You don’t have to look beyond Malaysia for a beach resort getaway, because we have plenty. I had the chance to visit The Datai Langkawi recently, and boy, did I fall in love with this resort.
This is not your ordinary beach resort. The Datai Langkawi is a place surrounded by lush rainforest and blue waters, both rich with flora and fauna.
Turning 24 this year, The Datai Langkawi looks anything but its age. I find out that it’s thanks to the usage of natural, unpainted wood to build the resort.
Here’s a little trivia for you: the rainforest trees that were felled while building the resort was used to construct the resort.
Also, The Datai Langkawi used elephant-felled trees to minimise the use of heavy machinery. For every tree felled while building the resort, another is planted elsewhere on the island of Langkawi.
So, read on to discover the wonders of this luxe resort!
It wasn’t always bright and sunny during my stay. But when it rained, I made up for it by reading on the balcony, enjoying the sounds of the rain falling on leaves.
