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
The most glorious stay in paradise... I don’t even know where to start.
From the moment we stepped out into arrivals at the airport we were greeted by the most incredible staff and we quickly slipped away into a luxurious dream.
The resort is beautiful, with no stone left unturned in providing pure luxury and comfort. The pool, beach, cabanas and mini golf course were all outstanding. The day spa is also fantastic. We booked a VIP Andaman Sea room and arrived to a beautiful setup for our anniversary. I highly recommend this room (which is really more of a suite - so spacious!). Every need is anticipated and catered to.
The food... I’d like to give a huge thank you to Anillan - he is a true asset to the dining at the resort and our stay would not have been the same without him. He somehow manages to form a personal connection with every guest and he adds so much value to your experiences. We had amazing daily breakfasts at L’Orangerie (the same could not be said for the dinner we had there - the only bad meal of our trip sadly). Pantai Grill and in room dining are both excellent and affordable options also. Kayu Puti is in a class of its own. You MUST experience a sunset cocktail on the hammocks, and indulge in a beautiful dinner - it is a truly unparalleled experience. Thank you to Wulan, an intern at Kayu Puti, whose presence made our daily trips to the over water restaurant so much more enjoyable. This girl is an asset and I hope she is offered a permanent role at St Regis after finishing her course.
The St Regis Bar is like stepping into another world. I highly recommend heading here after dinner for tasteful cocktails, champagne or hanging out in Decanter (the wine room). Irma is a sensational addition to this establishment, and I cannot thank her enough for always personalising our experience and making us feel so well looked after.
I could go on forever, but all you need to know is that this resort is like no other and you must stay there. We fell head over heels in love with St Regis Langkawi and will certainly return again. Trust me, your expectations will be exceeded at every turn.
If you are looking to relax and unwind then this is the perfect place. From the minute we were picked up in the luxurious car our 5 star treatment began. We were travelling using a Luxury Escape deal and that is exactly what we experienced! Our room was upgraded, French champagne for breakfast and al la carte or buffet is on offer each morning at La Orangerie. Included in Our deal was a cocktail for two at any bar, so we could watch the sunset at the beach, at Katu Puti or after dinner indoors at St Regis bar. The Luxury escape deal has a separate menu and cocktail list which had a great range and is handled discreetly with utmost respect.
We do like to eat and venture beyond the hotel at times, So a short walk to the Westin allowed us to book back to St Regis. We also walked a short distance past Westin to Charlie’s Bar At Yacht Club, Fishermans wharf and enjoyed great meals and drinks -Of which beef rendang was a favourite of ours. These meals and drinks were much cheaper as would be expected.
We love to go home with our laundry done so a short Grab car ride to Kuah laundry was in order, although if you prefer hotel service that’s available too.
It’s very hard to pick out staff who were exceptional- as they all are fabulous. However April, on reception, was a stand out from start to finish. She was patient with our multiple questions and arranged a late check out for us so we could spend our last day soaking up the sun and relaxing by the pool. Kris at the pool
Bar always had a smile on her face and greeted us daily with ice cold water.
We were completely happy with our luxury escape deal and everything about the resort.
This is the most amazing place on earth, it’s so exclusive, secluded & intimate without being pretentious at all. The food is extremely over priced however everything else is totally worth the visit and stay, you will he treated like gods from the moment you walk in. It’s one of my favourite places on Asia
An amazing resort. Luxurious, tentative staff and great food.
I thoroughly recommend the ocean view rooms. Waking up to see the beautiful island sea views was incredible. Not to mention the breathtaking sunsets
The St Regis Langkawi has to be one of the best hotel/resort I have ever visited and I am somewhat a frequent traveller and only staying at the top hotels and resorts. From the very beginning the way how the staff greeted us and dealt with our luggage was very pleasant. We arrived earlier than normal check in time, but they managed to have our sunset villa ready with all the all the extra condiments. The resort in itself is very grand and beautiful and the food and beverages served in all the hotel restaurants and bars are sublime. What tops it off for this hotel though, is it's unique Butler Service, they are so attentive and attend to all your requirements with great efficiency and attention to detail. It is so refreshing to come back to your room, with little notes addressed to you from your butler assigned to you for that day, just as simple as have a nice day. Just want to thank the team at St Regis Langkawi once again. We will be visiting shortly again god willing!!
