We spent 6 nights in a beach villa. Our experience was one of the best in all our years of roaming the world. The resort is private and the service is impeccable. The dining options are varied enough to satisfy everyone. Well done Datai team.

Spent 4 nights with the family at this resort and the experience was everything that was said in the website. A calm and serene setting in the middle of a primary rainforest. Caught sight of the rich flora and fauna, from Dusky leaf monkeys to wild boars and box fishes in the lagoon. A good escape for city dwellers.

We popped in to the Datai for lunch. Parked our hire car and walked in. They took us by buggy to the beach club and sat overlooking the sea. Lunch was lovely. Even if you aren't a resident they are very welcoming. Try it.

A wonderful, relaxing holiday in a unique setting, where there is 5 star luxury from the moment that you arrive, with watersports on the beach, wildlife walks around the grounds, and marked trails for the more adventurous.

The Data is Langkawi's premiere resort set on the North East coast in its own wonderful sandy beach. The hotel is reached in 45 minutes from the airport along a tree-lined winding road, which sets the mood for the hotel's prime position in the rainforest (whilst we were there, there was little rain and when it did rain it was...

We stayed at one of the beach villas and they were excellent. First class in all respects. Highly recommend. The only negative comments i can make are about the beach and the gym. Although the beach and the views are beautiful it is disappointing to see the remains of pollution on the beach. There are small specks of plastic waste... More
