Selection of Luxury Beach Resorts in Langkawi
I had the honour to celebrate my birthday at the beautiful 6 Star St Regis Langkawi Malaysia Resort, only newly opened in May 2016. The hotel is pristine, stunningly beautiful and remotely located away from a lot of other Langkawi hotels and motels situated at the town areas like Kuah Town and Pantai Cenang.

Tour of the stunning of St Regis Langkawi Malaysia
The rainforest malaysia hotel has a beautiful seashell/ coral theme, from the chandeliers to the wallpapers to the carpets in every area. We utterly loved the dining areas around the property and our very beautiful rooms with its own lounge/ dip pools. Perfect set up and plenty of space for an all girls birthday celebration and getaway.

Laze and relax all day long
We spend half our days in our suite pools, getting out of the pools, eat, into the public pools, grab a drink, out of the pool again. It was really the most relaxing type of trip to get a good tan, chill by the Jacuzzi and catch up with your loved ones about their lives. The resort host a wide array of guests from couples to small families to small groups of friends.

Whats Malaysia without good food?
One of the highlights of this stay is the lovely food/ snacks we had both in the hotel and outside. We had a good mix between Malaysian-Thai fusion food, street food, Chinese seafood and more.
One of the must trys: Sipping cocktails to the view of the sunset at Kayiputi restaurant. Laze in the overwater hammocks and feel the gentle breeze all around. Seriously the best experience you can get.
Local food options around Langkawi Island
For some of our meals. we also headed out to the nearby towns 10-20 minutes away from the hotel – like Kuah Town and Pantai Cenang to catch a bit of the night markets and local malaysian-thai seafood. It was lots of fun and taxi-ing around in Langkawi is quite affordable at USD$3-4 for 10minutes.
In conclusion, the little 3 day trip up to Langkawi Island just for an all girls birthday celebration proves to be one of the nicest short trips one can do over the weekend. You can get cheap affordable budget/ full freight flights to Langkawi from Bangkok/ Kuala Lumpur and Singapore daily. I used Skyscanner to book my flights, such ease of use to do comparisons without any fuss.
So for those looking for a short weekend trip, celebrate a special occasion or bring your family, here’s a destination worth considering.
