The Datai cascades across 46 acres of virgin rainforest and the dazzling white sands fringing the Andaman Sea. The hotel, designed in a minimalist style, complements its spectacular surroundings. Nature sightings are frequent as you wander through the resort; you may come across hornbills, giant squirrels and dusky langurs. Head to the Nature Centre to listen to talks from the resident naturalist. Spacious rooms and villas are cool and contemporary, adorned with natural woods. Canopy rooms are located in the main buildings, closest to the main pool and restaurant. Some of the stilted Rainforest Villas feature private pools, while the secluded Beach Villas are closest to the sparkling sea and the Datai Bay's beach, which was named one of the world's top 10 beaches by National Geographic.
Lie back and soak up the views or head out for some snorkelling, sailing or kayaking. Golfers will love the incredible location of the 18-hole, par-72 Els Club Teluk Datai golf course, complete with clubhouse and café. Don't miss an opportunity to unwind in the forest spa where healing plants and herbs are used.

WINE AND DINE
The Dining Room is an all-day dining venue, sitting alongside the main pool, serving extensive buffet breakfasts and dishes influenced by local ingredients. The Beach Club and Bar open throughout the day, serving up healthy salads, crispy pizzas and just-caught fish from the grill. In the evening, head up to The Pavilion - which seemingly 'floats' above the jungle canopy - for delicious Thai food. Gulai House is tucked deep in the rainforest and offers authentic Malaysian cuisine including dhal curry and chicken Melaka. Relax in the Lobby Lounge after dinner with a gin and tonic from the extensive gin menu.
