Four Seasons Puts Langkawi on the Map

Four Seasons Hotels and
has added a new jewel to its collection of unique Asian resorts
with the official opening of Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, set amid the
legendary Malaysian islands that bear the same name. The new 91-room
resort includes an extraordinary spa, 20 beach villas measuring 220 square
metres, and an array of dining experiences.“Langkawi is a truly special place, ideal for those who wish to experience
the exotic in a setting unparalleled in its beauty,” said Wolf Hengst,
president worldwide hotel operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
“The Resort is set on a secluded beach against a backdrop of wild forest-
covered mountains and limestone cliffs among 99 islands of mystery, legend
and wonder.”

At the heart of the Resort is the Spa where each of the six spa pavilions,
or treatment rooms, is a sanctuary unto itself and custom designed
treatments reflect the multicultural nature of Malaysia. The experience
begins and ends in the privacy of the spacious pavilions where guests can
choose to partake in a private yoga lesson before experiencing a
traditional Malay or Thai massage, an Ayurvedic treatment from India or
one of the ancient Chinese therapies on offer. Private outdoor plunge
pools and soaking tubs are set among lush gardens and lily ponds with
limestone cliffs in the background. For the ultimate in privacy, guests of
beach villas need not leave the guest room. Each villa is equipped with
its own spa room, with two batik covered massage tables surrounded by
windows, framing views of lush and exotic gardens.

The historic Malay, Chinese, Indian and Arabic influences of the region
come alive in the design of the Resort, from lobby to rooms to restaurants
to spa to private pavilions and secret gardens. Cuisine is similarly
influenced in four distinct restaurants, including Serai - Malay for
lemongrass - featuring specialties and original dishes inspired by
Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Japan, China and India.

Couples seeking a memorable setting for a wedding, honeymoon or romantic
celebration will be enchanted by Langkawi. Families are also welcome with
fun- filled programs for kids and special amenities for the younger set.
Four Seasons Resort Langkawi can also accommodate up to 80 people for
special events, meetings and business retreats.

Adventure seekers will also want to discover Langkawi, because the islands
offer so many options for exploration, exhilarating activity and unique
experiences. The concierge at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi can help plan
boating tours, cave exploration, diving, horseback riding and more. The
island of Langkawi and the surrounding archipelago are home to numerous
parks, nature preserves and bird sanctuaries. There are also opportunities
to be immersed in the traditional culture of the island’s fishing
villages, craft studios, and markets.
