What can I say, despite visiting during soft opening the Datai was perfect in every way . Our upgrade to a rainforest villa was amazing - monkeys in the trees and flying lemurs around the villa were a sight to be seen. The beach has to be one of the most perfect in SE Asia . What

The stunningly beautiful Datai, Langkawi has finished its huge renovation and is ready for you. I was privileged to experience the new look first hand and I must say, it was beyond what I could have imagined. Every single detail has been well thought through and the results are s

We had the pleasure of staying at this unique resort for 6 nights in early December and we have never experienced anything like it.
We knew that the hotel was still in soft opening when we booked but were delighted to be told that this meant we had been allocated a rainforest vil

One reason we visit The Datai ( this was our ninth visit ) either as a couple or with our adult children is the welcome we receive from staff at the hotel. Without exception from senior management Lyndon, Indra, Jessica to beach bar waiters we could not be made to feel more at ho

We have just come back from 10 days at The Datai, and in all honesty this is one of the most wonderful places we've ever been to. I'm not a frequent TripAdvisor poster but I feel very strongly that this place needs the recognition it deserves. The hotel's location and setting

How difficult is is to get around the property to the public areas, restaurants and the beach? My husband has difficulty with stairs and steep paths. Are there buggies we can use? Thanks for any help.
The Datai has a full range of golf buggies that go to all the different areas of the resort. They are all the time by guests. The main dining room has a ramp for wheelchair access. However they will direct you to the nearest lift and it would then only be a few steps in. We have been to the Datai 17 times and plan to return for two weeks next summer. I hope you enjoy this amazing resort.

As the hotel is situated in the rainforest are there significant numbers of mosquitos? What are the nature walks like; mosquitos (again!), many animals, length of walks and the terrain, suggested attire - walking boots or trainers? etc Any info gratefully received!
Dear Casa6458, mosquitos are usually active during dusk and dawn, you may bring along a mosquito repellant. Attires for nature walks vary according to activities. For beach walks, we recommend going barefoot. As for our nature trails, it consists of resort pathways, hence normal walking shoes or sports shoes will be sufficient. Langkawi experiences tropical weather and high humidity, we recommend comfortable and loose clothes.

"If you want a view, go for a Canopy Premium in the main building instead of a villa in the jungle - or indulge in a beach villa."
"All villas are amazing but the beach villa was perfect"
"I don’t think you can select a bad room here."
