This Hotel is number one and for a darn good reason... Everything was perfect. We celebrated our Honeymoon here and it was the first time my wife travelled abroad (Rookie) we were just blown away by the hospitality, the villa accomodation in the rain forest, and the natural beauty that surrounded this hotel including the Monkeys! However, I would love...

This was our second stay in Datai hotel. Again a memorable stay, everything was perfect (except the weather :-( ). We hope we can return once reopened in 2018. Very private beach, excellent food, nice rainforest villa and last but not least, first class service!!

Superb staff, nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfast choices. Gulai House and Pavillion were very good. Spa was excellent. As mentioned by others, rainforest villas were quite dark inside, but the ambience was excellent.

I had always wanted to visit this resort and it lived up to my expectations! So serene and tranquil set amongst the jungle and with access to a private beach. Loved that there was a dedicated pool for children, which was close to the beach too. And the food was exceptional.

Amazing experience. Beautiful surroundings in the middle of a rain forest. The service was something we have never had before. We felt like royalty. Great for wanting to go and have a relaxing holiday. The only downside was both pools closed at 7pm.

Just perfect, everything ! The service from the staff is a credit to this place, so dignified & gracefully delivered. The manager can be seen dining & eating in the same restaurant at breakfast as the residents & walking through discreetly throughout the day quietly checking. That is management by my standards. A manager who experiences what the client does...

One of the best hotels I have ever been. Most hotels do not give you the complete experience, usually missing out on some fine details like having some things that are out of place, but not the datai. For a hotel that is 25 years old, it packs the complete experience. Built in the langkawi rainforest, it uses a lot...
