Vaccinated travelers from Singapore will be able to travel without quarantine to Malaysia from November 29, 2021 through the VTL program. So, are you ready to say goodbye to the pandemic-induced lockdown and enjoy a luxury ride to Langkawi’s most opulent pool villas?
For the well-heeled, you might want to consider booking luxury villas with swimming pools in Langkawi just for you and your loved ones at these magnificent resorts.
Below are the 6 best luxury resorts in Langkawi to book:
The Datai Langkawi
Avoid the crazy crowds and settle into ultra-luxurious villas located at the pristine northwestern tip of Langkawi, where each unit is thoughtfully appointed.
Covered in tall trees – a habitat for local wildlife – the Rainforest Pool Villa offers complete privacy thanks to its lush surroundings. Covering an area of 175 square meters, this 10 m villa equipped with a swimming pool houses an extended terrace and an outdoor living space to allow you to fully immerse yourself in the rainforest while being close to splendid amenities – perfect for couples on their honeymoon.
Get even closer to the Andaman Sea with a stay at The Datai Langkawi’s Beach Villa, which overlooks the breathtaking bay teeming with ocean creatures. Available in one or two bedroom configurations, the villa benefits from 24-hour butler service. Both are lavished with a private swimming pool.
The Ritz Carlton, Langkawi
Bordered by the Andaman Sea and a 10 million year old rainforest, the Ritz-Carlton Langkawi is the best place to stay if you want to invite the great outdoors into your cocoon of luxury. Villa Mutiara, which spans 650 square meters, offers complete privacy, with panoramic ocean views and jungle views. Sequestered between two coves, this three bedroom villa is perfect for a family. Besides a private beach, the villa also offers a spacious dining area and two swimming pools.
The second most spacious villa in the resort, Villa Kenari, measures approximately 465 square meters where each bedroom (there are two of them) enjoys stunning frontal sea views and a rear facing the jungle. Don’t like sharing your pool with other customers? You won’t have to do this as the villa has its own private 25m long swimming pool overlooking the bay.
Your extraordinary experience is complete with your own private butler and a chauffeured Rolls-Royce from Langkawi International Airport.
The St. Regis Langkawi
Experience signature St. Regis hospitality at the resort’s Sunset Royal Villa. As lavishly decorated as one might expect, this overwater villa houses four bedrooms with unparalleled views of the Andaman Sea. You can watch the sunset while lounging in a private swimming pool. With an area of 700 square meters, there is plenty of space for everyone. Call for an organized dining experience in the villa, or just spend time in the glass paneled living room doing absolutely nothing.
The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa
Good enough for an extended family (yes, even in-laws), the five-bedroom pool villa at the Westin is a decadent experience. With two lounges on two levels, the villa is equipped with its own grand piano – perfect for wowing anyone with the musical skills you honed during lockdown). Three bedrooms are furnished with king-size beds, while the other two are furnished with double beds.
As there can be a number of guests who are inclined to soak up the atmosphere of the private swimming pool, there are 70 square meters to ensure it never gets too crowded. Of course, you will have a butler for any requests you may have during your stay in Langkawi.
Villas with pool in Ambong
Sister property of Ambong-Ambong Rainforest Retreat, Ambong Pool Villas comprise a collection of villas, each with its own swimming pool perched on top of a steep hill and surrounded by pristine jungle. The opportunities to spot wildlife swinging right outside your windows are never rare.
The best time to relax in the 12m long swimming pool is when the sun begins to retreat in the evening, turning the sky to golden champagne in tandem with the sparkling waters of Andaman. Conversely, villas offering a view of the sunrise are also available for early risers.
Four Seasons Resort Langkawi
A brand at the top of luxury accommodation, this spectacular resort offers a range of villas, each with its own unique appeal. Villas with swimming pools are plentiful here. From the perfect honeymoon Studio Beach Villa and the 220 square meter Beach Villa with plunge pool erected on the white sand beach, to family options for up to five to 12 adults, the choice is yours here.
If you yearn for a home-away-from-home experience, settle into the Villa Royale. Inspired by a contemporary and luxurious Malaysian home, the villa is decked out in Spanish marble and accented with Moorish and Malaysian artifacts. Enveloped by a tropical landscape with azure waters lapping just beyond, the spacious living room opens onto an elegant private terrace with an infinity pool. Did we mention that there is an outdoor rain shower area?
