The Andaman, a Luxury Collection Resort, Langkawi is not only blessed with a stunning 10 million year old verdant rainforest as its backdrop, but beneath the glistening waters of the bay fronting the resort lies another underwater rainforest - a coral reef estimated to be between 6,000 and 8,000 years old. While this reef is only a fringing reef, and not absolutely ideal for snorkelling, it provides a great trail for reef walks where one can learn more about marine biology. The Andaman Resort organizes various activities in the hope of conserving this natural habitat and to provide further education and knowledge for our future generations. You may explore these activities either at our Coral Nursery or our newly launch Marine Life Laboratory.
PRIVATE GUIDED SNORKEL
The Coral Nursery is home to many beautiful species of coral, fish, sea cucumbers, crabs and more. It is a microcosm of the main fringing reef in front of the hotel. Everybody who enters the nursery is fitted with a life jacket and then ‘floated’ around the pool with a running commentary of all you can see.
We are transplanting corals that have been rescued from loose substrates and eventually returning them to the main reef flat. Learn all about how corals grow, feed, reproduce and interact with one another.
CORAL NURSERY FEEDING
A wonderful opportunity for kids of all ages to experience what it is like to feed corals, fish, lobsters crabs and more!
MARINE LIFE DISCOVERY
Browse the Marine Life Laboratory with one of Andaman's Marine Science students. Discover unusual creatures that frequent our 8000 year old reef. See tiny marine life under a microscope and see our Tiget Tail seahorse hunting for microscopic prey.
Morning Session 10am - 12pm
This is the activity that started it all as a result of guests’ kindness. Join us for an hour of ‘gentle labouring’ as we clear away dead coral from the reef flat, left behind from the 2004 tsunami.
GUIDED CORAL REED WALKS
A fascinating educational and fun guided walk out onto the main reef flat at selected times each month when lower tides permit. Numbers limited for safety and enjoyability.

This Resort is the best by far of any that we have stayed in(over 160 around the world). We were taken by the sheer beauty and elegance of the establishment. Service by the staff was first class,the resort was spotless,pool and beach area pristine.We were celebrating our 42nd wedding Anniversary and could not have selected a better Resort.We have promised ourselves that we wiill return.Our congratulations to Management and Staff - you are winners.We cannot and have not stopped talking about The Anderman to our friends and family.Whilst we thoroughly enjoyed every facility available, our favourites were The Beach Bar, Jala and the pool area.Special thanks to Mizan(who surprised us with cake and chocolates for my wife)and Shirley, both made us feel more than welcome.
