The Datai Langkawi: Celebrating 30 Years

The Datai Langkawi is a five-star luxury resort located in the heart of Malaysia’s ancient rainforest. The hotel overlooks the picturesque golden sands of Datai Bay, named by National Geographic as one of the top ten beaches in the world. It was originally designed by architect Kerry Hill, who had the vision to create a hotel in symphony with nature. The hotel was lovingly renovated in 2018 by architect Didier Lefort, who was part of the original design team. The following year, the hotel founded The Datai Pledge, a sustainability and conservation trust that supports Langkawi’s unique fauna, flora and communities – the on-site Nature Centre and Upcycle Lab encourage guests to participate in local conservation efforts. Today, the hotel has 121 rooms, suites and villas, all with views of the lush tropical rainforest, and some with the breathtaking vista of the azure Andaman Sea. The open-air spa is a sensory experience, and incorporates potent local plants and techniques in its ‘Ramuan’-based treatments, derived from practices and knowledge passed down over centuries by local shamans. The Datai Langkawi is widely celebrated for its culinary offering, and its cuisine is second-to-none, with world-class chefs such as Michel and Sebastien Bras, and Nils Henkel visiting as part of its Chef Series.

Malaysia Airlines represents the rich heritage of Malaysia, sharing the incredible diversity, its rich traditions, cultures, cuisines and warm hospitality with the world, welcoming passengers as they would guests in their own home.
