The Four Seasons Langkawi is the ultimate Asian beach getaway, while retaining the flawless Four Seasons style and service it has its own themes and influences. The rooms are spacious and thoughtfully designed, the restaurants each compliment the other well by serving a variety of cuisines and the facilities on offer need to be made the most of.

If you have the budget and like the Four Seasons style, then you must definitely stay here if you want to come to Langkawi. It ticks the boxes for everything stunning location, flawless service, delicious food and luxurious rooms. You really wont want to leave and when you do you will find yourself booking a stay here again! The great thing is if you are on your honeymoon or with a family, you can enjoy different aspects of the resort which are adult only or particularly focused on children. The north wing is more for adults, whereas the south wing is aimed for children with a childrens pool and the kids club nearby as well as the interconnecting rooms and Family Beach Houses. Lunch at Kalapa Grill on the beach is brilliant and a spa treatment or two is a must as the therapists really personalise your treatment and you come out feeling wonderful, I had one before the long flight home which was a relaxing way to end my stay.

Langkawis Kilim Karst Geoforest Park is home to one of the most diverse tropical ecosystems on the planet but is also home to Four Seasons Langkawi.
Having fallen head over heals for Four Seasons Koh Samui, I was extremely interested and excited about staying here. Their Melaleuca Pavilions are even more stunning that I had imagined, with endless ceiling height, a large Jacuzzi bath tub and a peaceful varanda . The architecture and grounds are out of this world, you feel like you are stepping into a palace. Their adult pool has to be one of the most relaxing places to sunbath, their blue umbrellas and turquoise towels, simply adds to this idyllic situation. If you are feeling energetic, I would recommend swimming the entire 100 metre length of it. With a kids club and a whole reel of activities on offer, you wont find yourself twitching!

Known to be one of the most luxurious properties on the island, the Four Seasons on Langkawi is a luxury haven set on a gorgeous stretch of beach overlooking the Andaman Sea. Like all Four Seasons, this retreat offers,

The Four Seasons is located on the northern tip of Langkawi, with stunning views out to the little islands dotted amongst the emerald green waters. The Pavilions and Villas are set amidst acres of flat, landscaped gardens, making access easy for everyone - a great way to get around is on the bikes that are provided for guests. The Lower Melaleuca Pavilions are a great option for families, as they interconnect through the bathrooms, however if budget permits, I would highly recommend going for a Beach Villa - the views are just amazing and they are huge! There is a great choice of restaurants, from Serai, for breakfast to the delicious Malay food at Ikan Ikan and the relaxed vibe at Kelapa Grill, you are spoilt for choice. The Rhu Bar is a great spot for a cocktail at sunset! There are also 2 pools at the property, one adult only and one family pool with private corners where you can all relax together in the sunshine. The complimentary kids club is also a real draw, the plenty of activities to keep the little ones occupied whilst you enjoy the spa, the beach or one of the many other activities on offer here.
