Fodor's Review

Often praised as the most luxurious stay on Langkawi, the Datai is a mélange of suites and villas crafted from local materials all immersed in a lush rainforest. Rooms are kept tastefully simple with hardwood flooring, calm shades of beige and brown, and comfortable furniture for lounging. Lit at night by glowing torches, the winding paths lead guests throughout the resort, past the four restaurants, two pools, and down to the private beach. Avid golfers can spend the day on the exclusive 18-hole championship course, and adventure-seekers can borrow a mountain bike and explore the coast. Those seeking relaxation should stop by the top-notch spa.
