When life gets tough, it's always a good idea to hit reset with a good vacation.

And, it's even better if you're somewhere surrounded by nature. <3

If you're looking for a getaway while staying on a budget, Langkawi is a perfect location, since it's a duty-free island too! 

Despite being a small island, Langkawi offers some of mother nature's best works. You can admire lush, green paddy fields, stunning limestone formations, and mangrove swaps, as well as enjoy your time on a bunch of beautiful beaches. 

Looking for ways to unwind in Langkawi? Here are three things you can do to kick-start your nature-filled vacation:

1. Head out for a day of island-hopping

Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea. So, if you want a chance to explore the wonders of Langkawi, island hopping is a must-do activity while you're there.

You can hire a private boat or share a ride with other tourists to visit islands like the Lake of Pregnant Maiden, Wet Rice Island, and Big Lion Island. Some of the activities you can do while you're there include swimming, paddle boating, snorkelling, and watching an eagle-feeding show.

Usually, you would need to get up early to catch a ride at the jetty, depending on how far away you live. But, those who stay at Resorts World Langkawi can sleep in a little more since they can board the island-hopping boats at the resort's private marina — convenient, plus, you can save time too!

2. Enjoy a beautiful golden hour glow and sunset BBQ dinner cruise

Ever wanted to experience what it's like to be on a yacht? Now, you can spend some quality time with your partner as you cruise along the Langkawi waters while enjoying a delicious BBQ dinner cooked right in front of you.

Plus, you can even take some Instagrammable pictures with the sunset as your beautiful backdrop. If you're lucky, you'll be able to catch a glimpse of spinner dolphins and flying fish during the cruise experience.

If you stay at Resorts World Langkawi, it will be super convenient for you as they have a private marina that has cruise packages with Tropical Charters and Crystal Yacht.

3. Take a cable car up to Mount Machinchang and enjoy a panoramic view of Langkawi

The Langkawi SkyCab cable car ride will bring you 708 metres above sea level, where you'll be able to see stunning views of the towering Mount Manchinchang and a peek at the entire archipelago. Psst... If you're a dare-devil, you can opt for the glass-bottom floor gondola. 

Since it's located in Oriental Village, you'll be able to pay a visit to some nearby attractions like the SkyDome, SkyRex, and 3D Art Museum. 

Looking for a place to stay during your island escapade?

Resorts World Langkawi is an ideal choice, where you can enjoy a serene sea view from your room, dine at alfresco-style restaurants, and take part in a bunch of island activities.

Conveniently located just minutes away from the heart of the city, Resorts World Langkawi is a value-for-money seaside resort overlooking Langkawi's UNESCO Global Geopark and The Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest. So, it's no surprise that you are guaranteed a spectacular view. Plus, the resort has also gained the Muslim Friendly Accommodation Recognition (MFAR). 

It's the perfect place to stay if you're looking to be away from the town and typical touristy areas. You can also take a walk and catch a glimpse of gorgeous yachts parked at Resorts World Langkawi's private marina, which is also where you'll go for the sunset dinner cruise.

The hotel is 15 minutes away from the airport and 10 minutes from Cenang Beach, which is a happening night spot with bars as well as clothing stalls and souvenir shops.

Resorts World Langkawi also offers a bunch of activities like jungle trekking, bicycle rides, island tours, and many more. If you want to take a dip, you can enjoy their infinity pool with mesmerising views of the waters and surrounding greenery.  

Their signature suite has a resort-inspired interior and is very spacious, ideal for both families and couples looking to spend some quality time together.
