What You’ll Love:
The Resort – Five-star indulgence on your own villa-only, private island
Enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience in a jungle island habitat with world-class service that was rated as one of the Top Resorts in Asia in the 2017 Conde Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards. Surrounded by lush forest, fine white sand and gorgeous green waters, the Pangkor Laut Resort is the perfect place to find solace from the real world and enjoy a romantic retreat with your special someone.
With seven bars and restaurants including a waterfront beach club and a number of exciting and mind-invigorating experiences—like water sports and tai chi—there are an array of ways to keep your body and mind busy in paradise.
But if you’re opting to switch off, enjoy a 50-minute couples spa treatment for two at the inspirational Spa Village in your very own private spa pavilion. Indulge in a series of special body treatments for him and for her, based on ancient Malay wedding traditions that have been practiced for hundreds of years. Enjoy the royal treatment, fit only for a warrior and his princess, and come out feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
The Villa – 71sqm of contemporary elegance nestled within the gardens
Wake up in a tree-enclosed Garden Villa and feel at one with nature, in an ultra-private setting. With stylish traditional island décor, a deluxe open en-suite bathroom featuring a lavish over-sized bathtub and an outdoor sundeck with beds to lounge on, there’s nowhere else you’ll experience more luxury seclusion.
Overwater Upgrade: Floating elegantly over the azure waters, the unique Sea Villa stands elegantly on wooden stilts and offers unbeatable sweeping views of the gorgeous horizon. The villa comes complete with an expansive overwater, outdoor deck and a lavish shower that opens onto the sea.
Deluxe Upgrade: Upgrade to the ultra-luxe Spa Villa and enjoy the same overwater bungalow experience plus direct access to the Spa Village. With this indulgent upgrade, you’ll enjoy exclusive access to the Spa Village pool and the entire adults-only Spa Village area.
Overwater + Deluxe Upgrades: Select either of these packages and arrive at your private island in James-Bond style with return airport and island speedboat transfers. Enjoy a private pick up and drop off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) complete with in-car Wi-Fi, provided bottled water and cold refreshing towelettes. Plus, indulge in an additional 50-minute couples spa treatment for two and one multi-course a la carte dinner for two at the resort’s Fisherman’s Cove.
The Food – Feast on daily buffet breakfasts and enjoy unique dining experiences with your stay
Wake up to a daily buffet breakfast served at Feast Village and enjoy diverse culinary offerings from the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Plus, enjoy warm flaky pastries from the restaurant’s on-site patisserie.
Reward a long day of relaxation with two sunset drinks to share on the deck of the Royal Bay Beach Club. With views of the infinity pool and the sea beyond, unwind in a beach club setting that transforms into a chic chill-out lounge by evening and sip on a hour wine or beer, before enjoying one dinner for two at Uncle Lim’s Kitchen.
A backbone of the resort and a big part of what makes it so special is Chef Lim Fang Tat—known by all as “Uncle Lim”—who has been with the resort since its opening in 1985. Heading the team at the resort’s Uncle Lim’s Kitchen, Uncle Lim cooks up a gastronomic storm with authentic Hock Chew and Nyonya home cooking in a unique venue built atop a rocky outcrop overlooking the ocean. With no menu available, each dish is made to suit guest’s individual tastes and dietary requirements, making it a truly unique experience.
Plus, enjoy an additional dinner dining experience with one dinner for two at Feast Village where diners will be introduced to local delicacies and flavourful Malay staples.
The Activities – Take a jungle walk for two and get ultra-romantic on a sunset cruise
Turn up the romance on a sunset cruise with your special someone and begin the experience with a refreshing beverage aboard the resort’s traditional teakwood Oriental junk. Then cruise around the private island, passing untouched beaches, gorgeous rainforest and unique local birds along the way. Throughout the cruise you will enjoy free flowing house wine, beer and soft drinks and delicious canapes as you take in the striking landscape of the island from a different angle.
Take an exciting guided jungle trek in the island rainforest that is estimated to be over two million years old. Led by a resident naturalist, you have the option to take one of two trails: a shorter, refreshing trek through the northern perimeter or a longer, more invigorating trek through the southern perimeter that’ll boast striking, top-down vistas of the sea. End either trek at the gorgeous Emerald Bay for a refreshing dip in the, you guessed it, emerald waters.
Additional activities are available at an extra cost and include deep-sea fishing excursions, island hopping cruises, snorkelling excursions and a large array of water sports.
