The Datai Pledge

The Datai Pledge is a Private Trust dedicated to improving the well-being of the environment, wildlife and local community of Langkawi. Initiated in 2019 to create a robust conservation and sustainability programme for The Datai Langkawi, the initiative aims to expand with future properties and locations. 

The Four Pillars

The Datai Pledge comprises four pillars: Pure For The Future; Fish For The Future; Wildlife For The Future; and Youth For The Future, which respectively focus on our business operations and ethics; the marine life; the fauna and flora; and the children of the community.
