We arrived in Langkawi after spending a week in Singapore and looking forward to a few days of peace and relaxation. We were picked up from the airport in a Jaguar XF by Mr.Nirosh, our guest experience planner. From the moment we sat in the car, we were made to feel at home. The hotel is about 20 minutes from the airport and nestled amidst a brilliant ensemble of mountainous rain forest and the coastline with an added touch of a tiny harbour where private yachts lay anchored.
The check-in process was highly personalized and we were quickly led to our room. In our room, upon the bed, lay a pair of swans made out of towels symbolizing and celebrating the honeymoon that we were on (which I had mentioned somewhere in passing, in one of the e-mails to the hotel). We loved this personal touch and attention to detail. Being a new hotel, everything is just amazing and we hope it continues to stay that way for years to come.
The Danna has amazing restaurants but were a little too expensive for our budget, hence we opted, like many other guests to eat at one of the many restaurants that dot the harbour. We spent a good part of the next day at the hotel's pool, which is, the biggest in Langkawi !!. A private beach that offers among other things, tranquility adds to The Danna's well thought out location. Also added to the benefit of the location is the Langkawi Cable car which is about 5 minutes from the Hotel and is a must for anyone visiting here.
We would like to specially mention, above everything else, the contribution of each and every staff member for making this hotel, perhaps the best in Langkawi in such a short span of time. Every person in the hotel makes you feel special, like royalty. We would exclusively mention Nirosh, our guest experience planner, who was there to pick us up at the airport and took care of the entire stay. Next up, is Dayang, who met us at the restaurant during breakfast and ended up becoming a great friend with whom we will stay in touch and last but not the least, our enthusiastic driver Mie who took us around the Island.
We strongly recommend The Danna for anyone visiting Langkawi. Its peaceful, tranquil and invokes a sure shot Wow ! And for all Shah Rukh Khan fans, he stayed here for two weeks recently !
