The Datai Langkawi, set in an ancient rainforest overlooking the Andaman Sea, melds the castaway fantasy with luxury living. The 2,350-square-metre beach villas provide the ultimate in peace and privacy, with their own pools, sundecks, and butler. Nature provides the soundtrack at the Datai Spa, where gifted hands dispense fragrant ministrations in forest pavilions. Meanwhile, The Beach Club beckons with an array of activities, and just minutes away is the Els Club Teluk Datai, an 18-hole par-72 masterpiece. Feeling like company? Summon an electric buggy to whisk you up to cocktails in the Lobby Lounge, then cross the pool terrace for a Thai feast at The Pavilion or another of the five gourmet venues.
