Quite lovely island, with good food at the 4 restaurants at which I ate. Excellent breakfast buffet. I won't repeat much of what has already been written, but will add a few notes that may help others. First, the walls in at least the Hill Villa in which I stayed are not as soundproof as those in a hotel. Not...

If you really want to get away from everything, Pangkor Laut is the place to go. As one of the staff said, when asked if he lived on the island, "it's a 5 star Alcatraz"! There is literally only the choice of pool or beach, and which restaurant to eat in. And of course the spa, which is to die...

One of the best beaches ever! Very spacious cottage, given the fact the resort is already 30 years old - in excellent condition! Exceptional service and very beautiful spa. Prices are very reasonable. The only thing to mention is that traveling with kids you may only dine in the main restaurant and in Uncle Lims ( which is good, but...

We visited Pangkor Laut resort, for our honeymoon and it was just perfect. We spent one week in a Hillside villa and one week in a sea villa, in order to experience something a bit different. Both were stunning, with beautiful views and quality with twice a day cleaning service, which was great. The island is beautiful, with two pools,...

We stayed at Pangkor Laut resort as a family of four in two hill villas to celebrate New Year. The location of the hotel is stunning. The most beautiful rainforest covers the small island and stretches almost to the edge of the sea. Emerald Beach is probably one of the most gorgeous beaches I have ever been to with the...

We spent 2 weeks in a hill villa (room 357) and had a fabulous time. The food is fantastic although a bit pricey. The beach is really great with the beach stewards making sure you have everything you need. The rooms are very nice and considering they were built in 1985 they are still in an excellent condition. There are...

The first sight when i walked into the resort, i saw some "burung enggang" which to my surprise how can this species can be spotted here?

Three days at the Pangkor Laut (PL) resort were as fabulous as we had read and heard about. The resort is very beautiful and a three-nights stay is what I would recommend. It is very easy to reach from the mainland (only about 30 min by boat from Lumut Marina). Our Hill Cottage was wonderful (beautiful furnishings, large room and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pangkor Laut is a privately owned island located three miles off the West Coast of Malaysia along the Straits of Malacca. This piece of paradise has been 2 million years in the making, and here you will find one of the world's premier resorts nestling in the shade of forest giants as old as the land. You will find no other resorts - just secluded bays curled around pristine beaches, evening skies woven with colour, and a deep sense of serenity reserved exclusively for our guests. A combination of luxury, natural beauty and age-old wilderness woven together to produce an environment where peace and magically memorable moments are the currency. Of the island's 300 acres, only a fraction has been developed to house the Resort and its eight Estates. Wooden buildings blend seamlessly into the forest as if nature had been the architect dictating how walls curve around foliage, and roofs open up to allow trees to continue on their journey to the sky. Nature is respected here, almost revered, and it rewards visitors in ways that simply need to be experienced. ... more   less
