A refined, all-suite island resort, edged by a centuries-old rainforest and the Andaman Sea
Tropical sophistication is the vibe at this postcard-perfect resort, all Moorish archways and swaying date palms. While the expansive suites, overwater villas, and courtyards studded with bougainvillea make it palatial in size, the secluded setting—it’s fringed by a lush rainforest and just steps from the Andaman Sea—lends the property an unmistakably idyllic charm. It’s an ideal perch to explore the island’s legendary natural beauty, a succession of caves, dive sites, mangroves, and limestone rock formations. Despite the seemingly far-flung backdrop, the resort is just a 10-minute drive from Langkawi’s buzzy commercial heart, Kuah, which has boasted duty-free status for nearly 30 years. However, the property’s six inventive dining options, 8,600-square-foot spa, and natural saltwater lagoon won’t have you in a rush to leave.
Indulgent flourishes like deep-soaking bathtubs and rainforest showers are offered in each of the 85 all-suite accommodations. Premier Rainforest Suites are flooded with natural light and include a chic nook for balcony dining; Premier Andaman Sea Suites overlook the ocean and are swathed in a soothing palette of green, gold, and sapphire. For a little more solitude, spring for one of the St. Regis Pool Suites, decked out with private plunge pools and shaded patios.
Kayuputi, designed by interior and landscape architect Bill Bensley and inspired by an art collector’s home, is a charming take on overwater dining. Choose from an array of reimagined Southeast Asian dishes or just opt for a sundowner—we recommend the tamarind-spiked Bloody Mary—while lounging on a seaside hammock.
Langkawi is an archipelago of over 100 islands, approximately 20 miles from the northwestern coast of mainland Malaysia. The resort is located on a cove on the southern tip of the archipelago’s largest island and a 30-minute drive from Langkawi International Airport.
How to Get There
Absolutely stunning resort. Amazing villa suites on the water. Beautiful rooms. Super restaurants especially the gourmet restaurant Kayuputi ... East meets West! Stunning setting in a beautiful white wood house on the water . Majestic sunsets. Great cocktails. The spa is a must. Just one minor problem is the beach /sea quality isn’t what we expected. It’s a little muddy and cloudy water . We expected fine white sand and crystal clear waters. The service and friendliness of staff is 20/10!
We were blown away from the first moment we walked through the doors.
A lovely welcome to the hotel from the team, first impressions count, and we were upgraded too!
I don't know where to start really, there's so many good things to stay about this hotel and the fantastic people working here.
We booked a 5 day break through Luxury Escapes, this came with added extras, Massage, nightly cocktails, 1 three course evening meal & return luxury return transfers.
The hotel is first class, everything from the food, surroundings but the most wonderful thing i can say is the staff that work here really do their best to please you and make sure you are happy. From the guys on the beach constantly refilling your iced water to fantastic team in the bar making the fresh cocktails.
We were spoiled right from the start, we both loved our 5 nights here and only wished we had booked for longer.
Breakfast is truly out of this world, fillet steak and eggs for breakfast, this i had several times, there's so much choice and its all of the finest quality.
The only negative i have about this hotel is the beach area, well the water to be exact, It reminds me of walking out into a stream / river bed, underfoot isn't the best and there seems to be some sort of mats under the sand?
If you are thinking of booking this hotel, i would say hurry up and do it before it gets booked up, you'll be kicking yourself if you out.
To the hotel management - the guys that work here really are a credit to you, what ever it is ask of these staff, please don't stop.
Thank you for an amazing 5 days
We stayed at this wonderful resort in September, and it is now the new benchmark to compare all others to for service, ambience and facilities, everything was outstanding.BUT the thing that stood out most to us was the ethos of all staff members that we have a really special experience, and we did. So thankyou to everybody at St Regis and Namaste to you all. Peter and Cheryll
