Nature Walks at The Andaman, Langkawi

A Macaque Monkey

A nature walk at The Andaman, is a great way to see the lush green rain forest come alive with activity from tropical birds, animals and reptiles, guided by a natue expert from the hotel.

The morning walk is a favourite to see the Great Hornbill and the Macaque and Dusky Leaf monkeys eating their breakfast, whilst the evening walk is an opportunity to see the rare flying lemurs and flying squirrels and foxes.

Or perhaps a family of wild boars might cross your path or you can spot a few of the three hundred types of butterfly in the area. Flying snakes are also found in Langkawi and were recently the focus of a National Geographic film, although are not easily spotted. Oh and also further up the bay, there is a Tarantula family living in a tree.

The forest and surrounding area near The Andaman hotel is beautiful and a trip here isn’t complete without some nature watching – you can’t miss it.

Dinner at The Pavilion, The Datai, Langkawi

The Pavilion, The Datai

The Datai hotel is an exceptionally special place. Built high in to the steep hillside it towers amid the tall rainforest canopy, giving the impression you are living in the most stylish tree house ever.

On entrance to this glamourous retreat you find yourself in a reception area with two huge carved wooden horses which stand majestically over you. To access the beach descend the polished wooden staircase, cross the sensational upper pool and take a walk down the hillside on a nature adventure which ends at the stunning beach on Datai Bay.

Dinner at the Pavilion is especially amazing as the restaurant is elevated on stilts which jut out in to the rain forest, so you are eating in the open air surrounded by the trees. At night listen and watch as the rain forest comes alive around you.

The Pavilion specialises in Thai food which is delicious.  A favourite is the lamb rubbed in red curry paste. Go to eat the most divine Thai food and enjoy the luxurious and relaxing surroundings of The Datai. You won’t want to leave…

Datai Bay, Langkawi

Datai Bay, Langkawi

If you’re dreaming of escape to a natural beach paradise, then Datai Bay in Langkawi is the destination for you.

A nearly perfect semi-circle, the bay offers clear blue water, a coral reef, a beautiful sandy beach and an incredibly dense 10,000 year old tropical forest which reaches right to the sand.

The bay is home to two fabulous hotels The Andaman and The Datai and also many types of rare wildlife, such as the Colugo also known as a flying lemur and colourful birds such as the Great Hornbill.

This really is a secret and tranquil place, surrounded by forest covered hills that climb steeply behind the bay – creating the perfect beach hideaway.

Plus this is all just a one hour flight from Singapore. Time to kick back and relax…
