Want to live the Island Dream?

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHi!
    Nest Rooftop is a rooftop cafe located opposite Cenang Beach on the beautoful island of Langkawi, Malaysia.
    We are a small, friendly team looking for reliable volunteers to wait tables, help in the kitchen during the breakfast shift or the evening shift. We will provide accomodation and food. Any experience in hospitality is a bonus but we will provide full training. Anyone with creativity is also most welcome to help with promoting the business and the continuing maintenance of the restaurant.
    We are the only rooftop cafe and only free BYO cafe on the island , and it is really an amazing place to work as you get to take in the natural beauty of Langkawi every day.
  • LocationMalaysia, Kedah, Langkawi

    If you're a morning person then the breakfast shift is perfect for you - you will be finishing work as the rest of Langkawi gets up! If you're more of a night owl, then you can spend the day chilling at the beach or exploring the island and still finish work in time to hit the beach bars at night!

    Spend your off day zipping between Langkawi's 99 islands on a jet ski, paragliding, trekking the mountains and waterfalls, relaxing at the beach or enjoying the amazing food of Malaysia, not to mention the duty free booze and chocolate.
