“Loved the Danna!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

I stayed for 6 nights at the Danna and must say I was treated like a queen as soon as I arrived. Went to Langkawi for a relaxing break around end of August and would highly recommend the the hotel. It is definately well suited for couples and families or friends looking for a relaxing holiday.
I loved the arcitecture of the building. Hotel room was very large, well appointed and spotless. The furniture was amazing ... king size comfortable bed, LCD TV and DVD player (which was handy on rainy days!) massive bathroom which included a resort style shower and separate bath tub, and even an outside day bed! The resort even had a library room allowing you to borrow a novel or magazine ... very thoughtful when spending the day by the pool.
The staff were so friendly and helpful and is a great reflection on management of the hotel. I'd like to thank the team for welcoming me, they have all made my stay that extra special. In particular I'd like to thank Dayang, Fifie, Mina, Amin and Azri :-)
The infinity pool is a definate highlight of the hotel. Hotel food was great, although I'd also recommend trying the Privilage restaurant which serves Malysian cuisine close to the hotel.
I also loved the Spa (great massages!) and gym facilities.
I just hope the next time I return to Langkawi the Danna will still be affordable as it is pure luxury! Thanks again

I've stayed there twice and they never fail to impress me. Well appointed rooms, huge beautiful bathrooms and a magnificient view (even the garden/courtyard rooms)! Pleasant and friendly staff. They have got the biggest pool in Langkawi. I have my meals at the Straits & Co mostly for lunch and it was wonderful. Not many choices but good enough. Taste good and service was great! For a romantic experience, get The Planters (another F&B outlet) to arrange a sunset dinner by the pool, which we did and had such a good time. Great for kids and couples. The kids room and the staff were great. Feels grand' to be there yet cosy with the warm welcome! Will come back soon.

Room Tip: If you want some quite time, get the garden room, not the one facing the pool. It's quite noisy...

I am pleased to write this review on the Danna. It was a amazing experience from the time we arrived untill the day we had to leave. The staff are so good at what they do (I wont call it a job as they are all so very happy)Our room was kept really clean and tidy, had a awesome experience learning to cook fish curry (thanks to the 2 chefs its on the menue for our next dinner party). It was also nice to go to the other room for drinks as the young man who served us was very knowledgable on his beautiful country.The food we had off a menue Im sure you could eat every night for a week and never tire of it.We thank you ALL for treating us so well. Hopefully next year we will bring our family So see you all when we see you. Many many thanks.Gaylene and Bruce Smith (alias Angelina and Brad)

Room Tip: We were on the top floor on the seaside AMAZING

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

We recently had a very enjoyable 5 night stay at the Danna. The hotel is less than a year old, and has been developed in a ‘British Colonial’ style. Our room was very large, well equipped, quiet and spotlessly clean. Obviously a lot of effort and thought has gone into the development of the hotel and its staff, who were very polite, courteous and friendly.

There was a good selection of food options for breakfast/lunch/dinner – with many western and local dishes. They also have a nightly themed buffet by the pool which is definitely worth trying at least once which also increased the variety of food options.

In terms of its location, the Danna is located adjacent to a marina, where there are a few restaurants, a convenience store (open from 4pm) and Laundromat. There is also a bank on the opposite side of the marina (apparently ATMs are fairly hard to come by in some parts of Langkawi). The Langkawi cable car station and oriental village is only about a 20 minute walk down the road. In our view, this area was much nicer than the main ‘strip’ of Langkawi (Pantai Cenang) which looked quite tired and ‘touristy’.

Special mention must also go out to two of the waitresses (Nadia and Hosla) – on our last night they surprised us by making up a special table for us in the restaurant, complete with candles and our own name card – was a very nice, personal touch.

Overall this is a really lovely hotel, and we would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone considering a stay on Langkawi.

From the first moment we arrived at the Danna hotel we were made to feel like we could have been the only guests the staff had to look after. From the genuine friendly and welcoming greeting to the refreshing soft drink,cleansing towels,and back massage ,we felt like we had landed in paradise.
We were shown the beautiful infinity pool, restaurant and all the facilities in the hotel before being taken to our room. Check in was relaxed and painless. No hastle whatsoever.
Our room was a Viceroy marina view and was simply stunning with elegant design, plenty of space and a fantastic balcony view of the marina.
Every single member of staff were courteous, polite and made us feel special.We have travelled all over the world including K.L and Dubai on this same trip but have never before experienced such a fantastic place and hotel.
We were very impressed that Mr Khan the general manager took time to ask our opinions of the hotel and staff while he was undertaking what appeared to be a general inspection of cleanliness etc.
Our son was even given treatment at the poolside following a jellyfish sting whilst swimming in the sea.
We only had one slight area of concern. This was because we were unable to exchange travellers cheques in the hotel and the local bank was closed.It is advertised by the hotel that this facility is available and it was lucky we had enough local currency to tide us over until the bank opened the following day.
There was an excellent happy hour at the pool bar every day as drinks are fairly expensive so two for the price of one was very welcome. We feel that an even better service would be to have the same in the bar when the resident band were performing to a near empty bar on several occasions. (Even if only in off season when the hotel is relatively quiet)
Overall we were thrilled with our stay both with the hotel and Langkawi. This was meant to be a holiday of a lifetime for our 20th wedding anniversary but we fell in love with Malaysia and are already planning to return next year.
It is patently obvious that a lot of training and customer care have been undertaken by staff at all levels to achieve such an excellent standard of sevice.Well done to all and a heartfelt thanks for making our holiday so perfect.

We just came back home after our 6 night stay at The Danna in Langkawi, and were so sad to leave. Here's just a few highlights that made our visit at The Danna so great:

- the friendly staff - everyone has a smile for you, and goes out of their way to make your stay a great experience. We got to know many of the staff in the restaurant during breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner, and were really sad to leave. Also, many of the managers stop by to chat and ask about your experience. This is a nice personal touch.

- the room - we had booked the "smallest / cheapest" room category (Merchant room) and were simply stunned by the room. It's as large as a suite in other 5 star hotels! Our room was facing the courtyard in the middle of the hotel, and while we obviously couldn't see the sea / beach / marina etc, the view was very nice too. The bed was huge and comfortable too. The bathroom is stunning too.

- the food - we loved the breakfast, especially the Indian food options with the different roti (bread / pancakes) and the Dhall curry. Their bread and pastries are fantastic as well - not easy to get that kind of quality in Asia (we're German and love our bread and pastries :-). We ate dinner once in the hotel and, while it is more expensive than the restaurants at the marina, the food was really good and ample portions too.

Other things to note: the large infinity pool is great for swimming; check-in was an experience in itself with both of us getting a shoulder massage while the paperwork was being done; we did one of the 2 hour spa packages ("rituals") and thought it was great value for the money.

There really were no negative points with our stay - if you wanted to look for some possible improvements, you would really have to look into the details: we thought the air condition in the room was too cold when it was working, even when we had the temperatur turned up all the way - it tended to blow ice cold air just over the bed, so was a bit uncomfortable during the night. The library / reading room could offer a wider selection of up-to-date magazines. But these are really very minor things.

All in all, we loved every minute of our stay, and will especially miss the friendly staff (and the Dhall curry for breakfast :)

Room Tip: Most people seemed to spend the additional money on the seaview rooms, which really have a nice view...

We are checking out tomorrow but felt compelled to write it up early.
Firstly the building is beautiful, it really is like on the website anf given it's onlr 8 months old ou would expect this. The styling and fitout is top notch and the rooms are spacious. The pool area is great, with a large infinity pool surrounded by deck chairs and pods. The service is what really sets this hotel apart. It is a bit cliche but they really do care. You get a welcome massage and desk less check in. They bring you purfumed refresher towels and free iced water (no pressure to buy drinks) at the pool. The service and food is excellent. The valet is free. It is my wife's birthday, hey provided flowers and cake at lunch without knowing that we would be eating there. I could go on but at this price, i have never seen anything like it. Highly recommended.
