Our ReviewA stunning island hideaway with the best overwater villas in Malaysia.Condé Naste once voted this the best resort in the world and they weren’t far off it.
A private island with one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (we can vouch for this), five restaurants all servicing delicious food and incredibly helpful staff – you can’t really ask for more. It takes a bit of dedication to get here as the best option is a four hour drive from Kuala Lumpur and then a 45 minute ferry ride to the island but it is worth it once you arrive. Without a Kids club this hotel isn’t for every family but there is plenty to do with children and the Emerald beach has plenty of shade for very small children. Inca happily sat in the shade and built sand castles all day. The gorgeous jungle covered island has been left relatively untouched and Pangkor Laut has been cleverly built on one side of the island. In Malaysia they are very keen to be as sensitive to the environment as possible. Therefore you find that they tend to blend the hotels into the jungle rather than clear vast areas. This can mean less space for rooms but at Pangkor they got around this but building rooms over the sea instead. It is easiest to describe the hotel as two separate resorts, the main hotel and then the Spa Village (adults only to preserve the peace!). You arrive into the main bay to be welcomed by palm fringed beaches, Overwater Villas and two of the five different restaurants on the island. Above you, clinging to jungle covered hillside, are the aptly named Hillside Villas. Off to your right is the main swimming pool, a wonderful infinity affair with its own restaurant and delicious views over the water. Past these you come to the Garden Suites surrounded by lush gardens (again well named) and onto the wooden decking over the sea that takes you around the cove past the Water Villas (there is a theme to the room names) and on to the Spa Village. With so many rooms types it is essential to get the right one for you. The Garden Rooms and the Hillside Rooms are all in the same style and set up and are the best for young children prone to falling off Water Villas and drifting away. They have four rooms to each house, two upstairs rooms with large open sun terraces and two rooms downstairs. The rooms are well laid out and decorated in the sort of South East Asian chic that is now becoming the bench mark for hotels around the Indian Ocean. Light linens, teak flooring, contemporary bathrooms with large stone baths either outside or surround by glass to bring the outside in. If you want spectacular views across the sea to the island of Pangkor beyond then the Hillside Villas are the best for this. For anyone with short legs or concerned about a hill trek back to their room after a heavy lunch – don’t worry, there is a lift built into the hillside for just such occasions. For those people after something a little different in their sleeping quarters and with children over 12 then the Overwater villas may just be the ticket. These beautiful rooms are set well above the water level (there is no swimming straight from your villa as the tide level differs from 10 foot below to a 20 foot drop!) These villas definitely have the best view and it is always rather fun to try something new. One of the high lights of Pangkor is definitely the food and the huge number of dining options. Each restaurant has a different specialty from International to Malaysian and even Mediterranean for anyone missing European favours. Aside from the five main restaurants you can also have a private dinner on Emerald Beach, voted one of the Top 10 Most Beautiful beaches in the World, or have a private dinner on your own balcony or try the Dining On the Rocks which is a fun al fresco affair on the headland overlooking the beach.
