LAST MINUTE PAMPERING AT CENTURY LANGKASUKA RESORT

Scheduled to depart in the afternoon bound for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia then back to Manila, we dropped by the sister resort of Century Langkawi Beach Resort that is a kilometer-away from the Langkawi International Airport.    

We had a scheduled spa treatment hours before my flight.  But the spa treatment became just one of the activities we are to indulge ourselves into.

While being ushered to the spa center, noticeable is the infinity pool, which is an outstanding feature of the hotel, not only in terms of aesthetics and design but also of hospitality service.  Perfectly situated at the center of the hotel’s inner courtyard, guests can enjoy sunset viewing and an easy access to other amenities, such as the spa and the in-house restaurant.

Since I had a flight to catch, it was unfortunate that I wasn’t able to plunge into the waters of the infinity pool. My friends did though while they wait for their turn since I was scheduled first to enter the spa center for the treatment.

SPA TREATMENT

Six types of services are being offered, that is: Malay Traditional Mat Mon Massage, Balinese Massage, Back & Shoulder Massage, Reflexology, Body Massage and Bath and the Signature Healing Massage, which I have availed. 

The treatment lasted for 60 minutes and for half of it I snoozed.  The Signature Healing Massage is a soothing and gentle massage that allows the healing properties of the natural warm oils to penetrate into the skin leaving the guests relaxed and with a sense of pleasure.

Specially blended oils are likewise used depending on guests’ choice using a combination of strokes and acupressure technique.  For RM186, the experience was definitely worthy.

RESTAURANT

For lunch, we converged at the hotel’s in-house restaurant to feast on their specialties.  Mocktails was first in line in the name of Langkawi’s Tropical Punch (RM18), in my case. The mocktail is a concoction made of pineapple, mango and orange juice with grenadine. It was a nice refresher apt for an ambiance facing an infinity pool enveloped by the summer breeze.

Sarawak black peppercorns is famous on all corners of the world.  With that being said, the hotel’s restaurant offers a cuisine where we get to try the Sarawak pepper.  We ordered the Sarawak black pepper beef pizza (RM36).  When asked if more pepper will be sprinkled on our pizza, we gladly nodded.  And the taste? Good! Mozzarella cheese and beef tender cubes complemented well with the black pepper, not to mention that it’s not oily like other Italian pizzas.    And of course, I have to discard the chopped bell pepper, simply because I’m not used to eating such.

In another Sarawak cuisine, we ordered the Sarawak laksa (RM30).  I actually began to like laksa when the three of us tried one in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.  The locals say it’s the best version they have.  And it didn’t disappoint.  Singaporean laksa is actually good too. I can tolerate spiciness and my endless perspiration when the food is worth the try.  Century Langkasuka’s Sarawak laksa is no different.  Prawn is incontestably my favorite.  This peppery broth with vermicelli noodles and prawn of Sarawak version is easy to love as well.

One of my travel buddies is fond of noodles – of whatever type that is.  It is a default order.  It is no wonder then that in our quest to try out local cuisine, we had Foochow Noodles (RM30) in the table.  In this wok fried egg noodles that is accompanied with prawn and steamed chicken, I say the standout is the sauce, not to mention that I am for chicken.

The local version of deep fried crispy chicken wings served with sweet chili sauce (RM30) is a no-brainer order for our group.  It is an all-time favourite.

While my friends are into local cuisine, I insisted that we try one of the restaurants main dish, the Grilled Australian Striploin (RM78). For lack of words to describe, the tender meat is simply delicious.   The dish is served with a choice of either a mashed potato or French fries.  I opted for the latter.  It comes with grilled tomato and sautéed wild mushroom and a black pepper sauce.

With the different sets of cuisine that we have ordered, I am now ready to depart full and satisfied, leaving my friends temporarily, as I’ll see them again in Thailand.

It was a great send-off indeed – to be pampered for the last minutes before departure at one of the premier hotels of Langkawi Island.
