the malaysian archipelago

This luscious land off the coast of the Malaysian mainland is still one of the lesser-visited beach idylls of the world. We’re not saying it’s a hidden gem, but how many people do you know who have been to Langkawi? There’s plenty to do here but it’s likely that you’ll twin this trip with a visit to the capital, Kuala Lumpur – worth exploring for a few days on route to this piece of paradise.

From the hustle and bustle of Pantai Cenang or the quiet romance of many of the island’s nestled beaches, there’s something for every type of traveller. Saunter through the paddy fields of the countryside or enjoy a relaxing swim at the Telaga Tujuh waterfalls – the place so magical it’s locally known as “the home of the fairies”. Offering a brilliant blend of nature, adventure and luxury resorts, a stay on Langkawi does not disappoint. Perhaps you’ll choose to split your time between parts of the island, or make a home-away-from-home and take daily adventures; the choice from where you get to experience a truly radiant sunset is yours and our travel experts are here to help.
