The Datai Bay Beach
Unspoilt as the ancient rainforest that fringes the shore of the Datai Bay. The white-sand beach curves gently in a protective crescent moon around the bay to create a stretch of sand that is 1.5 kilometres long and 30 metres wide at normal tide.

Nature Walk
A team of resident naturalists and marine biologists have curated on-site nature walk experiences and activities to allow you to discover the unique flora and fauna of the resort.

Regenerative Impact

Taking on its responsibility to conserve and strengthen nature’s increasingly fragile resources and to reduce the negative impact of its footprint on the environment, The Datai Langkawi created The Datai Pledge, a four-pillared programme anchored on the single-minded objective of creating a sustainable environment for the future.

Pure for the Future underpins Datai Langkawi’s commitment to being a sustainable business through reducing the use of natural resources, reducing carbon footprint, achieving zero waste to the landfill, and regenerating natural systems
Seeking to address the prevalence of unsustainable fishing practice in the seas around Langkawi, which has negatively impacted marine biodiversity, The Datai Langkawi launched its Fish for the Future programme, which includes coral reef rehabilitation, community outreach, and artificial reef building.
In the last century, Langkawi has lost nearly half of its natural wildlands. The Datai Langkawi’s Wildlife for the Future programmes aim to protect and restore the natural heritage of the island through establishing wildlife corridors, repopulating natives tree species, and educating local stakeholders on the importance of reforesting, protecting, and conserving Langkawi’s natural heritage.
The Datai Langkawi recognizes the importance of involving young people in the conversation of sustainability, climate change, and the environment. In partnership with Green Growth Asia Foundation, the hotel spearheads programmes designed to educate youth on sustainability and conservation, and engender an appreciation of nature via teamwork and community engagement
