The Nature Centre

The design of this unique open-air building is inspired by a tribal bamboo longhouse. There is a library full of references to the natural world of Langkawi and Malaysia, a lounge for guests to sit and listen to stories from the wild by Resident Naturalist, Irshad Mobarak, and team.

Resident Naturalist

Irshad Mobarak has been a keen naturalist since childhood. Inspired by the lives and deeds of pioneer naturalists and explorers, Irshad left a banking career and has, since then, devoted his life to helping ordinary people unlock the mysteries of the natural world.

Nature Experiences

Our team of resident naturalists and marine biologists have curated experiences and activities to allow you to discover the unique flora and fauna of the resort.

WHEN I BREATHE IN, YOU FILL ME
WHEN I BREATHE OUT, I FILL YOU
I AM YOU AND YOU ARE ME
ENTWINED. INSEPERABLE
