Unique nature & beach experience
At the end of the road in old rain forrest, Datai exceeded all my high expectations. The Nature center is an unique facility and do join the complementary nature & beach walks with the inspiring naturalists. Beautiful beach, resort design and area combined with fresh fish & seafood and a fine wine list create an amazing tropical experience.

You have to see and experience The Datai to believe its magic. Unbelievably beautiful setting. It was my first but not my last visit. Luxuriously quiet, serene, unspoilt paradise.

It was an amazing experience even for 1 night stay. From the moment of arrival to the checkout, the service was marvelous, the Rain-forest Villa was exquisite. I like the bathroom and the overall villa layout very much ! Breakfast was served in the villa, we felt like a royal for a day! Too bad it was raining season me and my son had just enough time to swim in the family pool before it rained. I wish to stay in the private pool villa some other time in the future.

Exceptional 10.0
Expensive, but Perfect
This is probably the nicest place we have ever stayed. The location is out of a movie. The staff is incredibly friendly and makes an effort to get to know you. The room was amazing and had fresh fruit every day. Every meal was delicious. They are always making sure you have enough water when you are on the beach and I got a free kayak rental. There is a small island nearby that is an easy paddle to get to, where I found a huge (and docile) monitor lizard. Everything was perfect and we had a very relaxing time. The only thing to watch out for are the monkeys. The staff tries to keep them away, but occasionally we'd see one, and they can be aggressive.

Amazing place, hidden gem
Amazing stay. I did not expect it would be this good. The staffs are highly trained and respect the guests whereever you meet them. Luxury room where you dont feel like leaving it, but once outside the room you are lured into the rainforest peacefulness, and further down to the end of staircase and walkway, there it is, the Datai beach, very private and beautiful. Dont worry, there is buggy service too if you have trouble with stairs and long walk. The beach is such a treatment to the eye and mind. The water is clear, the beach sand is white and smooth, we could lay down the chair and stay the whole day and swim once in a while. The staff will walk around the beach and serve cold water to guests without charge. Many water sports activities, like canoe, sailing, snorkeling for free. There is also slot for nature walk around the hotel where you learn about the wild animal there. It is indeed however a very secluded area, far away from tourist place in Langkawi. Hence, do expect that you will have to dine in at the hotel restaurants or in room dining, which are really delicious, but of course pricey. What touch me the most is they prepare the prayer mat for Muslim, and fold it nicely on the couch. Such a great personal gesture and thoughts for the guests. We went on our 1st anniversary, so they even prepare more in the room, with rose petals, chocolate mousse, and fruits. I feel that 2 nights are okay, but if come again, definitely 3 nights or more. To me the price justify.
