The Datai - Villa Hutan Datai

VillA HutaN DataI

Perched dramatically on the hillside among the tree tops of centuries–old rainforest, the luxuriously private Villa Hutan Datai is managed by The Datai and enjoys breathtaking views of Datai Bay.

Surrounded by the sounds and sights of the jungle, you watch amazed as a pair of flying squirrels sail from tree to tree.  Monkeys, hornbills, eagles and flying foxes carry on their centuries old habits within the pristine environment of the rainforest.


Luxuriously appointed Malay style suites are separately raised on stilts with connecting walkways around the villa.  Malaysian antiques, carvings and statues blend seamlessly with waterfalls and ponds around the 15 metre long central pool.

All bedrooms have individually controlled air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite TV, DVD/CD, mini bar, hairdryer, personal safes, separate shower and soaking tub plus a balcony.  The master bedroom features a Jacuzzi plus computer with complimentary internet access.

The living pavilion showcases the owners’ private collection of Asian artifacts displaying silver, ceramics, paintings and sculptures.

An outdoor bar and BBQ plus a European styled kitchen are available for private catering.
