Kayu Puti at The
St. Regis Langkawi
makes full use of its
unique location on
the Andaman Sea,
serving an East-meets-West menu full of local lobster, fish,
prawn, and fruits.
Not only is Langkawi located along one of the region’s
most historically important trade routes, the Straits of Malacca, it also has a designated UNESCO Global Geopark,
one of only a handful in Southeast Asia.
Coral reef conservation — At The Andaman, a Luxury
Collection Resort, Langkawi, groups can take guided
tours of the on-property reef and help clear away dead
coral to encourage regrowth.
Sunset cruises — After a long day of meetings, treat the
group to an evening sail through the Straits of Malacca.
Depart from the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club, whose on-site restaurant and pick-up and drop-off service makes
the process seamless for groups.
Dinner in a rainforest — Dine in a rainforest (minus the
creepy crawlies) at the LICC, where a team can artfully
recreate the local tropical environment with lush foliage,
the chirping of birds, and even a jungle-inspired menu.
