Fourteen New Beach Villas Raise The Luxury Bar
The Datai Langkawi Unveils its New Showstopper
Langkawi Island, 10th December 2012 - Iconic luxury hideaway, The Datai Langkawi will set a new benchmark for accommodation on the Malaysian island of Langkawi with 14 superb new beach villas opening this December 2012.
Directly situated on Datai Beach and softly surrounded by native trees and exotic flowers, the new villas blend seamlessly into the pristine landscape while allowing unprecedented privacy, direct access to the beach and spectacular views of the Andaman Sea.
There are 13 spacious one bedroom villas offering 218 square metres of living space with intimate sea, beach and pool views from most rooms. One two-bedroom villa boasts 475 square metres and is ideal for a family, two couples or a larger group.
Enviable features of all the villas include a large luxurious master bedroom overlooking a private 12 metre pool, a spacious master en suite with double vanities and a choice of indoor or garden shower, a relaxing and softly furnished open plan living/dining area opening to the pool terrace and a private timber poolside sun deck and lounge area that flows to a private grassy lawn leading to the beach.
While the villas provide a resort experience within their own private setting, they are easily accessible to the many offerings at The Datai Langkawi. The Datai boasts two large pools including the main pool and the beach club pool, plus a fabulous spa and numerous dining options.
While the opportunity is there to enjoy bespoke meals prepared by Datai chefs within the privacy of the beach villas, guests have the choice of dining at The Dining Room just off the main lobby, The Pavilion restaurant, The Beach Club restaurant, or ever-popular The Gulai House, just a short stroll from the villas along a romantically lit path through the rainforest.
Alternatively a private dinner in a open-sided marque directly on the beach has always been a popular option for The Datai Langkawi's guests, particularly for romantic occasions.
Likewise spa treatments may be taken at The Datai's award-winning Spa, serenely positioned over naturally running-water in a lush tropical setting, while massages and some beauty treatments may also be enjoyed within the beach villa confines.
With the beach villas' ease of access to arguably Langkawi's most beautiful and pristine beach, the temptation is to simply relax and enjoy this extraordinary and private position, yet with so much on offer within The Datai's lush grounds, the choices are many.
Anthony A. Sebastian, General Manager for The Datai Langkawi commented, "It is with great excitement that we add the 14 new beach villas to the many and varied accommodation offerings available to our guests at The Datai Langkawi. We look forward to continue indulging and exciting our international guests with the unique style of genuine hospitality that the Datai name is synonymous with."
