Luxury Hotel to Watch: St Regis Langkawi

In Travel News by The H4C Team

Hidden in an idyllic cove along Langkawi’s scenic beaches is the newest addition to the luxury St Regis family, St Regis Langkawi. Opening in April 2016, it’s got all the hallmarks of St Regis opulence – with a little bit of Malaysian splendour to make your romantic holiday experience one to truly remember.

The hotel boasts 85 suites and four water villas, overlooking the majestic Straits of Malacca; getting there is easy, as it’s only a 20 minute drive from Langkawi International Airport. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by your personal butler – trained in the English service and offering around-the-clock services to anticipate your every need. 

The St Regis Langkawi aims to be a pinnacle of luxury in the region, with amenities aplenty to satisfy whatever longings you might have.

Perhaps it’s time spent poolside? The St Regis Langkawi has the largest swimmable lagoon on the island, in addition to a swimming pool. 

Or maybe, you’d rather spend time relaxing in a spa, feeling your worries drift away. The Iridium Spa is an exclusive space for guests, offering a range of relaxing wellbeing treatments and specialty massages to soothe your weary soul.

Perhaps you’re the fitness lover, who sees time away as an excuse to exercise in new surrounds. The St Regis Langkawi boasts an exclusive gym, ready for your use – or you can get the heart rate up with a run around the impeccable grounds. 

Foodies will also be satisfied with the smorgasbord on offer: in keeping with the true St Regis spirit, the resort will have five food and beverage venues where you can whet your gourmand’s appetite. Pop into the signature bar to sample the St Regis’ famed Bloody Mary cocktail, born at the St Regis New York in the early 1900s. You can even try the St Regis Langkawi’s local version of the tipple, a tradition honoured by every St Regis around the world.

The powers that be know this is a game changer for the luxury travel scene in Langkawi, cementing the island locale as an international holiday destination. “Langkawi is emerging as a world-class luxury destination,” says Tan Sri Peter Sondakh, chairman of Rajawali Group. “It’s among the world’s best islands, and we feel that it’s a great opportunity to introduce the St Regis brand to worldly, well-heeled travellers.”
