My husband and I spent 2 weeks at the Datai Langkawi and enjoyed every second. The hotel is set in a stunning location surrounded by rainforest and a beautiful beach with views out to sea that are second to none. The hotel maintain the beach remarkably by cleaning it every day, the cleanliness of the public areas is superb, and our villa was kept impeccable throughout our stay. We booked into a rainforest villa which is well worth the money, it's designed perfectly to match it's environment and we saw many creatures whilst enjoying a drink on our balcony. The room was cleaned thoroughly and the turn down service at night was lovely, each day we had fresh fruit and every evening homemade chocolates, I like the fact that soft drinks in the fridge are free (alcohol is at a charge) and that there is tea and coffee facilities. A torch and umbrellas are provided, the hotel lighting along the pathways at night is quite dim, but I liked this as I think it benefits the nature of the hotel, harsh lights would spoil the ambiance of the whole place, as mentioned you have a torch and you get whizzed around in buggies if you do not want to walk. Special touches that meant alot to us were: whilst sunbathing you get bought cold flannels, iced water, pots of ice cream and in the afternoon a shot of the day's cocktail, when eating in the evening in any of the restaurants you get bought little tasters that are just delicious. We ate in every restaurant during our stay and not once did we have a bad meal in fact in every place we were made to feel special and so very welcome and the food is superb. We saw many creatures here, including, 2 types of monkeys, wild boar, flying squirrel, hornbills, kingfishers, monitor lizards, 100's of gecko's, and probably a lot more that I've forgotten to mention. Finally the staff at the Datai are truly amazing, my husband and I have been lucky enough to travel to a number of places but only here did we experience friendliness and professionalism from every single member of staff, from Inna who checked us in, to Franis and Adam who served us at the beach bar, not forgetting Yoki and Shaiful who served us so well at breakfast and in the evenings, in fact the list of names could go on and on because as I said all the staff there were simply wonderful. I truly cannot wait for my next visit, thank you Datai!!!!!
