Nestled between a 10-million-year-old rainforest and an 8,000-year-old coral reef is a tropical retreat of opulent proportions. The Andaman, a Luxury Collection Resort, located on Malaysia's stunningly scenic Langkawi Island, is your most peaceful dream come to life. Surrounded by white sand beaches, lush vegetation, and bright turquoise water, means that connecting with Mother Nature during your stay is just a given.
Each of the 178 guestrooms are outfitted to exude the warm and welcoming spirit of Malaysian hospitality. Dark wood floors, neutral color palettes, and clean, white linens create a subdued environment for the striking forest or bay views to be the focal point. Standard amenities include 300-thread-count sheets, 32-inch LCD flat screen televisions with DVD players, fully stocked mini-bar, coffee and tea, and cozy seating areas. The bathrooms can even feel like a visit to the spa with large soaking tubs, separate glass rainforest showers, Luxury Collection eucalyptus bath products, and comfy robes and slippers.
When a standard room won’t do, upgrade to an Executive Suite with rainforest or ocean views, or the Executive Pool Suite, complete with its own private plunge pool, large patio, cabana daybed, and secluded garden where you can dine outdoors under the stars. The Presidential Suite, at more than 1,800 square feet, is ideal for taking unobstructed views from your balcony’s sun bed. Inside, you’ll find a living area with kitchenette and 46-inch LED TV, as well as a separate bedroom with a king-size Luxury Collection bed and floor-to-ceiling windows framing the Datai Bay and Andaman Sea.
When you’re ready to indulge in local fare, four distinct restaurants await. Sample fresh seafood at Jala Restaurant, authentic Malaysian cuisine at Tepian Laut, Asian specialties at The Japanese Restaurant, or casual cocktails and light bites at Jentayu Lounge. The Beach Bar is especially ideal for taking in a sunset while dipping your toes in the sand and sipping a refreshing cocktail. In-room dining is also available 24 hours a day or arrange for a romantic moonlight meal for two alongside a bonfire on the beach.
The Andaman offers a number of both indoor and outdoor activities. Take a guided tour (day or night) through the rainforest to get up-close-and-personal with indigenous plant and animal life such as monkeys, birds, and flying squirrels; cruise to the Mangroves where you’ll encounter lizards, eagles, and fauna that can’t be found anywhere else in the world; or opt for bird watching, swimming, hiking, kayaking, a photography tour, and even whale shark spotting. As a family-friendly resort ,it also features the Young Explorers Club with educational nature-centric activities and excursions geared toward its littlest guests.
With a long list of accolades under its belt including being named one of the Top 20 Resorts in Asia in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards 2014, The Andaman is virtually a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. If you’re in search of adventure, tranquility, and indulgence, The Andaman, a Luxury Collection Resort can deliver all three, and leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
