We stayed for a few days to wind down towards the end of our honeymoon - after travelling through Asia we just wanted somewhere to sit, and do nothing.
To that end, the Danna was the perfect location. It was quiet, and peaceful. It wasn't busy around the pool area (but can imagine that during peak, the pool would be very busy and the deck chairs would be hot property!). The pool itself was stunning, and the perfect place to sit and sip on cocktails; or mocktails, depending on the time of day.
Staff were exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to please. The cool drink and short massage on arrival (especially after an overnight flight) were very appreciated. The only negative was the one breakfast we had there was not great - we had a feeling that the chef was away.
The room itself was large and stunning, and the bathroom was divine. The A/C was a bit tricky to use and we should have asked a staff member for instructions, but didn't. I utilised the gym most days and it was a great area to work out - with a lovely view. The architecture of the hotel itself was absolutely gorgeous - beautiful Colonial style.
Pantai Cenang is a cheap cabride away and most evenings we went in there for dinner, very good value throughout the township, with drinks at the beach on one of the bars.
I've already recommended this to friends. Thanks to the Danna management for the bottle of Moet and Chandon to celebrate our honeymoon!
