Four Seasons Resort Langkawi

    Guests of the Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, which opened along a mile-long private beach on Langkawi’s northern cape in 2005, can search for the island’s native monkeys and raptors on a guided mangrove tour with a staff naturalist. The villas and pavilions that compose the resort are scattered throughout 48 acres of rain forest, limestone cliffs, and beach in the manner of a kampong, or Malay village. Accommodations Ninety-one units ranging from spacious to massive: deluxe pavilion suites; 2,370-square-foot beach villas; 6,350-square-foot, two-bedroom villas; and the Royal Villa, a 15,000-square-foot home. Recreation Sailing, diving, and rain forest tours can be arranged. Dining The resort has three restaurants and a sunset bar. Worthy Diversion View some of Langkawi’s nearly 200 avian species—including its namesake sea eagles—during a guided bird-watching tour with the resort’s staff naturalist. Rates From $495 to $5,500.
