So your requirements for your next getaway include tropical island, five-star, family-friendly and just, you know, not too much of a schlep to get to from Singapore? Well, you’ll be laying out your resort wear just as soon as you hear about this exclusive offer for EL readers from The Andaman, A Luxury Collection Resort, in Langkawi, Malaysia.
Part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts and The Luxury Collection Hotel & Resorts (call us snobs, but you kinda know you’re onto a good thing when you hear both of those groups in the same sentence), book a break at this idyllic hideaway from now through 22 December 2015, with rates starting from MYR745 per room per night for a Deluxe Rainforest room, and they’ll throw in welcome drinks and a fruit basket on arrival, daily buffet breakfast for two, complimentary Wi-Fi, free parking and late checkout.
As locations go, you don’t get much more spectacular than The Andaman. Framed by ancient rainforest (keep those peepers open for the rare colugo, dusky leaf monkey and hornbills) and overlooking Datai Bay with its it’s 8,000-year-old coral reef and stretch of beach so pristine that it’s been voted 9th best in the world by the chaps over at National Geographic, you can be guaranteed a view worth Instagram’ing from each of the 178 refurbished rooms and suites.
Choose from Luxury Seaview rooms with a private balcony, Luxury Garden Terrace Rooms with a private garden overlooking the rainforest, or one of 14 Luxury Pool Access Rooms where you’ll have exclusive use of two new rainforest swimming pools – and all with Italian coffee machines throughout.
Or up the ante in a suite! Jacuzzi Studio Suites boast their very own patch of rainforest garden, Executive Seaview Suites rock a private terrace with rainforest shower, free-standing bathtub and complimentary minibar, and Executive Pool Suites wrap up a private plunge pool, cabana daybeds and that complimentary minibar again (it gets us every time!).
Foodies needn’t go hungry with four restos’ and the Jentayu Lounge (don’t miss their evening live entertainment) and Beach Bar serving up local and international fare and cocktails. Head to The Restaurant for sumptuous breakfast buffets and an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner, the fine-dining beachfront venue Jala for award-winning seafood, The Japanese Restaurant for authentic favourites, and Tepian Laut to sample Malaysian dishes.
We’ll get onto the kids in a second, because Mums the V Botanical Spa, perched on the hillside and with a few 2015 Harper’s Bazaar Spa Awards under its belt, deserves your attention right this second. Do yourself a favour and mooch along for the signature Kahuna Wave massage and a yoga and meditation class or two – you won’t regret it!
And, while you’re doing just that, your offspring could very well be doing some Junior Yoga themselves at the Young Explorers Club. Here, trained staff will put the smalls in your party through their paces with endless (and, yes, educational) fun and games, including butterfly hunts, nature drawing, seashell-collecting, fish-feeding, three-legged races and badminton.
Young and old guests will also have the opportunity to visit the Marine Life Laboratory and Coral Nursery where they can learn more about marine biology and play their part in the resort’s coral conservation project by transplanting live coral to be returned to the sea to increase the biodiversity of the bay.
And, if you can drag yourself away from the lagoon-style swimming pool with water slide and wading pool, there are heaps of other nature activities that you can get involved in, including walks, treks, mangrove cruises, kayaking and bird-watching. Add to this cooking classes, watersports, golf at the world-renowned Els Club Teluk Datai course and a fitness centre, and you can be sure that there won’t be any twiddling of thumbs on this holiday!
