The hotel

Enjoy a well-earned break, relaxing by the poolside perhaps or lingering over a long in either The Restaurant overlooking the freeform swimming pool or the beachfront Tepian Laut. Els Club Teluk Datai Golf course is located a mere four minutes from the resort, so if you fancy a few holes remember to bring your clubs!

We spent a week here for our silver wedding with our grown up children (20 and 21). The biggest selling point for the hotel is the stunning setting but the most impressive is the ethos and attitude of the staff, at all levels. Everyone was so friendly, went out of their way to ask about your day and give advice, and it stands out every day. The resort is spotless, the weather spectacular. The games room is a real bonus for rainy days, bring books too as sometimes the rain sets in for hours but you can watch from lots of gorgeous seating areas with views. Lots of young families here. The spa was truly amazing, having a 90 minute massage in a thunderstorm was fabulous! Who needs relax phone apps when you can do that instead? Breakfast was huge, every taste catered for from noodles and rice, exotic fruits, waffles and pancakes, eggs, cereals, cheese- just the best. Food in the lobby and Tepian Laut is the most reasonable and all was superb quality. It’s just a beautiful and relaxing resort, wish we could afford every year!! Read less

This hotel is something out of a fairytale. It’s simply stunning! The view from our room was amazing. The food in the restaurants was also top notch! We thought we would feel a bit “secluded” from everything, but this hotel has so much to offer, it was just perfect. Great surroundings with crazy wildlife!

My wife and I stayed at the Andaman 9th - 17th July. We had a great time, check-in was fine and efficient, bags taken to the room during the process. The rooms are a little dated and could to with a spruce up, but were perfectly adequate, cleaned to a high standard daily.

My wife and I stayed at the Andaman 9th - 17th July. We had a great time, check-in was fine and efficient, bags taken to the room during the process. The rooms are a little dated and could to with a spruce up, but were perfectly adequate, cleaned to a high standard daily. However, we booked a swim-up room, this was ok and the long thin pool served about 8 rooms on our block. But was quiet, so no issue, the issue was the size and layout of the, erm patio, if you could call it that. There was no protection from the rain, and if you forgot to pull up the mattresses after using them on the loungers, they were wet through after the daily rains we had (it’s a rain Forrest, so only to be expected), but no shelter. We tried three restaurants whilst there, all decent quality, but, and this is quite a bugbear of mine. Children, I have nothing against kids, I had 2 of my own, now all grown up, however, 2 of the 3 restaurants were like playgrounds, with no controls, not even a separate adults area, I think the hotel should consider this, especially at breakfast, if you go after 8:30, it is very busy, and coupled with feral kids running round, it’s as much a safety issue than my little bugbear. Now the best bit. The beach bar. This is run by a supervisor called Taufik, and his team, Kamal, Jama and Ayu, made our time there fun and enjoyable as a stand out team. That said, all staff that we came into contact with were polite, friendly and very courteous. Thanks for a great time, but please consider adult only areas to allow a more relaxing experience. The beach bar team...... Read less

We stayed at the Andaman in June for a week and it was a truly unforgettable experience. Everything from the amenities, food, beautiful staff and pristine beach made the stay nothing short of incredible. We booked in a Rainforest room and received a room upgrade to the Seaview room and totally blown away by the views of the sea. If we returned, we will definitely stay in a Sea room. We loved the location, removed from the hustle and bustle of Langkawi and the most scenic spot on the island. We left a few times for Island hopping and a bike tour, and to check out Pantai Cenang, but every time were totally spoilt to return to the beauty of the Andaman. It was a truly unforgettable holiday made perfect by the people. To Amirul, BJ and Arif, thank you for the most memorable private dining experience on our first night where we got engaged. We will never forget this amazing experience. The setting was spectacular on the balcony looking over the sea, and the food, drinks and service were world class! You made us feel so special and it was one of the most memorable experiences we will ever have! Thank you for making our engagement so memorable. We were so grateful to our wonderful Guest Experience Manager, Rajah, who made us feel so welcome during our stay. A true gentleman, Rajah arranged everything we inquired about and we were so grateful for our room upgrade to the spectacular Sea View room where we spent the second half of our stay. Not to mention the complimentary bottle of bubbles to toast our engagement. Thank you Mr Rajah for making our stay with the Andaman the most incredible week away we have ever had! Each day started at The Restaurant with the smiling faces of Raven, Nia and Alina. Breakfasts were amazing and across our week we sampled the smorgasbord of international delights from fresh fruit to European pastries, to local dishes and hot breakfasts. Raven, Nia and Alina were wonderful hosts and always made us feel so welcome and taken care of. We even had a complimentary champagne breakfast on our final morning which was an absolute treat, thank you Raven! To Majesh, Ronny and the INCREDIBLE chef Shankran and Tepian Laut - Wow, what an incredible restaurant, right on the water, with dinners that never failed to impress! We went once quite early on in our stay, and then booked our for the rest of the trip there. We loved chef's Indian food and got the nightly special which was of world class quality! We also enjoyed many lunches and afternoon drinks on the deck at Tepian Laut absorbing the beautiful view. THE BEACH BAR BOYS! Amirul, Arif, Faiz and Kamal - you guys are absolute legends and we had a lot of fun hanging out with you by the water and enjoying your specialty Black Mumba drink! We spent most days reading in the parasol chairs and these guys at the Beach Bar made sure that all our needs were taken care of. After we tried the Beer and Burger special, we didn't go anywhere else for lunch! And the good times rolled in all afternoon! The Andaman will always hold a special part in our hearts after getting engaged there - words can't express how much we loved this holiday. Truly amazing. We will be back. Read less
