BAZAAR Spa Awards 2020: Best Honeymoon Destination

The St. Regis Langkawi, Kedah, Malaysia

Heaven On Earth

It’s almost too easy to overlook the splendour of our very own tropical islands for a romantic getaway, having been exposed to an abundance of luxurious exotic resorts across the globe. Barely an hour flight from Kuala Lumpur, little did I anticipate the pleasant surprise of an island just off the coast of northwestern Malaysia had for me. Lo and behold, I found myself in the middle of an exquisitely scenic backdrop and, quite frankly, my little heaven on earth.

Palatial Abode

At The St. Regis Langkawi, you are promised unparalleled relaxation and an immersive pleasurable experience like nowhere before. The Moorish-inspired interior and vast greenery surrounding the property are a delightful sight after escaping the hectic city life. The resort’s butler-serviced villas are nearly faultless, and the compendium of on-site activities or a full pamper session at the Iridium Spa are varied enough to keep guests occupied for days on end.

Watching the sunset by Andaman Sea sets the romantic mood

Ready, Set, Relax

Tucked in a private corner of the resort is the award-winning Iridium Spa. Taking cue from the resort’s lush surrounding, the 800-sqm tranquil oasis offers beauty rituals that aim to heal, restore, and revive the body and mind. While you leave that to the beauty experts, nourish the soul with a culinary experience at L’Orangerie, courtesy of the establishment’s first female executive chef, Mandy Goh.
