Four Seasons Resort Langkawi

Aug 11, 2009

Set on Tanjung Rhu, one of the island’s best beaches, Four Seasons Resort Langkawi combines indigenous architecture with gracious service in a resort experience unmatched in Malaysia.

Immersed in the calming ambience of a tropical hideaway, the 90 guest villas and pavilions nestle amid the resort’s lushly landscaped gardens or enjoy beachfront settings within the sound of waves. The spacious accommodations blend Asian, Indian and Arabic influences to create a uniquely Malaysian milieu, with rich tropical woods and heavily grained Spanish marble. Features include timber floors, soaring ceilings, open-air verandas and contemporary comfort.

Complete technological ease is available in every pavilion and villa, with high-speed Internet access, sound systems, satellite televisions, an iPod docking station, and CD and DVD players, while thoughtful personal touches include yukata robes and slippers. Indoor bathrooms feature Moorish and Malay artefacts. All lower pavilions and some villas offer secluded outdoor terrazzo soaking tubs for two and showers that evoke the feeling of a gentle tropical rainfall.
