Bon Ton Resort Langkawi is one of the island’s most stylish, unique and intimate resorts. Beside managing this beautiful place, the founder also set up and runs LASSie – The Langkawi Animal Shelter and Sanctuary Foundation – which is set-up to receive, rehabilitate and care for animals that are neglected, abused and in need. LASSie are staffed partly by volunteers who help to take care of the shelter and walk their friendly dogs

Many of the cats are allowed to roam freely around the Bon Ton property. In fact, don’t be surprised if an overly friendly kitty jumps on your lap as you dine at their restaurant.

An interesting fact about Bon Ton and its sister property Temple Tree – is that these 70-110 year-old buildings, were  family homes of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin. The houses were dismantled from their original locations from Penang and moved to Langkawi, carefully restored and now parts of the resorts offering authentic Malays, Straits and even Estate living experiences on the island.
