Paradise 101

Welcome to Paradise. Whether your idea of bliss is relaxing on a day bed with a cocktail, snapping Instagram-worthy photos, or the adrenaline rush of watersports, you'll find it at private island, Paradise 101.

Only 1km from the shoreline of Pantai Kok, Paradise 101 enjoys exquisite views of the turquoise Andaman Sea from its white sandy shore. The island provides the ultimate hub for adventure, leisure, and relaxation.

Watersport options range from kayaking and an inflatable waterpark to jet skiing, parasailing, and banana boat rides. Venture further with an island-hopping tour via jet ski or boat, or see Langkawi from afar on a sunset cruise.

Back on the island, the fun continues with a family-friendly zipline, private beach, and a series of giant "bird nests" providing the perfect setting for your next Instagram photo. Need a time out? Book a cozy daybed on the south side of the island to simply relax and watch the calm, silk-like water. All you need now is your favorite cocktail.

Speaking of cocktails… visit OMG! Bar and Restaurant at the island's center to sample traditional Malay cuisine or order a classic pub meal for something more familiar. Don't forget to try the signature cocktails crafted by a certified mixologist.

COVID-19 Response

In response to Malaysia's Relaxed Movement Control Order (RMCO), Paradise 101 has implemented measures to encourage social distancing and comply with governmental SOPs. These include:

  • Reduced operating hours to 10am-6pm Sunday-Thursday, and 10am-8pm Friday-Saturday.
  • Temporary closure of the Aqua Park and zipline activities.
  • Regular sanitization of common areas.
  • Temporary cancelation of live band on weekends.

Backstory

Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 natural islands, but 2 additional islands, numbered "100" and "101" were constructed by the Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) as wave breakers to protect the main island from tsunamis.

The 101st island was leased by Naam Adventure and developed as a hub for leisure, watersports, and events. Construction activities focused on sustainability building around existing trees and using natural and local products wherever possible.

Paradise 101 officially opened to the public in late 2015.

Etiquette

Do:
  • Wear life jackets in the designated swimming area (even if you can swim).
  • Listen carefully to activity safety briefings and obey all instructions.
  • Keep jet skis at the back of the island to minimize noise pollution and avoid going too close to rocks.
  • Give early notice when booking extra activities or daybeds at the activities desk.
  • Keep changerooms dry and tidy for the next user.
Don't:
  • Leave belongings unattended at the beach or bar. Hire a locker instead.
  • Swim outside the designated area due to the presence of jet skis and boats.
  • Show too much skin when not swimming or doing watersports.
  • Smoke outside designated smoking areas.
  • Bring food or drink from outside the island.

Scorecard

Best Parts:
  • Instagram-worthy photo spots like bird nests across the island.
  • Private beach perfect for catching some sun.
  • Range of activities from volleyball, kayaking and an inflatable Aqua Park to ziplining, jet skiing, and parasailing. Most activities are quite affordable.
  • Jet-ski or boat tours to explore nearby islands.
  • Music can always be heard with 60 speakers positioned across the island.
  • Signature cocktails at OMG! Bar.
  • Complimentary boat transfers included with every activity booking.
  • Focus on safety with full-time lifeguards, jet-ski marshals, and detailed safety briefings for all activities.
Could Be Better:
  • Requirement to wear life jackets while swimming in the designated swimming area - the water is quite shallow.
  • Difficult-to-understand inclusions in bundled packages.
  • Expensive cost of some activities like parasailing and sunset boat cruises.
