Langkawi makes a great weekend staycation when you are looking for a getaway from city life. The island is known for its beaches, islets, nature and duty-free status, which makes it a great holiday destination in Malaysia for all sorts of holiday-makers from sun loungers to adventurous nature lovers.

To make sure you enjoy the best of the island during your staycation, picking a hotel in a strategic location is important to minimise your travelling times. Casa del Mar Langkawi, at Pantai Cenang is a boutique hotel in Langkawi to station yourselves, with its proximity to the airport and key areas to visit.

If you are looking to spend 48 hours in Langkawi, here’s how you can discover and experience it in two days.

Day 1

After checking in at Casa del Mar Langkawi, take a 30 minute car ride to the Langkawi Cable Car where you can see the most of Langkawi in the shortest time. The 2.2 kilometre-long ride will carry you to the top of Mount Mat Cinchang.

While at the peak, take a walk along the 125-metre-long Langkawi Sky Bridge where you get a bird’s eye view of an unobstructed view of the many islands of Langkawi on one side, and islands of Thailand on the other.

If you’re feeling up for a little adventure, head on towards the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls (Seven Wells Waterfalls) made up of a series of seven connected natural pools fed by seven separate waterfalls. Expect to hike 45 minutes to an hour along a trail with more than 600 steps, but you will be rewarded with the views of Burau Bay and Pantai Kok at the top of the falls.

Return to Pantai Cenang in the evening and unwind on the beanbags at one of the beach bars with a drink and lounge to live music until late.

Day 2

Wake up to a delectable breakfast at Casa del Mar Langkawi to fuel your day before heading out to the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park. Join a guided tour that will take you on a river cruise down the mangrove swamp, limestone caves and formations millions of years old. The adventurous ones can opt to kayak instead, enjoy a different experience kayaking through the mangrove swamps. Just be sure to put on plenty of sunscreen!

After exploring nature, return to the hotel and relax by the pool or beach. In Casa del Mar Langkawi’s case, you get to enjoy the best of both since the hotel is located beachfront! You can also opt for a pampering session at Satkara Spa, and allow the masseur to knead your knots and stresses away.
