Despite being at The Datai for a short period of time, I was impressed with the one within Nature experience. It is encapsulated within an ancient tropical rainforest facing the sandy beach of Andaman sea. This is probably the only place I know which offers such exclusivity. When we arrived, the chauffeur was waiting for us and during the drive... More

Wonderful stay and would highly recommend even for families despite there being no kids club. Our only complaint was that the aircon in the villa was not working properly and very noisy but we did mention it and when looked at it got slightly better. The food, facilities and service particularly were fantastic. We're looking at dates for another trip!

We were lucky enough to have 3 nights over Easter at the Datai. Never before have I stayed at a hotel/resort where each and every staff member seemed to welcome us as though he/she were having us over for a special dinner at their own house. Such was the pride they took in their work, whether it was folding our... More

We stayed 12 days in March 2014. From the first moment we entered the Datai we were enveloped by the peace and tranquility of one of the most amazing places we have stayed anywhere in the world. The facilities and staff were without fault, in fact the staff were all delightful, friendly but most importantly very professional. The food throughout... More

My wife and I stayed here with a group of couples over 4 days in April 2014. We have travelled and enjoyed many resorts around the world and the Datai was one of our absolute favourites. The location was beautiful and clean and the staff were so attentive to our every need. We stayed in the villas which were private... More

We love this hotel. This time was our third stay and it just keeps getting better and better. The team at the Datai have managed to achieve that difficult balance of a well managed hotel that has at the same time a relaxed feel. The location is outstanding - a beautiful rainforest setting with the facilities / rooms subtly intertwined... More

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...
