Goodbye For Now, Datai

Langkawi’s legendary rainforest and beach resort closes for 10-month restoration.

The Datai Langkawi officially closed its door momentarily on 4th September for an extensive 10-month restoration project led by the renowned interior designer Didier Lefort of French design house DL2A. Nestled in the heart of an ancient rainforest, the legendary luxury resort will begin its new chapter in July next year.

The redesign will include renovations to the resort’s guestrooms, suites, and villas; the construction of a Nature Centre – underlining the resort’s increased focus on sustainability; additional spa pavilions; a refreshed retail space; and a fitness centre by the beach as well as an overall enhancement of the landscaping.

Furthermore, in line with the launch of Datai Invest in People, The Datai Langkawi will be the first hotel in Malaysia to offer its employees advance tailor-made education programmes in collaboration with leading hospitality universities to ensure natural progression for the resort as it continues to grow and strengthen its most valued assets, beginning from its workforce.

Since its inception, the resort has been lauded for its secluded location and the symbiotic relationship it fosters with the surrounding nature. Here are some photos of the resort before the current ongoing renovation:
