Stay in a Malaysian Palace Near the Sea
Langkawi is the name of both a Malaysian archipelago in the Andaman Sea and the largest of the archipelago’s 99 sandy islands. Now two new properties are opening up the less-visited southwest coast. The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi (from $450), slated to open this summer near an ancient rain forest, will have its own private beach. The 90 rooms and 29 pool villas will take design cues from traditional Malay palaces, while basket-shaped spa cabanas will appear to float on the sea.—Sandra Ramani.
