4 Traveloka customers have stayed in this hotel and given reviews:

Perfect! Beyond expectation. Everything was perfect. Their service was top notch. They treat their guest attentively. From the moment u steped out from your car until the moment u bid adieu, the staffs are all so friendly and attentive. I am impressed. I love everything about the Datai, their people, the location, the room, the breakfast. I would love to stay here again next time when they re-open next year. Thank you the Datai! Definitely the best resort / hotel I have ever stayed in.
Me and my spouse love this place very much. It's such an awesome and lovely place.
A beautiful scenery. A pleasant staff
Very nice ambiance hotel. And we love the rain-forest theme concept of the hotel. Staff are very welcoming us upon our arrival. The 2nd welcome drink are impressive. We love everything here and feel like being at home. Datai would be my first choice if I have the chance to revisit Langkawi again.

Paradise in the middle of nature!
I stayed at the Datai Langkawi for a total of two nights. There isn't anything bad about this resort really! It's in the middle of nature, is well spread out, and is a perfect resort if you want to stay in, drink and just chill. The location is right at the end of Langkawi, so if you want to get around to do some sightseeing, highly recommend you hire a car. Driving around Langkawi is easy. Checking in was slow and we were given a double bed room despite having asked for single beds. We checked in post 2 PM and lunch took an hour to serve at the coffee shop. Other than that, nothing to complain about. All standard size rooms are huge, big enough for an extra bed. The beach access is excellent, the beach house is a separate unit with a great pool and access to the Datai bay with stunning views. This is a short buggy ride away from the main hotel. The staff is extremely helpful. The restaurants have a good selection of sea food. Dress code is strict though. Don't go in shorts and swim suits! All non alcoholic drinks in the mini bar are complimentary! They also have a tie up with the Andaman Hotel which is right next door. Please do try the Jala restaurant at the Andaman. This was the best sea food I had in Malaysia. The produce was fresh, the wine list was awesome, and the restaurant is on the beach. Really awesome . Ask them for recommendations on what to eat and you won't be disappointed. If you want to live in extra luxurious space, book a rainforest villa. It comes with its own private pool. You may find that the Datai is a tad bit more expensive than other properties in this area, it is totally worth it though. If you are travelling with an elderly person, getting around this place may be problematic. I loved my stay at the Datai!

Love this place - beach villa room heaven!
Stayed here in September 2017 and it was a very memorable stay in one of the beach villas. We are a family of 4 with two young children and they made the room so we all fitted in nicely without falling over each other as the rooms are large. I like the idea of having a separate lounge area to sit and chat/eat if the children are in bed in the bedroom a few steps away. The room was well appointed, with everything you need. The butler that we had was very friendly, helpful, kind and always only a few minutes away. The hotel facilities are lovely, but we stayed in the last weekend before they closed to refurbish the main hotel and rooms, so cant wait to see them in 2018 when they open again as we will definitely return. The staff are all wonderful, service is something that this hotel really gets right in all aspects! The beach is clean, quiet, great for children to enjoy and the activities are all included so we had a great time with the children trying everything. I loved our stay here and would definitely recommend it to all wanting a to stay in a slice of heaven away from the hustle and bustle or life! Golf cart transport around the resort made it easy for the parts that were a bit further away, but some were close enough to walk if you wish. Loved our stay - thank you we will return!

Villa Beach Room
Stayed in the one bed room beach villa with my husband on last May during weekend. It was a perfect gateaway vacation. Location is easy to reach from Singapore, quick flight. The resort has everything you wish for a luxury experience. We tried the spa, it was one of the best we ever had! Our room was so spacious, facing the ocean. Decent service from the staff. We would love to come back again to Datai Langkawi!

Piece of Heaven!
This hotel is completely out of this world and during my stay it did feel like I was in a different world. It's almost like this hotel made a pact with nature so it blended in without disturbing any life around it. Technically situated in a forest with a mesmerizing beach (Still my favorite beach till this moment). Birds chirping when you wake up and monkeys on the terrace, it was just like a dream. Breakfast was AMAZING, everything was fresh and delicious even the coffee (and I'm a person who needs her caffeine in the morning). Service was marvelous and the staff are so friendly and happy that it made me feel all gooey inside (in a good way). It's kind of secluded so it's not close to any well known streets but that wasn't a problem. Me and my family went there on September of 2016 contrary to the listed date but because this review is belated, I couldn't find the date in the list and I HAD TO WRITE A REVIEW FOR THIS RESORT.

Stayed here in November 2016 and this a lovely resort with magnificent facilities and fantastic beach. Given it is to be refurbished soon, it was a wonder. One of the great resort breakfasts you can have. Service was excellent and certainly worth the price tag.
