Stunning hotel with a lovely balance of traditional and contemporary architecture in a beautifully groomed landscape.

Cardiff, United Kingdom

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in a villa which was perfect, spacious, private with a great pool. All sorts of wonderful wildlife around. There is a small ,clean private beach along with 2 x lovely infinity pools. Great locations for cocktails at sundown. The quality of food in all the restaurants was exceptional, HOWEVER.. the standard of service in the main restaurant, in the Thai restaurant and the Seashore restaurant was nothing short of poor. We must be clear that there are some excellent restaurant staff in this hotel, and Most of the female staff were exceptional. But for whatever reason, we experienced a series of mistaken food orders, side dishes turning up after the meal had been eaten ( although we prompted the waiter 3 x times) , poached eggs taking 45 minutes to arrive at breakfast etc etc, wrong wine, and consistently uncoiled wine ! In all three restaurants the service lacked focus and accuracy , and although staff were apologetic, given our expectations and the overall cost we were not impressed at all.

Great hospitality, wonderful resort

Singapore, Singapore

Ritz never disappoints. Pros: Some of the finest hospitality teams I have seen. Great amazing staff, who make you feel comfortable and pampered. Kudos!! Always there to help buggy service to take you round the resort, they are surprisingly very fast to reach your location. Great ocean and rainforest views, the location is just wow. The infinity swimming pool and the Horizon restaurant offer some of the finest sunset views and dinner locations in Langkawi. My personal favourite, the suite rooms have movable/ sliding walls/doors, by which you can create your spaces (some may not like it but I love such designs) Cons: The bathroom was not sparkling clean, especially the floor and bathtub. The lighting is a bit dull in the corridors and some of the places have uneven surface making it a bit risky especially for older people.
