The Vibe: This July, The Datai Langkawi will emerge from a US$60 million makeover that’s set to elevate the resort in every aspect. Couples will fall for the remodeled interiors, expanded spa (with a Bastien Gonzalez manicure and pedicure), and brand new five-bedroom The Datai Estate Villa – which spans 3,500 square metres and includes 24-hour butler service and a private chef. A romantic beach or pavilion wedding at the Datai comes complete with tailored services, including a traditional Malay blessing, bespoke food packages, local music, and possibly even fireworks – all arranged by an on-site wedding specialist. The ceremony can be held at the grand staircase, in the middle of the rainforest, or at one of the gorgeous indoor restaurants.
Wedding Style: Beachside romance, Fern Gully fever, sea dreams
Best Part: The hotel is hugged by Datai Bay and a 10 million-year-old virgin rainforest – it really doesn’t get more scenic than this.
Psst… Run by a team of marine biologists and naturalists, a new Nature Centre enables guests to learn about medicinal herbs and teas, get hands-on with interactive mini laboratories, and immerse themselves in the ecosystem that makes this destination so spectacular.
Catering: The culinary team at The Datai is among the best in Asia, so you can expect diverse options – from rustic beach barbecues to sit-down dinners in a forest-hugged pavilion.
Capacity: The hotel can host up to 50 guests at each of its various venues.
