When you’re in the mood for a getaway in luxurious seclusion, set your eyes on St. Regis Langkawi (Jalan Pantai Beringin, Langkawi, Malaysia; +60 4 960 6666; starwoodhotels.com/stregis)
Tucked away in its own tranquil cove on Langkawi’s southern tip, the hotel greets you with a Middle Eastern-esque grand palace charm surrounded by a lush oasis.
The establishment’s private white-sand beach overlooks an equally private salted swimming lagoon, which comes from the natural integration with the waters of the Andaman Sea.
Accomodation-wise, guests can choose between four overwater villas or the 85 suites, including 20 private pool suites with cabanas.
Considering all the luxuries concentrated in this one private hideaway, it is a real slice of paradise indeed.
