New Look for Grand Dame

 Luxurious island hideaway The Datai Langkawi will embark on an extensive renovation project commencing September and finishing in June 2018. The facelift will be the most substantial beautification project since the resort’s inception over 23 years ago, when it was created by the visionary Australian architect Kerry Hill and renowned interior designer and architect Didier Lefort of DL2A.

The resort, which is backdropped by 10-million-year-old rainforest, has once again teamed up with Lefort to complete the redesign, which include breathing new life into the property’s guestrooms, suites and villas; introduce a Nature Centre, complete with traditional medicine tea bar, managed by resident naturalist Irshad Mobarak; the addition of new spa pavilions; and the construction of a refreshed retail space and a fitness centre by the beach. In addition, the resort’s restaurants will be extended, a clutch of forest-wreathed pool villas will be added, a five-bedroom Datai Estate will be unveiled, and the spa reimagined.


“This is a restoration, not a renovation,” said Datai general manager Arnaud Girodon at ILTM Asia. We wanted to bring more natural experiences to our guests, from the holistic pavilion, to the nature centre, to the canopy walk. This fresh look will re-establish the luxury benchmark for Langkawi.”
