Relax and Unwind in Luxury at the Secret Retreats Langkawi Boutique Resorts

The Langkawi boutique resorts that the Secret Retreats travel team have curated promise a strong sense of place and the sort of personal touches that only boutique hotels and resorts can offer. Privately owned and managed, and supported by a professional team all of whom have been recruited from local communities, the sense of staying within a beautiful home is the keynote to a Langkawi boutique hotel stay. Imagine starting your day with yoga and a swim, take a peaceful stroll in the surrounding forest spotting the enigmatic hornbills Langkawi is famed for, a walk around the gardens of your boutique resort or hotel enjoying lush views of the forested mountains or the stunning beach and marine scenery followed by a sensuous massage at the spa. Find time to grab a good book from the library and nestle comfortably at the poolside to bury your nose in that dreamy old book smell for an hour or two. Treat yourself to delicious Malaysian fusion cuisine and perhaps a cheeky night cap at the end of the day. Stay connected with WIFI and digital streaming services too. Whatever you need to do for a little self-care and relaxation we’ve got you covered. At a Secret Retreats Langkawi boutique hotel, a whole magical day can easily go by without you even leaving the property.

For the adventurer: Explore easily from the best location to stay in Langkawi

Our Secret Retreats Langkawi boutique hotel selection assures you the best location to stay in Langkawi every time. Do you see yourself hiking the peaks and forests of Langkawi to enjoy the rich variety of flora and fauna of the archipelago? A trip on the world’s steepest cable car and then top that with a walk on the skybridge marveling at the views of the forested peaks surrounding you. Exploring the 99 islands of the archipelago by boat is a must do too, as the marine scenery above and below the waterline is equally stunning. Just 10 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes from the beach and with a catamaran or motorboat at your disposal, all of the special sights and experiences Langkawi has to offer will be right at your fingertips during a stay at the gorgeous Temple Tree Boutique Resort Langkawi. We suggest starting your trip with a bird’s eye view from the Langkawi cable car, or maybe start at sea level from the beautiful beaches and exploring Langkawi’s mangroves. Of course, as an adventurer, we know you won’t just take our word for it, and with the confidence of having the Secret Retreats travel team at your disposal you can strike out and explore Langkawi, experiencing all the archipelago has to offer the adventurous traveller.

For the curious: Enjoy the historic charm of a small hotel in Langkawi

More than simply a place to stay, the historic charm of a small hotel in Langkawi shares with guests an immersive stay experience. Don’t just visit museums and cultural sights by day. Escape the cookie-cutter experience of large chain hotels and sleep where the history happened. The Temple Tree Boutique Resort showcases 6 of the few preserved historic buildings left in the area. The guest rooms are located within the buildings, and the unique character of each historic building is reflected in the styling of the rooms. Each room has its own unique character, adding to the charm of this holiday stay. You don’t even need to leave your room to get a sense of the local history. However, if you want to, Langkawi also has a local museum as well as cultural tours so you can really immerse yourself. Or if you are more a nature lover than a history buff then the Ambong Ambong Rainforest Retreat and Pool Villas is the perfect choice for you. Immersed within Langkawi’s rainforest and close to the beaches of Tengah and Cenang, the natural beauty and wildlife of Langkawi is literally on your doorstep here. The luxury accommodation includes a choice of suites and private pool villas. And after a day enjoying the forests and beaches head to the Ishan Spa to enjoy relaxation at its most luxurious with a traditional Malay Massage before heading off to dinner.

For the Foodie: entice your appetite with a real boutique Langkawi experience

Creative and delicious dining experiences are very much a part of a real boutique Langkawi experience. The Secret Retreats Langkawi boutique resorts promise quality dining, with dishes crafted from the freshest locally sourced produce and menus showcasing the best local flavours and creative international fusion offerings. While you’re in Langkawi, let ginger, galangal and lemon dance harmoniously across your tongue as you indulge in Langkawi’s own rich but balanced version of Nasi Campur. Spice up your night with some Sambal, or grab a hearty bowl of Laksa for all those seafood lovers out there. All of this can be found conveniently close to our choice of the Langkawi boutique hotels.

For the connector: Find loads of ways to connect with others in the best location to stay in Langkawi

Whether the best location to stay in Langkawi for your holiday is next to the beach, or under shady trees immersed in nature with views to die for, the destination teams of Secret Retreats are constantly searching out the best boutique hotels and resorts to share with our travellers. All Secret Retreats boutique hotels are homely and intimate, where the owners have created spaces that ensure privacy for guests while at the same time offering beautiful spaces that are ideal for sharing with loved ones on a family holiday, or with new friends in your fellow travellers at your hotel.
