We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It was the 2nd part of our 4 nights stay in Langkawi. First 2 nights we stay at Bayview Hotel. Our stay here was by chance as we did not choose to stay at The Datai as it was very expensive and beyond our budget. We had instead choose the Andaman. However the Andaman was facing some lodging issues thus they are unable to accommodate us. Being a responsible hotel, they compensate us by topping up for our stay at The Datai which is just opposite of the Andaman. Two thumbs up for The Andaman. Now for the review of The Datai.
The hotel is very secluded and very far from anything literally. In and out of the hotel is via transportation only. Either drive yourself or be driven. Having said that, the hotel offer you the amazing relaxation environment you need. Just being at the lobby gives me the feeling of relax and peace. Peace is their top priority as they reminded us of their children policy which include keeping their volume down at night. Though I think they do not really enforce it as our children was really noisy.
Definitely first class and one of its kind. Not the common hotel, resort layout. Spacious bathroom and spacious sleeping area. I am not good at describing thus I will upload some photos. It is a full service room with free coffee machine, juices, soft drink and mineral water. All topped up daily. Please see photos. Picture speaks a thousand words.
Since it is a secluded resort, it is full service resort with everything you need. They have 2 swimming pool, one at the main building, the other one near the beach. Every location shout out luxury and really a class on its own. It is really a huge resort thus you may need to engage the buggy services to move from one place to another.
Service as expectation was great. Very friendly and helpful staff from the counter to the concierge and the housekeepers.
Overall I would say the best resort I have stayed thus far and that is because the price is also high. So if you want a great place you have to pay the price.
