Activities, diving & excursions
The jungle-fringed, landscaped swimming pool is close to the beach and complimentary snorkelling equipment is offered to guests. Andaman’s marine science students run the Marine Life Laboratory — an interactive session where you can learn more about the island’s marine life. There’s also the chance to take part in coral feeding, transplantation and private coral tours.
Non-motorised water sports such as kayaking, windsurfing and sailing are also available, payable locally.
There’s also a fully-equipped gym at the hotel and a nearby golf course.
Malay cooking classes (available on request) allow guests to try their hands at traditional Malaysian cooking and complimentary mountain bicycles are available for those wishing to follow the jogging and hiking trails on the map provided by the concierge.
A highlight are the free nature walks into the pristine rainforest accompanied by the resort's naturalist, Irshad. Irshad and his team have been studying the rainforest here for over 20 years, and can proudly point out more than 80 species of butterfly, endemic birdlife and know where the white-bellied sea eagles sleep each night.
The morning walk begins at 8am while the evening walk begins at 7pm, running daily except Monday. Each walk is approximately one and a half hours and guests are invited to dress comfortably in strong sandals or sport shoes. The groups are limited to a maximum of 12 people so it’s best to book the day before.
