Langkawi is one of only four inhabited islands in an archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea. As Southeast Asia’s first UNESCO Geopark, its opportunities are endless: from bird watching and snorkelling to jungle trekking to golf and island-hopping.
Four Seasons Resort Langkawi is adjacent to one of the undisputed highlights of the UNESCO Geopark: the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park, where Mangrove & Eagles Safaris will bring you up close with some of the world’s most intriguing wildlife: eagles, monitor lizards, monkeys, walking fish, fiddler crabs, bats… and if you’re lucky, even vipers and otters.
The Resort is also ideally placed for Rainforest Immersions, Wondrous Waterfalls hikes, village bike tours, deep-sea fishing and archipelago cruises. Go extreme walking along the Sky Bridge (700-metres above sea level). Or fly, swing and glide your way around the epic tree-to-tree Skytrex Adventure.
Langkawi is also a tax-free archipelago, which means guests (of Four Seasons Resort Langkawi) are exempt from paying the 6% GST levied throughout the rest of Malaysia.
