The Datai Estate Villa at Datai Langkawi, Malaysia
Suite Size: Occupying a whopping 3,500 square metres — that's 37,600 square feet, thank you very much — The Datai Estate Villa is one of the largest of its kind in all of Asia.
Suite Specs: The Datai Estate Villa comprises five bedrooms including one master, each with its own balcony and ensuite bathroom with standalone bathtub. There are two living areas, two connecting swimming pools, two dining rooms, a bar with a pool table, and a flexible space that can be transformed to suit guests’ needs — from a children’s playroom to a spa treatment room, or even a small private gym.
Guests can enjoy 24-hour butler service and their very own private chef, who specialises in authentic regional flavours. Also included are airports transfers, daily afternoon tea and an à la carte breakfast served in the comfort of the villa or at the resort’s The Beach Club restaurant.
Suite Design: Bathed in natural light and decorated in rich neutral tones, interior designer and architect Didier Lefort takes inspiration from Malaysia’s craftsmen and artisans, paying tribute to the country’s rich heritage and the local environment. Meanwhile, contemporary touches and comforts, and warm sensual lighting, anchor the suite in the present day.

The hotel was built, and continues to be exquisitely maintained, with utmost respect for its surroundings, thanks to its dedicated team of on-site naturalists and marine biologists.
