Four Seasons Rhu Bar Langkawi


Rhu Bar at Four Seasons, Langkawi




Rhu Bar at the Four Seasons Resort in Langkawi is one of those places everyone dreams about for that perfect holiday lounging on a day bed sipping cocktails and watching the sunset over the Andaman Sea. Located at Tanjung Rhu in Langkawi Island, Malaysia - this is one exclusive resort that not many people get a chance to visit unless you have deep pockets. The architecture is an amazing mix of Asian, Indian and Arabic and when you step inside, you will feel as if you are in a different part of the world.

Rhu Bar - Main entrance

The Rhu Bar is located in a stand alone building at the Four Seasons and is one of the most beautiful lounges I have ever been to. Based on a rich Middle Eastern design and architecture, this place is also known as the 'Arabian Knights' lounge.

Rhu Bar - Outside seating

Sitting around the Rhu Bar will remind you of Aladdin as almost every detail is perfect when looking around. The rich colours, textures and large glowing fire lamps add a beautiful mood especially in the evenings for romantic couples. Once the sun goes down here, you will see the place come alive with amazing colours. The Asian fusion chill out music played will also compliment your evening therefor a memorable experience if you are having a honeymoon or romantic holiday here.

A huge Mogul hanging swing

The Mogul Hanging Swings are not to be missed as these huge wooden swings complimented with colourful cushions and suspended by steel cables can easily sit four people on them. One of the highlights of the Mogul swing is experiencing a Langkawi sunset with a cocktail while gently swinging here. The main swing which is above the beach sand facing the sea would be the ultimate spot to enjoy that picture perfect evening.

Interior of the Rhu Bar

Inside the Rhu Bar, the Middle Eastern ambiance gets much stronger with intricate designed wall dividers sectioning off areas of the lounge. There are colourful cushions stacked on top of wicker sofas and they look perfectly placed for your comfort. Flowering orchids are placed strategically around the bar which gives the place even more colour and life.

Middle Eastern feel

For afternoon tea, local kueh (Asian snacks) is served with a variety of teas, from imported, local and even herbal teas. You can also opt for the unique meze menu they have. Some of the desserts available are "Genovese Di Pesca E Polenta Con Gelato Alla Mandorla" – Peach Upside -Down Cake with Almond Ice Cream and "Cannoli Alla Siciliana Con Composta Di Ciliege" – Ricotta-Cheese-Filled Sicilian Cannoli with Cherry Compote.

Some of the snacks available would be Pita and Papadom Chips with Hummus and Cucumber Raita and also the Lollipop Chicken with Chili Sauce. These snacks and desserts are available from 3 pm to 12 midnight.

Mogul Swings - The best spot to sunset watch

For after dinner drinks, the bar carries uniquely designed cocktails which are house specials and also old favourites. They have a selection of lagers for the beer lovers and specialty malts for the whiskey drinker. Do try the house specialty called 'Sunset At Rhu' while enjoying the view of the sun going down the Andaman Sea.

Rhu Bar Wine selection

The wine list here is also very impressive and extensive with an outstanding collection to suite your taste in red or white and many other wines. Not forgetting they also have a great selection of Champagnes available. A pool table in one of the sectioned rooms for guest who want to shoot some pool there.

Entrance from Serai Restaurant

Finally, nothing completes your holiday at the Four Seasons without spending a beautiful evening at the Rhu Bar sipping cocktails or having a bottle of wine and enjoying the sunset. The perfect honeymoon place I would call this. To top it off, when you walk into this place, the servers already know your name and you would be stunned when they greet you by name.

On a side note, the place is pretty quiet and peaceful. You will not see running kids or local family's taking loudly here as the Four Seasons is not a typical holiday resort.

Prices start from an amazing RM1,850.00 (US$530.00) per couple for the cheapest room while the Royal Villa goes at RM20,460 (US$5,845). The beauty about this is that the rates are only for the room or villas. Everything else is charged. Example, breakfast is charged and so on.

Cocktail hours are from 3.00 PM till 12 Midnight

Rhu Bar is located just next to Serai Restaurant at Four Seasons Langkawi.

If you are staying here, you should not miss this place at all cost. If you are visiting, then proceed to the Rhu Bar via the main entrance of the Four Seasons Langkawi. Most likely the reception or greeters will stop you and ask you where you would like to go, so tell them - The Rhu Bar.
