Located on the picturesque northwest tip of Langkawi island in Malaysia, The Datai Langkawi is an extraordinary resort nestled within ancient rainforests overlooking serene Datai Bay. This iconic property offers 121 rooms, villas, and suites, all with breathtaking views of the surrounding natural beauty.

Recently, The Datai Langkawi released its second Impact Report for The Datai Pledge, a comprehensive sustainability, conservation, and community support program launched in August 2021. This report highlights significant accomplishments, including achieving zero-waste-to-landfill status, saving substantial waste, collecting endangered tree seedlings, creating a wildlife corridor, and re-establishing a turtle hatchery in Datai Bay, marking the return of turtle landings after a decade.

The Datai Pledge’s four pillars aim to integrate sustainability across all facets of the resort’s operations, guest experiences and company ethos, fostering harmony between people and nature while supporting local communities and biodiversity. The Nature Centre at The Datai offers opportunities for conservation and research participation, including reef protection, reforestation insights, and stingless beehive honey harvesting, enhancing the resort’s commitment to environmental responsibility and guest engagement.
