You’ll find the luxurious Danna Langkawi Hotel at Telaga Harbour Park, home to a boardwalk lined with buzzing bars and restaurants (including Langkawi’s only Italian, Mare Blu). Order a prosecco and watch super-yachts bobbing on the sunlit water while you wait for your pizza to arrive.
After checking in, you’ll have a colonial-inspired room waiting. Expect sumptuous furnishings in burnished orange tones, intricately carved dark wood furniture and floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the ocean beyond. In a suite, every day can end with a soak in your private outdoor Jacuzzi. And when it’s time for lights out? Roll onto your four-poster bed and disappear under freshly turned-down sheets.
In the morning, make sure to visit the serene Danna Spa on the top floor. After downing a zingy ginger welcome drink, try the Traditional Malay Urut treatment. This deep pressure massage uses traditional Malay techniques and calming blended oils to get you into a blissed-out state.
You’ll find three restaurants at the Danna Hotel come lunchtime. Grab a seat outside at Planter’s to look over the infinity pool as you sample British Malay fusion cuisine. You can begin with a fresh platter of local seafood, like succulent prawns and seared scallops, before moving onto a traditional dry beef curry slow-cooked in coconut cream and freshly ground Asian spices.
