Ahh Maylasia. These two weeks in Langkawi basically cover a typical tropical resort vacation...exactly what I needed after 2 months of being on the move. Lots of sleeping, laying by the pool (an infinity pool overlooking the Andamen, in a private cabana being served drinks, fresh fruit, cool rags, etc by our "butler"), eating wonderful meals from …

at the fuel station and a number of people are trying to help us unlock the key lock without luck. The guy who had initially helped said the only option he could see was to take me back to our accommodation and get another key or help from the guesthouse. So I hitched up my skirt, jumped on the back of his motorbike and took off with anita wondering if she would see me again.

Our man overboard went less well as we tried to pick him up with wind behind us. A bit of a no no in sailing. Thankfully we were using a fender as a person rather than actually chucking someone overboard. By the time we picked our victim up we had been going round in circles for some time. January ...
... And it seemed very fond of getting pet whenever the opportunity arose. And in one of the other cages, we could see several stingrays swimming around. One of them were more than a metre across. The farm was very crowded, since it was something like 6 or 7 boats arriving to the small place at the same time. After some feeding and hearing others getting explanations from their guides, we headed off to the next stop, the bat cave. We went in with a torch in our hand and immediately saw ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, Malaysia
The new Fours Seasons in Langkawi is certainly one of the best hotels on the island. People always compare with The Datai because now those two resorts will come in the picture for visitors wanting the absolute luxury on Langkawi. We stayed in both resort and still think The Four Seasons will have to go the extra miles to compete with the unique Datai :
I booked a 3 nights stay in FS. Upon arrival, it was pouring cats and dogs and the entrance to the lobby was literally covered by at least 2-3 inches of water.
The slightly weird thing about the Four Seasons is that it's not that photogenic: but it's a terrific place to stay, even if it doesn't deliver the perfect picture of a hotel in a tropical paradise. I stayed in one of the villas and it was sensational inside: beautiful use of wood, an amazing amount of space - and great facilities including DVD players, Bose sound systems and every kitchen gadget you could need including a microwave and an espresso maker. Service was brilliant: just incredibly charming, and lots of unexpected extras - complimentary cocktails and canapes each evening, and the hotel laid on a bottle of champagne after a small difficulty with the room. It's not absolutely perfect: there are some teething problems and odd bits of design don't quite work - the rooms are so huge that some of the sound system's acoustics can be a bit odd, and the extensive use of wood generates the problem of doors sticking because of the contrast between dry and rainy season. But that pales into insignificance against what does work from the design: an incredible amount of privacy because of the clever use of service roads; massive personal spaces to enjoy; and a feeling that the whole place is relaxed and uncluttered, even when the numbers staying there are building up. I enjoyed the food too: it's true there's not much contrast between the two restaurants, but both provided really nice dinners - and not expensive by western standards. My guess is the Four Seasons Langkawi will get even better; but it's genuinely excellent and a lovely place to stay already.
My fiancé and I stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of May. We had a great time but it did take a day to warm into liking the resort.
I just returned from the FS Langkawi and am still amazed at this incredible resort. I have no doubt it will set the standard for beauty, attention to details, amenities, accommodations and service. I am sure I will run out of adjectives to describe this remarkable place. It is such an awe-inspiring wonder that you will be undoubtedly struck by what has been created here. Let the raving begin.
We stayed at this hotel following an incredible experience at The Datai, and were terribly disappointed. The architecture, while stunning,lacks any local character - elements of it are arabic, some balinese - a total mish mash. We felt that although the details and level of luxury were great, it felt a littel like staying at an upmarket Dineyland - everything was "themed" and lacked the langourous elegance of The Datai. The place was still being built and many od teh facilities were closed - the main restaurant opened the night after we left, the retail centre, spa , tennis courts and business centre were all in the proces of being built which resulted in builders, workmen, and worst of all , litter and debris everywhere. No DVD's or CD's were available, and the TV goes off at night.Upon our first visit to the beach bar, water was poured in to a cold glass which promptly shattered - we were told this had happenned frequently and they were in the process of obtaining new glassware. There was an electricity cut lasting a few hours on day two , which also meant that the toilets could not be flushed. Our outdoor shower, while undeniably beautiful , was full of debris, insects and a snail ! Room service was erratic, with dirty glasses being left in the room and the room not being serviced until late afternoon, and then only after a reminder. The telephone sysytem is incredibly complex, and calls often went unanswered. Our request for a first floor room was ignored, and the early morning call for our last morning was twenty minutes late and tehn repeated twice ! Our breakfast room order was misunderstood - we only recieved tea and coffe with nothing to eat. The staff, while attentive, lacked finesse and were too nervous and inexperienced to enable us to relax,
It really depends on what you want. If you think it is important to be able to swim and wallow on crystal clear water, forget the Four Seasons and go to the Datai or Andaman. The Datai /Andaman beach is idyllic, one of the most picture perfect and unspoilt beaches in Asia. The Four Seasons beach has silty water and nobody spends any time on it. The Tanjong Rhu beach has the same poor quality water and the hotel is next to a huge telephone mast that towers above it. Reports on the food are not that good either.
We have just spent our first 3(out of 9) nights at this amazing hotel.
I had the opportunity 1 week ago to visit this resort and I was very surprised by many aspects :
WOW, you have to see it to believe it! I am a Four Seasons regular..... I actually plan my vacations depending on where Four Seasons are located and trust me when I say I have been to most of them. Unfortunately, this resort does not open for 2 more months, but I just had to see it! So, I stopped by and the General Manager set me off on a site tour. I spent 4 hours touring the property and was just in awe of the details and luxury and thoughfulness which went into this resort. It is located on the most beautiful white sand beach and crystal clear water, and the rooms are like nothing I've ever seen. I could go on and on and on, but I will not until I actually go back this year once they are open....spend the money, don't miss out on this one, it blows the Detai out of the water!
