The Datai Langkawi

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.
