The Datai

Langkawi | Super Deluxe

Nestling within an idyllic bay on Langkawi’s isolated west coast, surrounded by immaculate beaches and unspoilt rainforest, the iconic Datai Langkawi is often voted among the best resorts in the world. Following its recent restyle and reopening, the Datai is even more deserving of effusive praise, having modernised and honed its distinctive brand of eco luxury.

Each beach villa, treetop chalet and suite combines understated, contemporary style with elements of refined Malay design. Clean lines are picked out in cool, neutral tones, complemented by warm wooden features. Striking, geometric shapes in the furniture and lighting pick up on the current trend for a touch of 1960s nostalgia, brought up to date with cutting edge colours and materials. Private pools and spacious living areas provide flexibility and room to relax, and the Rainforest villas, on stilts among the trees, are perfect honeymoon hideaways. Generously sized bathrooms, with freestanding tubs, and secluded verandahs offer extra spaces in which to unwind.

As Datai Bay is listed as one of the world’s top ten beaches by National Geographic, you’d be forgiven for doing nothing more taxing than finding a secluded spot and basking in its blissful calm. In more active moments, explore the resort’s newly added nature centre, dedicated to Langkawi’s precious ecosystems and conservation; snorkel in the shallows or kayak out into the bay; or simply practise a little wellness with a balancing Ramuan-based treatment at the spa. Enjoy a variety of dining options, from award-winning Malaysian cuisine to light beachside snacks, and finish the day with a cocktail by the pool.
