The Datai Langkawi can be found on Langkawi’s secluded northeast coast, nestled between pristine sands and a rainforest that date back millions of years. You can explore the natural world any time you fancy – opt for tours if you want to see local hidden gems, or don our walking boots and go for a walk through the trees by yourself. Or stretch out on the sands and take it easy as you look out across to Tarutao Island.
Without the stunning mangroves, rainforest and beach that surround the resort, The Datai Langkawi wouldn’t be such a special place to stay. That’s why ‘The Datai Pledge’ is promoted across the resort, with focus on four elements of sustainability – protecting the future, the wildlife, the fish and the youth of Langkawi for years to come. Through this, The Datai Langkawi rehabilitates coral reefs, protects the ancient forest, and educates local children on how they can keep their home safe from harm. The resort also makes sure that every part of its operation, from cleaning to energy conservation, has minimal impact on Langkawi’s beautiful landscape.
The Datai Langkawi’s exclusive accommodation is spread across three distinct areas. If you prefer to dip in and out of nature, opt for a Canopy Room in the resort’s main complex. Water babies should stay on the sands in a Beach Villa, while adventurous travellers can get closer to the lush tropical surroundings in one of the Rainforest Villas, right in the heart of the trees.
Sit cross-legged on the floor of this traditional Malay Kampung house and sample local dishes and fine wines, as you listen to the sounds of the rainforest.
You’ll feel like you’re floating at this Thai eatery, as you’ll be perched on 30-metre stilts above the forest. You might even catch a glimpse of a Sunda flying lemur as you dine.
You can dine by the side of the resort’s main pool any time. Tuck into a buffet breakfast beneath the fig trees or visit for a romantic candlelit dinner.
Share treats like hand-thrown pizza and seafood platters with your family during a restful beach day. Come evening, you can order cocktails and watch the sun set over the water.
Sip your morning coffee, order light snacks, or unwind with an after-dinner drink at the laidback Lobby Lounge. There’s live jazz music twice a week, too.
Celebrating something special? Sit down to a private dinner on the beach or in the heart of the rainforest, while a personal butler serves you a delicious meal for two.
There are 121 rooms, suites and villas at The Datai Langkawi. If you want to be close to the resort’s amenities, choose a Canopy Room in the main building. Prefer to be at one with nature? Opt for a Rainforest villa, which sit on stilts in the ancient forest. Or, if you’d like to be just footsteps from the sea, treat yourself to a secluded base on Datai Beach’s sands.
