The Datai Langkawi to Embark on Extensive Renovation Project


The Datai Langkawi has announced plans to undergo a massive renovation in September 2017, marking the luxury resort’s most significant enhancement project since it has established more than two decades ago. To retain its signature DNA, the management has invited the award-winning Didier Lefort of DL2A and Australian architect Kerry Hill to lead the project. Both Lefort and Hill were responsible for the resort’s original concept during their 1993 launch.

“This renovation is a testament to The Datai Langkawi’s commitment to providing unmatched luxury accommodations, the highest level of service, and the modern amenities that appeal to today’s luxury global travelers,” said Arnaud Girodon, General Manager of the resort.

He adds, “Temporarily closing the resort will allow us to complete this refurbishment as quickly as possible and allow our guests to return to our island paradise in mid-2018.”

Indeed, The Datai Langkawi will remain a vision of Kerry Hill’s original concept of having a lavish getaway hidden within a 10-million year old rainforest with the pristine backdrop of Datai Bay. Travelers can expect to still enjoy the handsome juxtaposition between the majesty of nature with the beauty of contemporary amenities.

The resort will close for 10 months and is scheduled to reopen in the following summer of 2018. Aside from refurbishing its guestrooms, suites and villas, a Nature Centre will be also be constructed to offer an additional focus on sustainability. Landscaping will be refreshed with a new vibe, along with additional spa pavilions and a fitness centre by the beach.
