We enjoyed our anniversary dinner and service. We were gated with a nice bottle of wine and special cake to celebrate our special ocasión. We went for the testing menue as we cannot handle the special medium rare meat..sorry. Food presentIon and flavours were incredible delicious, also the personal service by Rahja whom also worked at breakfast.

As we always try to do, we visited the Datai for lunch whilst on holiday in a separate resort on the island. Yet again, the food was fantastic, the service excellent and the ambience was relaxed and friendly. We did have a struggle to get in for lunch as non-guests, something that we'd never experienced before, but luckily we had... More

We ate dinner here on about seven of our 13 night stay at the Datai. I found it to be superb, just like last time a year ago. The whole menu put together by Executive Chef Richard Millar is so inviting. But the key issue is that he and his team deliver. Too often seemingly fine restaurants have lovely menus,... More

Firstly, can I have a rant about a previous reviewer who claims the restaurant is only worthy of 3 out of 5? The Dining Room is NOT a Malasian/Thai/Asian restaurant. The Datai Hotel has dedicated restaurants for those cuisines. Yep, this makes me and, probably the incredibly talented executive chef Richard Mellor very angry. Rant over. The Dining Room is...

We had a tasting menu here one evening and it was absolutely outstanding. Every course was a delight to the senses - taste and presentation could not be faulted. Excellent wine list too.

Spent a week at Datai and enjoyed the breakfast buffets here throughout my stay. The morning spread is decent with plenty of fruits , juices and pastry. The special menu is great and unique for both adults and kids. We wished they had a vegetarian menu as well . The pastry is amazing, they have a huge spread. Special thanks... More
