Had a villa, room was tidy beds were big, in general it's a great place. Easily transported by golf buggies around the resort. Restaurant was brilliant, service was second to none! Hopefully will be back as soon as possible!

We stayed here two nights in a deluxe room and cannot express in words how terrific this experience was for us. The hotel is located in the middle of a jungle and close to one of the most fantastic beaches in all of SE Asia. So, you get the nature experience with monkeys, birds and other wildlife, and then you... More

So why not more stars? Well because you always get the feel that they are overcharging you for food and drinks. The beauty of the resort is it's isolation and jungle location, the beach is fantastic and the resort is beautifully designed. We stayed in a superior villa but the hotel rooms looked great and a pool villa would be... More

The Datai – what can I say, other than spectacularly relaxing, in a tranquil location. Disclaimer – I was after a completely relaxing holiday, in that I wasn’t interested in doing lots of sightseeing / tourism around Langkawi. I wanted to spend a week recovering from the bitter London weather. The Datai is perfect for this, but is not wonderfully... More

My parter and I holiday four to five times a year. Normally for a week and always in hotels where we can have a private pool.. Think Qualia (Hamilton Island), The Viceroy (Ubud).. This hotel runs rings around the others. We stayed in a Beach Front Villa and from the moment we checked into the Villa we were instantly struck... More

This hotel is definitely one of the best luxury hotels in Malaysia and a good choice for a short getaway that's not far from home (if you're a local). The service was excellent from the moment we arrived, the restaurants we had breakfast, lunch and dinner at, the private beach service (the hotel staff will immediately provide bottled water and...

This is a slightly over due review since my last trip up to The Datai was in early Nov for a short span of 3 Days 2 Nights. The lure of the resort is simply amazing and I am glad the team at The Datai made my family's stay there immensely pleasurable and enjoyable. Kudos to Mr Jaya and team... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Datai. The attention to detail and service standards were second to none. From the concierge, to the reception, butler (Francis), buggy driver, restaurant waiter etc, everyone attends with a smile and exudes sincerity. Datai brings the term 'personalized service' to a whole new level. Don't think we will be going to... More

A very beautiful property that will ensure you have a serene, relaxing vacation. Stayed there for ten days and absolutely love it. Well appointed , beautiful room albeit with a small balcony, excellent service, wonderful spa and food to die for at all venues esp the Beach Club. Looking forward to visit again
