Refuge of the Famous
The Datai invites us to enjoy a perfect, natural, isolated spot in the tropical jungle that covers the hills of Langkawi island. The hotel lies hidden amidst huge trees on a mount with a superb view of the sea and the Tarutao islands, which appear like a silhouette against the horizon. The lobby, which has an Asian ambiance, is a window that opens onto a large pond filled with water lilies and, below, in the middle of the exuberant vegetation, is a swimming pool which reflects the sky.
The luxurious cabins, where guests can enjoy total privacy in the middle of so much beauty, lie concealed within the jungle. Amidst the murmur of the waterfalls and the noises of the monkeys you will find the elegant Mandara Spa, which invites you to experience exotic treatments that combine Balinese traditions with the sweetness of Malaysia. Further ahead, passing a brook, you will encounter another swimming pool located in the jungle and at the edge of a white sand beach that frames a jade-colored sea. It is, surely, a paradise for body and soul.
Not too far away, the Datai Golf Course beckons. Enjoy its 18 holes amidst extraordinary views, taking pleasure in the sight of the Gunung Machincang mountain, the humid jungle and stunning Andaman sea. You can also play in two other golf courses: Gunung Raya Golf Club and Langkawi Island Golf Club, each with 18 holes and marvelous settings.
The Datai has four restaurants: The Pavilion (offering the finest Thai cuisine), The Beach Club (delicious buffet featuring seafood and Oriental dishes), The Dining Room (international cuisine) and the Lobby Lounge. The Datai is the ideal place to set out to explore the island, its villages, marvelous natural beauties, beaches, set sail from nearby Telaga Harbor or the Langkawi Yacht Club, dive, fish, play tennis and shop. The Datai is one of Asia’s most exclusive hotels.
