The Datai, Langkawi

Superluxe - £££££


Hidden in the dense green rainforest, it might be hard to spot The Datai in Langkawi​. However, once you find it, you’ll know that the hunt was worth it. Wind your way through the 10-million-year-old greenery spotting dusky langurs, geckos and Sunda colugos as you walk. You’ll find pristine areas of natural beauty, and that’s only the start of what this hotel has to offer.

The Datai has 121 rooms, suites and villas for you to choose from. Those in the Canopy Collection sit high up in the trees, those in the Rainforest Collection are at the heart of the thick green vegetation and, as you might have guessed, those in the Beach Collection sit right on the sandy shoreline.

All the accommodation in this hotel is light, airy and spacious. What more could you want from a rainforest retreat?


Another great thing about this hotel that it has a private footpath that leads to the idyllic Datai Bay Beach. It’s a great place to stretch out and enjoy the sun, the peace and the quiet. Few people come here because it’s difficult to find, so enjoy some time to yourself and take in the incredible views of the ocean.

After a day on the beach, come back and enjoy some food and drink at one of the five restaurants and bars. Grab a snack, a cocktail or even a four-course meal; it’s entirely up to you. Make sure you spend some time in the spa and try some of the holistic activities on offer; yoga is great for helping you unwind!
