Editorial review:

A perfect balance between opulent luxury and untouched nature, this uber chic golf resort is located in a breathtaking island paradise, nestled between the verdant rain forest and a private white-sand cove on the Andaman Sea. Stay in spacious villas on stilts, tended by a multinational staff there to cater to your every whim, feast on the delectable Pan-Asian fare or simply view the simian and other guests from the rain forest.

                      Facilities, staff and proximity to wildlife are outstanding. Restaurants provide excellent cuisine.

                      Beach Club restaurant only offers 'buffet' meal at dinner (i.e not 'a la carte')

                      The secluded location within the rain forest and yet close to a private beach is very appealing.

                      The stale smelling bed linen is not something one would expect in a luxury hotel. The modest quality food is overpriced for Malaysian standards.

                      Pick up at the airport by a uniformed driver, welcoming arrival with fresh fruit cocktail, immediatly felt relaxed; long breakfast times, all very chilled out, sensational rainforest surroundings with organised nature walks. For our weekend it was a fairly adult hotel with few children (none noisey!). Wonderful food options, beautiful beach and beach pool area with impeccable service and everything with warm smiles. We will return!

                      Amazing location, staff and concept. I went there for the second year with my family and we were as happy as the 1st time. Staff in particular are great they treated me and my family very well and accommodated all our requests with a smile, although the hotel is supposed to be an adult hotel, there were many families with children and their presence around the hotel facilities was welcomed, of course the main pool is an exception and usually children like to stay near the beach and swim in the beach pool. The jungle tours were also great please don’t miss Irshad's informative info. Transportation to the villas is 24/7 through open golf cars and smiling drivers. The beach is great, one of the best beaches I have ben to and the service at the beach was also great with great staff who keep the towels ready and serve many kinds of food and drinks. I was worried about the construction noise but I didn’t hear any noise during my 6 nights stay. In summery this hotel is great not because of the location itself but because you feel there is good management behind everything and there is a lot of attention given to the details. I will definitely try to spend another great vacation at the Datai and I sure I will see the same amazing Nature and staff again.

                      This is the type of hotels where you need to think really hard to find an area of improvement. I would maybe think that the houskeeping should close the doors when they clean the rooms in order to avoid mosquitos ! the children menu list can be expanded although the room service accomodated several requests we made out of the menue and the freindly beach staff (Susana, Anderew and Roland ) helped to bring any food I asked for at the beach for my kids.

                      I liked everything it was a nice atmosphere.

                      They didn't clean the beach as often as they should have.
