The Datai, Langkawi, Malaysia

The Datai Langkawi is a luxurious destination resort nestling in the heart of a 10-million-year-old rainforest, set against a backdrop of primordial mountains. Overlooking the Andaman Sea and the white-sand beach of Datai Bay it is home to a wealth of wildlife, offering a magical escape and a connection with nature.

The Resort’s 121 rooms, suites and villas, most with their own private verandas, afford stunning views of the lush rainforest and the Andaman Sea, with Tarutao Island on the horizon.

The Datai’s modern hotel facilities, luxurious spa and 18-hole championship golf course, discerningly complement the resort’s serene forested surroundings.
