Romance and luxury at The Four Seasons Langkawi

The Four Seasons Langkawi is one of the most beautiful places we've encountered during our travels.

Set amidst the luxurious jungle and bordering a beautiful white sandy beach, this Moroccan style inspired retreat is the ideal place for honeymooners or gay couples looking for a romantic getaway.

The magical scenery combined with the breathtaking architecture, transports you into a completely different world: a private sanctuary where your senses will be fully indulged.

This is the experience of a life time!

#1 A SECLUDED PARADISE SURROUNDED BY NATURAL BEAUTY

The Four Seasons Langkawi is located at the edge of the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park, on the North of the island.

The Geoforest Park is part of a 550 millions years old rock formation, which was declared UNESCO Geopark status since 2007.

The Resort is spread across 48 hectares, with the rainforest and karst formations on one side, and the beautiful beach of Tanjung Rhu on the other.

Walking across one side of The Four Seasons Langkawi to the other will certainly keep you in shape, but if you're in a hurry, they offer bicycles for guests to use, or offer buggies to drive you around the resort.

#2 BEACH VILLAS OVERLOOKING THE ANDAMAN SEA

The beach villas are Moroccan inspired and their interiors, tastefully decorated. Some even have their own private pools and each comes with a large stone bath fitting up to 4 people.

We were particularly impressed by the stunning view of the beach and the Andaman sea from the private balcony.

#3 ACTIVITIES AT THE FOUR SEASONS

Whether you’re interested in relaxation, fitness or nature, The Four Seasons has it all.

The Geo Spa at The Four Seasons Langkawi offers excellent treatments, inspired by the ancient healing energies of the nearby Geopark. They use exclusively Ila essential oils, which are renowned for their dual nurturing and nourishing properties.

We tried the signature massage, Urut Melayu. This is an ancient Urut-inspired technique used by Malays for generations to relieve tension and unify the mind with the body. After 60 minutes of pure bliss, the massage was followed by the ‘Raja Ratu’ (meaning King and Queen) ritual.

The Raja Ratu is a bonding ceremony, where two spirits are unified by the sound of chants, with flower petals decorating the lovers, symbolising their love for each other.

A truly special and unforgettable moment!

The Four Seasons Langkawi offers mangrove tours to their guests, a must if you want to learn more about the wildlife and the ecosystems of the island. They also offer trekking in the nearby karst formations and helicopter rides. Unfortunately, we could not try the helicopter ride, because of Sebastien's fear of flying!

For fitness enthusiasts, The Four Seasons Langkawi has an excellent well equipped gym, one of the best we’ve encountered in our travels.

#4 A SWIMMING POOL JUST FOR ADULTS

The Four Seasons has two outdoor swimming pools, one for children and one for adults.

The adults’ infinity pool is 50m / 164 feet long and offers great views over the tranquil and calm sea. It has 8 private cabanas with attentive bar staff ready to serve you a snack or a delicious cocktail.

#5 A TASTE OF MALAYSIA AT THE IKAN IKAN RESTAURANT

The Four Seasons Langkawi has several restaurants, among them, Ikan Ikan, their signature and most popular one.

The Ikan Ikan serves some of the most delicious Malaysian food we’ve tried, particularly satay and a yummy fried snapper glazed with honey and tamarind sauce. Their deserts are to die for, especially the honeycomb cake with ice cream!

#6 STUNNING SUNSETS BY THE BEACH

The sunsets every evening on the island are spectacular. All the guests and staff gather for a cocktail on the beach to witness this very special moment together.

OUR FAVOURITE TRAVEL TIPS

⭐️ TRAVEL INSURANCE — We recommend you always take out travel insurance before your next vacation. What happens if you suffer from illness, injury, theft or a cancellation? With travel insurance, you can have peace of mind and not worry. We love World Nomads travel insurance and have been using it for years. Their comprehensive coverage is second to none and their online claims process is very user friendly.

⭐️ SAFETY & SECURITY — All travelers can sometimes encounter danger when traveling. CloseCircle is your “virtual body guard” mobile app which provides security alerts and support wherever you are in the world. They have a 24/7 emergency response team monitoring their users who will contact you immediately if the SOS swipe button is activated. Support can include anything from practical advice, to free evacuation from areas with extreme weather or security risks. You can read more about CloseCircle in our article about how to stay safe whilst traveling.

⭐️ ONLINE ANONYMITY — A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a must in many countries: it allows you to surf anonymously and maintain your privacy whilst traveling. You'll particularly need it in countries where dating apps are blocked by the government. We recommend ExpressVPN, a reliable and cost effective service which we used and loved during our travels.

⭐️ HOTELS or APARTMENTS — When we plan a trip, we always look for the best hotel deals. We love Booking.com because not only do they have a comprehensive listing of accommodation options, they also offer the best prices. Added bonus: they provide 24/7 support and free cancellation for most listings.

⭐️ SIGHTSEEING and ADVENTURES — When we travel somewhere, we like to seek out the best experiences, whether it is cooking with locals in Bangkok, hiking on a glacier in Patagonia, or going on a wildlife safari in Sri Lanka. Our favorite place to look is GetYourGuide because they have over 30,000 highly rated activities, a user-friendly booking process with free cancellation and a 24 hour customer support.
