Pangkor Laut Holidays

Coconuts and palm trees on the beach, restaurants made of granite and silk and sea eagles touring the sky… Pangkor Laut holidays are an extraordinary island escape.

As your speedboat sets off from Pangkor you’ll get your first glimpse of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. And you’ll have about fifteen minutes to start mentally ticking off what you want to do when you first arrive on the island… a Japanese bath ritual in the decadent spa, a trek through oriental pied hornbill-filled rainforest or a dip in an infinity pool which seemingly sinks into the sea. Pangkor Laut holidays are a two-million-year-old paradise and a world away from real life.

Whether you’re waking to the high-pitched chirps of macaque monkeys or kayaking over bright blue seas, with 300 acres of nature at your fingertips and nothing but jungle, beach and sea in sight holidays to Pangkor Laut impress. Bleached out boardwalks lead to lavish sea villas on stilts, hideaway houses in tropical forest give Tarzan and Jane a run for their money and those cheeky-smart monkeys will try to steal your sunglasses, but it’s all part of the entertainment.

Fancy escaping to a private island? Our Personal Travel Experts are available to help craft your bespoke Pangkor Laut holiday.
