Pangkor Laut Resort


An exotic hideaway set on an idyllic and intimate rainforest-clad island off Malaysia’s west coast.

This spectacular resort sits in the Straits of Malacca and has a real away-from-it-all vibe. The extensive Spa Village offers a fantastic combination of treatments and therapies from around Asia. If you can tear yourself away from the spa, there are heaps of activities you can get stuck into, including sunset cruises, fishing and island hopping excursions, yoga, t'ai chi and jungle trekking. And across the island from the heart of the resort, you'll find the pretty Emerald Bay cove.

Take a culinary tour of Malaysia, Asia and beyond at the resort's four restaurants and two bars. Dig into fresh seafood at adults-only fine dining restaurant, Fisherman's Cove, taste authentic Nyonya and Hockchew Chinese-style home cooking at Uncle Lim's Kitchen, or alternatively, choose from its romantic private dining experiences. Due to the secluded setting of the resort, we highly recommend you upgrade to the full board package.

The villas and suites are scattered across the resort and on stilts over the sea – a unique choice in Malaysia. Garden, Hill and Beach Villas are set on the island, some overlooking the sea, while the Sea Villas and Sea Suites sit over the water. The resort also has overwater Spa Villas close to the Spa Village, and if you opt for one of these, you can enjoy access to the Spa Village pool.
