Malaysia’s upcoming luxury, Langkawi.

Off the coast of northern Malaysia lies the archipelago of Langkawi of 99 islands. The largest, Pulau Langkawi (Langkawi Island) is the most inhabited, and is a tropical escape from Malaysia‘s cosmopolitan living. Locals and travelers frequent this ancient island each year, visiting this quiet hideout, now home to a number of luxury accommodations.

Datai Langkawi
The Datai Langkawi redefined luxury hospitality in Malaysia when it opened in 1993. After a £46m renovation, the revitalized resort enveloped by virgin rain forest has returned with a fresh focus on the remarkable wonders that surround the premise and an ambition to be one of the very best luxury retreats in Asia.

The Andaman

The Andaman is an upscale beach resort set on an island bay off Peninsular Malaysia’s northwest coast. The hotelier has some strong selling points, not least its wildlife, its food offering and the rain-forest amphitheater of its setting.
