The Andaman, a Luxury Collection Resort, Langkawi - Coral Nursery Underwater Mini- Artificial Reef Modules

Coral Nursery Underwater Mini- Artificial Reef Modules

The Andaman, a Luxury Collection Resort, Langkawi
Coral Nursery

In December 2010, The Andaman Resort embarked on a coral conservation project after discovering a 6,000- to 8,000-year-old coral reef in its shores that was badly damaged by the 2004 tsunami. The resort elevated its efforts to the next stage of rescue and rehabilitation by building a Coral Nursery to facilitate these objectives. Believed to be the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, it offers guests the opportunity to participate in the unique and inspiring activity of growing new corals which, after 4 to 12 months of nurturing, will be returned to the sea.

Coral Transplanting

Coral Nursery

This hands-on activity begins with an educational talk about corals and the importance of their ecosystem, followed by the transplanting of live coral onto new substrates until they can be relocated for long-term survival and growth.

Coral Clearing

Coral Nursery - Entrance Path

During low tides, our resort team spends a couple of hours removing loose, dead coral as well as other debris caught in the reef. Guests are welcome to join in this meaningful activity. For tide times and heights, contact our water sports center.

Young Marine Biologist

Coral Nursery

Teenagers are invited to spend a day with our Marine and Coral Curator, learning everything from pumping and filtering operations, to taking temperatures and pH tests, to assisting in Coral Ibu sessions.

Coral Reef Walk

A marine biologist takes guests to see the Andaman’s amazing coral reef, estimated to be between 6,000 and 8,000 years old, to learn about its creatures’ habitat, revealing the beauty and fragility of this ecosystem.   More >

Private Guided Snorkel

Coral Nursery

Because visibility of the reef is only occasionally good, snorkeling provides the opportunity to get close and admire the many treasures that exist in our Coral Nursery.

Coral Nursery Feeding

Coral Nursery - Entrance Path

Best suited for younger guests, this activity focuses on the science behind hatching brine shrimp. Participants feel close to our project by assisting with feeding the nursery.
