Dip your toes into soothing hot springs as you soak up wonderful views of the mountains that surround you. Located 14KM north of Kuah Town, Ayer Hangat is a modern cultural complex, and one of Langkawi’s oldest attractions. The jewel of the attraction is the three-tiered hot springs. Natural salt water hot springs are extremely rare and are found in just three other countries around the world. The first tier is the furthest from the entrance and has the warmest water, stunning mountain views, and a gazebo roof cover. The water is rich in minerals, and it is said that it can heal a multitude of foot ailments such as skin diseases, aching joints, and gout.
Legend tells us that the hot springs were formed when two giants were fighting at a wedding, throwing pots, pans, and jugs at each other. A jug of boiling water fell into Air Hangat, creating the natural hot spring.
Originally the hot spring was the only attraction at Ayer Hangat, however, now the village features picturesque ponds and fountains, beautifully landscaped gardens, and soothing jacuzzis. Not to mention the mouth-watering restaurant serving delicious Malaysian, Thai, and Indonesian dishes, the stalls selling an array of excellent gifts and souvenirs, and an area for cultural shows, Malaysian dance, kickboxing, and more. Hire a private jacuzzi in an independent unit for yourself and up to seven others. Hot salt water from the springs is pumped into the jacuzzi, removing toxins from your body, and eliminating your fatigue.
