The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi Debuts as Brand First in Malaysia
September 22, 2017 1:21pm
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. is pleased to announce the debut of The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi, as the oceanfront resort opens today on the Malaysian island. Set in a tranquil private bay, the resort is surrounded by an ancient jungle, while its beachfront is shelter by trees and gently lapped by the Andaman Sea. Designed to reflect the beauty and vibrancy of the nearby traditional villages – which are known as Kampongs – The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi incorporates influences from local culture, creating a uniquely luxurious retreat with an authentic touch.
“We are thrilled to be introducing The Ritz-Carlton to Langkawi. This exciting opening marks our first resort destination in Malaysia, and the second property in the country following The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur,” said Hervé Humler, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.C.C. “With spectacular coastal views, lush rainforests and a blend of cultures, Langkawi offers stunning natural beauty with a fascinating story. The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi provides guests with the opportunity to experience the wonders of this unique island for themselves.”
Spacious interiors in the 70 guest rooms, 15 suites and 29 villas are framed by delicate references to Malay architecture, which can be seen in the intricately-designed features, large windows and gabled roofs. The rooms vertical lines fully integrate the living spaces into the surrounding jungle, while elegant overwater villas offer panoramic views of the sea.
The resort is home to four distinct dining venues, each overlooking the glistening Andaman Sea offering striking views from sunrise to sunset.
Spa rituals at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Langkawi have been created to restore equilibrium within body, mind and soul with an infusion of traditional local elements. Spa Rituals have been inspired by the indigenous healing and beauty ceremonies practiced by local shamans on the Island for thousands of years. The spa is home to five cocoon-shaped pavilions which float above the sea and have been designed to resemble Malay Bubus or the intricately woven fish traps that have used by local fishermen for centuries. Connected by over-water walkways, each pavilion is surrounded by a circular platform with breathtaking ocean views.
