Located on one of Langkawi’s best beaches, the Four Seasons is a rambling Moorish-inspired resort where the designated UNESCO Geopark melds with a pristine stretch of white-sand beach. Spread across 48 acres of lush tropical gardens with meandering footpaths, the low-rise resort blends indigenous and Arabic design to form a striking, luxurious property where signature Bill Bensley touches abound. Neutral earth tones are interwoven with exotic woods, stones and fabrics. Interiors feature ceiling fans, woven wooden screens, handcrafted hanging mirrors with antique patina finishes, grey slate and burnished-steel light fittings, batik pillows and oversized terrazzo bathtubs built into arched nooks.
Bed and Bath
The resort’s 91 roomy pavilions and villas are located either in the verdant gardens or on the magnificent beach, where you can drift off to sleep to the sound of waves lapping the shore. Blending Asian, Indian and Arabic influences, beach villas feature a private plunge pool as well outdoor showers for those on the lower level. Two-bedroom villas feature a private lap pool, while all villas have gorgeous views of the Andaman Sea and beyond. Located in total seclusion on the beach, the Royal Villa is a vast two-bedroom luxury residence with its own spa rooms and a private swimming pool. Pavilions are set in the resort’s tropical gardens; however, upper level rooms also have sea views. All rooms offer yukata robes and slippers, down duvets, Turkish-hammam-inspired bathrooms and every conceivable mod con.
By day, it’s all about the water. Children run amok in the beachfront family pool or in the free kids club (while mum and dad have some adult time at the “quiet” pool). By late afternoon, guests are often cocooned in private pavilions at the Geo Spa, with its bespoke natural treatments. Three restaurants offer a mix of cuisine, from Italian and traditional Malaysian to fresh local seafood and prime aged steaks, while the Rhu Bar serves Asian tapas and knockout cocktails. Order a martini, kick back on a romantic hanging swing and watch the crimson sun sink into the Andaman Sea.
In the Area
If you can prise yourself off your sun lounge, be sure to book a mangrove safari with Four Seasons resident naturalist Aidi Abdullah. Take the Langkawi Cable Car up 708 meters (2,323 feet) to Mount Machincang for views across the archipelago to southern Thailand. Alternatively, join a snorkeling or diving trip to Pulau Payar, considered one of the most beautiful marine parks in the region with protected coral reefs teeming with vibrant fish.
How to Get There
We stayed 3 nights and would say this is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The bikes provided were fun to get around the property. The gym was well equipped and our room was spacious and grand. Our meals were amazing and great compliments to the chefs. The pool with private cabanas is fantastic. Above all the team made us feel so welcome with friendly welcomes I have never experienced such great warmth anywhere we have been.
The four seasons resort in Langkawi is the most beautiful setting,all the staff were fantastic and always happy and smiling they all wanted you to have a great holiday.
The area is very humid with plenty of vegetation resulting in Mosquitoes👎,as long as you spray your arms and legs before you venture out at night that solves the problem.
Only has two restaurants so not a great choice in quality and variety of food,needs more dining venues.
Both food and drinks fairly expensive,but the sunset at the Rue bar with a G&T would be hard to beat any were.
It was perfect for what we were looking for, a restful weekend away from everything . Really attentive and kind staff.Clean rooms with spacious bathrooms and outdoors shower and jacuzzi. Beautiful gardens. Good food and also clean beach.
I took the jetsky tour with a guide. The guy did not so his job. He never explained anything while going around the island and he was going so fast we could barly catch up to him. The problem he took personal pictures of me and my wife while in swimwear and it turned out he took then with his personal phone to him self. How crepy is that...i complain at check out and they said he deleted the pictures but will never know.
Wow wot a location and genuine helpful staff that go that extra mile to make your stay truely unforgetable. Everything is top drawer. From the concierege, reception, room service, restaurant, and spa nothing is too much trouble. The team that work here are truely exceptional. I would strongly recommend this resort if you want an once in a lifetime experience.
