Finding your inner Zen has never been so easy. A mystical island off the coast of West Malaysia awaits your arrival, engulfing you in tranquility. The enchanted island of Langkawi offers jungle-covered mountains, lakes, caves and waterfalls, all ready to be explored while staying at the island retreat, The Datai.
With a private pathway leading to white sandy beaches, a spa and a golf course, it is easy to see why The Datai seems too good to be true upon arrival. With 54 villas, 16 suites and 54 rooms, all with a private veranda and set in the lush rainforest, The Datai offers a trip you will certainly remember forever—even if you’re convinced it was all a dream.
Stay fit while on vacation by visiting The Datai’s state of the art health club or enjoy the island in the sun by participating in activities outside.

The Datai also has two lap swimming pools on site, and tennis courts and an 18-hole championship golf course are available five minutes away at Els Club Teluk Datai.
