Honeymoon Heaven: Luxury in Langkawi

Thumb thumb img 6307v1 By Vicky Inglis • For Nic & Hayley's trip to Thailand
"Lonely Planet nominated Malaysia as one of their top countries to visit in 2014, and it offers everything you're looking for: warm weather, tropical beaches with crystal clear water, luxe spa experiences, and amazing food. There are several stunning island destinations I'd recommend, but to miss the rainy season on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, I'd suggest you head to the Langkawi archipelago. Check into Bon Ton, a simple but stylish resort, with only a few traditional thatched villas (and a pool) for a unique and exclusive experience. Your 10-day trip means you will have plenty of time to explore everything on offer in Langkawi. Why not take a cruise through the archipelago on a sailing yacht, stopping off to explore some of the more far-flung islands? Or go snorkelling in Pulau Payar Marine Par? It sounds like you're a couple of water babies, and might even like to try scuba diving. Back on dry land, there's opportunities to take cycling tours, and a canopy walk through the jungle. There's also plenty of time for spas and massages, and lazy days chilling together on the beach with a cheeky glass of champagne. Cheers!"

Vicky likes to think of herself as an action hero, travelling the world in search of adventures. She's skiied in the Arctic under the midnight sun, trekked through the jungle to meet an elephant face-to-face, and joined the crew of a Viking longship. Sometimes she even finds time to write about it.
