Opulent and exceedingly stylish, the Datai rests within an unspoiled splash of thick and verdant rainforest, set back from a private, implausibly white beach on island of Langkawi, a sparkling jewel on Malaysia's beautiful northwest coast.


Whether you choose to stay ensconced in the rainforest, on the beautiful beach or in the main building with its elevated views across Datai Bay, accommodation here offers an abundance of style, sophistication, comfort and character. Rooms have cool wooden floors, comfy day beds and private balconies with jungle or sea views. The outlying villas have marble bathrooms, Oriental furnishings and, in some cases, private pools.


Explore the culinary traditions of Langkawi, Malaysia and beyond at the Datai's four superb restaurants. Set in the heart of the rainforest, the award-winning Gulai House serves an intoxicating blend of authentic Malay and Indian flavours accompanied by an extensive wine list. Alternatively, head to the Pavilion; elevated among the treetops it serves exceptional Thai cuisine, prepared by some of the country's best Thai chefs. At the Beach Club guests can take a less formal approach to dining, sipping on cocktails and tucking in to a delicious international buffet along with wood-fired pizzas, salads and pastas. Finally, the Dining Room serves breakfast each morning, followed by Malaysian and continental cuisine throughout the the day.


The Datai's centrepiece is its swimming pool. Set at the very heart of the resort, it's an idyllic spot to while away the hours, a thought clearly shared by the monkeys and lemurs that occasionally drop in for a visit. Then there's the spa, with its four, open-air villas that set the scene for massages and treatments in a stunning jungle setting. Or, perhaps head to the hotel's own, Ernie Els-designed, 18-hole golf course, voted the 'World's Best New Golf Course' in 2014. Further facilities include floodlit tennis courts and a number of watersports, while guided nature tours and cruises bring guests up close to the region's spectacular nature.
