Langkawi’s recognition as one of the best islands in Southeast Asia will be a driving factor to consider the best resort in Langkawi as a traveller’s next island getaway. Therefore, lodgings like Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa will be able to anticipate increasing bookings by international travellers. The recognition was a reward for the island’s tireless efforts in standing resilient in the face of the pandemic and its challenges which took a great toll on tourist arrivals.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of the Langkawi Development Authority (Lada), Nasaruddin Abdul Muttalib, Lada played a major role in Langkawi’s placement as a world-class tourist destination. As Langkawi hopes that more tourist arrivals will benefit the growth in the economy and local communities, the island focuses on four main components in achieving this; namely, Leisure Tourism, Meetings, Incentives, Conferences And Exhibitions (MICE) And Tourism Events.
