Ghostly encounter in Hotel Langkawi

Although an atheist, I do believe in the supernatural existence of spirits and ghosts. This recent encounter happened to me 2 months ago while holidaying in Kondo Istana, Langkawi. This is very very very real, right from the start to the end.

In Langkawi, 2 months ago, I met this young chap who’s family is quite well off. Let’s call him Boy. He invited me, my girlfriend and another girl to Langkawi with all expense paid by him. I believe this is something not to be missed by anyone definitely. Fast-forward to on the day of the trip, we docked on Langkawi’s jetty at around 12pm. Right off the jetty, we got to a duty free liquor and checked into Kondo Istana in Kuah which is owned by Boy’s family. We got a room on the 4th floor and immediately ordered 8 plates of lamb chop from the cafeteria. By the time the 2 bottles of liquor were empty, it was already 7pm. Well, as expected the unit was in a thorough mess and Boy suggested we shift to another unit.

Since we didn’t really unpack yet as it was just a unit to drink have fun upon arrival, we just took all our stuff and went up to the highest 13th floor which housed penthouse units. We entered and as soon as we stepped into the unit, my girlfriend felt uncomfortable as she’s pretty sensitive to these things. Although such, not a word about what she felt was expressed as she didn’t want to spoil the mood of the holiday.

Let me explain the layout of the penthouse. There are 2 levels where the living room,dining room, kitchen and a room was located on the lower floor. On the first floor, there’s the family den, a toilet and 3 other rooms. The master bedroom was taken by me and my girlfriend whereas Boy and the other girl shared another as the girl is scared of staying alone. The other extra room was left vacant. As we were all up on the 2nd floor unpacking, my girlfriend was thirsty and went down to the lower floor to make a call for room service for a few bottles of mineral water. As she was making the call, she felt someone staring at her from behind so she turned and she saw a squarish shadow. She thought it was her own but as soon as she had that thought the shadow glided and vanished. She felt goosebumps and immediately hanged up the call and rushed up to us. She didn’t tell us what just happened though.

We chilled and chatted till it was about 2 to 3am and decided to call it a night. Boy and the other girl adjourned to their room while me and my girlfriend took our bath. After bathing we realized we forgot to bring our toothpaste and so my girlfriend decided to ask it from the other girl. She went out from our room and she heard people chatting downstairs, so she went down thinking both Boy and the girl were downstairs talking. Halfway down the staircase, she realized the conversation were in a foreign tongue. She peeped and didn’t see anyone in the living room. Up she rushed again, and she found out Boy and the girl were already in their room dozing off. She managed to wake the girl up and to get the toothpaste and come back to me pretending nothing happened. Before sleeping, me and my girlfriend had heard knocks on our balcony sliding door. She seemed a little freaked out so I opened it and checked. What I saw was a bird nest on top of the balcony so i just told her it should be the birds. I would like to stress to fellow readers that only my girlfriend was aware of what was happening around, the rest of us were unaware of anything sinister.

On the second day, we went out shopping and such. We brought back seafood for dinner and quite handful of beers and a bottle of liquor. We played some drinking games till late. Boy suddenly said he wanted to bath so he went to our master bedroom’s toilet as the other one did not have a heater. While he was bathing upstairs, me, my girlfriend and the other girl continued chatting in the living room. Suddenly we heard him shouted for us. We presume he forgot to bring his towel or shampoo in the toilet so we just ignored his call. As it was getting late, we too, decided to continue our chat in our room. Suddenly, Boy came out of the toilet and started scolding the other girl telling her not to play these kind of tricks on him. We were bewildered and asked him what had happened. He said he heard knocks on his toilet door while we were downstairs and he saw a black shadow behind the shower curtain. It then dawned upon my girlfriend that what she suspected all along was true and so she blurted out what happened the night before. The black shadow and the knocks. That certainly brought out the spooks out of us so Boy and the girl decided to sleep in our room as we had a king-sized bed.

At that time both the girls were really terrified. I kept comforting my girlfriend that it was nothing. About 3am, the knocks started on the toilet door. All of us were on the bed and we looked at each other. It wasn’t like people knocking on the door. It was like as if there was someone on the other side of the toilet door holding on the knob and shaking the door a couple of times. I honestly believed it was the wind. The three of them were spooked. So I got up and opened the toilet door to prove nothing was there. The atmosphere calmed down a little, but we decided that it was best to change room the next day. As we speak the room door started to knock instead! It was totally uncalled for!!! First it was the toilet door and now its our room’s door? We tried ignoring it but the knocks came every 5 minutes or so.

As the girls were close to tears, one by one..we could actually hear all the doors outside knocking. And the best part was that our room’s door knob started to turn. But that whatever it was outside did not dare open our door. We started to hear footsteps outside too! It sounded like slippers walking on sticky floor *PRAAAP* PRAAAP* PRAAAAP*. Well, that was the last straw. I told them, “okay, let’s get out of here!”. We quickly packed our bags and stormed out from that fateful penthouse unit, sitting at the lobby of the apartment till the sun rises.

Honestly when I was there I wasn’t scared at all. I was just amused at what was happening. But as I’m writing this, goosebumps fletched from my skin. Who knows what would have happened if we didn’t leave that night. We enquired the staff about that particular room but they were not aware if it was haunted, citing the penthouse units weren’t popular. As such it was left unoccupied for a long time.
