16 adults and 17 kids on a private island...recipe for disaster? Not if you are on Pangkil. Whilst the island is stunning, the water pristine and the accommodation seriously cool, what makes this place special is the attention to detail and the service. They think of everything - from complimentary sunscreen and mozzie repellant scattered strategically across the island to... More

We rented Pulau Pangkil for my husband's 40th birthday and invited our friends to celebrate. if you get a good group together you will have a great time. The staff are very attentive, food is very simple, fresh and tasty and the island is clean and beautiful. We played volleyball and soccer on the beach, sang to guitar and enjoyed... More

Our second amazing holiday to Pulau Pangkil. Everything about it was great (the island, the ocean, the pool, the food, the staff). Happy to highly recommend Pangkil to just about anyone. We were a group of 20 with 8 kids under age 7, but it would be an equally great experience for families with older kids or a group of... More

We rented the island for 10 persons, for my husband's birthday, and it was truly an experience that we will all never forget. The island is beautiful and the accommodation strikes a good balance between being rustic, and yet still comfortable. For example, there is no air- conditioning, but fans are plentiful and each bed is mosquito-netted. All villas overlook... More

A group of us, 22 including 6 kids rented the island for November 21 - 23, 2014 as our Thanksgiving getaway. We couldn't have anticipated how fabulous this weekend would turnout. Even though we hyped it up right up to the day we left, it still exceeded our expectations. My kids could not stop talking about the fantastic time they... More

Pulau Pankil is amazing and the team running the island is even more astonishing! I organized a weekend trip to Pulau Pangkil for a group of approx 50 ppl, which turned out to be one of the best weekends in my life. From the very first day of preparation until our return to Singapore, we were in excellent hands. Obviously... More

We rented the island for a group of 30 pax, families with children of all ages. The feeling of being on a remote island with only friends around is second to none. The staff is very friendly, and the food excellent. Count 5 to 6 hours door to door from Singapore, which is a serious trip for 2 days only.... More

I've just returned from Pulau Pangkil last weekend and I cannot agree more with all the raving reviews here. Having an entire island to yourself and your friends is such a luxury. All of us were very impressed with the service levels and definitely the food. We think we put on 2 kg each after the trip. All the houses... More

We came hear as part of a work retreat. The island is in a beautiful location, we took a ferry from Singapore, bus across Bintan island and then spped boat to the island. We were greeted on the beach with a refreshing cocktail and shown to our huts for a well deserved shower. The huts are of varying size. I... More

We rented the island for a friend's 35th. The experience was nothing like it. I have seen beautiful islands before and this is one of them, but the service provided just tops everything!
