Hotel Description

Just a bit farther down the Andaman Sea from the ever-popular Phuket is another equally worthy yet slightly less traveled destination — Malaysia's holiday paradise island of Langkawi. It's hardly a secret — in fact it's Malaysia's biggest tourist draw — but from the sheltered beach idyll of Datai Bay it's easy to feel remote from all that, shipwrecked on the kind of rainforest-fringed coastline that's seemingly straight out of the movies.

It's here on Datai Bay that you'll find The Andaman, whose 186 rooms are modern Asian minimal, muted in color, with graphic contrasts between light and dark and plenty of rich dark wood. Half of them face the rainforest, half the sea — the views from the upper floors over the waters of Datai Bay are extraordinary — and all are outfitted with everything you'd expect from a city hotel room, including satellite TV and broadband internet access.

Leisure offerings include the pool, the spa, tennis and even golf, not to mention the private beach club and the endless wilderness of the adjoining rainforest. A large handful of restaurants and bars means that desert island or no, nobody goes hungry or thirsty. In the end it's not exactly Robinson Crusoe, but if you want to experience what Phuket or Bali must have been like some decades ago, and do it in the highest style, this is the place to do it.
