Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah, is an archipelago of 99 tropical islands 30km off the west coast of Malaysia.

These islands are renowned for their untouched beauty, dramatic landscapes, serene elegance, and as a sophisticated vacation destination.

The Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) has identified two unique locations for development, and has granted Pekan Artisan an 80 year renewable lease on both sites. Pekan Artisan is the Malaysian based sister-company to Artisan Design.

Pekan Artisan, and our dynamic partnership team, has designed a series of eco experiences, gardens and hotels, offering back to nature experiences, and paying homage to Langkawi’s unique culture and environment.
