A Legend is Reborn – The Reopening of The Datai Langkawi

The Datai Langkawi unveils its new look. One of the world’s most stunning resorts, The Datai Langkawi is situated on the northwest tip of the island Langkawi in Malaysia. Following a 10 month, multi-million-dollar renovation project, this iconic hotel is set to reopen its doors in September 2018 and we can’t wait to see how it looks.

Datai Langkawi general manager Arnaud Girodon said, “We are confident the new incarnation of The Datai Langkawi will broaden its appeal across continents and generations whilst delighting our loyal repeat guests, many of whom see this as a second home."

The works include a remodelling of the interiors of the guestrooms, suites, villas and public areas. Three of the much-loved Rainforest Pool Villas have been added to the existing five, all located along the Datai River which runs through the 750-hectare rainforest, featuring a deck and pool overlooking the crystal-clear water.

Accommodation is refreshed with lighting enhancements and a warm, sophisticated colour palette; the addition of the latest technology ensures the ultimate in contemporary comfort, with the signature 'Datai DNA' still evident throughout. The new five-bedroom The Datai Estate is one of the largest villas of its kind in Asia — comprising spacious living rooms, games rooms, 24-hour butler service and a private chef — and spans over 3,500 square metres.

Further additions to the resort’s footprint include the expansion of The Datai Spa with a new air-conditioned treatment room supplementing the existing four open-air spa villas, and a dedicated Bastien Gonzalez manicure and pedicure studio.
