The island of Pangkor Laut in the Malacca Straits, in the heart of the Indian Ocean, is the perfect retreat for anyone in search of a peaceful vacation far away from the rest of the world. This small private island is a true haven of peace, and its protected nature contains numerous natural treasures. A total change of scene is guaranteed for guests fleeing the stress of the big cities, since the only residents of the island are guests and the staff of the local hotel complex, the Pangkor Laut Resort. The other residents are the fauna which live in the tropical forest that occupies a major part of the island. This fantastic, more than two-million-year-old virgin forest is home to numerous macaques, iguanas, multi-colored tropical birds, as well as snakes and bats which thrive in this protected space. The flora is also magnificent, and while walking, one encounters some splendid varieties of orchids.
The area is also a paradise for diving enthusiasts in search of the natural treasures of the ocean depths. Boat cruises are also available. To discover the local culture and history, visitors can tour the temples on the neighboring island of Pangkor or admire its 17th century fort, before visiting one of the local markets.
The Pangkor Laut Resort, on the island of the same name, is a five-star establishment which offers its guests an unforgettable vacation. Nature and the enchanting environment of the island are jealously protected, and only one part of the island is used for upscale tourist structures. The rest of the site is still totally unspoiled, and nature runs free to the delight of visitors. In order not to miss any of this incredible natural décor, guests need only take advantage of the hikes and walks proposed by the hotel, in the company of an experienced guide.
For total relaxation, each room is like small Malaysian palace, guaranteeing comfort, intimacy and modern style luxury. The hotel’s villas, nestled in the heart of the forest and often bordering the water, each have names which are invitations to relaxation such as the Garden, Beach or Hill villa. Some have private access to the hotel’s spa, recognized for the quality of its huge number of treatments inspired by Chinese, Indian and Thai traditions. A fitness center and numerous sports installations are available to guests, who can also enjoy wonderful moments of relaxation at one of the two outdoor swimming pools. International cuisine is featured at the hotel’s no less than eight bars and restaurants. Privately organized dinners on the beach with a view of Emerald Bay guarantee a memorable and romantic experience.
“It’s an enchanting place. It’s paradise. When I woke up in the morning, I was very moved, almost in tears to see the beauty of God’s work. This place is a paradise.” Luciano Pavarotti
