“Superb holiday at The Danna”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Basically I don't really go for Colonial type of hotel but staying at The Danna have change my perception. The Danna was awesome. Our room was being upgrade to Marina Room and the size is great, bed was very comfortable and even the extra bed given is also comfortable. Thanks to Ms Sharifah , the GM Mr Pascal Emile & Mr. Hafiz Hashim. Buffet breakfast was good. Service was excellent. My kids loves the pool and the Kids Club so much. It is just that not much activity as shown in the list due only my son was the only one there. Will definitely come again to The Danna for my next trip.

Room Tip: Go for Marina Room. The room & balcony are large.

Exceptional service and real pampering during our 4 day/ 3 night stay. From the time we checked in (with the welcome drink and massage!) until the time we regrettably had to leave, the staff at the Danna made us feel like royalty. The pool was absolutely amazing and the breakfast to die for. If you want some pampering at a very reasonable price don't go past the Danna. We are already dreaming about our next visit!

This is a very late review, but I feel bad not giving it a review as the The Danna was a superb hotel and amazing staff who helped us organise all the different activities. The staff was really helpful and were ready to help us enjoy our experience. The food especially the breakfast was delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel and assure you, you will not regret your decision. we would certainly be staying there again.

My partner and I stayed here in February as part of a 2 week break to several spots in Malaysia and Singapore. Langkawi was by far our best stop. Our Hotel the Danna was excellent, Our room ( a merchant room) was a great size, the bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. Food at all outlets in the hotel was very good and there was nothing that the staff would not do for you, It was a truly relaxing location. The pool is huge and we could always find sun beds and we are not the earliest risers.
My boyfriend proposed on the beech by the Danna which topped this amazing holiday off. I know he was particularly impressed with all the help the staff gave him prior to the event.
The island hopping tour in Langkawi is a must - The islands you visit are uninhabited (except for monkeys!) and are truly stunning. We did find the tour packages much cheaper from our tour operator rather than the hotel.

Dear holibobs-Joy,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review on TripAdvisor despite it’s been 3 months since you stayed with us.

We are glad that you and your partner enjoyed the stay and he has gotten all the help that he needed for the proposal. There are many vendors offering island hopping on the island, tour content and prices are varied. Besides island hopping, there are many more activities you should try out should you come back to Langkawi again.

We thank you again for choosing The Danna Langkawi holibobs-Joy. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.


Best regards,
Pascal Masse

Stay here if you're after a relaxing holiday in classy surrounds with exceptional service. The hotel is in as new condition with top notch fittings and the service is the best we've experienced. They really look after their guests, tailoring to our specific needs given we were travelling with a 2 year old. Nothing is ever too much trouble and the pool area is particularly great to spend a relaxing day out. The rooms are incredibly spacious with high ceilings. Thank you the Danna.

Stayed here over the Easter holiday break and it was a wonderful stay. If there was a 6-star rating available here, I would give it! It is definitely a luxury hotel, everything from the modern facilities, decor, to the amazing service. We were initially scheduled to stay at their sister hotel (Pelangi Beach Resort), but had to reschedule at the last minute. The Pelangi then became full but their reservations manager (Jusliana) was absolutely terrific in relocating us to The Danna.

And what a stay! The kids loved the pool and the kids club. The breakfasts and meals were fantastic (tip - you won't necessarily get better or cheaper food down at the marina, often just a substandard service in our experience, often better to stay on site). The pool is amazing and a great way to spend a day relaxing. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel also had an on-site car rental service, which was super easy to arrange, and not having to deal with airport car rental companies. Everything was fantastic, even the small touches such as the welcome massage and drink at check in, the free flowing champagne available at breakfast, cool towel face washers being handed out along with fruit poolside, Easter gifts that the kids received at kids club (Loges in particular was wonderful and patient). It capped off a great stay.

Dear Nico C,

Thank you for staying with us over the Easter holiday break and taking the time to share your staying experiences on TripAdvisor.

We are glad that we had the opportunity to be of hospitality to you and your family and that you enjoyed the stay with us. As part of our The Danna Experience efforts, we offer the welcome drink with neck & shoulder massage and complimentary fruit platters, cold water and more by the poolside. We are delighted that these gestures enlightened your holiday experience.

The on-site car rental is operating by a vendor, however, to rent a car or to organize an island tour can be easily arranged through our Guests Experience Planners. We are very pleased to know that your kids had fun at the Kids Club. With helping hands from our associates such as Loges to have them occupied, we hope you managed to make time to enjoy yourself too!

We thank you once again Nico C for writing us a lovely review. We hope to hear from you again and look forward to welcoming you and family back to The Danna Langkawi.


Best regards,
Pascal Masse
