The Ritz-Carlton Langkawi is set to open to guests this October 2017, but we were already given a preview of this lush beach resort set in Teluk Nibung, a mere 10-minute drive away from the Langkawi International Airport.
Guests making their way to the resort will be pleasantly surprised to find traditional Malay style houses steeped in luxury. Inspired by the kampung houses that you would find in the nearby villages in the island, The Ritz-Carlton Langkawi was designed by Philippe Villeroux from Tropical Area Architects, a Kuala Lumpur-based architectural firm. Amongst the design features with a nod towards the traditional Malay designs include the large windows, gabled roofs, and intricate designs reminiscent of what you would find in a traditional Malay kampung.
You will be spoiled for room choices at The Ritz-Carlton Langkawi with over 75 guest rooms, 15 suites, and 29 villas in the resort with varying views of either the surrounding jungle, or a panoramic view of the sea. Indulge your senses at The Ritz-Carlton Spa as well, with its beautifully interesting design of cocoon-shaped pavilions floating over the sea, resembling the Malay bubu — woven fish traps that have been used by local fishermen for centuries.
If all that we’ve mentioned have yet to entice you to book a suite at The Ritz-Carlton Langkawi for your next staycation, here are five more reasons to convince you.
