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 Langkawi - 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. The Canopy Collection rooms and suites are located in the main building overlooking the rainforest, while the Beach Villas, all with pools and dedicated butlers, run adjacent to the Datai Bay’s award-winning beach.  Offering the ultimate luxury experience, the unique 5-bedroom Datai Estate Villa -  with two pools, a butler and private chef - is also situated in the rainforest near the beach. Respecting its delicate surroundings, the resort emphasises sustainability and eco-friendly luxury through use of stainless steel drinking flasks, bamboo toiletries and non-plastic straws.
There's a lovely spa, whose treatment villas 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.

The Ernie Els-designed, Els Club Teluk Datai is an award-winning, 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course, enjoying an incredible setting amidst tropical rainforest and stretching to the edge of the Andaman Sea. 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.


Hotel Experiences

Allowing guests to truly embrace the diverse flora and fauna of the ancient rainforest, The Nature Centre is a unique open-air building that has been designed to resemble a tribal bamboo longhouse. Inside, discover a library filled with fascinating books on Langkawi's wildlife, a Tea Corner serving Malay teas with many health benefits, and a lounge in which you can hear the stories of resident naturalist Irshad Mobarak. You can also join Irshad on a nature trail through the treetops, encountering the delicate ecosystems of the Datai's surroundings. For foodie guests, The Datai hosts brilliant cookery classes, during which you will collect your fresh ingredients from the herb gardens, before creating delicious and authentic Malay dishes.  


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.


Romance

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 10-metre pool and private deck next to The Datai creek. 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.


Spa & Wellness

In harmony with the resort’s surroundings, wellbeing at The Datai Langkawi embraces the ever-expanding healing found in the rainforest with its age-old traditions and philosophies of the Malay culture known as Ramuan. The serene Spa is situated along a small winding stream, offering uniquely delivered treatments and a sensory journey of overall well-being through relaxation and rejuvenation. Focusing on aligning wellness with nature, its signature treatments incorporate the healing plants and herbs found in the rainforest. The philosophy of beauty through health is complemented by the international expertise of Bastien Gonzalez and Phyto5. Bastien Gonzalez is renowned for his exceptional virtuosity and approach to hand and foot care, and Phyto5’s innovative skincare delivers the ultimate holistic skincare experience, creating an equilibrium of inner wholeness and external radiance.


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.
