Four Seasons Resort
On the north-western coast of Malaysia, facing the Andaman Sea is the archipelago of Langkawi. The Four Seasons Resort is located in a remote corner spread out amid the forest and beach, close to the 550-million-year-old rock formations, precipitous rainforest and deserted islands. Just minutes by boat from the world-renowned mangroves of the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park, the resort combines artful design and all-pervading serenity with a wholesome connection with nature.
The Resort’s traditional Malay kampong-design weaves through acres of beachfront gardens dotted with al fresco restaurants, palms and lotus ponds. An endless sense of space encourages clarity and calm. UNESCO-protected mangroves showcase labyrinthine adventures between land and sea, supported by the on-site Geopark Discovery Centre, while the Geo Spa draws on the ancient healing energies of the surrounding nature.
Stay The resort has 91 villas and pavilions located on beachfront gardens, steps from sea and nearby mountains. The two-storey pavilions are located around a private beach alcove where ground floor rooms offer direct access to the beach while upper floor rooms provide privacy and sea view.
Beach Villas are perfect for those seeking a perfect vantage point and come with a plunge pool, outdoor Jacuzzi. Those travelling with children can request for family villa that come with a junior twin bedroom or opt for the more spacious (590sqm) two-bedroom villa. There is also a two-bedroom residence or Royal Villa – arranged village-style across three pavilions and comes with complimentary Butler Service.
Dine The resort has three restaurants and a bar. The Ikan Ikan is the main signature restaurant. Built in the style of a traditional Malaysian home, its multi award-winning food can be enjoyed in a relaxed beachfront pavilion or al fresco dining terrace. Kelapa Grill, the all day beachside restaurant serves Asian stir-fries and wood-fired pizzas by day; fresh local seafood and prime aged steaks, flamed-grilled to perfection by night.
The Serai serves Mediterranean menu with fresh ingredients, delicately balanced with aromatic herbs and spices. Dine outside on a roofed terrace or on oceanfront al fresco patio. Rhu Bar is the ultimate Middle East inspired island lounge – atmospheric wooden screens, cushion-strewn wicker chairs, Turkish water pipes, hanging swings – just perfect for evening cocktails, try the Pomegranate Mojitos!
Relax The Geo Spa has four treatment collections based on four natural energies; Earth, Water, Light and Air. The Earth treatments combine the hidden energies of crystals, rocks and mud. The Water treatments are focused on kidney work to improve energy flow within the body. The Light treatments explore light’s many guises and benefits, bringing energy and illumination to body, mind and spirit. And the Air treatments, honour the healing stillness that pervades when man, nature, body and mind, are in perfect balance.
You can also undertake the ‘Elemental Balance’ experience, a three-part treatment programme comprising a personalised diagnosis, specialised body treatment and energetically balanced meal. Alternatively, take advantage of expert instructors and dedicated Yoga Pavilion. There are two pools. The adult pool is quiet and nice, but it’s the family pool that is really spectacular with little waterfalls, statues etc.
Explore The Geoforest Park is home to one of the most diverse tropical ecosystems on the planet. During an exclusive excursion, you’ll venture by boat with a naturalist into this nature preserve where you will have close encounters with exotic animals and Malaysia’s most ancient geological formations. You will discover a maze of 550-million-year-old cliffs and tangled mangroves, home to some of the world’s most intriguing creatures. Traverse little-known tributaries in search of eagles, monkeys, otters, walking fish, monitor lizards and sleeping vipers.
Malaysia Airlines operates to major International airports worldwide and connects from KL and from Singapore to Langkawi, Penang and Medan. The budget carrier Air Asia connects from KL to all major Malaysian and Indonesian airports, including Langkawi and Penang, plus major southeast Asian airports. From the UK, you can fly Malaysia Airlines from London Heathrow and Air Asia from London Stanstead.
Public transport in Malaysia is reliable and inexpensive, particularly in Peninsular Malaysia. Budget flights are a great option for hopping around the region, especially given that no ferries connect Peninsular and east Malaysia. Sabah and Sarawak have their own travel peculiarities – in Sarawak, for instance, you’re reliant on boats, and occasionally planes, for some long-distance travel.

Fly on Sky Bridge Among all the things to do in Langkawi, meeting the skies is the most exciting one. You can now reach the place where you can look at the horizons – where land and sky meet. Two main attractions developed are the 20-minute Langkawi Cable Car ride that offers a journey into the skies and Langkawi Sky Bridge, the longest suspension bridge that offers an exhilarating (and sometimes terrifying) view of the verdant valleys and surrounding Langkawi. Set 700 metres above sea level, it is only accessible via the final station of the Langkawi Cable Car ride.
Nature in Geopark Langkawi and nature are interconnected and you will find natural beauty everywhere you go in Langkawi. Visit UNESCO’s World Geopark and absorb the 550 million years of geological history. Take a tour of Mangrove Wetlands and learn about the unique ecosystem not found anywhere else on the planet.
Trek to Gunung Raya Known as the highest mountain in Langkawi, Gunung Raya peaks at 881 metres in height and its dense forest reserve houses wildlife such as leaf monkeys, flying foxes, macaque monkeys, squirrels, mountain hawk eagles, white bellied sea eagles and great hornbills. Great for nature enthusiasts, the mountain is also a popular destination for jungle trekking. If you’re not an experienced hiker, joining a nature tour is highly advisable. The best time to trek Gunung Raya is between the months of November and March, when skies are relatively clear with little or no rainfall.
Adventures Take a half day (4 hours) jetski to explore the archipelago of Langkawi. The ride is breathtaking, bizarre rock formations paired with white beaches. Price will include exploring the islands, jungle trekking and an opportunity to swim in a fresh water lake. Alternatively, visit the newly opened Skitrex adventure park, where you can climb, swing, crawl or glide through the jungle. It's a lot of fun and excitement, but also physically challenging but you will certainly enjoy going zipline downhill.
Snorkelling Pulau Payar Marine Park is a popular site for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts keen on exploring Langkawi’s undersea action. Just 30km south of the main island, it is about 45 minutes away from the Kuah jetty point and you can take either a catamaran or a speedboat to get here. Comprising four islands this marine park is spread over two nautical miles. None of these islands are inhabited and are strictly regulated by the Fisheries Department of Kedah to maintain their pristine condition.
When to go The rainy season on the west coast of Peninsula Malaysia typically comes between April and October but often the rains don't really arrive until June or July. Even during the monsoon, the rains tend to come in sharp bursts, usually during the afternoon, with sunshine for the rest of the day. Penang, however, does get heavy rains in September and October.
The east coast monsoon, which falls between mid-November and February, is more marked, churning up the seas and making some of the island destinations inaccessible. These rains also affect the interior of Peninsula Malaysia, and the whole of Malaysian Borneo.
