Five Star Langkawi hotels

Most popular areas in Langkawi for 5-star hotels

Langkawi, an archipelago of tropical palm-studded and beach-fringed isles in the shimmering Andaman Sea, sings with luxurious 5-star getaways. On the main Langkawi Island, there’s a trio of high-class hotel hotspots – the luxury resorts to the rainforest-blanketed northwest, the 5-star havens speckled on the northeast’s sandy coast, and the modern getaways in the buzzing bar and restaurant-rich main town of Kuah. For total travel convenience, there are a couple of ritzy hotels near the main island’s airport, too.

Top 5-star hotels in Langkawi

The Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort Langkawi is a lush waterfront haven, offering huge and breezy guestrooms with enormous ensuite bathrooms, instant beachfront access, a full-service spa, and multiple outdoor pools fringed by indulgent poolside bars. The Danna Langkawi, meanwhile, offers a private beach of glinting golden sands, a pampering full-service spa, and a palm-enclosed outdoor swimming pool. The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa is another heavenly and exclusive tranquil getaway, championing a limo/town car service, full-service spas, and 4 outdoor pools.

Where to find the best restaurants in Langkawi

Most of Langkawi’s finest restaurants are hosted by the island’s exclusive resorts – these in-house restaurants readily welcome stop-by diners. Their culinary delights range from delicate seafood dishes – infused with Malay spices – to European-inspired haute cuisine. Telaga Harbor Park is a top spot for luxury restaurants – beside the aquamarine waters of this crescent bay you’ll find fine Italian and al-fresco Japanese dining. The Tengah Beach area, which runs like a white-gold thread beside the shimmering sea, offers elegant beachfront seafood restaurants.

The most popular things to do in Langkawi

One of Langkawi’s top sights is the Langkawi Cable Car – also known as the SkyCab. The entry station is based north of the glistening Telaga Harbor, near the Oriental Village – an ensemble of purpose-built buildings showcasing traditional Malaysian architecture and selling Malaysian handicrafts. After ambling around the village, hop in the SkyCab and relax as you’re carried to the peak of Gunung Machinchang mountain, with chimney-shaped rock formations and dense jungle all around. At the summit, discover the Langkawi Sky Bridge, a long boomerang-shaped bridge boasting panoramic views of the mountains, waterfalls, and ocean. You can’t visit Langkawi without seeing its sugary-sand beaches – the southern Pantai Cenang is a developed beach fronted by glitzy restaurants, while bayside Pantai Kok offers a natural surrounding of limestone caves and jungle-clad outcrops.

Best ways to get around Langkawi

Langkawi doesn’t offer much in the way of public transport, but you’ll be more than taken care of at your luxury 5-star retreat – almost all of the upscale Langkawi hotels provide a limo/town car service, allowing you to cruise around the island in style. There are plenty of taxicabs in and around Langkawi, too – these are best booked in advance from your hotel. For a fun and flexible means of Langkawi transport, hire a rental scooter and whizz around the island.
