Stiff back, sore neck. Puffy eyes, parched skin. When you’ve worked hard and stretched your limits, make time to stretch physically and refill your wellness meter. For a fuss-free getaway, check into one of these beach-side Marriot Bonvoy resorts with an excellent spa. And if you’re unable to travel interstate just yet (‘coz CMCO), start planning now to get going once the borders open up again.

The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa is home to Malaysia’s first Heavenly Spa By Westin™, a symbiotic homage to the island’s beauty and warmth. Each spa treatment is designed to engage and awaken all seven of your senses. That’s right, seven! These are the five physical senses of sight, sound, touch, taste, and scent, as well as the psychological senses of emotion and meaning.

You’ll be in good hands with wellness offerings derived from Malay, Ayurveda, Turkish, Swedish, and Indonesian massage traditions. Your journey to utter relaxation is complete with Heavenly Bath—a transformative spa experience in each of the nine treatment rooms with oversized luxurious towels, plush robes and showerheads.
