Nestled in the heart of an ancient rainforest sits The Datai Langkawi, a luxurious destination resort. Situated on the peaceful north-western tip off the island of Langkawi, off the west coast of Peninsula Malaysia, lies a virgin forest, pristine beaches, and a labyrinth of secret waterways. The largest island in the archipelago, Langkawi is famous for both its outstanding natural beauty and unique flora and fauna. Blending seamlessly with the lush landscape, the treetop canopy rooms, tranquil rainforest suites and beachside villas all invite relaxation. Echoing the natural environment in which they sit, every room is elegantly furnished with rich wooden fixtures, crisp white linen and wooden shutters, allowing guests to reconnect with the natural world.


Delight in exquisite cuisine from one of the five restaurants, with each unique dining experience inspired by culinary traditions from around the world. Be sure to visit The Pavilion restaurant: set on stilts, you can watch as colugos (flying lemurs) glide through the canopy as you enjoy one of their fragrant Malay curries. During your stay you will also have a private butler on hand to see to your every need, allowing you to unwind and indulge. Find peace and tranquility as you sit under the dappled shade of lush trees and sip cocktails as the sun slips below the horizon.


The Datai Pledge program encompasses various sustainability and conservation initiatives. Partnering with MareCet, they focus on marine mammal conservation and sustainable fishing. Their "Fish for the Future" project includes creating artificial reefs and coral rehabilitation. Additionally, they're committed to reducing resource use, carbon footprint, and achieving zero waste. These efforts demonstrate a proactive approach to sustainability, setting a positive example for the industry.

Why we love it

As pristine as the rainforest that borders it, Datai Bay is a beautifully golden beach - voted one of National Geographic's Top 10 Beaches in the World. Stretching nearly two kilometres, this crescent moon beach is edged by the Andaman Sea's glittering turquoise waters. Take a refreshing dip surrounded by a plethora of marine life, lie back on the warm sand and relax, or take a stroll along the shoreline with a marine biologist to learn more about the wildlife and vegetation.
