A stunning and secluded retreat on the Malaysian island of Langkawi. Great for that total escape, the Datai does not come cheap. The hotel is perched on a hill overlooking the Andaman Sea, surrounded by virgin rainforest. Service is top notch, as are the stylish accommodations - a neat mix of colonial and native architecture, with open air pavilions and spa treatment centres that ensures your treatments are watched over by chattering monkeys in the nearby canopy. Stunning sunsets, an icing sugar beach and non-stop room service make this a great retreat.
