Malaysia’s ultimate private hideaway

The Sheraton Langkawi Beach combines the overwhelming beauty of a Malaysian island paradise with the ultimate in sumptuous hospitality. It has just scooped “Malaysia’s Leading Resort” at the 2009 World Travel Awards, so what can we expect in 2010?

Langkawi, the isle of Legends, is the largest in a cluster of islands located in the straits of Malacca, just off the northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Steeped in mystery and mystique, the island offers spectacular views.  Jungle-clad mountains meet vast green rice fields, tranquil blue seas and soft sandy beaches.

Beautiful and serene, Langkawi is surprisingly accessible via air from regional cities, or a short cruise from Penang Island.  Whether you crave an exciting escape or a peaceful sanctuary – you will find it in Langkawi.

A 10-minute scenic drive from Langkawi International Airport and you will arrive at cosy Teluk Nibong along the Andaman Sea shore line.  Charmingly designed in Malaysian traditional style with a blend of contemporary architecture, the resort is nestled amidst 38 acres of spacious, lush tropical surroundings with an idyllic stretch of private beach coves, an ideal holiday getaway for honeymooners, families, and discerning travellers.

The smallest guest room is 52 square metres, all rooms have a private balcony or verandah complete with a day bed and ceiling fan making it the perfect place to laze around in the afternoon.  All 238 guests rooms are scattered around in chalets or two storeys buildings either by the sea or in the rain forest.


Your comfort and well-being are top priorities. Experience the celebrated “ahhhhh” of the Sheraton Sweet SleeperSM Bed for a good night’s rest, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.  Take a dip in the infinity pool or simply just relax on the spacious sundeck enjoying an elevated panoramic view of the Andaman Sea while sipping on a refreshing cocktail.  For the nature lover, spend some time exploring the resort and observe the exotic flora and fauna which are home to wide variety of wildlife including Flying Lemur, Long Tailed Macaque, Dusky Leaf Monkey, Giant Squirrel, Sea Otter, White Bellied Sea Eagle, Hornbill, Tree Shrews and Brahmin Kite.
