Pangkor Laut Resort in Pangkor Laut Island, Malaysia

Radiant blue skies, shimmering white sand beaches and the gentle rush of waves rolling ashore greet you with the inviting call of the tropics as you enter Pangkor Laut Resort. Nestled on a tiny private island in the Straits of Malacca, just off Malaysia's western coast, this fabulous retreat welcomes you to enjoy warm comfort in the lap of luxury. The private villas here are situated either amidst the island's lush forests — looking out from the hilltops — or over the sea itself where guests instantly feel aloft from the cares of the everyday world. Spacious and airy, each room allows the natural beauty of the island to flow throughout, with outdoor baths opening to the sea, large balconies perfect for morning coffee and evening cocktails, and plush beds for each evening. At Pangkor Laut Resort enjoy the true beauty of Malaysia and the soothing ambiance of the sea.

After enjoying a beautiful sunrise while stretched out on your balcony, make your way to The Spa Village whose soothing wellness treatments, borrowed from ancient traditions, refresh and revitalize you for the day ahead. Take a boat trip to the nearby island of Pangkor for a delightful cultural tour, venture out for a snorkeling or fishing excursion or glide along the coast on a sightseeing kayak journey. In the afternoon, enjoy the idyllic, meticulously designed fairways at Damai Laut Golf & Country Club then center yourself with a Tai Chi Quan or yoga lesson. With evening settling over the lush countryside, set out on a romantic cruise along the Andaman Sea, or stretch out next to the pool with your favorite cocktail. Delight in a sumptuous meal that evening, dining over the water, with fine Southeast Asian cuisine of The Straits. Retire to your villa that night, gazing out at the stars shining over the sea, and drift off to sleep amidst the luxury comforts of Pangkor Laut Resort.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

The overall stay experience was very good and I'd like to point out a few notable observations: The massages were great, as were the massage therapists at their occupation, we felt the massages were carried out professionally and the therapists listened to our concerns and advised accordingly. I would recommend you upsell the spa experience as its not well known what this includes. The check in process was a little frustrating, the staff at the marina checked in two sets of people at the same time and this caused a bit of confusion and frustration. A large group of what appeared to be a travel business group seemed to monopolise the check in facilities and the shuttles. We had to wait until after 3 before our room was made available and even then we had to call reception (from the Jamu bar) as they had forgotten to inform us when our room was available. Our room (a spa room) was secluded and very quiet, however it lacked some facilities that were available in hilltop villas (such as a television). None of the rooms were air conditioned, which was a bit of a surprise for a 5* + resort. Considering the heat and humidity I would recommend perhaps adding some air conditioning through the restaurant offerings. I'd like to commend Joyce for being such nice and helpful, she is great with guests and very attentive. A good selection of breakfast items were on offer in the breakfast buffet. Coffee options varied depending on the person serving (some understood what types of coffee were on offer, others didnt) We spent out time during the day sunbathing by the Jamu Bar/Infinity pool. We enjoyed this quiet area and the great pool. The staff are friendly, but it would be nice if they were able to serve drinks to guests on the beach. We noticed that there was a dress code requirement for some of the restaurants, a collared shirt and trousers for men. This seems a little strict considering its a private island resort. We dressed up once on holiday but considering the heat and humidity (see above observation) it made for an uncomfortable meal experience. This is something I think should be addressed, it doesnt make much sense for such a resort and I think puts guests off trying the Fishermans Cove or the Straits (it certainly did with us). We had to make reservations for the restaurants, and rarely were we able to get a reservation for the time we requested. I find this confusing considering its a pretty small resort and all of the restaurants were quiet, even at the time we attended for the reservation (50% occupancy was about what was observed in Uncle Lims, buffet restaurant, and Chapmans Bar BBQ, Jamu Bar). Checkout was our only major problem during our time at the resort. Our travel agent explained that the departure transport had been organised directly with the resort and so we were expecting some information from the resort prior to departure. Two days before departure I began to get concerned so called the Reception and was advised the cost of a taxi to the airport (900 RM) however they were not aware of the departure timings or the fact that we had organised to leave 18 hours earlier (this had been confirmed with our travel agent some months back). Reception were confused (they asked if we were leaving early because we were upset which was not the case) and were told to speak to the concierge to get more details of checkout. Concierge explained that they hadn't yet booked transport and that we had to choose what time to depart (but it had been paid for??). On the checkout day we had to contact reception again to find out the checkout procedure and the time of checkout. This was disappointing and frustrating considering it should have been so simple. Overall, we enjoyed our time, however I think there are a number of areas that could be improved upon to make this a great resort. Thanks

Stayed here at the start of last year but thinking of coming back so reminded me to write a review! We stayed in one of the water rooms and then moved to one of the estates during the last few nights of our stay. We stayed for 10 days and what an amazing time we had. The food is Incredible and the spa was amazing. We loved the restaurant on the rocks and the Chinese is also incredible. The staff were incredible. Especially citi who works over on the estates. Nothing was too much for her, she was a lovely lady who made our stay memorable. I advise doing the Nature trial and going over to the Other beach, the tour guide is lovely and very knowledgable. Ramen at the spa bar was a fantastic bar man too who was also Very attentive. Will be visiting again in the future. Thanks for an amazing stay

Overall, Pangkor Laut is an excellent resort which makes for a relaxing stay and the place is hard to leave. The resort is lovely and the room impeccably clean. Staff are almost always friendly and welcoming. Although food prices are high by Malaysian standards, the resident package makes it affordable. We paid for an upgrade to a beach chalet but it did not seem worth the money as there is a commonly used walking path and a large tree full of bats in between the chalet and the beach, obstructing the view and detracting from the ambience of the location. Emerald Bay is an amazing place to watch the sunset and shuttles are frequent and efficient. There are large trees which offer shade from the heat of the day and the beach is cool and pleasant throughout the day. The visiting wild hornbills at breakfast are quite an experience. The sea around Pangkor Laut with its exclusive beaches is beautiful but after an encounter with a jellyfish at the lovely Emerald Bay, we had second thoughts about swimming in the sea. After searching for studies on jellyfish in Pangkor and other Malaysian resorts at the northern end of the Straits of Malacca, it seems that toxic box jellyfish, including the irukandji variety, are present in the waters in the region but minimal efforts are made to prevent stings. This appears to be an issue not merely for the resort but, more broadly, in the area. We would have swum and snorkelled had there been stinger suits as are commonly available at the Great Barrier Reef but there were none. I later saw a huge jellyfish in shallow waters near Uncle Lims, although that was not a swimming area. It must have been over a foot in diameter. Apparently, Emerald Bay has jellyfish nets but the fact remains that highly toxic jellyfish are at times very small and nets would probably be ineffective in preventing such stings. The hotel land transfers are overpriced and a cheaper option is to take a taxi from Ipoh for half the price. We did not have a good experience with one of their land transfers - a taxi would have been more professional, and the hotel's response to complaints on the reckless driving and dismal service was somewhat insipid. Given the challenges of getting to Pangkor which has no direct flights, I would probably not return there. It is a nice place, but to us one visit was sufficient. Langkawi is far more accessible and beaches such as Datai Beach are, in my opinion, just as beautiful. Likewise, beaches in South Thailand are stunningly scenic and easier to get to. Further, we had more problems with mosquitoes around Pangkor Laut despite the mosquito sprays and vape mats.

Just returned from another weeks stay in this wonderful resort. We see in a previous review that the beautiful Emerald Bay is dirty. We do not agree. We had one day of a dirty beach with detritus being washed in from the Malacca Straits but it was a very windy/stormy day and there was a cleaning team on the beach cleaning it constantly. All other days were calm and detritus free. The hotel cant be held responsible for all of the rubbish tipped into the Straits (part of a much bigger worldwide problem) and they do clean it up as soon as it arrives. Without going into detail about the different aspects of the hotel, the pleasures of being there are translated through the wonderful staff who just make you feel so welcome, so typical of this part of the world and so different to grumpy Europe. We want to single out three exceptional people who helped make our stay so enjoyable, Nasa in housekeeping, a lovely person who we already met on our last visit, Darwin, such a nice guy and manager of Uncle Lim's and Komang, the king of latte in the feast village. There are many more, too numerous to name. We understand that more than 350 employees work in the resort. Only in the pool bar in the evening were we sometimes disappointed, certain resorting to out of place criticism of his employer. Enough of that. We did however have one major disappointment this visit. We have always been there in January and our two previous visits were blessed with superb weather. This time though although it was always around 30Ā°C we saw little sun during our week. It seems that climate change has also arrived in this part of the world. Of course even a hotel of this calibre cannot influence the weather. Marie and John
