From September 29th until beginning of December, the Datai Langkawi will be on soft opening mode and as such not all facilities will be open.

We wish to assure you that all major construction works have now been completed. At this stage, only minor finishing works are being carried out in segregated areas. The noise level is equivalent to regular maintenance work with no heavy drilling with minimal disturbance to our guests.
