The Danna Langkawi


Embracing the luxe and glamour of an era gone by, this Colonial-Mediterranean inspired resort pulls out all the stops when it comes to a five-star experience.

Within moments of entering the grand lobby of The Danna it’s clear that you’re in for an exceptional stay. As you sip on a welcome drink as you check in while one of the spa team gets to work on your shoulders, this kind of flawless service is something we could all get used to. The attentive staff effortlessly anticipate your every move ensuring you want for nothing during your stay offering a truly personalised experience. Paired with the colonial architecture and décor of the hotel – think high ceilings, polished marble floors and statement chandeliers - The Danna exudes old-world charm.

Days here are spent lounging on the sun deck by the 3-tier infinity pool, the largest on the island or unwinding along the pretty stretch of private sand overlooking the Andaman Sea perhaps taking a break to Afternoon Tea in the quaint Straits & Co. café. For those seeking further relaxation, head to the top floor and indulge in some quality down-time at the luxurious spa with a bespoke massage or bathing ceremony. For those itching to explore, kayaks are available to discover the nearby coastline while back on dry land, bicycles provide a wonderful mode of transport. Just a five-minute drive from the resort, don’t miss the Langkawi Cable Car for the most fabulous island views.

The elegant colonial aesthetic extends to the sumptuous rooms and suites which are graced with high ceilings, plush four poster beds and lustrous marble bathrooms. Whichever room you opt for private balconies come as standard with beautiful French windows opening up to a selection of views from jungle covered peaks to panoramic vistas across the Andaman Sea. Scattered across the grounds, the exclusive Princess Beach and Empress Beach Villas take centre stage with their private infinity pools and direct beach access – perfect if you’re travelling with kids. The contemporary bi-folding doors and floor to ceiling windows provide tropical views across the garden through to the glistening sea with outdoor massage areas for in-villa spa treatments adding further indulgence to your stay.
