This resort is in a spectacular location nestled between the trees and wildlife of Langkawi's beautiful rainforest and white sand beach. The accommodation was also incredible - spacious and clean with so much attention to detail in decor, furnishings and extras you could not want for more. They have literally thought of everything you could possibly need! Service was prompt,... More

This is a place for everyone . We stayed in a villa In the jungle, beautifully appointed. The beds are extra large and the bathrooms vast. The are tea making facilities in the room and plenty of fruit which you have to be careful of as the monkeys will come in and steal it. There is a pool for adults... More

Our discerning friends chose the Datai for their 50th birthday celebration. The group of 12 stayed in both the beachfront villas and the main lodging up near the adult pool. From the BMW pickup with soothing classical music to in-villa dining, fabulous breakfasts, spa treatments the best 'adults only' pool ever, spectacular island views and helpful staff (ever patient with...

When travelling, I like to pick my hotels by using websites such as Kiwicollection, Conde Nast magazine, Travel & Leisure (see my other reviews). So I only like... More

We stayed for two nights and will be back ASAP! It had everything we look for, good service and staff, relaxed atmosphere and great dining options. Our only slight grumble is we took the limo transfer, although very nice, we felt MYR195 each way was rather expensive and would look at just getting a taxi from the airport next time.... More

A gorgeous destination and well worth the trip. We spent 4 nights in one of the rainforest villas, a 2 min walk to the beach and did not want to leave the property. The villas are spacious and clean and while the resort is large it feels exclusive and uncrowded (a rarity in the region). Almost like having your own... More

We came here just for lunch. Given the room rate here, we expected food and drinks to be expensive, but the prices were very reasonable and the food excellent. Service was very friendly. During our weekend in Langkawi, we spent two days exploring the island and its beaches. Datai Bay (where the hotel is located) was so much more beautiful... More

Perfect stay at the Datai! The hotel is very nice and the location is beautiful. Staff are very nice and all three restaurants were superb. Rooms are spacious and choose between being close to hotel or totally private in a villa with a short walk but do lock your doors as the monkeys can open them (as we discovered when... More

Pros - The staff were all warm and helpful, and went beyond their responsibilities to help us with restaurant bookings, sightseeing plans. In terms of service, this was truly top-notch and it really forms a huge part of your experience there. - This is a secluded area, the beach is large enough to build a village on but accommodates only...
