spa at the Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa has become a member of the Starwood Spa Collection,
one of the world’s largest collections of premier spas. The Starwood Spa Collection is comprised of 59 hotels and resorts from all corners of

“We are truly inspired by the sheer breadth and quality of hotel spas that our collection now represents,” said Mia Kyricos, Director of Spa
for Starwood Hotels & Resorts, “and with the addition of The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa, we continue to expand our family of
prestigious spa properties around the world.”
The inspiration for each member of the Starwood Spa Collection is “The Seven Pillars of Well-Being”. While guests can expect a
comprehensive offering of spa services from each member in the Collection, no one experience will be like the other. Instead, the Starwood
Spa Collection celebrates cultural differences and provides spa enthusiasts with boundless travel choices to fulfill their personal quests for
well-being. The Seven Pillars of Well-Being philosophy that distinguishes each member of The Starwood Spa Collection are:
• Beauty – A celebration of inner and outer beauty
• Life Balance – Mind and body in peaceful symmetry
• Harmony – Achieving an inner peace where all the senses balance in harmony
• Aqua - Water – the source of life and the heart of the spa experience
• Vitality – Heightened energy and vigor – expanding your fitness horizon
• Nature – Centers the mind, body and spirit with earthly elements
• Nutrition – Healthy nourishment for the mind and body
These elements serve as the benchmark for the treatments and services available throughout The Starwood Spa Collection. One example is
the collection of ‘Langka Spa Journeys’, the most memorable in The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa. Each of these signature treatments
reflects the essence of Langkawi with local ingredients including Black Rice, Aloe Vera, Coconut Milk, Herbs and Spices. The ‘Mystical
Mahsuri’, for example, honors the legend of the birth of Mahsuri and is made with luxurious oils.
For the ultimate experience take the ‘Mahsuri & Darus Romance’ in one of the treatment rooms at the Heavenly Spa Villa that is a private
beachfront property specially reserved for couples. This treatment honors the legend of the love affair between Mahsuri a beautiful maiden
and Darus, warrior and the son of the headman of the village and Chief of Langkawi. The three-hour experience includes a vigorous soap
scrub that is given upon a stunning outdoor heated marble plinth inspired by the Turkish Hammam tradition. Included are sensual soaks
made with fragrant flowers of Water Lily and Hibiscus and the Mahsuri Massage that is a strong yet soothing
warrior style massage that comprises of traditional martial arts techniques.
