Malaysia is truly a melting pot of cultures, which resonates through its vast culinary offerings. Blending different ingredients and creating bespoke flavours whilst welcoming guests and opening homes is something which is innate to Malaysian culture. Welcome to The Dapur, meaning 'Kitchen' in Malay – The Datai Langkawi’s very own and unique culinary experience. The journey begins with a guided walk through our Permaculture Garden to collect fresh herbs and spices, led by our resident chefs. Don your apron and choose from a variety of traditional Malay, Thai or Indian cuisine and let our experts help you create signature dishes, all of which can be enjoyed with a specially paired glass of wine.
