2 families from NYC stayed there mid-August. We reserved 2 one bedroom villas and was upgraded to pool villas which meant we had extra facility with living/dining room and a private fresh water pool. You really didn't have to leave this compound - we had it all. But it just gets better throughout the resort. Everyone is super friendly and...

If you are looking for rest and relaxation this is the place for you. We have stayed in a lot of lovely hotels but I think this is one of the best. The hotel is stunning set high up in the rainforest. The main lobby and bar area look down on the adult only pool and long walkway down through...

I stayed at The Datai last year for my honeymoon. We stayed in a superior villa, nestled into the lush jungle but close to the main hotel and beach, accessed by foot or golf buggy. The staff are so friendly and polite, they could not do enough for us. If they saw us walking anywhere they would flag us down...

We stayed at the Datai for one week in June. The location of this hotel is beautiful with an excellent mix of nature and luxury. As this hotel is remote you can't go out to restaurants (without a car) but this was no issue for us as the Indian/Malaysian and Thai restaurants were lovely (best hotel restaurants we have eaten...

Recently stayed at the Datai. Had read the reviews and had high expectations. All expectations were not only met but exceeded. We actually extended our stay and are planning to return again next year. The resort is secluded with fantastic amenities. Staff are amazing. Just book, and have a great holiday.

My husband and I just stayed at the Datai for four nights. It was heaven. We aren't honeymooners - been married twelve years but even we got caught up in the romance of the place. We stayed in a Premium room which was gorgeous, plenty big enough for us with a view out to the trees of the rain forest....

The Datai is a memorable place to stay. Walking down to the beautiful private beach through the rainforest, trying to spot wild monkeys, hornbills, flying squirrels, etc is almost unbeatable. Add to that the staff who are excellent and look after you very well, making you feel very utterly spoilt, the amazing food (although I would say a little overpriced...

Great experience for my first-time in Langkawi! Datai is very much to my taste, understated luxury with very attentive services. Beautiful beach with just the right privacy (& attention) anyone would ask for. The food was above my expectation as well. I like the guestroom as well, nicely designed dressing & bathing areas, comfortable bed... All staff we encountered there...
