While Langkawi is famed for its excellent diving opportunities, it also hides a treasure trove of other exciting attractions. If you are planning to visit, you must stay at Resorts World Langkawi Malaysia to fully enjoy this tropical gem in the Andaman Sea. Enough said, follow Ivan as he brings us through some of the best things to do when in Langkawi!
Resorts World Langkawi
Located in the tropical paradise of the Andaman Sea, Resorts World Langkawi with its picturesque surrounding is itself an attraction. The resort is just a 25 minutes drive from the airport and offers free shuttle service into Cenang Town. It’s only about a 10-minute drive away and they drop you off right at the Cenang Mall or anywhere near the activity of your choice.
The resort has been meticulous with the upgrading their suites, rooms and facilities. You will now be able to choose from a wide category of rooms for one that best suit your budgets. Still, my personal favourites are their Seaview accommodations and remember to request for their new rooms when you make your booking.
At Resorts World Langkawi there are a total of three dining options, Seagull coffeehouse where you will have your breakfast, Zest for an outdoor BBQ buffet and lastly casual drinks at the Lobby Lounge.
If you are having your breakfast near the sea, try throwing some bread crumbs in the water for a little surprise.
Resorts World Langkawi – Sunset Cruise
Resorts World Langkawi also offers a cruise ride for you to party as you watch the sunset. This cruise sets off at 5pm daily to the open ocean for you to enjoy the beautiful Jewel of Kedah. Seat back and enjoy the warm sea breeze and soothing sounds of the waves lapping against the boat. On the boat, there will be a professionally trained life guards as well as a photographer to help capture those picture perfect moments. There are a few activities onboard the boat for you to try out while waiting for the sun to set.
Fancy a dip in the open waters?
Else you can also consider soaking yourself in the Salt Water Jacuzzi!
Chilling out in the waters and jumping about in open waters is sure to make you hungry. The thoughtful folks on the cruise also prepared a gourmet barbeque feast with fresh seafood, chicken, satay as well as various Asian and western styles dishes.
After your meal, just quietly savour the view of the sea and get lost in her rhythmic percussion of waves. Keep your focus on the horizon as the mighty sun embraces the waters good night – sending out a symphony of orange and pink hues across the sky.
As it gets dark, feel free to choose from the wide selection of beer, wine, liquor, cocktails and fruit juices, or sip Pina Colada while dancing to the music as the ship takes a slow ride back to port.
Resorts World Langkawi – Mangrove River Tour
There are a few major highlights on this tour and one of them is feeding the wild fishes. The common name of these black and yellow stripped fishes is “Sergeant Major”. Even though their nibbles don’t hurt still be careful when feeding them.
One of the two pit stops in this tour will be at the fish farms. There is a place for you to buy some drinks and activates like fish feeding and a short tour of the various life that lives in the river.
Now the gem of the tour is none other than eagle watching. The boat will stop at a special place for you to watch these eagles as they dive down to catch their prey. Sapping a photo of these mighty birds will be tricky as they are fast.
The last stop of the tour will be lunch at a floating restaurant, where you will get to savour a scrumptious meal made for you by the locals.
Resorts World Langkawi – Night Markets
Langkawi has fabulous night markets every evening at various locations around the island. From Resorts World Langkawi, you simply need to tell the reception at the lobby that you going to Cenang Town night market and they will arrange a free transport there for you. You will be able to find not only many duty-free shops around but also delicious local food and many things for you to buy. There are massage parlours at almost every turn and hidden gems if you walk further to find them. Remember it is just 10-minutes away from Resorts World Langkawi.
Resorts World Langkawi – Catching the Sunrise
One of the things you must defiantly do before leaving is catching the sunrise. Be sure to wake up at 645am to watch the yellow Jewel rise from the horizon painting the skyline from blue to a radiant white. Take a moment to lose yourself in the silent beauty as the islands come to life.
