On Malaysia’s north-western coast, Four Seasons Resort Langkawi is the coveted destination for a paradisiacal retreat back into nature. Set against a stunning backdrop of all-pervading rainforest, guests can embark on a tropical escapade, and marvel at inspiring views of luscious foliage, swathes of platinum white sand and shimmering Andaman Sea coastline. Replete with incandescent natural beauty and home to UNESCO-protected mangroves, pursuits in this wondrous wilderness range from the energetic to the contemplative. Inquisitive explorers can take a journey into the dense forestry on a sunrise nature hike or rock climb, or become acquainted with the ocean thanks to an extensive range of adventurous water sports, including X-Jetblades, which are unique to Four Seasons, mangrove kayaking and wakeboarding. Those that lean more towards relaxation can visit The Geo Spa to achieve infinite wellbeing through ancient balancing energies and techniques.
Ninety one villas and pavilions are nestled either in tropical greenery or situated beachfront, each promising sublime views. Bathrooms are a focal point at the resort; generously proportioned and featuring a gargantuan soaking tub, privileged relaxation time is not compromised here. Spacious and airy, they are the perfect vantage point for revelling in the boundless surrounding nature. Villas imbue a sense of heritage-chic, with Moorish and Malay artefacts and large pillar candles in bathrooms.
Evoking the sophistication and style of Italy, Serai presents Italian-inspired specialties in a refined venue furnished with chandeliers, wind chimes and stone and timber. Ikan Ikan, Malay for ‘fish’, is built in the style of a limas, a traditional Malaysian home. Inspired by the surrounding Andaman Sea, this casual beachfront pavilion showcases south eastern Asian specialties. After dinner, enjoy a sundowner amidst a warm bonfire and tiki torches. Kelapa Grill presents succulent flame-grilled steaks, wood-fired pizzas and Asian stir fries. The essence of the Middle East is captured at Rhu Bar, with features like water pipes and intricate wooden screens. Lounge on a wicker sofa and brightly coloured cushions, and choose a wine, tropical cocktail or specialty malt.
In this corner of paradise, luxury and indigenous charm seamlessly co-exist, and with a myriad of activities, there is something to please everybody.
