There are plenty of dining choices. The Langkawi Kitchen serves traditional Malay, Chinese and Indian cuisine in a relaxed setting. Hai Yan is perched on the tip of the resort, providing panoramic views of the sea and serving delicious Chinese seafood. The design of the Beach Bar & Grill is intended to resemble the traditional Malaysian Bubu fish traps, therefore it is perhaps unsurprising that the menu focuses on fresh seafood, as well as Western favorites. Horizon is the resort's adults-only open air lounge, offering an intimate space to enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail and light Thai bites.
Whilst it is possible to simply relax either on the beach or by one of the resort's beautiful pools, or indulge in a treatment at the overwater spa, there is also plenty to keep everyone entertained should you wish.

The Ritz Carlton Langkawi is the latest impressive hotel on the island of Langkawi and came with a lot of expectations. It exceed every one and I was really impressed with everything from the flawless personal service to the modern chic bedrooms which were thoughtfully designed and everything in between. The resort is large but the amount of space has allowed an extensive array of facilities to be built to suit all, whether its the beautiful spa, great kids club, or gorgeous Horizon Bar which is a must for evening sunset cocktails. A great new addition to the island!
