The Datai Hotel, Langkawi Island

On Langkawi Island you could venture into the 750 hectare rainforest on the lookout for flying squirrels and leaf monkeys.

Or you could gain a different perspective on the jungle and walk with a local medicine man who will show you the vast array of medicinal plants and explain their various uses. But you could simply relax; the rainforest surrounding Datai Langkawi has a hidden spa with four open air villas where you could take a hibiscus bath whilst listening to jungle birdsong.

And Langkawi Island has other ways of relaxing you. The beach, for example, is as fine as powder and the Andaman Sea is warm and welcoming. And the Datai Langkawi itself is ultimately luxurious – making it the perfect choice for your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Malaysia.
