Five Star Resort in Langkawi with RMCO Promotions

Langkawi Resort Promotions for RMCO

Malaysia has been hit really bad in the tourism sector and since the RMCO in Malaysia was issued on the 9th of June 2020, Malaysians can now start travelling domestically as part of the Cuti Cuti Malaysia campaign to help boost our local tourism economy.

Since the 18th of March, most Malaysians have been locked up in their homes under the Movement Control Order or MCO and this came as a huge shock to many. The MCO was then followed by the CMCO which was a conditional order, and this too did not allow most people to travel due to the interstate travel bans. 

At the end of three months, the built-up desire to travel anywhere became an urge with many people just waiting for the Malaysian government to lift the travel restrictions.

And the good news came in early June when the CMCO was changed to the RMCO or recovery order which lifted the interstate travel ban on the 9th of June, 2020.

Now, Malaysians are travelling around the country while many are also seeking an island retreat to release some of the frustrations of being locked down in their homes for almost 100 days.

One of the desired destinations to explore for a beach vacation is no other than Langkawi Island, which is located in the North of Malaysia and only a 40-minute flight from Kuala Lumpur.

But choosing the right resort is also crucial for many as many categories are ranging from ultra-luxury to family-friendly places and this time around, I will be focusing on the best of both worlds for just one highly-recommended resort.

This simply means that the resort meets the demands of those seeking a little luxury and yet being able to afford it with your loved ones or family.

The Tanjung Rhu Resort is one of these places where the famous and warm Malaysian hospitality will greet visitors the minute you step in.

Located at probably the most beautiful beach in all of Langkawi Island, the property sits on its own piece of land that stretches over 200 acres and away from other properties. This simply means that you will experience privacy at its best.

With the Coronavirus or Covid19 affecting everyone in the hotel and travel industry, Tanjung Rhu Resort is also one of them, but with creative thinking, the management has come up with their own RMCO promotions for Malaysians and those who have permanent residencies here.

Before I get to what is being offered in terms of promotions, let me just share with you why I like staying at the Tanjung Rhu Resort.

And for your added information, I have been a regular visitor to Langkawi in the last decade where I have stayed at numerous properties all over the island. But at the end of the day, one of them has become my favourite resort.

Why I Like Tanjung Rhu Resort?

The golden question is why I like staying here and the truth be told, it is the seclusion and professionalism of this property that reminds me of what an island getaway is all about. 

Some of you may know that Tanjung Rhu Resort has been around for over 20 years, and till this very day, it still manages to impress most visitors with its unique location, beautiful landscapes, warm hospitality and overall simplicity without trying too hard.

Some 5-star resorts are seen to try too hard to impress guests and often, that takes away the natural warmth of the resort. Some are too easy-going where they end up being just like a 3-star hotel and some are just located in the wrong place.

There are a lot of factors involved when selecting a place for your vacation, and to me, the idea of having my own private space without overcrowding is very important. 

For me, the view also plays an important role while the facilities are secondary. For more reasons why I like this place, you can also read my Tanjung Rhu Resort review I did in 2019.

Among all, the landscape and natural environment is utmost important without unnatural disturbances and over here, you have a whopping 1000 plus acres of land to explore. This includes acres of mangroves, beach forest and of course, kilometres of white-sandy beaches. 

I would not be relaxed at a place where kids are screaming and running around or people are talking at the top of their voices without care of others around them. I know for a fact that many of you will have encountered these kinds of situations which tend to dampen your holiday spirits.

Therefore, if you have been travelling to many islands and resorts, you would most likely fall into my kind of travel category - relaxed, no stress, some privacy, great views and warm hospitality.
