The island of Langkawi in Malaysia is a highly popular destination for tourists the world over, thanks to its landscapes and its diverse and varied atmospheres. Lovers of the sea will be delighted by the island’s superb beaches and the ideal temperature of the magnificent Andaman Sea. They can also go sailing, kayaking, as well as snorkeling to discover the treasures of the ocean depths.
The famous Telago Tuju Falls, also known as the “Seven Wells” because of the seven natural pools the water encounters as it cascades down to the sea, can be reached after a nice walk and then climbing the hundreds of steps leading to the top. It’s a trek, but the panoramic view is well worth the effort. For an uninterrupted view of Langkawi Island and its surroundings, a cable car ride to the summit of Mount Machincang is ideal. This funicular by the way, holds the record of being the longest in the country. Those who want to discover the virgin and particularly thick rain forest can do so in foot in the company of a guide, or on horseback through the heveas, or rubber trees and the palm trees. The region’s typical rice paddies and numerous fishing villages can also be visited via an organized excursion.
The Datai Langkawi borders both the Andaman Sea and the tropical forest. It’s a colorful hotel and particularly recommended for visitors in search of a peaceful vacation in an idyllic setting, far from the hustle and bustle of the city.
This five-star establishment offers its guests a wide choice of accommodations, thanks to its 110 rooms. The main building has 54 deluxe rooms, perfectly equipped, hospitable, and extremely comfortable, with a double bed, a spacious bathroom and a balcony with a view of the surrounding nature. Forty villas nestled in the heart of the jungle are also available. Equally well decorated as the deluxe rooms, in a modern and elegant style, they are larger and more design oriented. Some even have their own swimming pool.
The 16 suites of the Datai consist of a living room, a dining room and for the most luxurious suites, a fully equipped kitchen, ideal for families or groups of friends.
The hotel’s spa welcomes its guests in four buildings and offers a variety of relaxing treatments with exotic names like the Bali or the India. The Pavilion restaurant serves traditional Thai cuisine, but guests can venture just a few hundred meters through the forest for a meal consisting of Indian and Malaysian dishes at the Maison Gulai, with the choice of eating at a dinner table or, in the local tradition, seated on the ground.
