Romantic Getaway

With untouched rainforests and pristine beaches, Langkawi is the perfect backdrop for any love story. Take advantage of the open-air yoga classes, couple’s massages and private, secluded excursions just for two. After spending your days lounging poolside together, be sure to hit the sand to share a bottle of something bubbly over an unobscured view of the sunset. This is one sweet escape you’ll want to return to year after year.

Day

1

MORNING
  • A Peaceful Start.

    Begin your stay by practicing your vinyasa on an open-air deck at The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi. Surrounded by the rainforest and the soothing sounds of a stream nearby, find your Zen before beginning your busy day.

  • Walkway of Wishes.

    On your way back, stop by the Walkway of Wishes fountain by the entrance of the hotel. Inspired by the freshwater lake on Dayang Bunting, believed to be a mystical granter of wishes, write your own wish on a stone and place it in the water. Fingers crossed.

MIDDAY
  • A Waterfall Worth Chasing.

    Take a hike through the rainforest of Mat Cincang Nature Park to the tallest waterfall on the island, Temurun. This three-tier waterfall cascades down nearly 100 feet, forming a cool freshwater pool perfect for a dip. The paved walking path is quiet and lush, making it lovely for a romantic stroll.

  • Melt into a Massage.

    Book a couple’s massage in the luxurious Bubu Spa Suite, a private room with a veranda and stunning ocean views. Enjoy your choice of massages and treatments, from hot stones and deep tissue to stress relief and relaxation. Opt for the 180-minute experience, which includes a customized facial.

AFTERNOON
  • Meander through the Mangroves.

    For an experience you won’t soon forget, head out on an excursion through the mangroves, where you’ll spot native flora and fauna like herons and sea eagles. After an on-site lunch, you’ll take a short hike to a stunning jungle pool for a swim.

EVENING
  • Going Down.

    Head down the island’s west coast to Pantai Tengah to catch the sunset. Less crowded than its sister beach to the north, this is the perfect place to grab a beachside cocktail and quietly watch the sun go down.

  • Sushi with a View.

    When you arrive at Unkaizan, choose from Western-style seating on the first floor, Japanese-floor cushions on the second floor or tables on the garden terrace. Select your dinner from the restaurant’s fish tank and then enjoy your sashimi with a glass of sake. Kampai!

Day

2

MORNING
  • 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.

MIDDAY
  • 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.

AFTERNOON
  • 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.

EVENING
  • 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.
