A very relaxig holiday.
Cleaniness, Quiteness and nice beaches
We throughtly enjoy the clean & beautiful beaches. We spend three nites at Datai & each nites we tried different types of restaurant and foods. The environment of restaurants were wonderful and foods were quite good. Without hassle of needs of transportation and shopping, we really have a relaxing and wonderful holiday.

Great for nature lovers
Rain forest, beach, spa
Beautiful setting in the middle of rain forest, lovely views of the mountains, sandy beach, excellent champagne breakfast buffet. This hotel is over 20 years old, needs updating. The location is remote, no shuttle service to any attractions. Better to rent a car at the airport to be able to drive around the island.

Great beach and jungle but average on the rest
Amazing beach , fantastic jungle setting , friendly staff
On the good side , the setting in the jungle is amazing , the beach is gorgeous , staff is friendly and the food in the Malay and the Thai restaurants is excellent. On the down side, rooms are starting to show age ( our first room had water leaks due to A/C system) , and this is as far away from everything as you can get in Langkawi ( which is not great if you are planning to do many tours and excursions)

Worth the extra dollars for special experience
natural environment, privacy, beach
Was expecting some differences to other resorts I have been to and when I arrived, I've discovered more surprises. The resort is bit remote, yet it gives the residence full privacy. Start from the first minute stepped into the resort, I could feel how relaxing my holiday will be. Everything were perfect. friendly staff, very nice room, good restaurant, relaxing spa and clean and private beach with very fine sand. All these make our holiday highly remarkable.

The best hotel I have stayed at in Langkawi
The beach was gorgeous, the beach club was excellent and the spa is a must-try
Loved the Datai - the room was large and comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic. We enjoyed 3 days at the beach club as the beach was the best in Langkawi.

Everything was just perfect
The most amazing hotel experience we have ever had, from the minute you arrive at the hotel you feel welcome and relaxed. The staff are friendly, professional, attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them. The surroundings are beautiful and the wildlife is at your doorstep. you can see Monkeys on the walk down to the beach which was a great surprise. The small things they do make this hotel extra special: ice cream whilst lying by the beach, refreshing towels when it gets too hot and fresh cold water waiting for you when you get out the pool....was just heaven!!! I cant wait to get back there one day!!
