Our family holiday at The Datai was a fabulous experience which we will remember for years to come. Every aspect of the hotel has been fine-tuned to perfection and it is difficult to find any fault with The Datai. We stayed for 5 nights in a Rainforest villa. The rooms are very large and comfortable and the "atmosphere" of living... More

This was our second trip to The Datai and though only for 4 nights, it was a very relaxing and delightful experience. The rooms are well thought out and very comfortable. It is easy to get about on their buggies which travel up and down to the beach and restaurants regularly. The main upper pool is very good and the... More

We stayed at the Datai (Couple - 52, 50) for 6 nights. It was an outstanding experience. We stayed at a villa superior (nº25) half way between beach and lobby. Excellent qualit food, in the 4 restaurants (although expensive). Breakfast is excellent (diversify as a top 5* should be) No restaurants in the surroundings (exception to the neighbour 5* hotel...

A very unique place set in the jungle. The beach is nice and the ambiance is very laid back. The staff are helpful and courteous. The food is very good but somewhat over priced. The drawback is the remoteness, it is a jaunt to access other places. That said, it's a great place to lay low away from the hustle... More

We stayed Datai from 14 to 17 August 2015. We were happy with the overall hotel and nature activities. However, the room needs refurbishment as it is old. We were given a room with warped flooring and sweated water droplets everyday. Anyway, we are happy that management took note of our complaint and offer us a re-visit on the house.... More

Our fifth trip. The Datai remains the best hotel I have evert visited. The service is the best I have experienced. Nothing is too much trouble. Amazing views and setting. All the restaurants are world class quality. My 9 year daughter was treated like a princess and she loved the Datai. Highly highly recommended.

We stayed at The Datai for a week. We were in one of the Beach Villas. It is the best resort I have ever been to. Excellent service with lots to do around the island. The people were outstanding throughout the trip. The restaurants on the property are sublime. This resort is paradise!!!😃😃😃

It was planned to celebrate a friend's birthday in a pool villa, so we flew in from different locations to make it happen. Though the experience was below expectation, the "being together" over ruled the dissatisfaction, luckily. To start with, the pool villa was booked for three people, with additional charge. I would expect besides the extra bed things come... More

Overall the stay and service is good. The reservation service was poor as the activity I planned with them was not noted. It was a 10K worth of stay with one hour golf lesson. I did not get to fully enjoyed it. And I was not compensated for their error either. If you are planning to buy these type of... More

My wife and I stayed at the Datai for 3 nights at the end of a 3 week trip in Vietnam and Malaysia. Bad points: We had just come from the Perhentian Islands, which were absolutely beautiful (water, beaches, snorkeling etc) so unfortunately the Datai seemed a little bit disappointing in comparison. The location is right at the 'bottom' end... More
