A Magical blend of Cityscapes and RainforestsDiscover a real mix of influences and customs
Once overshadowed by more well-known destinations in Southeast Asia, luxury holidays in Malaysia have become increasingly popular. With stunning rainforest scenery, sandy beaches and an eclectic mix of cultural influences, it’s no surprise that this vibrant country has captured the heart of many discerning travellers.
Our selection of upmarket Malaysian resorts provide the perfect bases from which to explore this exciting nation. Whether you’re looking for a glamorous getaway in a colonial-style city hotel, a secluded hideaway nestled deep in the forest or a romantic beachside villa, we offer a range of handpicked 5 star Malaysian hotels to choose from.
Malaysia offers visitors a unique mix of traditional and modern sights. Kuala Lumpur, the bustling capital city, is well worth a visit. Make your way around the markets of Chinatown to sample tasty street food and sip Teh Tarik - a strong, milky tea that comes highly recommended by the locals. Marvel at the architectural contrasts between the rustic wooden stilt houses and cutting-edge skyscrapers, including the iconic Menara KL telecommunications tower and the Petronas Twin Towers – the world’s tallest twin towers.
If you’re after something a little less fast-paced, take a cruise around Pulau Perhentian. Thanks to phosphorescent plankton, the sea surrounding these postcard-worthy islands literally sparkles by night. Many boat trips make an on-shore stop-off where you can soak up this magical sight next to a cosy beachside bonfire. By day, the azure waters and pearl-coloured sands make this the perfect place to unwind with a book or sip a refreshing cocktail.
For high tea with a difference, visit the verdant Cameron Highlands and sample some of the country’s most intoxicating infusions. Meanwhile, adventure-seekers can head to the Batu Caves. These stunning limestone formations can be found at one of Malaysia’s holiest Hindu sites and are great fun to explore, not least because they’re also home to troops of monkeys that will come and greet you. For more wild encounters, visit the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre for a rare chance to see conservation work in action and have a go at feeding these charismatic creatures yourself.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
