The Datai Langkawi, Langkawi
Perfect Zen
Lovely resort, extremely comfortable and relaxing. We loved the peace and quite of Rainforest and our balcony opening up to the trees. The food was great, the spa was perfect .. we will be sure to come back after the renovation.

Perfect jungle and sea getaway
My stay at the Datai was lovely. The combination of rainforest and beach was amazing. I wish there were more rooms with a beach view as the rooms are quite dark, but there is a nice woods/tree view on higher floors and in the villas. I really enjoyed seeing the wildlife-- monkeys, pigs, etc. The breakfast was wonderful...I loved the make your own drink station with champagne. There was also nice variety in terms of food for dinner. This was the perfect getaway for a long weekend complete with a beautiful spa.

Relaxing in the nature and tranquility
I spent Chinese New Year at Datai and we couldn't have better service and tranquility. The hotel is far from the city town and transportation is only by taxi. This is the hotel most integrated to nature that I've even been. If you have the opportunity to do the discovery cruise in the exclusive boat of the hotel, please do. It's amazing. All try all the restaurants in the complex of the hotel.

The Datai
All in all our stay was great! We loved the environment as well as the facilities to our disposal. As some of the reviews said, the hotel is dated and is in need of revamping. Our room AC did not work properly and the mattress was worn out. Apart from this we enjoyed our stay and if the opportunity allows we will return.
