The Datai Langkawi


This chic hotel is an ideal choice if you're looking for peace and tranquillity in a picturesque rainforest setting.

This is an incredibly stylish hotel that blends nature and tradition; its serene atmosphere is unlike anywhere else in Langkawi. You can while away time on the white sands which overlooks the spectacular Andaman Sea, or chill out at the secluded spa, where natural products and ancient Ramuan healing techniques are used. There are two pools and a superb Nature Centre where you can take part in a number of nature activities, or listen to stories from the resident naturalist while drinking a soothing cup of herbal tea.

Dining is a real pleasure here, with each day beginning with a Signature breakfast at The Dining Room. The great variety of cuisines and unique locations mean you’ll have lots to choose from, such as authentic Malay dishes served in the rainforest at The Gulai House and the oceanside Beach Club where you can dig into Mediterranean specialities in a laid-back environment.

The elegant and peaceful vibe that can be felt throughout the resort is also reflected in the spacious rooms and villas. If you choose a Canopy Deluxe Room or Canopy Premium Room you will be in the main building, just a short walk from the hotel’s fantastic restaurants, or if you go for a gorgeous Rainforest Villa or Rainforest Pool Villa you’ll be in a stunning setting deep in the forest. You’ll find the One-Bedroom Beach Villas by the powder-white sands of Datai Bay – these luxurious rooms also have a private pool and dedicated butler.
