In my memory, the Datai was one of the first ultra luxury hotels ever that were to grace our shores, and I remember visiting it circa 1995, and thought to myself, WOW, this place is stunning.  Till today, I have yet to fulfil that bucket list item of staying there, the best I've done is staying next door at the Andaman.  In days of yore, they were under the same management, so we were allowed to saunter across, and even had meal in their (Datai's) restaurant, The Gulai House.  Such nostalgia.

So my interest was piqued when I heard about this opportunity to win a 3D/2N stay for two in the Datai, Langkawi.

I posted about the Cloudy Bay Food Trail HERE, in awhile back in April.  So, all you have to do really, is participate in the exciting Instagram contest from 1st May to 30th June 2014. This is a chance for wine lovers to taste the perfect pairing of wine with seafood at participating restaurants and win the aforementioned  3D/2N stay for TWO at the award winning 5 star hotel, The Datai Langkawi.

Just share your best Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2013 and paired seafood menu. Remember to hashtag #cloudybaymsia and tag @cloudybayseafoodtrail. The instagrammer with the most photos of paired seafood menu from as many participating restaurants WILL win.

 The stunning Datai, a 5 star resort (actually more like 6)  nestled in the tropical virginal rainforests, with a gorgeous private beach, facing the spectacular Andaman Sea.  Lots of nature activities too, from what I hear. Nature hikes and tours, jungle walks, etc. led by Irshad Mobarak, one of Malaysia’s most celebrated naturalists with over 26 years experience in the field.  A strong advocate for the conservation of Langkawi’s fragile natural heritage, Irshad introduces guests to Asian fairy bluebirds, Oriental-pied hornbills and dusky leaf langurs, among other local wildlife.

Complimentary morning and evening nature walks are available to all guests. The tours run for about 90 minutes.
