Located right in the lush rainforest with its incredible richness of flora and fauna and offering breathtaking views of the Andaman sea, The Datai is your luxury hotel of choice. Over two decades ago, famed architect Kerry Hill designed and built the Datai to honour nature, preserving the majestic coastline whilst creating a luxurious masterpiece. Now, the Datai Langkawi continues to blend seamlessly into the surrounding ancient rainforest with even more luxurious amenities.
Luxury Holidays to the Datai
Since its recent $60 million renovation, this gorgeous idyll boasts fresh new interiors and exteriors, making your next Langkawi holiday even more luxurious. Throw in the fact that The Datai already established itself as a winner of numerous international awards and constantly tops Malaysia's Top 25 hotel lists for its high quality service and spectacular guest experience, this is a luxurious getaway to remember.
Your leisure time activities at The Datai will be unmatched. Non-motorised water sports, including sailing and boogie boards, are free of charge, as are mountain bikes on which you can discover the secrets of this ancient natural beauty that is the island of Langkawi. A private beach, tennis courts, swimming pools, a new gym located next to the beach and an exclusive 18-hole championship golf course are all waiting for you at The Datai.
The Datai Things To Do
For nature lovers, local naturalist-guided tours around the rainforest are organised, as well as special morning and evening walks. For a more physically challenging experience, choose jungle trekking which can be custom-designed to adjust to your fitness level. Jungle trekking is also available for families with children. In February 2019 The Datai Langkawi completed an exciting refurbishment project. The resort’s iconic Malay ship, the Naga Pelangi, with its swordfish sails, has now returned to Datai Bay and is available for cruise hire and excursions until the end of April. The resort has also officially launched a new cooking school – The Dapur (meaning kitchen in Malay), from permaculture garden cultivation to kitchen skills. Choose Thai, Indian or Malay cooking classes. A supplement applies to the aforementioned cruise and cooking experiences.
