Great stay at The Datai”
We had a great 4 night, 5 day stay at The Datai. This hotel is a bit more pricey than some of the other hotels at Cenang Beach, and the food is definitely overpriced, but the wonderful service and attentiveness of the staff, the lovely surroundings and the beautiful beach make up for that for sure. Although The Datai isn't specifically child-friendly, I do appreciate the concept of having child-free zones. The kids pool is not exactly baby/toddler friendly, but is still a nice space to swim and play. It would be great if in the future they could add in some sort of kids' club. The hotel is far away (at least 30 minutes drive to any other restaurant) from the local activity and any other eateries, which on the one hand is a good thing, as it adds to the quiet, tranquil ambience, but can also be a bad thing as you are forced to frequent the restaurants at the hotel, which can be pricey. We did thoroughly enjoy the excellent food at The Gulai House, though, so not too many complaints on that front! The beach is beautiful and quiet, as it's a quiet beach and it's quite calm, so ideal for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, body boarding. Even our 4 year old had a go at the body boarding! All in all, an excellent stay and we would definitely consider returning after the renovations are completed next year.

Best resort with the best service in Langkawi! ”
The resort is very well maintained, truly lovely & comfortable. Excellent service from every staff from all corners of the resort, I can't find any fault with them! Facilities are so complete yet able to exude the traditional charm and ambience. Food is great! Breakfast buffet is well served with healthy and high quality food spread. The jam & pineapple compote are home made and delicious. There is extra menu of breakfast options that included lobster omelette, banana pancake, egg benedict etc that can be ordered without extra costs. The service here is truly personal and special compliment to staff Shaiful for his excellent work. One must try their famous Gulai House for their authentic, and delicious Malay and Indian cuisines. The service, ambience & fresh seafood here is worth the experience. The spa experience is also worth trying, my therapist Normah was good & attentive. Buggy service is prompt. Overall stay is truly enjoyable! Only set back is the distance from Kuah.

Perfect Combination of Stunning Natural Environment and Great Service”
I stayed 3 nights at the Datai and had the most relaxing holidays ever. The private beach and rain forests are stunning with birds and monkeys to be seen up close. The design and architecture are natural and blended well with the local environment. The staff were all kind and friendly and cared for small details like providing glasses of water and fruit to guests regularly. The highlights of my stay were Morning and Evening Walks and an informal lecture about the Langkawi natural environment in a small hut by Irshad Mobarak, the seasoned Resident Naturalist. They were inspiring and rekindled the interest to appreciate and learn more about the natural wonders. The hotel management and all the staff should be proud of the very high quality of service they deliver. I hope the Datai continues to give priority to protecting the nearby environment and keeping things simple and natural during their renovation efforts which will keep this hotel a very special place for nature lovers.

Gorgeous secluded location”
One of the most beautiful locations I have ever stayed in. Langkawi as a beach destination is already worth it but the beautiful rainforest surrounding The Datai makes it that much more special. You really are in the middle of a jungle and no matter where you are in the resort, the views are impressive. The food (especially at the Thai) is excellent, the staff is always helpful with any requests. The day before our flight we got back to the room to see our boarding passes already printed and ready to go. Its the little things the Datai does exceptionally well and sets it apart from anywhere else we've stayed in Langkawi.

Fabulous location”
The Datai has a unique location and is truly a five star resort in world class. However the ventilation system failed completely in my room to the extent that I experienced a literal shower during the night due to condensation forming in the ceiling. Apparently a normal problem it seemed. However the rooms will be renovated completely including the ventilation system from September 2017. Apart from that and the fact that it took the staff almost an hour from arrival to getting the luggage to my room, it was all perfect.
