The Lowdown

Fringed by 10 million-year-old rainforests and surrounded by the Andaman Sea, the Langkawi resort has been designed to reflect a traditional kampong village with guest rooms, pool villas and a locally inspired spa.

The Facts

Sleep in the jungle, with all the comforts of the Ritz-Carlton. Langkawi is a cluster of 99 islands off mainland Malaysia, so a stay here is going to be all about getting out on the water. Guests can fill their days with water sports, waterfall hikes, cable car rides and hiking, or take advantage of duty-free shopping for local crafts – spend an afternoon picking up batik pieces, delicate beadwork and original ceramics in the artisan boutiques. If you’re in the mood for an adventure, head further afield with deep sea fishing or sailing around the archipelago, or explore the diving sites.
