“LIMA 13”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Spent 5 days there. From 24th march to the 29th march 2013. Was a business holiday. Service was excellent with friendly faces all the way. Staff made the stay really hassle free and ALL needs were full filled. I had VIP guests that was pampered and their wants again was full filled by the staff. A board room was used for meetings and again friendly staff and professional amenities were available for my VIPs. Though the hotel at that time was 99% full the rush and bustle of a normal hotel was not experienced. The colonial setting gave a gave a majestic ambiance to a a casual seaside and poolside and dining area. The hotel is in a shape of a square/rectangle and the center courtyard is filled with trees and greenery, with pools filled with carp and other fishes. Even at the highest level (5th floor) the gold/orange carps stand out and give a truly Malaysian feeling. A hotel is a hotel the difference is the people and The Danna staff stand out miles above the rest. Well done and thanks for a wonderful holiday!!

Room Tip: Get the rooms facing the sea front... a view to die for

What a lovely hotel. The staff were spot on, very courteous and always willing to help. The rooms were spotless and we could not recommend this hotel highly enough. We stayed for 7 nights on our honeymoon and everything about the place was perfect. The staff could not do enough for us.

Room Tip: We had a viceroy ocean view room, lovely views.

We stayed for 10 nights and have nothing but praise for the hotel and the staff. We were made to feel like royalty and hardly had to open a door for the whole time we were there! It was my birthday during the visit and my partner arranged breakfast in bed, the hotel made it special by giving us complimentary bubbly and a birthday cake.

The view from the pool is stunning and the long white beach is just a stroll away. Complimentary water and fruit entice you to laze around the pool on very comfortable sun beds. One minor complaint is the lack of showers around the pool area - consequently the pool can sometimes get an oily sheen from the sun creams and oils that guests do not wash off.

Food in the hotel is expensive compared to local prices but not compared to European prices. Restaurants nearby offer a very good alternative.

Visit Mupthy in the Bar and try one of his cocktails. A genuinely nice guy with a passion for his work!

Would we go back again - yes without a doubt :)

I have many compliments for the hotel. Staff is very good, facilities very well maintain and room is very nicely layer out.

Restaurant menu is very limited with prices way too high. Quality of food is average. However I cannot recommend the hotel as there is no specific character or any local flavor. It is just another 5 star hotel. Food across the marina is much better however for beaches next to Marina usually has its limitation.

4 days following a Seabourn cruise was a natural extension of the 6 star on board experience but with paid for drinks. Not such a burden. Restaurant good but plenty of nearby restaurants in adjacent marina complex. 35 minutes to golf, 20 to airport and 5 to cable car so good location if you're not in Langkawi for shopping which we weren't.

Would certainly return if only for one of the largest horizon pools I've seen. Great sea view rooms but marina view also good. Large and well laid out. All in all a really nice hotel built recently but in neo-colonial style.

Only drawback, as with a lot of SE Asian beach resorts, is that sand becomes mud quite quickly at the extent of low tide. Can't have everything I guess.

Room Tip: Sea view if you can.

Dear Buccaneer - 001
Much obliged for taking your time out in providing us with your feedbacks. Our beach is naturally that way time to time and has corals and an underlying mineral deposits that makes the beach water look murky at the shallow end, however, if you go out further, it is nicer and should be fine.I’m glad that all other facilities and our services have met your expectations.
Thank you for choosing The Danna Langkawi as your retreat destination and waiting for you on your next visit.
Kind regards
Pascal

This has to be one of the best hotels ever! The pool was to die for, rooms spacious and opulent. Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make you feel special.
Grounds and beach area very clean and tidy. Loved all the deck chairs in the water, snacks by the pool and the large clean towels waiting for you around the pool area. Beach was a bit of disappointment but the pool made up for it, never enjoyed a pool so much before.
Breakfast was great and brilliant service. The restaurants down at the Marina, 200m away where a great option for cheap dining at night. Wonderful sitting eating looking at the luxury boats. The bed was one of the most comfortable one we found, with massive choice of pillows.
The Danna was well worth it. Would love to come back again.

Short and sweet: new, colonial style, opulent, beautiful and well appointed suites, well kept grounds, attentive staff, close to 8 or so restaurants and a massage spa (also has both in-house), and to top it off the BEST pool at any hotel in the world.
It's pricey but well worth it.

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view have smaller balconies. Rooms on south side have harbor views.
