The southern tip of Langkawi has long been lauded as the 'Jewel of Kedah'. Boasting unspoilt white sand beaches and sunshine all year round, this little slice of heaven will soon play host to the jet-set crowd seeking some tropical reprieve when The St. Regis Langkawi opens the doors to its suite-only resort in April this year. 

As we discovered at the opening of The St. Regis Mumbai, luxury is no mere calling card for the brand. It's a quality that impresses itself in more ways than one. Over at The St. Regis Langkawi, butler service underscores the experience from check-in to check-out, playing second fiddle only to the majestic Moorish architecture housing the contemporary handiwork of internationally renowned companies Gensler, GA Design and Bensley Design Studio.

The 89 suites set against a tranquil cove occupy an enviable position that surveys the Andaman sea. Fancy a dip in the pool? You can certainly make a splash in cool waters, but a bigger splash awaits at the swimmable lagoon located right at the doorstep of the property. 

Come evening, settle down at the bar with the Lang Mary — the hotel's tropical twist on the classic Bloody Mary — before heading over to Kayuputri, where Asian inflected haute cuisine awaits at a restaurant that sits over the water.
