Retreat to warm sands and glittering waters

Langkawi is one of Malaysia’s best-known and most popular beach destinations. A stunning archipelago of 99 islands, it's a bucket list destination with plenty to see. 

The largest island, Langkawi features a range of breathtaking seaside resorts, making it a popular choice for anyone who adores beautiful beaches and luxury hotels – and especially couples seeking a romantic escape.

But there is definitively more to Langkawi than a honeymooner’s retreat. The island’s outstanding geological landscapes have earned it the geo-park title by UNESCO – making it the only geo-park in Southeast Asia, and one of only 50 worldwide, and its best attractions make the most of the natural landscapes, expansive parks, and iconic structures that no first-time visitor should skip on their travel itinerary.

Add in a rich history, amazing food, excellent diving opportunities, exciting nightlife and dirt-cheap shopping, and Langkawi is guaranteed to appeal to every traveller no matter what your tastes and budget.
