Datai Langkawi this week closed its doors to undergo its first extensive renovation since its opening in 1993.
Scheduled for completion in July next year, the 10-month project will include the renovation of rooms, suites and villas; additional spa pavilions; a refreshed retail space; a new beach-side fitness centre; as well as an overall enhancement of the landscaping.

Another highlight is the construction of a Nature Centre, which when open will be overseen by the resort’s resident naturalist Irshad Mobarak.
The luxury resort is expected to retain its “Datai DNA” with the redesign undertaken by Didier Lefort, a member of the team of architects behind the hotel’s original look.
