Indulgent Beach Resort

Set in a tranquil private bay on expansive grounds overgrown with a 10-million-year old rainforest, this new luxury resort enjoys a setting so unique, you have to experience it first-hand to truly grasp the incredibly diverse beauty of the place.

Built in harmony with the surrounding nature and designed in a contemporary style with intricate details inspired by local architecture, the resort is private and sophisticated with a welcoming ambiance. Whilst you may feel remote, you are only ten minutes away from the local town, cable car, zip wire, and colorful night markets.

Go on a culinary journey through the resorts four distinct dining venues. Enjoy western fare at The Beach Grill, Chinese seafood at Hai Yan, local cuisine in the Langkawi kitchen and delicious cocktails at the adults-only Horizon sunset bar.

As you would expect from a Ritz Carlton property – service and comfort are both exemplary, and you will want for nothing during your visit, except maybe to stay a little longer.

  • Exceptional dining options
  • Boutique feel

All that we hoped it would be

York, United Kingdom

Following an active few days in brilliant Singapore, we booked this hotel for some luxurious relaxation. We were not disappointed. We stayed in a 'Grand Ocean Front Villa' with pool and we totally enjoyed the huge rooms, the fantastic view over the sea and complete privacy. It all meant we didn't see as much of the Island as we had planned, preferring not to stray too far from our temporary, captivating home. The setting of the hotel is just stunning, nestled between the rainforest and the sea and with a lovely beach. Happening upon various species of wildlife (the sea otters were the best) keeps things interesting. The restaurants were all good though we gravitated towards the Beach Grill for the location and their slightly more Western menu. Special mention also to the Horizon bar and the 'sunset hour' - a really special place to enjoy a drink. The only downside to our stay - and pretty insignificant to the overall experience - was breakfast. 4 options for dinner becomes 1 option for breakfast so it was all bit crowded, frenetic and 'urgent'. It was not helped by (how shall we put this?) some of the less considerate behaviour of some (not all) of the Chinese guests. Slightly related, and it's not just an issue for the Ritz-Carlton, is when will there start to be some sort of standard or restriction set for the use of mobile 'phones and tablets in public dining areas ? But breakfast didn't detract from the overall experience of the hotel - it is a great place and fully deserving of it's 'excellent' grading. The staff were all brilliant - warm, well-meaning and plenty of them. A special mention for Nairin, a young, temporary member of staff who typified the smiling, eager to please quality of service.

An Ultimate Family Paradise In Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Secluded beach nestled in lush green jungle at Pantai Kok, Ritz Carlton Langkawi is a relaxed haven of peace, luxury and unspoiled natural paradise. Our room was the spacious Rainforest Deluxe room, fitted with two double queens and an expansive living area with couch and comfortable seats. Each room offers an oversized balcony with a daybed and a beautiful sea view that promises a beautiful day ahead during our three nights stay. Need to be connected? Fret not, as Wi-Fi is super fast all around the resort. Activities for all ages are aplenty; whether it's onsite or outdoors. Don't miss checking out the beach; the calm and clear waters makes you want to stay under water at all times. However, beware of sea urchins and jelly fish if you plan to take a dip during high tide. And how can one forget the infinity pools at the Horizon (adults only) and the Beach Grill; both are simply incredible! The dining experience at the Ritz Carlton is an experience one should not miss; be it for breakfast at the Langkawi Kitchen, where it offers scrumptious array of local and western cuisine or just the Nasi Goreng with sambal ikan bilis from Room Service where the sambal is to die for! I must say that the service at the resort was truly top notch; the staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs even at odd hours! The Ritz Carlton is definitely the ultimate family paradise and I would definitely come back with my family for a repeat of the beautiful experience.
