My wife and I had eight days at the resort. We used the car transfer service and was picked up by a friendly driver. Hotel is about 15 minutes’ drive from the airport. We had a Marina bay room on the second level, the room was spacious and modern and had one of the biggest bathrooms we had seen in a hotel. Pool side is beautiful with a great pool that overlooks the beach. Small touches like complementary water when by the pool and having your sunglasses cleaned went a long way.

All staff were smiling and really helpful, they would go to every length to ensure we were looked after. Malaysian and Asian food at the resort is fantastic, the buffet breakfast was also excellent. The hotel is right on a Marina and there are a lot of other great restaurants nearby and on the marina.

Good wifi access around pool and restaurants, there was free internet access which was fast and reliable.

A great resort and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Marina Bay room, quieter and bigger balconies.

The staff are excellent and always there to help you. The Rooms are large and well maintained. The View is awesome. We had a room that overlooked the Harbour, Ocean and mountains. The pool area is huge and top notch. They have 2 happy hours each day from 5-7 around the pool and then 7-9 in the Terrace Bar. We ate at the restaurant for dinner on the first night and had a wonderful time. The food was great and service awesome. The breakfast has plenty on offer. You get a choice from the menu as well as the buffet. The staff really go out of their way to help you. Would not only recommend to friends but would come back to Langkawi just for this resort.

Last week end I and my lovely wife had a distinct pleasure of staying for 2 nights at this resort for Mom's day celebration. The stay was absolutely perfect. Front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming. Overall all the staffs was courteous and professional. Extremely clean environment , to the comfortable room and common areas. The par excellent service at the breakfast in the morning was amazing. The piano music was just so nice............ The overall experience was nothing less than exceptional, it left a great impression on us.

Hafiz, job well done.........

Valuable experience and exactly the best hotel in town. We spend 3days there and no need to go out for any event coz the hotel has everything we need...food, swimming pool, beach....nothing to add for another. Too good and definitely going back.

For the second week of our Malaysian trip we chose Langkawi and my husband decided to spend the week at The Dana. Hard to better the Shangri la from Penang but we were prepared to be amazed and very impressed by the reviews. We had contacted the hotel by email to advise them of our difficult diet (I am gluten free and he is vegetarian... any chef's hell...) and had been told we could discuss this upon arrival with the chef.
We were looking forward to infinity pool and the half board and were hoping to get a nice room as having been told they were allocated upon arrival. First time in Langkawi ... very exciting !
Very grand entrance hall, numerous member of staff rushing to welcome us, beautiful local drink and great back massage... very good start. Oh and we have been upgraded at no cost to a Grand Marchand... oh and our bedroom is a corner with two lovely windows, a great bathroom opening onto the room, a colonial sofa on the balcony, a view on the marina (sun in the morning over the hills) what else could make the first day better... a happy hour by the pool? a great table in the restaurant... gluten free bread on the table before asking... and Chef Mohamed coming to introduce himself and assuring us that we can ask him for anything possible and impossible he will oblige ! (and he did and more !).
We had a beautiful stay for the whole week from the great room (417 not to say) we had been allocated, to the very thoughtful attention of the staff who at al l time were trying to fulfill any wishes/desire we might have (Even Hanz who cleaned my sunglasses by the poolside on the last day)
We loved the infinity pool with its beautiful blue, so lovely and warm water, we always found shade when we wanted it and we loved the cool towels, the bottle of water and the cut fruit.
Little break in the afternoon at Straights the tea room for a lovely scone/macarons and beautiful coffee/tea the staff there did know us so much (thank you for those few macarons on the last day, they made my trip back home less sad...
We got great advice from the concierge and particularly Anya we kept up with us through the week and gave us lots of tips including on the car renting which allowed us to tour the island at our speed for very little cost and minimum hassle.
I had a very relaxing and luxurious time in the Spa where the staff designed a special treatment for me at no extra cost by changing various components of an existing offer.
But the top of the top was the attention we got from the restaurant staff, after enquiring of our diet on the first day, Chef Mohamed designed for me EVERY MORNING a special breakfast completely gluten free and very yummy for this one time I had nothing to envy to any other guest and it made me feel so very special, from bread to waffle and even the local roti bread with fish curry MIAM ! He also made sure diners were suitable for my husband and his vegetarian diet and several nights running designed a special menu for us. What a luxury, talk about getting back to Colonial time,,, having your very own lovely chef discussing your diner at breakfast time, we could never thank him enough for all this attention, him and other staff from the restaurant AMIRAL and MAY who made us feel some welcome and one more whom name I can not remember who made sure our favorite table was reserved for us every night.
The building is all it says on the tin, grand and reminiscent of colonial times, cool and impeccably stylish from the very large entrance hall to the bedroom. (Did I mention the piano playing during each mean?)
I would have to look very hard to fault anything in this place and I am looking forward to going back at some point in my travels to The Dana where I know the staff will welcome me opening the door by a "Welcome back"... thank you for such a lovely week
PS (please have a wee browse at my photos... I assure you the food was DELICIOUS...)

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny 4th floor gives you a goof view, avoid side of the building where...

The Danna is a lovely hotel with beautiful rooms and the best swimming pool on the Island. However it is let down by the food . The buffet breakfast is poor and they cannot cook fried eggs always overcooked. The restaurant dinner menu is the same each evening. The food is not well presented and not what you would expect from a 5star hotel. We ate at another hotel which had 4 restaurants each one excellent. There appeared at the Danna to be at least 4 highly trained chefs including the head chef who spent most of his time talking to guests so overall a lovely hotel which was failed by its catering.

Spent a week here in March in a Grand Viceroy room AI - well worth the extra. Everything is included apart from bottles of wine, but you can get wine by the glass.
From the moment we arrived to a neck & shoulder massage & welcome drink to the minute we left with our farewell chocs was faultless.
The room was spacious, very comfortable & clean & what could be better than having a bath or shower while looking over the bay.
The service we had in the restaurant was 1st class, could not believe the food choices, lobster, chataubriand & excellent local fare. We don't usually rate hotel food but the food in all the restaurants in this hotel was amazing. The service by waiting staff & the chef made you feel really special at breakfast, lunch & dinner.
My husband is not a pool person but after visiting various attractions in the morning, a private tour guide arranged for us by the hotel, again well worth it about £30 for the guide & taxi for about 3 hours each day, he was happy to sit by and in this beautiful pool, having refreshing cocktails & waiting to see what gorgeous nibbles would be brought round.
The Danna is the best hotel, the staff are so happy it rubs off on everyone else making for a happy, stress free holiday. I hope I get the chance to return.

Room Tip: Treat yourself to a Grand Viceroy, beautiful
