Coastal Basecamp

The Datai

Langkawi, Malaysia

Prices From: $375 - $550

The Datai offers an idyllic retreat to nature in the depths of a centuries-old virgin rain forest. The resort comprises a central hotel and free-standing villas in the forest. Open-air covered walkways and meandering paths connect the various areas. Red balau timber, black granite, and white marble are used to a clean-lined eclectic effect resulting in a sleek but non-sterile design. It is a truly sophisticated escape.

Elevated in the rain forest, The Pavilion serves authentic Thai cuisine in an open-air setting. Malaysian and Western fare are presented in The Dining Room. Alfresco dining is served at The Beach Club. Cocktails, snacks and panoramic views of the Andaman Sea can be seen from the Lobby Lounge.

The hotel is happy to arrange romantic dinners on the beach, Thai cooking lessons with expert Thai Chefs and luxury sailing through the islands of Langkawi. The hotel sits amid the spectacular scenery of the 40 million year old Rainforest so nature walks, birdwatching and jungle treks are a must for visitors to this award wining property.

The Datai is nestled in the beauty of an ancient tropical rainforest with a secluded white sand beach facing The Andaman Sea. Adjacent to the resort is an 18-hole championship golf course.-->
