Staying in a beach villa with our butler Ismail at hand is most impressive. The accommodation is 5 star, the restaurants are full of beautiful choices and the staff are like old friends. The wildlife and views are second to none. We are travelling to Sepang Formula 1 on Sunday for the day and Ismail has paved the way organisationally... More

The Datai is the complete package. Whilst not the newest or most modern hotel on Langkawi it is the total package. From the moment you check in to the moment you leave nothing is too much trouble for the hotel staff. The hotel itself is located in a secluded area so you have a beach all to yourself. The beach...

We had a family holiday and our kids loved staying in the rainforest and seeing all the animals around this beautiful and luxurious resort. The staff were attentive and very helpful, everything you'd expect from a well-run 5-star resort. The amenities and hotel presentation was excellent and the signature Gulai House restaurant was a treat.

I was here a few days back. And the datai is the best resort I have ever stayed at. The location is beautiful. Very quiet and peaceful. Each and every staff member are very well trained and super duper friendly and helpful. I can't rave much about how sweet the staff is. We went with a two year old, and... More

The best of luxury resorts are identified by attention to detail and the enthusiasm of staff personal attention. The Datai does this exceptionally well. Wether simply a drink or a full meal was being served, it came with the personal attention of your server, and their interest in how to improve if it wasn't perfect. Even the chef came out... More

What an experience. Immediately booked for my in-laws from Europe as well. The location is really unprecedented. We stayed in a corner end suite but had a chance to look at the other rooms/suites (curious...). Standard room is actually already great but if travelling as couple I'd probably go for the rainforest villa. Beautiful. Most 5 star resorts are all... More
