A stay on the 300-acre Pangkor Laut Island off the West Coast of Malaysia means secluded beaches, undisturbed wilderness and five star service. The privately owned island is undeveloped, except for the resort's wooden buildings which blend in with the surrounding jungle.
If you want to be right over the water, ask for one of the Signature Sea Villas on stilts with stunning ocean views. Each villa has a private wooden walkway which connects it to solid land.
If you prefer to be surrounded by lush tropical forests, choose one of the romantic Garden or Hill Villas. Sit on your spacious terrace and enjoy views of secluded bays which you can later explore on foot.
Dining at Pangkor Laut Resort is a feast for the senses. The restaurants search for the finest fresh local ingredients to serve up colorful creations in a unique setting. Vacationers get to choose from 7 dining venues, ranging from the casual beach bar to elegant open-air restaurants.
Spa Village Pangkor Laut incorporates the healing traditions of Malaysia as well as Chinese, Indian and Thai techniques. There are eight treatment pavilions, a deluxe Belian Treatment Pavilion, three Healing Huts and two Bath Houses.
If you plan to center your vacation around the spa, consider booking one of the 22 Spa Villas situated over the sea with direct access to the Spa Village. The spa is consistently rated one of the top spas in the world.
Each treatment begins with the Bath House Ritual which starts with a soothing footbath and an invigorating Chinese Foot Pounding. This is followed by a traditional Malay bath, a Japanese-style cleansing, a dip in the heated Rotenburu pool and finally a gentle Shanghai Scrub. This ritual alone would be considered a signature treatment at many spas, but on Pangkor Laut Island it's just a beginning.
