When you’ve only got a few days off, all you really want to do is spend your days lounging on a beach chair, clocking in some much needed R&R time – things your kids might not be too fond of. If you are hard-pressed to find something to keep the children occupied, don’t fret – Langkawi holds within its shores the perfect luxury family retreat. Cocooned in lush forestry, dramatic cliffs and powder-soft sands, the Four Seasons Resort (a quick flight from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore) presents you with 5-star service and activities that cater to guests of all ages.
Set on Langkawi’s best beach, Tanjong Rhu, the chic villas and pavilions of this luxurious haven come complete with spacious rooms, private verandas and stunning sunset views over the Andaman Sea. They offer special child-sized bathrobes, juice before bed-time, music and storytelling performances at the kids club and even kiddie yoga – especially for the pleasure of your little ones!
Lightfoot Travel recommends families to stay in the Lower Maleleuca Pavilions as it has a plentiful garden area for a game of hide-and-seek, and it is also a much safer play area than the Upper Maleleuca Pavillions.
For the adventure-lover in you, the Four Seasons Langkawi offers kayak trips through the mangroves, jungle walks, golf, go-carting, horse-riding and a decent variety of watersports. Also, on one of your late afternoons there, you should head out to Gunung Raya, the highest peak on the island, to see the horn bills at sunset before experiencing the local buzz of one of the popular night markets in Langkawi.
But at the end of the day, if what you’d really like to do is unwind and take a well deserved break, there’s no better place to indulge in cocktails and tropical sea breeze with your partner than on the balcony of the Four Seasons Reading Room.
The Four Seasons Resort in Langkawi, guarantees entertainment for the entire family and definitely goes on to our list of all-time favourite family hotels to date – time to check in to your perfect Family Escape with a connecting second room at half price, from now till 31 October 2011.
