There is now compelling reason to revisit the Jewel of Kedah for those who think they’ve seen all of it, and even better incentives for those who have yet to explore our country’s third largest island.
Beginning operations just last week, The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi prides itself in offering an inimitable oceanfront resort experience highlighted by natural surroundings and imbued with influences from the local culture.
Here’s what to expect at The Ritz-Carlton’s first resort and second property in Malaysia.
Wake up to a tropical paradise by the bay at one of the resort’s 75 guest rooms, 15 suites and 29 villas – designed with references to Malay architecture to reflect the kampongs nearby.
Indulge at four distinct dining venues offering panoramic views of the Andaman Sea. Take your pick from local fare at the Langkawi Kitchen, Western cuisine at the Beach Grill, Chinese seafood at Hai Yan or evening drinks at the adults-only Horizon Sunset Bar.
Witness an exclusive performance of the traditional tarian payang on the beach, while enjoying the “golden hours” of the sunrise and sunset. Other culturally immersive experiences await the rest of the day, including guided jungle walks and silat demonstrations.
Don’t neglect some pampering with the resort’s unique spa rituals, infused with local traditional elements for an authentic Langkawi touch. Five cocoon-shaped pavilions resembling the Malay Bubus or woven fish traps welcome you at the spa, along with captivating oceanic views for a full restoration of the mind, body and soul.
