“Insomniacs, beat that!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

We flew straight to Langkawi after our wedding & sleep at the Danna was perfect. The beds are uber comfy. Was having insomnia earlier and the bed helped beat that.

The good: The entire compound was perfect! Beautiful & romantic. Toiletries are from crabtree & evelyn, and so perfect. Bathtub, of a good size, no, its a perfect size! Deep and wide, just right for honeymooners.

The nah: The poolside service is quite sad. 1st time, we got a cold towel & snack. We had to prompt for ice water. We had patronise the place and ordered cocktails too so thought it will be nice to ask. 2nd time, literally 0 service. So quite disappointed there.

The impt to note: Staying at the Danna is not cheap but that is what makes it perfect. The exclusivity, being away from lotsa noises n kids. The food though pricey is one of the best quality food served. The spa though expensive is one of the best served. Forget about spending $$$ elsewhere. Just do everything within the danna & be pleasured. Lastly, people with sensitive nose, asthma be careful as some parts of the hotel is quite dusty.

As per other reviewer comments, this hotel definitely hits the mark on everything one expects in terms of service and facilities so I'll limit my comments to things that can be improved of which I can think of only two: (a) serve freshly squeezed juices for breakfast and (b) have an on-premises doctor. Will definitely stay here again next time we visit Langkawi.

Fantastic hotel, the friendliest of friendly staff, the best breakfast buffet we have ever experienced and I would recommend anyone to go there.
We had a room on the 4th floor with views out onto the Marina - huge, comfortable bed, enormous bathroom with shower and bath.
The pool area is great, lots of room and choice of sunbeds.
Restaurants nearby offer a huge choice from Russian (we didn't try it) to Tapas and Pizza (which we did - both good). The Privilege Restaurant was excellent.
What really makes the hotel is the staff - from the highly visible senior management team to people working in the gardens - everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay was a memorable one.

Have just return from holiday in Malaysia the last 9 days of ehich were spent at Danna Langkawi. We could not find fault. Most comfortable spacious hotel and all staff most friendly and helpful. Well placed next to Marina with several god alternative eating places to ring tthe changes on 9 day stay.

We would not hesitate to stay again or recommend to others

One tends to expect a lot from 5-star hotels given the price you have to pay, and the Danna certainly doesn't disappoint. From the welcome back-massage, to providing a spare room for your pre-departure clean up, everything about the service is thoughtful and well executed. Staff were friendly and attentive, but not overbearing and pretty much everything about the service was just pitched at the right level. The breakfast spread is pretty tasty and we had a lovely spa treatment. Would definitely come back again.

We just loved The Danna so much that we extended our stay by two days, and are already planning to return in the dry season, ie early in 2014. The staff are just fabulous and very good fun, the setting is sublime and not even three days of rain spoiled the experience. On the contrary, two rather burned out people started to bloom and bounce again. Adding to the fun was the Langkawi regatta, based in Marina. Effortlessly the best resort or hotel of the many we have stayed in for work or relaxation.

Room Tip: Go for a Marina room or a suite. It's an added delight to luxuriate in the bath and watch the wo...
