Pangkor Laut Island

Malaysia | Indian Ocean & Africa

Send a request

The island's population is limited to guests and staff, because the resort and the private luxury estates are the only habitation on this island. Virtually the whole of this 300-acre island is covered in virgin rainforest estimated to be more than two million years old, with magnificent sweeping bays of fine sand along its perimeters. The island is large enough to sustain an abundance of wildlife, yet small enough to have escaped man's exploitation. Nature lovers will encounter a variety of species of colourful birds and plants, including native orchids, yellow pied hornbills, white-breasted sea eagles, crab-eating macaque monkeys and tropical iguanas.

(depending on season and booked accomodation):
From EUR 250 per night (Hill and Garden Villas).
From EUR 340 per night (Sea Villas).
Suites from EUR 600 per night.
Pangkor Laut Estates in the Marina Bay – rates on request.

Pangkor Laut is a privately-owned island off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia facing the Straits of Malacca, 250 km north of the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur.

Pangkor Laut Resort Garden Villas are set amongst tropical gardens at the foot of the hillside. Each villa is composed of 4 rooms. Hill Villas are double-storey units and sit atop the hillside amidst the rain forest, overlooking the tropical gardens, the sea and the larger island of Pangkor. Sea Villas, set on stilts over the sea and linked by wooden walkways, are equipped with an en suite bathroom with large bath and surrounded by windows that provide views of the sea and island. Sea Suites, composed of the Purnama and Suria Suites, are furnished with an entrance hall, a separate bedroom, lounge, a spacious bathroom with a large bath, a separate shower cubicle and TV. Maximum of 2 guests in each suite. The Pavarotti Suite, once occupied by the world-famous tenor Luciano Pavarotti, is a large (100 sqm) bedroom suite with a spacious lounge area, a large balcony, a deluxe open-roofed bathroom, a fully-equipped kitchenette and TV. The suite offers a pictorial tribute to Pavarotti with a number of pictures from his private collection. In the separate secluded Marina Bay the 8 luxury Pangkor Laut Estates were established. Exclusive villa retreats for international guests are for those who want to relax in total privacy. Each Estate is designed in different Southeast Asian and traditional Malayan styles with diverse bedrooms, spacious living areas, pools, jacuzzis and large terraces. Tell us what you prefer.

Seven restaurants and lounges offer a range of dining on the island. The Palm Grove Café offers casual all-day fare.

All of our treatments are conducted in private spa pavilions. 22 beautiful Spa Villas situated over the sea offer direct access to the Spa Village.

Programmes combine physical and spiritual health and well-being, and are based on one of four umbrella concepts: Rejuvenation and Longevity, Relaxation and Stress Reduction, Detoxification, and Romance. Your treatment at the Spa Village will begin with our unique Bath House Ritual, representing various bathing traditions from around Asia.
