Taking inspiration from The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi’s stunning views of the lush rainforest and the crystal-clear Andaman Sea, The Ritz-Carlton Spa invites guests to tune into their unique surrounding landscapes and feel the harnessing and soothing powers of nature. Overwater walkways lead to overwater cocoon shaped treatment pavilions that bob above the sea, strikingly designed to resemble ‘Malay Bubus’ - intricately woven fish traps used for centuries by local fishermen. These are intended to be a sensual and immersive experience, as the sounds of the sea and surrounding wildlife float into your treatment room. The design of the whole spa is linked with a common thread, showcasing glazed floor-to-ceiling windows bringing the outside in. The sophisticated decor has neutral tones and is made from high quality materials such as natural stone, light oak timber floors, dark walnut and soft, light linens.
The wellbeing sanctuary offers guests a state-of-the-art thermal suite with an intricate mosaic-lined steam room and sauna, as well as a revitalising ice fountain, rejuvenating experience showers and vitality pools. The Hammam Pavilion offers guests a traditional cleansing ceremony and refined ritual treatments, while the Spa Suite Pavilion boasts an expansive treatment room with a steam shower and luxurious changing facilities. Guests can look forward to an impressive array of signature treatments including the Lulur Hammam Experience, Mystical Ocean and Earth Ritual, and the Mandi Bunga Inspired Ritual. Whether an exquisite treatment from The Ritz-Carlton’s global spa collection or a ritual inspired by the indigenous healing and beauty ceremonies, practiced for thousands of years by local shamans and midwifes, each experience aims to restore the equilibrium within your body, mind and soul so that you reach a state of complete harmony.
