[dropcap size=small]L[/dropcap]angkawi, the ‘Island Jewel of Southeast Asia’, welcomes its first luxury hotel in the last decade with St. Regis Langkawi, which is set to be opened on Apr 6. Located to the south of the island and nestled in an exclusive, secluded bay, the hotel is surrounded by a stretch of private white sand beach accompanied by a shimmering lagoon – with its refined overwater villas and elegant suites, the property resembles a splendid residential palace on the peninsula.

“Our compelling architectural vision for The St. Regis Langkawi defines the entire resort experience as a journey of discovery—of sanctuary, of vistas, of wellness, of cuisine, of fresh water, and of salt water,” said Tom Lindblom, Principal Architect at Gensler, the San Francisco-based leading architectural firm which visualised the hotel.
