Set beside the Andaman Sea and surrounded by a UNESCO protected mangrove reserve, towering cliffs and rainforest with lush gardens leading down to the beach, the Four Seasons Langkawi is the perfect paradise escape.
The stunning pavilions embody total tranquillity, whether you opt for serene garden views or heavenly ocean vistas. Tropical wood floors and furnishings combine with Spanish marble bathrooms creating an atmosphere inspired by nature, with Moorish and Malay artefacts providing flecks of culture throughout. The Beach Villas enjoy the best location in the resort, with the white sandy beach and crystal ocean just steps away from your deck, complete with a private plunge pool, outdoor whirlpool, private beach hammock, shaded pavilion and sunken garden shower.
The ideal resort for couples, the Geo Spa’s Raja and Ratu (King and Queen) ritual ensures total bliss. With indulgent body scrubs and massages combined with warm oil therapies and a traditional blessing ceremony, you are certain to feel at one with the serene landscape surrounding you. For something more energetic, take a lesson at the tennis court or head to the beach for volleyball and football. The resort’s watersports centre guarantees boundless fun on the waves, be it exploring the coast by kayak or getting the adrenaline pumping with a jet ski or windsurfing session. Further afield, guided cycling tours glimpse the best of the region’s natural beauty while a selection of golf clubs will tempt those looking to test their drive.
Tuck into delightful Mediterranean cuisine served on the beachfront terrace at Serai; sample delicious fish cooked using traditional Malay recipes at Ikan-Ikan; or watch the sun set over the sea with a cocktail in hand at Rhu Bar. Romantics will enjoy a candlelit private dinner under the stars or a sunset picnic with your toes buried in the sand at the appropriately named Love Beach.
