    Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, Malaysia

    The allure of Four Seasons Resort Langkawi begins with its location. Situated on an island coloured by legends, this 91-room property spread across 48 hectares of lush tropical gar-dens and fronting the Andaman Sea on Langkawi’s northern shore certainly inspires romance. Five-metre high red laterite walls at the resort’s entrance make guests feel as if they’re entering a private world. The property itself is divided into two zones: north for families and south for honeymooning couples or guests seeking quiet.

    My Own Eden

    There’s something wonderfully decadent about holidaying on a private island, and you’ll certainly be spoiled rotten when you visit Vivanta by Taj, Rebak Island Langkawi – the only resort on this beautiful island. Just about seven minutes by speedboat from Port Cenang on the main island of Langkawi, Rebak Island is a lush 390 acre paradise cupped by the warm Andaman Sea, with a coastline of secluded beaches and stunning rock formations, and a verdant forest that’s millions of years old.

    City Slicker

    My visit to Sunway Hotel Georgetown after 10 years brought back an interesting memory as something strange happened when my party was leaving the property. We lost the car key, despite the owner insisting she’d seen it seconds earlier, while the presence of a crow perched on the bonnet, cawing its head off made it a tad freakish!

    Casuarina Delight

    For the ultimate vacation, drop by JivaRhu Wellness & Beauty Retreat and indulge in the restorative powers of a traditional Malay massage. Lathering me with generous amounts of herbal oils, my therapist uses her thumbs and palms, and long calming strokes to gently induce blissful slumber. When I awaken an hour later, I feel refreshed and ready for a dip in the spa’s Jacuzzi. As I sip my ginger tea and bite into refreshing slices of watermelon, I enjoy the warm bubbles and ponder an extremely crucial matter – what shall I have for dinner?
