Heavenly Spa By Westin @ The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa



A holiday anywhere is pretty much not complete unless one spends some time in the spa. And if the spa happens to be an award winning one, then the more reasons to ensure that a visit to the spa is a big must like our stay at the Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa.

The Heavenly Spa is totally serene. One one side is the greenery and the other is the beach. Perfect for one to check in to ease the knots away and rejuvenate the soul. And since it was a getaway for both the hubster and I, we ended our spa therapy with a romantic dinner by the beach beside the spa. I would certainly recommend that couple check out the Spa by Night!  

The menu at the Heavenly Spa is quite varied and each treatment has its own plus points. Take your pick from treatments derived from Malay, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Turkish, Swedish and Indonesian modalities. There are also therapeutic anti aging facials, body exfoliations, foot and bathing rituals and an extensive choice of global massages. 

The moment one steps into the Heavenly Spa, you start relaxing and chilling. A warm towel and a lovely lemongrass tea awaits you while you fill up the necessary paperwork for your therapist to know you better and to run you through the many possible treatment options. We opted for the Heavenly Massage (RM360 per person).
The rooms are clean, quiet and lights are dimmed with a relaxing soft spa music in the background. Our pampering session begins with a warming herbal pouch is applied to the back. The warm pouch eases off the tension and relaxes the muscles before an aromatherapy massage follows with the therapist works at releasing the knots and tight spots in the body. Each move is so therapeutic and relaxing that the hubster and I basically slept through our massage. We woke up feeling refreshed and certainly rejuvenated with a new energy level within us. 



To complete the pampering and also for a lil bit of 'our time', we moved on from the therapy room to the outdoor area for our Spa by Night @ RM195 per person. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves as we watched the skies turn orange then dark. The night is then lighted up only by the candle lights on our table and some discreetly placed lights.

A waiter was assigned to us and it was marvellous how service was apt and did not disrupt the romantic ambiance. I must admit that I was really famished after the massage (of which the hubster noted that its been more than 4 hours since my last meal so technically its an hour pass my usual "feeding" time. LOL). The simple 3 course dinner is absolutely healthy, delicious and paired with wine...there is nothing that a girl should and can complain!

Spa by Night menu:
• Lemon dill cured sea bass with curry vinaigrette, harissa marinated calamari and cucumber onion salad.
• 
Combination of grilled garlic prawns, sea bass and curried scallops, served with baked potato, charbroiled root vegetables and finished with a ginger beurre blanc.
• Combination of green tea and passion fruit crème brûlée.


Dinner ended but we sat on to enjoy the cool evening breeze and chatted over our wines. We could have opted for the buggy ride back to our room but a walk by the beach back to our room was our preferred choice. 

The entire experience at the Heavenly Spa including the Spa by Night is certainly very memorable and amazing. And this certainly isn't a surprise to me when I read that the Heavenly Spa by Westin at the Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa was announced as the country winner for the “Best Luxury Resort Spa” in the 2014 World Luxury Spa Awards. In fact its the fourth win in 4 consecutive years since 2011.
