Travel Review of The Danna Hotel, Langkawi


Since I moved to Singapore in April last year with my fiancé pictured above, I promised myself I would review my travels on my blog as a way of remembering all the good times whilst recommending places that deserve truly amazing feedback. Of all the destinations I've been lucky enough to travel to recently, a standout resort I've been to has to be The Danna in Langkawi, Malaysia.

Booked as a last minute break, I wasn't sure what to expect from this stay as I'd never visited Langkawi before and I hadn't seen any reviews for the resort but for a 5-star break at the end of September and for the price we paid, it all seemed very reasonable. At risk of sounding like I'm exaggerating, I can definitely say this stay was incredible from beginning to end. The service, the food, the pool, the delicious afternoon tea, the staff and the facilities were all amazing and the place itself is totally relaxing too. In fact, it was that nice I'm embarrassed to say we didn't actually leave the resort and we felt as though if this had been our honeymoon destination, we would have been leaving as very happy guests!

Here's a snapshot of the hotel and facilities and if you ever get the chance to visit The Danna, you definitely should make it happen! 

The Infinity Pool...we seriously wanted to live here after seeing the pool overlooking the sea!  


The view from the room...


Beautiful double bathroom with gorgeous features...


The spacious double room...


The back of the hotel from the pool...dreamy!


Poolside reading...I'd recommend this book and the ice cream ;)


When room service arrived, the lovely staff set up a table as if we were in the restaurant downstairs...such amazing service! It was me who happened to have the burger and it was SO good.


The morning light and peaceful corridors...


The breakfast buffet each morning was spectacular and there are so many options to choose from, it's safe to say we ate pastries everyday, but it's hard to resist right?


Looking out to sea...the beach was just beyond the hotel so you have the option to dine there too or laze around in a hammock if you wish!


The dreamy afternoon tea even managed to impress the fiancé who isn't usually a fan of afternoon tea due to the small portions, but he loved it!


Chasing the beautiful sunsets...


Looking burnt to a crisp but enjoying myself in a hammock...


Another view from the room, how beautiful are all those colours?


The hotel also had lots of quiet places to relax and I would definitely recommend going in September time as I imagine the resort gets hectic at peak times of the year...

It's also worth noting that the resort is definitely family friendly although we went as a couple. Thers also full spa facilities, entertainment and amazing restaurants serving up different cuisines so there's lots to keep everyone busy. 
Thank you to the amazing staff at The Danna for such an incredible stay, it was perfect from the moment we arrived and we hope to visit again soon! It's also worth mentioning that this post is in no way sponsored, we simply had a great time, paid for everything and would do so again too! 
Let me know if you've enjoyed this post as I may do more travel posts if they are of interest!
