Before I go further, pleaseee..don't get confuse between Pangkor Island (PI) and Pangkor Laut Resort (PLR). Mostly people do ;-P. Tracked down my unforgettable memories back in year 2006...let's share the holiday experience...

Pangkor Laut Resort is a privately owned island located nearby to Pangkor Island wholly managed & owned by YTL Resort. This piece of paradise has been 2 million years in the making, and here you will find one of the world’s premier awards winning 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 all guests.

Infinity pool at PLR overlooking the ocean

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. Nature is respected here, almost revered, and it rewards visitors in ways that simply need to be experienced.

Pangkor Laut consist of three properties - the PLR itself, the Spa Village and the most expansive is the Estate.

Pool at Spa Village

How to reach this island? Simply take an hour big & comfy ferry ride at PLR owned ferry counter at Lumut jetty. The ferry can accomodate about 40-45paxs/trip. Upon arrival at the island, you'll be greeted by a group of musician who will welcome your stay...hemmmm so aloha.. :-)

My room is at first floor Garden Villa. Set amidst the lush tropical gardens of the Resort and housed in double-storey units. The villas on the ground floor have a huge bathtub in a private courtyard while the bathrooms in the villas on the first floor open out to a view of the surrounding rainforest. These villas located near to reception hall, Feast Village Restaurant, Gift shop, Library and etc. But I found the ground floor is better & more romantic because of the open air bathtub :-)

Because of the generous size of the island, walking from one place to another will be quite distance. Don't worry! There is complimentary 4w shuttle service provided at scheduled time to drive you within the island. What u have to do is wait at any of the pick up points available around the island.

Royal Bay Beach Club restaurant located at main pool

Food at PLR means heaven! Extremely delicious with more than 5 restaurants to choose for. Just pick your restaurant to experience a fine dining at this 5star resort -Fisherman's Cove, Uncle Lim's Kitchen, Royal Bay Beach Club, Chapman's Bar and few more. The most I can't forget is Terrayaki Beef at Royal Bay Beach Club...emmmm.yummyy..gulpp..gulppp...or perhaps after swimming or relaxing at Emerald Beach, you could have lunch at Chapman's Bar. A restaurant laid by the beach with blue skies roofted, sea breeze walled & white sandy floored...whoooo goshhhhh

Yummmmyyylicious meals from clockwise: Fish & Chips, Choco Ice-cream, Terrayaki beef and Fisherman catch..huh!

Daily breakfast is served at Feast Village, a restaurant facing the Garden view villas and overlooking the ocean. Friendly peacocks & peahans mingle freely around the restaurant especially during breakfast. Peacock especially will come close and sometimes spread its wings to impress you with their beauty! whooaaaa..pretty bird

Do you known that Spa Village has been ranked as Number One in the World in Top 100 List?!..hemmm...beside that there are many more awards won by this resort and it has been ranked the foremost paradise vacation spot and spa on the planet. ..and it’s right here in Malaysia.
