In Search Of Tranquility At The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa

Escape from the over-stimulated state of modern day life by experiencing this hidden gem that resides in the jewel of Kedah.

One should never underestimate the healing powers of being next to the sea. As many thalassophiles would agree, the combination of the sun, sand and sea is one the simplest forms of therapy. These increasingly rare moments of solitude are certainly plentiful should one ever find themselves staying at The Westin Resort & Spa. Opened since 1995 and revamped in 2006, this tropical sanctuary has long served as a haven for weary urbanites looking to get away the chaos of the big city. Nestled within the peaceful confines of an ancient forest, the resort which sits on the southeastern tip of Langkawi is blessed with picturesque views of the Straits of Malacca.
