CULINARY SPIRIT NIGHTS
AT THE DATAI LANGKAWI
By Kamila Delart
Boasting two award-wining restaurants, the Gulai House famous for authentic Malay and Indian cuisine and The Pavilion that has been repeatedly celebrated by the Malaysian Tatler for its exquisite Thai cuisine, The Datai Langkawi just added new culinary highlights that make the dining experience at the iconic resort truly outstanding!
Recently launched, the themed 'Spirit Nights' take discerning diners on a sensory journey that goes far beyond a gastronomic experience.
Overlooking the Andaman Sea with dreamy silhouettes of the THAI 'Tarutao Islands' on the horizon, The Dining Room and the grand platform around the quiet pool lure on Saturday evenings with the 'SPIRIT OF SIAM'. Dressed in red costumes embellished with gold ornaments as traditionally worn at the Royal Thai Palace, the waiting staff welcomes guests with a glass of chilled champagne.

PRESS RELEASE - Langkawi (Dec 26 2014)
In a spirit of sharing and giving during Christmas, Frangipani Hotels & Resorts Sdn Bhd presented RM15,000 to newly-formed
Langkawi Inclusive Community Outreach Foundation (LICOF)
on Christmas Eve.
LICOF was formed on January 16 this year with a mission to identify Persons With Disabilities (PWD) in Langkawi and to make them inclusive in society. LICOF’s chairman Prof Dato’ Dr Zaliha Omar, who is also a renowned rehabilitation consultant, said LICOF had identified at least 20 PWD who are registered with the Langkawi Welfare Department, out of which six were physically and mentally fit to be absorbed into a pilot project by LICOF to get them involved in various social enterprises to help them earn an income for themselves.
TIME TRAVELER’S MASSAGE
By Kamila Delart
Struggling with jetlag? Rather than waiting for the unpleasant symptoms to pass while wasting a precious time of your holiday, treat yourself to a Time Traveler’s Massage!
Harnessing the healing power of pure essential oils and embracing the ancient art of acupressure, the treatment will help your inner clock to align with the rhythm of the present location, liberating you from exhaustion, insomnia, and mood swings that typically occur after a long haul flight.
ARMS = Artificial Reef Module System
By Kamila Delart
‘No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of a continent, a part of the main… SO NEVER ASK FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS. IT TOLLS FOR YOU…’
While written by the British poet, John Donne, nearly four hundred years ago, these inspiring words have never been more relevant than today! A wonderful example what a difference people can make when united by a common goal is the LANGKAWI ARMS PROJECT that was launched at the beginning of December at THE ANDAMAN, A LUXURY COLLECTION RESORT situated on the northwest tip of Langkawi.
ARIRANT KOREAN RESTAURANT
Telaga Harbour Park
Tel: +6 012 - 420 0219
Operating Hours: 11am - 10.30pm
Situated at the peaceful Telaga Harbour, on the first floor above Golden Wok, the newly open restaurant lures with enchanting marina views with white sails of luxury yachts proudly glistening against the azure blue Andaman Sea.

THE JOURNEY TO A BALANCED LIFE
By Kamila Delart
My visits to the Geo Spa at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi became over the last four years a rather meaningful ritual to me. A time when I step back, lose myself in contemplation and become aware of what I need in life to feel whole and in tune with who I am.
If you associate a Spa experience with a little bit of pampering or the relief of muscular tension, you may have a hard time to relate to my statement. But then - you probably haven’t been to The Geo Spa yet.

Langkawi is a place of 'Healers': Sophisticated SPAs care not only for your body - but speak also to your Soul. Special Massages, Acupuncture, Yoga Schools, Meditation and Reiki are just a few of the disciplines where these 'Langkawi Healers' can be found - most of them working in a modest way - without mentioning the miracles they achieve...
Langkawi is also home to ROOT HEALING - a new technique that 'speaks to your body' (www.roothealing.org). Its latest 'Healing Project' are the
'LANGKAWI HEALING EXERCISES' - which are being edited at the time.
The first of these Exercises (there will be a new one every few weeks) has already been published. It is called:
Yawn it All Out !
It contains background information about what 'Yawning really is' - why it is good for you and how you can consciously use it.
