Padang Matsirat Activities
What to Do in Padang Matsirat
Most people who stay in this quarter of Langkawi tend to stick to island-hopping, eagle-feeding tours and sunset dinner cruises. There are more kampungs dotting the roads than exciting and intriguing activities. There is one spa – located within Langkawi Lagoon Resort – where you can enjoy a relaxing spa treatment on the open-water chalets.
That being said, Padang Matsirat is not exactly the worse place to stay – it is tranquil and situated only 15–20 minutes away from the Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah stretch. Dining venues are decidedly limited but then again with Pantai Cenang just 10 minutes away, that’s not such a bad thing as this ensures that Padang Matsirat stays a relatively undisturbed locale.
The Embun Spa is one way to while away your day unless you prefer to lounge by the sand and sea. Located in seven units of the Langkawi Lagoon Resort, the spa utilizes a traditional blend of local herbs and spices together with Malay massage techniques. Try the body scrub and wrap and the fresh fruit mask facial.
