Set against Langkawi’s majestic rainforest and on a private lagoon, St. Regis Langkawi will be the first all-suite resort on Malaysia’s 99-island archipelago when it opens on April 6, promising unsurpassed recreation and relaxation in the region.
Why you’ll want to go: Situated in Malaysia’s coveted “Island Jewel of Southeast Asia”, a UNESCO’s World First Geopark, the resort is a celebration of resplendent architecture, elegant interior design, and beautiful landscapes, all of which are paired with the brand’s luxury and top notch services. Its location also makes it convenient to reach from other neighboring countries within the region, making it ideal for when a quick weekend escape is needed.
Rooms: The brainchild of designers and architects such as San Fransisco–based firm Gensler, Bangkok landscape architect Bill Bensley, and UK-based hospitality design specialist G.A. Design, there are 85 luxurious bedrooms in the property, including 20 pool suites with cabanas and patios, all of which come with breathtaking views and the signature St. Regis 24-hour butler service.
Things you can do: With approximately 200 species of birds in the region, a guided birdwatching tour int he morning might just be one of the most rewarding experiences, although if you wish to explore even more, the resort gives you easy access to the dramatic Kilim Geoforest Park, a spellbinding 55 million-year-old-maze of limestone cliffs and mangroves, home to crabs, eagles, and monkeys.
