Review: The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa

The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa is a five-star family-friendly beachfront resort located on the idyllic Langkawi Island in Malaysia.

Upon arrival at the resort, stunning, picturesque views of the Andaman Sea and the warm sea breeze greeted us. This is the start of a wonderful beach family holiday.. I can feel it in my bones! ;)


The resort boasts 221 guest rooms and suites, luxurious private pool villas and a 5-bedroom private pool villa, all with amazing views of the seascape or tropical gardens. Officially opened in 2006, the resort features a traditional Minangkabau-style clay roof that can be seen miles away from the Andaman Sea, making this one of the iconic landmarks in Langkawi.




Shortly after enjoying our cold coconuts and a light lunch at Breeze Lounge, we were ushered to our room, or should I say suite. We stayed in the gorgeous 2-bedroom Renewal Suite (289 sqm) and the sheer vastness of the suite is enough to impress you. Ideal for a family of four, the suite is plush and luxuriously appointed with two separate bedrooms, a spacious living and dining area, a pantry with a gourmet coffee maker, a reading room/relaxation lounge, two bathrooms, one toilet and a huge private balcony that offers the same gorgeous view of the sparkling Andaman Sea and Langkawi's famous isle's, The Pregnant Maiden and Tuba Island.

 Lovely welcome amenities awaiting us in the suite ;)



All rooms are equipped with the award-winning Heavenly Bed by Westin, with its seven crisp, white layers of bedding, five plush pillows, and an exclusive pillow-top mattress plus extras such as the Lavender Balm to help you wind down naturally and SLEEP WELL.

King bed in the master bedroom and twin beds for the children in a separate bedroom. Both rooms are equipped with a 42-inch super plasma smart TV. 





Reading lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows... to maximise enjoyment of the beautiful view outside!

Since you're on holiday, why not spoil yourself to a decadent breakfast in bed? Enjoy a long lie in and get your breakfast delivered to you. The boys opted for it one morning and Baby D loved it cos he gets to eat breakfast in his PJs while watching cartoons on TV.




Located on Level 4 of the resort, Breeze Lounge offers one of my favourite views in the hotel; the outdoor terrace opens out to the beautiful sea and inviting pool. Along with blue skies, sunshine and fresh sea breeze on your face, this is the perfect place to unwind and relax with a cocktail or mocktail or simply grab a light bite.





Eat Well at Breeze Lounge - a specialty curated menu by the kitchen team here, which include Quinoa and seared scallops, Pan fried organic salmon, and Manjari Chocolate Bavarois.




Enjoy live entertainment by the resident band in the evenings, while sipping on one of the crafted cocktails and mocktails. Check out our Jumbo (Virgin) Mojito.


TIDE is the award-winning beachfront restaurant set amidst a vibrant backdrop of stunning view of the Andaman Sea and nearby isles. Guests can enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner, with a menu focusing on fresh seafood, pizzas, fresh salads and grill items.




We also enjoyed an amazing Middle Eastern dinner at TIDE, prepared by the team from Amaseena Dubai which were doing a pop-up restaurant here at Westin Langkawi. Check out our full review here.



Beautiful sunsets at Westin Langkawi


For a romantic dining experience, The Westin Langkawi is able to curate a special 5-course seafood dinner at Float, the resort’s private jetty that stretches out into the sea or at Anjung Damai, one of the intimate beachfront cabanas.




At The Westin Langkawi, guests can enjoy a refreshing dip in one of four resort-style pools - the Ocean Rock Pool, Infinity Pool with an adjoining outdoor whirlpool, Children's Pool and the restorative Heavenly Spa Pool (for adults only). Take a break from swimming and grab a drink at Splash poolside bar. Guests can also head down to the sandy beach and chill with a book under one of the shady lounge chairs.

  1. Nice, comfortable. I wonder if I will ever get to visit Langkawi again though. Don't see any reason to go there.
