The Experience

The Datai Hotel, Langkawi

Located on the north-west coast of Peninsula Malaysia close to the Thai border, Langkawi is a mystical island of wild scenic beauty and aquamarine seas. It is the largest in an archipelago of 104 islands scattered across the Andaman sea, separated from the mainland by the Straits of Malacca. A natural paradise, Langkawi boasts tall forested mountains, centuries-old limestone caves, majestic waterfalls and white sand beaches. Its past is swathed with legends of romance and mystery. The Datai is just 30 minutes from Langkawi International Airport.

Accommodation at The Datai consists of 54 Deluxe & Premium rooms, 40 Forest villas, 14 Beach villas and 16 suites. All have spectacular views of the natural landscape from the verandahs. The individual free-standing villas are built high up in the tropical rainforest, connected to public facilities by a series of pathways scattered throughout the forest. Pool villas have all the features of villas plus a private deck with daybed and 3 metre x 4 metre plunge pool. The Datai’s four Pool Suites are located down near the beach next to the Beach Club.

Dining facilities include: The Pavillion, situated high up in the rainforest canopy, and serving authentic Thai cuisine in an open-air setting; The Dining Room offers Malaysian and western specialties at breakfast, lunch and dinner; and The Beach Club where guests can enjoy alfresco dining by the sea. Savour a host of cocktails and snacks at The Lobby Lounge or Beach Bar while enjoying panoramic views of the Andaman Sea. Of course, 24-hour in-room dining is available as well.

The Datai Bay golf course, an 18-hole Championship course, is conveniently located next to the hotel (closed for renovation till mid 2013). The Spa at The Datai can accommodate individuals or couples in each of its four pavilions and offers a host of exotic spa treatments that combine the spirit and traditions of the past with the mysticism of Langkawi’s ancient rainforests. In addition, The Datai features a private beach & water sports pavilion, two swimming pools, a health club, tennis courts, jungle trekking, mountain biking, a library and meeting facilities.

With its tropical rainforest setting and secluded white sandy beach on the Andaman Sea, The Datai Langkawi provides the ultimate escape.
