Me and my husband have been travelling around the World for years, we have stayed in amazing places and hotels however we have never seen even similar to The Datai hotel! The resort is located in the middle of rainforest which means you belong to the nature World once you arrive to the hotel. The resort has got the villas,... More

We stayed for 10 nights at the Datai in September 2014. Our friends, who are well travelled, had visited a few years ago and said it was their favourite place in the world and we found out why it is paradise. If you enjoy wildlife, good food and excellent service you will love the Datai. Set in the jungle with... More

There is no doubt that the location is stunning and is 5 star but we were underwhelmed at best and disappointed by the hotel, service and room, which we had been led to believe would be the highlight of our honeymoon judging from TA reviews. The positives, as have been stated in previous reviews are the beach and jungle, the... More

The resort was build 20 years ago, and unfortunately that is quite obvious once you arrive at the resort. Of course they did some refurbishment, but it is more the layout of the resort (very simple, but without being stylish) which gives it away, and is just not standard any more. Don't get me wrong - it is ok and... More

A superb hotel in the middle of Langkawi's rainforest, with excellent service and food - the breakfast was amazing!. The room was very nice, a little bit old fashion but this characteristic added some charm to the place. The pools were lovely and the beach was beautiful with a very friendly sport activity centre. We came in October during low... More

Last Saturday afternoon, my family and I stopped by to take a look at the The Datai Langkawi after hearing so much of its great stories from friends and over the Internet. We were certainly not hotel guests to begin with as we wanted to have a little tour around before deciding if this hotel was worth every penny in... More

Totally amazing hotel, I have been here several times. This trip was for a week. If you can treat yourself stay here. I have seen inside (not stayed) all levels of rooms and everything is magical, you will not be disappointed. It is popular and so I would suggest staying in the shoulder seasons for a more relaxed and quite... More

Beautiful hotel in tranquil settings. Food good & service to match. The hotel has direct access to the Best water activity in Langkawi & in our opinion the best water sports company in the world. The hotel has partenered well as there are other operators for provide an inferior service. Datai & Naam are a great combination for any visiting... More

We stayed 6 nights at The Datai in September 2014 as part of a two stop holiday. After 4 frantic days in Singapore, we loved the contrast of our stay at this calm, green place. The main building itself is a beautiful wooden structure set deep in the rainforest. The elegant lobby is open to the elements & looks out... More
