The elegant arrival portal.

From the outside, intricate wrought iron balcony railings add to a sophisticated look that is both subtle and classic, harking back to the days when the rubber barons made their fortunes in what was then Malaya — note the pith helmet-wearing doorman.

Nothing ’standard’ about this luxury bed.

The generously sized rooms with private balconies fit with the colonial theme but are still tastefully contemporary. High ceilings have subdued lighting hidden behind ceiling cornices that work to further expand the spacious feel of the rooms. Classic wood casement windows and high polished wood floors lend elegance while simple dark wood furniture keeps things from getting too over the top.

And the views? Stunning is an understatement, particularly from those rooms overlooking the seafront. Some suites overlook the massive three-tier infinity pool as well as the adjacent beachfront and the nearby yacht-filled marina, while others simply offer the manicured grounds with glimpses of the surrounding rainforest of neighbouring Gunung Mat Cincang.

The infinity pool and then some.

There are quite a few in-house dining options, including the casual Straights & Co. and The Planters’ fine dining, all with delicious cuisine and impeccable service. Cigar aficionados can light up in the posh Drawing Room.

The Library and Reading Room offer chess players a quiet spot to hone their skills, while the Billiard Room, complete with classic mounted faux deer heads, continues the planter-style feel. The traditional Game Room offers guests a place to be challenged by one of its vast selection of classic games, from darts to Monopoly.

Other facilities include of course a spa with a panoramic view, a state-of-the-art gym and a retail shop. The Danna Langkawi is also kid friendly, with a Children’s Club and a kids’ pool.

Anyone for a game of eight-ball?

The real highlight here though is that spectacular three-tire pool, set picturesquely against the backdrop of the Andaman Sea as well as the ancient rainforest. If you’re a high-end traveller, or just looking for a special spot to spend a single night at the end of a long trip, The Danna is a worthwhile choice.
