Travelers' Choice
Pangkor Laut is a privately owned island located three miles off the West Coast of Malaysia along the Straits of Malacca. This piece of paradise has been 2 million years in the making, and here you will find one of the world's premier resorts nestling in the shade of forest giants as old as the land. You will find no other resorts - just secluded bays curled around pristine beaches, evening skies woven with colour, and a deep sense of serenity reserved exclusively for our guests. A combination of luxury, natural beauty and age-old wilderness woven together to produce an environment where peace and magically memorable moments are the currency. Of the island's 300 acres, only a fraction has been developed to house the Resort and its eight Estates. Wooden buildings blend seamlessly into the forest as if nature had been the architect dictating how walls curve around foliage, and roofs open up to allow trees to continue on their journey to the sky. Nature is respected here, almost revered, and it rewards visitors in ways that simply need to be experienced.

This is my 3rd visit to Pangkor Laut Resort with my wife. This is the 10th wedding anniversary trip with my 2 kids. I'm very impressed with the attentive and effort by Mr. Ong in making my wedding anniversary a memorable one! I can see Mr. Ong talking with guest in almost every corner of the resort to ensure the needs of the guest is well taken care of. He is the real gems of Pangkor Laut Resort. The other staffs who also making my stay memorable is Mr. Yau, Mr. Masum and Mr. Mithu! A great team from YTL Pangkor Laut! I will surely planning another trip here again with my family.

We stayed on the hill terrace and had an amazing view of the sea! The breakfast and dinner buffets were the best with lots of local fare to try. I highly recommend the couple spa treatments and a visit to Emerald Bay and the round island tour is a must. Thanks very much to Magis and the resort ambassadors for making the stay so memorable, especially after a long hiatus from Covid.

We absolutely loved our stay at Pangkor Laut Resort. We had been to Pangkor Island before but the views don't get even close to what you have at PLR. The staff is great, always greeting you by your name and making themselves available to help. The food is amazing!!! Absolutely loved this resort!

The hotel overall needs an upgrade, not in the best of shape...pride itself on as a luxury accommodation but food and amenities desperately needs an upgrade....staff is very attentive but it's just not up there with other properties yet unfortunately. Was slightly disappointed but generally just pleasant stay, nothing to shout about.

Myself and my husband had the perfect honeymoon at Pangkor laut resort. Words can’t describe how amazing the staff were to us, so kind & smiling all of the time. Dinner on the beach was a highlight definitely. I created some footage of the dinner on the beach which got some gets excited when I showed them they actually went and booked the dinner on the beach after viewing it. We stayed at the sea villa & it was Perfect. We loved our lunch down at emerald bay servicing us was rajib who was always so great at his cocktails. We had two couples massages & when I say it was the best massage we ever had, It was the BEST massage we have ever had. Food was great everyday , our fav spots were at the emerald bay & uncle lims. We can’t wait to go back one day & create more special memories. Thank you again

Amazing staff, especially Segar. Continuously assisting us from picking us up at the jetty till the time we were checking out. He even helped to find out that SKS cancelled on us and arranged us an alternative flight back!! Hotel is not bad considering how ancient it is, however its definitely not stroller friendly as you'd need to carry it around at certain areas, especially if you got the villa on the garden. There's also no where to hang at during the day that is air conditioned as everywhere is opened air, so it can be very very warm during the day. Food is good and loving how frequent the shuttle is to the private beach.

Once again we have had an amazing 2 week stay at beautiful Pankor Laut. This is the third time we have stayed here and it never disappoints. We just love the natural beauty of this tranquil island and all the wonderful animals living amongst it. We especially love staying in the hill villas as the views are so beautiful, plus it’s gorgeous being surrounded by the lush landscape. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh food (particularly the seafood) and have never had a bad meal. This trip we were lucky enough to enjoy dinner on the rocks for the first time. The meal itself was divine as was the setting - on the rocks at Emerald Bay. We were looked after so wonderfully by Rajib who couldn’t do enough for us. He is most definitely a credit to PLR - so polite, warm and professional. Fisherman’s Cove was also another dining highlight for us. The atmosphere at this restaurant (setting) is just so serene. The food is also tremendous and is always of the highest quality. For me, the spa is an absolute highlight of my holiday! I love the treatments available, in particular Ayurvedic which is very authentic & utterly amazing. Doctor Panda (resident Indian doctor/fab yoga teacher) devised me (and my husband) a wonderful 5 day treatment plan following a thorough consultation. He is highly professional, knowledgeable and is thorough in devising the ‘right’ individual plan for you. I was lucky to have Ann as my therapist (Nila for my husband) who were both absolutely brilliant, emphatic, warm and professional. The spa itself is also lovely and definitely enhances the whole ‘spa experience’. Alongside the spa, we also enjoyed some beach time at Emerald Bay, enjoying many lunches and fabulous sunset cocktails. The staff at the beach are great and make some ‘mean’ cocktails. Spending time at the beach is definitely relaxing and is set in such a stunning setting. The wildlife is definitely an attraction for us, and so enjoyable seeing the resident wild boars running around of an evening. Overall, our experience has been truly wonderful. We cannot praise the staff enough for all they do. Tohid, Dewi and Chef Ali couldn’t do enough for us at breakfast - accommodating all our needs/requests. Ahamed is a credit to the Jamu Bar & the adult pool area. He certainly looked after us!!!! There are so many other tremendous staff members who I have not mentioned. Honestly, there are too many to note as they are all - just wow! So, until next year! PLR. We will be back to see you all again and we cannot wait!!!

The beach has been full of rubbish since our first day arrived in the resort on 15/09/22. The operator of the “one island one resort” has neglected his responsibility to maintain cleanliness of his beach for the safety and comfort of his guests. Our sixth come back to this resort has been a let down.

My ex-girlfriend (now Wife) & I first stayed in PLR in June 2008. Had an amazing time and we promised to be back. Never expected that 14 years (Aug2022) would have passed before we came back to PLR again. We came in a group of 5 consisting of 2 adults, 2 senior citizens & 1 toddler. Other than some small changes in landscaping and decor, everything else have been maintained really well & looks very good. The cleanliness of the whole resort is still very good too. Emerald Bay is still in pristine condition. The food was really better than average in all the restaurants we ate. I was particularly happy that Breakfast & Dinner at Feast Village has reverted to Buffet style. We definitely overate as we enjoyed the food so much. However, the true gem of the resort are the people who works there. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, all the staffs were courteous and helpful to all our needs. Special mention to Yau who help us with check in and some last minute villa changes. Also to Helmzy the driver who were extra careful & helpful with the 2 senior citizens in our party. Tame & Hassan who always check in on us to see if we need anything else. Chef Liza with her delicious Beef Rendang. Not forgetting, Mr Ong (aka One Nice Guy) the resident manager, who came to check on us on our 1st night dinner, serve us lunch on the 2nd day & also answer some question we had about the resort. Definitely our favorite resort in Malaysia.
