4 of us came to stay at the end of a trip that began in Kuala Lumpur. The Datai is quiet and peaceful with ample space to lounge and enjoy the surrounding jungle and watch for local wildlife. I felt very close to nature and it seemed like the resort was very mindful of maintaining a minimal impact on the...

My wife took me here as part of our anniversary and it was truly a paradise for us. The beach villa with private butler were just excellent. You get so very spoilt with daily afternoon tea with champagne (which was delicious) and choice of dining in room, which we loved as privacy is paramount for us. The beach which is...

The Datai was recommended by friends... and what a fanatastic time we had.. Location, service, food, everything was first class... We stayed in a corner suite in the main building, which meant it was easy to get to the restaurants and a lovely walk to the beach.. Everyday the monkeys visited.. For the first time ever, in the first week...

We spent 6 nights in a beach villa. Our experience was one of the best in all our years of roaming the world. The resort is private and the service is impeccable. The dining options are varied enough to satisfy everyone. Well done Datai team.

Spent 4 nights with the family at this resort and the experience was everything that was said in the website. A calm and serene setting in the middle of a primary rainforest. Caught sight of the rich flora and fauna, from Dusky leaf monkeys to wild boars and box fishes in the lagoon. A good escape for city dwellers.

We popped in to the Datai for lunch. Parked our hire car and walked in. They took us by buggy to the beach club and sat overlooking the sea. Lunch was lovely. Even if you aren't a resident they are very welcoming. Try it.

A wonderful, relaxing holiday in a unique setting, where there is 5 star luxury from the moment that you arrive, with watersports on the beach, wildlife walks around the grounds, and marked trails for the more adventurous.

The Data is Langkawi's premiere resort set on the North East coast in its own wonderful sandy beach. The hotel is reached in 45 minutes from the airport along a tree-lined winding road, which sets the mood for the hotel's prime position in the rainforest (whilst we were there, there was little rain and when it did rain it was...

The location - superb, the staff - extremely charming and proficient, the food - beyond belief and so many choices (trust the taster menu), the location - well I never knew the jungle could be so accommodating... Go and stay you will be amazed....
