This was our first trip to Langkawi, a group of islands of the West coast of Malaysia. We read reviews on Trip Adviser about the hotels on the island and we chose the Danna Hotel. This was one of my best decisions ever. The hotel is about 20 minutes drive from the airport and located right next to a beautiful beach. The hotel is large and open plan, there is not that many guest rooms considering the size of the building but from the minute we walked into the hotel I knew we were in for a very pleasant stay. The check-in was very personal, no massive check-in desk, it was fast and as we waited the few minutes for the documentation to be processed we were given a complimentary head and shoulder massage. We were then escorted around the hotel and shown the facilities which were impressive. The guest room was out of this world, large and spacious, the bathroom was also large with a very deep bath which I was delighted with as many hotels claim to have a bath but they are so small they are nothing more than a large shower tray but not here at the Danna hotel. I soaked in the bath every day. The pool area was very well laid out; if you were into swimming for exercise then this was the pool for you. It was suitable for all ages with shallow end and deep pool for the swimmers. The pool service was first class. We had breakfast every morning in the large dining room, the choice of food was excellent including the flutes of champagne to go along with it. Since Langkawi is a duty free island the alcohol was incredibly cheap for a 5 star hotel. We paid the same price for hotel beverages as we would pay in the supermarket in Singapore our home town and that is a bargain. The service overall was excellent, the staff were always ready to help. We had a room overlooking the marina and it was so peaceful. The beach was long with white sand and good for exercise, the hotel also roped off a section of the sea for safe swimming. The gym was well equipped and open all hours. Nearby there were shops and restaurants which served good food at very reasonable prices. If you were going away for a romantic vacation this is definitely the hotel to stay at, there were also a few families as well and everyone was enjoying the sun and the pool. It was a for my wife and I a very enjoyable stay and we intend to return in the near future. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a first class hotel by the beach. Great hotel and great staff.
