Langkawi is continuously growing and becoming one of the most sought after island getaways in Malaysia for both international and domestic tourists alike. This stems from many different factors. One of which is definitely the wide selection of things to do on the island. Unlike tiny islands, Langkawi has a healthy mix of duty-free shopping, nice public beaches, and quite a few ecotourism attractions. Throw in picture perfect sunsets, top-notch cable car rides, and impressive waterfalls and you start to get the idea. Langkawi is one of our favourite Malaysian isles because it’s convenient, affordable and relatively laidback despite its growing popularity. What many tourists don’t know is that Langkawi also has some of the most exclusive resorts in all of Southeast Asia. These are balanced by budget guesthouses and boutique hotels. If you are going to Langkawi we hope that this accommodation overview will help make it easier for you to find the right hotel that suits your personal preferences. Our main goal is to provide you with reputable suggestions and opinions based on the combination of our own personal experiences visiting Langkawi and the guest reviews found on the top hotel booking site in Southeast Asia.
Top Luxury Resorts on Langkawi Island:
The Datai Langkawi is without question, one of, if not the best luxury resort on Langkawi Island – and maybe even Malaysia for that matter. The selling points for the Datai are definitely its isolated position on the north corner of Langkawi. Therefore, it’s ideal for relaxation and pampering, but you don’t stay at the Datai if you want a ‘wild’ beach scene. A couple of other things that you might find interesting about this resort is the fact that it is very close to Temerun Falls and it has one of the nicest new golf courses in the world – ‘The Els Club – Teluk Datai’.
If you also want to celebrate your ‘honeymoon’ for instance, then another spectacular luxury resort on Langkawi Island is Four Seasons Langkawi. Prominently located on arguably Langkawi’s nicest beach – Tanjung Rhu. We have been on Tanjung Rhu beach on many occasions. If you want to stare out at stunning limestone karts while enjoying a serene beach environment, then this is a no-brainer. With the smallest room at 68 m2 expect plenty of space to relax and rejuvenate.
