Langkawi holds multiple very luxurious 5-star resorts which are located throughout the island. Often you will find the resorts in the more remote areas, with a beautiful location and private beach. The Westin one of these luxurious resorts; it is a truly beautiful resort. The resort is close to Kuah, but still located at a remote part of the island.
We stayed at the resort for a couple of days, and were surprised by the amazing atmosphere, and the enormous luxury. The rooms were beautiful, the food was delicious and everything was taken care of in a great manner. Staff was very pleasant and showed high service standards. There is a wonderful spa as well, but you can also undergo multiple watersport activities (like kayaking and sailing) along the private beach.
The rooms had plenty of space and were well furnished. There was a fabulous shower, with a glass window between the bathroom and the bedroom. Luckily, there is a lace curtain, making it useful if you’re with friends, acquaintances or colleagues as well. The rooms come with a minibar, air-conditioning and if you’re close enough to the public areas you can pick up on the free Wi-Fi signal.
The pool is magnificent, with plenty of lounge beds and chairs. The restaurant on the beach has an extended lunch menu, with several delicious dishes. In the evening hours this is the ideal place for a drink or perhaps a small snack.
Breakfast was one of the largest we have had during our time in Malaysia. Everything was of high quality and freshly prepared each morning. The coffee was very good, something we like to pay attention to, and even the service was top notch. The Westin is quite popular among business people, which results in you having breakfast on your own if you don’t wake up very early. Most of the hotel guests have their breakfast very early, so they can immediately start their busy days.
It’s a 10-15 minute walk towards Jetty Point, Lagenda Park, Eagle Square and the stores at the Langkawi Fair. You can rent a car or moped at Jetty Point, which you can park on the resort’s ground. The Westin itself rents out exclusive cars, like a BMW or Mini Cooper to cruise over the island. Langkawi is best explored with a rental car or moped, and The Westin is a perfect (luxurious) place to stay.
