Luxury Holidays At The Datai Langkawi

Not many hotels can boast a ten-million-year-old rainforest on their doorstep, a totally unique setting that The Datai - an idyllic natural retreat on the northwest tip of Langkawi - makes the most of. Blending seamlessly into the surroundings, its freestanding, Malay-style villas - many featuring an elevated veranda and a private pool - are scattered throughout the forest for total privacy. Pool Suites are located in the rainforest too, near to the beach, with two guest suites sharing a living and dining area, linked by a covered walkway and having access to a private swimming pool. There's a lovely spa, whose four suites are located deep in the rainforest canopy, and around the peaceful main swimming pool, only the buzz of the jungle's indigenous animals breaks the silence. In addition, there are a number of activities to enjoy, including guided rainforest walks, mountain-biking and cookery courses and, for those who enjoy playing golf, The Els Club Teluk Datai is a splendid course designed by four-times major winner, Ernie Els.

*Please note that the resort has been closed for an extensive renovation since 4th September 2017 and is due to re-open in late 2018.

In keeping with the setting, bunkers are replaced by patches of tropical vegetation and streams, whilst holes are named after native flora and fauna, and include Dusky Leaf and Hornbill. In this ancient jungle retreat, you can expect the comforts of an international-class golf club - including state-of-the-art buggies fitted with GPS, a Clubhouse with modern locker rooms, a pro shop, refreshments facilities, and opportunities to take professional golf lessons. The course, located a mere five-minute drive from the hotel, has been honoured to receive 'The World's Best New Golf Course' award at the 2014 World Golf Awards.


Tranquil, beautiful and secluded, The Datai provides a perfect backdrop to romance. Check-in to the paradise of a Rainforest Pool Villa and enjoy complete intimacy, alongside enchanting views, with your own private plunge pool and sunken Jacuzzi. Cycle together through the mesmerising virgin rainforest, before indulging in the Romance Ritual or Love Bath at the luxurious spa. For the ultimate romantic experience, The Datai offers private candlelit dinners on the beach, Champagne breakfasts overlooking the waves or decadent four-course lobster dishes beneath the stars. Accompanied only by your dedicated waiter for the evening, complete intimacy is guaranteed.

The Beach

With its azure-blue waters, unblemished white sand and breathtaking sunsets, The Datai is a true tropical paradise, featured in National Geographic's 'Top Ten Beaches in the World'. After a relaxing morning soaking up the glorious sunshine alongside the soothing sound of the breaking waves, head to The Beach Club to enjoy a delicious wood-fired pizza for lunch, admiring the breathtaking views towards the Andaman Sea. For thrill-seeking sea adventurers, the Beach Activities Centre offers complimentary snorkelling gear, windsurfs, sea kayaks and sail boats, allowing you to make the most of the crystalline water and striking scenery.

Spa & Wellness

The Datai Spa features individual spa pavilions nestled in the jungle, beside a stream. Open on three sides and sheltered by the forest canopy, each pavilion affords privacy and peace in which to enjoy therapies. The host of exotic spa treatments combines the spirit and traditions of Bali with the mysticism of Langkawi's ancient rainforests and includes the signature Spa Massage, which is an extraordinary fusion of Shiatsu, Swedish, Thai, Balinese and Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi techniques, applied by two Therapists working in perfect harmony.


The Datai boasts a gorgeous location in which to enjoy a romantic wedding for you and your guests. Choose from a divine beach setting, with the emerald-green sea and far-distant islands as your backdrop, or venture into the heart of the ancient rainforest to enjoy a traditional Malay (Bersanding) ceremony at The Gulai House, a traditional Kampung dwelling.

The hotel would be happy to tailor your wedding to your requirements and the dedicated Wedding Specialist will ensure that your wishes come true, whether you dream of a traditional Malay ceremony or a more modern version - traditional music, fireworks, delicious cuisine and flower arrangements are just some of the details that can be organised, just for you.

Wildlife Encounters

Due to its unique position, built into surrounding ancient rainforest, The Datai is home to a wealth of wild animals and intriguing creatures. It's not unusual to find a wild pig sauntering past your door or the odd monkey tapping at the window. The Datai seamlessly blends into the natural environment, so the frogs and the lizards do as they wish, the monkeys make humorous fools of themselves and the insects carry on regardless. Expect to hear bird calls and monkey chatter throughout your stay, because this is a truly wild experience.

Hotel Experiences

The hotel's traditional Malaysian junk schooner, Naga Pelangi, and its crew, are available for a variety of sailing excursions. The 'Discovery Tour' sails to Teluk Dalo Dang and offers the opportunity to enjoy a swim in the sea before cruising the Selat Chinchin, the channel between Langkawi and Koh Tarutao. Or, take the 'Day Cruise' to the pretty island of Tarutao, a National Marine Park of Thailand where you will have the opportunity to go sea kayaking or swimming. On the return to Datai Bay you will also have the chance to learn how to handle the Chinese sail of the schooner and even try your hand at working the ropes and lines yourself. If you prefer, enjoy a leisurely evening, nibbling on canapés and sipping Champagne on the 'Sunset Cocktail Cruise' as you sail around Datai Bay and enjoy watching the sun set over Teluk Datai. Naga Pelangi is also available for private charter and an itinerary can be tailor-made to suit your interests.
