A week of pure luxury

Having stayed at the The Datai a number of years ago I can honestly say that the resort has grown more beautiful over time. The upkeep is clearly first class (no wonder with over 400 staff - a 4:1 ratio to guests) and the level of service is amazing. I was with my family of 5 including 3 school aged children. Everywhere we went the staff were just so friendly and enthusiastic, nothing was a problem. From complimentary mango ice creams on the beach to the fresh fruit in our rooms every day it was a true 5 star experience in a beautiful natural setting. We saw monkeys playing in the trees around our pool, lush rainforest and of course the stark beauty of the resort itself.
