What a wonderful hotel. Lovely rooms, relaxing atmosphere and fantastic food. But what really made it special was the people working there. Everyone was so courteous, so helpful, so attentive in every detail. And all with a smile even brighter than the sunnyest of days. Thank you to everyone for making our stay feel so special!

Every single member of staff always has a smile on their face and nothing is too much trouble. Little touches such as the neck and shoulder massage at check in, the personal welcome back from the manager, the departure chocolates and half a dozen staff waving us off, ensure that you really do feel your custom is appreciated. We will be back! Read less

We recently stayed at the Danna for 4 nights and it was absolutely perfect. We upgraded to a 5th floor sea view room when we arrived and it was worth every penny. All rooms are large but the views differ depending what side of the hotel you are. The room had a bath ( overlooking the sea), a rainfall shower, two sinks and the most comfortable super king size bed. The position of the hotel is not one of the best in Langkawi but the service puts it above any other hotel we have stayed in ( we have stayed in lots of 5 star hotels) and would definitely return. Food and beverages are expensive for Malaysia but it we couldn’t fault our meals at Planters and the Terrace which were exceptional and prices were probably on par with uk prices. They have happy hour (50% off) between 5-7pm and 10.30pm - 1.00 am so there is plenty of time to drink at reasonable prices. The hotel is situated next to a marina where there are a few shops and restaurants but it is run down with quite a few outlets are closed . However we did have a lovely meal in the Italian restaurant there one night. The pool is enormous ( 52 m wide) and plenty of sun beds, with excellent pool service. They even come around and clean your sunglasses! The beach by the hotel is pretty and quite private. Drinks were served to you there too . The hotel is only about 5 minutes drive from the cable car so we took the opportunity of doing this one morning organised through the hotel and would highly recommend it. I am writing this review from another hotel in Langkawi where we went to after our stay at the Danna. Whilst we are now staying in a hotel that definitely is situated in a more stunning location we are missing the exceptional service and food that we had at the Danna. Read less

We just arrived today for our honeymoon and are a bit disappointed for the moment. We were supposed to have a Mountain view room but the view was quite disappointing... They told us that we will have a basket of fruit and sparkling wine but we had a cheap bottle of red wine and 2 oranges... Not really what we were expecting from a hotel of this standard. Plus, the bathroom was not very clean (stains on the toilet seat) and we had to ask to clean it before using it We went to the lobby and complainted and they switched us to a room with a partial view of the Marina, a bit better. Last but not least, we were told twice when we checked in that we could have a seaview room if we paid more, even when arriving in the room and when they showed us the view. (thus confirming that the view was underwhelming...) After checking the current prices, the room with a seaview is the same price as what we paid... It would have seemed fair to give us a seaview room from the beginning and they could have made it look as a great gesture. We really hope to enjoy our honeymoon and will give an update mater.
