The Perfect Family Vacation
We stayed for a week and time flew by so quickly as we were so impressed and amazed by the service, environment, food and most of all the natural surroundings which were so amazingly blended together with everything The Datai had to offer. The first thing one would notice open arrival to the resort is how clean and well kept the property is and you never really see staff cleaning day in and out. No matter where you are around the resort, there's always someone ready to reach out to you. Ice creams by the pool, water sports, delicious cocktails, sumptuous food are the few things they do so well naturally. When it comes to food, they are second to none. Whether it's Thai at the Pavilion, Grill at Beach Club or a variety of curries and rendang at The Gulai House; you'll have a hard time finding something you don't like. Bfast was something we looked forward to each morning. The best locals offer like Roti Canai and Fried Noodles to Foie Gras on toast to perfectly made French Toast. 7 nights felt like 3. The rooms were always so clean. For a frequent traveller, you can tell the amount of detailing in the little things like your room amenities which are eco friendly, the scent of your bath soap and shampoo to the slippers you were offered which are not the boring white ones you get in all other hotels. How do they keep the place so clean and smelling so good all the time? We are so amazed. On the day we checked out, we already made plans to return at the next holiday. TQ to TDL.

Excellent experience!
Our stay at Datai was amazing overall - service was great from airport pick up all the way to our check out, staff were friendly and helpful. Resort is well maintained and very comfortable. The only thing is the lack of food options esp during lunch, but dinner at both Pavilion and Gulai were both excellent. Also got a bit busy towards the weekend with a lot of kids, which disturbed the overall peaceful ambience - would recommend visiting mid week for best experience.
