Luxury holidays to Malaysia

This fabulous country’s tourist chiefs were no doubt delighted when they coined the phrase: Malaysia Simply Asia. But for us, it doesn’t begin to capture the allure of holidays in Malaysia. It is one of our favourite holiday destinations. When we think of Malaysia, we prefer: Simply irresistible.

Our travels bring us back here time and time again. Why? Because this rainbow nation – Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in harmony – never fails to amaze us with its kaleidoscopic diversity and laid-back philosophy.

On a  Malaysia holiday, the food, the service and the efficiency are so addictive – and the stress-busting relaxation so complete – that we keep finding ourselves going back for just a few more days in Malaysia holiday destinations: the sheer buzz of Kuala Lumpur, the culture and cuisine in funky Penang, followed by blissful indulgence on the to-die-for beaches of  the Langkawi archipelago.

If Carlsberg did holidays, they would look like this…

Holidays in Malaysia assault the senses with such a heady cocktail of unique sounds, evocative smells and dizzying sights, it will leave even the most jaded traveller astounded. The combination of old colonial decadence in Penang with unadulterated pleasure-seeking on the superlative beaches of Langkawi make a Malaysia holiday an essential stop on the road less travelled.

Diversity is the buzzword in Malaysia. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses on stilts, while five-star hotels sit just metres from ancient reefs. Rugged mountains assault the sky, while their slopes sweep down to floodplains teeming with forest life. In the cool highland hideaways, you eagerly anticipate pristine beaches and rich, humid mangroves below.

As always, Yonder applied its strict selection criteria to hotels in our Malaysia holiday destinations. And as a result, our list is short but sweet, with truly memorable options in both Penang and Langkawi.

Better still, for the ultimate indulgence, we can combine our core Malaysia holiday destinations with sumptuous Singapore. The world’s only island city state is renowned for its myriad attractions, from richly varied shopping opportunities to some of the world’s most celebrated hotels.
