Who hasn’t at some point wanted to feel as if they were in paradise? Many of our guests at the Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa recommend our luxury resort as it is paradise as well as a temple of relaxation and well-being. However, there are other magnificent places in Asia like Langkawi that you will also love.

Langkawi, also known as Langkawi Permata Kedah in Malayan (Langkawi, the jewel of Kedah), is a Malaysian archipelago which consists of 99 islands located in the Andaman Sea, about 30 kilometres away from the continental coast of the country.

In 2007, the UNESCO gave the islands the status of World Geo Park, as there are three parks: Maching Geoforest Cambrian Park, Kilim Karst Geo Forest Park and Dayang Bunting Marble Geo Forest Park (or Pregnant Lake Island).

An ancient legend combined with the wind and water at Langkawi. If you ask anyone on the island about this story, they will tell you this mysterious tale of a pretty young girl called Mahsuri, love, jealousy and curse.

The Temurun Waterfalls are the highest waterfalls in the country, and are one of the most popular spots on the islands. But this is just one of many facts about the landscape in Langkawi, where the formation of the Asian continent can be seen dating back to the Cambrian Era.

Gua Kelawar is one of the most interesting and better known caves on the islands, as hundreds of bats live inside it.

Gua Kelawar, and Gua Cherita are both caves with stories linked to mythical legends of gods and heroes, and they may only be reached by boat. In this journey through the River Kilim, you will also enjoy the local fauna, monkeys, lemurs and spectacular birds like Brahmini Kite, of the white tailed kite family, which has become a representing symbol of Langkawi.

But Langkawi is not only about the landscape, it is also about its peculiar people and traditions and its tasty cuisine.

If you feel like living a paradise-like experience, and enjoy luxury and the peace and quiet we offer, don’t think about it any longer and come visit us at the Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa, where you will feel Asia very close to you.
