My partner and I just honeymooned at The Datai and from the moment we arrived until the moment we left it was nothing but the best, most outstanding service. The staff were so polite, they could not do enough to help you and they were always one step ahead of you, offering you anything you could possibly need before you... More

This hotel amazes. Our 4th trip in 8 years and it remains as good, possibly better than our first visit. The nature, the service, the food, the rooms are 6 stars. The staff are particularly wonderful, Jonathan, who took the kids to experience the wildlife and ecology of the mangroves, beach and forrest made the trip so special for our... More

This is a great hotel, I wish we could have stayed longer. We had a room in the main building which works well for a short stay. The room was beautiful. The bathroom had a bath and rainforest shower along with a dressing area. The room had a wonderful view overlooking trees where monkeys (dusky lemurs) were playing and the... More

The title says it all - this is THE best place you can stay in Langkawi. Actually, it tops all the amazing places we've stayed so far throughout our travels around the world. The Datai is a very unique hidden gem. If you havent been here yet, read no further. Make the trip. Experience a place that offers more than... More

We visited The Datai on our honeymoon, and despite lofty expectations, we were blown away by the level of service and the attention to detail shown here. We loved everything - the setting, the design, the food, the guided nature walks - but the one thing that will make us return to The Datai has to be the amazing service!... More

We stayed at the Datai for our honeymoon in June 2015. Our whole experience was just out of this world! The location is very secluded, but this is exactly what we wanted so we could just relax and enjoy the nature. The service we received was incredible, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left, the staff were... More

This is the place to be if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The environment is quiet and calming and you really don't see a lot of people around, except during breakfast. Service is top notch and staff extremely friendly. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is that the rooms... More

We stayed at the Datai on our honeymoon in October 2014. The hotel is in a fabulous bay on Langkawi and commands amazing views and walks in the surrounding rainforest. Our room was one of the villas below the main resort and the privacy was marvellous, as was the appointment of the bedroom, balcony and bathroom. The Datai has a... More

We honeymooned at the Datai. Such a beautiful place, there was not one thing that we would have changed. We still talk about our time in Langkawi. Highly recommended. The seafood banquet on the beach is still my most memorable meal ever.
