We only managed to stay one night The only room available was a Corner Suite which was huge and expensive. Expensive in relation to what you get. The suite is not badly designed but what was striking was how badly it needs to be refurbished. The floor needs to be resurfaced - this is so 90s... the bathroom needs to...

We have just stayed here. What can we say? Fantastic service. The people make the whole trip. Beautiful secluded beach, lovely villa but overall it is the warmth of the welcome that stays with you. The staff clearly love what they do and it shows. Being with them is not like staying in your average hotel. There is no indifference...

The resourt is amazing and the env. is perfect. Suitable for all kind of people families and so. Good relaxing, stress relieve and good food. But make sure to buy snaks on the way as there is no nearby grocery.

If you’ve read the hotel’s official website, everything it says is true. There are rooms in the central building and there are villas peppered across the surrounding rainforest. If you get a beach villa, you’ll be delightfully sandwiched between Datai Bay (Andaman Sea) in front and rainforest behind. If not a beach villa, you could still be walking distance (a...

We stayed here a few months ago with our 18 month old daughter and couldn't have loved it more. We stayed in a villa which was huge and beautiful. The bathroom was a haven of happiness! Coffee on the balcony looking for monkeys in the morning was great fun, and living in the middle of the rainforest really brought you...

This was our first time to Langkawi and after a stay at The Datai, I do not think it will be our last! We stayed for 6 nights in 2 Superior Villas nestled within the rainforest connected by a veranda with an outdoor dining table. The Villas were breathtaking, with a large bedroom with an extremely comfortable bed and an...

We stayed at the Datai over the long weekend and all I can say: it was perfect! The staff was very accommodating, the rooms were nice and included a huge bathroom with a separate tube and shower. The complex is situated perfectly into the hilly landscape and surrounded by sluggish rain forest with direct access to a private beach. Two...

We were a bit apprehensive about re-visiting Datai as our first experience last year was so good we wondered whether it would live up to our expectations. We needn't have worried as the experience the 2nd time around was the equal of our first. The level of communication between the resort staff is incredible...they are so well briefed on each...
