I haven’t been to Langkawi for the longest time ever so when I received an invitation to join Resorts World Langkawi FAM trip , I immediately agreed and packed my bags to party! Apart from staying in the newly refurbished rooms at Resorts World Langkawi, my weekend 3D/2N getaway also includes fun outdoor activities and tours as well. Upon our arrival, we spend the day at Resorts World Langkawi itself – a fun property tour around the resort. I got myself the newly renovated Deluxe Seaview room which offers a panoramic view of the cerulean sea. Don’t believe me, check out the video below:
Finish the tour of our room, we continued our way around the resorts. Are you aware that Resorts World Langkawi has a lighthouse? The view is simply fantastic.
Adults and kids alike will be delighted by the beautiful swimming pool where one can sit and relax. An exciting news for travellers, next year February, Resorts World Langkawi will be revealing its Infinity Pool!
For relaxation of the mind, body and soul, guests can check into the five-star Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa at the resort.
Loved the fact that Resorts World Langkawi has set up some of the gym’s equipment at the outdoor area so that guests can exercise while enjoying the blue sea and fresh air.
Finishing our tour and after a hot shower, we headed to dine at Zest on the Broad Walk. An al-freso dining concept where we enjoyed sumptuous BBQ dinner while watching the sunset.
The next day, I woke up early to catch the sunrise at the Broad Walk area.
Headed off to the Seagull Coffee House which serves a variety of Asian and Intercontinental dishes for breakfast. Quite a nice spread and I realized that we can actually watch the sunrise while enjoying our breakfast outdoor as well.
MANGROVE TOUR AT SUNGAI KUBANG BADAK
Time to head off to Kubang Badak for our Mangrove Tour which takes approximately an hour to arrive. In the bus, our tour guide highlighted to us some of the attraction spots that we will be stopping by. This is my first Mangrove Tour and I’m definitely excited to check out the mentioned attraction spots such as Old Charcoal Factory, Pinang Cave and Mangrove Forest Explore.
We were lucky to have such a fun and experience tour guide who’s really passionate about mangrove forests. He showed us different types of mangrove trees and explained in detailed how they survive and grow. We were also pointed out to some of the living species that breeds in the mangrove forest. He definitely made our trip so enjoyable and fun!
OLD CHARCOAL FACTORY
Never in my life would I imagined finding a charcoal factory inside a mangrove forest! It was pretty interesting as we explore the long abandoned factory.
GUA PINANG aka PINANG CAVE
Thank god I was wearing sneakers as we need to trek through the jungle to Pinang Cave. Takes about 25 minutes to arrive at the cave entrance. There’s no camera flash allowed inside the cave as we wouldn’t want to disturb them. In case you can’t take the stench, cover your nose with a hankie.
Overall, it was a fun time exploring the hidden gems in Langkawi. If you would like more information, please visit Sungai Kubang BADAK Mangrove
SUNSET CRUISE WITH TROPICAL CHARTER
After resting from our mangrove tours, we girls are dressed up for the Sunset Cruise Dinner with Tropical Charter. The cruise will depart from the hotel at 5pm and back to the hotel at 8pm.
We get to choose whether to chill outside the deck or inside. Best part, they serves free flows drinks – juices and cocktails. Go ahead and order your favourite drinks while enjoying the cruise.
Once, we reached the deep open sea, this is where it gets exciting. Our captain informed us that we may jump into the sea (with assistance of professional lifeguards) or either swim ourself over to the other side of the boat and lie on the net whilst the boat is cruising. This is known as the sea salt spa treatment and it’s certainly amazing!
As the sun starts to set, food is served too. The BBQ food are simply delicious! If you think that’s all, wait for the music and head to the upper deck and danced the night away while the boat cruises back to the hotel. I had so much fun that night!
There’s a promotion to enjoy sunset cruise dinner and 3D/2N stay in Resorts World Langkawi for just RM760 for two . (Valid till 31st December 2016). More information can be found at Langkawi Sunset Cruise Packages
This is our last day in Langkawi and we are heading off for some light outdoor activities before heading home. Off we go to the open sea for for Eagle Feeding. Our boat is parked a distanced away from the feeding area as if we’re too close the eagles will not come down for the meat. See how the majestic eagles swoop down to enjoy their meal below:
On our way back, we did a quick stop to see the glorious view of the legendary Pregnant Maiden Island aka Pulau Dayang Bunting.
There are other outdoor activities available at Resorts World Langkawi such as kayaking, jet-skiing, scuba-diving and snorkelling as well.
