“Absolute heaven with perfect service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

I am staying here with my husband at the moment. It is wonderful, the place is beautifully situated, the pool is huge and the service is incredibly good. I cannot fault it.
We are in a room with a sea view, across the infinity pool and it's beautiful.
The breakfasts are the best I've ever had, lots of choice of Western and Eastern food.
The only downside for me has been being badly bitten by mosquitoes on the first night but the staff sprayed our room after I asked and I've not been bitten since ( and I'm the only person here with bites so it must be my extra tasty blood!)

Although the hotel is not as grand as some of the best 5 star hotels in Langkawi, the rooms here were amazing, very spacious and very comfortable. The service provided and the staff in the hotel are remarkable. All the staff we came across were very kind and helpful even the manager on duty went out of his way on one occasion to help me with something, which I found to be very nice. The breakfast was truly amazing and more than I expected and the pool is very pleasant and very enjoyable. Even after checking out and leaving my jacket behind the hotel was kind enough to deliver it to me the following morning which I consider exceptional service. Overall this Hotel exceeds expectations and I would recommend it to all who are planning a visit to Langkawi.

We are a family of six (four children) from Spain and have stayed in the Danna for three nights. The experience was fabulous for the whole family. Everything was phenomenal. They collected us from the airport on a brand new minivan with Carmen (one of the members of the reception staff who spoke Spanish). They informed us in our short way to the hotel about the area, the island, the restaurants and the potential trips to make. Checking in was a lovely experience (back massage included). We requested a move to an ocean view room (it is clearly worth it) and they put us into two lovely connecting rooms. The rooms are to die for and the view is really stunning.
The pool is the best I've ever seen in a hotel and they give attention to every detail.
Breakfast is terrific, you can order smoothies, waffles, eggs and even salmon or beef with tins of stuff in the buffet (sushi, toast, croissants, fruit, cereals.......). The hotel is really quiet and great for a complete rest but also has the marina in the back with great restaurants (the Privilege in the upper floor was our favorite with a lovely creme brûlée). The only downside was the BBQ on Sunday night as the food was just average and not comparable to the menu dishes you can get everyday. The mushroom soup and the lobster bisque are outstanding and there is great coffee and a nice room to play pool. Lovely spa where you get superb treatments at a very fair price.
The service is unique with over two servants per guest and all of them superbly trained. They let us a room on the last day for a shower before leaving to the airport.

We will definitely come back and we strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for affordable Asian luxury. Congratulations to the hotel management for the great work and smile your people transmit. Best regards tons Sheila who was our favorite waiter and the girls in the Spa.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are a must. It is worth to pay the difference.

Dear Txemari7,

We thank you very much for choosing us for your family stay in Langkawi Txemari7. Your lovely review is very much appreciated.

The pick-up experience that you mentioned here and the welcome treatments are our typical practices to create The Danna Experience. The Viceroy rooms have direct view of the largest infinity pool on the island and The Andaman sea, those who enjoy finer things in life will definitely appreciate it. We hope you also experienced the servings by the pool? It’s our signature The Danna Experience too!

Meanwhile, we also noted that you enjoyed our breakfast served. With the combination of a buffet and a la carte menu, we strive to maximize the food items to suit all palates. Whilst your comment about the BBQ buffet have been taken note, we are glad that you also indulged in other dishes at The Planter’s.

Since you pampered yourself at The Danna Spa, we hope you and family also took advantage of our complimentary yoga by the beach. It’s available on Mondays’ and Thursdays’ morning and evening, and it’s conducted by our professional instructor trained in India.

Txemari7 we once again thank you for staying with us and your glowing review. We look forward to being of hospitality to you and family again the next trip you return to Langkawi.

Best regards,
Pascal Masse

We were so relieved we ended up booking our 7 day stay at the Danna Langkawi. It was such a wonderful and comfortable experience we can't wait to go back again. The staff there were incredibly helpful, and always had a huge smile, ready to help us in any way. Justine, thank you for taking care of all our little requests and for making sure our stay was taken care of from every start to end. Carmen, thank you for welcoming us to the hotel and showing us around! Katrina thank you for always smiling and taking care of our children's needs, especially my daughter's Furby :). Chloe, you made our stay so comfortable, thank you for taking such great care of our children in the kids club, especially during those rainy afternoons! Finally Windi, thank you for anticipating all our needs at breakfast before we even ask for it. Everyone really helped make this one of our most memorable vacations ever!

As for the hotel, let me give you some additional information:

Hotel

Excellent condition. Everything looks and feels brand new. From the chaise lounges placed in the pool, to the ocean hammocks, the bedrooms, and the restaurant! We were so lucky to get upgraded to a sea view room which was truly incredible. The view each morning was spectacular. The hotel also provided to extra beds for our daughters which fit very comfortable in the room.

Pool & Sea
The infinity pool is incredible. There's nothing like swimming in a pool overlooking the beautiful ocean. The private beach is dotted with three beautiful islands very close to the shore which makes it the perfect image you can imagine. The hotel also have their own water sports which was great fun. We took out a jet ski, and banana boat and it was so much fun.

Facilities
The gym is small but well equipped, located on the top floor overlooking the beautiful mountains of Langkawi. The Spa is wonderful as well, especially the couples massage room and steam room. Besides the kids club, we really enjoyed the games room which had a darts board, and a few board games.

Restaurant
Breakfast was wonderful and delicious. Don't hesitate to ask for anything that may not be on the buffet, the staff will do everything they can to bring it to your table. We were also lucky enough to have the dinner BBQ buffet one evening with the traditional Malaysian cultural show which was wonderful!

Location
The hotel is quite secluded from downtown where all the restaurants are (about 25 minutes drive). However, there is a marina less than 200 feet from the hotel which has a few restaurants, a bakery, and a laundromat.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking to spoil themselves in utter bliss!

Room Tip: Go for a sea view room on the 3rd floor.

Dear W A,
We at The Danna Langkawi thank you very much for choosing us during your recent family vacation in Langkawi.

The hotel is only less than 4 years old, we take good care of the hotel so she would present her best to our guests. As you might already know, all of our rooms are larger than usual measuring from 60sqm onwards, hence, extra bed or over-sized luggage can be fitted in comfortably.

Housing the largest infinity pool on the island means our guests can swim freely without feeling congested. The Danna Fitness and The Danna Spa are located side by side. Did you find bottled water and apples in the fitness centre? We are glad that you pampered yourself at The Danna Spa and the kids had some fun at the kids’ club. We hope you and family also made use of the billiard room and reading room?

We are very delighted that most of our guests enjoyed our breakfast served. As we continue to maintain our guests’ satisfactory level, our culinary team will try their best to satisfy even the most discerning taste buds.

Meanwhile, your kind compliments for Justine, Carmen, Katrina, Chloe and Windi have been made know to them. They are pleased that they managed to make your stay even more memorable.

We thank you once again for staying with us and taking the time to write us a lovely review W A. We hope to welcome back you and family should your future travel plan bring you back to Langkawi again.

The customer service and friendliness of staff was beyond amazing, the location was paradise and the facilities were luxurious. We stayed in the Grand Merchant room which was huge and the kind of place that makes your jaw drop! The bath looking out over the forest and mountains was magical and the balcony had a partial sea view. The pool was stunning, I felt like a child not wanting to leave at 7pm when they shut it. Couldn't have asked for anything more. The staff went beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and everyone always had a smile on their face. If you're going to Langkawi this is the only hotel you should want to stay at.

The hotel is amazing, probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in for all round service. The staff make the hotel. Very friendly, extremely helpful and could not do anymore for you. The rooms are lovely, the spa is great, the gym is well equipped and the pool is fantastic. It's the biggest hotel pool in Langkawi and the staff servicing the pool are great. The hotel is very close to the Cable Car and had a lovely private beach. The food in the hotel is of the highest standard and there is great variety of cuisines. Breakfast is served until 10:30am and again is very nice.

The welcome we received was excellent, my wife and I both receiving a 5min shoulder massage as we waited to check in. We booked the Danna Indulgence package at the spa and was it great. My wife and I also did a jet ski tour with Mega Water sports which I booked online before we got there. Although not very cheap, it was the best way to tour the mangroves. Another fantastic day.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Marina View view and loved the room and felt the balcony was more private than the Se...
