Let me list the things that blew me away: The resident naturalist, Irshad Mobarak and his nature tours are AMAZING The rainforest villas are to die for - they are they height of luxury...

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights in a multi centre trip. The first thing I must say is to not trust weather apps - we were really worried about the weather prior to our arrival as it said thunderstorms almost every day. We witnessed 2 thunderstorms, one at night and one in the morning which lasted around...

Family holiday with friends (children aged 4 to 9). Don't be put off with forecasts for thunderstorms and rain as the weather was beautiful, sunny and warm for the majority of the days with a very occasional shower (but mainly over night). Staff were so friendly and great with the kids. Easter activities were held for the children and they...

What to tell......this is top quality !! Yes price is steep, but what you get is just great. Rainforest all around you, monkeys everywhere, big hornbills nesting, adults only pool, 4 restaurants (I think), exquisite breakfast buffet, white sandy beach where they come and serve you fruit, clean you glasses and pour you a fresh glass of water to refresh....

We arranged transportation with the hotel ad we were picked up by a limousine with cold towel and drinks, even though our flight from KL was delayed for an hour....

We spent 1.5 weeks at Langkawi. A few days at Danna based on great reviews followed by a week at Datai which was absolutely great experience! I was a bit worried on some guests complaining that the hotel is a bit worn out - nothing to worry about if you come before the hotel closes in autumn. Positives + Fantastic...
