“perfect hotel to relax and enjoy”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

booked a vicroy room and it was brillent, great view of the sea, beautiffly decorated witha mix of modern and colonial, great bed. the service and staff of this organisation where wonderful and extremly attentive. the consige team tried to forefill as much as the could and where alway on hand with good local advice. if you can book a local tour for the day bit expensive but witha driver who speaks english and will show you everything you want and will help you find the little local delights. Area is a bit remote but in easy reach tourist districts.

I hope this hotel really keeps this feel and look forward to going back soon

Room Tip: worth paying for a beach front room, the sun set and rise are spectacular over the mountains and sea...

It happened to me first time: a few days before the arrival we got the mail from the hotel with the message that they warmly expect us and are able to organise transporatation from the airport, the asked us about the pillows, flowers and any wishes, also about potentilal anniversary or special occasions.
Rooms are spacious, big bed with comfortable pillows.
You can finish your breakfast with a glass of champagnie with orange juice (Buck's Fizz).
After that: endless pool and sun and another drinks and you are in heaven.

We stayed at the Danna for 7 nights and it's very difficult to think of any areas where they could improve. The service is excellent - very friendly and helpful indeed and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are perfect - very comfortable, well appointed, and nicely decorated. Food is also very good - the champagne breakfasts, snacks and happy hours by the beautiful pool, and dinner. The beachside barbecue on Friday night with traditional Asian dancing was a really nice touch. Only suggestions for improvement might be a little more variation in the breakfast menus, and the wine in the restaurant was very expensive considering that Langkawi is a duty-free island. I do recommend hiring a car to get around - there are some little restaurants in the marina area across the road, where the food is good and reasonably priced, plus there's a very convenient and cheap laundry - but to do most activities you'll need to go at least 5km, but driving on Langkawi is easy and fun, and the hotel were great arranging a small car for us.
We stayed with our kids, and there's a nice kids' club, decent kid-friendly choices on the menus, and all the staff were very friendly to us and the kids.
We're really happy we stayed here, and would highly recommend it to others.

This is a beautiful hotel. With amazingly great service and great rooms.

As you are checking in, they bring you drinks, give you a neck massage. Off to such a great start. The rooms are also gorgeous. The bathrooms are big and opens up to the bedroom. There are two sinks so you and your partner won't be fighting over sink space. The bed's wonderful. There's a small balcony. Not amazing, but pretty cool still. The rooms are great.

Breakfast is decent too. The spread was good and pretty tasty. Not amazing but definitely average good.

The pool was pretty, but we had very little chance to use it as it rained quite a bit when we were there. I felt sorry for the pool boys who had to constantly turn the chairs and bring the pads to shelter or pick tables from the pool whenever the storm blows in.

Now comes the bad part. There is a design flaw in the architecture. When the rain comes, it COMES right into the walkways. And often, the place is puddled all over. And this is on tiles. We didn't have any accidents, and I hope there weren't any.

The location was not ideal. We were far from everywhere. We rented a car which was very useful as it afforded us to go further to get food and supplies and sightseeing. The beach was not the best on the island. I prefer the north.

Conclusion: Loved the place to just flake at the hotel. The hotel itself is great but it's location and certain design flaws work against it. May go back.

Dear Cinophel,

Thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to Langkawi.

We are delighted to learn that you enjoy the welcome treatments and the rooms, we hope these attractions made your stay a comfortable one. Our 3-tiered swimming pool is indeed an ideal place to relax, we are sorry to know that the weather was not very favourable during your stay with us.

We also noted your feedback on the rain coming in to the walkway. We highly concern about our guests’ safety, hence, we usually send Housekeepers to clear the water and dry the floor after rain.

The hotel feels as if it's far from the crowd, but we are only 20minutes away from Pantai Cenang. We are most suitable for a quality vacation as Pantai Kok is away from all the hustle and bustle but at the same time, easily accessible to Langkawi International Airport and Pantai Cenang by car.

It is indeed convenient to move around on the island. Rent a car like you did is one of the options; it is especially flexible for families. Through the hotel concierge, guests can also request a taxi, rent a car or a chauffeured driven island tour. Telaga Harbour Park next to the hotel has a convenient store and some restaurants, these facilities may be convenient to those who prefer to spend their time in the hotel.

We thank you once again for giving us an opportunity to render services to you and your family, we hope to welcome you again in the future.

Regards,
Pascal Masse

We had originally booked to stay at the Danna for 4 nights before moving to the north of island to stay for 5 nights at The Datai. If you are considering the two The Datai far exceeded our expectations.
We booked this hotel because the reviews were amazing and yes the hotel is great, staff so helpful but we just found something missing.
The one thing I cannot help to mention is the construction work nearby. Unless you sat next to the jacuzzi all we could hear was the constant drilling and hammering of the rock face. I hate to mention this fact because the hotel were so helpful when we said we wanted to check out early due to the noise they even refunded our money which we didnt ask them to do they suggested it and promptly did the same.
Most of the shops in the marina were shut or had never even opened and to us it just lacked any atmosphere.
Plus points the rooms were faultless. We had a Marina View room and it was huge. Everything that could possibly have been thought of was there. Brilliant room.
Sorry Danna to tell tales on the construction site but I wish someone had put this on Trip Advisor before I went.

Dear 963Amanda,

We highly appreciate the opportunity to have you and your partner during your recent visit to Langkawi.

We note your were overall satisfied with the room, hotel building and services rendered by our staff but disappointed with the road works happening outside the hotel.

We have several times addressed the same concern with the road builder to communicate our discomfort with the hope it would reduce the disturbance to its minimum. However, the builder has been awarded with licenses from the local authorities.

Meanwhile, 963Amanda the road works is temporary and currently is approximately 600 meters from the hotel’s main entrance. The project is aimed at realigning and broadening the current access road. Whilst there is no way for the Hotel to stop the road works, we are assured that the disturbance will reduce as the works progress.

We regret that you were disturbed by the noise caused by the road works, but we hope this isolated case would not deter you from staying with us. Nevertheless, we hope to welcome you and your partner again in the future.


Best regards,
Pascal Masse

Our stay at the Danna was simply wonderful. The rooms are spacious with big balconies and all the amenities you need, personalised room service and thoughtful touches. The hotel is grand, elegant, and sophisticated with lovely spaces, layout and cool breeze throughout. The central rainforest courtyard and huge, cleverly designed pool along with games rooms, beach and facilities mean you have everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. We also liked the little marina next to the hotel which has lots of good restaurants to choose from and gives a nice alternative in the evening. The beach and pool are clean, quiet and well staffed. Food is superb with good choice and quality. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
