Full accommodation information

Hideaway in the lush rainforest or get lost in views of the glistening Andaman Sea whilst staying at this luxury resort on the Malaysian island of Langkawi.

Arriving at Ritz-Carlton Langkawi is a special experience in itself. The hotel has a keen focus on authentic Malay experiences, so each guest enters through The Walkway of Wishes. Here, a unique water feature holds waters from Tasik Dayang Bunting (Lake of the Pregnant Maiden) – said to grant wishes. Each guest is invited to make a wish, which a calligrapher will write on a stone for you to place in the water, and another for you to keep. This is just the beginning of the thoughtful, personalised hospitality you’ll receive during your stay.

Dine at one of three restaurants, from a casual, al fresco lunch or dinner at The Beach Grill to fine Cantonese cuisine and sunset views at Hai Yan. A generous, diverse selection of breakfast choices are served at Langkawi Kitchen, where guests can also enjoy dinners in an informal atmosphere.

Grown-ups will enjoy the chic surrounds of Horizon; a top floor, adult-only bar with incredible sea views, and the perfect place for a sundowner or nightcap. An adult-only pool and overwater spa with hammam mean those who want a quiet, sophisticated time in paradise will find it here.

That said, families are welcomed with open arms at The Ritz-Carlton Langkawi. The resort’s main pool is perfect for splash-about fun, with the Ritz Kids programme will keep youngsters entertained and engaged in their surroundings for hours on end. 

If you're looking for something to keep you occupied, why don't you take part in an authentic soap-making workshop as part of an inspiring learning experience?

Room types here start with Rainforest Deluxe Rooms, and even these are strikingly spacious with separate seating areas, expansive bathrooms clad in ice jade and terraces that take in rainforest or sea vistas. There are also villas in a variety of locations, all featuring private pools. Hidden among the lush jungle, Rainforest Villas are recommended for those who want the ultimate in privacy.
