The Datai is the best resort that we ever stayed at! Our expectations were exceeded day after day; we were utterly spoiled by the stunning beauty of the place combined with magical wildlife and kind, attentive staff willing to make every moment of our stay special.
We are especially thankful to Sham, our villa butler who looked after us exceptionally well.
I thought my husband was crazy when he upgraded our room to a beach villa. But my god, it was to die for! Our villa was spacious, spotless and incredibly luxurious, including two fully stocked minibars and the biggest bath tub I have ever seen! The beach villas (I think there are about 15 altogether) are a short walk (10 minutes) or even shorter buggy ride from the restaurants, and the walk through the jungle and the privacy they offer are definitely worth it.
We stayed eight days and so were able to sample all of the restaurants — all are fantastic. The manager of the Beach Club and our server Karen always made us feel so welcome that it quickly became our favourite place in the resort to eat.
We loved every second at The Datai- from walking the grounds looking out for monitor lizards, flying lemurs, macaques and dusky leaf eaters (too cute!), to relaxing at the spa and of course wining and dining.
Thank you to everyone at the Datai for the wonderful experience. We left feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, and relaxed... And albeit a little sad saying goodbye to this stunning oasis.
