The Datai


Based on reviews.

Arguably one of Malaysia's finest resorts, the sophisticated Datai is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Nestled on a slope, surrounded by ancient tropical rainforest and perched above secluded Datai Bay, it is hard to imagine a more idyllic setting. The stunning upper pool boasts hillside views and is reserved for adults only while the pool nearer the beach is perfect for families to splash around in. Restore mind, body and soul at the spa, rest in supreme comfort within elegantly designed rooms or villas scattered throughout the forest, and dine on gourmet food. Environmental initiatives include coral rehabilitation and reforesting the surrounding rainforest.
