Luxury hotel holiday The Datai Langkawi

The Datai is an exclusive island resort, surrounded by rainforest on Langkawi island. With access to a pristine sandy beach, this resort is as much a haven for its guests as it is for the flora and fauna who share the island. Interiors are furnished in the traditional Malay style and there are plenty of spaces for guests to relax and absorb the peaceful ambience. Facilities include restaurants, pools, water sports and spa. We recommend the Datai for long, luxurious island getaways.

Travel around Malaysia

Roads on the peninsula are generally high quality; road rules are basically the same as in Britain, with right-hand drive vehicles, and cars driving on the right. This makes car-hire in Malaysia a breeze compared with most other Asian countries, although roads can be rough on Borneo, where 4x4 jeeps are essential. Buses are an excellent and cheap option, as are boats and ferries which sail between the peninsula and offshore islands. As for trains, Peninsular Malaysia has a modern, comfortable and economical railway service that has basically two lines. One runs from Singapore to KL, then to Butterworth and on into Thailand. The other line, known as the Jungle Railway, cuts through the interior of Malaysia linking Gemas, Taman Negara with Kota Bharu, a transit town for Pulau Perhentian.
