The Datai Langkawi is a luxurious beach resort that is nestled in the heart of an ancient rainforest. A romantic, tranquil hideaway, it offers the perfect magical escape and allows guests to reconnect with nature in a serene natural haven in Malaysia.
The Datai Langkawi was designed by the visionary architect Kerry Hill with architect and interior designer Didier Lefort. It opened in 1993, and 25 years later, Didier Lefort led the refurbishment of the 5-star resort, designing all the rooms, suites and villas to make the most of the striking natural surroundings.
Situated on the peaceful north-western tip of the island of Langkawi, off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, The Datai Langkawi resort is where you can nurture your well-being to the full amidst the island’s vibrant blend of local cultures, mesmerising waterfalls, idyllic paddy fields, mangroves and a labyrinth of secret waterways.
Intricately curated and imagined, this interactive gallery has been established to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of The Datai Langkawi. The gallery showcases a selection of stunning black and white photos by award-winning photographer SC Shekar, displayed along the corridors of the luxury resort.
We are delighted to introduce the 'Galeri Khazanah', a virtual art gallery by Khazanah Nasional, the sovereign wealth fund of Malaysia. The gallery aims to offer local and global audiences a glimpse of Malaysian cultural heritage through the perspective of talented Malaysian artists.
Malaysian fashion designer Alia Bastamam launched her Resort 2023 collection, aptly titled ‘Oasis’, at The Datai Langkawi in October 2022. The line includes a capsule collection that was inspired by The Datai Langkawi resort, with six elegant looks showcasing soft-flowing drapes and the designer's signature pleats.
