Unobtrusively elegant, Malaysia plays host to a hypnotic blend of contrasts. A place where traditional wooden longhouses rub shoulders with skyscrapers that light up the stratosphere and dense humid jungle terrains meet the cooling breezes of misty highlands and beaches dipped into the ocean; a luxury holiday in Malaysia is nothing like what you would expect and home to a diversity that cannot fail to astound.

Malaysia Highlights

Malaysia will surprise you. From the highs of the breezy mountains to the exotic marine life in the depths of its seas, in between Malaysia offers sun-kissed beaches, unchartered jungles and a national cuisine that’s utterly extraordinary.

Luxury Holidays in Malaysia


The scent of frying bean sprouts in the night markets of Ipoh; the mist-soaked rainforest boardwalks of Pahang; climbing the rainbow-coloured steps of the Batu Caves. Malaysia is vibrant, enriching, and powerfully tranquil. From spice gardens to the eclectic culture of Kuala Lumpur, there is much to enjoy about this varied archipelago on the South China Sea.

Private Tours in Malaysia


One of the best ways to experience the tranquil diversity of Malaysia is by private tour, where your guide will introduce not only to the orangutans of Borneo and the blissful beaches of Langkawi, but also those places untouched by the crowds; collecting your thoughts among the tea plantations and strawberry fields of the Cameron Highlands, and stepping back in time in the Old Town of Ipoh. Delicate cups of Ipoh White Coffee are not to be missed.

Best Hotels in Malaysia


From highlands to islands, villages to cities, Malaysia has a stunning array of luxury hotels and resorts in which to rest your head. The Four Seasons will delight and indulge you, while the verdant Japamala Resort on Tioman Island will make you feel as free as a, well, orangutan. The pace of life is just that tranquil, here.

Luxury Honeymoons in Malaysia


Glimpsing the blue-dark triangular mountains of the highlands, shrouded in mist; or tentatively watching the languid orangutans through the trees – Malaysia is romantic, heady, and like nowhere else on earth. Whether you feel like setting down on private beaches or wandering the night markets in search of mouth-watering roti tisu, Malaysia is a natural choice for an adventurous, albeit relaxing, luxury honeymoon.

Luxury Vacations in Malaysia


Never far from an emerald green branch or the languid paw of a resting orangutan, the hotels of Malaysia offer superb, verdant locations, chic design, and truly modern service right in the beating heart of things. Forget queues and cars. This is all about palm leaves and lapping waves.

The magical island of Penang - on the Northwest coast of Malaysia - is tropical, timeless, and teetering between old-world grandeur and modern convenience. A sanctuary away from the sanctuary, the luxury of the Seven Terraces hotel will not disappoint those looking to treat themselves to miles of unspoilt sand and balmy days.


The Four Seasons Resort at Langkawi has a unique allure. Gourmet cuisine, refined style, and a verdant canopy of trees - it is, after all, located on the sandy fringes of a UNESCO Geopark - make for an extraordinarily luxury getaway.

‘It’s in the trees!’ is not, ordinarily, an exclamation of joy. In the case of the secluded and laidback Japamala Resort on the secluded Tioman Island, however, it is a statement of beautiful fact. The luxe but rustic design of these villas among the trees, and on the fringes of sea and sand, make for a perfect honeymoon getaway. It is such a struggle, to leave.
