Discover the enchanting fusion of tropical splendour with the elegance and vitality of a European mansion, the St. Regis Resort & Spa is an architectural gem on Malaysia’s breathtaking Langkawi Island.
Perched in a charming inlet along the captivating south-eastern coast of Langkawi Island, the St. Regis Langkawi Resort & Spa beckons travellers with its promise of paradise found and refined. Cradled between ancient rainforests and the serene Andaman Sea, the resort provides guests with unparalleled unspoiled views, making it an ideal destination for luxury travellers seeking an exceptional experience. As part of the worldwide collection of St. Regis Hotels and Resorts, this luxurious haven is a testament to architectural excellence and an unrivalled guest experience, harmoniously blending sanctuary, luxury, and discovery.
Gensler envisioned a resort that would captivate the hearts of guests seeking an unforgettable escape. Embracing the theme of discovery, Gensler designed the resort as an enchanting sensory journey – from peaceful retreats to breath-taking views, from indulgent wellness experiences to delightful dining, and from lush greenery to the endless allure of the sea.
Upon arrival, guests are immersed in a dreamlike atmosphere, as blue lights, cooling mists, and a lush garden oasis surrounded by villas featuring azure-tiled plunge pools and airy cabanas. Beyond its architectural grandeur, the St. Regis Langkawi Resort & Spa is designed to evoke strong emotional connections, blending traditional architectural elements with modern touches to inspire wonder and allure. The master plan encourages exploration, with view corridors offering gentle light and shade to pique curiosity.
At the heart of the resort stands the magnificent lobby, known as the Mansion, an architectural marvel and the central highlight of the St. Regis Langkawi. The design pays homage to the St. Regis legacy of “Paradise Found,” elegantly merging English Manor House features with Moroccan influences, perfectly suited for the tropical climate.
Adding to the allure of the resort are the exquisite Lagoon Suites that cascade gently towards the sea. These lavish suites provide captivating views, unmatched privacy, and a luxurious experience that exceeds expectations. Additionally, each ground-level Lagoon Suite comes with a private pool and garden area, enhancing the allure of indulgence.
Guests embark on a sensory journey through a variety of dining experiences and settings. The Drawing Room Lounge, with its grandeur, serves as a formal gathering space, welcoming guests to a magical and lively ambiance. L’Orangerie, the signature restaurant, draws inspiration from traditional European greenhouses, featuring a potted orange tree at its centre, an open kitchen, and a spacious courtyard terrace offering panoramic sea views.
The St. Regis Bar, adorned with a beautiful hand-carved wooden mural depicting the local Beringin tree, exudes an enchanting atmosphere with scenic rainforest vistas. Additionally, the Decanter Wine Cellar, an exclusive space within The St. Regis Bar, boasts an impressive collection of over a thousand bottles, captivating wine enthusiasts. As guests relish the luxurious surroundings, savour delectable cuisine, and explore the enchanting environment, Gensler’s masterpiece embodies refined indulgence, where each moment is a discovery of pure enchantment.
As the sun sets over the Andaman Sea, the St. Regis Langkawi Resort & Spa transforms into a spectacle of lights and shadows, offering a new perspective on its exquisite architecture. The play of light on the intricate details, the reflection of stars in the private plunge pools, and the gentle rustling of leaves in the nearby rainforest all contribute to an ambiance that is truly magical.
