The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa has officially opened on the idyllic island destination of Langkawi, Malaysia. Formerly the Sheraton Perdana Resort, The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa is the first Westin resort in Malaysia. The resort underwent major upgrade works to its extensive facilities over the past year, including the addition of Westin signature products and services like the Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Spa, luxury residential villas as well as extensive meeting facilities.

“We are delighted to welcome our first Westin resort in Malaysia. I know that guests to this stunning resort will be well served by Westin’s renowned hospitality. Our goal for the Westin brand is to provide accommodations that offer a retreat from the rigors of travel in which guests can relax and restore their mind, body and spirit in healthy ways, and this is definitely best achieved in an idyllic oasis of tranquility like Langkawi,” said Miguel Ko, President of Starwood Hotels, Asia Pacific.

The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa joins the Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort as the two Starwood properties on this island destination.
