As unspoilt as the ancient rainforest that fringes its shore, Datai Bay’s secluded pocket of paradise in Langkawi has earned it the title of one of National Geographic’s best beaches worldwide.

The white-sand beach curves gently in a protective crescent moon around the bay to create a stretch of sand that is 1.5 kilometres long and 30 metres wide at normal tide.

The warm yet refreshing turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea make for excellent swimming conditions and the opportunity to participate in various water sports, including snorkelling, sea kayaking, windsurfing, catamarans and sailing boats.

And if you want to exercise with a superb view, look no further than our fitness centre, The Health Club, overlooking the beach.

Those who simply want to lie back and drink it all in can recline on a sun lounger at our beach resort and let their feet sink into the warm, soft sand as one of our associates serves a refreshing cocktail. Gaze across the deep blue sea to the nearby forest-covered hills of Pulau Anak Datai and the rural Thai island of Tarutao in the distance. Embrace the sound of calm waves gently lapping the shore and listen to the chattering whispers from the rainforest behind you.

And if you want to know more about the wildlife and vegetation inhabiting the shore, our marine biologists at The Datai Langkawi are there to accompany you on one of our beach walks.

Finally, our white-sand beach is also a venue for your special celebrations in Langkawi, such as weddings, birthdays and private dining.
