This is a lovely resort but I think the restrictions placed on families with children undermines what would otherwise be a great place. You can only use 2 restaurants if you are with children, given that you are stuck on a private island this is very restrictive. If you add to this that you will often need a reservation in... More

Pangkor Laut was our 3rd stop of our Malaysia trip and so glad we came here. Our previous destination was Penang and journey to the resort was easy- just take bus from Butterworth to Lumut which takes 2.5 hours then a 10 min taxi to the marina jetty to catch the speedboat to the island. The bus journey only cost... More

Returned to the resort after two years and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice relaxing and friendly. Get greeted by the GM and costumer relation manager upon our return visit which makes our stay even more personal. Nice rooms, hill villa, good restaurants. Pool and beach are heaven to relax. Very nice, although as most hotels and resorts in Malaysia getting a... More

We stayed here from the 20th until the 25th of April. Ourselves and 2 friends taking 2 of the garden villas. The villas very well equipped and thoughtful in design.

The hotel is really WOW! It is located on a small island at 10-15 minutes ride with the boat from the west coast of the Peninsular Malaysia (the transfer is provided by the hotel and it is mandatory,it's the only way that you can reach the hotel) and at approximately 250 km from Kuala Lumpur (wich meens arround 4 hours...

We were visiting family in KL and they suggested this resort which they had not visited before. What a find! The reception/check in on the mainland was quick and easy. The ferry was exciting and the island looked great. We had booked a Hilltop unit but on arrival my wife's vertigo meant we could not get to the room! The... More

We were in Pangkor Laut to celebrate my birthday, had a wonderful & relaxing 3D2N getaway. Pangkor Laut Resort services were great from the start we arrived at Marina Island for the speed boat transfer to the end of the trip when we left the resort. Staffs are generally friendly especially the concierge guy named Sam Ng that greeted us... More

Pangkor Laut was the most incredible holiday experience. It was absolutely relaxing, the service was 5 star and so were the rooms and the grounds. You MUST have the spa package! We stayed for 5 nights and we felt that there was something new to do everyday. I can not wait to return. :)

Pangkor Laut is simply amazing. We could not have asked for a more enjoyable, or luxurious, honeymoon. The collection from KL, drive to the Marina and speedboat were all organised seamlessly. The Marina even managed to arrange an earlier boat transfer for us as our flight arrived into KL at 6am. This coupled with the fact our room was ready... More

I felt compelled to share that if anyone wants a better cup of coffee to complement the delightful breakfast spread, he or she should ask a server for freshly brewed coffee. Otherwise they will just serve you instant coffee from a jug that they walk around with. A disappointment indeed as we have expected proper coffee to be served automatically... More
