When you think about paradise - think about The Datai. We were picked up at the airport and an immaculate limo took us to the hotel. Greeted by names and directly checked-in in the room. We had a superior room on the top floor, overlooking the pool, the rainforest and with sights of the andaman sea. The room was just... More

We stayed at The Datai Langkawi and had such a wonderful time. Although the room was not yet ready when we arrived, Mr. Shareef from Front Desk, made sure our check in was pleasant and comfortable. Our room, 309, was spacious, clean and well equipped. The restaurants and room service served a wide range of selection, local and western. The... More

When my boyfriend and I arrived on our first day, we were greeted warmly and taken to sit in the Lobby Lounge over looking the rainforest canopy facing the sea, with a stunning view of the distant islands. We were given a complimentary refreshing lemongrass and honey drink while we waited for our room key. Our room was beautiful -... More

Highlights included the bird walk with Irshad, he's a master storyteller and within the hotel certainly known as the Attenborough of Malaysia. Told us about two birds that feed each other berries as part of the pair-bonding ritual. Wish my boyfriend brought me nice food! I always cook for him. Cheeky monkeys on bedroom balconies make you feel like you're... More

The Datai exceeded our wildest expectations! It is set in a stunning location and the staff are warm, welcoming and very gracious. The food in the Thai restaurant and the beach front restaurant was delicious and the coffee at breakfast was the best I've had in a hotel. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a beech villa which... More
