The Andaman embarked on a Coral Conservation project after discovering a 8,000 year old coral reef in its shores that was badly damaged by the 2004 Tsunami. Since then, the resort conducts monthly Coral Clearing activities and takes guests on educational Coral Walks to learn about this fragile ecosystem, and The Andaman has build a Coral Nursery in efforts to rescue and rehabilitate Corals.
Els Club Teluk Datai
Els Club Teluk Datai is one of the world's most uniquely captivating golf projects as designed by Ernie Els, a former World No.1 professional golfer. It is also being touted by Destination Resorts and Hotels (DRH) and Troon Golf as Southeast Asia's most exotic golf experience. From the array of natural flora and fauna, Els Club Teluk Datai was designed with strict environmentally friendly guidelines.
Set in a pristine rainforest, believed to be at least 10 million years old, The Andaman is blessed with an abundance of plant-life and wildlife. The lush foliage around the hotel is home to some of the most fascinating animals including the great hornbill, the dusky leaf monkey, the rare colugo (flying lemur of South East Asia), macaques, lizards and geckos, a wide variety of birds and over 300 species of butterflies.
Choose between the easy 1.5km jog along the low waterline of Datai Bay or the 6km run along the golf course and the cost to Langkawi Falls, just a short distance from Temurun Waterfalls.

My family recently had a short holiday at The Andaman, and our only complaint is that we were unable to stay for much longer! Everything met or exceeded our expectations. The accommodation, level of comfort, and resort facilities were of the highest standard. Before our visit, I researched all the better resorts on Langkawi, and chose The Andaman because it seemed the best fit for us: comfort, a superb pool, dining flexibility, a good beach, and lots of wildlife nearby. We used the spa and fitness centre, and participated in several excellent tours. We found everything to be of the highest standard. I had noticed a small number of negative comments on travel review sites, and we discussed these during our stay, surprised that anyone could rate any aspect of the resort as less than 10 out of 10. Perhaps these were old comments, and management had already addressed these concerns?
The staff were not only efficient and competent, but very friendly in a respectful way. All staff, whether pool attendants, waiters, cleaners or desk staff, had a friendly smile and "good morning" whenever we encountered them. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them, and our every request was met.
Perhaps one of the best features of The Andaman is its "eco-resort" status. This isn't just a badge or tokenism. Not only is wildlife protected, and encouraged to co-exist on the property, but the resort is engaged in a range of initiatives to lessen its environmental footprint: composting, rainwater capture, a coral nursery, and a genuine effort to educate guests on features of the natural environment all contribute to a healthy balance between the resort and its surroundings. The broad diversity of wildlife on the grounds and in adjacent forests suggests a successful balance. I've stayed at many hotels which use terms like "lush tropical gardens" for sanitised, artificial grounds - The Andaman is not one of these. The gardens and pool area retain much of the original rainforest vegetation. Little wonder that hornbills, fruit-pigeons, leaf-monkeys, kingfishers and lemurs are all breeding residents, and a hawk-owl roosts in the pool area!
A few reviewers on other websites have criticised the isolation of The Andaman, but this makes it possible to fully integrate the resort with the surrounding rainforest and wildlife. In any case, we had no trouble getting to other places on the island, though we gave up our original intention of hiring a car because we thought it better to spend our time enjoying the wonderful facilities of The Andaman!
