The Datai Langkawi Videos
The Datai Resort in Langkawi Island, Malaysia is one of the most prestigious resorts in the region of South East Asia. This is a follow up story to my original story of The Datai. In this segment, I will share with you about the Datai's rainforest and it's surroundings in picture and videos.

In the video above, you see a 360 degrees view of the lower section at the Datai. A wooden walkway form the villas joins to this area, a buggy waiting area, one of the restaurants, a swimming pools and the entrance to the Datai beach.
In the video above, you can hear the strong rainforest sounds caused by various types of insects.

Buggies are provided for guest in the event of rain or if you are not up to walking around. The villas are about five to ten minutes walk to the main resort building or to the beach.The Datai Villa Room Video - Entire room and bathroom
The video above shows you the entire room and bathroom of one of the villas at the Datai. The sheer size of it justifies the price you are paying when you book the Datai villas.
The Datai walkways around the resort are tastefully done to blend in with nature and makes your exploration around the resort very soothing and relaxing. At various parts, traditional paper umbrellas are available for the guests to use when it rains. From an observation here, most of the guest prefer to walk rather than use the buggy service provided.
When you walk around the Datai, you will be pleased to know that everything here is absolutely well taken care of by the management in a bid to conserve the natural rainforest. Wooden walkways are strategically placed around for the guest to enjoy the beauty here. Occasionally on your walks, you are bound to bump into resident monkeys, squirrels or even small lizards. Bird lovers will also have a chance to hear and see some of the rare tropical birds of Langkawi.

Parts of the wooden walkways will cross streams and wooden bridges are built to match the walkways. Stop and admire pure nature of the Langkawi rainforest while listening to the natural sounds of the insects and birds here.

Final Note - If you are an avid rainforest and nature lover who would like a secluded, hassle free and luxurious breakaway from the concrete jungle, The Datai is one of the top rated places in the region to consider. Prices are above average compared to the normal 5 Star resorts but the impeccable service makes up for everything.
