THE ST. REGIS LANGKAWI
LA N GKA WI, MA LA YSIA
N E I G H B O R H O O D Faces Turquoise Andaman Sea
Lavish is the word at The St. Regis Langkawi. How else to describe the exquisite overwater
restaurant, Kayu Puti, or the colossal Sunset Royal Villa with tempered-glass floor panels in
the living room? Of course, the other 88 accommodations are equally elegant, with mahogany
flooring, rainfall showers and balconies that open to the jungle or Andaman Sea (and several
include private plunge pools). The resort sits close within Malaysia's first UNESCO Global
Geopark, offering ample opportunities for nature walks and watersports. Reflect upon a Bespoke Ritual before a traditional massage at Iridium Spa.
$100 value food and beverage credit per stay.
Family amenities are outstanding and
include a variety of thoughtfully designed
experiences, such as a safari through the
mangrove forest or a hands-on lesson in
making coconut oil.
