With a location on 400 metres of sandy beach on the western coast of Langkawi, this resort offers picturesque views of the Andaman Sea and plenty of hideaways in the lush, ancient rainforest that surrounds it.
Room types here start with Rainforest Deluxe Rooms, and even these are strikingly spacious with separate seating areas, expansive bathrooms clad in ice jade and terraces that take in rainforest or sea vistas. There are also villas in a variety of locations, all featuring private pools. Hidden among the lush jungle, Rainforest Villas are recommended for those who want the ultimate in privacy.
Meal times are a treat here at any time of day, whether it’s breakfast at Langkawi Kitchen, lunch at The Beach Grill or dinner at fine-dining Cantonese restaurant Hai Yan. At sunset, grown-ups should head to the adult-only bar, Horizon, for sublime views accompanied by crafted cocktails.
With a keen sense of place, The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi seeks to provide guests with an authentic taste of Malay culture. This comes in the form of welcome rituals derived from local traditions as well as a host of guided activities, from trips to the natural beauty of Palau Payar Marine Park to complimentary lessons in Mak Inang, a traditional folk dance.
