The Ritz-Carlton Langkawi, a secluded Luxury Beach Resort surrounded by a 10-million-year-old rainforest
A tantalising tropical escape on the island of Langkawi, the recently-launched Ritz-Carlton Langkawi sits on a tranquil private cove that is flanked by ancient jungle, creating a secluded oceanfront enclave.
Inspired by the traditional kampong villages and conceived to offer travellers an authentic taste of the local culture, guests can choose from an imaginative menu of activities that includes visits to night markets, batik, ceramics and cooking classes, nature walks and swimming expeditions.
Accommodations range from rooms and suites to private pool villas, all generously proportioned, with tall windows, louvered shutters and intricately carved screens that integrate interior and exterior spaces. Gleaming marble bathrooms, crisp white linens and every in-room amenity you could hope for ensure a pampering stay.
Four dining venues serve palate-pleasing flavours from Malaysia, Thailand, India and China and the exceptional spa, where wicker treatment pods hang over the water, draws on ancient healing traditions to restore equilibrium in mind, body and spirit.
