The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa
Langkawi is always a good choice for a family break with its wide variety of accommodation and beautiful beaches. While many hotels here can be almost too chic to bring the children, it’s nice to have the occasional indulgence. The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa is walking distance from the town of Kuah, has four pools and has access to a lovely private beach. The most unique option is the Ocean Rock Pool, landscaped with boulders spouting water and surrounded by greenery. The infinity and spa pools are more suited for older kids and parents, but there is also a dedicated children’s pool. While there aren’t any gimmicky water toys around, the kids will have a good time the old fashioned way – playing, hitting the beach and maybe awakening their dormant imaginations!
