About the Langkawi Gazette
Established in 2008, Langkawi Gazette was originally set up as a community platform. Developing her own dynamics, the site turned over time into Langkawi’s leading online magazine. Featuring Resort, Adventure, Spa, Restaurant, Shopping and Marine Guides, it is the most complex source of information about our island - attracting depending on season 12.000 to 16.000 readers monthly (July 2014).
Whether you are a traveler planning a trip to Langkawi, or a local or expat eager to stay abreast of the island’s new developments & happenings - we do our best to keep Langkawi Gazette authentic, relevant and up-to-date while providing the island’s entrepreneurs with a platform to feature their businesses.
Building a bridge between Langkawians and travelers from all over the world - we hope our online magazine makes a difference! If you have any suggestions how to further develop our website so that it serves you even better - we would love to hear from you!
You can use Facebook to communicate to us -
Enjoy your holiday stay, and if a resident - take a moment to appreciate the mesmerizing beauty we are all surrounded by :-) .
Mark & Kamila
After having lived on a big old Sailing Yacht, a 52 ft Cat for 7 years, and the last 4 years on a beach of langkawi, I finally settled down on this island.
This was 2008.
So what to do – la?
What project could I work on that would be beneficial for the whole Island?
Then, I remembered the time when I changed the engines on my boat and tried to find someone who was interested in buying the old ones. I had to go and find the notice boards at the Yacht Club, the Pier Restaurant and Telaga Harbour. I should have gone to Rebak Marina too, but I was too lazy. I said to myself: "Why is it that this Island doesn not have a single communication tool?". That was when the idea of this website was born.

They say, there are no coincidences - and looking back at the last three years, I cannot help but agree.
Offered a Wellness Director position at one of the 5* Resorts, I had to google Langkawi - not even aware this island existed. Not that it really mattered as a career in the hospitality industry is a looong chain of short stunts and as you keep moving on, the destinations begin to blend into one another. Or that’s at least the theory :-).
Shortly before landing, I got a glimpse of the Langkawi Archipelago: Emerald green Andaman Sea strewn with tiny deserted islands. A mesmerizing view! And most likely the very moment I fell in love with our magical island…
