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.
