The Datai

Situated by one of Langkawi's most picturesque beaches, amongst rainforest that tumbles to the sea, the Datai epitomises understated elegance and luxury.

The Datai is renowned for its attentive but unobtrusive service, for its stylish rooms and villas but above all for its superb setting, which makes the Datai one of Asia's premier resorts.

The Datai's setting amongst the rainforest is quite unique and the Datai kindly provides all guests with a little guide to the local wildlife that may be encountered in and around the resort.

The friendly service, the sounds of the rainforest and some exquisite meals are the things guests treasure the most at the Datai.

What's so Special?

Datai Spa treatments in the rainforest spa, to the sound of a trickling stream and the background “music” of the jungle are really special.

The Datai is a wonderful design, just as if it had been carved out of the jungle.

Bear in mind

The setting of the Datai amongst the rainforest is not for everyone (monkeys are a common sight and it can get dark under the canopy of trees), but the atmosphere is quite unique.

The Datai's re-opening at the end of 2018 marked an 18-month long extensive renovation program.

The Canopy Collection

Resembling a majestic fortress semi-consumed by jungle, the main building in the Datai is constructed from black shale rocks.

Rooms here consist of Suites with balconies that offer views over the rainforest canopy all the way to the emerald green Andaman Sea.

With the treetops at eye-level, it’s a delight to spend an afternoon on your balcony watching Oriental pied hornbills, White-bellied sea eagles, Greater racket-tailed drongos and other unique canopy-dwelling species.

Staying in the main building at the Datai offers convenient access to the Lobby Lounge, business center, boutique, Dining Room, the main swimming pool and the gym.

Canopy Deluxe Rooms

Each of the 44 Deluxe Rooms is divided into two areas of 62 sq. m.

The combined bedroom and living room contains a king-size bed, private bar, a writing desk, a day bed and a balcony with panoramic views.

The spacious bathroom and dressing room features twin vanities, shower, toilet, bathtub and luggage space.

Canopy Premium Rooms

Similar to the Canopy Deluxe Rooms, each of the 10 Premium Rooms are 62.5 square metres in size and offer delightful views of the rainforest, swimming pool, or the Andaman Sea.

The Premium Rooms are popular for those wanting to engage with nature from their own balcony, be it the cute and playful Dusky Leaf monkey, the squirrels and colourful frogs.

Examine the flora, fauna or the sea with binoculars!

End and Corner Suites

Each of the 9 End Suites boasts an airy balcony, spacious bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a separate living and dining area with an oversized daybed that can be utilized as a bed when traveling with a child.

The two Corner Suites are similar to the End Suites. Although slightly smaller, they boast an angled balcony with a 180 degree view

The Dining Room

The Pavilion

The Pavilion serves authentic Thai cuisine in a charming alfresco setting, in the canopy of the rainforest. Open for dinner, the Pavilion is a really romantic location, with dining to the background of the sound of the rainforest.

The Beach Club

With unobstructed views of the ocean, The Beach Club provides a dream setting for dining by the sea.

Romantic Dinner on the Beach

Jasmine can pre-book a romantic dinner on the beach for you – a special treat or a birthday surprise.

Swimming Pools

There are two swimming pools at the Datai. The one by the beach is the smaller one and is quieter.

Spa at the Datai

An enchanting rainforest sanctuary, The Datai Spa with four open-air villas set along a winding stream is designed to let you feel the spirit of the surrounding nature.

The calming sound of a purling creek blends with the love song of a cicada and the joyful chirping of birds, the air is infused with an earthy jungle aroma, and while enjoying a hibiscus bath, you may spot a monitor lizard or a playful family of Dusky Leaf Monkeys peeking from a nearby bush.

Inspired by the ancient healing and beauty tradition of Ramuan, the Spa menu features indigenous Malay rituals that harness the power of rare medicinal jungle plants and follow secret recipes used for thousands of years by local shamans.

Nature Excursions

Set in a pristine rainforest, believed to be at least 10-million years old, The Datai Langkawi is blessed with an abundance of plant-life and wildlife.

The lush foliage around the resort is home to some of the most fascinating animals including the great hornbill, the dusky leaf monkey, the rare colugo (flying lemur of South East Asia), macaques, lizards, geckos and more.

Join a complimentary morning and evening nature walk, guided by world-renowned resident naturalist, Irshad Mobarak.

A passionate guide and conservation custodian, Irshad will open your eyes to Langkawi’s natural wonders.

Golf at the Datai

Bestowed the title the ‘World’s Best New Golf Course’ at the inaugural World Golf Awards held in November 2014 in Portugal, our award-winning 18 hole par 72 Championship Golf Course provides a grand game experience in one of the world’s most spectacular settings!

Designed by the golf legend Ernie Els as a tribute to the surrounding nature, the 47 hectare course is nestled in a 10 million years old rainforest with a magnificent backdrop of Matchinchang, a primordial mountain range with marbled peaks proudly reaching towards the sky.

Stretching all the way to the coast, the course enchants with a mesmerizing view of the emerald green Andaman Sea.

To honor the natural surroundings, the typical bunkers have been substituted by natural ‘hazards’ in form of tropical vegetation and streams, and inspired by the wildlife you are likely to spot during your game, the holes carry names such as Dusky Leaf, Hornbill or Macaque Manor.

State-of-the-art club facilities, buggies equipped with GPS units, professional golf lessons provided by the Troon Golf instructors and bag tags personalized with engraved names avouch a truly sophisticated game experience.
