Immerse yourself in the middle of a 10-million-year-old rainforest at the Datai in Malaysia. Visionary architect Kerry Hill designed the hotel to unveil the hidden treasures of the rainforest and used the natural surroundings to guide the development, keeping environmental preservation at the forefront. As a result, the hotel blends seamlessly into its lush surroundings. The Datai’s namesake suite, part of the canopy collection, has an expansive balcony that wraps around the entire space, so you can truly take in the virgin rainforest. Keep a lookout for the great hornbill, the dusky leaf monkey and the rare colugo. World-renowned resident naturalist, Irshad Mobarak leads nature walks every morning and evening.
