Following an extensive, 12-month refurbishment, The revamped Datai has certainly realised its ambition to be one of the very finest luxury retreats in Asia.

The Datai Langkawi is one of Malaysia’s most luxurious destination resorts, nestling in the heart of a 10-million-year-old rainforest and set against a backdrop of primordial mountains. Overlooking the Andaman Sea and the white-sand beach of Datai Bay - one of National Geographic’s Top 10 Beaches worldwide - it is home to a wealth of wildlife, offering a magical escape and a connection with nature. The hotel is totally immersed into its surroundings, from its team of resident naturalists and marine biologists to its at-one-with-nature experiences, and spa that only uses indigenous ingredients.

The Datai Langkawi has in 2019 revealed the refreshed collection of 121 Canopy, Rainforest and Beach rooms, suites and villas. All accommodations boast views of the lush tropical rainforest as well as the breath-taking vista of the Andaman Sea with Tarutao Island on the horizon.
The exceptional hotel facilities, a clutch of four superb restaurants and lounge, luxurious spa and 18-hole championship golf course, discerningly complement the resort’s serene forested surroundings.


Immerse into the unspoilt 10-million-year-old rainforest.

The Datai has a veritable feast of the expected facilities such as family and adults-only pools; a well-equipped, beachfront gym; yoga pavilion; bicycle rides; yacht charters; watersports and of course, a fantastic, rustic spa. However, it’s the amenities that capitalise on the surroundings that set this resort apart. A Nature Centre with mini-laboratories allows families to learn about ecology, naturalists lead rainforest treks, permaculture-garden tours provide insights into The Datai’s sincere commitment to sustainability, and resident marine biologists take beach walks on Datai Bay and day and night scuba dives. Boredom simply feels impossible

Nestled between the rainforest and sea, the hotel boasts a par-72 championship golf course at The Els Club Teluk Datai.

The Datai’s restaurants are all in beautiful locations dotted around the resort and serve a delectable range of cuisines. The Gulai House, tucked deep in the rainforest serves Malaysian whilst The Pavilion serves Thai ‘floating’ 30m above the rainforest canopy.
The Beach Club serves sunset cocktail and seafood and for special occasions private candlelit dinners can be arranged on the beach.
