Managing Bills etc - Pangkor Laut


I'm going to Pangkor Laut for my honeymoon later this year and was curious as to what was the best currency to take with us and how bills were dealt with in the hotel.....for example did you find it easier to run a tab or pay as you go....

any advice appreciated.

1. Re: Managing Bills etc - Pangkor Laut

I have been to Pangkor Laut a number of times. Since the whole island is one single hotel it is easier to run a tab and pay at the end. Curreny is in Ringgit.

However, it is best to book a package with a travel agent that covers the following -

a. Limo or Helicopter transfer from KL to Lumut and back

b. Speed boat transfer from/to Lumut-Pangkor Laut

c. Meals

d. Spa sessions

I have found this to end up a lot cheaper in the end. In such a case, you really do not have much else to pay for except alcoholic beverages

...unless u are staying at the ultra exclusive (and expensive) Pangkor Laut Estates...for that normal rules don't apply...
