The Datai Langkawi is an iconic resort with an international following
and one of the world's most stunning hideaways. Situated in the
northwest tip of Langkawi Island in
Malaysia, surrounded by an ancient tropical rainforest, a white sand
beach and overlooking the azure waters of the Andaman Sea, The Datai has
put Langkawi on the map for discerning travellers. The Datai Langkawi's
66 well-appointed canopy collection's room, 41 rainforest collection's
villas and 14 beach collection's villas, all offer scenic views of
nature and jungle, and a range of dining options for indoor or alfresco
meals. Two swimming pools and award-winning spa nestled under the
rainforest canopy, and the nearby 18-hole championship Datai Bay Golf
Course provide for leisure pursuits.
Datai's newest addition,
14 Beach Villas on Datai Bay Beach is surrounded by tropical rainforest
with every view defining a picturesque experience and the soothing sound
of the ocean waves.
Since then the iconic property has
featured in myriad lifestyle publications and coffee-table books. It
received the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 2001, inspiring the work
of fellow architects worldwide.
Today The Datai Langkawi has embarked
on an extensive renovation, the most substantial enhancement project
since its opening in 1993. To ensure the resort retains its much-loved
‘Datai DNA’, the management has again appointed Lefort of DL2A, the
renowned architect and interior designer (who supported Kerry Hill on
the original scheme) who is leading this substantial project.
