New St Regis Langkawi to become the popular holiday island’s first luxury resort in a decade.
Paradise Found and Refined: Rainforest Meets Riviera Lifestyle in the new St Regis Langkawi hotel in Malaysia. Scheduled to open on April 6, 2016, The new St. Regis Langkawi Resort will become the first luxury resort to open within the last decade in Malaysia’s coveted “Island Jewel of Southeast Asia”. Located in the 99- island archipelago of Langkawi, a UNESCO’s World First Geopark, the resort is composed of resplendent architecture, landscape, and interior design.
Envisioned by a group of world-class designers and architects—including San Francisco-based leading architectural firm, Gensler, Bangkok-based landscape architect, Bill Bensley, and UK-based hospitality design specialist, G.A. Design—The St. Regis Langkawi Resort weaves a compelling story of discovery. The luxury resort embodies a harmony of contrasts where tropical splendour blends seamlessly with the style and energy of a European mansion, thoughtfully accented by Middle Eastern finishes.
“Expanding on the concept of a paradise found and refined, the design team sought to provide a resort to strengthen Langkawi’s position in the luxury tourist market. 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.
Tucked away in an exclusive enclave in its own tranquil, private cove on Langkawi’s southern tip, The St. Regis Langkawi is fringed by a 600-metre private white sand beach overlooking the emerald green waters of a 100,000-square-metre natural salt, private swimming lagoon, and integrates with the shimmering Andaman Sea.
In keeping with the design concept, the resort thoughtfully blends indoor spaces naturally with the outdoors, and consists of a six-storey central mansion with two lagoon suite wings cascading outwards towards the shorelines.
The St. Regis Langkawi is the first luxury all-suite resort on the islands, offering four overwater villas and 85 suites, including 20 private pool suites with cabanas. A four-bedroom overwater villa and three one-bedroom overwater villas offer unrivalled sunset views.
The resort features a number of dining experiences and venues to enliven the senses. Capturing the feeling of a grand home, the resort’s Drawing Room Lounge serves as a formal entertaining space to welcome guests; it opens out onto an expansive courtyard with wide vistas of the Andaman Sea. Kayuputi, the resort’s Asian-influenced destination restaurant and bar, is conceptualised as a vintage beach house, evoking the relaxed glamour of the Malaysian Riviera from its perch over the lagoon.
Tranquil Oasis for a refined wellness experience.
Promising a curated, rejuvenating journey, the Iridium Spa is wrapped within a cocoon of waters cascading on the windows of the treatment rooms, and surrounds a central water court sunlit by the skylight overhead.
