I recently stayed 9 nights at The Danna and would happily have stayed a month.
From my warm and wonderful greeting by Justine and Concierge staff to my sad send off from Sabaria and Lobby staff, all employees at The Danna were just fantastic. Without being intrusive the staff took a personal interest in their guests and this made my stay so much more enjoyable. I was travelling alone and it was wonderful getting to know the staff and having them know me by name. All staff were delightful, professional and extremely friendly. I was very pleased to meet Zamimah from Reservations as she was very helpful providing information prior to my stay at the hotel.
All areas of the hotel are very well maintained and the rooms are spacious, luxurious and spotless. Congratulations to Kamar and all the Housekeeping staff who do a fabulous job. I did appreciate their efforts in keeping my room so immaculate all the time.
I loved all areas of the hotel and the serene atmosphere. The pool is just divine - perfect water temperature, lovely spa and very comfortable banana lounges – important for me as I spent a lot of time at the pool. Pool staff are excellent and look after the guests extremely well at all times.
I had a two hour spa treatment which was first class all the way and a great start to my holiday. I would have returned for more treatments as they had a special offer on which was very reasonably priced but I ran out of time.
Longs walks along the beach are heavenly at The Danna and although the Hotel is about a 10 minute drive from Cenang Beach I loved the more quiet location, and it was no trouble getting a taxi to any destination. The Hotel is located next door to The Marina/Perdana Quay and there are a few very good restaurants/bars there if you wish to eat out of the hotel overlooking the Marina.
After watching the beautiful sunset on the beach my first evening I decided to eat in the hotel Dining Room. I was greeted by the very charming and efficient hostess/waitresses Sabaria, Selena and Lee and surprisingly by the most stunning piano playing. Selena’s food and wine recommendations were perfect and the food was delicious. All my meals in the hotel were of a high standard.
My first evening was quite magical being in such a lovely setting and listening to the wonderful resident pianist, Emzac. He is very talented and his love of music is heard in his playing. To my surprise and absolute delight Emzac was again at his piano the following morning during breakfast. Being spoilt with such beautiful piano playing during the breakfast and evening meals is another very special touch at The Danna. Thank you Emzac.
There are many unexpected surprises to be had during your stay at The Danna, you just have to visit this beautiful hotel to experience all its special treasures. I hope to return to Langkawi one day, and if I do, I would not hesitate to stay again at The Danna. A huge thank you to all The Danna staff for making my holiday absolute bliss.
