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 and romance.
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
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.

Farm) located at Kubang Badak, some 32 km from Kuah and accessible
