Retreat to a paradise. Retreat to The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa, surrounded by the idyllic natural setting of the magical Langkawi Island. Situated on 500 meters of private beachfront, our resort offers a retreat from the rigors of travel, yet is only one kilometre from the main harbour of Langkawi, three kilometres from Kuah duty-free shopping centres, and 20 minutes from the Langkawi International Airport. Leave behind the hectic city life and enter a sense-awakening oasis that refreshes and de-stresses the mind and body. The aromatic scent of White Tea candles, a touch of nature in the decorated botanicals, refreshing drinks, and the invigorating cold towel service will fill your visit with unforgettable memories long after you leave.

Pangkor Laut Island
Perak



Pangkor Laut is a privately owned island located three miles off the West Coast of Malaysia along the Straits of Malacca. This piece of paradise has been 2 million years in the making, and here you will find one of the world’s premier resorts nestling in the shade of forest giants as old as the land.

Of the island's 300 acres, only a fraction has been developed to house the Resort and its eight Estates. Wooden buildings blend seamlessly into the forest as if nature had been the architect dictating how walls curve around foliage, and roofs open up to allow trees to continue on their journey to the sky.

Nature is respected here, almost revered, and it rewards visitors in ways that simply need to be experienced.
