“This well-established luxury hotel is a firm favourite of those visiting Langkawi. Set in a secluded bay with crystal clear water and powder white sand, it’s the perfect beach retreat for the whole family. A recent renovation has taken The Datai to the next level with refreshed rooms, more cultural experiences and a Nature Centre. The spa hidden away in the rainforest is an ideal place to switch off and unwind.”
Surrounded by ancient rainforest next to a secluded powder-white beach, The Datai Langkawi is a tranquil retreat ranked as one of the Leading Hotels of the World. With its private beach and abundant tropical wildlife, it’s a haven for those looking to reconnect with nature and soothe mind, body and spirit.
The 124 luxurious rooms, suites and villas are divided amongst the canopy, rainforest and beach. The canopy rooms are in the main building, while the rainforest villas are on stilts deep in the forest, some with private plunge pools. The beach villas have private pools and butler service, while the Datai Estate offers five bedrooms, two pools, butler service and a private chef.
Start your day with a champagne breakfast, then choose between four dining options; Malay, Thai, international and seafood. The lounge serves afternoon tea and cocktails.
Explore the rainforest with guided nature walks, enjoy water sports, learn regional cookery, play a round on the neighbouring championship golf course, and be pampered in the spa.
