Welcome to a journey with Resorts World, where you'll discover how culture and comfort coalesce into unforgettable experiences.

For the explorative traveller, guided tours are available and offer a deeper insight into this rich tapestry of culture.


Resorts World Langkawi: Journey through Myths and Time

On the island of Langkawi, Resorts World Langkawi serves as your gateway to a realm where legends and history weave a ravelled narrative, accessible within minutes from your luxurious stay. Consider the mystifying allure of Mahsuri's Tomb. This isn't just a historical site; it's a passionate journey through the legend of Mahsuri – a virtuous maiden whose tale of betrayal and a lasting curse has been etched into the collective memory of the island. Resorts World Langkawi is situated just 20 minutes away from this legendary site. As you wander through the museum, peruse informative plaques and marvel at ancient artefacts like farming tools and weaponry, you'll find yourself drawn into the fabric of the island's rich past. Even the well adjacent to the tomb beckons with its purported healing properties, adding another layer of mysticism to your vacation.

If the emotional and historical weight of Mahsuri's Tomb wasn’t compelling enough, Resorts World Langkawi offers you the convenience of proximity to another historic wonder – the Field of Burnt Rice. This isn't just any paddy field but a dramatic tableau narrating the resilience of local villagers, believed to be a result of the curse uttered by Mahsuri . In the face of an invasion by Siamese forces, they chose to burn their sustenance rather than to submit. Here, the ground itself tells stories of sacrifice and defiance. The experience is deepened by the opportunity to admire traditional Malay architecture and to browse souvenirs such as batik, sarong and handicrafts at nearby stalls. Again, all of this is just a quick, 20-minute jaunt from Resorts World Langkawi.

The Bahamas offers much more than just its captivating beaches and stunning sunsets.

Perhaps Junkanoo is the most exhilarating representation of Bahamian culture. A spectacle of colours, sounds and rhythmic movements, it’s an unforgettable street parade that you must witness when staying at Resorts World Bimini.

This festivity is a vivid reminder of the island's colourful heritage, providing memorable entertainment and a deep sense of connection to the roots of this incredible destination. It's not only a parade but a living, breathing testament to the Bahamas' strong cultural preservation.


So, as you plan your next escapade, consider Resorts World Bimini not just as a holiday destination but as an explorer’s journey that’ll take you through the fascinating chapters of Bahamian art and culture.
