Coral Nursery


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 Experiences


Coral Transplanting
This special 30-minutes, hand-on activity begins with an educational talk about coral and the importance of their existence in the ecosystem, followed by the transplanting of live coral fragments onto mini Artificial Reef Modules (ARM) that will be nurtured in the coral nursery for a period of time. After which,  these mini ARMs are then relocated to the sea to provide various fragile sea life with a habitat.

Every Mondays & Sundays, 3pm. Complimentary.
