Impact Report

We are pleased to present the inaugural edition of The Datai Pledge Impact Report. This document details the achievements and people at the heart of The Datai Pledge since its soft launch in 2019, as well as our commitment to the continued development of the community, wildlife and paradise that surrounds us.

“The whole concept of travel has undergone a seismic shift. We have always believed that travel has the potential to be transformative; not only for the traveller but additionally for the host community.”
Arnaud Girodon, General Manager, The Datai Langkawi | Executive Administrator, Board of Trustees, The Datai Pledge

This report of 100 pages details the very reasons for creating The Datai Pledge, the milestones accomplished and targets to be achieved for each of the four pillars, together with our partner non-profit organisations. At the heart of the operations are of course the many people who have made an impact through their dedication and rigour, and especially so in this trying period of time; Partners, Advisors, Pillar Leaders, Committee Members and Board of Trustees.
