With renowned interior designers and architecture firm G.A. Design and Gensler, The St. Regis Langkawi brings about a classical but contemporary aesthetic. Guests are invited into a dreamy atmosphere that epitomises the very best of elegant island living through thoughtfully-blended indoor and outdoor spaces. The mansion houses within The St. Regis Langkawi draws inspiration from European and Middle Eastern influences with a subtle color palette of soft blues and beige while playing up the stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Islamic arches, mashrabiya-inspired screening, and large private courtyards embrace the design’s axial symmetry, giving way to a garden oasis populated with date palms, allamanda and bougainvillea.

Similar to The St. Regis Bali Resort, The St. Regis Langkawi offers an all-suite luxury resort in the archipelago (including 4 private overwater villas and 85 luxuriously-appointed suites).

The St. Regis Langkawi features six distinct restaurant and bar venues, including Kayuputi, which serves Asian-inspired haute cuisine.

The visual feast is augmented by a specially curated antique collection featuring century-old wooden doors and windows repurposed from the Dutch embassy in Yangon and 60 teak columns inlaid with camel bone from India. In addition, the resort also offers modern French cuisine infused with Asian and Middle Eastern flavors at L’Orangerie, featuring spectacular views of the Andaman Sea and lush rainforest. The Gourmand Deli crafts a generous selection of fresh, homemade breads and pastries, as well as a selection of refreshing iced teas infused with local herbs and spices.
