“Great place for families to visit ”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

I came to Danna with my wife and two small kids. We loved our time there and will definitely go back. Some reasons include: (i) the pool is very big and in a large area shallow so the kids who can't swim too well were able to play easily whilst we sat on the edge, (ii) all the staff were really nice people and helped ALL the time, (iii) the food was great and pretty good value, (iv) kids club room was good and kids wanted to go!, (v) the adjoining rooms we had were really nicely appointed with great sea views.

It was truly pleasant to have experienced such a luxury stay at The Danna Langkawi. My family was greeted by the friendliest hotel staff ever...comfortable bed & bath too! But it was odd that my husband was not able to find razor as he thought it would be provided as an amenity...no biggie..my 2 year old enjoyed the most at the pool and the kiddie room.. I would love to come back if we visit langkawi again :)

This hotel is wonderful, from the minute you arrive you just know that it is a cut above.
We arrived after a very long journey from England, on arrival we where treated to a neck and shoulder massage and a refreshing drink, most welcome.
The room that we had was superb, it over looked the bay and pool, what a view. The Spa was wonderful too.
Breakfast was very nice, not to mention the Champagne!
The staff really make this hotel, nothing is too much trouble for them.
While we where there it was my birthday. On the day we arrived back from the pool to find that the room had been decorated will balloons and artistic towels. Wonderful. Later I received a bottle of Champagne and a cake.
We will be back on day.

Mostly everything was great as per the reviews. Rooms are fantastic, breakfast was amazing with delicious croissants and real honeycomb! That was our favourite.
If you want eggs and more of a traditional western hot breakfast you'll have to order from the menu but we really liked the cheeses, pastries, fruit..
We did dinner on a Friday night and it seemed a bit overpriced for the food actually served, I liked the mushroom soup and salmon and tried some Malaysian dishes but couldn't finish because they were so spicey. A couple of more western dishes would have been good. The Malaysian dance performances made a great end to the evening.
The pool is amazing, drinks are good, service is perfect.
We did yoga on the beach which was complimentary and the spa manager is so lovely.

What was a bit of a disappointment is that there is no sauna and steam room to use!
If you buy a spa treatment you can use a small steam room.
Most mid range hotels in aus have a sauna and/or steam room, and we always use them on holidays. For what you pay at the resort I'm baffled they don't have one.
They let us use the small steam room one day when no one was in the spa.
So if that doesn't bother you then everything else is pretty well perfect!

And the coffee and cake at the cafe is delish :)
Enjoy

Dear Lindsay M,

Thank you very much for staying with us and sharing your staying experience on TripAdvisor.

We are glad to know that you were satisfied with our room and enjoyed our food served, especially the breakfast, and the real honey comb. What else would provide better goodness than the real ones? The a la carte breakfast menu changes daily, it is to provide more choices to our guests. We noted your comment about the Friday night dinner, The Danna Grill, rest assured we will look into the menu.

We also noted your feedback about the steam room and sauna. As The Danna Spa has limited space at this point, we are unable to build separate steam rooms. However, the spa will be on the list for our future expansion plan. We hope by then the plan will allow us to make the spa an even more comprehensive one.

Once again, thank you very much for choosing The Danna Langkawi Lindsay M. We hope to welcome you back in the near future.

Was here for 5 days with my wife and daughter.

The staff at The Danna is what really stands out at this hotel. Always wearing a smile and always ready to assist and please; and genuinely so.

We arrived at the hotel to a complimentary shoulder massage which was great. Check in was easy and smooth.

The rooms were big and comfortable. Same goes for the bathroom. The balcony is a great place to hang out during the day especially if you have a great view of the bay or the sea. Our room faced the bay and was nice especially since our daughter loved staring at the boats.

Throughout our stay, we were just impressed by the service level. A shout out especially to the team at the Planters restaurant - particularly Ramesh and the pianist. The housekeeping staff also did a terrific job of cleaning the hurricane swept room of ours (as you can imagine with a 2 year old toddler and her toys).

Although slightly pricier than other hotels in Langkawi (but by no means the most expensive available), it was worth the money.

Room Tip: The bay view or sea view rooms are perhaps the best but if you plan on spending your time outdoors m...

Had truly been a wonderful 5-day-stay at The Danna. Booked 2 merchant rooms for my family. The rooms did not face the sea but the view of the mountains from the balcony was just as pleasant.

Prior to the stay, requested for a surprise for my wife as we were to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my mom-in-law's and aunt's belated birthdays which were also in June. I was not disappointed to see both rooms beautifully decorated. The balloons for the birthday ladies and the 2 white swans on the bed for my wife and I will never be forgotten. Great job, Housekeeping team!

The relaxing shoulder massage and glass of refreshing juice as a welcoming treat upon our arrival were truly appreciated. Thumbs up for that! Simple gestures like these made our stay even more pleasant.

The rooms were definitely comfortable. There were more than sufficient pillows with comfortable king-size beds. Fresh fruits were delivered to the room every day. The rooms were really clean. The hotel's housekeeping team freshen up the room twice a day! It was remarkable to observe that the staff do not enter the room with their shoes on. Goes to show how sensitive the hotel staff are to the needs of their guests.

Hotel staff were always with a smile and helpful without being too intrusive. The breakfast that we had every morning was excellent. They served buffet as well as ala carte. We don't need to queue for scrambled eggs! Our breakfast was always accompanied by the wonderful music played by the hotel's pianist and we were always attended by attentive staff like Fuad, Justine, Ramesh, Wahieda and many more. There were nice surprises like mangoes served to us during breakfast by Ramesh who seemed to know that my younger daughter loves mangoes! Wahieda also took the trouble to remember some of our favorite order during our subsequent breakfast in the restaurant.

The swimming pool area was beautiful. Quite safe for children as the staff there was quite vigilant. The pool was also near to the beach, so the kids had a chance to play in the sand when they felt bored swimming in the pool. During one of our swims, we were pleasantly surprised when we were served with complimentary curry puffs by the pool. It was really a nice gesture for the hotel guests.

Special thanks to Fuad, Ryan and Annya for coordinating my last minute request for a romantic beach dinner with my wife on our 1st night stay. Had a very good butler, Azuan to tend to our needs during the dinner. The experience was so good that we requested for a special birthday dinner for my older daughter who turned 11 years old on our final night stay. Initially opted for dinner at the restaurant but was convinced by Fuad that the celebration would be more special if it was held at the beach. True enough, it was indeed very special. Thank you Fuad!

Fuad and his team ensured that the beach was well-lighted with a special fire pit for us and we were entertained by light music in the background. We were also attended to by Satria and Hans who were attentive to our needs. Fuad and his team were really professional and careful with every detail. He assured us that there was always a plan B if the weather turned bad. Thankfully, we had clear skies on both nights!

Our appreciation to Chef Zainal, Chef Mohamed and the rest of the kitchen crew who ensured that the dinner by the beach on both days were well-prepared and excellent.

Checking out was fuss-free. We made the necessary administrative check out matters the night before as we had to catch an early flight in the morning. We had a very early breakfast at 6.30 am the next morning as we had to leave the hotel by 7 am. One of the restaurant staff, Wahieda even offered to pack us some breakfast in case we were hungry on our way back as an alternative. Although we did not take up the offer, we were touched by her concern. Lastly, not forgetting the gift boxes filled with chocolates as we left the hotel given out by the staff at the check out counter. Thanks guys! Another simple gesture that went a long way...

All in all, I've been to many excellent hotels all over the world but felt truly pampered throughout our stay here. Definitely not our last time at Danna! Keep up the good work! I do hope the management continues to appreciate the staff and do maintain this high standard of service!

Dear euphoric16 .,

First of all, thank you for writing us a glowing review on TripAdvisor, and thank you for choosing The Danna Langkawi to celebrate some very important occasions in your family.

We are glad that you and family had a memorable stay with us and were overall satisfied with our services and facilities. About the welcome room set up, we are very happy that it turned out to be surprises for the ladies.

As part of our The Danna Experience practices, guests are being offered with welcome drink and a short neck & shoulder massage upon check-in. The curry puffs served at the poolside was also part of The Danna Experiences!

It’s good to know that you and family enjoyed our breakfast accompanied by live piano music. Since our eggs items and a few other breakfast favourites are served a la carte, this allowed our guests to enjoy their breakfast with hassle-free. Of course, with dedicated associates that were mentioned by you, the breakfast experience is made even more pleasant, which we are very pleased to know.

We are glad that you had a romantic beach dinner with your wife and a birthday celebration for your daughter. While you were here and surrounded by such a splendor of nature’s beauty, what’s better way to celebrate with your loved ones other than making full use of the natural theater?

Once again, we thank you so much for giving us an opportunity to render hospitality to you and family. We look forward to welcoming you and family back to The Danna Langkawi soon!
