“Great for families!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We agree with all of the wonderful things that other guests have said, so we will review Nipah from a family perspective.
Both Alicia and Anuar took time to get to know our kids, by the time we left we felt like we had become part of the Nipah family. This is a safe, healthy environment for families. The children played soccer in the large open space in front of the a-frames, as well as worked on school and art in the common space. We felt great because our children were able to be themselves, run around, play with A&A's little daughter and know that their presence was wanted there. Other traveling families will know how important this is. We enjoyed the DIY breakfast. The common area has a guest fridge so we made our own lunch using the available dishes and cutlery. A tip would be to go to one of the large supermarkets near Lumut (if possible) and stock up on a few things, as groceries are limited to the basics on the island.
It is a short walk to the nicer beach and the little village. Nice to be set off the main road as it is very quiet at night. Alicia and Anuar went out of their way to make sure that we had all we needed and were always able to offer tips on where to go to eat and even on where to go once we left Pangkor Island.
This kind and lovely couple are putting everything they are into this guesthouse and it shows! While there we were invited by other guests to join in their Italian feast they were making for A&A and we also got to celebrate Nipah's #2 Guesthouse in Malaysia Award from Trip Advisor. What fun! We planned to stay for one week, but stayed for 10 days.

After a trip trough India, Sri Lanka and the south of Malaysia, this felt like coming home. Anuar and Alicia, the owners, are very friendly and laidback and they just want you to have a good time.

The place is a little bit expensive if you're a budget traveler, but the breakfast and hospitality are the best we got in Asia (till now).

Chalets are charming, clean and good equipt with aircon and TV. Cold shower and only Wifi in the main area (which actually makes it more of lively place than when everybody would have wifi in the room).

My girlfriend and I lucked out by getting an A framed cottage at the Nipah Guesthouse due to a cancellation and last minute booking. On a whim we decided to go away and found ourselves at this amazing little spot. Like 99 percent of the reviews on here, the owners were great, friendly, and helpful. On our check out day we had an 8 PM bus to catch, and they allowed us to come back to the hotel after hours after checkout, before leaving, to shower and use there washroom facility. The room was clean, and unique in regards to the design, which i liked. The DIY style breakfast was great, and the area was a nice spot for relaxing at night over some tea. The location was just a short walk away from the beach and food stalls. Coral Beach, just around the corner from the main beach was not over crowded, even during peak season. The water was clear, and the sand was white...absolutely beautiful! I will definitely be back to visit Nipah Guesthouse, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Pangkor.

The best family holiday we have ever had, definately returning. In every respect, this was a wonderful family holiday. This was almost entirely due to the energy and enthusiasm of Anuar and Alia who somehow managed to unobtrusively orchestrate an action and leisure packed holiday based from their delightful "home from home" guesthouse. The entire A frame, loft, chalet and guesthouse we used were clean, quiet and spacious for our family of 25 and very well maintained. Overall, thanks to Anuar, Alia and little Aila we have had a really wonderful holiday experience, with some unforgetable memories. None of us wanted to come home.

No words we could write can adequately do justice to the superb facilities at Nipah Guesthouse. All the boxes tick excellent; cleanliness, hospitality, breakfasts, views, the Chalet.
I would just like to add, that being at Nipah Guesthouse with Anuar, Alia and little Aila is such a real pleasure, and we enjoy every moment of it. We would never think of wanting to go anywhere else, since we found Nipah Guesthouse while visiting Pangkor.

We have stayed at Nipah Guesthouse at the start of our holiday for four days and we were really enthousiastic, so we decided to come back for another 6 days. Anuar and Alicia gives you the feeling that you are very welcome. We stayed in a A-Frame Cottage, a very clean and cosy accommodation. It is a lovely place to relax and to get your rest.


In short, this is THE place to celebrate your holiday on Pangkor Island!
