Nature at The Andaman, Datai Bay, Langkawi, Malaysia

Conservation Efforts at The Andaman, Langkawi


Nestled in between 10 000 year old rainforest and 8000 year old coral reef, The Andaman Langkawi is a nature lover's paradise. The beautiful Datai Bay is one of the oldest places on earth. Some scientists say it carries history of where life itself began. The Andaman is one of a few resorts on the island attempting to make a positive impact on their surrounds. Sustainable menu options, a coral rehabilitation nursery, a nature inspired kids' club, consultant marine biologist and naturalist, are a few efforts in play. While a complete review of the property will be published later on this site, I couldn't wait to share some pics of our encounters with local flora and fauna thus far.
