After spending 3 days at the beautiful Tanjung Rhu, we headed to the Datai for some golf! Think rest, relaxation, perfection all in a breathtaking surrounding. The hotel is nestled in the rainforest which makes you encounter all sorts of wildlife:Hornbills, monkeys, snakes! Our favorite restaurant was the Gulai House because you are litterally eating in the forest! It was... More

My wife and i stayed for 12 nights at the Datai and had a really relaxing time. We were the odd couple out as we were NOT honeymooners (having been married for 31 years), but it was lovely to see so many newlyweds cooing like lovebirds! It was low season in late August early September and start of the rainy... More

Location perfect with tropical rainforest surrounding you up to the pristine Andaman sea beach. Giant trees filled with pied and great hornbills.Crimson sunbirds along wooden walkway and kingfishers in the mangrove. Decor awesome. Service the best I have experienced anywhere. Had dinner at Gulai house and twice at the Pavillion restaurant. Wow. Wish we could have it again.

This is paradise - the only thing you hear is the rainforest, the only thing you smell is the rainforest - it's to peaceful and quiet - relaxing when at it's best. 30 degrees C in the air, 30 degrees C in the water. Private beach without any noise. Beautiful in every way - and the service is top of... More

We had a great time being pampered by the staff at Datai. Our first stop was Gulai whose chef served a wide selection of dishes (some of the best we have ever tasted especially the beef Rendang and Crab and Lemongrass soup) for our set dinner. The next day we headed to the beach and had a relaxing time as... More

I appreciate that this review is a bit different from everyone else's here... but this is my honest opinion... The hotel is absolutely beautiful, set on a hillside with trees, birds, flowers, monkeys and other animals everywhere. The view from the check in area was breath-taking. The room was incredible - I had a villa in the forest, there are... More

The staff are all genuinely seem pleased to see you and are happy to help. Breakfast is not extensive but has plenty of choice including quality healthy options. The spa is good, an amazing... More

2 families from NYC stayed there mid-August. We reserved 2 one bedroom villas and was upgraded to pool villas which meant we had extra facility with living/dining room and a private fresh water pool. You really didn't have to leave this compound - we had it all. But it just gets better throughout the resort. Everyone is super friendly and... More
