Langkawi Island is popular among local and foreign tourists for its bustling beaches, which is synonymous with water sports and recreational activities. Soon, Explicit Eco Marine Sdn. Bhd. will be adding an exciting new attraction to the island with the opening of Asia’s 1st Interactive Seawater Theme Park, the Perdana Quay Eco Marine Park around the first quarter of 2021.
Located strategically in Pantai Kok, Perdana Quay Eco Marine Park will be the first phase of a proposed six-phase development project which will span over a period of 10 years. Visitors will be able to bask in the sun and relish in the ultimate underwater world experience at the theme park.
The first of its kind in Asia, the interactive seawater theme park will give visitors an opportunity to explore the marine ecosystem within a safe environment. Visitors will be able to interact directly with a host of diverse marine species found locally and imported from overseas in crystal-clear world-class seawater pools.
The Perdana Quay Eco Marine Park is a perfect getaway for the whole family. There’s something for everyone here. The 10-acre park comes with a deep-water pool, snorkeling pool, shark pool, infinity pool, kids fun pool, sea walking, touch pool, artificial beach, duty free shopping centre, retail shops, restaurants, and cafes. If you’re looking for a relaxing experience, you can check-out the beach atmosphere and chill-out in any of the cafes. There are several eateries with fresh seafood for foodies on a gastronomical adventure. Meanwhile, visitors can also head to the duty-free shopping centre and enjoy great bargains there.
Explicit Eco Marine Sdn. Bhd. Managing Director Kelvin Foo Chian Wei’s philosophy is to give visitors a unique underwater world experience. They’ll be able to swim up-close with fishes of different shapes, sizes and colours. Visitors will get a glimpse of rare species of marine life not commonly found anywhere else. As for the adrenaline seekers, you can swim with the sharks in our shark pool for an incredible experience!
“Our aim is to get people outdoors to live an active lifestyle and engage with the wonders of marine life. There is so much to do all day at the Perdana Quay Eco Marine Park! Apart from the seawater pools, we also have sea walking, a unique feature where visitors can actually walk in the seawater pools and watch the beautiful marine life swim all around them. If you don’t want to get into the water, you can still get active by taking our Zumba classes and give yourself a total workout. As for the little ones, our Kids Playland has got so many fun and exciting games to keep them busy for hours!”, he added.
The Perdana Quay Eco Marine Park is also committed to raising awareness and fostering conservation of marine biodiversity in a fun and adventurous way. As part of our effort to conserve marine life, we plan to develop a conservation breeding program and have already started cultivating life corals, sea grapes, giant clams, lobsters, prawns, crabs, and oysters. Meanwhile, our Marine Life Rehabilitation Centre will provide medical care and quarantine facilities to treat injured marine life in and around Langkawi and Kedah,” he added.This has been a challenging year for the tourism industry. The COVID-19 pandemic had put industry players in a hard spot. With the easing of the Movement Control Order (MCO), domestic tourism is picking up. People want to get outdoors after being in lockdown for several months.
“We are in this together. We need to manage the recovery in a safe manner and attract tourists. This is essential to help the tourism sector bounce back, create job opportunities and rejuvenate the economy”, said Mr. Kelvin Foo.
Perdana Quay Eco Marine Park will definitely be a unique attraction for Malaysia’s tourism and is set to attract local and international tourists once the borders reopen
