ore than 5 stars service
It was a excellent stay we had in datai hotel. Everything is close to perfect . We had a warm and friend welcome from Daniel , he explain everything in detail about the resort and all the information. The breakfast was good, especially the pastries. The foods at the pavilion was good with reasonable portions . The beach was okay, not as good as before. The canopy premium room is spacious and good for small family. I must say the services from the concierge to the housekeeping , the staffs were so professional. We will definitely come back. Keep up the good work datai.
