere, the ‘white wood’ which translates as ‘kayu puti’ inspired the name of this exquisite dining venue.

HAROO KOREAN RESTAURANT
KUAH - BANKING DISTRICT
(Map at the bottom)
Tel: +6 012 - 5140049
Operating Hours: noon - 10pm
Hidden in a tiny side street close to the bridge that leads from Kuah’s banking district to ‘My Hotel Langkawi’, the Korean Restaurant Haroo is a culinary gem just waiting to be discovered! Never heard of it? The regular guests who rarely skip a week without booking a table did make the impression they would rather keep ‘their’ small Korean restaurant a secret…:-)
Murals depicting scenes of the traditional Korean way of life set the tone for an experience that celebrates both - the authentic flavors of time-honored Korean dishes as well as the distinct Korean dining culture.
Help Belinda to find a NEW place
for the iconic ARTS Café in Kuah
The ARTS Café in Langkawi Fair is forced to close to make way for new 'Branded Outlet' and will have to shut its doors for good unless a new location in Kuah can be found (if possible before May 31st).
Belinda Koh, café owner has been told by her landlord, Langkawi Fair Sdn Bhd, that the Arts gallery cafe has to be relocated to make way for a new branded outlet. The management has offered a new location (at the far end of the mall) to relocate Arts Café, which Belinda feels is neither suitable nor appropriate that it should have to move at all.
