State-of-the-art yachts are now a dime a dozen in the world of luxury travel but what about cruising luxuriously aboard a private traditional Malay sailing ship?
In December, luxury Malaysian resort The Datai Langkawi is bringing back its exclusive Naga Pelangi charter for its guests to explore Langkawi’s shimmering seas and captivating coastline.
Shaped like a traditional Malay junk schooner from the 1300s, the Naga Pelangi is a yacht adorned with traditional pinas-design but finished to modern cruiser standards.
This 97-foot traditional wooden schooner-replica is now available for private hire in packages including 4-hour discovery cruises to 10-hour private charters, which allows you to enjoy the best of Langkawi waters in a day.
For shorter, yet memorable experiences, the Sunset Cocktail Cruise (3 hour course) will have you in bliss with delectable cocktails and champagnes, while overlooking the last radiant embers of light casting a blaze of colors over Teluk Datai.
