“perfect place to chill for a week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We wanted a place where we could totally "chill out" for a week and the Danna ticked every box.
The staff, without exception, were excellent. The hotel and rooms were spacious and we found every night we slept like babies in the extremely comfortable beds.
The choice of either the large infinity pool or the quiet sandy beach was the most taxing choice we had to make each day.
There were many added touches such as a welcome shoulder massage, a cake for my husband's birthday even though we made no mention of it, a welcome jar of home made biscuits in our room and fresh fruit every day.
The restaurants were excellent but very close by are other options should you wish.

Top shelf experience in Langkawi. Beautiful colonial style property that really takes you back to another time, yet with all the modern creature comforts. Impeccable service, large rooms, beautiful pool and lots of extra little touches. Great food in the restaurants. After checking out early on Sunday morning and coming back late Sunday afternoon to collect our bags after a day of sailing, the kind concierge even offered us a room for an hour to freshen up before our flight.

With warm regards.

We only had 3 days in Langkawi but they were made exceptional because of this hotel. There was nothing we could fault with it, from arriving to leaving the staff were lovely, the hotel was beautiful, the facilities top notch and the food was great. We received a lovely welcome massage and then shown to our room which was huge.
The food in the hotel was very good, we enjoyed breakfast and dinner here, the food very fresh and delicious.
We hired a car to view the whole island ourselves, i would recommend doing this so you can stop and see all the fab places to visit like the waterfalls, the craft centres, the duty free shopping and the amazing beaches. I wished we had longer here!

After a less than memorable three weeks at The Datai, we spent the last five nights at The Danna.
The five dot grade that equals "Excellent" really is not quite high enough for this hotel. It is absolutely top class in every department far exceeding our expectations. The staff are exemplary, friendly and professional in all respects. The management are approachable, ever present, have the ability to listen and genuinely care that everything is in order. This must stem from having a GM who is on hand and caring of the staff, a far cry from the in-absentia at The Datai.
Every aspect of The Danna is beyond reproach and we greatly look forward to our next stay which assuredly will be much longer than this first one.
We were very lucky indeed to have made the decision to move to The Danna thus rescuing us from what was a managerless shambles. Our only regret was not making the decision far sooner but we live and learn.
To would be visitors, please do not miss the Piano man at breakfast. It is reminiscent of the dining days of 1920/1930 luxury liner dining.
On a scale of 100%, without hesitation we give it 101%.

Room Tip: Any room within the hotel affords the guest a room that is perfect.

I stayed in The Danna with a friend for a week in late September 2013. After a few days in KL, this was a perfect way to really unwind and also squeeze in some programmes around the island.

Upon arrival we were offer tea and a relaxing massage. Checkin was very pleasant, the hotel was cool and welcoming after a delayed flight from KL, the staff was just simply fantastic. After a brief tour we made our way to the pool - the largest infinity pool on the island, with absolutely fantastic views over the ocean. The sandy beach was also amazing.

The room itself was spacious, with very comfy beds, and a lovely bathroom - with a separate rainshower room and bathtub. Our room was overlooking the pool and the ocean, so it was an absolute pleasure to retire there after the end of the day.

The cafe and restaurant served a good variety of Mayalsian and Western food, cocktails were nice in the bar and the poolside as well. Convenient happy hours keep everyone happy indeed! Champagne breakfast sets the right tone for the day, with both a la carte and buffet options available.

The spa is a real strength of the hotel, prices are not as extortionate as you usually find in 5* hotels, but the treatments are amazing - very much missing the massages!

The concierge service was super helpful, taking care of the most minute details (eg providing up-to-date DVDs for quietnights in, and getting housekeeping to dry our swimsuits) to organising trips around the island and confirming our travel details back to London.

The hotel is very close to the Cable Car, which was a great experience, maybe a bit of a trek to get to other parts of the island. A reliable and relatively cheap taxi service made this a non-issue, we happily travelled around.

All in all, this was the most amazing and relaxing place I have ever visited, and surpassed all my expectations!

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Malaysia, which culminated in 6 fantastic nights in the Danna Hotel. Its very difficult to find any fault with the hotel, from the moment we arrived, the staff were so friendly and attentive and the complimentary neck massage was a treat. Our room had a jungle view and was spacious, well funished and well maintained. However, they are building a Butterfly farm adjacent to the hotel, which can get a little noisy, but did not detract from our enjoyment. The food and service in the resturant and cafe was exceptional, as was the service around the pool side and beach area. Thanks to the management and all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable and if we do go back to Langkawi, we would definately stay at the Danna.
