The Westin Langkawi Resort and Spa

Sep 4, 2011

Unbridled, gorgeous vistas define The Westin Langkawi, an elegant, low-rise resort perched on a bay fringed with white sand, a location that overlooks forest-clad isles jutting out of the Andaman Sea. The 222 guest rooms, suites and villas boast lofty ceilings and generous layouts, with soothing beige-and-white interiors offset by teakwood furnishings and plush bedding. The serene property is also home to four pools—the Infinity Pool has the most striking view—a beachfront spa and a superb choice of four eateries. Guests may be tempted to never leave the resort, but a trek to the picturesque Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls is highly recommended.
