Lovely hotel on Datai Bay

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 18, 2009

Located on Datai Bay in the northwest corner of Langkawi is the Andaman Hotel. It is a lovely resort built into the natural tropical rainforest where you can be amongst monkeys, squirrels, and other flora and fauna. A winding private road leads to the hotel as tour buses are too large to pass through.

Unique Quality: The hotel has a private beach where one can arrange a private romantic dinner on the beach with fire torches. During the day, one can relax by the pool or on the beach sipping a cool drink. There are sightseeing trips for tourists to explore other parts of Langkawi. However, most guests will luxuriate in the hotel's facilities as the hotel is tucked away in a remote corner of Langkawi some 40 minutes by car from the main town of Kuah.

Pure bliss...

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Andaman, like many hotels in Langkawi, is a luxurious resort. Expensive by Malaysian standards, it caters mainly to a European and Japanese clientele. It is located by Datai Bay, and shares a private beach with its sister property, The Datai. Facilities include a swimming pool, 5 restaurants/bar (more if you include those in The Datai, to which guests have access), a business centre and a spa. The hotel organises activities for guests, such as jungle walks, though many seemed perfectly happy lying on the beach... We had a standard room, which was perfectly adequate, with views overlooking the jungle - we were told to lock our windows when out, since monkeys are known to sneak into the rooms and wreck havoc!

Directions: Northwestern tip of Pulau Langkawi.

I did not stay here. I came here for lunch. Taxi costs are exorbitant to get out of this resort with 60RM fare to airport. Compared to 70RM for a 3 hour tour of the island from anywhere in the island this is a rip off, but if you go to the Andaman you have the money so maybe it is not that expensive. Anyway lunch here was good, I had a salad and a natural fruit juice.

Unique Quality: There is a Spa onsite, bar with band playing most nights, pool and private beach so if all you want is relax this is the place for you.

Langkawi's best kept secret

We keep going back!! and each time our stay gets longer! We appreciate the tranquillity and peacefulness of the surroundings ( unlike pantai cenang!) , the great staff, top-class service, beautiful rooms, spectacular view of the great andaman sea, baby crabs running all over the beach and the hornbills that pearch by the trees in the evening. Truly Langkawi's best kept secret, and I hope it stays this way!

A Jewel In The Rainforest

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 9, 2005

Highly recommended for a great stay!!

I was truly happy and impressed with the service of all the staff, from the waiters at the Beach Bar, the restaurants, the reception, to the expert conservationist Dev who took us on nature walks, and not forgetting the gentle but very capable hands of the treatment therapists at the spa... Malaysia boleh!!

The resort was so great that we stayed there most of the time and didn't really venture out to see the rest of Langkawi much.

Unique Quality: The resort is set in the middle of a 50 million year old rainforest, and they have done a truly great job of conserving and preserving it. So you get lots of wildlife which you would encounter on a daily basis which is rather unique! Do go on the free nature walks available as you get a most entertaining, knowledgeable conservationist to guide you.

Directions: Datai Bay

Paradise

One of the premier hotels in Langkawi, the Andaman can only be described in one word: luxurious.
I spent 2 nights there. During which my stay was very pleasant.
The Andaman's architecture is such that they build around trees, instead of chopping off the whole lot. Therefore it really gives a feeling of being in the forest. Rooms are quite spacious and the staff is friendly.
Its located along the beautiful Datai beach as well. Though the water isnt as clear as i hoped (as in pulau redang)
Of course, with the price that you pay, what else should it be but first class?

Unique Quality: great pool. has a spa nearby. thought the massages cost a bomb. starting at rm80.

my only grudge is that it is located so far away from town.

The Andaman has 188 deluxe rooms and suites. Each is furnished with king or twin beds, minibar, coffee and tea making facilities, writing desk and chair, individually controlled air-conditioning, hairdryer, ceiling fan, in-room safety box and IDD telephone lines. Lanai rooms feature sunning decks with umbrella and are on the first floor.

The Executive Suites, Malaysian Suite and Presidential Suite features king-size beds while the Japanese suite has twin beds. Each suite has one bedroom, a separate living area, spacious balcony and private bar. The Japanese and Malaysia suites are also decorated in authentic style.
