In the tropical wilderness of Langkawi, on the fringe of Southeast Asia’s first UNESCO Global Geopark, an evolved breed of kids’ club is burying its peers in the sandpit. At the Four Seasons Langkawi, the Lutong Club (“lutung” is Sundanese for dusky leaf monkey) has launched their complimentary Kids for All Seasons program for four- to 12-year-olds, which challenges any summer camp for parents-free adventure. Youthful energy is channeled into cultural activities (batik painting, kite making, fishing); nature tours (like a macaque-spotting “swamp-skipper” mangrove cruise); “Junior Masterchef” cooking classes; abseiling and rock climbing; and supervised monkeying around in the club’s undercover playground. For active teens, there’s also archery, bird safari-ing, cycling tours and waterfall bathing.

If that weren’t enough, the resort also offers a Geopark Discovery Centre that provides info on the 550-million-year-old geological wonder of Kilim Karst next door, with science-y displays and several park tours guided by the center’s naturalists. Add to this a wide range of private, family-friendly rooms, suites and pool villas, gourmet in-villa dining, and an immense “four-in-one” beachfront pool with fountains and free fruit popsicles, and you’ve got a bona fide kid heaven that adults can also enjoy. fourseasons.com; doubles from RM2,156.
