Bon Ton Resort opened in an old colonial bungalow in the city in 1987. Combined with an antique gallery and wine room it was a leader in KL. The decision to expand to Langkawi was made in 1992. Bon Ton Langkawi opened as a sister restaurant and gallery shop in February 1994. At that time, the site was a completely undeveloped coconut plantation. In contrast to the city restaurant, Bon Ton Langkawi was set up with a resort/casual open-air feel. The KL business was sold in 1999. The Langkawi restaurant serves more seafood because of its location. The style of the food is Western with spice, complimented by a local specialty of Nyonya food (the marriage of the Chinese and Malay). Desserts however are another story. Here everything is wickedly sinful, made with real ingredients, resulting in a delicious taste sensation! To top it all off, most are served with homemade ice cream. Given the location and surrounds of the restaurant and gallery, Bon Ton soon evolved in to a boutique resort. Between 1995 and 2004, eight antique “Malay Kampung” houses and a Chinese provisions shop were relocated to the site. The houses were brought in from different locations around the island and mainland and ranged in age from 60-120 years old. It took approximately 2 weeks to pull down the houses and up to 3 months to reassemble them. Restoration work required patience and attention to detail and was completed by local carpenters skilled in the old tradition of “Kampung” house construction. Once this work was completed, modern amenities were installed and each house was decorated in a unique Aseana style. All houses are totally different in layout and decor. The furniture used is antique and the fabrics from Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. All villas are air-conditioned and fitted with modern bathroom facilities & natural soap ceiling fans, TV, DVD/CD player, tea/coffee making facilities, toaster and fridge. Five houses have outdoor private sun decks with freestanding wooden bathtubs and sun loungers provided, so guests can enjoy the sun by the day and stars at night. The other three, all have their wooden bathtub in the main house.
