My wife and I recently stayed at the Datai Langkawi for our honeymoon, we were greeted promptly and warmly at Langkawi airport by one of their chauffeur drivers who took us to the hotel (approx 40 mins away). The staff at the hotel were welcoming and arranged for all of our bags to be taken to our villa whilst we...

We have just returned from an 11 night stay at The Datai and after reading so many reviews on here we was expecting something amazing. The Datai is set in the beautiful rain forest with the most amazing sights and sounds and the grounds are looked after perfectly. The lay out of the hotel is also very good and you...

From the moment we arrived in Langkawi, we were treated Like royalty. The staff at the resort truly made this beautiful paradise an even more amazing experience. I would give this 6 stars if I could! Travelled here from Ireland, on our honeymoon, we arrived excited but also very tired. Expecting maybe to come out of the airport and have...

It was an unforgettable and remarkable experience from me and my family. A scenic 40 mins drive from Langkawi Airport to the resort followed by a warmth reception with full concierge service and multiple welcome drinks :) The beach front was so relaxing with the resort's private beach and pool. Nature walk in the morning is a great educational trail...

Believe me! All of the hype, and everything I extolled in my previous responses still holds true! This hotel/resort really is the premier destination! And now I've run out of superlatives, and exclamation marks.

We stayed here for two nights for our honeymoon. We ended up here, honestly, because the Four Seasons was booked for our requested dates. We rented a rainforest villa. The villa had everything we needed and then some. Tucked in the rainforest, we heard great forest noises from our porch and enjoyed watching the monkeys. It was a wonderful setting....

If you visit Langkawi, The Datai is truly a unique experience. You will NOT be disappointed! The resort is situated in a beautiful rainforest and minutes to the beach. Quiet and peaceful, the location is not for those that want to hop into town and checkout the local vibe (about 45-60 minutes to the heart of town). But if you...

We have just returned from a glorious 10 days at The Datai. This was our first visit, on recommendation from friends who know the hotel well, and The Datai didn't disappoint. Our beach villa was so spacious and elegant, equipped with everything we needed, and more! Being right on the beach was perfect and meant that the accommodation had the...

The best hotel stay we had in a life time. This place is just 'Heaven on earth" We got completely lost in the nature. Clean ,calm and peace surrounds everywhere. The guided tour of the place was simply amazing. We enjoyed every seconds of our stay at this place and got lost in nature. The scenic views from the windows...
