Revel in the Magic of Monsoon at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi

Ten incredible experiences best enjoyed while it’s raining outside
Langkawi, Malaysia

As the southwest monsoon arrives in all its glory at the emerald isle of Langkawi – from oh-so-gentle drizzles to refreshing showers and majestic thunderstorms. Watch the world reawaken to new possibilities at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, sprawled across a mile-long stretch of pristine beach and cocooned by lush rainforests and mangroves. Wet mornings generally give way to clear days and cool evenings, while a brief afternoon squall promises an extra-vibrant sunset.

At Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, rain doesn’t play spoilsport – in fact, it’s welcomed as the perfect backdrop to experiences that revitalise and renew. Make the most of monsoon with these ten magical experiences, curated by the Concierge Team.

1. Rebalance in a natural sanctuary. Treatment rooms at the Geo Spa overlook green-fringed ponds and gardens, wrapping guests in nature’s embrace. Indulge in a warming Earthlight Massage, recommended for rainy season by Spa Manager Che Wan Ali. This crystal massage anchors body and mind, featuring earthy vetiver oil, Langkawi black marble and rose quartz.

2. Share a picnic by the sea. Time slows down at Rumah Ikan Fish House, situated at the remote end of the Resort beach. Enjoy a delicious old-fashioned picnic lunch at this eco-friendly retreat, gazing out at spectacular views of the rain-swept Andaman Sea.

3. Explore Langkawi at Geopark Discovery Centre. Raining outside? Why not dive into the fascinating natural history of Langkawi at the Resort’s award-winning Geopark Discovery Centre? Using immersive displays and interactive exhibits, the team guides both adults and kids through habitats as diverse as rainforests, mangroves, sea stacks and saltwater lakes.

4. Feast on Malaysian specialties. Join family and friends for a traditional feast in the home-style setting of Ikan-Ikan. Let centuries-old recipes from Malaysian villages warm the soul, while the pitter-patter of raindrops provides a soothing soundtrack. The 16-seat private dining room is ideal for groups looking for an intimate space.

5. Shaken and stirred at Rhu Bar. Head Bartender Surinder initiates guests into the mysteries of cocktail-making with a masterclass at Rhu Bar. Learn a little bit of everything – from the fundamentals of mixology, to the legends that form an essential ingredient of great cocktails.

6. Align with rain’s rhythms. Take inspiration from the rain’s nourishment of the earth to nurture body, mind and soul. Join a yoga or meditation class at Teratai Pavilion, framed by lotus-strewn ponds and sweeping ocean views, or reserve a private session in-villa.

7. Take a tongue-tickling adventure. Lesung Batu Cooking School offers a warm, dry welcome on wet days. Learn the art of Malaysian cooking at an interactive class that brings together flavours from across the region, including Malaysia, India and China.

8. Sip and savour “at home.” Whether nestled among verdant gardens or perched on the beachfront, the villas at Four Seasons offer some of the best views during rainy season. Share a breezy brunch on the outdoor terrace, or snuggle up with loved ones for a cosy meal indoors.

9. Indoor activities for kids. The complimentary Lutong Kids Club keeps young adventurers busy and happy, even during a downpour. With activities like batik painting, sea shell crafts and henna art scheduled for rainy days, it’s impossible for the kids to get bored.

10. Soak in an evening bath. Wind down the day with a warm bath, drawn by a personal Bath Butler. Choose from four therapeutic bathing rituals designed by Spa Manager Che Wan Ali, featuring the finest local products from Langkawi to calm the mind, nourish the skin and promote restfulness.
