Resort

LOCATION TYPE

WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Location: Pangkor is a privately-owned island, 1.6 km off the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia along the Straits of Malacca. It has a true tropical island feel with its lush mountain top canopies and white sandy beaches.

History: This island is rumored to be over two million years in the making, and was once a refuge for local fishermen, merchants and pirates.

Service: Guests may enjoy the ease of shuttle transportation at this resort, with pick-up and drop-off points throughout the hotel.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Pangkor Laut is a privately owned island located three miles off the west coast of Malaysia, along the Straits of Malacca. Of the island’s 300 acres, only a fraction has been developed to house the resort’s villas and suites (as well as eight “estates,” private beach houses that are set on a small, secluded cove). The resort has 142 villas and suites, many of which stand on stilts above the sea. Villas set on a garden, beach, or hill feature oversize tubs in a private courtyard or a rain shower next to the rainforest. The resort’s premier accommodation is the two-bedroom Pavarotti Suite, set high on a hill and named after the world-renowned tenor who fell in love with the island. Each accommodation offers modern comforts with traditional touches. The Spa Village located onsite features an extensive range of Asian-inspired treatments. Other facilities include the hotel’s two outdoor swimming pools, a fitness center, three tennis courts and a squash court. Seven restaurants and bars make up the dining scene, serving a wide range of cuisines from traditional Nyonya to Italian. Pangkor Laut Resort is approximately a 3 hour 30 minute drive from central Kuala Lumpur followed by a 15-minute speedboat ride to the island. Alternatively, helicopter charters are available from Subang Airport in Subang, Malaysia, with an approximate flight time of one hour.
