Bon Ton Resort, Langkawi, Malaysia

LAST UPDATED: 17th September 2014 at 4:05pm

On an island filled with glitzy grandes-dames hotels, Bon Ton, and its sister resort, Temple Tree, are unique gems, with accommodation consisting of traditional Malay kampung houses, restored by Bon Ton's owner to create an atmosphere of low-key luxury.

The resort sits alongside a lagoon surrounded by palms (in fact, the entire space was built within a 100-year-old coconut plantation) and, by night, the sounds of crickets and water buffalo, heard from the comfort of your muslin-swathed four-poster, provide a hypnotic lullaby. Not a fan of getting to breakfast on time? Fear not: it will be chilled, ready and waiting for you in your fridge (bread, cakes and fruits), stowed away the night before by staff. Bon Ton excels at excursions with flair: a day on the Damai Indah, a teak schooner, cruising the Langkawi archipelago, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

WOW FACTOR The prawn and pineapple curries. No wonder Rick Stein is a fan.
