Climb Every Mountain. Wake up as early as you can to catch the sunrise from the highest mountain in Langkawi. With an altitude of nearly 2,900 feet, it is possible to trek up Gunung Raya by foot, but a better option is taking a taxi. As you ascend, take in the view of the dense, rainforest vegetation, and then marvel as you watch the sun peer over the Andaman Sea.
Wave Watching. After waking up with the sun, take a well-deserved break on the white sands of Tanjung Rhu. This secluded and serene beach is one of Langkawi’s most beautiful and untouched stretches of shore. A must-see for any beach connoisseur.
Get Crafty. Try your hand at something different with an on-property soapmaking class, where you’ll learn how to make your own organic soap using local ingredients and herbs. It’s the perfect memento to take home.
Kiss the Cook. Under the guidance of The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi’s chef, learn how to make an authentic Malay lunch. You’ll prepare gulai udang (fish curry with pineapple) and ayam percik (spicy roasted chicken), and you’ll leave with a recipe card to re-create the dishes when you return home.
Island Hopping. Spend the rest of your afternoon exploring a few of Langkawi’s 99 islands on a private yacht. Must-sees are Pulau Beras Basah, famous for its pristine white-sand beach, and Dayang Bunting, home to the mystical freshwater lake.
One Last Toast. Your last night in paradise calls for a little extra celebrating. Head to Horizon, The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi’s adult-only, beachside bar and lounge. Enjoy the intimate ambience with a bottle of champagne and relax as the golden hour begins its magic in the sky.
Dine on the Beach. On request, The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi will arrange a romantic sunset dinner in a private gazebo on the beach. As the sun disappears into the sea, enjoy a cocktail, then watch as your personal chef prepares a four-course meal right before your eyes. Cheers to an unforgettable last night in paradise.
