Spent three nights at The Datai - our first stay in Malaysia. One cannot wish for a more idyllic and charming, "is-this-for-real" and romantic resort. Understated, tasteful, raw luxury. Staff smiling and dedicated, great restaurants, lovely bay and pools - and everywhere a symphony of rainforest sounds. The setting is spectacular, really spectacular. The nearby golf course, The Els Club,...

This is a beautiful resort. The staff are its biggest asset, followed by the magnificent location. The food is really lovely and the rooms really comfortable. The rainforest is all around and the wildlife and birds can been seen on nature walks. The Datai bay is beautiful and the sea is tepid.

The Datai is an outstanding resort. It is in a beautiful location. The service is second to none. If you want to go somewhere to completely relax, with perhaps just a bit of wildlife spotting, then this is the place for you. It's not cheap, but it's worth every penny.
