What To Enjoy On Your Escape To Langkawi with KrisFlyer

If you haven’t started thinking about where to head to this year-end, here’s an idea: Langkawi, or the Jewel of Kedah.

If you’ve not been to this archipelago off Malaysia’s northwest coast, then picture a pristine and alluring island, covered with lush rainforests, beaches, and crystal clear waters. 

Sounds good? Consider redeeming your KrisFlyer miles for this bespoke 4D3N charter trip to Langkawi – flights, land transfers, accommodation, activities, and some meals are offered in this experience that’s proudly brought to you by KrisFlyer Experiences. Enjoy!


1. Try the newest cabin products in the Singapore Airlines fleet

If you’ve not had the opportunity to fly in one of Singapore Airlines’ B737-8s, which made its debut in late 2021, then this is your chance to do so. This plane model offers travellers the option of flying Business or Economy Class, with the former featuring a seat that reclines to a 76 inch fully flat bed – for those who’d like to enjoy a short nap on the journey there and back. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the 85-minute flight!


2. Check into one of two Marriott properties

You’ll have the chance to choose between two hotels – The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi and The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa. Both are situated on the southern tip of the island and have access to their own private beach along the Andaman Sea.

At The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi, choose between the Rainforest Deluxe or the Rainforest Junior Suite if you’d like to wake up to views of the lush green centuries-old rainforest. If this is a special occasion for you and your significant other, and you’d prefer to live it up a little, choose to go with the Beach Villa.

This sophisticated beachfront accommodation comes with its own private sundeck and infinity pool facing the glistening waters of the sea. With this option, you’d likely want to spend your whole stay lounging in your plush villa!

On the other hand, if you’d prefer to stay at The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa, you’ll have the chance to choose between the Premium Ocean View Room or the Partial Ocean View Villa.

Besides enjoying your time in your comfortable room, make time to explore the grounds of this property, such as its four outdoor pools and four dining options – this makes it an ideal choice for those travelling with young ones!

3. Enjoy indulgent meals

Decadent breakfasts are a must-have for a relaxing beach getaway on a tropical island, and on this trip, you’ll get to enjoy a large buffet spread every morning. Quench your thirst with tropical fruit juices, indulge in freshly baked pastries, load up on your favourite hot food items – eggs, cooked the way you like them done, sausages, and a variety of local delights await you. 

But that’s not all that you’ll get to feast on. When you sign up for this trip, you’ll also enjoy a welcome dinner. At The Ritz-Carlton Langkawi, it’ll be held at Horizon, a premier outdoor restaurant and bar which rests atop a rocky outcrop, where you’ll literally dine above the lapping waves of the sea, and savour a three-course set dinner. At The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa, you’ll tuck into a local set dinner at Seasonal Tastes. Look forward to delighting in their Ayam Percik (a medley of chicken, mushrooms, and rice) – which is a signature item at the restaurant!


4. Sign up for a wide range of activities

Add some variety to your days on this tranquil island by taking part in a range of activities available. At The Ritz-Carlton Langkawi, you might want to go on an offsite tour to explore the best of what this island has to offer. Or you could choose to try your hand at batik painting! Those who love sports can sign up for a scenic sunset kayak or paddle board, and others who love to imbibe can sign up for the cocktail master class.

If you’re calling The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa home for this trip, you’ll have access to a different suite of experiences. 

If you’re one who likes sports and fitness, you can choose to go on group runs (both at sunrise and sunset), kayaking adventures, or sunrise/sunset yoga sessions. Alternatively, show up for the batik painting session which is also offered at this property. Create something out of upcycled linen that you can take home as a souvenir, to remember the fun times you had at the Jewel of Kedah, or donate them to a charity organisation of your choice!
