Believe me! All of the hype, and everything I extolled in my previous responses still holds true! This hotel/resort really is the premier destination! And now I've run out of superlatives, and exclamation marks.

We stayed here for two nights for our honeymoon. We ended up here, honestly, because the Four Seasons was booked for our requested dates. We rented a rainforest villa. The villa had everything we needed and then some. Tucked in the rainforest, we heard great forest noises from our porch and enjoyed watching the monkeys. It was a wonderful setting....

This was our first stay at the Datai. It met and exceeded every one of our expectations. The location is stunning set in a tropical rainforest where the wildlife is prevalent throughout the day and night. The walks with Irshad and Jonathan were interesting and informative. The food is superb at all of the restaurants and the service throughout was...

We stayed in a rain forest villa which is so amazing,however could not use the balcony as the monkeys are very happy to to sit and watch you from your balcony... saying that it's a small price to pay to be so up close to these wild and funny animals. Villas are very spacious but the lighting is very dull...
