The Datai Langkawi is delighted to present Naga Pelangi – available for exclusive charter direct from the resort’s Datai Bay to explore Langkawi’s shimmering seas and captivating coastline.  The only resort to offer expedition-experiences onboard the traditional schooner, The Datai Langkawi has designed a selection of bespoke cruises – including private charters – to elevate its guest offering and showcase Langkawi’s beauty from a maritime-heritage inspired vantage point. Meaning ‘Rainbow Dragon’,

Naga Pelangi is a 97-foot, traditional wooden schooner-replica hand-built by its Nakhoda (Master Captain) Christoph, and his team of shipwrights, in the famous boat yards of Duyong Island in Terengganu. Made from Chengal Wood – found only in Malaysia, home to some of the world’s oldest rainforests – Naga Pelangi was crafted between 2004-2009, both for sailing pleasure and to preserve tradition. It follows time-honoured pinas design lines, while offering the finest in modern yacht fittings and finesse. These striking sailing boats have been conquering the South China Seas for centuries.  The Naga Pelangi wonderfully evokes a bygone time of pioneering discovery and fantastical adventure.

A magnificent extension of The Datai Langkawi experience, the exceptional resort team run the onboard service – including delicious food and beverages as well as onboard massages – ensuring every guests’ wish will be catered for in uncompromising Datai Langkawi style. From its 10-million year old rainforest location to its award-winning private beach and now to its elite oceanic expeditions, The Datai Langkawi offers an unrivalled Langkawi experience and a truly world-class hideaway, where natural heritage and superlative service ensure the extraordinary.
