Having had a fantastic stay at the Danna last year we didnt think that they would be able surpass the quality of our stay last year, but we were wrong. From the minute that we arrived we were met by the management who supervised our check in and asked if we would like breakfast, after a long journey from Sydney. Suddenly all of the waiters and staff who we got to know last year, came forward and welcomed us including the new executive chef who is excellent.
We now know the area really well. The Danna has the best location on the island, only 15 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes from the amazing cable car, 20 minutes from Cenang Beach, and a 2 minute walk to a wider range of quality restaraunts at the marina while you view some incredible boats.
The hotel will organise any trip that you desire but I would highly recommend the mangrove tour and the jet ski island tour through MEGA Jet Ski. Both are brilliant trips. Ask for ANNYA who has been on most of the trips herself and will show you videos of what you can expect. She will book everything for you including collection to and from the hotel, iced water, beach towels etc, all you have to do is turn up on time, so easy.
The free wifi works really well at the hotel both in your room and by the pool. There are plenty of sun beds for everyone to use with ease withe plenty of towels that are changed regularly . The staff their are very attentive and will bring you drinks including free iced water throughout the day. The restaraunt is first class and very reasonable for a hotel of this standing. We make a point of getting to know several of the waiting staff who went out of their way to give superb service, thank you to AMIROL, MARNIA AND INGO. Plus the whole team put on an amazing BBQ on the Friday with freshly cooked lobster, steak etc. It really was a feast accompanied by traditional Malaysian music and dancers who were a variety of staff, it was a great evening. Also try the banana porridge, sounds strange BUT it is delicious.
Drinks and wine are great value especially if you take advantage of the various happy hours, find out the times and seek out KANNAN the cocktail waiter who is very skilled and making the perfect drink to your requirements. You can also take drinks through to the restaraunt which adds value.
Another tip is to hire a car with a driver who for around £30.00 will give you a half day tour of the island and will take you to places that other tourist do not see MIZI was our driver, a real character even though he is a Liverpool fans we had a great laugh with him and time was never an issue he brought us back half an hour late.
Finally everyone at athe Danna is committed to delivering an outstanding service, hence their award for the best service of any hotel in Langkarwi, combined with there excellent location it really is the perfect choice. We will definitely be back for a third visit and do not see how they will improve on our previous visits..
Thank you to everyone who we met at The Danna who made our stay to special and memorable, you even supplied round the clock sunshine,
The Clark Family.
