We reported very briefly on the The Datai Langkawi a while back when a top hotel inspector added the place to his top hotels list.

But now we want to take a closer look. For starters, the Datai is located within a tropical rainforest on the northwestern tip of the island of Langkawi (off the coast of mainland Malaysia). So already you have an amazing location to work with.

Inside the hotel, there are four different types of accommodations--deluxe rooms, pool villas, superior villas and suites--yet all of them have at least a bedroom and a living room area, along with technological amenities like a BOSE stereo system and get this, complimentary high-speed internet.

More about the hotel can be found on its web site where cutesy little poems like this one deliver the information you want to hear.

Blended to echo nature, mixed with style and fine traditions, It maintains quality and excellence as its overwhelming missions. Look around you and you’ll notice subtlety and air, Of a hotel-experience that is beyond all compare.

Elsewhere on the resort you will find a golf course, a spa and four dining options. We are pretty much sold on the resort just judging from the pictures alone, but luckily the TripAdvisor reviews stack up as well. Everyone praises the location and the service. In fact, the only thing wrong about the resort is that it's not a great place for singles.

Naturally, the place has won some accolades and the folks over at Five Star Alliance named the hotel as one of Malaysia's top luxury picks. Another sign that this place is as good as it looks? The candid photos on TripAdvisor which are notoriously crappy (think blurry snapshots and pointless portraits) look like near perfection so you can imagine that this place is even better in real life.

Unfortunately, you may want to wait another year before heading here. The resort is starting a series of (needed) room renovations in May. It will still be open during the renovations but we say wait until December 2007 when its completed to enjoy the full effect.
