We stayed in a Rainforest Villa and had a great time. The complete resort from the beach to the main lobby is really beautiful. The staff is very helpful and accommodating as well. Our 12 month old daughter was fussy over dinner one night and one of the staff at the beach club was nice enough to actually look after... More

We loved our stay at the Datai (3 nights) and wished we had an additional night or two. We were upgraded to the villas and the room was wonderful. The bed was very comfortable and pillows were exquisite. We loved the nature walks and beach walk. It deepened our appreciation of the rainforest that the resort is in. It was... More

We just enjoyed our second visit to The Datai where we stayed in a Beach Villa. The Beach Villas are located between the rainforest and the beach and comprise of a living pavilion, a bedroom/bathroom pavilion, a full sized swimming pool, and outdoor living. There is direct access to the beach with beach lounges set up just for you each... More

This is a very unique place for a getaway experience, with great beach, food, service. Just watching the sea, with a cool drink, being pampered by friendly staff, and enjoy life. Or enjoying water sports and nature walks through the rainforest. Or spending some time in the spa, in the midst of the rainforest, with a good massage. Or having... More

It is not often that you get to luxuriate in the jungle and at a beach but the Datai offers both experiences. The hotel has its own world renowned naturalist Irchard who foffers morning and evening tours and other specialty tours. My wife and I also took the jungle walk which included a fantastic refreshing swim in a deep fresh... More

Our fifth stay here and the Datai continues to deliver; the service is fantastic, all the staff are tirelessly friendly and cheerful whatever the time of day. The beach bar has expanded its hours and menu, and is even better now so you can eat either at the beach restaurant or the beach bar & tables/seating around it … a... More

An absolutely gorgeous and luxurious location- my husband and I had actually visited Datai for a fabulous dinner next to the beach. However, the hospitality, even at the restaurant was so brilliant, and took care of us to such an extent that we would come back just to stay with them. At the end of the day, it's the experience...

If you are looking for a getaway from the busy cities. Just a weekend with your partner with private beach, villa then I would recommend the Datai. Their private villa is so spacious and the design is really modern. The hotel is 35 minutes away from the airport and an hour from the city center. If you are looking for... More

The outstanding feature of this hotel is the service. It is faultless. This is not a destination for those on a tight budget, but for that special occasion (or if you're well heeled) you'd be hard pressed to find a better place. The pace is languid so don't come for the jumping nightlife. Come to be pampered and relax. The... More
