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.

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.

The Sanskrit word maya may mean illusion but rest assured, there’s nothing illusory about the cool comfort of Maya Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. With the glittering Petronas Twin Towers on one side and Kuala Lumpur Tower on the other, this is arguably the best seat in town to ogle the towers that have defined KL’s skyline.

The surging popularity in alternative and complementary therapies reflects a desire for more natural things in life. While the clinical efficacy of these treatments is still being debated, one thing is for sure: There is a difference between ‘alternative therapies’ and ‘complementary therapies’ – the former replaces mainstream medical treatment, while the latter acts as a support. Some are fairly safe and natural, but others can be quite invasive and may worsen your condition. Always check with your doctor or healthcare professional on the safety of opting for these methods.
