Spacious bedrooms with magnificent private dressing rooms and en-suite bathrooms boast pale tones and natural materials echoing the landscape. Featuring a soft, neutral palette of cool wooden floors, cream walls and sun-drenched wood adorned with contemporary art by famed Malaysian artists, the simplicity of the island-inspired interior is enhanced by a collection of locally made tea sets, coasters and fruit bowls, all sourced from the island’s artists, connecting guests with the heritage of the setting and essence of the island.

All furniture throughout the Villa is bespoke, designed to celebrate the island and further enhance the views. Every detail has been deeply considered to create the perfect blend of discreet and timeless luxury, contemporary designs and Langkawian heritage.

With ample space for six adults and two children and expansive open-plan indoor and outdoor living areas, there is plenty of room for families with several generations in tow, or for groups of friends looking for an exclusive island house-party type getaway.

Unforgettable Culinary Experience

The enchanted rainforest villa journey includes an unforgettable culinary chef experience. A specialised menu curated by Executive Chef Mattia Salussoglia reveals a unique gourmet experience that reflects the resort’s culinary philosophy, celebrating the very best of seasonal, regional and, where possible, organic produce, sourced from local boutique farms, private growers and fisherman.  The menu celebrates the bountiful produce from the sea and land, offering the freshest ingredients possible. Highlights include the Andaman Bamboo Lobster Risotto and the Langkawian Tenggiri. Italian chef Mattia Salussoglia has had an impressive career working across a number of top fine-dining restaurants and five-star luxury hotels including the St Moritz’s Badrutt’s Palace and Capri Palace’s two Michelin starred Restaurant Olivo, Hilton Shanghai and the Renaissance Shanghai Zhongshan Park Hotel. Mattia brings with him dedication and respect towards high-quality cuisine, which is expressed in the best choice of natural ingredients and cooking procedures, in compliance with their colours, scents and fragrance.

Blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living, the lounge, dining and bedroom spaces open onto comfortably furnished terraces with mesmerising ocean views perfect for sunrise breakfasts, sunset cocktails and dinner under the stars. Guests of Villa Mutiara can expect Louie Roederer Cristal and Caviar upon arrival, and will enjoy a complimentary mini bar inclusive of soft drinks and snacks replenished daily.
