The Datai, Langkawi, Malaysia

Situated on top of the north-western tip of the luxuriant Langkawi Island, this resort cosies up to an infinite stretch of snow-white sandy beach with the calm Andaman Sea seemingly close enough to touch.

​The Datai prides itself on its time-honoured approach to luxury and good old-fashioned pampering, while for those wanting something a little more energetic, the tennis courts and health club provide a welcome work-out; while The Els Club Telek Datai has established itself as a new icon on the golf scene.

Villas and suites are cosy and comfortable, with traditional Eastern décor, dripping in lavish fabrics and extravagance; dotted throughout the rainforest, all featuring elevated verandas and some with private pools.

​The Pavilion offers alfresco Thai dining under the canopy of the rainforest for a truly exceptional eating experience, while additional restaurants The Beach Club and The Gulai House serve a range of food from Western specialties to local Malaysian delights.

Here, snorkelling and sailing await along with boats for island-hopping, or head out to savour the sights and sounds of a rainforest that’s still home to flying lemurs and squirrels.
