Amazing stay. Perfect to relax with stunning view on the jungle and Andaman see. Great restaurants.

Rainforest, Mangrove & Beach...with expensive food
The hotel and service were excellent. The combination of rainforest, mangrove and beach is truly outstanding. If you don’t get stressed out my paying 72MYR for salad, 175MYR for grilled fish or 205MYR for steak, being in the middle of a rainforest is truly relaxing. The activities like water sports and the guided tours are free and should not be missed. Love how the hotel is so eco friendly, with their own recycling and Prema culture garden. The wildlife is abundant and the hotel encourages an authentic natural environment for them to thrive. There is a sense of balance and Co-habitation which is rare. Would definitely recommend this hotel.....especially if you pack cup noodles 😜

Truly stunning resort
Amazing and exceptional hotel amidst a lush rainforest. Beautiful landscapes surround the entirety of the hotel. The exclusive private beach was a gem, and the nature centre was very novel and well executed. Service top notch. An all round brilliant hotel.

Unique nature & beach experience
At the end of the road in old rain forrest, Datai exceeded all my high expectations. The Nature center is an unique facility and do join the complementary nature & beach walks with the inspiring naturalists. Beautiful beach, resort design and area combined with fresh fish & seafood and a fine wine list create an amazing tropical experience.

Expensive, but Perfect
This is probably the nicest place we have ever stayed. The location is out of a movie. The staff is incredibly friendly and makes an effort to get to know you. The room was amazing and had fresh fruit every day. Every meal was delicious. They are always making sure you have enough water when you are on the beach and I got a free kayak rental. There is a small island nearby that is an easy paddle to get to, where I found a huge (and docile) monitor lizard. Everything was perfect and we had a very relaxing time. The only thing to watch out for are the monkeys. The staff tries to keep them away, but occasionally we'd see one, and they can be aggressive.

Amazing place, hidden gem
Amazing stay. I did not expect it would be this good. The staffs are highly trained and respect the guests whereever you meet them. Luxury room where you dont feel like leaving it, but once outside the room you are lured into the rainforest peacefulness, and further down to the end of staircase and walkway, there it is, the Datai beach, very private and beautiful. Dont worry, there is buggy service too if you have trouble with stairs and long walk. The beach is such a treatment to the eye and mind. The water is clear, the beach sand is white and smooth, we could lay down the chair and stay the whole day and swim once in a while. The staff will walk around the beach and serve cold water to guests without charge. Many water sports activities, like canoe, sailing, snorkeling for free. There is also slot for nature walk around the hotel where you learn about the wild animal there. It is indeed however a very secluded area, far away from tourist place in Langkawi. Hence, do expect that you will have to dine in at the hotel restaurants or in room dining, which are really delicious, but of course pricey. What touch me the most is they prepare the prayer mat for Muslim, and fold it nicely on the couch. Such a great personal gesture and thoughts for the guests. We went on our 1st anniversary, so they even prepare more in the room, with rose petals, chocolate mousse, and fruits. I feel that 2 nights are okay, but if come again, definitely 3 nights or more. To me the price justify.

Quick Getaway
Most enjoyable stay. Beautiful surroundings and very friendly staff. Would like to return again. Only issue was that we were woken up by yelling children and slamming doors every morning - until we moved to a different room. Overall the resort and staff were quite lovely.

Absolutely beautiful; Amazing service
this place is gorgeous, but what surpassed the views and facilities was the service. We have never stayed in a resort with such great service. The staff here seemed to read our minds. Before we ever had to ask for anything, there were 3-4 people offering to assist us or bringing us what it is we were thinking. The mini bar items (cokes, beer, etc) and snacks were complimentary (except for liquor), which is something we have not experienced anywhere else, and every afternoon at the beach they walked around with free ice cream cones. The fitness classes were free, which is also not offered at every 5 star hotel. The yoga venue is awesome, next to the beach but tucked away in the jungle. Our room was gorgeous, clean and filled with high quality and complimentary toiletries and accessories. The food was amazing everywhere we ate, and the buffet breakfast had complimentary mimosas and Bloody Marie’s! BAt first, we looked at the prices and were a bit shocked because they were high compared to typical Malaysian prices, but the food was excellent and each restaurant and the prices were honestly not as high as what we would’ve had to pay in the US for such a nice resort— especially considering the free amenities the hotel offered. Our son loved the free rentals for the SUP, body board and kayak, and my wife loved the gym and the helpful staff who anticipated her towel and water needs and even offered assisted stretching. She did the yoga and the core conditioning class.
