Absolutely beautiful; Amazing service
this place is gorgeous, but what surpassed the views and facilities was the service. We have never stayed in a resort with such great service. The staff here seemed to read our minds. Before we ever had to ask for anything, there were 3-4 people offering to assist us or bringing us what it is we were thinking. The mini bar items (cokes, beer, etc) and snacks were complimentary (except for liquor), which is something we have not experienced anywhere else, and every afternoon at the beach they walked around with free ice cream cones. The fitness classes were free, which is also not offered at every 5 star hotel. The yoga venue is awesome, next to the beach but tucked away in the jungle. Our room was gorgeous, clean and filled with high quality and complimentary toiletries and accessories. The food was amazing everywhere we ate, and the buffet breakfast had complimentary mimosas and Bloody Marie’s! BAt first, we looked at the prices and were a bit shocked because they were high compared to typical Malaysian prices, but the food was excellent and each restaurant and the prices were honestly not as high as what we would’ve had to pay in the US for such a nice resort— especially considering the free amenities the hotel offered. Our son loved the free rentals for the SUP, body board and kayak, and my wife loved the gym and the helpful staff who anticipated her towel and water needs and even offered assisted stretching. She did the yoga and the core conditioning class.

Not sure where to start! The resort was stunning, from check in to check out, a lot of thought has been put into it. Absolutely loved how environmentally friendly they are, comb and toothbrush made from bamboo! No plastic use spotted throughout my 3 days stay. The luxurious hotel chains have a lot to learn from The Datai. The beach is unparalleled, lots of crabs. A very child friendly beach, and we spotted a school of fish swimming near the shore line. Very well trained staff. 2 thumbs up!

Good 6.0
I was in my rainforest pool twice while people were cleaning my room. Each time they were aware and told me they were finished and then locked me out of my room. I had to climb down into the mud and thankfully had my key to the front door. Also had no "do not disturb" signal so was getting interrupted frequently.

ore than 5 stars service
It was a excellent stay we had in datai hotel. Everything is close to perfect . We had a warm and friend welcome from Daniel , he explain everything in detail about the resort and all the information. The breakfast was good, especially the pastries. The foods at the pavilion was good with reasonable portions . The beach was okay, not as good as before. The canopy premium room is spacious and good for small family. I must say the services from the concierge to the housekeeping , the staffs were so professional. We will definitely come back. Keep up the good work datai.

Unique nature & beach experience
At the end of the road in old rain forrest, Datai exceeded all my high expectations. The Nature center is an unique facility and do join the complementary nature & beach walks with the inspiring naturalists. Beautiful beach, resort design and area combined with fresh fish & seafood and a fine wine list create an amazing tropical experience.

You have to see and experience The Datai to believe its magic. Unbelievably beautiful setting. It was my first but not my last visit. Luxuriously quiet, serene, unspoilt paradise.

It was an amazing experience even for 1 night stay. From the moment of arrival to the checkout, the service was marvelous, the Rain-forest Villa was exquisite. I like the bathroom and the overall villa layout very much ! Breakfast was served in the villa, we felt like a royal for a day! Too bad it was raining season me and my son had just enough time to swim in the family pool before it rained. I wish to stay in the private pool villa some other time in the future.
