Beautiful Langkawi & it’s STUNNING wildlife….


The Andaman Resort is located on the north side of the tropical island of Langkawi, Malaysia.

This 4.5 star resort is one of the best places I have ever stayed 🙂

Hidden away between a 10 million year old rainforest and the jade coloured waters of Datai Bay – this really is heaven on earth 🙂

What I loved the most was the how the hotel was immersed in the rainforest…I could feel it. I literally felt immersed in it.

Our room was gorgeous, well appointed and the beds were super comfortable.

The amenities and service were fantastic – from the way they called me ‘Miss Christine’ and ‘the dancing queen, {more about that in another post!} the service in the restaurants, the cool ‘orange’ spritzers on the beach and the AWESOME band all added to the ambience of this beautiful hotel…

Each day, we sat on the beach and swam in the cool waters of the Andaman Sea…I love being nurtured by the sea….I think all of us have forgotten how wonderful it is just to float and be…I loved it….silently beneath the waves, taking it all in…fabulous 🙂

As the hotel is very secluded….{think partner} you can walk, listen and observe all that exists in this magical place.

I enjoyed one of the best massages I’ve ever had at the V Wellness Spa. I was massaged in an open air villa overlooking the Andaman sea…It was absolute bliss.

There was SO MUCH WILDLIFE to be seen and enjoyed at the hotel..

I was lucky enough to see the Malaysian flying lemur {or Sunda} right outside my room…I mean literally…

The Sunda flying lemur is not a lemur and does not fly. Instead, it spreads out with it’s membrane and leaps amongst the  trees. It is strictly arboreal, is active at night, and feeds on soft plant parts such as young leaves, shoots, flowers, and fruits.

Each day, they looked like this…back from their night flight, resting and chilling out…

Look closely, there are three lemur’s..resting quietly, right outside my door…

The next day, I saw something moving beneath one of the lemurs and quickly went and got my camera.

This is what I saw….

A baby lemur…peeping out…it was so fabulous, it was as if he was posing for the camera 🙂

The young are born undeveloped and helpless and attach themselves to the mother’s belly, in a pouch formed from the mother’s tail membrane. They are eventually weaned at approx around 6 months old,

How cool is that?

I was also lucky enough to see a Oriental Pied Hornbill. These magnificent birds frequent the tropical rainforest’s of Asia and are characterised by an unusual, long ‘horn like’ bill structure. This large bill assists with catching prey, fighting, preening as well as nest building.

Again, this gorgeous bird was right outside my door 🙂

The hotel had an abundance of monkeys that could be seen at all times of the day {we even had a cheeky monkey come into one of our rooms!}

My favourite was the Dusky Leaf Monkey. Characterised by its dark grey/black fur and two white ‘eye glasses’, it frequents the tropical rainforest’s of Malaysia..

This subject was SO much fun to watch…
