Why you'll love this resort...

  • Set in pristine 10 million-year old rainforest next to the gorgeous Datai Bay beach.
  • Take a rainforest and beach walk with one of the resident naturalists and marine biologists.
  • Bathe beneath a cascading waterfall in one of the resort’s natural pools.
  • The award-winning Ernie Els 18-hole, par-72 golf course is 5 minutes away.
  • 5 Spa treatment villas are situated along a winding stream, within the secluded rainforest.

Nestled inside an ancient tropical rainforest with a secluded white sandy beach facing the calm Andaman Sea, this is quite possibly the nearest you can get to paradise.

Set in a remote corner of Langkawi, surrounded by lush tropical rainforest and bordered by a pristine crescent bay, The Datai Langkawi is the quintessential hideaway resort.

Welcomed by a lotus flower pond in the open-air reception and bar area, the resort extends through the jungle down to a picture-perfect beach. The accommodation is luxurious and spacious and no matter where you choose to stay you will be greeted with views of Datai Bay. The whole resort has an extremely exotic feel, so don’t be surprised to be greeted by inquisitive monkeys.

Activities are aplenty, and you can choose to relax poolside as the attentive staff fill your glass and offer cooling towels, or kayak out to one of the nearby islands. The resort’s back garden is a 750-hectare rainforest where it is possible to hike to dramatic waterfalls and swim in nearby streams. After returning to the resort, The Datai Spa beckons with its extensive treatment menu and highly qualified staff.

The resort is remote and the dining scene is truly indulgent, so be sure to head into the 10 million-year-old jungle to try the delights of The Gulai House, which serves traditional Malay and Indian dishes in a rustic rainforest setting. You can also discover award-winning Thai cuisine at The Pavilion, which is set on stilts and floats in a canopy of virgin rainforest with views of the Andaman Sea.

When you're not languishing in the aquamarine waters or relaxing on the beach, we recommend a thrilling jungle trek with one of the knowledgeable guides. Golfers will love the 18-hole championship course, and non-golfers will love the award-winning spa just as much. Whatever you do to relax there is a 'must try' waiting to be discovered at this resort, such as bathing beneath a cascading waterfall in one of the seven natural pools.
