Nestled in the heart of an ancient rainforest, The Datai Langkawi is a captivating destination golfing resort that blends into its natural surroundings. Situated on the mystical island of Langkawi in Malaysia, the resort’s lush tropical rainforest essence embraces each room, suite and villa, with private verandas and breathtaking views. This serene haven is where you can reconnect with nature and uplift your soul.
The famous Els Club Teluk Datai Golf Course is just a 5-minute drive from this ultra-impressive resort in one of South East Asia’s most sensational settings. It’s often described as a tropical paradise by visitors and earning the course a reputation as the most scenic of Malaysia’s many breath-taking golfing venues.
A 10-million-year-old rainforest is the backdrop to the course, with the surrounding appeal of the blue waters of the Straits of Malacca.
The five holes, which skirt the water’s edge, bring the other islands in the archipelago and Langkawi’s white, sandy beaches into full view,
to the delight of all golfers.
The flawlessly manicured playing surfaces at The Els Club Teluk Datai are a constant, in true tribute to the design which carries its creator’s name. With no bunkers on the course, the layout relies on strategically placed tree-lines and a naturally meandering stream, spectacular views across the Straits of Malacca and shadowed by the Mat Chinchang mountain."
The Els Club Teluk Datai also offers state-of-the-art club facilities, including buggies equipped with GPS units, a well stocked golf shop and full-amenity locker rooms, as well as relaxation areas in the clubhouse. Every element of your gaming experience has been considered, from a dedicated team of caddies and instructors to the personalised engraved bag tags, presenting players with a unique and sophisticated golfing experience.

The Bluffs Grand Ho Tram Strip was designed to capture the true essence of links-style golf.

It's always there, and its prevailing direction and strength differs depending on the time of year. Said the course’s designer, Greg Norman: “The experience of playing true links golf among the dunes of southern Vietnam and having dramatic ocean views throughout your round has made The Bluffs Grand Ho Tram Strip one of the most unique golf experiences in the world.”
