when you stare at the abyss, the abyss stares back at you


The Datai, Langkawi

Emailed a friend we made at The Datai when we stayed in Langkawi earlier this year. Found out that he was recently promoted when we met him, but we didn’t realize it then.

Good for you Guido!

The hospitality at The Datai and the quality of holiday combined to make me think back often in the past 2 months to those short 4 days we had there. I have to give it to them; the folks at The Datai really know how to set their guests up for relaxation from the moment you check in. Room’s very pretty and comfy, pool’s always inviting, nature walks give a different feel to being city-bound.

Other things such as food, although slightly on the expensive side, was well prepared every time and the spread, ambience at different restaurants close to perfect. Weather was fantastic and although that’s more luck than anything else, it does add to the overall enjoyment of the holiday.

Holidays are good for the soul. They give the mind a pleasant memory to reminisce about and also a positive inclination to go on and plan for the next one. Irregardless of whether it’s to return to someplace familiar or to go explore somewhere new.

Can’t wait for the next trip.
