“Just a Base”
Reviewed December 21, 2009

Purnama Beach Resort is located abut fifty metres from the beach at Teluk Nipah (Nipah Palm Bay), on the west coast of Pulau Pangkor (Pangkor Island).

Our stay didn't begin well when we arrived to find that they had given away our reservation. It was just before Christmas and the island was crawling with tourists. However, with some negotiation, they found a room for us somewhere.

Our standard cabin had AC, TV and hot water- really more lukewarm. But it was very basic and had no atmosphere, being closed off from even the garden outside, let alone the beach. The Purnama Beach Resort is a resort only in name, as it has no resort-style facilities at all. They were unable to even provide provide breakfast until 10 am and generally offered muddled, if well-intentioned, service.

Overall, this can only be considered a base for your beach-lazing. You won't want to spend much time in your room. That being said, none of the other places looked much better, and the surly, even belligerent, owner at the nearby Seagull, was much less welcoming again.
