4. Sights and sounds of the Malaysian rainforest…for our nature lovers….

Set against a wilderness backdrop of primordial mountains, the pristine 10 million-year-old rainforest is home to a wealth of flora and fauna. The resort’s private footpath leads to dreamy Datai Bay’s idyllic white-sand beach, one of the Top 10 Beaches worldwide as awarded by National Geographic. Resident naturalist Irshad Mobarak, and his team of naturalists and marine biologists, are sharing videos of the extraordinary plants and wildlife roaming around the resort from the Long-tailed macaque, Black giant squirrel, Oriental-pied hornbill to the Sunda colugos….. which are visiting much more frequently with the resort closed to guests. The Datai will also share regular updates from the resort’s permaculture garden to inspire and encourage homegrown produce, as well as the latest research and findings from the resort’s onsite lab.
