Long-tailed Macaque (aka crab-eating macaque) Monkeys are very common on Langkawi. This one seemed to be wecoming us to the Datai
One wing of the Datai. The resort also has individual villas located in the jungle.
One of two swimming pools. The other is located near the beach facilities.
The architecture of the resort has won a number of awards. Note Eleanor peaking out of an opening in the lower right.

This macaque has "broken into" a room to steel the pistachios and chips. The occupants failed to lock the door.
Lobby of the Datai Hotel
This is the Thai restaurant - one of three at the resort. The sister resort, the Andaman, located on the same Datai Bay is larger and has 4 restaurants which we could also use.
This lily pond is in the reception of the hotel.

Irshad Mabarak is the naturalist at the Datai and led nature walks each morning and evening. He became a friend and talked a lot about the wildlife on Langkawi.
This is a colugo, until a couple of years ago thought to be a gluiding lemur, but now considered to be a primate based upon DNA analysis
These geckos can be heard in the evening
