WHY WE LIKE THIS HOTEL
Featuring a selection deluxe rooms, villas and suites nestled amidst lush rainforests and a private stretch of sandy shore facing the breathtaking Andaman Sea, The Datai is an idyllic natural retreat. Each of well-appointed rooms, villas and suites has a sizeable bedroom, living area, private verandas and an amazing view of the natural landscape. Each of the rooms features a combined bedroom and living area with balcony. Additional facilities include two comfortable day beds, a private bar, and a spacious bathroom with dressing area, twin vanities, a bathtub and shower.
There are two wonderful restaurants in the main resort area serving Thai, Malay and western food, an adult only Lobby lounge serving cocktails and snacks and, Whilst the resort is very family friendly they do insist that children under 12 use a dedicated swimming pool leaving the main pool free for adults to relax by. The spa is beautifully integrated into the lush surroundings of the tropical rainforest. There is an exclusive 18-hole championship golf course very close to the resort.
The Datai is simply put – superb! The service is as good as you will find anywhere and the overall quality – from the rooms to the food is excellent. The only minor draw backs are that some of the rooms are set deep in the jungle making them a little dark, but after all why would you be spending the day in your room anyway and the monkeys can be a little “cheeky”, so keep your windows and doors closed. The resort has a strong contingent of repeat guests, so make sure you book early. The Datai is not cheap, but is it good value? – it most certainly is!
