With Aseania Resort Langkawi strategically located within the
endlessly fascinating legendary island of Langkawi, which comprises
a group of 99 tropical islands lying off the north-western coast
of Peninsular Malaysia, about 30km from Kuala Perlis and 51km
from Kuala Kedah on the mainland, you can be sure that there will
always be something interesting to do and explore here. The island
is blessed with an intriguing heritage of fabulous myths and legends
of ogres and gigantic birds, warriors and fairy princesses, battles
Local folklore has it that Langkawi derived its name from the
eagle or "helang" as it is known in the Malay language.
"Lang" for short and in old Malay, "kawi"
denotes reddish brown; hence, Langkawi simply means reddish brown
eagle. Where once a group of 99 islands lay under a curse of a
wrongly accused princess, there is today a new beginning, a new
light, and as result a new budding and thriving holiday hideaway.
The Langkawi you see today has been transformed almost beyond
recognition. This is the legendary island where now major international
businessmen meet to form new ventures and conclude deals whilst
relaxing. The curse that lasted for seven generations can surely
be said to have been lifted.
The best known legend of Langkawi is of Mahsuri, a pretty maiden
who lived some 200 years ago. She died under tragic circumstances
for a crime she did not commit. She died a victim of a conspiracy
plotted against her out of jealousy for her magnetic personality.
She was accused of committing adultery and was sentenced to death
by the Chief of Langkawi, Dato Karma Jaya, her own father-in-law.
As the legend goes, Mahsuri was the object of envy, of the village
headman's wife Wan Mahora. She accused Mahsuri of adultery with
a handsome minstrel visiting the island while Mahsuri's husband,
Wan Darus, was away. As proof of her innocence, some people say,
white blood was seen gushing out of her wound during execution.
Others maintain there was the sudden appearance of white mist
that enveloped the spot where she was executed, which it was believed
was a sign of mourning of her innocence. Mahsuri is best remembered
for her curse on Langkawi which was uttered before she died. She
had said, "For this act of injustice Langkawi shall not prosper
for seven generations to come." Decades after Mahsuri's death,
Langkawi experienced a period of tribulation with her population
dwindling in size. The island became a desolate place, beset by
series of misfortunes. It was not able to regain its splendour
for a long period of time. The curse, believed to have brought
destruction and doom to the island and was to last for seven generations,
lifted only after the birth of Wan Aishah.
Tasik Dayang Bunting is a fresh water lake on the island of Dayang
Bunting, the second largest in the Langkawi archipelago, easily
accessible from Aseania Resort Langkawi. There appears to be several
versions of the Dayang Bunting legend. One version has it that
Dayang Bunting was a giant guardian spirit that kept watch over
the islands. The lady's defenses include her pet lion and poison
from the tuba root, potent weapons for her protection. Hence,
the two islands closest to Pulau Dayang Bunting, whose silhoutte
resembles that of a reclined pregnant giant, are named Pulau Singa
Besar (Great Lion Island) and Pulau Tuba (Poisonous Root Island).
The story goes that, a group of rude merchants failed to pay the
obligatory respects to Dayang Bunting as they passed by the islands.
Rudely awakened by the intrusion, she summoned her pet lion to
despatch the trespassers. She roused the spirits of wind and water,
stirring up a tropical storm that unleashed its fury on the incoming
fleet of sailors.
Located in the north-western corner of Pulau Langkawi and easily
accessible from Aseania Resort Langkawi, Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells)
is a geological marvel. The waterfall is so named because its
cascading waters is broken by a series of seven natural pools.
The lush green forest that surrounds the waterfall adds a mystical
touch to the natural splendour. Legend has it that fairies used
to come down to the waterfall to bathe and frolic.
Kampung Buku Malaysia is the first and only book village in South-east
Asia. It is part of the International Book Villages and Book Towns
Movement. It is located just 10 minutes from the Langkawi International
Airport and 15 minutes from the Ferry Terminal, and is very easily
accessible from Aseania Resort Langkawi. Situated amidst a lush
green frost at the foot of Gunung Raya, the highest peak on the
island, the book village provides book lovers a tranquil setting
to indulge in their hobby.
Dataran Lang is Langkawi's most prominent landmark for visitors
arriving by sea. According to local folklore, Langkawi derived
its name from an eagle. Langkawi translated into English is reddish
brown eagle. The square is beautifully illuminated at night and
presents a dramatic scene as you approach the island by sea.
Taman Buaya Langkawi ( Langkawi Crocodile Farm) located at Kubang
Badak, some 32 km from Kuah and accessible from Aseania Resort
Langkawi by car, has more than 1000 crocodiles of various species.
Here one can witness and photograph crocodiles and alligators
playing and feeding in a controlled environment that closely resemble
their natural habitat.
