An idyllic natural retreat on the northwest tip of Langkawi, The Datai is blessed with an incredibly unique setting in the midst of a ten-million-year-old rainforest. Its freestanding Malay-style villas blend seamlessly into the spectacular surroundings, scattered throughout the forest for intimacy and privacy, and many featuring an elevated veranda and a private pool. Pool suites can be found near the beach, with two guest suites sharing a living and dining area, linked by a covered walkway and having access to a private swimming pool. All accommodation features air-conditioning, a mini-bar, tea and coffee-making facilities, bathrobes and slippers and bathroom amenities, satellite/cable flat-screen television, DVD/CD player, iPod/iPhone docking station, wi-fi access and twice daily maid service.
The Datai offers speciality dining in addition to its main restaurants, offering sumptuous food in impossibly romantic settings to celebrate a extra-special occasion: perhaps a romantic candlelit beach dining for two, champagne breakfasts on the beach, or four-course lobster menus under the stars. However there is plenty of choice also available at the five dining venues from Thai cuisine in a charming al fresco setting under the canopy of the rainforest at the Pavilion, western and Malaysian cuisine at the elegant Dining Room, and international and Mediterranean cuisine at the Beach Club enjoying al fresco beach-side dining to snacks and cocktails at the relaxed Lobby Lounge where you can admire panoramic views of the Andaman Sea, and award-winning Malaysian and Indian gourmet treats at the Gulai House, situated in the heart of the rainforest in an open-air 'Kampung Style' setting.
Sailing excursions are available on the hotel's traditional Malaysian junk schooner, Naga Pelangi, with its crew, sailing on 'Discovery Tours' to Teluk Dalo Dang, and offering the opportunity to enjoy a swim in the sea before cruising the Selat Chinchin, the channel between Langkawi and Koh Tarutao, or embarking on the 'Day Cruise' to the tropical island of Tarutao, a National Marine Park of Thailand offering sea kayaking and swimmig, ad the chance to learn how to handle the Chinese sail of the schooner on your return, or perhaps even trying your hand at working the ropes and lines yourself. Evening 'Sunset Cocktail Cruises' around the Datai Ba make for a romantic evening as you nibble on canapes and sip champagne watching the sun set over Teluk Datai. Alternatively you can hire Naga Pelangi on a private charter and have an itinerary tailor-made to your interests.
The Datai also offers a range of fun activities including mountain-biking and cookery courses, and a superb eighteen-hole, par 72 course at the Els Club Teluk Datai, with golf lessons. Nature lovers will enjoy the guided rainforest walks - although, of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife and intriguing creatures from wild pigs sauntering past your door or a mischievous monkey tapping at your window, and hear bird calls and monkey chatter, reminding you how close to nature you are in this exotic slice of tropical paradise. Treat yourself to the signature Spa Massage - an extraordinary, unique fusion of Shiatsu, Swedish, Thai, Balinese and Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi techniques applied by two Therapists working in perfect harmony - or the range of other spa treatments available at the Datai Spa where individual spa pavilions are nestled in the jungle, beside a tranquil stream.
Whether you wish to get married at a divine beach setting, enjoying a perfect backdrop of emerald-green seas and dreamy islands, or deep in the heart of an ancient rainforest with a traditional Malay (Bersanding) ceremony at the Gulai House, a traditional Kampung wedding, the Datai is an incomparably romantic wedding venue, and the dedicated Wedding specialist will ensure your wishes come true - whether you dream of a traditional Malay ceremony or a more modern version complete with traditional music, fireworks, delicious cuisine and beautiful flower arrangements, no detail is too small. With its tranquil ambience and breath-taking natural scenery, this stunning retreat makes for a perfectly romantic honeymoon.
